''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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.]]

* HotterAndSexier: The site occasionally posts "saucy" fan art but generally still keeps it PG. [[http://www.equestriadaily.com/2016/09/drawfriend-stuff-best-of-rarity-part-2.html This post]]

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* ColbertBump: Any site that gets linked here can expect one of these. Just look for the "CHAAARGE" tag. Also true for fanfics, art, and just about anything else they post really.
** For Youtubers in particular, having their videos posted on Equestria Daily is considered a badge of honour, with creators often expressing gratitude/disbelief that their work "made it".



* MilestoneCelebration: When the blog was young, artists used to celebrate every time the blog's hits passed another million with a special comic. However, the blog eventually became so popular and started getting a million hits so frequently that this almost became a daily thing. When the brony fandom exploded during the summer of 2011, the hit count rose so rapidly that it became impossible to keep up with every one. Now, only huge milestones would be met with any acknowledgement.

The blog eventually became one of the pillars of the ''MyLittlePony'' fanbase. If it gets posted on ''Equestria Daily'', chances are most bronies know about it. Hasbro and Creator/TheHub have even sent Equestria Daily exclusive content (the extended "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pTPqjKk_xCo Equestria Girls]]" video being a prime example), and the blog has done exclusive interviews with members of the show's staff including show creator Creator/LaurenFaust herself.

** 2016: Site was taken over by Starlight Glimmer, who proceeded to rename the blog the "Equestria Inquirer" and started spreading her policy of total equality using the posts. On the mobile apps, the background was changed to red and all fonts were changed to Comic Sans.
