The Gabbly Gang

Jump to: navigation, search

The Gabbly Gang are ytmnders that connect and chat on the free internet service, Gabbly. While the use of Gabbly has been used in the early years of YTMND, the first post by user, King-a-Ling, it has seen a resurgence in use by frequent users and members of the Victory Alliance. To signal the start of a Gabbly chat, or a "Gabble" a user posts what is known as a Gabbly Alert site, typically a random gif or picture set to a random audio file. Gabbly Alerts are usually dumping grounds for sites that users would typically not post otherwise. Examples of Gabbly Alerts can be seen here, [1], [2] and the original by TuRtLeS[3]. Gabbly Alerts are also usually higher scoring sites, due to the fiving of members of the Gabbly Gang.


While, unlike the FPA and Victory Alliance, there is no official roster of The Gabbly Gang, however some users would like that to change. A membership system is, however unlikely due to the nature of the posting of Gabbly Alerts that are freely viewable by all users. Member GordonFremen has stated that, "The 'Gabbly Gang' is more of an idea than a real organization. The idea of a gang is more powerful than whatever happens to be the gang's current roster." However, with the emergence of forced fads like ACTMND, Hookerboots, and Fag Mattress, the Gabbly Gang is becoming tighter knit and more organized, with the idea of a new organization of YTMNDers becoming a reality.


The idea of the Gabbly Gang began with Flavius and GordonFremen, during one of the first chats they had on Gabbly. Some random kid wandered into their chat and had no clue where he was. He asked what YTMND was, to which Flavius replied, "It's the largest street gang in North America." Gordon liked the idea, so he decided to make a site about it using a clip from the classic 1979 film The Warriors. They sat in Gabbly for a few hours and collected names/avatars for a site which Gordon updated for a few days. Gordon also included the "original membership" of the gang in a site he made for TOURNAMENTMND2 - they're all sitting on kepledon's back, because he was Gabbly before there was any idea of a gang at all.
