YMMV: Equestria Daily

  • Awesome Music: The music that came with this post. It's rather fitting, considering that the post itself is about the site's yearly horror story-writing competition.
  • Double Standard: 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.
  • Fandom Rivalry: At one point in time, The site had a ban on all Sonic the Hedgehog-related content due to some irrational hatred between a Vocal Minority of bronies and fans of the Sonic series (though it would seem that things have cooled off since then).
    • Sort-of-Justified: The Sonic fanbase has a terrible reputation amongst greater nerd-dom, and many bronies - mindful of their own poor reputation - go out of their way to deny any association with them. Same thing with furries.
  • Fan Hater/Acceptable Targets: Like clop and/or gorefics? Then prepare to be viewed as the scum of the earth by a large chunk of the userbase and some of the staff.
    • 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.
  • Hell Is That Noise : Have your headphones on while reading the Nightly Roundup 666? Then you're in for a nice treat. Hope you can sleep well tonight.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Phoe's OC looks almost exactly the same as the later official pony Diamond Rose (who was initially toy line exclusive, but is making the jump to the Expanded Universe). This resemblance is noted in a couple of Phoe's posts.
  • Insufferable Genius: Some of their pre-readers tend to come off as this.
  • Never Live It Down: When Phoe was running the artist training grounds, one of the themes she proposed was ropes. From that day forward, her OC is portrayed as having a thing for bondage.
