• 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 Policy - Last Updated 9/12/17

    Below you will find the current list of rules regarding commenting etiquette on this site. These rules are subject to change in order to close loopholes. Please do not try and cleverly circumvent any of these rules. They are meant as flexible guidelines, they are not hard and fast.

    1.) Friendship is Magic. Regardless of how close to your heart and soul you hold the lessons of friendship taught by our favorite show, we can all agree that being friendly towards your fellow site guests is best for everyone. This place is for you and everyone so have a good time, sit back and read some news, and enjoy! Please be respectful of other site guests and site staff. Personal attacks are most certainly not allowed here.

    2.) Do not provide porn to the masses. We have legally underage guests who visit this site and it's your responsibility to ensure they can't easily find the good stuff. If you would like to link to a suggestive image, please accompany it with a warning prior to the link. Example: "Warning: suggestive:". Please note this does not include actual porn. If it would be covered up on a public beach, it doesn't belong here. This rule also covers ERP. Please no ERPing in the comment sections.

    3.) No gore content. This includes both drawn and real-life imagery. Some blood is acceptable (scars, etc), but no entrails hanging out and similar things of that nature.

    4.) No derogatory content. This includes both words and images or video. This also includes all Nazi imagery. As noted in the first rule, please be respectful of all other site guests.

    5.) No Impersonation. Do not pretend to be someone you're not. This includes, but is not limited to, other guests on this site, site staff, and members from other communities. Just be yourself!

    6.) Spam and you. No, we're not talking about the rather delicious luncheon meat. We are talking about things such as firsting, excessive use of emoji characters, a single word repeated for an entire paragraph, or multiple comments saying the same thing by one individual, things of that nature. Please keep the spam to your refrigerator. We have the authority to delete and/or edit and condense any comments we feel are excessive. Disqus has an edit feature that lets you edit in additional information to your comment. Please make use of it.

    7.) Stay on topic. Keep comments relevant and related to the topic of the blog post you're commenting in. For off-topic chatting or just chatting about whatever, I direct you to the Morning and Nightly Discussions. There's a new one posted each and every morning and night where you can find all sorts of engaging and diverse topics being talked about. We also have a Discord server which can be found Here.

    8.) Spoilers and wat do? We kindly ask that if you wish to chat about new episode spoilers with your fellow Bronies, that you use the Disqus spoiler tag while doing so. To use the spoiler tag, simply type < spoiler > Spoiler text here. < /spoiler >, without the spaces. This rule is only in effect for 24 hours after the episode airs, regardless of what station or channel airs it. New episode livestream/discussion blog posts do not require the use of spoiler tags.

    Regarding reporting. If you see something you believe to be against our site rules, please take a brief moment to flag it. We simply cannot be everywhere all the time. Reporting comments that violate these rules helps us tremendously and we greatly appreciate it.

    Formal warnings and bans. If a guest is in breach of any of these rules, site staff will issue a warning as a first course of action. If said guest continues to break rules and ignore site staff, a ban will be placed on that guest. Length of bans vary depending upon severity of case and will be at the discretion of site staff. 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.

    If you have any complaints or 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!

    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~
