Causes for popularity
A main reason for him being popular is because he has about 2.3 million files from PBS KIDS, PBS KIDS ISLAND, WTTW, Wyoming PBS, WUFT, KCET, Wisconsin Public Television, WFYI, Lakeshore PBS, WYCC, Milwaukee PBS, WGN, WMAQ, Guam PBS, Vermont PBS, Maine PBS, Hawaii PBS, Alaska PBS, Panhandle PBS, Rocky Mountains PBS, PBS KIDS Bookworm Bunch, Rhode Island PBS, Nine PBS, PBS KIDS GO!, Yahoo, Bing, Cartoon Studio, PBS KIDS PLAY!, PBS, Kart Kingdom, Animal Jam, Club Penguin, Club Penguin Rewritten, Penguin Chat, Penguin Chat 3, Youtube, Firefox, Google, Poptropica, Kmart, Vintage penguin, Minecraft, Prankster Planet, Target, Amazon, Ebay, Walmart, a crazy amount of apps and other stuff, etc. A lot of them are screen shots from PBS KIDS though, but a rising amount is coming from The Wayback Machine. Another reason he is very popular is because he is very nice and makes many friends.
Gawain's first comment on the blog was "Pbs kids go", he was in a old account also, the reason he only said "pbs kids go" and nothing else for a few days because at one time, he didn't even know how to type and spell well.
He has found (And helped find) more than 12 secret codes, three by himself (One of the three with his grandmother), another secret code with elks447 and Yumms567, and more than 9 duet and trio. These include the codes Lakesand, Basinlong, Pbsvan, Kspsapple, Kttzpeggy, Lpbgator, etc, not including the about 100 other unreleased items he found or found them before they were released. He also has watched and played PBS KIDS for 11 years, and he still does.
He is also into weather, and he will track every single storm in the USA and Canada.
For the month of December, Gawain tried to double the amount of files he has.
On December 12th, 2017, he got more than 1,000 files.
On December 15th, 2017, he got more than 500 files.
On December 16th, 2017, he got about 2000 files.
On December 17th, 2017, he got about 1,400 files.
On December 18th, 2017, he got about 1,000 files.
On December 19th, 2017, he got about 500 files.

He got about 300 files from December 20th, 2017, to December 22th, 2017.
On December 24th, 2017, he got about 500 files.
For the rest of December, he got about 5,000 files.
He is planning to do a daily file count for August.
The estimate of the amount of files he got in December 2017, is around 10,000 (This includes files that he got from December 1, 2017, to December 11th, 2017).
He is an archiver, meaning he will try to find and preserve as much stuff as possible.
After the summer of 2018, he plans to start releasing files from PBS KIDS PLAY that he got a month before it shut down. Stay tuned.
He plans to do a couple other major things as well.
Hacking History and Miscellaneous
Unfortunately, he was hacked in March, appearing to cyber bully elks447. But he, thankfully, did not lose his account. He predicts it was a kid in his area because he lost his password paper, but it could have also been LAHM. He also collects PBS KIDS bumpers.
He is going to stay in Kart Kingdom till the end of it.
Plans and Ideas
He planned to make Kart Kingdom Rewritten when Kart Kingdom ends, but all plans of the game had been shut down when he found out about the cost for servers. It would be about $40,000, so he cancelled it.
He also wanted to make PBS KIDS GO! Rewritten, but plans didn't get very far.
Likes and Dislikes
He lives in Illinois and loves the song writer/singer John Mayer as well, and his favorite song is No Such Thing by John Mayer.
He is seen in Kart Kingdom and friends with just about everyone expect mean users and hackers.
He used to dislike new users, but he changed, and he will try to respond to everyone on the blog.
He doesn't really like the new PBS KIDS shows though, the only one he is ok with was Nature Cat (Due to the fact Nature Cat had an episode of them in Chicago).
He likes the Internet Archive as well, and he will go there almost every day.
He has around 3,700 friends in Kart Kingdom, and he is on about every day or so as well, right now he online a lot, and he is also posting comments quite a bit.
He is also active on many other websites.
KKFOREVER was an animation that he was going to do starting Summer of 2017, but it was put on hiatus.
Some are the reasons are due to episodes having to be maybe shorter then he thought they could be, and also due to cringy scripts, so he may just do a 5-10 minute episode every week or so with some of the scripts, and he may make fun of stuff like how KK had a desert event but still didn't add a Desert Area that the creators confirmed was coming in the future.
Another reason it was put on hiatus was due to stressful events, including when two of the dogs he grew up with (Gus and Dudley), died.
Him and his friends have re-done a few scripts.
Afterwards, he hinted in a fanfiction of his (KK Mods in a nutshell part 2) that KKFOREVER may come back soon. He also then planed to release some of the soundtrack for KKFOREVER.
On August 20th, 2018, he announced that the hiatus for KKFOREVER will end on August 21st, 2018.
On August 21th, 2018, the hiatus ended, and he begun to start getting no copyright music to use. He also wrote a script that night.
On August 22th, 2018, he started releasing a new music album he made for KKFOREVER on YouTube.
The very early stages of animation began on August 25th, 2018.
He will be using music that he made, music his friends made, and music made by other people.
PBSVAN was a movie that would have been the first movie of KKFOREVER. However, it was never actually confirmed.
He has made two songs for PBSVAN also. He doesn't plan to release them for now.
Only a very tiny bit of the script has been written.
If it ever were to come out, it would be 2 hours long.
KKFOREVER TESTING is an upcoming animation that won't be too good, it will mainly be a few second long testing and maybe a small skit here and there. He has made a few scripts for it.
It will come out in September 2018.
Kart On was an animation that was never announced, it was going to be like KKFOREVER, but be shorter.
Episodes would be 1-3 minutes long.
