* FanDisillusionment: This happened to Calpain, which led him to leave the blog for a short period of time. The reasons for this [[http://www.equestriadaily.com/2013/09/nightly-roundup-773.html was explained in a Nightly Roundup]], but it can basically be boiled down to FanDumb and UnpleasableFanbase. Many people were sad when he first announced it, but according to [[https://twitter.com/CalpainEqD/status/383724599713615872 a recent Twitter post]], he feels better now.

** 2017: Site renamed to "Sauce 'n' Pony Daily", in honor of the saucy art compilations that have proven to be a massive success. The sauce-ness was taken to maximum to feature actual sauces.

''Equestria Daily'' is a fan-run news blog for the ever so popular show ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' that launched on January 19th, 2011 and is run primarily by Shaun "Sethisto" Scotellaro. The blog was created in an attempt to create a more unified fanbase and partly as a response to the banning of ponies on [[ImageBoards 4chan]] in early 2011. In addition to posting the latest news pertaining to everyone's favorite show about pastel colored ponies, the site features a lot of high quality fan art, fanfics that get judged by a panel of pre-readers, custom toys, and all kinds of other fan-created content from across the brony fandom.

* DoubleStandard:
** Ship-fics involving lesbianism normally have no problem getting posted on the site unless they're ''really'' explicit (or just bad). Male/Male fics however are more difficult, though they do appear from time to time.
** Similarly, stories [[RonTheDeathEater demonizing Princess Celestia]] used to get through very easily and perpetuated the Fanon versions of her over the [[TheHighQueen show version]]. In contrast, it is much easier to find stories and works of [[DracoInLeatherPants Nightmare Moon getting a sympathetic]] portrayal despite being the opposite of show and comic canon. While not as severe as it once was, this is still noticeable, with [[http://www.equestriadaily.com/2015/09/story-white-out.html immoral Celestia]] stories still getting pushed despite the fan base now giving them [[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/257996/white-out near universally bad ratings.]]

* FanworkBan: Brony in Equestria stories (self-inserts where the show exists, and the main character is a huge fan) are automatically rejected. Before ''Equestria Girls'', any humanized stories were also banned, though in this case the rules were later relaxed.
