Hello everyone. The My Little Pony Trading Post was originally created in 1996 and we have been online since then. It is our 19th birthday year so we have moved to a shiny new forum design. You will find many of the features we had before are much easier to use. The site is optimised for mobile devices / tablets and smartphones so you will not need any added applications to see us.
There are a few tweaks that will be going on in the background. We welcome all feedback/suggestions/questions and hope that you enjoy our new format.

For starters, please click on your user name in the top right hand corner, this will take you to options. You can then personalise profiles, preferences, privacy etc. Please take a look at privacy settings, as they are important. If you are not a member, we welcome you to join us. :)

Impressive!! Have been poking around but alas the "real day" must begin. :p I have a couple questions/comments but will kind of just take notes for now, since it is all so brand shiny new. Sometimes the answers reveal themselves soon enough! Where would you all like us to ask questions specifically related to the changeover, in this thread or in the technical support area?

You're welcome to ask any questions in this thread :) Please keep in mind that this is new software to us too, and some things will take a little bit of tinkering before everything is just right.

I have a question: Where is our feedback located?
The old feedback system is no longer supported, so we are currently looking into a way to incorporate it into newer, supported software. If you need your feedback available before we solve this issue, I may be able to link it to you through an archived copy. ;)

As Jewel mentioned, all Feedback is still available. Rather than take more time to get this going, we decided to import everything else and work on the feedback in the background.

We've received a few questions about this, so I thought I would post the answer here in case it applies to any of you. ;)

All of the data from the old format of the TP was transferred here on Wednesday, August 6th. Any posts or comments made between the 6th and the 8th may have not been transferred to this new format. Your posts are not gone forever, however, and we can retrieve them for you at your request! :)

If you have a thread or comment that seems to have gone missing, please PM me with your thread location and/or title, and I can provide you the link to copy and paste that content here to the updated forum.

Also, please note that some formatting has changed as far as signatures go, and that you may find that you need to update your settings in order for it to display properly. http://www.mlptp.net/index.php?account/signature

As always, if you have any questions, PM me or a moderator at any time. We love to hear from you! :)

So far I am loving the new look! Thank you so much to everyone who contributed all your hard work to make this happen! My only concern so far was on the feedback as well, since you guys have already stated you're working on it I will wait and see how it goes :) Also, I LOVE the feature I noticed on the threads that distinguish if a particular thread is based solely on one generation. As a single generation collector I think this will be really helpful! Thanks again guys, looks amazing!

Trophys are awarded for doing things on the board, whether that be posting on the forums, liking other posts, or having someone like your post. Your User Title ( under your username) will change according to the Trophy points you accumulate.

I must say. I liked the new format on my computer but I just tried it out on my phone just now. And now I'm more than convinced that you did an amazing job. It's so easy to see on my phone without having to turn it sideways like other sites. I can even see what I'm typing right now which was hard with the old format. I love it so much cause I tend to be on the TP on my phone as much as my computer.

WoW! It looks great Jewel & Staff! Thanks for all your hard working keeping it alive! It looks great on my phone too! Now instead of FB I can tinker around on the TP when I have time to kill. :ponylove:

Has anyone figured out how to change your... rank? I think it's called. For those of us that have enough posts to edit out rank, where can we do that?

I think the rank is going to be determined by trophy points now? That's how I interpreted this post:

Wow, the new site is sleek and actually loads faster on my computer! I will have to take a look at it on my phone - from what I hear, it's a big hit. :) Thanks for all your hard work, mods!
