Ungulata sent this through the not-so-hotline. He put it best, so i’ll just quote it:
“You perhaps have seen the thirty day MLP question meme floating about on Tumblr. Well, I took that meme, gutted it, mutated it and transformed it into a 100 day MLP:FIM prompt meme which I am releasing, one question at a time, on the Equestriamlp community on Livejournal ( http://equestriamlp.livejournal.com/ ). We’re two weeks in, so take a look and you can see what kind of questions I’m asking. It’s a meme, it’s supposed to be easy. The idea is to help pass the time until Season Two. 100 questions is the goal, but since I already have 96 lined up and nearly three months to make more, I’ll probably end up with a few dozen bonus questions. Feel free to post and answer the questions anywhere you please.”
They're already 16 days in! See all the questions HERE
There are also some cool icons on the main page, quite a lot of them too.
Someone over on ponychan has gotten exclusive leaked screenshots of the new opening for Season 2! Delicious Luna and Derpy! Catch the thread over HERE.
In other news, the Daniel Ingram interview from 91.8 The Fan will be airing TODAY at 2pm PST, or 4pm CST. I will be listening to either the live broadcast or a recording to get you the good bits and have a writeup for you tonight, Celestia Willing.
Also have some Applejack for your consideration.
I love these videos.
In other news I’d like to personally welcome Plaster to the DH team, he has been the one updating this place like crazy, and I love it. I was afraid between my seasonal work, which keeps me busy 12 hours a day and the lack of me being out in the pony community that this site might die in the off-season. Plaster has always been a fan, and I forget if he asked or if I asked, but either way, we have teamed up.
And again I would also like to welcome Jaller94 to the team (now that we have an actual team), who is doing the webpage work, making things run smoother. As said this site was built from a mass amount of tables originally, and he has converted it all to php. Our media section is currently being worked on, afterwards we’ll be dropping a ton of “new” videos that have yet to be recorded into our libraries. I also got about two weeks worth of art to upload into the galleries.
While reading up on the MLP Physics Impossibilities Video on BoingBoing, in the comments someone had linked this in response to BB not knowing we existed. It may not be earth-shattering news, but knowing that the fandom has created enough noise that the FANDOM gets it’s own article on Wikipedia is an interesting feat. Check that out in this link.
<@NH4NO3> 700MB per episode is ridiculous.
My sentiments exactly. Send your thanks to the guy above (you can catch him on /co/ or #cloudsdale on the Rizon irc network.) for the itunes rips, it comes in individual megauploads or a torrent batch file. Get those here. There is a little guide in a thread on ponychan to speed things up and makes seeding nicer/quicker for everyone else.
-A kind thank you to hoppip for bringing this to my attention
One of my friends on facebook this morning had this posted to their wall. Yes, someone has given the Equestria Girls song from a couple posts back the Nyan-Cat treatment. How long can you derp?
Yay! 200k pageviews! Considering that this site has been operational since December, it’s about time! It’s a party!
Second, I’m sure you’ve noticed the increased amount of news being posted on here recently, with a new name attatched at the bottom. Some of you may know me, I go by plaster. I asked Derpysquad if I could help out when he’s busy making a living and he happily obliged. I’ll be going around and collecting whatever news I can from the source. Having been in the fanbase since October of 2010, I’ve gained quite the collection of connections from all over the fandom. If you have any news you want posted quickly, please contact me at email@example.com. (The official report news button is buggy and is being looked into by the lovely Muffin Overlords.)
My goals for this site is to deliver any news I can about official Hasbro released news and videos from Hubworld as quickly as possible as well as any cool fan projects I can get my hands on.
In light of the newfound activity and to anyone just wondering; I’ve been on great terms with the guys at EqD and I don’t intend to try to “overtake them” or “be better than them” in any way. Derpysquad put it best: “I like to think of it as we are the Colbert Report to their Daily Show.” I do feel that since we originally opted out on hosting fanfiction posts we can focus on the news you care for most better than anything and get the news you want quicker without stepping on anyone’s toes.
On that note, we may not be the first place you go to for your pony news. But hey, we still love you.
Don’t forget about us!
(oh god Derpysquad don’t fire me for this)
