Helping Brony Artists Grow
As we approach the end of this year's NATG (still found at Equestria Daily! Hello to anyone new who found us through the event!) it seems we've all kept ourselves busy! They say idle hooves are Discord's playthings so please take a look at what everypony's busy schedules have brought about in our Wrap-Up Blog! Excellent! Thanks!

After such a busy week, I think everypony deserves a pat on the back, a moment's rest, and maybe a nap. But don't rest too long, we still have work to do! Of course, they say all work and no play makes for a dull pony, no? So for this week's theme:

A Plush Pony / Ponies with Toys

Who doesn't love a soft, cuddly plush of their favorite pony? No one, that's who! Even Princess Twilight Sparkle once cuddled close with a plushie Smarty Pants doll. So if you could give a plush to any pony, who would the plush be of? And who would you give it to?

Plushies aren't the only toys in Equestria though. There's Emergency balls for ball emergencies, Loop-de-Hoops, blocks, rubber chickens, and more! And every foal has their wish-list ready for Hearth's Warming Eve. Toys aren't just for foals either. I'm sure plenty of full grown stallions and mares have a favorite toy, right?

But don't let yourself get so carried away with your new toys that you forget to submit to our external submitter! The username is artist and the password is twilight! And then, have fun, everypony!

I'm afraid that we will not be, no. DeviantART actually has a limit on how many folders a single group can have, and we've hit that limit numerous times already. (This is why many of our folders are now labeled "Weeks 25-30".) The group didn't make folders for the NATG 3 either, which I do believe was for the same reason (I wasn't yet an admin at that point).

That's really too bad, I dunno any other way to actually get out art out there and no one really looks at the multitudes that get submitted to EqD itself, but this group had a smaller commuity that helped the art we did for the ATG spread.  Regardless I understand the reasonings, I... guess?   Except not really since one (or potentially now 2 due to what Phoe's said about breaking it up into two half-months per year) new folder per YEAR shouldn't be an issue among the 52 others for the group's themes, but /shrug.

I'm very sorry for not telling you that I was going to be inactive for more than a year. Long story short, I went into hiding at DrawQuest and school activities were making me busy. I hope I can participate the weekly prompts again after NATG IV! :)

That's certainly not a problem. Membership in the group doesn't expire due to inactivity or anything, after all. :iconpinkiewinkplz:

And we'll be looking forward to seeing whatever you may create for the group in the future.

There's a thought! The mod who made the last anniversary picture and took all the submissions for the most recent one is no longer with us, but I shall get in touch to see if this is a thing that can happen ^_^

So what happened to all the content submitted in weeks before 148 as the don't appear to be in the "Previous Weeks" folder, were the removed to make room or to decease the number of folders, or was it a accident?

On a other note whats the rules about submitting to weeks gone past?

One last thing to the admins, your list of previous themes is not up to date     
www.deviantart.com/users/outgo…
also just a idea could you maybe have the week numbers next to the themes in the list.


O and I hope everyones having a great day. :wave:

If you open up the Previous Weeks folder, you'll see a list of folders for the past week along the left side of the screen.  Do note that many of the early weeks are in condensed folders, each containing five weeks worth of submissions instead of one.  The reason for that is because deviantART actually has a limit on how many folders a single group can create, and we hit that limit some time ago.

Submissions to past themes are perfectly acceptable, and merely need to follow the same rules that the current theme submissions would follow.

And yeah, the previous themes list is badly in need of updating.

And you have a great day as well!  :iconhappytsplz:

Hey everypony! I am interested in attending BronyCon again this year at the Baltimore Convention Center and thanks to a chaotic summer I had little time to plan. I am looking around for anyone in need of another hotel room-mate for the event. I live pretty close to the center but not close enough to simply walk, so I would like to secure lodging if possible for convenience sake. If anyone needs another body to fill a hotel room please reply. I'd love to hang out with everyone at the con again this year.

Ohhhhh, so the theme changes at midnight Sunday night EST now instead of 3AM EST like it was on the west coast before?  So I just stayed up extra late finishing my piece this week for nothing~  Oh well~

It said to upload anyway and ask the admins nicely, so there ya go... S'not a big deal, though, I'm just now getting back into doing these on time the last few weeks for the first time in ages, and I just did a crappy quick pic this week at the very end like a silly filly..  But it's up to you~

The theme deadlines for this group have always been midnight EST, or at least they have been for as long as I've been around.  I suspect you've gotten this confused with the deadlines for Equestria Daily's NATG events, which did have a midnight PST deadline, and were also the inspiration for this group in the first place.

Nonetheless, the deadlines are really just for the Wrap-Up Blog that gets linked to in each journal entry.  New creations can always be submitted to our gallery, no matter how old the theme in question may be.

Also, sorry about this reply being a bit late, but I just returned from BronyCon.

Ermagawd... I just sent my join request and realized that the last deviation I've uploaded kinda classifies for the current theme :3
