Since there are a lot of new members to the group as well as more underappreciated characters found a home here, the rules are needed to be written in much clearer way.
This group is only for characters that at least once showed up in the show, EG or official comics. That means no OCs! But also, we want to show the world the not so well-known characters from the show, so try to prevent contributing images of Mane 6, Spike, CMC, Princesses and other major characters, but also images of Lyra and Bon Bon, Octavia, Derpy etc. as long as there aren't any less-known characters with them.
Also it's hard to judge, but try to avoid submitting "generic" background ponies used just for mass scenes (like Noteworthy for example), characters here have to have some certain "appearance" which allows you to tell them apart at first sight from the others
If you are unsure where to submit a character you've found, look here: (Most used folders are in bold)
Featured - only the finest art of the characters or a really rare character
Raven-InkWell - Princess Celestia's (unicorn version)/ Mayor Mare's (earth pony version) assistant
