Images on Tumblr can be copied & pasted elsewhere, which is the other reason I suggested it.  Sometimes when I am on my phone I post something like "Check tumblr link for pictures of blah-blah; feel free to post the picture in the thread, I just can't right now."  :)  Tumblr works really well as a photo-hosting site.

How do you post pics to the Arena when you're on your phone?  I'd love to find a way to do that.

I just click on the URL of the picture and hold my thumb or finger down till the copy/paste options appear. I have the option to open image in new window so that gives me the URL..? But as I said before, I don't upload images from my phone, which seems to be the bigger issue. I don't use anything that requires me to do that except email which is attachment, not copy and paste. But if I did upload to facebook on the phone, I imagine it'd be the same thing? Open the image and then copy paste the URL into the IMG tags just like with any other picture?

Sorry if that isn't what you're asking. I don't really know how else to reply XD. My phone is a Samsung but not a particularly exceptional one as I don't use it for much except texting and email etc.

We actually always announce when the new ponies are coming in the for sale and also customs section of the arena. We don't post pre order links at the same time here, since there can be delays. The Facebook group is easier for communication, live video feeds.
Another collector posted here that they were coming out of excitement.  We haven't announced pepper jack to the arena yet, because there is nothing to show. I also started an hqg1c topic last year to talk about the project and show ponies.. and not many replied...

We will be working on updating the mylittlewiki hqg1c that way all the names and photos of current and potential upcoming customs are listed and pictured. :)

I know you probably have no intention of replicating the Celestial Ponies but would you ever consider doing a brand new character in the style of the Celestial Ponies with the swirls and antennas and tinsel in the hair?

Yes what i meant was its hard for me to post images from a phone but apparently photobuckets app might be playing nice today. Let's see if this works!

Here are the few items currently on pre order. Glitter modified dragons, cowboy hats, and our teaser for Pepperjack

Also part of the reason for a closed group is to try and bring the community together. We screen out potential trolls/hackers etc to keep our group safe. We want this to be a community effort and to reach as many G1 fans as possible. We encourage this project to be more word of mouth than putting everything on public forums so it brings collectors together by commumicating with one another.

I'm a bit late to the party, but I own Genie and Puppy Love and I adore them! I'm planning on getting more asap.

I don't think they are overpriced for what they are, and I can't wait for them to make more designs!

Oh Photobucket, why you gotta be like that?  Makes me worry about what I'll do if Flickr does the same thing someday.

As for new designs, there's a lot coming this summer!

Hi everyone! I just wanted to share some updates. Pepper Jack is coming along nicely... He is still not finished, but here is a progress photo. I hope you all like him. I will be setting up a Orlando Pony Fair pick up thread under Pony Fairs, sometime this. As well as another thread in the For Sale section with pre order links to ship for your country / region. visitors can't see pics , please register or login

Thanks for posting pictures of him. I hope you will keep posting here on the arena. :)

Like some of you I also find it hard to find the information. Social media is social media. If you have a huge pony project going on, why would you not want to post it on the pony forum?

this

 What I am really getting at is the vague "this is happening!" and then the need to go hunting for that information as opposed to having it easily accessible.

no problem. I never post on the arena until we have the sample ready to show. I have also updated the pre order post in the for sale section. ;-)

I know it wasn't meant that way, but that makes it sound like the Arena is a place full of trolls and hackers :P Just saying.

Thank you for the picture of Pepperjack :)

I think it is important to make sure your product is available to everyone in terms of promotion. It's basic business sense to promote it everywhere you can, not expect your customers to play treasure hunt to find it. I understand about not posting here till you have a prototype, but what you are actually doing is classifying your customer base not by interest but by the social media platforms they use.

If it is your policy not to post till you have a prototype, you shouldn't be offering teasers and information in fragments in other places and not here, because people can easily bring bits of that information here (as we saw). It may have been someone else who mentioned Pepper Jack here, but they only were able to do so because information was available in other places that wasn't available here. If you release the same info in the same places at the same time, that doesn't happen.

And I feel like if you want to maximise your return, the phone aspect isn't valid. You are operating a business concern. I don't know of any business which limits its advertising because it's easier and more convenient to post by phone to certain limited areas. If you want to sell the maximum number of ponies, you need to promote those ponies, and not make people here feel like they are less important (or maybe trolls and hackers) because it's easier to post from a phone.

Basically what I'm getting at is that the convenience should be on the buyer's end, not the seller's. If you're asking your buyers to do all the  legwork to find out information, or to join specific groups or forums just to get information, then you're risking limiting your market. Not everything can be done on reputation. More promotion here has got to be good for the sales of these and that helps everyone because we all want them to continue for a long time to come. And we want to have the opportunity to buy them without the massive headache of finding out where to buy from and what is coming out next.
