Website Updates

Friday, June 24, 2016

     The page for UK My Little Pony Comics is up now! We've got cover pictures for more than seventy different comics so far, and full-comic scans (downloadable in PDF format) for nearly forty of them. If you've got comics we don't have pictures of yet, we're always looking to add more!

Tuesday, November 24, 2015

     Lately, we've been slowly adding Javascript lightboxes to various parts of the site, so the images will show up in a hovering box when you click on them (instead of taking you to a new page or opening a new tab). Try it out!

Tuesday, October 6, 2015

     Today marks Ponyland Press's 10th anniversary! We really can't believe it's been ten years already. As of this year, you can now follow us on Facebook, Pinterest, and Tumblr!

Saturday, June 13, 2015

     It's been a while since our last update, but we've got new photos posted in the Town section of the site to make up for it! Come and pay a visit to The Ponyland Temple. Enjoy!

Sunday, February 9, 2014

     The Porcelain Figurines page is now up! We've also added a handful of pictures of Petite Ponies, updated a few other photos, and added a few more mint-in-package photos.

Sunday, February 2, 2014

     Apologies for the long hiatus! Here's an update: I've just added over 40 books to the Storybooks page, and created a page for MLP Bath & Beauty Products. I'll try to get some more updates done soon!

Sunday, June 30, 2013

     Not a real update -- just a quick note to say, first of all, that we're still here (we've just been very busy this past year!), and that we hope to resume updating sometime in the fall. Right now, we're in the process of moving out of state, so we may not be able to get back to emails right away.

Monday, May 21, 2012

     Uploaded a few more donated photos to the UK section. Thanks for sending them, everyone!

Saturday, May 19, 2012

     Lots of invisible updates to make the site work better. Also, the Symbol Guide is back up now, although some of the links are not yet working, as we're in the process of retaking the photos.

Wednesday, May 16, 2012

     The Lil' Litters (My Little Kitty, Bunny, and Puppy) pages are up now! Several of them even have MIP photos.

Monday, May 14, 2012

     Made a tentative start on the German Ponies pages. We still need quite a few photos to get this section ready, I'm afraid. Contributions welcome!

Monday, February 13, 2012

     Re-uploaded a few new photos with better quality. Added a page for MLP coin banks.

Sunday, February 12, 2012

     Info is finally up for the Pony Friends section of the Pose Guide. More usefully, US, Special Offer, UK, and Plush variations are all linked to each other now. Pose information is also linked from the US page, along with info about the years Dream Beauties, Petites, and Soft Sleepy Newborns were printed.

Saturday, February 11, 2012

     Hover links are up for all US ponies, though some of them don't' work yet, as we still need to take some more photos. Also, by popular request: Ponyland Press FAQ, and a supplementary page on acronyms and collectors' jargon.

Saturday, December 31, 2011

     Made hover links to show the symbols of the first few years of US ponies on mouseover (like this!). It's taking a while, but it'll be awesome when it's done. Happy New Year from Ponyland Press!

Thursday, December 29, 2011

     Added about 150 upgraded photos to the US section.

Wednesday, December 28, 2011

     Finished putting the new menu on all the MIP pages. Added a separate page for Collector Ponies. Linked all of the US ponies' pages to the appropriate Special Offer or UK variants. Fixed some bugs.

Sunday, November 13, 2011

     Some minor improvements to the Town section -- better navigation buttons and larger thumbnails. More real updates soon...

Wednesday, August 31, 2011

     Back from Russia! And I've finally installed a new menu which is more compatible with Firefox and Chrome. It's slightly less attractive in IE than the old menu, but considering that the old menu only worked in IE, I think overall it's an improvement.

Thursday, June 16, 2011

     Not really an update -- just a note to say that the webmaster (Grayswandir) will be in Russia for the next two months, so email replies may be a bit slow, and there probably won't be any site updates. Regular service will resume in August. ;)

Monday, May 2, 2011

     Very minor updates: added a handful of donated photos to the UK and Petite sections, and made some corrections to US pages. Also uploaded some new photos for the Clocks and Watches page. Thank you, to those who have sent us photos, suggestions, or corrections!

Sunday, May 1, 2011

     Put up two new pony shops in the town section: Gingerbread Bakery and Sports Time, Mike's sports shop. Check them out! :)

Saturday, November 20, 2010

     Added another 100 or so pictures to the site, mostly MIP/card photos and some photo upgrades on the US and UK pages.

Sunday, November 14, 2010

     Added 80 or so new MIP and back card photos around the site, mostly US, Special Offer, and German.

Saturday, November 13, 2010

     Expanded the Petite Ponies section of the site from five sets to eighteen -- basically everything except the Bright Sight ponies.

Wednesday, October 20, 2010

     Linked all of the brushes, picks, and combs mentioned on the US and Special Offer pages to the appropriate part of the brushes, combs, and picks page. Still gathering information about the UK ponies' brushes, to say nothing of plushies, etc...

Monday, October 18, 2010

     In the process of adding more foreign MIP/backcard pictures around the site. You can see an example here. We're hoping to put up a lot more MIP pictures as we get them. :)

Sunday, October 17, 2010:

     Added about 70 new MIP/backcard pictures around the site, in the US, UK, and Special Offer sections. Also, have decided to move the updates page here, so that I'll remember to use it and actually post when we update! The old updates page, which was a hassle to work with, has been closed down. So check here for site updates from now on!

Saturday, October 16, 2010:

     Added some more photos to the Pony Wear section. Thanks for sending your pictures, Sue Cooper!

Monday, August 30, 2010:

     The UK Ponies section is now up!

Wednesday, August 18, 2010:

     The Pony Wear section is now up!

Monday, August 2, 2010:

     New town photos! Check out Tootie Tails & Salty's wedding photos! My sister and I got both of these ponies when we were little kids, back in the 80's, and they were the first pony couple we ever played out a wedding for. Tootie Tails' original dress (which I made when I was 8) looked quite a lot like the dress Baby Bloodflower made for this set, pink with little seashells glued on -- but of course, Baby Bloodflower's version is much nicer! ;) The rest of the wedding is pretty much the way we played it out as kids, too. Hope you enjoy!

Friday, July 23, 2010:

     At long last, we've put up a page about the Ponyland shop from which our website takes its name: The Ponyland Press! :) This was one of the first pony businesses my sister and I invented when we were kids. We used to take Cuddles and Wave Runner on exciting adventures around the living room to gather news, and then we'd cut out little papers for Balloons to sell, and Baby P&B would deliver them to the other ponies. Great fun. :)

Saturday, June 5, 2010:

     More town photos. This time we introduce you to Cocoa, the Mystic. She's Ponyland's local psychic and tarot-reader, although she isn't about to quit her day job (at the arcades). A little early for Halloween, but Cocoa likes to keep things spooky year-round. :)

Saturday, May 8, 2010

     The Dream Beauties page is now up!

Saturday, January 2, 2010

     Welcome to 2010! Have some more pony photos. ;)

     We decided it was time to get some of our boy ponies more involved, so we spent New Year's Eve taking pictures of one of our favorite pony businesses: Appleseed Construction Company. Daddy Tree (that is, Daddy Apple Delight) is one of our oldest ponies, and has always been in charge of construction around town. He started the company when we found his brother, Leafy (a double), at a thrift store. And the staff just keeps growing. Hope you like the set!

Saturday, November 14, 2009

     Added a whole bunch of coloring books. Some storybooks, too.

Saturday, November 7, 2009

     Added a ton of puzzles to the Merchandise section. Lots more merchandise to put up, when I can get around to it...

Monday, August 10, 2009

     The Mommy/Mummy Charms section is now up!

Saturday, March 26, 2009

     No major update, but we've been slowly retaking all the photos of our own collection for the site, now that we've got better lighting. (Yay, umbrellas!) It's taking some time to do all their hair (Baby Bloodflower is doing most of that work), but we're getting there...

Saturday, March 14, 2009

     The winners of the Photo Raffle have been announced! Congratulations to those who won, and a huge thanks to everyone who participated! We got way, way more photos than we were expecting. Now I just have to find time to crop and upload them all. You guys are amazing!

Saturday, February 14, 2009

     We've got our first contest underway!

     For the next month, Ponyland Press will be holding a free raffle, where contributing photos to the website gives you the chance to win a free My Little Pony. For details, see the Ponyland Press Photo Raffle page. (You can find our gigantic list of the photos we need on this page.)

     For convenience of updating, we're be keeping the list of entrants in a LiveJournal post. Here are the current submissions.

    Good luck!

     And, just for fun: the Ponyland Elementary School Yearbook. XD

Friday, January 9, 2009

     More town photos! Check out Bubbles' Antique Shop. This is one of our newer pony businesses, but all the oldschool ponies seem to like it. :)

Saturday, November 22, 2008

     The Special Offer section is finally up! We've also added about 60 new pictures to the US section. A million thanks to everyone who's sent us pictures of their ponies for the site!

Wednesday, July 30, 2008

     The Pamphlets and Brochures section is now up!

Wednesday, May 28, 2008

     New photos in the town section: Twirler's Salon is now up. :) I got Twirler for Christmas when I was about eight, and I happened to get a miniature hair salon set at the same time, so naturally Twirler became the town barber. Most of the other ponies in the set have been working with her since my sister and I were kids. Hope you enjoy the photos!

Saturday, June 2, 2007

     Today we bring you Bouncy's Summer Catalogue! When my sister and I first set up a complete pony town in our room, it was a town of baby ponies only, and Baby Bouncy owned the clothing store. A year later we set up a proper adult town, but Baby Bouncy wouldn't give up her store, so she still manages Bouncy's Clothes. Check out the catalogue to see some of the fashions she's promoting this summer. :)

Thursday, September 28, 2006

     The page on brushes, combs, and picks is now up!

Friday, September 22, 2006

     Meet Surprise and Glider! My sister and I found these two ponies at a Swap Meet when we were kids, and they've stuck together ever since. :)

Thursday, June 8, 2006

     Meet the Bowtie family!

Saturday, April 8, 2006

     The symbol guide is up now.

     The Plush Ponies page is up now!

Thursday, January 5, 2006

     The Petite Ponies section of the site is up now, though we still need quite a lot more photos. At least it's a start! :)

Saturday, December 2, 2005

     It's Christmas at Ponyland Press! You can see the town's Christmas photos here. :D

Thursday, October 6, 2005

     Ponyland Press is officially online today! We have a lot of work still to do, but the US section is up and running, and there's much more to come!

     To celebrate, we bring you our first set of town photos. See how the ponies are celebrating Halloween!

     Keep checking back for more updates. Have a great holiday!
