|Welcome! This group is intended for My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic flash animations and cartoons. If it moves, it's probably in here: we accept and feature art ranging from GIFs, flash movies, music videos, and games.|
Useful tools and stuff!

Why join or watch? If you create or even just like the medias mentioned, and of course like MLP:FiM, then this group is for you.
Submission limits are currently 3 per day. I'll raise the limit if it gets to be inconvenient for anyone, or lower it if the group picks up speed and submissions get to be too frequent. Animators are a little more few and far between though, so I can't forsee this being an issue.
If you'd like to be a contributor (only perk is having your submissiosn auto-approved), I just ask that you've been in the group for about two weeks and are a regular animator. You DO need to have a few quality animations present in your gallery, however. Feel free to drop me a note to request an invite: Zedrin
Please read this before submitting!
Featured: This is intended for full-length and polished animations. You can't submit here, but if I see your deviation is of superb quality, I will either resend a request or move it into this folder.
Interactive: For buttons, games, creators, etc.
Animation: For short animations, such as walkcycles, movie clips, etc.
Storyboards and Animatics: For planning stages of an animation, or, more specifically, films. Do not NEED to be animated. Static WIPs can go here, as can short, WIP snippets of animation and animatics themselves.
Films: For full-length animations following a story. (A lot of these I can anticipate will become featured.) Note these do not necessarily need to be a film format.
GIFs: For short animations that are in a .gif format (typically smaller, very short, such as icons. Please don't submit basic recolors, however).
More Submission Information
Favorites: The favorites folder is unused
Note about the featured folder: You can't submit directly here, but you can nominate your's or others' works to go into this folder. Just send a note to the group, or include a note in your correspondence when submitting that you'd like your "best work" to go into featured.
There are some quality standards enforce. They can be lax, but please bear in mind it's not the end of the world if your work is declined.
Please submit things that are animation specific Recolored gifs or static images with a trivial animated element (such as some kind of effect in the corner of the image) don't quite belong here. For something to count as a pony animation, it must be a pony (or ponies) that is animated!
Also do not submit anything that is just a posing of puppet sets. Unless you rigged them yourself, these are held to a higher standard than other submissions. At the very least said sets must be animated, tweened, or lipsynched in some way that requires notable animation ability (lipsynches shouldn't just be a looping clip, etc.).
Do not submit anything you didn't create. Collaborations are permitted, however.
Do not submit screencaptures. These aren't things you animated.
Do not submit anything that violates the ToS.
Pornography isn't allowed. No rule-34-ing the ponies.
No explicit gore either. Sorry Cupcakes fans.
Don't be a brat. This group has lax standards but it still has some.
