Trivia: Yogscast

  • Trivia specific to Area 11
  • Trivia specific to Hat Films.
  • Trivia specific to Zoey Proasheck
  • Trivia specific to Sips
  • Trivia from the Minecraft series

  • Artist Disillusionment: Hannah Rutherford has admitted to being fed up of Tumblr, in part due to fans that deem her content problematic without watching it and in part due to some incredibly warped fanfiction which she understandably wasn't amused by.
  • Big Name Fan: A freelance editor and Yognaut called Ryan Horton, known as YorkieRaz, has made a couple of montage videos that the Yogscast in general went on to use. He was even commissioned to make one for Strippin after he was piled up with work. When he donated in the 2014 livestreams, he got a Shout-Out from Lewis, Simon and Strippin for all his hard work.
  • Colbert Bump: They gave a small one to Garry's Mod thanks to its inclusion in their 2013 Christmas Humble Bundle.
  • Creator Backlash: The Yogscast, in particular Lewis, do not seem terribly fond of the time that Gamechap and Bertie were members, having publicly mocked them many times in livestreams, as well as on social media.
  • Defictionalization: It was a running joke for a while that the Yogscast were based in an office called Yog Towers. They've since gotten an actual office, which they've taken to calling Yog Towers.
  • Fan Nickname:
    • A lot due to infinite cases of Alcohol-Induced Idiocy.
      • Duncan picked up the nickname Druncan (also spelled Drunkan) during the 2012 livestream.
      • Nearly everyone has a 'gin rage' related nickname actually. Sparkles* admitted to being called Drinkles (owing to him coming in to part of the livestream extremely drunk) and during the 27th Dec livestream, they thought up Brewis Ginly for Lewis. Strippin is Sippin, Simon is Honeybrew, Sjin is Tsjipsy, Zoey has her fake last name changed to Drunkasheck, Martyn becomes Martyni (even though that isn't what he drinks) and so on.
  • Fandom Nickname: Fans of the Yogs are called "Yognau(gh)ts", although the spelling of the term varies. It depends on whether you prefer Simon or Lewis.
  • Old Shame: Lewis has publicly voiced his disapproval of the Yogscast's prior involvement with Game Chap, openly bashing them in the 2014 livestreams.
  • Promoted Fanboy:
    • Despite being a general gaming channel, the Yogscast (or at least Lewis and Simon) are almost universally known as the Minecraft channel note : Notch, the creator of Minecraft, frequently tweets about the Yogscast's Minecraft videos, and at GamesCon 2011 they officially represented Minecraft. Simon even got to wear Notch's hat! They've also gotten to play competitive Team Fortress 2 matches with Notch for charity.
    • On the reverse side of it, Strippin, In The Little Wood and William Strife were all fans of the Yogscast before joining.
  • Role Ending Misdemeanor:
    • Tinman, one of the old admins of the site, was eventually fired for rerouting ad revenue on their website.
    • Peva was fired after an internal falling out.
    • Game Chap and his friend Bertie were eventually recruited into the Yogscast, but were removed after a very rude response to some relatively mild criticism on the subreddit. Unlike the first two, they've been able to keep some sort of web presence since their removal.
  • Schedule Slip: In regards to Simon and Lewis' Magicka co-op with TotalBiscuit; the three had increasingly busy schedules starting after Part 8, and Part 14, a 40+ minute episode, had audio issues that TotalBiscuit still hadn't edited out yet when it was finally released two months after recording.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Duncan and Sjin managed to sneak into Sherlock as extras, but the scene they were in was cut out.
    • The gang did have a game in development called Yogventures, but production eventually fell through.
  • The Wiki Rule: Here. The Wiki is just as informal as TV Tropes, fittingly enough.
  • Why The Fandom Cant Have Nice Things:
    • The comments on Rythian's channel, as well as the BlueXephos channel, were turned off in mid-2013 due to a host of people trying to scam Yognauts out of money, plus unnecessary spam. They were eventually turned back on.
    • Kim Richards has admitted that due to increasing levels of irrational hatred and harassment, she has stopped reading the comments section as much as she used to. Given the growing number of racist comments and a small but annoyingly vocal group of fans calling for her to be fired from her job because they don't like her, one can hardly blame her.
    • DaveChaos left Tumblr because he was getting overwhelmed with irrational fandom behaviour.
