⚠️ 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!
A poetry club
Live Journal's A Poetry Club is a good place for bad poetry, co-moderated by and his sock puppet, . In fact, any member that is not a sock journal of veritasinverse has been banned from the community.
After writing doggerel to, for and about himself for six months, veritasinverse became tired of real people attempting to join the conversation and changed membership to invitation only, commanding that all future entries should be marked as private reading, saving casual browsers from being assaulted with the worst poetry since the Douglas Adam got into limericks. For the first and only time in his writing career, critics approved.
Unfortunately, veritasinverse reopened A Poetry Club to public viewing about one month later because his sock puppets couldn't get their tongues very far up his ass and that made him lonely. In celebration of once again inflicting his pig ignorant opinions on the world at large, he posted a poem that, in theory, is a sterling example of iambic pentameter:
A Rambling Wreck from Georgia Tech was walking down the road; he didn't see it hopping there-- a brown-eyed little toad. But Toad saw him and jumped away just in the nick of time, and doing so provided me the perfect ending rhyme. -- veritasinverse
Those who survived reading this tripe did not point out it veers from iambic pentameter and, even when it doesn't, it sucks like a black hole. This is because the only three people whom the moderator allows to comment are fucktards who wouldn't know a decent poem if Poe rose up from hell and read one to them. (See Also: Sheep)
The Second Death
After a few weeks of being reopened to the public, veritasinverse decided to be weirder than ever before and, without warning, banned all members of the group including the other moderators. (See Gawn Bowlin')
Reasonable requests to let someone else take over the group fell on deaf ears, though veritas did recommend The Writer's Guild community to baffled APC refugees. He said he thought they were a good writing workshop because they used the same mental-institution-gray page layout as he did.
One last, horrible threat emerged from veritasinverse when he was grilled about his latest insanity:
"I haven't deleted APC yet for three reasons. For one, I posted a suggestion for another LJ writing community that might interest some of our membership. Second, some members might want a chance to copy something they had posted at APC. Third, there is the slimmest possibility I will use the space for another, totally different writing community." --veritasinverse
Only time will tell if he will indeed set forth to butcher yet another form of literature.
Example of typical contribution
Sweetheart - a poem written by veritasinverse to one of his many cats:
I couldn't write your poem today, so this will have to do; it isn't any good at all, but still too good for you.
Which can be lazily improved by anyone. For example:
I cannot write a poem at all, so this will have to do: iambic rhythm, kiddy-like, and rhyming "do" with "you".
