Hey guys. I'm in the process of updating the Equestria Girls characters just a little bit and wanted to ask those of you who actually use them in the Desktop Ponies program for some feedback. So far, I've started the names of all Equestria Girls characters with "EgG" so they appear all neatly grouped together in the character selection screen. The drawback is that you can't quickly jump to them by pressing the first letter of their name on your keyboard (since, thanks to the "EqG" bit, they all start with "E").

My question now basically is this: Do you prefer the names as they currently are or are you okay if I removed the "EqG" from all of the character names?

Keep in mind that, either way, I'm adding "Equestria Girls" as a custom tag to all of these characters so you can still easily find them or filter them out once you have added that tag in the options of your own program.

On a somewhat related note, you know how there's this "Norman" character and this other character who's basically a recolor of him that I've so far simply called "Other Norman"? So original, I know. Anyway, I've been toying with the idea of renaming him for the longest time and, seeing how the first Norman is based on his Derpybooru name Normal Norman, I've decided to call this other guy "Eric". As in... well... Generic Eric. So yeah, this just as a small heads-up. I don't really expect the name to catch on, but in the unlikely event that this was your favorite character ever and your future self was worried because they couldn't find him under his original name anymore, well, that's the reason why. And just in case you are curious, the other candidates for the new name were (Ordinary) Larry and (Regular) Reggie. Yeah...

Well, I think that's it. Bye :)

Edit: It's decided now: the "EqG" part will be removed from the beginning of the character names. Thanks for every single person (quite literally one single person) for their feedback. It was much appreciated. :)

It's pretty easy, actually. Just download the program from the first post of this thread, unzip it and run "Desktop Ponies.exe" to have ponies and other characters walk around on your screen. :)

I have it downloaded already from another site..i don't remember where. but there are no ponies in it..? I don't know I could try downloading the link you sent me instead. Ang one more question. is there a way to get a personalized pony or OCs running around the screen instead?

Well, the download on the site I linked you to comes with a whole bunch of ponies already included, so yeah, you should probably try that instead.
And yes, it is indeed possible to add your own characters to it. Every character is basically a separate folder with a bunch of gifs and a bit of simple code. If you are interested in creating your own, there's this tutorial I once made.

Can you believe no one has done Autumn Blaze or Stellar Flare yet?

Perhaps you could point out this travesty to the other members of the desktop poners team.

That's probably because not a lot of members are still active, and those that are usually focus on characters that personally interest them.
You are welcome to use the templates to create your own versions of these characters (and then maybe even submit them to the project for others to enjoy). I mean, if you want to.
