Keep it fun, feel free to combine ideas, and converse. This is YOUR chance to come up with potential ideas for Canterlot Avenue!
If we see anything spiraling out of control or any violation our rules, we will have to remove it. Please keep it clean and feel free to have fun with it.
Topics: new features, ideas

Here to agree with Maxh, Pandora and Thunder!!
Crystal Summer
same same!!

Why not use the activity points as a sort of commission system? Or as Maxh said, trade in for like, hearts or little custom emotes you can have on your profile, or to use in the chat system. Just a thought.
Trixie Lulamoon
Agreed but at the same time if for commissions I don't really see the incentive for artists?
Moonlight
trading the time of our life for some art

But then people who spend a lot of time on the site might get rewarded for it, can't have that! /s

A lot of the staff are artists maybe they get paid by the activity points (and this is going to get controversial) through the donations. I'm not against the people who run the site using donations as a source of income. In fact I'm all for it

Events specifically: 1) I loved the Halloween event last year, but it felt everyone ran out of steam going into weeks three and four. That and (from my perspective anyway) it felt harder to motivate people on team Misty to participate once Sunshine took the early lead (may have been because we were...View More

1) I would to put it out there for a friendship day that happens on the day before the site's anniversary. This event will consist of blog post from the staff to shout out some cool rpers that has changed the other rpers life. Such as an example, finally getting to meet a friend from the site IRL, o...View More

Take in consideration the following points about making an event: - Level of artistic value of everyone: Putting out an idea is easy, but if said idea is mostly surrounded by nip picking artistic values, then the event is promptly gonna fail or be heavily look down upon, the first event was pretty...View More

Maybe we add more advertisements and for being longer active here you get a small cut of the money as points, you can spend on art...we just require more adds! just allow all of them!
Acry Weaver
I really disagree with using activity points for 'commissions'/trading in for art. This place isn't like DeviantArt ^^; Spending the points on, for example, pre-made special emotes or fun little gifts to send to friends however, is far more preferable!

I disagree. A lot of people don't properly know how to use PayPal nor have some sort of income to commission. As someone who's been scammed trying to commission someone I think using activity points for commission could ensure people are actually getting what they paid for
Abby
But we don't PAY for our activity points. The concept of shitposting to get points to then purchase work that is worth MONEY is ludicrous-and I say that as an artist. Acry's right-if artists WANT to make art for the site, in the form of emojis and such, then sure-it's their choice and volunteered ar...View More

Plus on the back end, how do you expect Poniverse to facilitate this? Do you want them to pay off the artists to make this happen and take a cut out of funds that can be used for keeping the servers up or improving the site in other ways? Or do you expect the points to be a reward in and of themselv...View More
Princess Neon Synthwave
True. Very true actually. In my opinion though maybe when a shit post gets put up it gets marked as such by the user and isn't accounted for activity points. I don't know I think little emojis would just get bland. Another idea we could do is once you have enough activity points (and I don't know if...View More

If the opportunity presents itself sometime, for artist to make lil' small things into a big store, I'll personally make some emotes, or shiny animated foods / accessories / emotes. To be spent by anybody for activity points.
Alex Razor
So On The Whole Activity Points Topic, Why Not Use Them Like On Previous Sites To Buy Gifts To Send To People? It's A Bit Of A Dead Feature At This Point But I Think It Would Stop The Arguing And Give An Incentive To Spend The Points.
Silver Shield
I am going to take the opportunity to ask, because I never have asked someone who did this before: Why capital letters on every word?
Alex Razor
Because I Am Very OCD About The Way I Type On Here Good Sir.

I Don’t Get What You’re Getting At Here Honestly, Sorry?
Butterscotch Ormand
(Sorry for commenting multiple times). A very low priority feature I would like to see is added functionality to the quizzes. Since most quizzes users make are compatibility tests, it might be nice to have the ability for the creator to assign points to different answers instead of having only one a...View More
