⚠️ Encyclopedia Dramatica is currently being restored by automated scripts ⚠️
There's been a lot of questions as to what's going on with the site and what comes next. So we have this (ordered) roadmap of what's being worked on and what's to come. This will be updated until the roadmap is complete as Æ has a lot of missing features and ideas that I'd like to fix in regards to its offerings before I implement big plans for the site's popularity and well-being in 2021.
Content restoration (Mostly done, few things missing that will be restored sporadically) Image restoration (Being run in background, nothing I can do cept wait)
Æ Imageboard (Currently being worked on)
Mediawiki upgrade and backend fixes
.onion domain for Tor-friendly editing and viewing
CSS overhaul (Fixing things like the videos on mobile, and overall a rehaul of the wiki's look to be more friendly to readers)
Paid bounty board for new articles (Won't be managed by me for legal reasons however I will ensure it runs smoothly)
Anonymous phone # service for those seeking ban evades from Twitter as well as a phone number not tied to their name (more details at launch)
Currently we are nearing our annual LLC renewal fee ($650) as well throwing the funds required for these other changes and aspects. If you would like to support Æ consider purchasing a copy of The Hustler's Bible or securing some Merch. Donating is also appreciated however I would rather give something back as per the two options above.
If you have any questions you can join our public Telegram chat to DM me privately or @ me in chat.
You can also email me via [email protected]
Merch notes: Thank you to all who have purchased merch. We will ship late January or mid February depending on our provider's speed.
Here's to setting the world on fire in 2021!
Like every website on the interwebs, 4chan too has a banning policy, but what makes 4chan bans so much different than other bans (like being a complete dumbass here on ED) is the fact that to get banned from 4chan you have to do something so horrifyingly stupid that you'd have to be a pathetic loser to get one. It's like this: If you break a rule on 4chan, it's a ban; if you happen to come across a pissed off admin on 4chan, then be ready for a sure-fire beating from the banhammer. The greatest holder of the banhammer on 4chan was W.T. Snacks, but was subsequently banned himself by some faggot, and during Snack's reign bannings would come for either posting illegal content or BECAUSE HE FUCKING CAN. Nowadays bans are usually
just for posting CP and spamming links and other gay shit like that handed out extremely liberally, because he does it for free, but occasionally epic bans can be produced if done correctly. Posting on 7chan or 420chan that you were banned on 4chan will get you banned, also Worf will anally rape you.

How 2 overcome ban on 4chan
Open Command Prompt and type "ipconfig /renew", if you're still banned after the first try, type it again
If that doesn't work, try these steps:
- Go to your router's page (192.168.1.1 by default)
- In "Status" or "Setup" menu hit "Release IP" button. Save settings
- Disconnect the router from modem
- Remove batteries from the modem and disconnect AC cord (DO NOT TURN OFF THE ROUTER).Leave it for couple minutes
- On your router's web page find "MAC Address Clone" function and change your MAC address to whatever you want (only numbers 1-9 and letters A-F). Save settings
- Plug in AC cord in the modem and reconnect it to the router
- On your router's web page hit "IP Address Renew" button and new IP adress will be assigned to your router
- Get back to trolling, camwhoring and invading other boards, Anon
Recently it seems it's not just your IP being checked. If you are still seeing the banned message after flushing your IP, change your user agent and flush your IP a second time.
