• Equestria Daily Commenting Rules - Last Updated 6/3/2018



    Friendship is Magic. 

    Regardless of how close to your heart and soul you hold the lessons of friendship taught by our favorite show, being friendly towards your fellow commenters is best for everyone. This place is for you and everyone so have a good time, discuss ponies, and enjoy the site! Be kind and respectful of other site guests. Being rude, disrespectful or making personal attacks against them is not the way. Derogatory and racist slurs and terms are strictly prohibited! This also includes Nazi imagery.


    Shhh! No spoilers!

    Please be respectful of others and their schedules and don't spoil episodes for them outside spoiler related posts. For 24 hours after an episode has aired in the US, any and all discussions outside those posts should be hidden with the html tags for spoilers. Just add at the beginning and at the end of your spoilers to hide them. Once this time has elapsed, free discussion may take place.


    Do not provide explicit content to the masses.

    We have legally underage visitors here and it is your responsibility to keep conversations and content safe for these very minors. This includes links, images, videos, chat, voice and avatar pictures. If you want to say you find a character attractive, that’s all good, but no explicit and overly inappropriate comments please. If you would like to link to SFW content on a generally NSFW site link directly to the image. Alternatively you may link a page (DeviantArt Image, Tumblr post, etc..) with a NSFW source (artist's gallery features NSFW) providing there is nothing NSFW directly visible on said page and after giving a warning that the source is NSFW.  As an extension to this Suggestive/Saucy pics are allowed only with warnings, following the NSFW Rule: No visible genitalia or intercourse, cropped and censored porn are also not allowed.




    No impersonation. 

    Do not pretend to be someone you are not. This includes, but is not limited to, other members of this community and prominent members of other communities. You can pretend to be your OC or a pony though.


    No spam. 

    We ask you to not spam the comment section and take up too much space unnecessarily. This includes huge empty spaces in your comments, posting the same comments over and over, excessive use of emojis, symbols, and anything of the sort. Sometimes something can shock, or anger you a lot, but still try to avoid getting carried away in your anger and posting angry walls of text with capslock.


    Stay on topic. 

    Keep comments relevant and related to the topic of the blog post you're commenting on. For off-topic chatting, or just banter, you can go to the Morning and Nightly Discussions. There is a new one posted every morning and night where you can find all sorts of topics being talked about and engage with other site guests more personally. We also have a Discord server which can be found here. Feel free to join and chat with us and other site guests!


    Threats of suicide are not allowed. 

    While the site likes to foster a helpful atmosphere, and people are always willing to help, it is not really an appropriate venue to post your outcries for help. Please find yourself a hotline if you need help.




    Regarding reporting.

    If you see something you believe to be against our site rules, please take a brief moment to flag it. When someone insults, or harasses you, just flag them and we will take care of the situation as soon as possible. Reporting comments that violate the rules help us tremendously and we greatly appreciate it!


    Formal warnings and bans. 

    When a site guest continuously breaks the rules, the moderation team will issue them a warning. If said guest continues to break rules and ignore the warnings they have received, a ban will be issued. Length of bans vary, depending upon severity of case and will be at the discretion of the moderators. Please do not try and evade a ban. Guests who are found to do this will have their bans lengthened including and up to a possible permanent ban from this site.


    Rules are subject to change to close loopholes! 

    If you have any complaints, issues, or would like to appeal a ban, please contact myself at [email protected]. I will try to answer any and all questions to the best of my ability.
