I NEED YOUR HELP, NERDFIGHTERIA!
In light of John’s recent video, he mentioned something about seeing “terrible things people say about [him and his work] on the internet”, and that inspired me to do something about it. I know that he is being faced with tremendous amounts of pressure and stress right now, and I just want to start something for him. I know I’ve tried this before with the ‪#‎StuffOnHeadsForJohnGreen‬ thing, and that went really well, so I want to give it a shot. If you could, post (or submit a picture to me or the wesupportjohngreen tumblr) a picture of you with a sign saying ‪#‎ISupportJohnGreen‬ or just simply giving a thumbs up, I’m going to compile them all into a video slideshow, to eventually post in hopes of him finding it. John has done so much for everyone out there, and I know he knows how supportive we are, but we could never repay him enough for the work he’s done. I’d love it if you helped me out on this!

vondell feelknower1993,
i don’t know. i’ve been participating in the nerdfighter community (and youtube as a whole) since 2007 and all i see now is “sinking ship” or “burning building”. i’m sure part of that is me being jaded but in light of recent events it sure feels accurate. in…

I think the burning building thing makes sense, and it’s kind of accurate in a way, but I think if we focus on putting out the fire, then we’ll make progress. I think part of the problem is that we’re still dealing with rape culture, it’s not just a matter of individuals wanting to hurt people. And it’s not just YouTube, I think this kind of abuse has probably been very common among celebrities and just society in general for a long time, and now is the time that people are starting to speak up about it and speak out against it, because culture is gradually changing, and people are becoming more aware of what’s happening and less tolerant of abuse. That’s my perspective, and I may be wrong, I don’t have information to back this up. Maybe that’s not exactly optimistic, because it does paint a much bleaker picture of what has been. But I do think things are going to get better, especially if we really do focus on putting the fire out.

John has so many Tumblr entrees l feel

nocturnaldirtpeople:

tohat it would be impossible for him to care about me
He has gone to the smallest African countries with the worst diseases. My problems entirely unimportant. I am some sad drunk 19-year-old that should have paid more attention in school so I could be a more useful human being. All
I have to apologize for is being a piece of shit, A terrible nerdfighter, The worst disappointment.

I don’t think it’s impossible for him to care about you. And I think everyone’s problems are important, even if they seem stupid compared to someone else’s, if they affect you in a big way then they’re important. And here’s an example of why I think John Green would care about your problems: recently I posted a FIFA video that he commentated in which he was talking about some things being really hard for some people that would seem easy to other people, and how he understands that - like it’s so hard for one person to just brush their teeth, or for John to put his college applications in the mailbox. The point is, you can’t compare one person’s struggle with someone else’s just by what the thing is - how it affects you is the important thing. You do matter, and your problems are important, and I think John Green would agree with me.

Nah, I think most people just call them Hank and John these days. If they introduced themselves as Mr. Green and Other Mr. Green, it would be different.

My YouTube feed is totally screwed up. YouTube doesn’t even remember which videos I’ve watched and which ones I haven’t. It shows videos in my subscription feed that I’ve already watched and leaves out videos that I haven’t seen yet.

I feel like people expect waaaaay too much from John and Hank green.

They’re good people, doing good things, chill.

Yeah. I think I expect too much from them sometimes.

I made a new "About" page!!! →

paperjohngreen:

Please go check it out if you’re a new follower :) Or an old follower! It has links and pictures and explanations and it’s really pretty (and it took me forever to do, so go check it out!) 

Nice! I love your blog.

I just love John’s commentary in this video. He really gets the idea that some things that are easy for most people can be the hardest thing in the world for someone.

I need some advice... →

fitz-simmonsshipper:

Okay, so this post will probably be very long and may contain excess detail and probably won’t have perfect grammar and may seem like a stupid and immature post to many people, but I really need some help. For those of you who have enough patience to read this and deal with my possible ignorance…

Hmm, that’s too bad. I don’t know what you can do exactly, but maybe I’ll take a shot at responding to your questions: 

  • Why is my mom acting so strange about YouTube lately? You can’t really know this unless you ask her specifically, but there are some possible reasons. Maybe she’s just really skeptical about anything that involves the internet and teens. And it makes sense to be cautious about it, because sometimes bad things happen and there are a lot of scams out there, and there have been a lot of abuse scandals that involve YouTube stars and teens. 
  • Is there anything I can do so she might stop being this way? I’m not sure, but you could try just asking her what she’s so concerned about. Don’t argue with her, don’t try to convince her that these people are trustworthy, just listen, and try to find out what the issue is and understand her perspective. 
  • Is there something I am missing? (like, are the vlogbrothers actually scammers, are any charity funds they do scams, is everyone on YouTube a scammer, etc…) Am I just being totally ignorant about YouTube and in reality everything on there is completely fake and I have it all wrong and all of my information is false? This is an important question to ask, because there are probably scammers on YouTube, but it’s not true that everyone on YouTube is a scam. I think I can be pretty certain that the Vlogbrothers are not a scam, because they’ve been on YouTube for 7 years, and they’ve revealed a lot about themselves and their values. It’s clear to me that they’re not just trying to make money for themselves. I also think that they are selective about the charities they get involved with, and they want to make sure that those charities are actually doing something good with their money.

isn’t it weird that we pay money to see other human beings?

Nerdfighteria

theknitwich:

I did it!  I was a late arrival to Nerdfighteria and was recently watching some Vlogbrothers videos; one video led to another, and I couldn’t help but feel like I was missing out on something.  That’s when I decided to start at video #1 and watch every. single. one.  There are currently 1,218 videos uploaded to the Vlogbrothers channel, and I finished with #1,218 today.  I am officially, without a doubt a Nerdfighter.  DFTBA!! :-D

Welcome!

elmonofuerte:

So, let’s throw this out there first: I have no sway other than my actions and the words I say. I can think grandiose ideas and try to live in a positive way, but that doesn’t change that my sphere of influence is small. That said: it is MY sphere of influence, I have control over my actions and…

I totally agree.
