⚠️ 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.

Æ Roadmap

  • 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! - aediot

    Ajax (JavaScript)

    From Encyclopedia Dramatica
    Jump to navigation Jump to search

    AJAX is a series of web technologies developed by Micro$oft in 1999. Basically, it's just all of the non-standard, half-working JavaScript functions in a hugbox. Take any successful Flash portal and you'll find AJAX pouring maple syrup in the gas tank.


    Over 9000 years ago, the internet gods' servers were overloaded with so much furry porn that they needed to borrow some bandwidth from their customers. So, they created JavaScript, a funtastic scripting language for the web browser. But that wasn't enough. JavaScript was limited in what it could do, so Microsoft decided to unleash upon the world ActiveX, Macromedia Flash, XML, Java, CSS, and all of the things that cause browser incompatibilities today. Later, all of these web technologies were called AJAX, after the shitty cleaning product.

    Some boring facts:

    1. There are LOADS of frameworks-libraries to handle TL;DR AJAX codes.
    2. You will be demotivated before writing AJAX codes.
    3. It's hard to handle errors using AJAX. That's why AJAX sites often return "something happened we are fixing #t" errors. It's a lie, they aren't really informed about which part of the code failed.
    4. You can't just click "back".
    5. It's incompatible with platforms.
    6. Using AJAX framework makes you dependent to the framework

    The Risks

    If you mix Ajax cleaner with bleach, you might become an hero. This is a true fact from chemistry science, as is (un)explained by these rubbery hallucinations:

    (If you close your eyes, you can still see them.)

    Ajax is a good substitute for cocaine. Hippies can't tell the difference.

    (Good shit.)

    This is an exact similarity to the fact that if you mix AJAX frameworks with cocaine, you might end up in a Web job which will make you want to be an hero.

    List of Ajax

    AJAX comes in many forms, such as:
