Added DiffLines:

* 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".

** Equestria Daily is forever associated with making the infamous "Background pony" joke about [[EnsembleDarkhorse Applejack]], that and the joke later on about Applejack's implied dead parents, to the point where commentators were arguing whether or not [[SeriousBusiness people should feel sorry for fictional characters]]. [[EpicFail Within a fandom]]. This resulted with the joke being removed.

** This also applies to fans of humanized ponies (and the artists who draw them). Aside from once-in-a-blue-moon art threads focusing on them, humanizations are conspicuously absent from Equestria Daily.

Now it's not too uncommon to see humanized ponies on occasion as post header images

** 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 Moo 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.]]

* 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.

** Creators who get subpar work featured on the site (either due to submitting it without realizing it isn't that good, or due to someone else submitting it for them) are going to end up the subject of mockery due to a ColbertBump resulting in a flood of negativity.
