YAKS SMASH!
YAKS SMASH JOURNAL POST!
YAKS SMASH SELF-INDULGENT JOURNAL WRITER!
Yaks no smash Weekly Wrap Up Blog.
Yaks appreciate artists hard work.
Done? Good. Now YAKS SMASH AGAIN!

Yaks. They're harder to get a handle of than gaggle of oiled up porcupines. They sure do love their smashing, but I think they've done enough damage for one week. We really need to find a way to fund the repairs of this place. Maybe a charity fundraiser, or a dance video contest? Well, the means aren't really the important part. What we need to get everything around here back up to ship-shape is:

A Pony Earning Money / Taking a Gamble

Bits might not be able to buy you happiness, but they sure help. The coin of the realm is something everypony needs. Earning it from jobs, from allowance, or chores, bits can be hard to come by. Of course, the true power in earning money is, of course, knowing what to do with it afterwards. Earning, saving, spending, and donating are the cornerstones of financial literacy! Learn those skills, and use them well!

On the other hoof is the option to just gamble everything on winning big. You can take your earnings and head out to Las Pegasus and gamble it all away amidst the all-you-can-eat buffets and fancy shows. Maybe it's reckless, maybe it's foolish, but it can be just for fun too, so long as you don't overdo it. Everything in moderation. Then again, if it's not a monetary gamble, then it might be a lot more dangerous... Some ponies put their lives on the line for one big gamble, to win everything or die trying. Stunt maneuvers or risky bets, a gamble is just a slim chance, a wing and a prayer that everything will turn out alright. You willing to take the risk?

Punch the clock, turn in your pay sheet, and submit your art to our Deviant Art Gallery, as well as submitting it to our external submitter. The username is artist and the password is twilight. Ah, I live for pay day.

Have you ever had a background (not background pony, but one of the settings of the show) challenge?

Do you allow humanization in this group?

:iconinvidlord:
Invidlord Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
If it encourages you to draw, sure! We obviously want to stay SFW and such, but if humanized versions of ponies that inspire you to get out your pen/pencils/digital editor and create, we are all for it!

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:
