Following from the Konami Code Thread…

The admins of Know Your Meme have left small secrets within the website. It is our job to find these secrets and post them on here.

- Post Theories
- Post Outcome

Current Easter Eggs:

Konami Code (notified by watcher)

In the homepage, Press (Arrow Keys)
↑↑↓↓←→←→, Then Type B and A. (consecutively)

Before pressing anything, a pop-up will appear saying:

“Wise you are, newbie. Welcome to round one”

Smiley Face :D (notified by MemeDude)

In the forums, go to any thread. Go down and click “post” with nothing in the body. A pop up will appear; close it by clicking X and a smiley face ( :D ) will appear.

Upload Image To No Meme

Skepticism towards this Easter Egg, but it is hidden almost as it is one.

Upload an image to the -Please Select selection in the image uploader, and it will join in the image stream without condemning with a meme.

Where The Hell Is Joanne?

In the 2007 season, Joanne (of KYM) was wearing a lab coat with her name on it.

A few episodes later, a boy with glasses appeared on there with the same labcoat.

Thread Errors

If posting in one thread faster than 30 seconds each will cause a Mr.Freeze icon to appear.

If a thread is closed / locked, a Skeletor icon will appear at the post section.

Redundant Advertising
The Coke-a-Cola nanodisk commercial appears on the top-left of EVERY article. Is this some kind of joke?

403 Guy

A mysterious error page that involves going to a restricted part of a site.

Current Theories:

Press Post without typing anything. Close the pop up. :D

I thought I noticed the smiley face first. Plagarism, Watcher?

Jan 16, 2010 at 11:18AM EST

Oh, no plagiarism. (I’m assuming)

But I’ll alter the post giving you recognition, MemeDude

Jan 16, 2010 at 12:44PM EST

I had no idea that he found it first. Give him teh credit.

Jan 16, 2010 at 12:45PM EST

Are there any more?

EDIT: Found one! Post in a thread, and then post again within 30 seconds. See what happens.

The default image for entries. Looks to be graffiti on riveted, rusted metal. Probably just a stock image.

How about the easter eggs and stuff in the videos? Aren’t there a few in those?

Jan 17, 2010 at 05:23PM EST

Ellie Rountree/Elspeth refers to furries as yiffers in the ORLY episode.

Have Chris or Brad ever made cameos in any episode?


Lets review old episodes. I’ll take season 3 and look for stuff.

Somebody borrowed Joanne’s lab coat in the reaction / piggyback episode.

Being a Lost fan makes spotting this stuff easier.

The Meme Elimination Game made a cameo in the “Where the Hell is Matt?” episode.

Animecello’s pic also appears in the Om Nom Nom video (bottom-left of Ellie):

Also, regarding KYM’s whiteboard, there are always random things written/drawn on it on each episode. Would that be considered an Easter Egg?

Jan 17, 2010 at 09:30PM EST

Maybe specific things that appear.

I think it would help if we all knew what an easter egg was defined as:

“A virtual Easter egg is an intentional hidden message, in-joke or feature in an object such as a movie, book, CD, DVD, computer program, web page or video game.”

I think it shows how great KYM is as a site that it has eggs maybe no one will ever pick up, but the programmers still put in the time and effort to do these little things.

My Meme Elimination Game thread (that got molested by spam, then deleted) is in the Where The Hell Is Matt episode

Jan 22, 2010 at 05:39PM EST

I found another (rare) one. When you update a meme entry and click on the ‘save and view entry’ button, and you’re lucky enough to have a slow computer or a lag on the site, you get a huge awesome smiley wallpaper, with the message: ‘brb, updating in progress’, or something like that.

Jan 27, 2010 at 01:38PM EST

I did but I printscreened it and overwrited it with something else. DOH!!! :(

Jan 27, 2010 at 02:08PM EST

I got the “brb. update in progress” wallpaper earlier today while I was submitting a forum comment. I should of screened it.

Jan 27, 2010 at 02:49PM EST

Are you guys talking about when the site ends up with this version of the Awesome Smiley with the “Update in Progress” thing somewhere on the screen? It isn’t actually triggered by anything or anyone other than the developers who temporarily put the site down to add new upgrades to the site (i.e. The four board forums we’re all using now).

Though, thinking about it, could this really be considered a KYM Easter Egg?

Jan 27, 2010 at 06:17PM EST

Maybe this thread should be called “Cool Things That’ We’ve Noticed, And Are A Part Of Why We Love KYM.”

Jan 27, 2010 at 07:03PM EST

another comment on “om nom nom nom” video. instead of playing it, move the red scrolling thing to seven seconds and u will see the words “cats: all your base are belong to us” and that weird feep guy.

Jan 27, 2010 at 07:06PM EST

I saw that, but it only appeared once and i never saw it again.

Jan 31, 2010 at 07:17PM EST

@Watcher -- Greg made us some sweet custom error pages… (not actually used!)
