This is pretty good. I can insert the text into the current OP right now if you want. If you want this post to replace the current OP and give you post authorship, you'll have to ask @Null.So I actually got off my ass and wrote up a new Dobson OP. One of the things I notice in the thread is that we end up discussing specific events over and over and that we have to dredge up the exact same images, so in addition to the general overview of Dobson I included some of those more infamous moments so that they'll be easier to reference in the future. There's a lot of things that could have been mentioned but I didn't want the OP to be too gigantic since most of the people in the thread are already familiar with him. Let me know if there's any derps and I'll fix them.
Not to rag on you, but what's up with the images? A lot of them are broken. You mind taking another look at that?so here's my attempt after several tries and rewrites for an updated op for the enter thread. Is it good enough to replace the current outdated op from when the thread was still in the multimedia subforum?
Johnathan Rozanski, or as most people know him, The Mysterious Mr. Enter, is a cow most well known for reviewing various cartoons that a man his age shouldn't be getting worked up about.
Thanks to many examples of tard-rage stemming from said reviews, Enter was once an entity that commanded a whole sub-forum here on the Farms. Nowadays, discussion of his endeavours is relegated to this sole thread, as he spends most of his time fantasizing about a children's television show that will never be made.
While he might seem innocent enough, Enter's pet project has brought his blatant hypocrisy to shine, seeing how many of the flaws and criticisms he would otherwise sperg over with other works are present in spades in his own magnum opus - Growing Around.
From the get-go, Growing Around constitutes Enter's manifesto as a cartoon sperg, as his idea for the show was "born" off one of his own Animated Atrocities videos from 2014, in which he reviewed a rejected Disney pilot and basically said, "See their idea? Here's why they failed. I can do it right".
Growing Around Animatic Preview | Are We There Yet?
A preview for the show my team and I have been working on for awhile now.
"This is another one that falls into the category of thinking because it has a creative idea, it excuses them from doing anything creative with it."
-Enter, presciently roasting himself in the same video he lifted his premise from.
For those unaware, the whole 'schtick' of the show (as well as the short Enter ripped the premise from) is how adults and children have swapped places in society. While many onlookers have pointed out how dystopian this setting really is, Enter doesn't see how this is an issue, failing to realize that denizens of his world lose most of their rights once they turn 18. He also neglects to do anything fun or interesting with his setting, once again ignoring the implications of a world that has been run by children since the Stone Age. The countries are just terrible kids puns and most social norms are still structured as if the world was made today through the eyes of a kid - it doesn't take any of the theory crafting that usually comes with decent world-building.
As copiously stated by John, the show itself is supposedly made for children, but a closer look reveals that not to be the case.
While Enter's seeping hatred for normal adult things like getting a job and living on your own might appeal to manchildren in general, the fact Growing Around is literally being made for Enter's and only Enter's own enjoyment becomes clear as you start noticing a recurring theme throughout the series: the concerning, gratuitous insertion of a certain fetish, namely having his male characters forcibly crossdressed in various girly outfits, usually for humiliation purposes, with just a few examples shown below.
It gets rather creepy and uncomfortable for the casual viewer, as John continues to insist nothing is wrong and this is completely okay for a kids show because it's totally just a one-off gag (meant as a clever commentary on gender, no less) and not a full-time feature of the show itself.
Enter's apparent lack of reservation when it comes to inserting fetishes in a 'show' aimed at children, on top of his terrible grasp on worldbuilding and storytelling, have resulted in confusing storylines and inappropriate morals - all of which he has harshly criticized in other works of fiction.

Despite a lack of experience and work material, in mid-2018 Enter, in his infinite wisdom, thought it was a good idea to start an Indiegogo campaign in an attempt to fund development for his series.

To the surprise of no one it failed, raising only ~10,600 of his delusional 350,000-dollar goal for making a pilot with only sloppily written scripts, scrounged together artwork from various DeviantArt users with no consistent visual style, and barely any animation at all to show as proof of concept. With all his hopes and dreams piled on this crowdfunding attempt, its failure pushed John into a downward spiral of frustration and insanity. Alas, he doubled down, focusing even more on Growing Around to the exclusion of all his other projects.
Previously, Enter had even published a Growing Around book on Amazon, Growing Around: Party Panic. It was rescued and thoroughly reviewed in this thread by @Piga Dgrifm after Enter made it "non-canon" and tried to make it disappear.
If you want to spare yourself from reading it (sensible choice), an Amazon customer review ripped it to shreds, saying actual kids didn't enjoy it, the pacing was poorly thought out, the dialogue was unlike anything children would say, and it gave off uncomfortable vibes with all the crossdressing involved. You should take the customers' word for it, but if you want to see it for yourself, you can find a PDF copy of it here, courtesy of Piga.
During the Indiegogo saga, Red Van Buskirk (then known as reviewer Robo-buddies) livestreamed a reading of the book, which resulted in her having a PTSD breakdown from her own experiences with parental abuse. Enter, naturally, jumped at the chance to play victim. The stream itself is currently lost, but here's hoping it will one day be found.
With all of this Growing Around nonsense, it's easy to forget what Enter was originally known for - his poorly-edited cartoon reviews where he screeches about bad morals, mean-spiritedness, and gross-out humour into a potato microphone.
Enter's hissy fits over his bugbears in animation have sparked much drama and controversy, most famously his rampant hatred of some of the writers of Spongebob Squarepants, like Zeus Cervas and Casey Alexander.

...and his review of My Little Pony's Putting Your Hoof Down, where he became depressed after watching Fluttershy, a character he saw himself in, bullying others.
MLP: FiM “Putting Your Hoof Down” Episode Review [TheMysteriousMrEnter]
He has shown regret for some of these (like the bit with Casey), but they are noteworthy examples of his behaviour pattern.
Much to his, and everyone else's dismay, he still produces these, though ever since his Indiegogo debacle they are little more than excuses to say how Growing Around is whatever he's critiquing "done right". His most recent series is Nick-O-Rama, where throughout the month of December 2019 he would review every Nicktoon ever made. Of course, thanks to Enter's lack of work ethic and poor planning skills, these videos would come out consistently late - with excuses ranging from 'playing too many video games' to Enter 'hurting his wrist' (by playing too many video games). Naturally, this upset fans and provided ammo to his detractors, eventually leading up to the deletion of his Twitter. Two months later, Enter managed to finish his Nick-O-Rama series in his usual, resentful way, and can be viewed here as a playlist created by a fan, as Enter is too lazy to create one himself. Furthermore, Enter has repeatedly started or announced (and never followed through on) various projects, including several Patreon-demanded reviews, a RPG, a Growing Around TCG, a Let's Play series of every PS1 game, and multiple reviews of the book "1001 video games you must play before you die", for which he seems to have a burning hatred.
Some debate regarding Enter's personal life has cropped up from time to time in the thread. Besides bringing up his Asperger's diagnosis (big shocker) on occasion, he has claimed to being asexual, aromantic, and sex-repulsed in several of his videos and Deviantart posts, which he has used to justify his rage towards crude romances and certain adult themes in cartoons. He does also claim to having been brutally bullied in school and hating school in general, which is why both are major early triggers for him.
It is known he lives with his grandparents these days and hates his own parents, making a decent chunk of spending money from his Youtube and other sources of ad revenue, if not enough to live off of on his own. Despite his claims of being able to cook, Enter himself has confirmed he eats nothing but junk food in the form of Kraft Mac and Cheese, instant ramen, and Mountain Dew, not mentioning likely eating candy constantly as well, not doing his health any favours.
He shaves with scissors instead of a razor for whatever ungodly reason, resulting in a patchy and scraggly hobo beard. Furthermore, he refuses to brush his teeth, allegedly out of his dislike of mint flavour. He even tried to address his issues with dental hygiene in "Clean Up On Smile Five", a MLP fanfic he wrote and announced he'd get animated. Needless to say, he failed to deliver.
In addition to sharing personal details with his followers, Enter has also used his cartoon reviews to discuss his worldview from time to time. Surprisingly, some of his stances came across as fairly level-headed for what you could expect from him, painting himself as a centrist with libertarian tendencies. Initially, this was acknowledged by some of his critics as a 'saving grace' of sorts, and boosted his credibility in the eyes of his fans, who accepted his hot takes as gospel.
This veneer of validation prompted Enter to fancy himself an authoritative voice in world affairs. In 2019, Enter did a "documentary" series called Technocracy, in which he called out internet companies and governments capsizing privacy, limiting free speech, and reducing monetization (something he, as a floundering content creator, has a vested interest in). However, most of his fanbase didn't care, resulting in declining views and subscribers.

His channel still bleeding subs as a result of the whole Nick-O-Rama Drama™, Enter the pundit recently decided to dig himself deeper in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, issuing long, unsolicited rants where he claimed healthcare wasn't a human right and insisted on the immediate reopening of the entire country, with zero public health policy understanding to back him up. As expected, detractors and fans alike were not amused, with even his most die-hard yet still upset supporters finding it impossible to side with him every time he took to YouTube to shoot himself in the foot trying to elaborate on his stance.
John not only takes himself incredibly seriously, he's in severe denial about his own situation as well. He avoids all opposition, accusing any and all critics who offer advice as trolls, and ignoring their often well-meaning criticism entirely, thus causing new detractors to form and driving many of his fans away, some of whom become his current trolls and haters.
Enter's shitty attitude has caused former collaborators to publicly disavow him, most notably his former editor, and the original character designer for Growing Around. Nowadays, people allegedly working on his 'show' are either a gaggle of sycophants presumably afraid to incur in Enter's ire, or just artists he's hired off Deviantart, with most of the commissioned GA art being of visibly inferior quality than the rest of their authors' output, leading many to believe that Enter is a control freak.
What the future holds for Enter is unclear, as he seemingly wants to focus all of his time, money, and energy on a show that will most likely never get properly made.
He might have had a good thing going for him, but wasted it away. He had the respect of a good number of fans (and even some trolls, with his taking on of Viacom's copyright strikes) even during his more spergier moments. However,
through dismissing criticism, deriding any concerns as trolling attempts, and refusing to prioritize realistic goals and expectations, Enter has alienated anyone who would otherwise be willing to help him. By neglecting his reviews and routinely disappointing his fans, his YouTube career has stagnated and his channel has seen a slow but steady decline in active subscribers, as well as diminishing views on every new upload.
His constant refusal to admit and address his flaws and not hold himself on a pedestal has seen him lose the respect of fellow reviewers and followers alike, and quickly erode the sympathy he netted after speaking up about his trolls, thus squandering what chance at redemption he might have had.
For all his penchant for playing victim and constant whinging about all the abuse he's had to endure from his trolls and haters, Enter, like the finest of cows, has proven time and again that his true worst enemy is none other than himself.
REST IN PEACE
The Mysterious Mr. Enter's YouTube Career
(He never scored.)
One little note before this op is finished and a rather recurring issue for the enter thread as a whole. To put it simply Enter attracts autists like moths to a flame. Plenty of users have joined the thread, saying they are totally better than Enter and admitting in thread to watching little kids shows, showing abject hatred for enter or their own half baked fanfic projects just to name a few. To put it simply if you want to say you're better than anyone on the internet for the world to see, you're probably not.
(THIS MESSAGE IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY A CONCERNED USER WHO HAVE SEEN SEVERAL USERS FALL INTO THIS TRAP. FOR THE LOVE OF THE INTERNET, DON'T DO THIS.)

Not to rag on you, but what's up with the images? A lot of them are broken. You mind taking another look at that?
They're definitely broken, fren. Went to 2 different browsers just to make sure it wasn't Brave having a stroke.Seems fine from my end and the links all work fine as well. If there's still a problem with images, it's probably because I copy pasted the whole thing to the main thread after finalizing it in pm's. Is there any other issues I should deal with?
