• Morning Discussion #592

    You know, I just realized that the title to this image shares the same title as today's new episode. Wow, that was some good foresight!

    Today is another new episode day, and one I bet many folks have been looking forward to for quite some time. It will be interesting to see how they further explore a concept that hasn't really been touched on much in several seasons.

    Remember that the spoiler code is only to be used for comments relating to the new episode and spoilers, nothing else. And if your comment contains spoilers regarding the upcoming episode, please put it under the spoiler code so those who don't wish to see it won't.

    Now let's get to chatting!

  • Newbie Artist Training Grounds VI: Day 6

    Now when I asked for apparel last night I assumed I would get the occasional fancy dress here and there but when I saw the pic above hit our compiler I knew we had something special! Excellent job ToisaNeMoifs for creating the most unique piece of the night and a big thank you to everyone for participating as well with yesterday's prompt. In total you all drew 271 ponies in various states of apparel and peril which brings our total up to 1593 ponies!

    Now that you guys have gotten a taste of poses, clothing, expressions and actions for your ponies, how about we take things up a notch and send them someplace different and maybe a bit varied in theme from what our ponies are used to? In order to do that I'd like you to draw a pony in space / draw a pony spacing out.

    I wish you all the very best with the prompt today! Hopefully by visiting such a far-flung location as space or the limitless potential of a pony spacing out will help push your limits and experiment further! As usual, you can find the submission page for today here.

  • Equestria Daily Commenting Rules - Last Updated 6/3/2018

    Friendship is Magic. 

    Regardless of how close to your heart and soul you hold the lessons of friendship taught by our favorite show, being friendly towards your fellow commenters is best for everyone. This place is for you and everyone so have a good time, discuss ponies, and enjoy the site! Be kind and respectful of other site guests. Being rude, disrespectful or making personal attacks against them is not the way. Derogatory and racist slurs and terms are strictly prohibited! This also includes Nazi imagery.

    Shhh! No spoilers!

    Please be respectful of others and their schedules and don't spoil episodes for them outside spoiler related posts. For 24 hours after an episode has aired in the US, any and all discussions outside those posts should be hidden with the html tags for spoilers. Just add at the beginning and at the end of your spoilers to hide them. Once this time has elapsed, free discussion may take place.

    Do not provide explicit content to the masses.

    We have legally underage visitors here and it is your responsibility to keep conversations and content safe for these very minors. This includes links, images, videos, chat, voice and avatar pictures. If you want to say you find a character attractive, that’s all good, but no explicit and overly inappropriate comments please. If you would like to link to SFW content on a generally NSFW site link directly to the image. Alternatively you may link a page (DeviantArt Image, Tumblr post, etc..) with a NSFW source (artist's gallery features NSFW) providing there is nothing NSFW directly visible on said page and after giving a warning that the source is NSFW.  As an extension to this Suggestive/Saucy pics are allowed only with warnings, following the NSFW Rule: No visible genitalia or intercourse, cropped and censored porn are also not allowed.

    No impersonation. 

    Do not pretend to be someone you are not. This includes, but is not limited to, other members of this community and prominent members of other communities. You can pretend to be your OC or a pony though.

    No spam. 

    We ask you to not spam the comment section and take up too much space unnecessarily. This includes huge empty spaces in your comments, posting the same comments over and over, excessive use of emojis, symbols, and anything of the sort. Sometimes something can shock, or anger you a lot, but still try to avoid getting carried away in your anger and posting angry walls of text with capslock.

    Stay on topic. 

    Keep comments relevant and related to the topic of the blog post you're commenting on. For off-topic chatting, or just banter, you can go to the Morning and Nightly Discussions. There is a new one posted every morning and night where you can find all sorts of topics being talked about and engage with other site guests more personally. We also have a Discord server which can be found here. Feel free to join and chat with us and other site guests!

    Threats of suicide are not allowed. 

    While the site likes to foster a helpful atmosphere, and people are always willing to help, it is not really an appropriate venue to post your outcries for help. Please find yourself a hotline if you need help.

    Regarding reporting.

    If you see something you believe to be against our site rules, please take a brief moment to flag it. When someone insults, or harasses you, just flag them and we will take care of the situation as soon as possible. Reporting comments that violate the rules help us tremendously and we greatly appreciate it!

    Formal warnings and bans. 

    When a site guest continuously breaks the rules, the moderation team will issue them a warning. If said guest continues to break rules and ignore the warnings they have received, a ban will be issued. Length of bans vary, depending upon severity of case and will be at the discretion of the moderators. Please do not try and evade a ban. Guests who are found to do this will have their bans lengthened including and up to a possible permanent ban from this site.

    Rules are subject to change to close loopholes! 

    If you have any complaints, issues, or would like to appeal a ban, please contact myself at [email protected]. I will try to answer any and all questions to the best of my ability.

    Thank you,
  • Friendship is Magic Writer Amy Keating Rogers Explains her Theory on Alicorns

    The canon behind Alicorns in Equestria has long been a major debate among the fandom. Back in the earliest of days when Lauren Faust was still running things, there were only ever supposed to be two of them. Quite a bit has changed though obviously with the introduction of Cadance, Princess Twilight, and now Flurry Hearts.

    Amy Keating Rogers held a panel over at Galacon. For those that don't remember her, she was one of the major writers for the first few seasons before being absorbed by Disney. She's also the writer behind the Journal of the Two Sisters, which created quite a bit of interesting canon for Celestia and Luna.

    While admitting that her information can be contradicted at any time by the ever-evolving ideas churned out by the team at DHX, her take on the origins of alicorns is interesting. On a side note, this was the original idea discussed with Lauren Faust.

    Head on down below the break to check it out!

  • Discussion: A Voice Actress Is No Longer Able to Voice Your Favorite Character! Who Takes Their Place?

    (New, but equally awesome singer for Luna now!)

    If you have ever followed a show for as long as pony has been airing, you know that inevitably, some characters end up losing a voice actor and needing a replacement. We've been lucky so far that such a giant cast of main characters has remained somewhat constant. Off the top of my head, only Luna has a new voice, and it's only in her singing form.

    Hypothetical time: Voice actors are busy people, and the one acting for your favorite character isn't available for the next season of pony! Who would you choose to replace their voice? Would you want them to try to mimic the same style as closely as possible, or make up an excuse in the show for the sudden vocal change?

    Be sure to include a character that said voice replacement plays so people can more easily relate to them if they don't recognize the persons real name!

  • A Bunch of People Around the Fandom Review - 28 Pranks Later

    I thought this pic was too adorable not to use it for some sort of header. I don't thinking fencing has anything to do with the wooden sort of fencing Derpy~
