That’s a good point, we may want to wait and see how much reaction there actually is. There’s no reason it can’t have both a section in the YouTube article and an article of its own (some existing articles do things like this), but you’re right, there might not be enough content.

I love YTPMVs, seriously, they’re like crack
I’m never on AIM, but I do respond to wall posts and PMs and such.

I like to try to associate people with tropes. Here’s the one I chose for myself.
This thread, from this page onward, is my crown jewel, especially from here onward (EXCEPT PAGE 35, IF YOU VALUE YOUR SANITY PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD SKIP PAGE 35).
Since people have been asking a lot about the fruit salad images, here’s an explanation: usually when people want to respond to a troll, but don’t want to give a serious response (since that would just be feeding it), they’ll post a stock photo of someone eating fruit salad instead. The point of it is to be weird and confusing; a confused troll is a defeated troll.
My thoughts on Internet censorship: “The Internet is a free frontier; a canvas upon which the world can paint its culture. We can explore and develop knowledge, share thoughts and ideas, catalogue just about anything, provide and consume entertainment and information, and communicate at virtually unrivaled speeds. The Internet is simultaneously the most beautiful and most grotesque thing on the planet. I think unregulated access to the Internet should become a human right. The Internet represents ultimate freedom, because anyone with Internet access can do as they please as long as they have no malicious intentions against the freedom of anyone else. Because of this, there is absolutely no place nor full justification for government regulation on the Internet.”
I don’t know who to choose for best pony anymore. Applejack is pretty great, but so is Rarity! What do I do?

Also, if the article gets started but some time in the next few days I find I can contribute to it, I’ll request editorship and provide what I can. The video gallery for it will be easy to fill, but getting images for the article will be a bit trickier. I also have no idea how to write about controversy in a neutral way.
A lot of you probably heard about this, or watched this (it just ended a few minutes ago as I type this). The award show had good and bad aspects, but overall was kind of sloppy, and the backlash on Twitter and probably on other sites has been big. This is definitely worth cataloguing and I think the article will be pretty interesting. There’s a lot to be covered -- hopefully a recording of the live stream will remain up so that it can be front & center in the article. I’m not sure I’ll have time to...
That’s considerably more work. I’ll consider it, but I may not have time, and I currently don’t know how to structure a Person article; I’d have to read some others to get a better understanding. If someone else is more ready and willing to start it, they should definitely do so, and I could help them with the section on last night’s event.
I didn’t know we had a person entry for her. I’ll see if I can put something together for it, and I’ll request editorship. Thanks! Even if this hadn’t been notable enough even for that, I thought it was still worth drawing to KYM’s attention.
Oh yeah, my thoughts were along similar lines; probably not an article-worthy event, and since it only just happened yesterday it’s ambiguous as to how notable it should be considered at all, but I was thinking it might have potential for a subsection on the MLP article. Although that article is getting pretty full now, so maybe the EqG article is a better place for it -- the only reasonable way I could see to put it in the main MLP article is if the section about Faust interacting with /co/ was changed...
One guy succeeded for a short while; he cracked her initial tripcode and made a few troll posts with it. We’re pretty sure it wasn’t actually her that posted “I like getting raped by horses.” Her first tripcode was apparently quite easy to crack; “tripcode” is as secure of a tripcode as “password” is for a password.
Oh, one last thing before I go for a while: while the stickied threads were ongoing, /mlp/‘s front page was changed to have a Ron Paul "IT’S HAPPENING" gif on top, and dramatic orchestral music playing. Also, here’s one small screencap from the first thread. I’ll have some more complete screencaps for you guys later tonight or maybe tomorrow.
Last night, on 4chan’s /mlp/ board, someone posted a thread that started off with a screencap of a picture tweeted by Lauren Faust of the new Equestria Girls merchandise -- to which she was reacting negatively. This sparked some discussion, including someone posting a drawing of Ms. Faust as The Hulk. She tweeted the picture shortly afterwards, causing people in the thread to realize that she must be lurking there. A short while later, she posted in the thread revealing that she had in fact been reading...
I know nothing about this, but it’s making me laugh. Thanks man! Good luck with the research.
“Don’t Forget: You’re Here Forever” is also popularly associated with 4chan. Katawa Shoujo General on /vg/ has produced several variants of the “Do It For Her” image using photos of the cast. If you want, once the article is written I could add a section in it for the above information, obviously with a bit more formality to it.
KYM articles are arguably formal enough to be considered academic, though it’s probably best to stick with the confirmed ones.
Didn’t see last years awards until now. No recognition at all for Lindsey Stirling? Disappointing. Let’s change that this year.We already have an article on her.Here’s her channel. Her Legend of Zelda, Skyrim, Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, and Phantom of the Opera covers are excellent. On a side note, she’s hot too.
I thought Brad would be a KYM Admin simulator.

Yup, in fact I got editorship on it. I’ll be working on it soon, once I’ve dealt with my finals.
That would be awesome, thanks very much. I’ll let you know if I get editorship. Right now I’m still waiting. I don’t know if Don and Brad just haven’t logged in since I requested editorship, or if they just refused the request, since there’s no notification for a request refusal.
Alright, I think I have everything I need, and I got some more info as well. Looks like there were also many YouTube videos taken down by false copyright claim (seriously, YouTube needs to fix their system for that), which was an attack organized on Twitter using the hashtag #WarOnBronies and was started by some of the GNAA’s notable members. I also found a thread about someone who was physically assaulted in public by someone wearing blackface and a GNAA shirt. I would kill for editorship now....
I have some information regarding the GNAA and would like editorship on the article so I can add a section for it, but I wanted to discuss it here. I’ve already requested editorship. Recently on /mlp/ there were several threads regarding supposed attacks by the GNAA. Some had substantial evidence but others lacked that, so it’s unclear whether they were legitimate, or simply fear-mongering by the GNAA themselves. There were two noteworthy attacks: firstly, the BronyState livestream of the most recent My...
That’s not what I mean. I’m fine with it being a Submission for now, but the problem is the article has been completely untouched for months. No examples added, no comments made, nothing; and the fact that the two Top Comments were made on an earlier version of the article is a testament to this. Basically it just needs some attention.
