Hello, everyone!
We are here once again at this time of the year where we celebrate the birthday of Canterlot Avenue. That’s right, Canterlot Avenue has reached 4 years of being online serving the community, and being a place for new experiences for all. We are so happy to have reached this amazing milestone and we’re happy that you were able to be a part of this. Whether you joined yesterday or have been here since day 1, we appreciate the time and support that you have given us through our ups and downs.
Canterlot Avenue originally started as a small project developed by Corona, which was meant to serve as a replacement for the ever missed, Pony/Bronysquare. With the help of former Ponysquare/Bronysquare staff, a team was put together which we refer to as “The OGs.” This team consisted of both a small number of moderators and team leads of the Squares who wanted to see this fandom continue along, even if it meant in a new place. With their help, along with new additions to the team, such as Comp and Snow Storm, we were able to establish a much more clear direction for the website and, thanks to Snow Storm, we had our official logo along with some wonderfully designed mascots that we still use today. Now that there was a vision, which was for us to become the desired place for fans of the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic series, with an extension to the soon to come, My Little Pony: A New Generation series, development planning was started. Thankfully, after a tweet that was sent to, now our parent company, Poniverse, they kindly reached out to us with an interest in taking in our little project and making it part of their roster of services that they provide.
After our merger, we proceeded to reach the next step which was to purchase the necessary software needed for us to have a platform ready, which the deadline was set for December 4th of 2017. Fast-forwarding ahead, the long-awaited day finally arrived. It was launch day! This day was going to be the day that got everything in motion. Most of the team was still either at college or at work, but we set aside some time to make sure that the launch happened on time.
Then, the switch was flipped and….Well, our servers were struggling because of the influx of traffic. No, seriously, there were so many of you attempting to join at once to earn your spot in the top 100 for our special badge, that our servers were having trouble keeping up! But no other moment felt great for all of us in the team than seeing so many people excited to join a new place that they’d call their home. It was heartwarming.
Many years have passed since that initial moment. This website has gone through many ups and downs and a lot of people have come and gone; however, we have done our best to ensure that this place continues to remain online and still serve as a home for those in our fandom who are looking for one. Many things have changed, and while we have made some progress and improvements, there will always be more work to do. With your support and loyalty, we know that Canterlot Avenue will remain accessible to all fans of the MLP series for many years to come. We hope that you all who have been with us through and through will continue to be a part of the community to celebrate more milestones with us. The entire Canterlot Avenue team appreciates all of you and we will do our best to ensure CA continues to be a hub where you, and new users, can rely on to make new great memories and establish meaningful friendships at.
As one fatherly figure once told a very young pony: We’ll do our part. Hoof to heart!
If you have made it to the end of this long message, then you will finally learn how you can earn yourself a free badge! You can use this badge to show that you were here for this milestone. In past years, we only have limited the ability to earn a badge to 1 to 2 days; however, this year we want to give everyone the opportunity to earn this badge, so this year’s event is rather simple.
You will have 1 week from today to share one of your most meaningful memories that you have had while being a part of Canterlot Avenue. It can be whatever you want, as long as it is maintained within the guidelines of the website, of course. If you do not wish to share a memory and simply would want to request the badge, you may do so as well.
You must comment on this blog to count as requesting for the badge.
The badge will be handed out at the end of the event date, which will be on December 11th at 2 AM Central Time US. Once this time is reached, comments will be locked.
From all of Canterlot Avenue's staff, we thank you for being a part of this milestone with us. And hopefully, we see you be a part of many more years.

That conflict between chosing between Knight Wolf and Flam though a while back ago really actually kinda made me crazy though, Flam.
