Eds-are-number-one (formerly The Edsarenumberone Fansite) was an Ed, Edd n' Eddy fansite founded on January 12, 2005 by Ryan Harrigan, currently of the YouTube channel FreshFernStudios. The site was officially declared dead by the owner on December 23, 2012 after lying dormant for more than three years.
The site's most recent slogan is "Chicken! Pig! Cow...", marking the spontaneous nature of the show. That specific slogan is a quote from the Season 2 episode "Ed, Ed and Away"; it is spoken by Ed as the Eds run into the animals mentioned while running through Rolf's barnyard. The previous slogan, which was much longer, was not a quote from the show, and lasted up until 2009, was "Isn't it Gravy-tastic? Yes, but it's fantastic. THAT WAS A RHETORICAL QUESTION!"
On December 23, 2012, Ryan, the owner of the Eds-are-number-one, officially shut the site down, 20 days shy of its eighth anniversary. His intentions are mentioned in his last blog post:
|“|| Hey guys.
Since making this website at the young age of eight back on January 12, 2005, I've come to see how its prominence in my life has been fading ever since Ed, Edd n' Eddy ended back in 2009, if not before that. I've said since 2010 that I would only keep the site open for fan material to be submitted, what with sites like Edtropolis being MIA for quite some time.
However, that requires some degree of keeping the site within my list of things to keep track of, and frankly, this site isn't really on that list anymore.
I am sixteen now, struggling with my AP classes, and too worked up to have this site on my mind anymore. With it not being that prominent of a site anymore anyway, I've finally decided to pull the plug.
That doesn't mean I'm taking the site down, it just means that I will not be updating it in ANY form anymore. I will not even accept fan submissions anymore- there are many other EEnE fansites, plus deviantArt and Fanfiction.net to submit your works to (we never got much anyway). I can't really just delete the site, despite it not having a true place anymore: it's been with me for half my life. However, all things must come to a definite end at one point.
While it is 20 days short of our eighth anniversary, this was on the mind recently and I didn't want it to become a nuisance over the winter break- I need to keep my grades up if I want to go on a school trip to Austria in February!
On top of that, I will not be leaving the internet (obviously) and by that I mean I won't be completely in anonymity. My current YouTube channel is FreshFernStudios where, as of now, I mostly make music related to My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, but I do hope to get animations out in the future (something I have kept saying for the past four years.)
So, with that all said, to the few people this may disappoint (I know there aren't many,) I apologize, but you have to understand that this is one thing of many I'm just cleaning up and storing away to make room for new opportunities.
Good bye Eds-are-number-one!
