    I'm not a fan of homestuck (that's not saying I hate it or anything), but it's just irritating seeing it everywhere on the forum. I don't hate it because it's popular, it just gets on my nerves that you can't seem to post anywhere without seeing people theming it or something. I had the same issue with MLP for much of last year on another forum, it was everywhere and it sort of aggravated me, even though I had no opinion of the series either way.

    The Homestuck fan base on here isn't over bearing but I just don't care for it either way.

    That's just kinda what happens when something is popular, it happened with My Little Pony, Legend of Korra, etc.

    If a fanbase isn't largely comprised of annoying brats, and if the thing they're a fan of isn't crappy, I don't see a reason to hate on the fanbase or the thing they like. I hate Call of Duty because it has a largely annoying fanbase and I find Call of Duty to be a pretty shitty game. Another example are, um, "The Hardcore Oldschool Pokemon fans", specifically the group who hate all new Pokemon solely due to nostalgia. I have a reason to be annoyed with that group, though I don't hate oldschool Pokemon.

    Granted I don't know much about the quality of the Homestuck fanbase, but it feels like a lot of people just hate it because it's really popular.
    That's exactly right. There's a bad side of every fandom, Homestuck just has a rather /large/ bad part of the fanbase. Just because Homestuck is popular doesn't mean it's bad, right? *applauds*

    I can't stand MLP, there's something very wrong with grown adults watching a children's show and obsessing over it to the extant that some bronies do.

    That strikes me as a very un @Neosquid;-like attitude.

    The only people I've met in person who like Homestuck are unfortunately the ones that don't ever get along with anybody and are very anti-social. Until they find out I like Homestuck too. I've been told by a few people I've been internet friends with for about 5 or 6 years that I'm probably one of the few nice fans that are over the age of about 15. That's cool they think that of me, but it worries me about how most of the thousands and thousands of Homestuck fans are a giant group of rage-prone shutaways.

    If you can't admit there's a bad part to your fandom then you're probably the bad side of the fandom.

    Btw, Meulin, boob week is fun if you actually participate in it. Over the past few years I never understood it, but this is my first time actually participating and I think it's funny. :p

    I just don't understand the fascination with privates of either gender, so no participating for me. :/ I don't like them and therefore don't want something revealing in my avatar, that's just the way I work, really. :P

    I meant the part about it being popular not meaning it's bad.

    I don't know anything about the Homestuck fandom, maybe it is actually annoying, I don't know.

    Anyone who thinks boob week is dumb shouldn't be allowed to participate in sexy guy week.

    I suppose whether you participate in boob week or not just depends on what kinda person you are, if you're comfortable with it or not. Nothing wrong with participating, nothing wrong with not participating.

    Good thing I participate in neither then, eh? ;3
