Even though, the words You Thought Points are originated from the You Can Think Pad, the Player cannot earn points in this device as its purpose was changed when You Thought Points system was first implemented.
The acronym "YTPs" might be a reference to YouTube Poop, the infamous video mashups in the YouTube web containing editing pre-existing media sources for humorous, obscene, annoying, confusing, shocking, détournement, or dramatic purposes.
Furthermore, many people thought the name "YTPs" actually stood for YouTube Poops, and so the actual name may be a jab at that.
Before the Kickstarter exclusive demoV1.2 update, these values used to be only for placeholders because the methods were not implemented, so they always show up the same values. As of the V1.2 update, they have added a working counter and the Player can earn YTPs in multiple places.
