    Pony Found in Scratch Programming Language




    This little pony was apparently found within the Scratch Programming Language:

    "There appears to be a pony reference in the Costume library of the Scratch programming language at www.scratch.mit.edu.

    The sprite is named "neigh pony".
    (Personally, I think that the mane-style is reminiscent of Rainbow Dash's mane.)
    I found the sprite as I was looking through the library during my Computer Science class."

    Tonight's Groups Looking For More



    Pointless Ponies Update (01-22-2017)


    Bronies,

    It's never too early to think about "Pointless Ponies" at Whinny City Ponycon! I have already selected the participation prizes and will be pondering what will be the prize that will represent the "Pointless Trophy" for winning the game. Of course, there will still be a cash prize for winning the Pointless Final. You have to go to Whinny City to find out what the cash prize will be!

    As announced earlier, I will have special guest Greggo of Greggo's Game Shows as my "Pointless Friend" for this version. There are still two live surveys out there and everything up until the last episode aired is in play with these questions.

    Survey 5: http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/3012295/Pointless-Ponies-5

    Survey 6: http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/3159921/Pointless-Ponies-6

    Ideally, I would like to get 100 respondents for each survey. Feel free to look up the answers to the questions such at the MLP Wiki (mlp.wikia.com). Your participation is greatly appreciated. Hope to see you at Whinny City Ponycon at the Hyatt Regency Schaumburg from March 31st thru April 2nd.

    That's all for now. More later.
