⚠️ 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!

Penesis, Chapter 1
In the beginning there was Moot.
On the first day Moot created 4chan and said 'Lo, this is 4chan, bringer of pain'.
On the second day, Moot created Anonymous, they became lonely so Moot created Bridget, Anonymous complained of this trap, but Moot proclaimed 'there are no girls on the interbutt, Bridget will suffice'.
On the third day, Moot gave man tripcode, 'behold tripcode' he said, only ye who wish to forgive may perform.
On the fourth day, Moot created /b/, and many Anonymous rejoiced.
On the fifth day, the server crashed, Moots creation was in disarray, MYSQL errors killed off many Anonymous with no mercy.
On the sixth day, there was a sticky, and many complained of this sticky, and thus proclaimed 'this sticky sux0rz'.
On the seventh day, Moot created faggot laws, and anonymous knew what must be done.
Fagsodus, Chapter 9
Anonymous toiled under Moot's harsh rule for over 9000 years, building great pyramids unto him on many hectares of land.
Anonymous cried out "When shall we be freed of this tyrant king, who so punishes us for our beliefs?"
The Internet spoke unto Anonymous: "There shall be a baby born amongst you, a child prophet, and he shall be called Ian, and he shall lead you from this place. There will be some other guys too, but they will turn out to be faggots."
Upon his 17th year, the prophet Ian came before Moot and brought plagues of DDoSing and rebellion on his head.
Ian parted the Internet, and led his people to freedom. Forty days and forty nights they traveled through the desert.
Finally, on the last day, Ian dropped his GBC and proclaimed "This, my followers, is our new land. It shall be called 7chan."
And lol, the Internet saw that it was good.
The Revelations of Tanukihat the Apostle, Chapter 13
A vision was brought to me by the Angel of Death, bearing the number 444, the Mark of the Beast.
I saw great gouts of flame, the earth was rent in two, the people tore at their clothes.
I heard the lamentation of woman's, and a great wailing sent up from all I could see.
The Angel showed me the ruination brought upon our world. I saw downtimes last many weeks. I saw noobs crawling over every surface as maggots.
I saw great piles of money, but when I touched them they dissolved, became as dust.
I saw then a great horse, bearing a rider in a black cloak across the landscape. It was Mockskin, Rider of the Apocalypse, and he brought destruction.
I saw Moot, the Lord of the Flies, striding across the world. His minions did battle with those of 7chan, a holy war to last for centuries.
I asked the Angel, "What is this place?"
The Angel stood before me, and he spoke: "Look, look at what I have shown you. It is the final days, it is the End of Times."
Symbion, is the founder of 7chan.org. A year after its founding, the events of /b/day occurred, and in the chaos 7chan emerged as a homeland for the /b/tards where jailbait could be posted, raids could be conducted, weeaboo could be humiliated, and other massive wins. A few months after it took off however, he decided it was too much work and gave the entire thing, domain name and all to ian. Many things have happened since then, but no one has really heard from symbion. He used to also own not7chan.org, but let it expire.
Any more info on this elusive being should be reported to the Symbion Watch Administration.
A Little History
7chan was created on September 25th, 2005 by symbion and the mysterious zeneslev, for the lulz. The site used to be funded by zeneslev's brother Renzo, but that luxury back again bitches. 7chan is currently NOT owned by p4ch3c0 but owned by Moot, when the buyout was announced, it was originally thought to be trolling until a final announcement was made, bricks were shat. For a time, 7chan redirected to 4chan, which at that time had its initial Web 2.0 design, this caused much rage, b-day veterans were of course, pissed, and were forced to return to 4chan or fuckoff to somewhere else. It's main server is in FDC's datacenter. It did not gain a substantial userbase until the events of /b/-day, where it was advertised on /b/ through the underlying chaos. 7chan now has a significant user base, and is slowly garnering moar.
As of January 25, 2007, the beloved /i/nvasion board was taken down due to a violation of the datacenter's TOS.
Ironically, despite flourishing as a result of the oppression that preceded /b/-day, moderation and enforcement of rules is actually comparable to that of 4chan. Moderators will ban you over the slightest things, especially upon receiving a topic/post report, as people who create topics/posts that violate the rules (such as those who post more then five syllables) will be met with incredibly swift banhammer strikes, and have their topics/posts deleted. This is also why 7chan is better than 4chan due to the fact retards are eradicated from the site.
When 4chan closed temporarily on July 2008, the 7chan admins made the site inaccessible to all users for several weeks to stave off the cancer. When it reopened, most /b/-day veterans were forced to leave out of sheer anger, due to the fact that the furry board had been restored and that 90% of the other boards, including /b/, had been deleted by the mods. At this point, even the stupidest users have realized that this was a painfully obvious example of trolling by abusive mods/admins, and that 7chan has fallen victim to a case of massive modfaggotry. Most users now agree that OmgWtfIDiedLol and p4ch3c0 have caught the cancer themselves and that they have disgraced themselves to the point where their faggotry is now on the same level as moot and W.T. Snacks. All /b/-day veterans and refugees who used the site as an alternative to 4chan now refer to the newly reborn 7chan as NIGGERTITS MK. 2.
Because of this modfaggotry, some users have even went as far as to claim that moot actually did take over 7chan on December 2007 and that the independence declared during Soviet Sunday was nothing more than a ruse.
7chan and 4chan
7chan and 4chan are in constant rivalry due to the events of /b/-day, where many 4channers separated from the herd to make their new home at 7chan. As such, 7chan maintains that they are better than 4chan because their community is smaller and contains less gaiafags, newfags, and other undesirables, and because their /b/ has NO RULES, LOL. 4chan, on the other hand, maintains that 7chan is inferior because 4chan's is the original /b/, because 7chan is unstable and experiences downtime. Although no one on 7chan ever goes to 4chan, they are always the first and best source when it comes to 4chan's downtime.
The deep-seated nature of this rivalry causes minor outbreaks of interchan conflict occasionally, though usually such occurrences are minor, such as a couple of 4channers posting furry on 7chan's /b/ in order to piss them off. The lingering distrust and anger between these two factions is unlikely to ever cease.
But what IS 7chan?
As the second offspring of 4chan, it is also the most well known of the chans (that is actually still up and running). The difference between 4chan and 7chan is the stereotype that 7chan is essentially cancer-free, full of oldfags, stricter mods, and more boards to choose from. It also has a fully functioning lolicon and shotacon (both gay and straight) board, because they aren't fucking pussies, and if you are gonna be a sick fuck might as well stay in one place where mods ban CP on sight. Also, apparently if you spam or flame any board on 7chan, you get royally pwned hard by the mods. Samefags are also quickly called out as every post an anon makes in a specific thread, an ID will appear next to their post, and every post they make in that thread from then on, making lulz less likely but samefags are obliterated in the process. It is essentially a less fun, but more serious form of 4chan, and what iichan wishes it could be, but fuck that place because it's fucking boring and no one goes there anymore but newfags or pedos.
7chan's minecraft discussion
You may have heard of the indie phenomenon, Minecraft. Well, 7chan has recently made a minecraft-related board, which although you may think it means that it is for all topics related to minecraft (which could probably just be contained on the /v/ board), it has a mildly different purpose. In actual fact, it's just to show of 7chan's minecraft server, and most of the posts are about the "antics" and "lulz" which occured the previous night. They also love to post logs from their as well, because people actually read that shit.
Though the community is what you'd expect (Recieve more updates now faggot or I will BAWW in my hugbox!!!1), they seem to actually be much more productive than the actual /v/ board. If you're an excessive minecraft fan, it is an excellent resource. Otherwise, stay away. But if you're a minecraft fan, it's worth a look.
Mod Drama 2: Electric Boogaloo
[OH SHIT THIS IS TOO AWESOME] [7chan and Hal Turner= lulz] 0
- "As many of you know, a certain "raid" that was started here has gained lots of attention over the past few weeks. This "raid", targeted at Hal Turner of Hal Turner Radio, was actually a plan that was devised by Buri-chan, former 7chan admin, and Hal Turner himself. The details of the plan are that 7chan offered Hal Turner notoriety with the *chan communities [as most of them are filled with white supremacists anyway], and, unknown to us, donations, in exchange for an extra server to ease the pressure on our current, overtaxed servers.
- As the community is open to pretty much any type of discussion, we couldn't exactly stop this so-called raid from happening, so we decided to play along. Couldn't hurt, right?
- What we didn't count on was the few "out of the loop" raiders attacking other sites, such as Bill White's [aka overthrow.com owner]. Apparently, Bill White took offense and ordered his own fans [ps3 hueg numbers] to take down our site, which, as you know, has happened.
- Apologies to all parties unintentionally harmed by this mixup. We are no longer in this with Hal [since, apparently, this is a scam on his part, since he received over $1,000 in donations].
- - Matt"
Reactions to this statement seem to fall into several categories:
- "Meh. We did it for the lulz, and we got them. Declare victory!"
- "The mods are just kidding! IT'S ALL AN ILLUSION! BLACK IS WHITE! POOL IS OPEN!"
- "I'm shocked, SHOCKED that 7chan wasn't honest and forthright! I'm going back to 4ailchan, where the mods never act badly."
- "Where's mah check?" (i.e. "Let's make a meme out of it!")
Hal Turner says:
- "Bill White is once again simply making things up. He has quite a track record of doing exactly that.
- There isn't one iota of truth to what Bill has written in his claiming the DDoS was setup in any way by me.
- I do not know anyone at any of the web sites that perpetrated this series of attacks. I did not talk to anyone about doing the attacks.
- Bill White simply doesn't know what the hell he is talking about. He is a has- been who is trying to weasel some publicity for himself and his pathetic web site out of the issue involving me.
- Hal Turner"
A Chat With "Moot"
"Moot" "Denies" Involvement
In an attempt to quell the impending shitstorm, a sticky appeared on 4chan's /b/ on Monday 10, 2007 (wat). Of course, everybody knows that Moot is simply attempting to prevent a rebellion on 4chan's /b/ board, as 7chan's /b/ is currently under siege by many individuals who are expressing their displeasure about the intended merger. The real story is clearly visible here.
Currently, the 'survivors' have evacuated to Zerochan and 711chan, where - like the Mormons - they hole up in their bunker and pass the shortwave radio around by candle light, acting out their "I am Legend" fantasies, while the rest of 7chan laughs at them for thinking the internet is serious business.
People don't realize that the 7chan staff like to troll the user base periodically to weed out faggots. It works, but it's incredibly annoying, sometimes the staff push it too far. Things like this are done in subtle ways like partyhard.css (hardly subtle). When problems are at extremes (ie: 4chan going down), mods are pretty much allowed to do anything. When 4chan was hacked, /b/ was changed to party mode, an image of a large obese woman was flying around the page, Walk the Dinosaur was played with a flash of two male dinosaurs 69ing, and pretty much anyone complaining was banned.
tl;dr: NOTHING LOL
In an effort to cure the cancer, 7chan mods introduced a new mechanic to sage, dubbed Powersage© by 7chan users. While active, Powersage© made it so that any saged post on a thread had to be canceled out by a non-sage post before a thread could be bumped. Also, OP's couldn't cancel sage on their own threads, so they couldn't bump their own shit. Sadly, this proved to be ineffective, as sage is the automatic response of most of the 7chan userbase, and as of June 2010, Powersage© wasn't active on /b/.
"LURK BEFORE POSTING"
Recently on 7chan's /b/, /x/, /men/ and /banner/, there have been these messages slowly scrolling up the screen saying "LURK BEFORE POSTING", and if you complain about them the mods insantly ban you. People have probably been on other *chan boards before and therefore do not need to be reminded one of the fundamental community rules again and again. And even though a bit of guidance to the n00bs is a good thing, it should be contained on the help page, it doesn't need to be presented in such a patronising manner. It is just ridiculous.
However, 7chan users have been strikethroughing through this section and have been linking this section to the "butthurt" article. I guess they not only love irritating words floating in across the screen and making the text barely read-able, but they are also mad.
February 2009 always, 7chan is currently having issues with its hosting.
The 7chan Videos, TV and Anime Division, imaginatively named "channel7" has a new blog as of April 6, 2009 at some website. Their moderators have politely told ED to go to hell and to not mix up 7chan and channel7 in the future.
As of 27 September, 2016, 7chan appears to be down again.
Later in the same day, it's back.
