He has watched the PBS Kids channel and has played games on their website for 11 years and still does.
He plays many other games as well, but Kart Kingdom is his favorite game, as he plays it every single day. He is on Kart Kingdom related wikis a lot as well.
He lives in the Chicagoland Combined Statistical Area.
Causes for popularity
A main reason for him being popular is because he has about 2.3 million files from the following:
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, Ask, 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, The Weather Channel, CNN,WNET, WGBH-TV, as well as other things.
Some of them are screenshots from PBS KIDS, 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 an old account also. The reason he only said one thing and nothing else for a few days because, at that time, he didn't know how to type and spell well.
He had a few friends on the blog in 2015, but not many.
It wasn't until 2016 that he started being active on the blog a lot more, and he started to gain popularity quickly. When he found the secret code "PBSVAN", his popularity exploded. Since then he has been one of the most popular male user in Kart Kingdom.
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 the rest in duets and trios. These include the codes LAKESAND, BASINLONG, PBSVAN, KSPSAPPLE, KTTZPEGGY, LPBGATOR, and IPTVCOW, etc, not including the about 100 other unreleased items he found, helped find, or found before they were released.
He is fascinated with weather, and he will track every single storm in the US and Canada. He watches The Weather Channel every day. He also is interested in tornadoes, as he checks the path of tornadoes and how many of them touched down in the past 48 hours, and then he archives them. He also watches any other severe weather happenings in the US and Canada.
For the month of December 2016, 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 550 files.
On December 16th, 2017, he got about 2,000 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.
On December 20th, 2017, he got about 100 files
He got about 300 files from December 20th, 2017, to December 22nd, 2017.
On December 24th, 2017, he got about 500 files.
For the rest of December, he got about 5,000 files.
The estimated number 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)
His file count heavily increased in the summer of 2018 however, going from 60,000 all the way to more than 2.3 million in just months.
He is an archiver, meaning he will try to find and preserve as much stuff as possible.
After the summer of 2018, he planned to start releasing files from PBS KIDS PLAY that he got a month before it shut down.
He plans to do a couple other major things as well in 2018-2020, such as massive archival projects, massive animation projects, and also plans to do other things in the next few years as well.
Unfortunately, he was hacked in March of 2017, 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, as he has a few hundred of them.
As soon as Gus gave out the Jet Hair for the 2017 Back to Bortron 7 event many users started to copy him, but Gawain is fine with that. Some think he likes Ready, Jet, Go, but he doesn't. He just likes the hair that Jet wears, as its the closest to Curly Hair.
He is going to stay in Kart Kingdom till the end of it, meaning he will be around until it ends.
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 canceled it. If he ever were to make it, there would have to be no servers.
He also wanted to make PBS KIDS GO! Rewritten, but plans didn't get very far. However, in September 2018, PBS KIDS GO! Rewritten plans started up, as he started getting thousands of files from PBS KIDS GO! in just days.
He also of course, plans to make KKFOREVER. It is planned to come out soon.
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 also likes the songs Clarity, Spilt Screen Sadness, Speak For Me, 3X5, Moving On And Getting Over, Wheel, and Stop This Train. (All of them being made by John Mayer.)
He is seen in Kart Kingdom and friends with just about everyone expect very mean users and hackers.
He used to dislike new users back in 2016, but he changed, and he will try to respond to everyone on the blog, but its hard to.
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), but he is ok with the most recent show from PBS KIDS however
He likes the Internet Archive as well, and he will go there every single day. He will also archive websites onto the Wayback Machine.
He dislikes violent games, and never plays them.
He is currently active here and on many other places.
He has around 3,700 friends in Kart Kingdom, and he is on about every day or so as well, as of right now he online a lot, and he is also posting comments quite a bit. He is active on YouTube, Club Penguin Rewritten, Animal Jam, Minecraft, PBS KIDS, Twitter, Wikia (Fandom), etc.
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 though.
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.
A brief hiatus has begun, until the new Kart kingdom update is complete. Because Gawain can use some of the models from the new update for KKFOREVER.
He plans to animate some of his kart fictions/books/fanfictions, and some of the roleplays him and his friends did.
