The Gang of Five

It certainly has been a crazy year, hasn’t it?  Well, thankfully, a new year is upon us and here at the Gang of Five forum we have a new year of showcases, prompts, and themes to get the new year started in the right way.  We wish you all a happy new year, and we look forward to what you have in store for us this year!

For the month of January we have a new character showcase.  Please warmly welcome Littlefoot's Mother! :)littlefoot The character showcase topic for this month can be found here.

Also keep in mind that the December and January prompts for the fanfic prompt challenge is now open.  We are doing things a bit differently this season and allowing for people to either fulfill a monthly prompt or a suggested prompt during each month.  I look forward to seeing what you all come up with! :)  The fanfic prompt rules and list of monthly prompts can be found here.

Hello everyone  :rainbowwave

By now you should have received the latest edition of our Newsletter! After a bit of a flawed start last month, we think we've got it all figured out for future editions. Still, for those of you who still did not receive it (make sure your email address is up to date), and for newer members who want to read up on old editions, we've decided to add the newsletter in a separate post on the forum as well.
 
My thanks go out to @Anagnos , @OwlsCantRead and @StardustSoldier who basically compiled the entire newsletter this month. You guys have been a great help  :wub

So without further ado, please find the June 2020 Newsletter attached to this post.

Don't mention it, Mumbling. You're supposed to help your friends when they need it and making the newsletter was actually rather fun. I wouldn't mind doing it again in the future if you ever need assistance. :)

Hmm it seems like the email version didn't have the images on it for some reason. Good job on this one though guys!  :chompysmile

Hm, that's weird, because I did receive the email with images. It could be your mail client automatically hiding images from an untrusted source, maybe?

And yeah sorry I'm late but I did enjoy working on this as well! Though it was originally to cover a shortfall I don't mind continuing on.
Would it be possible for swimmers and flyers to get more love around here? Both figuratively… and literally.

Yep! Sadly all @mail addresses automatically bounce so we have to do them 1 by 1 after sending out the main batch. Didn't get around to that this time! Hope to do that this weekend!

understood.
Is that some kind of bug so you have to manually send emails individually? That's just some manual labor. :O

Yeah, not a bug but all @mail and @gmx addresses see our massive email lists as spam and do not allow us to send those emails like that, so we have to do them manually! Manual labor indeed, but the same goes for the main list of addresses so it's not a big deal - I just have to remember to do it :D
