Fandom involvement[edit]

Silentwulf's Fursona
A new forum member, getting a warm welcome, as demonstrated by Alexander Grey.

While the majority of his films don't focus on furries, his site's forum has encouraged many young fans to inquire about what a furry actually is.[citation needed] Silentwulf attends furry conventions and furmeets alike.

During the early stages of the Silentwulf.com site, Silentwulf created the forum in order to allow fans to interact.[clarify] While the board is focused towards the site and it's videos, the majority of threads are created in the various boards relating to media, blogging, technology, and content submission.

The original board was hosted on a separate server from the main site. Administrators Silentwulf and Xcxeon, were faced with several security and control issues because of this. Silentwulf was able to obtain a broken copy of the forums database, and worked closely with Xeon in bringing the board to the site's main server.

A common trend to the board, is the birth of new furries,[clarify] due to the influence of the site's admins, and other furries. The forum is home to over 1,000 members, and over 150,000 articles.

Fursona[edit]

Silentwulf's fursona is a wolf/malamute hybrid.

Filmography[edit]

A title card from Silentwulf Thrift

Silentwulf is best known for his "off-the-wall" humor that has previously been featured on YouTube and Albino Blacksheep. He started his website back in 2005, and has continued to produce content through 2012.

He focuses on variety projects, often featuring various minor skits or jokes. His two two primary series are 20 Things You Should Never Say, and Silentwulf Thrift. The first Silentwulf Thrift episode premiered on blip.TV on October 5, 2011.

His videos sometimes gain controversy[citation needed]} due to their aim on dark humor and satire. Reception on his "20 Things You Should Never Say" series has been generally positive,[citation needed] despite satire aimed at furries, bronies, and gamers. His video "20 Things You Should Never Say To A Brony", has gained a considerable amount of attention.[citation needed]

YouTube Furry War[edit]

Silentwulf gained a key name in the fandom,[citation needed] when he created a video blog (entitled I Like Furries in response to a hate video titled I Hate Furries),[clarify][citation needed] stating the myths and facts about being a furry. While the film gained much praise[citation needed] from fellow furries,[who?] it led to an invasion[clarify] led by anonymous while he was moving to his new home.

Silentwulf's MySpace, e-mail and YouTube accounts were hacked and vandalized. This was one of the larger attacks during the YouTube Furry War.[clarify] His site and forum however, remained safe due to the fellow admins.

The situation was resolved behind the scenes and Silentwulf soon regained access to his MySpace and e-mail accounts upon his return. His old YouTube account still remains damaged with all content deleted and, as a result, Silentwulf was forced to create a new account from scratch.
