|Hello and welcome to the Desktop Ponies Team.|
We make animations for the desktop ponies application which allow these cute little ponies to run all over your desktop. Feel free to watch us and if you know how to sprite, add some animations which can be submitted on our ponychan thread.
- A short explanation regarding group membership -
This group is for existing team members of the desktop ponies project. This means that the members have contributed to the project and created animations that were included in the program. If you want to apply as a member, you should first create animations for a new pony (or other characters from the show) or new animations for existing characters and also submit them to the respective ponychan thread (links below).
In short, if you aren't a contributor, don't ask us to join this group: Any person leaving messages of "i wanna join!!!!!" either on the group's front page or via notes will be rejected on sight.
Instead, you can simply watch it.
- A short explanation regarding pony requests -
This group doesn't accept requests. If you want us to make a pony for you or add a certain character to the program, you should visit the individual members' accounts and check if they are open for suggestions or requests: any request posted in this group or sent via notes will be rejected on sight.

This is a free, non-profit application we make for you guys so we'd appreciate not being taken advantage of.
And please, if you use anything made by this group, give full credit to us and do NOT charge people for points or money, and neither "suggest" them to give you donations to pretend to bypass this limitation.
