You gave us The Beetles, we’ll give you ponies. The Fab 6 is on it’s way on the airwaves in The United Kingdom at the end of July, according to an official e-mail sent from the brass at Hasbro Customer Affairs on the Islands. The same source also mentions that the toys will start showing up “in all good toy stores” in September.
Artwork Gallery: 300+ images have been added to the artwork section, for everyone who checks it out. Its been a few weeks since I updated due to time, so that’s what has been collected image wise. At some point maybe we’ll get a way where you can view all the new images, rather than dig for them. More to come by the weekend, as even now I’m several days behind my searches.
WANTED: To keep the site chugging along, I’m looking for reporters. This was talked about before but no one really bit down. Basically you’d find community news and submit it via the submission system. Both Plaster & I now get the submits. If someone does a good job of finding news and such, we will talk about direct access to the news blog (like myself and Plaster have). Hit me up via [email protected] if interested, so I know its not just someone with a ton of submissions.
DerpyChat: For users of DerpyChat here on DH, the system is currently offline. No I’m not removing it like I did back in March, it was reported (and checked) tonight that some major bugs have cropped up and caused the system to fail, basically many people logging in cannot get in or are getting directly kicked, and even when in the chat, using smilies are causing people to get booted. I’m not sure of the problem yet, but we will either upgrade or replace the system (either with a new one or a fresh install). Despite the comment of the bug reporter, the chat system is a good one, unless there are other complaints about it besides the current bugs. I’ve used the system on multiple sites, but I am open to a different system. The main keys are this is a linux server.
That’s all for now folks, got submission updates coming up here in a few.
Confused yet? Good. sg_06 has put together a contest system for those who aren’t artists and those who want more practice. To clarify, this is just for fun and the only profit is more pony.
This is really interesting, it uses image board style for submissions for the various themes the contest master has thought up. The main page has more details and you can poke around and see what’s up. It’s pretty simple once you see it for yourself, but really hard to explain somehow.
I’m sure you’ve seen my desktop screenshot from the Desktop Ponies 1.23 update post, well the only thing I’ve been missing for COMPLETE PONY DOMINATION on my desktop was a custom boot screen for windows 7/Vista
If you were missing that final piece as well, today is your lucky day. Capt-Nemo over on dA has what you seek!
This fine gentlecolt has made a Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, Vinyl Scratch and the ever so lovely Derpy Hooves loading screen animation. He also includes a link on each of those submissions to where you can learn how to set it up on your computer.
Ah, I love when these updates come out. This is an update from the MLP:FiM Flash Game (ignore the errors on the site, namely the missing logo and background, I’m the one running that and apparently things got overwritten with the DH site updates). The flash based 2d platformer you hear about from time to time. It shows what kind of epic progress they have made, from music to physics engine work. I won’t spoil all the fun, but check it out.
Later on, we’ll be having a marathon of updates news wise, those who have sent in submissions, I thank you, currently the submission page goes to me which isn’t the best idea due to my lack of being around all the time (damn you good weather), but I’ll be solving that issue. We also may have some more bronies posting here at DH, go team!
