@ScarletKittie: @Newten:

Congrats guys! I find keeping a list of wiki work makes it easier to keep track and organized in addition to the wiki project blog.

@ScarletKittie: I've removed Zecora from the Earth Pony page, she's definitely closest to an Earth Pony, but the Friendship is Magic wikia (and the first episode she's in) make out Zebras as a pretty separate species. Not sure if I should add a "Zebra Pony" page or something like that though, since she's the only Zebra so far.

@Newten: Ah, yeah. You're right. Forgot they made her out to be a different species. I don't think we need to put a zebra page, though. Like you said, she is the only zebra in the show at this point. If more were to spring up then a page would be warranted. Also, I've added Canterlot and the Everfree Forest for locations. Might add Sweet Apple Acres since they have numerous episodes in that location. What do you think?

@ScarletKittie: Yeah absolutely, there are plenty of locations to add; Appleloosa, Dodge Junction and so on. I think as long as it's been featured in an episode it deserves a page. We can add pages for the Library/Twilight's house, Fluttershy's house, the Cake's shop (I forget the name) and any other places like that too.

Edit: Added Spitfire.

@Newten: A quick question on background ponies. Should we credit ponies that are simply in the background of the episode and have no speaking lines? I'm assuming even if they don't speak the mane cast get credit, but what about characters like the Cutie Mark Crusaders, Granny Smith and Derpy?

@ScarletKittie: Yeah I was thinking about this earlier. I think it would be best to only include characters with spoken lines in the character section and then add a section called "Background Characters" in the episode pages and list all the characters who made an appearance, even if it was the mane cast. I think that's the best way to handle it.

Set it up like this (making all this stuff up for the example):

Background Characters

  • Derpy was briefly shown behind Rainbow Dash juggling in this episode.
  • Doctor Whooves was seen buying carrots in this episode.
  • Twilight Sparkle, Scootaloo, Smarty Pants and Snips were briefly shown in the background in this episode.

This is really good stuff! I'm currently in another project, but I'll help you out with filling out some of those pages on here (and Screened as well).

@Bigheart711: Glad to have the help! Feel free to add pages; just post what you've added here and we'll put it on the main post.

Also, if you and could let me know if you fill out any of the episode pages that would be great. Currently on a quest to get those filled and don't want to spend time on an episode that's been done.

@ScarletKittie: I normally only fill out the docks of episodes, but that could be arranged if I have enough time to fill in. I'll also help out with some of the character articles! ;)

Added a reminder to always check the wiki guide before editing pages.

@Newten: Were we having a problem with people following the style guide?

@ScarletKittie: Not as far as I know, just added it to be safe, especially if some new users sign up to edit the MLP pages.

@Newten: Ah, got it. Just wanted to be sure.

Great job guys! I had an idea that's like a newspaper report for Anime Vice's behind the scenes wiki editor. I will include you guys. Look forward to it this weekends.

It's nice to see the Pony-fever being put to good use in favor of the wiki! :)
