While this thread is on the /fic/ board, that doesn’t mean that members of other boards can’t participate, with the intention of eventually moving over to other boards like /art/ and /rp/. Ultimately, the goals here are 1) to host an event to facilitate camaraderie among MLPchan-goers of the various boards and 2) to have an expansive, interesting, and inspiring world open to the public for anything from role-playing to art to writing to music or to whatever the heart's desire, given they follow the license.

4. The sign-up period will be from now to Monday, May 13, midnight UTC. (The project will still be open to latecomers should they want to join, but they’ll have to assist a current participant or come up with their own valid, but unused, Creation Category.)

7. The participants will chose the cluster they want in the order they signed up, with myself going last.
