• Nightly Roundup #341

    I love this time of year. Everything is in bloom, the weather is warmer, and life abounds everywhere as we greet summer.  Enjoy it while it lasts my friends and make some good memories!

    Before we dive into the news I hope many of you were able to see Venus as it transited the Sun today. Crazy another opportunity won't come for another 100+ years!

    And now, without further ado, the news. Check it out after the break!

    Ponychats First Year Anniversary!
    A lot of pony communities celebrating their first year anniversaries lately! Shows how much the fanbase exploded around this time last year. This time our very own Ponychats is celebrating! Check out what Fireany has to say below:

    On 3rd of June our official IRC Network passed the first year of it's
    operating! Over the time it grew from a single dedicated channel to a
    network of various channels suited for all bronies, from the room
    about general pony stuff to the places for fanfiction writers, aritsts
    and brony gamers - everypony will find a place for themselves around
    the network! Don't be shy and join us: Ponychats

    Even More Ponies in Skyrim!

    Now that it is summer I can finally play Skyrim and get some of these pony mods. Some of them look pretty slick!
