* BanOnPolitics: One of the few unspoken rules on the podcast is that you ''cannot'' get political. The furthest anyone can get is to say "there's an election coming up, we don't care who you vote for as long as you vote". Going further is normally a BerserkButton for Gus, who will often reprimand the violator of the rule in some manner. This is slightly lifted for making fun of Donald Trump because it's hard for any semi-topical comedy not to, but only ''slightly.''

This is slightly During the 2016 US Presidential election, though, this got lifted for making fun of somewhat thanks to the controversy surrounding Donald Trump, and after Trump because it's hard for any semi-topical comedy not to, but only ''slightly.''''won'' the election, the rule was completely cast out, to the point Gus himself encouraged talking about it. When Brandon commented on this in a podcast, Gus simply declared that such a rule was pointless now and thinks the current political climate ''needs'' to be commented on.

* PromotedFanboy:
** Well, they had nothing to do with ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' to start with, then after the series took off Creator/{{Bungie}} started taking notice. By the time ''VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}'' came out they were getting cameos, and the gametype they invented (Grifball) got its own playlist in the last Bungie-made title, ''VideoGame/HaloReach'', which was later expanded upon in ''VideoGame/{{Halo 4}}''.
** They've also hired their own talented fans for various projects:
*** Luke [=McKay=] was hired for an official comic strip based on his fan art. He continued doing this for about three or so years.
*** Creator/GavinFree was a forum moderator turned intern turned ''[=RvB=]'' director turned Achievement Hunter mainstay. He now is the Creative Director for Rooster Teeth.
*** Ben King was hired to code the website at 15 after creating some impressive unofficial ''[=RvB=]''-related web applications.
*** Creator/MontyOum was a huge fan of ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' before being hired as the series' lead animator.
*** Creator/MichaelJones was discovered by Rooster Teeth when his ''VideoGame/{{Crackdown}} 2'' Orbs video got to the top of r/gaming on Website/{{Reddit}}. They were so impressed by it and Michael's other Website/YouTube videos that they gave his own show, ''Rage Quit'', and eventually hired him full-time for Achievement Hunter.
*** Barbara Dunkelman has been a long-time forum member and often volunteered to help out at events. She was eventually formally hired.
*** Creator/RayNarvaezJr made AH community videos long before he was officially hired for Achievement Hunter in 2012. He stayed with the company for three years until he left in 2015. Matt Bragg and Jeremy Dooley were also hired by AH in 2014, and the latter has since taken Ray's place in the main six.
*** Blaine Gibson was a fan of the show, who eventually became a Guardian at RTX and an Intern for the company while finishing his college degree. He now works in Live Action and produced the RT Recap each week.

** ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'' puts emphasis on the fact that despite the fact that the world isn't the fairy tale it seems, the characters still try to make a difference.
