Ah Sunday, the official day off for DHN staffers (though its probably just me).
Good morning DHN, time for some comics. I am also going to use this space to post any site bulletins or what have yous I need, rather than giving it its own post. As said, I consider Sunday off for most of our staff (okay, well myself), so its usually deadly slow around here (though I think we have some articles in the works for today).
This past month we have had a jump in traffic, nothing huge but definitely an increase of being noticed. I wanted to take a moment to just point out that we do have some majorly dusty areas on the site, namely the Art, Media and Game section. Most of it has been on the shelf since late Spring 2011, but we are working to update or change these sections out. Our Art Gallery I’m not exactly sure what we are doing, right now it kind of stands as a window into the past (stopped being updated at the end of May 2011), so for now I leave it so newer fans can see the art of the early days, and us old folks can get all nostalgia on. Our media section we will be changing and upgrading, as well as the gaming section.
I’m also sure most have noticed our episode guide, which use to contain links to all the episodes. We currently have no direct links, namely due to the issues the internet is having with data sharing services. Obviously everyone knows about the head shot Megaupload got from the FBI, and then every other data share site out there has done something in reaction. Some have stopped any new uploads, many have done raids and purged themselves of all possible copyright threats, one even banned all US sourced ip addresses. For now, we do it as we did it a year ago. Look to the gdoc guides, its not hard to find what you want, just not as simple as it was for the start of Season 2.
Anyways, enough of that, time for comics. I’m going to start throwing a random “classic” into these posts, such as my still favorite Derpy comic, made about a year ago. Comes from our own dusty artwork gallery, and unfortunately back in those days there was no “source” field on ponibooru (and or it just wasn’t being used). Any old timers who might know who made them (or the true source), leave a comment.
Well its midnight on the West Coast, so its officially Sunday Morning, and with that comes Sunday Morning Comics, Edition 02.
What can be said about yesterday’s episode? All I can say is I feel sorry for Applejack. It was an AJ episode, and she basically got mauled by 30 seconds of Derpy speaking, though it was an atomic bomb in the community.
As always there are a hundred sides, people who hated it, people who loved it, people who shrugged, people who think its making fun of disabled people. What it is, is a tip of the hat from Studio B for being who we are, just like it was a tip of the hat last year during Feeling Pinkie Keen and Studio B going back through the last half of the season and giving Derpy, derp eyes.
She’s clumsy, she runs into things cause I’m sure she has screwed up vision, and her voice isn’t exactly perfect. It may improve if she ever speaks again. Personally the voice reminded me of Rudolph from the old claymation special, where they cover his nose so he could go play with the other reindeers. She’s a little more defined now, possibly not even a mother, but still its about your own head cannon. Take what the show gives you, or go your own way.
In other semi-related news I did hear there’s been some pissing contests going on, namely /co/
It was also a crazy day here of course, this site experience about twice the traffic we get on episode day, four times a typical day. If any of you new people who didn’t know about us, our purpose is simple. We concentrate on the news of the show and the big things in the fandom, while showcasing fan creations in between. In short we run slower than EqD since we are more news centered and provide an alternative new source, and been doing so for 13 months. Enjoy your stay.
That’s all for now folks, have some comics. (Clicking on their name will now bring you to their DA post, clicking on the image will open it up here on DHN).
Welcome to DH’s Sunday Morning Comics, our weird attempt at having a “daily article” on a certain subject or topic. For Sunday, we’re going with the classic of morning comics (since we’re already in practice for Saturday Morning Cartoons). You will see some other articles like this during the week, we’ll have a music post, image gallery, etc. Most are is being pulled from my own DeviantArt account, I’m in many groups but feel free to poke me on dA (DerpyHoovesCentral) so I can add you to my watch list. I will make rounds to the booru sites and such.
We’re also trying the wordpress gallery, though this week its slightly derp’d. My intention is to have the images linked back to their source (much like our post image above goes back to dA), but apparently the gallery wants to keep the files local. Sorry guys, but the names under each comic can be found on dA.
