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. :)

I would like to add the Equestria Girls to my Desktop Ponies as well as the pony versions of the Dazzlings and Sunset Shimmer. How do I do that?

Well, I already told you where to find the downloads of my Equestria Girls characters. As for the pony versions of Sunset Shimmer and the Dazzlings, they are already included in the program. If your version doesn't have them, it's probably outdated.

This is a random question but since you're from Germany, do you like cuckoo clocks and have you ever heard of the fall of the Berlin wall? Also, I'm not exactly sure how to do a private comment.

I'm not a fan of cuckoo clocks (too noisy) and I think you will be hard-pressed to find anyone who hasn't at least heard of the fall of the wall.
Also, to send private notes, you'll find a button with a yellow pencil-and-paper icon at the top right of every profile page that says "Send a Note".

Thank you! The reason that I did it was because I can get pretty desperate for people to notices my ideas and I just wanted advice, but now I realize I just have to be patient. I hope you understand :)

Yeah, but you have to realize that the comment sections in my gallery are not a place to advertise your ideas and I'd prefer them to not become too cluttered with random posts. You can send me private notes if you want to talk to me about whatever, but if you want to announce something to the world and it doesn't have anything to do with the art you're commenting on, better stick with your own journal (or find a forum with likeminded people or something).

Hmm, thanks. I may have overreacted a bit myself, so I accept her apology.
