|August 24, 2006|
On August 24, 2006, the International Astronomical Union came to a decision redefining the term "planet" as well as adding a few new terms such as "dwarf-planet". Among the most controversial decisions was to remove planet status from Pluto, reclassifying it as a "dwarf-planet". Soon after the annoucement, pluto sites began to pop up.
Most of these sites unfortunately were NARV-styled sites, with countless emo, sad music, and "fail at life" sites. Though the fad spawned many sites during the days after the annoucement, most of them failed to get attention on ytmnd.
Pluto: YTMND user
There is also a YTMND user by the name of pluto, whose sites are mostly pictures of the dwarf planet crudely drawn on in MSPaint with some kind of bizarre mumbling. He leaves comments begging users to help him get PLANIT STATUS back. Some suspect he is an alt of an FPA member, but this has never been confirmed. He started the account in August of 2006, then disappeared over the winter, but returned in the spring like a beautiful flower, making a site asking for MOD STATIS.
