Hi all! :)

2019 has brought about a number of changes here at the MLPTP. I am now the site's owner, and responsible for making a number of very necessary changes and updates to what had become a very, very outdated site.

With the software having been a good decade old, it took several IT specialists (and myself) several days to ensure that all of our data remained intact while we updated to a brand new fully-supported and fully-featured forum. Here's where we stand on our journey toward a full renovation:


Current Updates:

:flutter2: The forum software has been successfully updated to the newest version available

:flutter2: Chatbox has been restored! You can find it on the main page on the right hand side.

:flutter2: "Terms and rules" link at the bottom of every page now takes users directly to the forum thread instead of a separate (outdated) page.

:flutter2: Donation box has been added to the main page. It offers members the additional option to "subscribe" and make a recurring donation, and very soon members will get trophies and a banner for donating!

:flutter2: Emoticons have been pruned, reorganized entirely, and a few new pony ones added.

:flutter2: Moderator banner has been made pink. A new banner for MLPTP Supporters has been made and is in gold.

:flutter2: The Feedback feature has been restored and updated.


:flutter2: A new trophy system has been implemented, allowing you to collect your own trophies for various accomplishments! They will be displayed under your username and on your profile page.


Upcoming Updates:


:cc: MORE New MLP smileys and emoticons are on the way!

:cc: Plans are in the works for easy social media integration.

:cc: The Gallery feature will be restored and updated.

:cc: Even more to come, stay tuned! ;)


:QB:Here's the big question: What do YOU want to see added to the MLPTP? :fizzy:

Thanks! :D Please pardon the dust and give us a bit of time to get features like the chat back up and running. The old software was VERY old and it's going to take some work!

Well, this is certainly different.
I like it. Will take some time to get used to the new layout but it’s certainly fresh. Maybe this will be better for me as I only use my phone to chat here. Lol
I don’t computer much these days unless I’m at work. :p

Due to the software being a good decade old and obsolete, we're very fortunate that we could save all of our content while upgrading to a fully supported modern forum model. I have kept as much the same as I've been able to, and it's going to continue to take weeks of work until we're completely updated and all features added. :)
