Approximately 3 weeks ago, Tumblr user Rohan Salmond AKA robofillet posted a series of photos of himself seductively holding knitting needles and yarn with the caption “yes im a boy / yes i knit things.” As of today, this post has more than 88k notes Tumblr user Gokuma suggested on December 30th that he should be a DC comic book villain and Tumblr exploded KYMdb – The Knitter

Does anyone have more information on this? It sounds like an event entry to me.
thanks !!! i’ll add you as an editor in a few min :)
damn crazy moon, just finished writing that section. I’ll fuse what you wrote into it!
@Brad adding in the wikipedia section now!
awesome platus, thanks!
On January 11th, internet activist, political organizer and computer programmer Aaron Swartz killed himself. He helped write RSS 1.0 at 14 years old. He later helped build Infogami, a platform that hosts Open Library sites, which merged with Reddit in November 2005. After they were bought by Conde Nast, he worked for Wired for a short time. In 9/2007, he launched the web site creation platform Jottit and went on to join Harvard’s Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics through 2010 and 2011. Also in 2010, he...
Alright, here’s the game plan: there’s already mention of Aaron Swartz’ recent death in the Reddit entry but let’s try to put together a full Person entry for him today. To add a little challenge, let’s see if we can do it in three hours. Main focus: Online History Legal Issues Post your research here and I’ll add you as an editor to the entry: KYMdb – Aaron Swartz!
KYM only documents already existing memes. Try submitting it to someplace like 4chan or reddit.

that’s weird and probably a bug -- do you have hover zoom installed on your browser?
I messaged the person who sent us the survey and asked for more info, but they’re probably off for the holiday. I will let everyone know when I find out~
Here is the survey link! A group of researchers at the University of Duisburg-Essen in Germany are doing an anonymous online study on why people spread photos online. I just finished taking it and it took about 15 minutes to complete. I don’t think there’s an age limitation but the bigger samples are, the better, so I just thought I’d share the link here
This is a really good question. I’m gonna give it a think and get back to this thread.
Quantum Meme postedHowever, this makes it even better to the extent where we can just delete ourselves and come back to life in approximately two clicks, which is a bit silly, as it could be used as some kind of trolling tactic, while also being some kind of exit doorway out of KYM that you can always just re-enter if you change your mind. Compare it to Facebook, which lets users deac and reac at will: There is NO bigger drama queen move then getting into a fight, deactivating and then coming back a few...
All of the admins can reactivate, if mods had the power IMO, it’d be easier for people to be like WAHHH IM LEAVING DELETE MY ACCOUNT and a few days later change their mind about it. I am the person that deactivates most of the accounts that ask for deletion through the contact form. If a user that has a lot of activity asks for deletion, I try to talk to them about it to save the trouble of deacs/reacs because people often do it out of anger or something silly. I don’t think it’s a power mods need,...
I am really stoked to see all the awesome presents in here already guys :) If you run into any troubles, let me know here asap. After 4 PM EST today I probably wont be on again until tomorrow afternoon though!
Chris has been on the site since forever. I remember in my early days, he would always be in IRC being cool and liking rap music and butts. Now he still likes the same things and also studies music theory or so I hope because that’s what I’m typing right now. Please, ask him a ton of questions!
