There seems to be something about Rarity that draws interest into her backstory... and for some reason, it's usually sad. Today's Vault entry is another character study of Ponyville's resident white unicorn, exploring her relationship with her father.

Site Post » Hello from California · 6:42am Apr 14th, 2012

So that wee bit of downtime for the last....2 hours or so was us moving servers....again! We're now on an even shinier box which should blitz through Fimfiction like a hot knife through butter.

But we've also fundamentally changed a vast amount of the site's inner workings. Consequently, there are going to be bugs, I can assure you there will be ones we didn't find.

So please let us know what's up below, and we can work on fixing it.

Perhaps one of the best-known fanfiction sagas in the fandom, today's Vault entry examines the psyches of the main characters and some fan-favorite characters... and the weaknesses that can be found therein.

Site Post » Character Changes in Action · 4:32pm Apr 11th, 2012

Judging by the response in the previous post, the vast majority of people were extremely positive about the character changes we suggested. Consequently, I've gone ahead and implemented them on the site. Right now there are 2 group tags, main 6 and CMC. For existing stories we've changed everything that had all main 6 characters selected to use the main 6 tag, and everything that had all the CMC selected to use the CMC tag.

Site Post » UPCOMING CHANGE: Severely limiting the number of character tags · 8:53pm Apr 10th, 2012

So for a long time now we've had a big problem on the site with people using our Character Tag system incorrectly. You're supposed to use it to tag the MAIN characters in your story; that it to say, the ones that will play a large role. In most good stories, this number realistically shouldn't climb above five, maybe ten at the most (for very long stories with ensemble casts). For a while we've just let you tag a very large number of characters (I think it's like 20 or 30 or something

Site Post » Browse page changes and nav bar changes · 3:39am Apr 10th, 2012

Hey guys,

Just a couple of really minor changes I wanted to mention today.

Top bar
We've cleaned up the top bar just a little bit. The search bar actually has a button now (Should be handy for you mobile lot) and we've removed the "My Page" button because it was redundant with the entry in the green bar. We also removed the archive button, you'll see why in just a sec...

Site Post » Fancy new user page editor · 11:16am Apr 8th, 2012

Yesterday I took the time to move all of the user page editing stuff over to the user pages themselves. If you head over to your page and click the "edit user page" button at the top left you'll open up a fancy little editor to do stuff in. I'll briefly explain how it works below.

Adding Modules
Adding modules is done by clicking any of the buttons at the top, in the editing toolbar. The new module will be added at the bottom left by default.
