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site's owner, and responsible for making a number of very necessary changes and updates to what had become a very, very outdated site.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"Terms and rules" link at the bottom of every page now takes users directly to the forum thread instead of a separate (outdated) page.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. Find it by going to your profile!

: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:

I'm very excited about the trophies and emoticons!! I love collecting things, even small badges and such. :cc:
I'd love to see more themes and layouts-maybe banner contests to get activity up again?

Thanks jewel !! Yes I would like my old post count restored from when it went from .com to .net. Lol ok that’s asking a lot. I like fun ways to get the post count up, like different names and stuff.

A simpler way to share pictures maybe?

Got your post count for you, I don't think I can change the registration date though. Can you elaborate about an easier way to share pictures, just so I'm sure I understand?

Oh yes, the photos hosting is a bit complicated. Maybe there’s an easier why and I’m just not aware?

The Gallery feature is currently not implemented--I've had to hire a private developer to write a new program to incorporate all of our old data because the software was too old to even update to anything new, so there is currently no gallery feature until this can be resolved. But we are working hard on it ;)

As for adding photos to your posts, it's actually simpler than before:

Just testing a pic! Much more simple - but we don't have to have outside hosting like photo bucket?
Not yet, the photo software was a decade old and there isn't a version of what we had that's compatible with the updated forum software. So I've had to hire a software developer to import all of our old photos/etc into brand new software, and it's going to take several more weeks before he has that finished. ;)

Whew...it's been a while.
Congratulations, MustBeJewel! I haven't been around in forever, but I still check my emails for updates, and still love and support the MLPTP. Thank you so much for taking on the responsibility of updating it and keeping the community alive!
