Hello everypony!! Your Ponyville staff thought it might be fun to commission some OC's to represent the site, from our different resident Ponyville artists.

In this way, our team hopes to give back to the  community by supporting your art, while also having being able to do something cool for everypony!

Here is our first Ponyville OC, drawn by our dear friend, the talented Cookie Crumbs.

What should her name be?? Please offer a suggestion below! We will then host a poll, and pick together!! Isn't that fun?

Please also keep an eye out for her sister, who i think shall be drawn by our friend Hispanon!

How about Livelong June? Taken from a poem by Emily Dickinson, which I've seen quoted by Moony before:

I'm Nobody! Who are you?
Are you--nobody--too?
Then there's a pair of us!
Don't tell! they'd advertise--you know!

How dreary--to be--Somebody!
How public--like a frog--
To tell one's name--the livelong June--
To an admiring Bog!

You've got the wrong chan!

Livelong June is super cute, i like that too

i especially like the connotation. Ponyville is a home for self-feeling nobodies where you can be somebody who is loved.

Welcome everygem, to the new face of our beloved home! Now, I know this seems like a pretty serious change, but let's talk about it together!

With the growing popularity of Steven Universe, the staff and key members of our community have decided to change the course of the site a bit, and remake Ponyville into Steven Universe Ville!

It's an exciting time for all of us, I know :). We'll be keeping the /pony/ name and the ponyville URL for now, but you can expect significant changes as we roll out a wonderful new Steven Universe site for all of you gems out there. <3

Welcome, one and all, to Steven Universe Ville! Don't forget your Gemsonas!

Good evening, pony friends! Your staff has been very hard at work, designing a new experience for the community, here on Ponyville.


We understand there's a lot of controversy about intense discussions on the website. Some users would really like a place to have in-depth debates about various controversial subjects.

Others come to /pony/, however, to find some relief from the day to day difficulties that these subjects can bring up!

/townhall/ is a forced anonymous board that is designed for debates, dialectics, and discussions of a serious nature, with its own tone, and its own rules!

This means as well that we'll be expecting that sort of content to migrate over to townhall, though of course less-serious debates and discussions are always welcome on /pony/.

If you think your discussion or debate might end up in a shouting match, try bringing it over to /townhall/ for some nice, rational discussion.

Try it today, and let us know what you think ^^ We'll be adding it to the top bar later in the coming week.

What an excellent idea!

Only.... er...... there are names there so.... that kind of defeats the anonymity angle?  Which is a massive shame as anonymity breeds honesty.

I think it's mostly to keep track of who is talking in a particular thread.

If I am remembering right, I think the name changes when you enter a new thread.


They do. You have a thread-specific animal name.

To our magical Ponyville Masquerade Ball!

We've got a new board, open today.
If you enjoy it... perhaps it will stay.
But for how long? We cannot say.
Happy April the 1st Day.

Continuing discussion link! Thank you all for your input, and for discussing with me.

i am hoping that we have reached a good resolution, for all posters here.

Please keep your eyes out for the incoming advertising rule change and for the NSFW switch, which i hope will be the second piece of this puzzle, and allow for our users, all of our users, to feel safe and at home.

It's time to vote for the Ponyville Administrative Consistency and Transparency Act



We'll leave this up for a week. At the end of the week, we shall count the votes, and implement the proposals that have received majority approval.

If you are looking for more regulations, or changes, don't worry: as you can see, rules aren't set in stone. The rules will still be tuned, as time goes on, if the rules require tuning.

Thank you all for voting!

Hello everypony! I do hope you're having a wonderful Sunday!

I have a very special announcement for you all today. We're adding a new Administrator to the team, who we hope will be able to assist our community moving forward.

Our dear friend Starshine has joined our team, under the Administrator tag !!Coco Pommel. Starshine has been a community member since the very beginning of the pony fandom, and has served as a guiding voice in the community for just as long!

Please give her a warm welcome <3. Thank you all for your attention!

Is there only one mew?
Is it a female mew?


File: 1522655814421.jpg (133.63 KB, 1600x900, 16:9, pokemon_video_games_clouds….jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

That's a tricky question because there are indeed some legendary pokemon that there are only one of. That said, it's probably likely there is or was more than one Mew. In the first movie Mewtwo was created from a Mew fossil, but a living Mew also appears in the movie. A second, different Mew appears in another movie. But Mew is an exceedingly rare and elusive pokemon. So rare that pokemon scientists debate it's existence. Only a few people have ever seen one. It wasn't added to the National Pokedex for years as a result.

All legendary pokemon are officially  "genderless." But there are things that suggest Mew is female. In Mewtwo's original origin story from Red/Blue, Mew is said to have given birth to Mewtwo. This was later retconned to Mewtwo being cloned, which I mentioned earlier. Still, Mew contains the genetic code of all Pokemon, suggesting it's the common ancestor of all pokemon. This is why it can learn every pokemon move. So it's sometimes called the "mother" of all pokemon.

Hallo en vrolijk Pasen. As you may or may not have noticed, given our frequent usage by numerous Dutch posters, we have begun the process of switching domains and environments to one that is more fitting of our Dutch community.

Ponyville.us.nl, in the coming days, shall be remade into Ponyville.nl. EU Regulations require us to advise you that the internet should be used responsibly and for positive purposes only. Failure to adhere to these regulations may result in fines and penalties, including mandatory posting on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

The Bureau of Cultural Preservation has mandated that all posts should include Dutch words where possible. Likewise, the Council of Multi-Cultural Inclusion has mandated that all posts must contain at least some words in a language that is not Dutch, one of which must be in English.

Please note that as a soon-to-be registered .nl community, our website has complied with Dutch authorities and yielded sovereignty over to King Willem-Alexander. Note that this means no fun is allowed on days that are not Sunday, in accordance with the law.
We understand this is a substantial change for the community. As such, today shall be a one day grace period, in which the rules shall not be enforced. Please note though that upon the official domain name change, which shall occur Monday, April 2nd, the rules above shall be enforced as required by Dutch law and the regulations of the European Union.

We thank you for your time and patience, on behalf of the staff of Ponyville.nl. Do not forget to participate in Bicycle Tuesdays.

It is sure to be a Komkommertijd.

Thanks guys to fix that problem.

Next year if you are going to make a new april fools just remember this "with this type of colors will be easy for the users to read?" and make some test before releasing the theme officially.

Having fun is great but is important to think in the health and security of your users


THe Nederlands theme went off, I had to put it back manually.

Unless April Fools Day is over now, which I don't think it is.

Have you noticed anything at the top of the page? If you have adblock on, probably not! But if you turn it off, you will notice our brand new banners!

Our community artists have put together a whole gallery of beautiful banners for Ponyville. They can only be seen with adblock off though! Don't worry: our site doesn't run advertisements.

A special thanks to our wonderful chief developer !!Thorax, who has done an amazing, amazing job putting this together!!

Let us know what you think, my little ponies!

Hey everypony!

So I finished with the ponymote thing. If you would like to give them a whirl, you should check out the new Ponymote tab in the site options. All you have to do is enable them and select the ones you like the most to add them to your posting options. Just click on the little face and it'll put a little code thingy into your post that looks like :pony:. That will be translated into the ponymote once the post is submitted. And that is really all there is too it!

Also some people probably won't care much for these, and that is okay too. I put in an option into the ponymote tab to hide ponymotes globally. It will be as though they aren't even there.

For this first set, I wanted to have the main cast characters represented pretty well so I made 6 for each of them with a variety of expressions. But, there is plenty of room for more characters and more motes per character. I had made a call for some user submitted ponymotes a while ago but I hadn't really figured out what I wanted from them yet. But I think I do now, so if you want try and make some and submit, here are a few guidelines:

1. Make the backgrounds transparent.
2. Make them approximately 50px high which will be shrunk to 27px by the site (width will auto adjust, so make them proportional).
3. The width can vary, but don't make it too much wider or thinner than the height.
4. Make sure the details are good enough that you can see what the expression is at such a small size.

Special thanks to Agiri for making some a while ago, but I have to ask that you remake them to fit the above guidelines to keep a consistent style and quality. Thanks for understanding.

As always, especially with mobile devices, make sure to clear your cache if you aren't seeing the new options.:rara6:

To fit everypony in, perhaps add some Ville to the left and to the right and make it more panoramic to fit across the top.
