1-No being a jerk! Try to be nice. <br> 2-When Discord comes, if he bewitches you, act the opposite. (This goes for Equestria only; for Equestria Girls, it's Dazzle and her crew who does it) <br> 3-If Dicord or Dazzle come around, it's not godmodding, even though Discord's been reformed. <br> 4-There are only 6 ements of harmony, and they're the same ements as tey are on TV, just with new ponies. <br> 5-ATOM BLAST IS THE ONLY PONY WHO CAN GRANT THE ELEMENTS! <br> 6-Two earth ponies, two pegasi, two unicorns for the elements. <br> 7-If your pony goes through the portal to Earth, post it in the EQUESTRIA GIRLS RESULT! If vise versa, post in the EQUESTRIA RESULT. <br> 8-Fall formal and the Gala are invite only. I wanted to do that like the actual show. <p> Pretty please follow these rules! :-) <br> ~Atom Blast
