April was absolutely flooded with things to post! I for one welcome out fandom coming out of hibernation! Shame its going to be a slow summer with the mid-season hiatus, but I think we have enough momentum to have a blast coming up.
Below the break, get your pony month in review!
If you missed the last few weeks of news, EQD is now on Patreon. For an explanation on why we would do this, head on over to the announcement post!
As part of the first few tiers of the reward list, we will have a monthly post with completely open submissions for all that just want to plug their own thing. We have a few changes though for the next round based on what we learned here so far:
Changes going forward:
- All tiers can now submit a personal message short 140 character for the monthly celebration post.
- The monthly banner ad slot for creators has been split off and is now $45. Note: This is not for licensees or commercial entities. Only for commissions, etsy creator shops, and other solo fandom creator things.
- Conventions and large events now have an ad slot.
- Editorials have been bumped down to 3 per month
We are looking for new ideas all the time for this. If you have some, hit the comments up!
I'm beyond amazed at how many people are taking part in this. It's so difficult to gauge how well people like EQD these days with how few people tend to speak up, and this is humbling to say the least! Thanks to everyone that donates! And if you can't donate, thanks for just coming here!
Now go get your tier stuff below. As a reminder, be sure to submit a custom message with yours next month for this post to liven it up a bit!
Ready for some new music from Michelle Creber, Gabriel Brown and Nathanael Brown? Well, we've got what you need after the break as they have released a remix for Getting Stronger.
Rock on after the break!
A big part of the fun when new sets of collectible card games come out is finding out what the new rare foil cards are. With new set Marks in Time debuting the first week of June, the hype around new Super Rares and Ultra Rares is building, and so far very few URs have been revealed...
Well, today we're breaking the silence with four exclusive reveals for Equestria Daily - two Super Rares and two Ultra Rares! Head down below the break for a roundup of all SRs and URs spoiled so far, plus the EQD exclusives.
A few days ago, a new episode was revealed via an upcoming DVD from Shout Factory called "Fault in Our Cutie Marks". Surprisingly enough, this episode was already listed on IMDB, and while most of their information tends to be false due to the freedom of anyone being able to edit it, this one was correct.
Continue down below before we go too heavy on the spoilings! Reminder: If you don't want to see posts like this, hit the gear in the nav bar and select "Hide season 6".
Poor Sunburst, not even invited to the dinner despite being the first friend Starlight had connected with. Dick move Twilight Sparkle.
Comic time! Get the rest after the break!
KP and MangaKamen tackle the TRIIXE episode with editing only a week late video release can unleash! Expect the usual ridiculousness, though I'm not sure I agree on Starlight not being in EVERY episode. How can you dislike this mare KP?! She's almost as incredible as TRIXIE!
Get both down below!

"I never liked the quiet. Quiet happens when the audience gets bored. Quiet happens when somepony you love walks out on you, or when you crash into the stands during the show and nopony knows if you’re hurt, but they’re too afraid to ask... It paralyzes you, ya’ know?"
Soarin' should be happy, but even as co-captain of the Wonderbolts, he always feels like he's flying solo. Something's missing, and he'll need to learn what's truly important to find it.

Back in the early days of pony we had little in the way of fandom music. We were far and away from having frequent spotlight posts and Music of the Days here on EqD, but what did come in from time to time was usually gold.
While we got original music and mixes from the likes of Eurobeat and others, EqD also started to receive chiptunes from an artist named RC88. Creating faithful recreations of the show's songs in 8-bit they became quite popular and over the next two years made tracks for the fandom up till his last release in early 2013 with his version of "Babs Seed".
So tonight, let's celebrate with some chiptune! Whether you're an old fan of RC88 or just discovering his music for the first time, I hope you guys find his music enjoyable after the break.
