• Summer Achievements and Challenges - 2014

    Good citizens of Equestria Daily, it has come to my attention that we are, in fact, on a summer break period! This means lots of you have free time, which is the perfect time for learning new things!

    What better way to do that than setting GOALS and adding a point value to them?! That's marked progress right there, that's this year's ACHIEVEMENT system!

    It's time to challenge yourself! Always wanted to learn to draw? Then draw! Interested into breaking into the music scene but can't find the motivation? Get some!  Need points to make it more tangible? We got em. 

    Below the break, you will find a boatload of badges to aim for, complete with a point system! Now go improve!

    How this works: 
    Due to the nature of achievements in general, unlocking each of these is under your own digression. You could spend 3 minutes scribbling Rainbow Dash on a napkin and count it, but effort is always more rewarding when it comes to personal goals.  It's entirely up to you though!  

    There are two types of achievements, tiered and singles.  Tiered increase in points as you climb up their categories, and singles are a oneshot deal.  Completing singles may contribute toward an overall tiered one (writing a Rainbow Dash fic for example would count toward the Pony Wordsmith achievement).

    I'd recommend saving each badge in a folder as you unlock them, or printing off the list and marking them!

    If you need some guidelines, a lot of this can be found over at our Tutorial Codex.

    New achievements will be added to the weekly/monthly, so if something you want to see is missing from here, feel free to drop it in the comments.

    You did something pony related, Congrats!

    50 - Pony Pro

    You did a bunch of pony related things! You might grow hooves now!

    200 - Trixie's Stage Hand

    It might not be the most glamorous of jobs, but you do get to work with one of the most glamorous of ponies (as she has made clear countless times since you arrived)

    500 - Defender of the Derp

    It's a full time job with falling pianos, buildings collapsing, and the occasional pegasus shaped missile heading directly for your head, but at least the muffins are good. 

    1000 - Lyra's Anthropology Project

    Hands? Check! Feet? Check! Patchy mane? Check! The realization that everyone in Equestria runs around naked? Awkwaaard.

    1500 - Twilight Sparkle's Fanfiction Editor

    While complimenting her excellent use of the scientific method in deducing the perfect book to read togeather, Rippling Pages slowly caressed Moonlight Twinkle's cutie mark...

    2000 - Cadenza's Love Potion Taste Tester

    If a cute pony falls in love with a hairless monkey thing, you know the potion is working! 

    2500 - Celestia's Hoof Massage Therapist

    It was the only job available, but at least you get to hang with Royalty and take part in all the luxeries that go along with that all week.  Turns out Celestia really likes hoof massages. 

    3000 - Chrysalis's Personal Hugging Post

    Now if only you could convince her to do it when she wasn't in her bug form...

    3500 - Luna's Modernization Instructor 

    As Luna's personal teacher in all things current times, it is your job to spend every waking minute with the princess as she goes about her nightly duties. How far you take that is up to you~ 

    4000 - Alicorn Princess

    You sprouted wings, you grew a horn, you were given a castle, you have a miniature figure of yourself for little girls to gobble up, and you may or may not have changed genders.  The pinnacle of ponyness has been reached!

    4500 - ???
