The Best and Worst Fandoms of the World
#21
Hm, well I haven't been a part of too many fandoms, bu from the ones I have:

Mario - My first fandom I was part of was a Mario one on some forums, and it was nice, and I thought it was a good fandom. Nice simple happy people open to discussing the many great ways of Mario games, and a nice time overall.

Gaming - Next I went to a general gaming community for all games, and I must say it wasn't the most pleasant experience, and it's kind of hurt my image of gamers. It was very argumentive, everything was strongly opinionated, and nice quiet chats were rare as they come. I don't plan on going back anytime soon, as that's not something I enjoy doing.

My Little Pony - And next I ventured to the My Little Pony fandom, where I've had a generally great time. The fans I've met tended to be nice and considerate, quiet and introverted, and very creative and artistic, and I've loved going through all the many songs, art, fics, etc. that the fandom's created. I can see myself sticking with this fandom for as long as I can.

And those are all the fandoms I've been with for a while. I've only just started devling into the Gravity Falls fandom, but I must say so far I am really liking it, and am excited to see where it goes from here on out. There's great creativity here as well, as I've already started saving pictures to a folder on my computer, the few fan songs to come out have been excellent, and in general the fans I've met seem like nice folk, tis nice ^^

I agree. I hate Secret Mountain Fort Awesome. I searched for a review, and this is what I found:
Latest Secret Mountain Fort Awesome review: This should get renewed for a second season and take crap like CatDog and Sidekick off the air.
like srsly?

So yeah, Gravity Falls is the best fandom, although some of it can be a little far fetched. But that's why we're here, right?

I can probably think of several more fandoms, but here are the ones that I can name off the top of my head.

Best:

Gravity Falls - For the most part, most Fallers are civilized, and, even with all of these conspiracy theories, is one of the smartest and least insane fandoms I've seen of any cartoon.

Nintendo (or, at least, the Mario, Kirby, and Super Smash Bros fandoms) - Their fans generally tend to be very creative, nice, and civilized, especially when compared to other video game fandoms. Also, from what I've seen, they're among the fandoms that are most accepting of female gamers.

Rock/Metal (particularly Punk, Hard Rock, and Alt-Rock) - Admittedly, a lot of them are pretty big music snobs, but they also tend to be well-mannered, hate sexism and sexual harassment, and progressive on most social issues (for example, some of the first supporters of gay marriage that I saw online were either Rock artists or Rock fans).

Fans of the Golden Age of American Animation (Looney Tunes, Tom and Jerry, etc.) - Not much bickering from what I've seen, and I've haven't seen any major flame wars between fans about what the best "classic cartoon" is.

Worst:

Beliebers - I was never a fan of Justin Bieber's music, but I never really started hating him until I found out he was a giant douche. The fact that so many of his fangirls keep trying to defend him for his constant bratty behavior with things like "He's still young" or "Boys will be boys" should speak for itself.

Association Football/Soccer - I'll admit that I'm a fan of Soccer, but boy do I hate most of its fans (particularly the European fans). Aside from the fact that the word 'Soccer' causes them to react in a way that makes it sound like you killed their whole family, they (from what I've read) have caused a lot of riots, and are also pretty racist.

Sonic the Hedgehog (at least the way the fandom was like during the mid-to-late-2000s) - I'm not sure how good or bad the fandom is now, but back in the mid-2000s and late-2000s, it was BAD. Constant bickering and flame wars within the fanbase, complaints about the voice acting for "not being as good as the voices from the Sonic Adventure games", and a boatload of porn with an amount that rivals that of Pokemon and My Little Pony Friendship is Magic.

Speaking of which, the Friendship is Magic fandom (a.k.a. bronies) is... an interesting mix.

Now, the good side of the fandom is among the best. This side is extremely creative, talented and nice. They have also done a lot of charitable efforts, like this, for example. They also like seeing people defy traditional gender roles.

The bad side, on the other hand, is one of the worst. This side has a LOT of porn, and they attack people who don't like the show. There's also bickering and flame wars, and this even extends to the good side on occasion, too. They also say several misogynistic things (such as rape jokes, "get back in the kitchen" jokes, and "lol must be that time of the month" jokes), and while this is common in several fandoms, the MLP fandom is the fandom in which this annoys me the most.

We bronies will technically kick anyones ass on the internet who insults mlp fim. However the whole "pony shipping" side of the fandom can get really annoying sometimes.
I find it kind of ironic that half of the fandom disliked mlp gim but then got into it after watching just one episode.

Insult one, gets killed by an army.

I like how the gravity falls fandom dont really go on full rage to the people who dislike this show. They try to be witty and wise and ask countless questions to why the hater hates Gravity Falls. But their theories CAN get annoying sometimes.
*cough* *cough* Lebam *cough* *cough* theory.

The ben ten fandom is just plain annoying. Espicially the omniverse fandom. Nuff said.

I like how the DW fandom is always creative and basically treats the show as if it were a god itself.
And now for a history lesson!!!

Throughout history, stickers have been the backbone of many great civilizations. The Ancient Greeks even used leaches for stickers! The more stickers you have, the cooler you were! The Ancient Aztecs chest skull was the modern equivalent of today's: "Orange You Happy Mon?"

ok okay gauge take a TC Casell.

Best (In my opinion): Gravity Falls.

Almost all Fallers i can relate to, and like Val(?) said: "Fallers don't get mad when someone says they hate gf, we just ask them why they don't a million times."

Fallers are smart about what they discuss.

WORST:

Adventure Time fans (Shippers side.)

The Adventure Time shippers are really annoying with they're constant: Fiona and cake meet Finn and Jake and they makeout and live forever in eachothers arms.

Face it guys. They'll never meet.

There are just to many ships in that fandom... TOO. MANY.

Sure, I'll take credit for the quote.
Hm, I like the AT shipping, but I keep universes separate. ^.^
