• Nightly Roundup #473

    Hug edition because I really have a lot to thank you guys for tonight. I never would have imagined the response I got today for a simple science pony's birthday and it completely floored me. Your well wishes, emails, and gifts helped make this the best birthday ever and reminded me why I still do all of this: you guys, the pony community. As long as you guys keep being awesome, I'm certainly here to stay, heh.

    But enough sappiness, eh? Time for some news!

    Thanks again guys...

    More Blizzard and Pony

    Looks like we have more evidence of Blizzard being friendly towards pony. This time we've got the name of an avatar used by one of the staff which happens to be named Sparklepony! Considering they made a whole level in Diablo III filled with ponies and unicorns, I don't doubt they have some fans.


    The Studly Stallion Stache-Off Charity Event

    It's almost November which means it is time to get active to fight the cold... by growing something fuzzy to cover your face! A bunch of Bronies are holding an event hoping to raise money for charity by holding a Stache-Off to raise awareness of men's health and promote a better future! Check out all the details at the site below.

    Houston Fox Affiliate Reports on Bronies

    Ponies in the news...again. While it is a Fox station doing the reporting apparently it isn't too bad of an article. Check it out below.

    German Love is in Bloom

    The foreign versions of Love is in Bloom keep on coming! I'm loving these! Europe, you rock for having such interesting and diverse languages.

    Hasbro Mexico Uses Fan Subtitles!

    In an interesting turn, Hasbro Mexico credits a Brony by the name of moidock for the subtitles they are using to help promote the Royal Wedding! To see the click itself, click the link below, go to Videos, and then click on La Boda de Canterlot.


    Some Cake!

    Gaia Online MLP Costume

    As Halloween gets closer, we are seeing a roll out of pony related costumes! Apparently over at Gaia Online the proprietor of Gaia's Aquarium Store, Mirai, is dressed up in an outfit greatly representing Princess Cadance in her wedding gown!

    Charity Seeking Plushie Makers!

    A charity event is looking for some kind plush makers for help on providing plushies for the event! Check out the details below.

    Hey Everypony! Rakakrd here asking for some help with a rather large undertaking and a pretty cool idea (at least to me). I am starting up a charity and it is still in its very very early stages. I have never done anything like this before, but I do know what I want to do with it. I have a list of plushy characters that I'd like to get made for this charity as the cool swag to be won in the raffle. I intend to get those as well as some other things signed by the crew of the show with a little hopeful help from Hasbro/Hub. Updates to the charity will be made as they occur on my Deviant Art page at Rakkard.deviantart.com so please stop by and leave a comment with your ideas, and suggestions. If you happen to be one of the wonderful people who'd like to help out with this project then please drop me a note through deviant art titled Charity "donation/helper" and I'll get back as soon as I can.

    Postive Article on MLP Panel at NYCC

    Premiere Parties on the Horizon?

    In an article by the New Zealand website Horsetalk, they talk about the upcoming season and give some general information about the show and the fanbase. One interesting thing of note is the possibility of premiere party packs which may be popping up online soon. The article is a little spoilery, so here is the pertinent information for those interested:

    "Viewers can host at-home premiere parties with the “My Little Pony Friendship is Magic” downloadable Playdate Premiere party packs that will be available at hubworld.com. The packs will include party invites, coloring sheets and recommended activities for viewers to host their own ultimate premiere parties."

    Successful Meetups

    Quebec Bronies

    Copy Paste:

    Picture taken from our first MLP:FiM marathon organized by the Quebec Bronies group. The marathon was held on October 12-14. The group of 19 people watched the two whole seasons in a cottage on the week-end. Everyone had a lot of fun, we sang, we yelled and did other things during breaks such as playing Slender on the big screen in the dark! Artists could show each others' works and even took requests for a few people.

    Overall we had a great week-end and it's also the best meet-up of Quebec Bronies group up to date!
