Archives[edit]

PLEASE READ: To keep this article from being deleted again in line with Wikipedia policies and guidelines please follow the guidelines, outlined below, as established by the Current State Section Proposal:

  • PLEASE DO NOT ADD ANY FORUM HISTORY INFORMATION TO THIS ARTICLE (UNLESS THE FORUMS ARE SHUT DOWN PERMANENTLY) The fact of the forums' existence is noted, what goes on there is, by consensus, not encyclopaedic.
  • PLEASE KEEP ADDITIONAL YTMND FADS INFORMATION ON THE YTMND WIKI
  • PLEASE KEEP ADDITIONAL GENERAL YTMND HISTORY INFORMATION SHORT. ONLY ONE OR TWO SENTENCES PER MAJOR INCIDENT and ensure that you cite the reliable secondary sources for each individual incident.

The reason for this is because by consensus excessively detailed information about the history, fads or the forums of YTMND is not considered encyclopaedic. We should be able to convey the interesting history of YTMND in a concise manner. However, if the history section begins to get too large it might warrant it's own article. Note that this is all in accordance with the Current State Section Proposal as previously discussed. Thanks!

Some woman seems to be threaten legal action against YTMND. Why isn't that mentioned?[edit]

If anyone has been to YTMND lately, they should know that alot users there have been mocking a women who has sent a phone message to the creator (Max) about how she is going to sue him if he doesn't take some stuff of his site. I don't know, somebody apparently made a YTMND featuring an image of her daughter and that is what cause the women to contact Max. Shouldn't this be mentioned in the "Conflicts" section? 108.56.164.232 (talk) 01:17, 3 April 2010 (UTC)

Yiddish Cup - What the hell is it?[edit]

When Eric Bauman said "You must be out of your Yiddish Cup" and he certainly didn't mean 'You must be out of your dramatic-readong-fad-ytmnd' so I went to Wikipedia, which conveniently redirected me to the ytmnd wiki. Shouldn't it redirect to something on euro-jew culture or something? Or did E-baum just through that phrase together? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.235.186.51 (talk) 14:43, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

  • The "cup" is really a Yiddish word קאָפּ kop, cognate to German Kopf, meaning "head". To be out of one's yiddishe kop means to be out of one's mind. (source: Positive Anymore) But if we can find corroborating sources that are more reliable, I agree that yiddishe kop (reason) and goyishe kop (lack of reason) merit a mention at least in an article about Yiddish culture. --Damian Yerrick (talk | stalk) 20:34, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

PTKFGS[edit]

Why does searching for 'PTKFGS' bring me to this article and then not explain it? 75.68.138.138 (talk) 03:43, 14 June 2010 (UTC)

More than likely, PTKFGS was previously mentioned in the article but then removed for failing WP:V: not having been mentioned in any sources outside of the YTMND community. --Damian Yerrick (talk | stalk) 03:02, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

original line[edit]

The article should at least explain what the cryptic line meant in context of the film. Will leave the same note at the Finding Forrester article. DavidOaks (talk) 18:11, 10 September 2010 (UTC)

Decline?[edit]

Though much has been said about the so-called "decline" of YTMND, upon looking at the site's Alexa rating in comparison to those of other popular humor sites during mid-2000s such as Albino Blacksheep, Homestar Runner, I-Mockery (though not Something Awful and definitely not 4chan), the site has not declined as much. Also, Encyclopedia Dramatica.ch's Alexa rating is very close to that of YTMND, yet nothing has been said of the "decline" of that site. Furthermore, dozens of YTMNDs are still made every day, and dozens of new users join YTMND every day. This "decline" is subjective, as YTMND has always been an obscure site, and still is. --JohnnyLurg (talk) 13:16, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

I think it's been a year or so since I saw anyone post a YTMND link on any of the forums or other media I use, whereas YTMND used to be part of my everyday life living in the memescape. I don't have any facts to back it up but just in my own experience the decline seems to be very real. How is their Alex rating these days? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 167.230.96.11 (talk) 17:37, 23 October 2015 (UTC)
