Dance GameThank you all for playing the Doki Doki Dance beta! It's so fun reading your responses and scores.Dance Game in Personal More Like This
These are the plans for the near future.
1. I'll be tweaking the scoring system. You're all much better at playing this game than me!
2. Posting designs and sketches of the different girls as I draw them. They will be in my scraps folder and might not have any heart content as of yet.
3. Working on adding some more features like heart rate, double arrow events, and more dynamic dancing and so on.
4. Finding royalty free music! I'll be sticking to dance, trance, electronic types. Maybe some slower hip hop type tunes, if I can find. I might just make some short tracks on my own.
5. I do want to sell this game, but there will be demos for free and videos of gameplay.
Anyway, that's all I can type for now!

CALLING FOR FLASH EXPERTS / ACTIONSCRIPT EXPERTS
CALLING FOR YOUNG FEMALES WILLING TO MAKE HIGH QUALITY HEARTBEAT RECORDINGS
Time is going by very very fast for me with my new salaried job. The long hours and routine make the weeks feel like a day. So I've been researching Flash for the HB game for just a few hours per month really.
I've lowered my expectations to a choose-your-own-adventure type game. I found a tutorial about this. I did it at work and got a skeleton of code to work, so I just need to fill in all the blanks with the story I create, the numerous pictures of the characters/backgrounds, and all the branches off from that.
As I'm typing this, I'm coming up with even more ideas to make it more exciting than just picking what to say to the girls to let them listen to their heartbeats, but I don't know if I could really implement it into the programming.
If any of the fans of my page have a mind for programming, or if you're experienced with
Heart Sniper: Do you like?I have a request for a new project. I kind of like this idea, and I've been wanting to animate something like this before.Heart Sniper: Do you like? in Personal More Like This
It's basically a "heart sniper". You can aim at a pretty girl's heart, she gets scared, her heart beats faster, and you can shoot (if you'd like). There's a lot of peripheral animation I'd want to add too, like her reactions and attempts to escape, but that's a large amount of animation.
There would be a red dot as well as a xray scope, like in Eraser.
Also, the intro to Cutie Honey has an adorable execution of this idea, I uploaded on my youtube. I especially like how she puts her back to the wall and waits for the shot:
I get a lot of requests for cartoon-heart type stuff, and hearts beating faster, etc. But this is the first heart shooting request I've gotten, and I'd like to diversify my work a bit more (all I have is Miki f

Does anyone really HATE this sort of thing?
Maybe people who are in denial. I "hated" it before I admitted to myself that I liked this sort of thing. Now I draw it and tell people about it pretty easily.
If you don't talk about it like it's a weird thing, people won't think it's a weird thing.
I'll try to draw more if I can, but it might take a while. Now that I'm home for the summer I have even less alone time than before.
Ugh... anyone listened to any heartbeats lately? It's been like, 8 months for me. Maybe I should spend more time trying to get a listen than drawing.
Although I really don't know which I enjoy more these days...
Requests?I see some other people doing requests and it looks fun. Should be easy to do some stuff to please people while you're waiting for this game.Requests? in Personal More Like This
Stuff I would not want to draw:

-Stuff closely related to the heart interest
-Cartoonish heart popping out stuff
-Realistic hearts, see thru chests, things like that.
-Heart ripping or some gore, but not in a cruel way.

Great effort, but honestly, her eyes and face really freak me out. And I consider the eyes to be very important in this fetish, so I can't enjoy this at all.
So I'll make my own version or maybe something a little different... I dunno.
I'm also wondering, how many of you would pay to see high quality, interactive heartbeat fetish pictures and games? (Like less than 5 bucks) Or are you just going to steal it? Be honest.
Maybe I should just post it on a website where I can make ad revenue?
I really need to make at least a little bit of money from this if I'm going to keep doing it and sharing it.

The chaptered comic strip, has been collected into a 100-page graphic novel – and to the still-uninitiated:
It is not quite like anything you’ve probably ever seen before. The story follows “Zee Captain” and his sidekicks as they amble through a post-apocalyptic landscape. And while that hardly seems new and different, it’s the unusually superlative graphic quality of the comic cells and the Monty Pythonesque dialogues and leaps of logic that can become quite mesmerizing. Zee Captain, his face hidden by a gas mask that gives him a Darth Vaderish look, wears what looks like a Soviet Red Army uniform from WWII, and the strip does have nourish WWII feel.

Another was what would be the worst torture to endure. If there is one international touchstone that best captures youthful fears and wonders in speculation of what lies beyond the veil of death and awaits as possible punishment for our sins, it must be - to the few who have actually read it to the millions who "know" it – "Dante's Inferno."

The absolute best thing you can do to get into animation as a career is to go to art school. Not only will you learn how to draw and how to SEE, you will meet people, students and teachers alike, who will give you new perspectives and will likely be the sources of your future jobs. (My first job came from one of my teachers.)
There are several schools that have fantastic animation programs that cover all facets of the atr form. Schools like the one I attended, CALIFORNIA INSTITUTE OF THE ARTS, will teach you animation (2D and 3D,) character design, storyboarding, bac

Here's an interview I did for Equestria Daily about Season 1. If you've ever been interested in the behind-the-scenes structure of an animated show, you'll enjoy this long and thorough interview.
More development sketches coming soon. Be sure to check out the premiere of Season 2 tomorrow morning on the Hub! If people seem to like it, I'll post some of my first development sketches of the new villian.
A lot of folks asking what colors this pony sketch would be------ I'm rather pale skinned, but peachy flesh colored ponies look weird to me, so white body and slightly purplish, dark red hair. If you want, color away!

Dear Princess Celestia,
What an amazing group of people Bronies and those who support Bronies are!
Twenty-four days ago we announced our dream of producing a documentary about the phenomenon of "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" and its dedicated fans who live its values in their daily lives. Well, not only have thousands of members of the Brony Community and other members of the public come forward to encourage us, enough of them have shown their generosity that we can make an even better film than we ever imagined! They also helped the project become the 2nd most funded film of
My friends need your help!Some of you who have followed me in the past may know about this wonderful little zoo called The Wildlife Learning Center. WLC cares for a few dozen wild and exotic animals and treats them as "ambassadors" to help teach the public about wildlife conservation. What is so wonderful about WLC, is that many of the animals in there care are rescues. Many were illegally kept as pets and were either turned over or turned in to WLC for proper care. Others were animals born in the wild, but injury or acclimation to humans kept them from being able to survive in their natural habitats. Still others were exotic pets who grew too large or otherwise difficult to care for by their original owners. Without WLC, all of these rescued animals would be seriously ill or dead.My friends need your help! in Personal More Like This
Besides offering animals topnotch care, WLC is an amazing place to visit. This zoo is small, so visitors get to see the animals more up close and intimately than larger zoos. Even

The Server is our homeYesterday I was asked to review the server logs after another malicious attack on our server. When I was asked to do so I could not, because the girls and I were in the middle of our first recording session of the year. When the session was over I was exhausted after spending nearly eight hours solid on the computer, and needed to go do something else. By the time I returned home from my outing I was to tired to get the server logs.The Server is our home in Personal More Like This
In order to get the logs to look over user activity in order to spot any malicious looking activity I need to shut the server down, back the whole thing up, then go through each log top to bottom. This can take a couple of hours. Even if I do spot malicious looking activity I can not be sure the person I'm reading is actually the one committing crimes. A server log is circumstantial evidence only.
Today I checked to see if the server was up, and it is not. I have left it off to sleep until I can get to it, possibly

Need your help guys!Hi every one! I need a little help with the shops system prices. I'm not sure what to price every thing as.Need your help guys! in Personal More Like This
Here is the system so far.
You will be able to buy more items than you sell.
Sell items would be limited to: Emeralds, Stone Brick, raw-simple food items, torches. And maybe just a few other things. All other items in the system would be buy only.
Emeralds are the baseline currency. You will be able to buy them or sell them with cash, and you will be able to buy them with XP. You will be able to do so at the bank. I THINK you will be able to sell them back to the bank at or close to, the buy price, to give them a constant value. I'm not sure if a constant value would be a good economic idea, though.
I will be building a sort of simplified, Command Block based, "XP grinder" that will be more of a challenge run than a true grinder. It will be hard, and you will have to actually fight, not just sit passively waiting for XP to b
A Few Points of Clarification to the RulesHello everyone!A Few Points of Clarification to the Rules in Personal More Like This
In light of several recent events, and concerns voiced by a good few of you, I felt it was important to clarify some of the rules that was have on the server, and give you a few pointers on how to get better results on things you're trying to accomplish.
Don't Feed the Greifers
First and foremost, I would like to address those of you who have attempted to post screenshots to the fan club. While we highly encourage you to share screenshots of your creations and the fun you're having with us, there are certain things that do not belong in the fan club. This is a place to showcase creativity, not negativity.
Please do NOT post pictures of greifing, stealing, fighting, or any other bad behavior or the results of them to the fan club.
The very first Diamond Problem Solver Journal I ever did explains how you should react to greifing in detail, so give it a read, especially if you've been greifed and you want to know how to get th

Last but not least I will be making up a small form for the forum board for the Denizens to fill out. It'll have little things like likes and dislikes, Persona names and MC names... stuff like that. I am making it because it will help me with the community hub and Denizen spotlights. It will also help you guys get to know each other.

Stef needs help to create the Denizen's PreventersHi every one! With 1.8 upon us I feel it is time to take organizing our selves a bit more seriously. There has been much talk and rumors around the organization I want to create called the "preventers", and now is the time to clarify and classify all of that! I can't do it alone, however, and I need you guys to help me make it a reality.Stef needs help to create the Denizen's Preventers in Personal More Like This
I imagine them the Preventers to be a group of community minded people who help care for the map, the Denizens, and the new plays who have just joined. They also would represent the Denizens in other ways as well. How we will do this I have no idea.
I do have some rules I would like to set up so you guys know what I will, and will not allow in the organization. Other than that every thing will be up to you guys.
#1 There will be NO military actions what so ever unless a mod has ordered the action. This means the preventers will NOT go after greifers or animal killers with the intent to kill them/engage in PVP.

First and foremost, I like to thank my little sis who's been so supportive of me and she's a supporter of AppleDash and Twilestia. Haha! Also to all my real life friends who support me. Big shoutout to Jay and Shiney!
Second I must thank Lauren Faust :iconfyre-flye: and Studio B. Without her and the team at Studio B, none of this would've happen. She did something not many could do: Revitalized a franchise that is more than a 30 minute commercial to sell toys. She made something so awesome that everyone can enjoy it. So thank you for everything Lauren and Studio B many times over.

If you're a resident of the public Crafty Girl's server, chances are you're a fan of their videos, charity work, comics, or at least one of those things. So of course you value their opinions of you, and want them to be an active part of the server and community in general. I can assure you, they'd love to spread the love and fun around just as much as you'd like them to... but as you may notice, our server has the sort of problems any public server has. You want our lovely server to be a fun place that everyone can gather in to show the Diamond Denizens (and each other) support, right? Of course! But how can we achieve that? By looking at the common problems and what their causes are, we can figure out how to prevent them and encourage different results. Yes, we CAN make our server great!

Be a Diamond Problem Solver, Part 4Problem 4 - Soap BoxersBe a Diamond Problem Solver, Part 4 in Personal More Like This
No, they don’t fist-fight with detergent. Nor do they package the ol’ flower-scented body bars. Back in the olden days, people would stand on soap boxes to be seen and heard over the crowds of bustling streets. From Newspaper boys, to street performers, if you wanted attention, you were standing on a soap box. Nowadays we use that phrase to mean anyone who complains continuously, throws fits, or in any other way behaves garishly or dramatically to gain attention.
What causes it?
There are a lot of reasons for people to want attention, but why do people soap box for attention? The short answer is “Because it usually works”. Like greifing and bullying, this kind of behavior really bothers people, and people will gather around in attempts at silencing the soap boxer or bringing them back down to earth. It’s not what the soap boxer is after, but they don’t oft

This didn’t happen on the crafty girls server, so I don’t even know if you’ll answer this, but I thought it might be something you could talk about anyway so I’m gonna send it to you at least. There’s this guy on another server I’m on that was driving everyone crazy being really annoying and we’re pretty sure he was greifing some of us too. We all started ignoring him and he got really mad at first but when we kept ignoring him he started saying he was sorry a lot. Like, a LOT. He was apologizing about all sorts of things and said he wanted to spend time with us in our game we were playing. It was driving me crazy.
The thing is, I don’t think he’s telling the truth. I don’t think he’s sorry. I think he’s just waiting to get attention again so he can start acting like a jerk and driving us all nuts again. So I told him I didn’t believe him and he said I was mean fo
Diamond Problem Solver 6 - Hearing and Listening So we all know that there’s a difference between hearing and listening. In this modern age of text and chat-boxes, this has become a bit more abstract, but the point still stands that there is a difference between taking the information in and actually thinking about it. So this week, let’s look at what makes listening so different from hearing, why listening is important, and how to get people to listen rather than just hear.Diamond Problem Solver 6 - Hearing and Listening in Personal More Like This
You already know what listening is. But we’re trying to pick this topic apart and find solutions to problems, so let’s give ourselves a solid base to start from by defining listening. Listening, in this case, is where the information from the source is taken in AND processed. It’s that second part that makes it different from hearing, and it’s that process that we seek from others when we want them to listen to us.

If you’re a resident of the Crafty Girl’s server, you probably love what they do and who they are. And you love the server too. But problems arise here like any other public server, and it can be a real drag (for you and for the Crafty Girls too!). So let’s look at the common problems, what causes them, and what we can do to prevent them!
