More SalvageCon announcements!

[Image: vsgSc1I.jpg]

Hi Everyone,

Tonight's the biggest announcement yet!

We're announce the second of our special guests: Peter New.

He’ll be dropping in via video link to discuss the show and check in on the shenanigans. You’ll be able to ask questions as well as to learn more about his craft.

For those who don’t know Peter, here’s a short bio:

Peter New is an actor, voice actor and writer. He has over 80
professional credits including: Motive, Delete, Fringe, Mr Young, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, Lost Treasure of the Grand Canyon, Psych, Men In Trees and Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed. He has voiced many cartoon characters, from ‘Evan’ in Barbie Thumbelina, to ‘Ian Vashti’ in Gundam00, ‘Lunk’ in Powerpuff GirlsZ, but is most well known as 'Sunil' in Littlest Pet Shop, and ‘Big Macintosh’ in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Other voice credits include InuYasha, Warhammer 40000: Dawn of War, Sushi Pack, Fantastic Four, Rekkit Rabbit, Martha Speaks, Dino Train, Goola City and Need 4 Speed: Hot Pursuit.

Peter began acting with a sketch comedy troupe called The Legend of Bonefish, who disbanded twenty years ago, although some of those old sketches have sprung up on YouTube, starring middle-aged versions of themselves. Weird. He has broad interests, from astronomy to photography, architecture to environment. He plays a little piano, a bit of guitar, some ukulele, and a passel of drums. One day he wants to cut a record. He enjoys cooking, but more than that, eating. Yummy.

(No I'm not going to use this banner every week; new banner each week)

G'day buddies, throw another strewth on the barbie 'cause it's the first edition of Great Southern Swag, huzzah! Cheer

What... what is it? Oh yeah, each week (yeah right) I'll write one of these showcasing recent fan art, fan music, fan fiction, and other stuff put out by Australian bronies. Occasionally others, but it'll be mostly Aussies, 'cause we're Bronies Australia. Yeah? You've heard of Australia. No? Koalas and kangaroos, boomerangs, didgeridoos, everything that will kill you? Oh never mind.

Ahem, anyway, bronies are awesome and do some pretty awesome things. Let's check them out after the break!

  Issuing A Few Warnings

After yesterday's certain debacle, the mods have been noticing a recent trend of off topic or non contributive posts in threads that aren't in Ramblings. We've been pretty easy on these things and letting it go/closing the thread/sweeping it under the rug/letting it play out and resolve itself, etc. However, this issue is starting to add up and starting to seep out some negative energy over the forums.

To address this issue, we'll be starting to become more strict with the warnings if the thread topic derails from actual discussion. Warnings for non contributive posts are pretty low so there's no need to worry much. But they do stack up pretty quickly to bans if you keep ignoring our warnings. We'll still be lenient on issues/constructive criticism of threads and posts towards users. This is mainly to stop people from purposely posting irrelevant image reactions and/or info that doesn't add anything to the discussion.

In saying that, the recently closed thread have broken some rules from both sides that we just can't ignore. Hence we've agreed to hand out those warnings accordingly. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to leave a message here. Issuing out warnings is not something us mods want to do (well for me at least) but it's best to nip the bud before it turns into something worse.

Hey guys,

In the past Ponies at Dawn have released 5 albums full of awesome music, and we’re looking forward to extending that to a 6th album. We’re proud to announce that we’re opening for submissions for our 6th album - Starlit Flames.

We broke new ground earlier this year with our 5th album Celestial Planes, which was biggest album yet featuring a massive 42 tracks from artists big and small. It was by far our most successful venture yet, raising over $1000 from optional donations which went towards the artists who made it onto the album, and we hope that with your help we can keep the momentum going with another epic album.

As with last time, all the money made by the album from donations on BandCamp will go towards the artists who make it onto the album, as thanks for the hard work put in to get on. As always, the album will be under the pay what you want model so that those who don’t wish to pay for it don’t have to.

Submissions form:

Submissions due: September 21st (contact us if you need a few days extension)

For more information, make sure to check out our information document which has an FAQ included:

We have a Skype group for general discussion as well as a second group specifically for talking about music and providing feedback to each other. To be added to one or both of these Skype groups just send a Skype contact request to alexander.ashenden and make sure to include something about wanting to join the group in your contact request.

BandCamp with our past releases:

Thanks, The Ponies at Dawn Team (Arofire, Camsy, ExplodingPonyToast, TheTimberWolffe)
