⚠️ 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!
Ae-tan (also known as Æ-tan and æ-tan) is the moe personification and mascot of Encyclopedia Dramatica. Classy and elegant, she is the rival and serial molester of Wikipe-tan, the meager maid who serves this role for Wikipedia. Some used to argue that she was Girlvinyl herself, however this steaming load could be smelled all the way to the Moon as Ae-tan is not a walking whale.
Ae-tan was envisioned by Sheneequa to be the counterpart to Wikipe-tan, because if Wikipedians can be anime faggots, so can we. However, Mungbean (aka Fapman) was the one who actually created the fucking thing in a thread on the old ED Forum where people were asked to make suggestions for a new ED mascot, but instead either tried to be edgy/LOLRANDOMXDDDD or nominate themselves. But eventually, via some miraculous power of divine providence, a modern wonder was created, and (after some shitty suggestions like "Helpedtan"/"EDTan" and attempts to outfit her with an owl named "Ed") dubbed "Æ-tan".
Unsurprisingly, the first page of her creation thread already contains speculation regarding whether or not she has a dick.
When OhInternet was created, or rather, "shat out" by Girlvinyl (for the short time it lasted), she was unwilling to let the glorious beauty of our heavenly mascot slip through her fat fingers. To remedy this (while simultaneously trying to distance herself from ED to get more jew gold) the faggots of Ohi posted a couple pictures insinuating that ED's userbase was what was dragging the old Ae-tan down, and their new mascot, "Ohi-tan", is simply Ae-tan with a haircut.
However, in the end, we all know how things turned out. Ohi was shut down because no one needed another KYM (no one even needs the first one), DeHippo still fantasizes about looking like the perfect mascot she deluded herself into thinking was based on her, and the "excess weight" that Ohi-tan "discarded" is still here in the from on the real ED. Proving once again that you don't quit Encyclopedia Dramatica, Encyclopedia Dramatica quits you.
