A lot of things on EQD happen behind the scenes, with minor tweaks to how the site flows and different types of things added that go unnoticed. We usually don't fill the front page with them, but that also has the side effect of no one ever using most.
Starting with this post, when we have a reasonable amount of "patch notes" to post up, we will be running lists. This includes everything from archive updates to new features!
Anyway, get it all below!
If you are like me, you have probably had times where you have an awesome oldschool pony thing on the brain but can't quite remember the title of it to go look it up. A Youtube search brings up countless things, but not quite what you are looking for. Pony has been going on for almost 6 years now, and the fandom is incredibly creative. Unfortunately, some things get lost after a few years.
This goes doubly for a brand new person to the fandom, seeking out the best the brony world has created, but being overwhelmed with silly videos appearing when they search for stuff. Even here on EQD, we don't have any good way of separating the absolutely best of the best to the general higher bar we require here.
Time to make that a bit easier! We are starting up a new project here on EQD. An archive for oldschool fans or guide for new ones on the best of the best in various creative categories. Unfortunately even we are incapable of rounding it all up without missing some things. Our brains have seen a LOT of pony over the years.
Greetings once again, my good friends.In light of recent events, I am hereby dedicating this Nightly Discussion to the one and only, Beebarb! A great mod and caring friend to us all. Let's all honor and cherish him and his memory by enjoying each other's company and conversation. Though he may not be with us here in body, you can be sure he will be here with us in spirit. Would Bee ever miss a Nightly Discussion? I think not.So let's get to chatting, shall we?And if you missed our blog entry regarding Beebarb from earlier, you can find that over here.
BABSCon is back and announcing their 2017 dates, venue, and super cheap early bird pricing. The EQD crew had a blast this year and we look forward to what they have in store. It looks like they are going with a movie theme this year. Check out the full release below the break, including links to register at 20% off and to volunteer.
The IDW Kids panel at SDCC revealed some interesting new information in regards to the upcoming releases for the comic lineup later this year (and next). While not as extreme as what we got with the show, one big point they brought up was an upcoming look at the
origins of Discord(Update: On double confirming with them after the panel, it looks like 2017 will be about Discord, but not the origins. They misspoke at the panel)
On top of this, Cheese Sandwich is getting some love with Pinkie Pie in the 34th. About time right? We also got a teaser of the cover of #31 starring Rainbow Dash and Little Strongheart.
Get images of all of that below the break!
I'd kill to be Daring Do right now. But not a pony. I'd never hurt a pony.
Your final day of Ponies Around the World has arrived! In the end after sorting our duplicates and fake entries we have a whopping 315 total! Thanks again to everyone that entered. This event wouldn't be anything without all of you exploring the world with your cameras.
Now go get more Ponies Around the World below! And as always, catch up on all previous entries at the Ponies Around the World tag. See you next year!
Yesterday I asked for ponified version of the Pokemon Go teams, and today it has already happened. That's delivery right there. Good work fandom!
Teepublic continues their sale on everything. Shirts, posters, whatever else you want are all cheaper. Mainly shirts though.
New pony shirts
Most popular pony shirts
Thanks to Estefan for the heads up!
With Gamestop selling out everywhere on their limited stock, and Amazon holding the exclusive until September 1st in the major retailer section, we have to look elsewhere for Discord, Celestia and Nightmare Moon's initial Guardians of Harmony release. The trend seems to be favoring small stock at various stores that don't usually carry pony merchandise, for their "pop culture" sections.
Barnes and Noble is the most recent one of these, with all three appearing at stores across the USA. You now have another alternate location to scoop them up at!
Thanks to Katney for the heads up.
The second wave of Equestria girls Mini playsets and singles are now available on the websites of Target and Toy R' Us. For the full list of available items, head on down below the break!
The picture description raises a good question: since Twilight was made an alicorn if she had children would there even be a chance she could have alicorn kids or would they be either a unicorn/pegasus/earth pony? Plus if immortality is a perk of being an alicorn would her non-alicorn children be immortal?
Anyhow, enough heavy questions, time for some chatting!
