you seem really awesome, nice to meet you.
Hi! So I found my way to the Vlogbrothers not too long ago through Tumblr, and since then I've almost worked my way through every video (I still have 2007 to go). But! I don't have a single nerdfighter friend. And a nerdfighter without a nerdfighter friend... that doesn't even seem like a real thing.

Mostly I'm an English nerd, I love Harry Potter and pretty much all (good) YA fiction and classic literature. I love poetry as well. I'm also pretty obsessed with movies and I love talking about them with people.

Yeeeeah.

Welcome to the club Taylor! 

speaking of YA fiction, have you read any of John's books yet?

Definitely!  I actually read An Abundance of Katherines like four years ago before I had any idea who John was.  Then over the past month I've read Looking for Alaska and Paper Towns.  I probably wouldn't have gotten so excited about Vlogbrothers if John hadn't been an author :)
welcome TaylorAnn!  point of clarification do you have roughly 2007 videos to watch, or or are you backtracking to '07 (year one of brotherhood 2.0?)
Hey everyone, I'm new to the website, but I knew about the Vlogbrothers since around February, I discovered them through awesome people like Wheezy Waiter and Charlieissocoollike. I'm currently on a journey through all of their videos from beginning to end and I'm slowly making my way forward :) My favourite comic is Scott Pilgrim and my favourite movies are Scott Pilgrim, Inglourious Basterds, X-Men: First Class, Planet of the Apes (1968... not Tim Burton's ;]), Inception and a few others. It is one of my goals to become fluent in German as I am currently learning it at GCSE and wish to develop my knowledge in it. I want to go into film when I'm older. I knew I was a Nerdfighter as soon as I started watching their videos and I promise to never to forget to be awesome!!! Plus I'm British. yey.
not that i'm complaining, but what is it about nerdfighteria that attracts so many Brits?
I think its because a high percentage of the UK's population is made of awesome. :)
could be, could be.  trending or not, meeting you is (and sorry if you haven't gotten here yet) fantastically jokes.

I might be wrong... so tell me if I am, but does jokes mean cool? :P

yes and no.  yes it replaces the word cool meaning 'great/fun/funny/fantastic/nifty,' and when John Green first proposed using it, he had (jokingly) suggested it could replace it when talking about temperature, but the point from the beginning wasn't just to have an inside joke (pun intended) but to actually be subversive, to take something intended as an insult and make it awesome.  it also works well in this way for nerd(fighters) as we usually aren't cool meaning popular.

Hey nerdfighters! I was just introduced to John and Hank a month or two ago and am now watching their videos in roughly-reverse-chronological order. I'm a pretty heavily-computer/math/science-nerdy type guy, but I'm also a huge softie. I'm hoping Nerdfighteria is the place for me, but I'm fairly sure it is. If you're around Denver and have too much spare time, so do I!
