Here's a reference for the The Adam Carolla Show.[1] I don't know if anything interesting was said during the episode, because a subscription is required to listen to the show (which I don't have), so I'm just dumping the reference here. -- (talk) 11:54, 20 July 2013 (UTC)

Removed from the article[edit]

I've removed the following from the article with this edit.


Below are parts of the article prior to it's deletion in 2009 that have still to be updated.

Shay Carl, is an American Internet personality, known as a comedian for his entertaining videos on YouTube. Youtube is a popular video sharing site, which gets millions of hits everyday, Shay is just one of the many YouTuber's. Shay is a well known figure on youtube and in fact is one of the most-subscribed comedian channels. Currently he holds the #30 most subscribed comedians, all time. With over 100 videos and over 70,000 subscribers to his channel. The videos which he produces are filled with laughs and are enjoyed by many ages. Shay resides in California with his wife and four children.

Before YouTube 

Before posting his videos on YouTube, Shay had installed granite for a living.

Getting Involved in YouTube and the Beginning of Videos 

Certain events in Shay's life has influenced him over to YouTube and the aspect of video making. In the year of 2008, a good friend of Shay said to him "You have got to get your comedy out there". [1] Shay questioned himself with the ideas of: How to get his comedy out to viewers. After this, 3 months later Shay got a job at Z103 and than this lead to the start of making videos on YouTube. Shay was now not just trying to have a good time but make people notice his videos and to support him.

In the Summer of 2007, Shay Carl started to make videos on YouTube just for a "good time". His first video was released on August 16, 2008 the video was called "Fun with Helium and Passing Out", [2] though this was not his so called "big break", he did later get many more views on the video.

Becoming Popular on YouTube 

Philip DeFranco, known as sXePhil was a key part in the success and popularity of Shay. Philip DeFranco is a well known news reporter, known for being involved with entertainment news, politics, tech, and even pop culture. When Phil noticed a video of Shay's, he enjoyed it, this resulted in a shout out toward Shay's channel. During this time Phil was one of the top most subscribed YouTuber's but still is to this day. The shout out resulted in a rise in subscribers and video views, but also in a form of relationship between Shay and Phil. Their friendship has grown ever since and they even refer to each other as "best friend's".

Other than his friendship with Phil, Shay has grown relationships with many other famous YouTuber's and has made many online friends, including Charles Trippy of CTFxC. Today, Shay is a YouTube partner and is also makes revenue from being a part of the Google Ad-Share Program. Besides making videos for his own channel, Shay can be seen in many collaboration videos but also on many other sites. One such site is BlogTV, which is a live broadcasting site where Shay broadcasts and many other YouTuber's broadcast as well. Shay's daughter Babytard was featured on the front cover of the James Blunt album Some Kind of Trouble released on 8th November 2011. [3]

By the way, I don't think there's anything relevant in there that's not already in the article. -- (talk) 04:54, 19 July 2013 (UTC)

Request For Redirect(s)[edit]

While this article is not semi-protected itself, my request is related to a page that is in essence semi-protected, because as an IP editor I'm unable to edit it. I would like the previously deletedSHAY

ShayCarl to redirect to this article. That's the request. As a side note, several other previously deleted pages exist that could also be forwarded to this article because they are about Shay Carl or his "ShayTards" YouTube channel, namely Shay Butler, Shay butler, Shaycarl, Shay carl, SHAYTARDS, Shaytards, ShayTards and Shay Tards. -- (talk) 15:18, 19 July 2013 (UTC)
Not done for now: So many redirects doesn't seem like a good idea. -- TOW  11:42, 23 July 2013 (UTC)
I clearly wrote "I would like the previously deleted ShayCarl to redirect to this article. That's the request." and then continued "As a side note, [...]" Again, my request is about just one redirect. -- (talk) 11:55, 23 July 2013 (UTC)
Done already by another user. -- TOW  13:50, 23 July 2013 (UTC)
(edit conflict) Partly done: I've added all the redirects I can as Redirects are cheap. Those I haven't added (redlinked above) have been salted, ie prevented from re-creation by non-administrators. Following's logic, I've changed this edit semi-protected request to an edit protected request to solicit admin attention. Adrian J. Hunter(talkcontribs) 13:53, 23 July 2013 (UTC)
Done. Having the redirects can't hurt now that the article seems set to stick around. — Mr. Stradivarius ♪ talk ♪ 12:24, 24 July 2013 (UTC)

The narrative, coverage, cites are all within parameters. EBY (talk) 18:35, 26 July 2013 (UTC)


Correction. "BroTard" is Daxton, not Daxon. RE: Video "The Happiest State of Human Existance" timestamp 8:18.

'Brotards' name is Daxton Charles Butler. Sanders is NOT correct

(I can prove this by looking 45:00 minutes into the vlog about the baby's birth and the card above his head says 'SANDERS').

  • No, Sanders is incorrect because at 27:08 minutes into the vlog, Princesstard continuously says 'Daxy', and at 39:00 you can hear Colette says "It's baby Daxton" in the background. Sanders is most likely the Doctors name.*— Preceding unsigned comment added by Jessegirl147 (talkcontribs) 03:31, 27 October 2013 (UTC)
PT does constantly say Daxon/Daxton ,...... But this could be some sort of stunt ? ..... -
I'd rather wait till they actually announce it. →Davey2010→→Talk to me!→ 21:17, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
      • on one of the vlogs at 8:18 there is a chart on the wall that says "baby: Daxton" check @brotardbutler5 on instagram for the picture or you can look for the vlog. They do say the name many times and sanders is the doctor's name.*** — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:17, 30 October 2013 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

Well, it's been a long while! Sometime after the original article was removed I took it upon myself to contact an admin to ask if the previous article could be retrieved and moved into my user space. After working on it for a while, I never finished it, and after some time of it sitting untouched, it was noticed by others who picked up where I left off to turn it into the great article that it is today. I want to say thank you to those who helped finish the bulk of the article, and to those who continue to maintain it today. --Aaron McHale (talk) 22:35, 7 April 2014 (UTC);

Edit summary[edit]

This is the edit summary for this edit. "Currently" lacks precision. "Shay" is not how the rest of the article refers to Butler, so for consistency that would need to be Butler. That he has "daily vlogs on the SHAYTARDS and ShayLoss channels" is already in the article. The "Vlogumentary" is also already mentioned, in the lead no less. That he "said in October 2014 that he would like to do less, but create bigger projects" is not notable enough: it is an excessive amount of intricate detail that only interests a specific audience. If you have a reliable, third-party source that mentions his "book", it could be added - although, who isn't working on a book these days; maybe wait until he actually releases something. -- (talk) 14:49, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

Categories "Shay Carl" added to: American Mormon missionaries; 20th-century Mormon missionaries; Mormon missionaries in Barbados; Mormon missionaries in Trinidad and Tobago; Mormon missionaries in Guyana.[edit]

I am wondering why Shay Carl was just added to the following categories:

  • American Mormon missionaries;
  • 20th-century Mormon missionaries;
  • Mormon missionaries in Barbados;
  • Mormon missionaries in Trinidad and Tobago;
  • Mormon missionaries in Guyana ?

When there is no clear reason why Shay Carl should have been added to these categories as Shay Carl completed his missionary work in Barbados, Trinidad and Tobago, and Guyana approximately 15 - 18 years ago. Peppypoach (talk) 12:54, 5 January 2015 (UTC)

Those categories are not "is currently" - they are reflective of the subject as a whole(you know, having been a mormon missionary in the 20th century 15-18 years ago) -- TRPoD aka The Red Pen of Doom 01:16, 6 January 2015 (UTC)

Controversy/No longer active?[edit]

I am not sure if this applies to his other projects, but Shay Carl announced that he was going inactive on his Vlog, due to some controversy. He himself acknowledged drinking issues. In addition, an adult cam model (as I read it), has posted messages he sent her that were of sexual nature, and from what I read, the authenticity of these messages has been verified. Should any of this be mentioned in the article? Cr@$h3d@t@t@1k t0 m3 19:42, 14 February 2017 (UTC)

If you can find a third party source and don't violate BLP then sure your can.--Dcheagletalkcontribs 22:17, 14 February 2017 (UTC) and Cr@$h3d@t@t@1k t0 m3 22:22, 14 February 2017 (UTC)

I added this to the article. I did my best to adhere to BLP, but if anything is wrong, or needs to be re-written, feel free to change it. Cr@$h3d@t@t@1k t0 m3 16:13, 15 February 2017 (UTC)

Aria Nina, whose posts started the whole "shaycarl sex scandal," has posted two other claims: (1) that she and shaycarl had sex and (2) that she has two videos of shaycarl masterbating (presumably in an online video chat)... \

And there have been chats between shaycarl and Aria in which they discuss having sex together in graphic language... — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:04, 11 February 2018 (UTC)
