How do you stop a toxic fanbase?
Don't appeal to nerd culture.
Don't revel in half-baked lore dropped plot threads that can be used for terrible AU fanfics or theory videos
Lots of big hiatus (hiatuses?)
It worked for Homestuck
Release a feature length movie.
Don't be afraid to express your disappointment or anger with them.
You shove it into the detox machine, obviously.
Hiatuses and new fanbases that are ripe for the picking
Stop bringing them up for starters
Well you can start by NOT GIVING THEM THEIR OWN CONTAINMENT BOARD.
Cancel the show.
It's not the fanbase, it's a group of people or a certain kind of person that is attracted to things they can obsess over.
If the show they obsess over weren't around they'd find another.
Why are you asking us? Have you looked around at the fanbases here?
Prune related threads and banish the generals all the way to /trash/
you cash in as best you can and pray they don't turn on you
Just enjoy the content
Tell nobody about it url
Don't buy wearable merch
Don't talk about it on social media
The creators need to talk about how disappointed they are at their fanbase, and pointing out their toxic ways will hopefully get fans to realize how their acting.
You let it die out, they always die or become less cancerous eventually.
Shitposters are not fans. They’re shitposters.
Fandoms ruin everything.
Enjoy a show, watch it regularly, move on. This fandom obsession shit is where it all goes to hell.
You wait for the one concetrated group of faggots to move onto the next thing.
There doesn't seem to be anything particularly memey on the horizon, but nevertheless we've probably got a longass time before more Rick and Morty.
blaming all the bad things on fandom
now you're stepping into hipster territory user
More like funposters!
Shitpost about it on Sup Forums constantly
By not caring
"Toxic" fanbases (millennials...) are a part of mainstream media. It's the behavior that the industry breeds.
You ban tumblr snowflakes who use words like "toxic" to describe a fan base.
Give into their demands.
will also work.
