⚠️ 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!

You can help by people who delete shit, and vandalizing their user pages.

Lagdroid is a Java application running on top a neutered Linux distribution. Ironically, in the context of how Unix got its name, "Android" is quite appropriate; it is now completely androgynous. It was made popular by Google with their shitbrick the G1. Android runs on various devices, most notably just about any phone by HTC and the Motorola Droid. It's the new one-size-fits-all OS, and the glue holding many a marketing circlejerk together. Basically it's for basement dwellers too poor too buy a fucking iPhone.

- Pinch to zoom.
- Use Google Goggles to solve Sudoku
- Use Google Goggles to identify fucking everything.

What you can't do with it
- You can't use it with any iPod enabled device. Like you would want to anyways, not a big loss there. You can, however, plug it into any standard audio jack or USB port.
- Some devices can't be used with a Mac because it hasn't been approved by your Apple Genius, and nothing of value was lost.
- You can't use IRC on some 3G networks that only allow for secure connection. You can however IRC using WiFi or through 3G on browser based clients like Mibbit. You could also be 1337 and SSH in through a UNIX server and screen irssi you Mary. Nothing is more fulfilling than unleashing the power of gay.pl while you are driving.
Install it on an iPhone. Now you can.Suspended.

What you will be able to do with it in the future

- Use it with Google TV to run your porn apps.
- Divide by Zero (According to Gizmodo).
Just like Apple, Google also has a blacklist of apps, although they have yet to blacklist most of the shit apps that flood the Android Market everyday. Verizon, in particular, doesn't like any app that allows users to avoid paying their $20 add on fee for Wifi tethering. The average Android user is paying about $107 per month for service through Verizon Wireless, so fuck them.
- Easy Root was removed from thew market for stealing the source for the app from DMUpdate, a FREE rooting process.
- Android recently decided to remove a slew of Hitler and Nazi themed add-ons from the Market for being obscene in the eyes of Jews. No word yet on when the Star of David is going to be taken down for being offensive to the rest of the world.
ED Users on Making Apps
If for some in-fucking-credibly misguided reason you do decide to make an app, heed this warning; you will want to fucking shoot yourself half way through.
Android Kill Switch
On June 25, 2010, Google added a new remote feature to the Android Operating system: The Android Kill Switch. While Google defends this new backdoor program will be used for good to allow Google to delete shit apps off your Android phone, it is essentially Google's version of the Internet Kill Switch.
UPDATE: As a wise sage once predicted, Google has in fact used the kill switch. Google is an enemy of your freedom.
Oracle Gets Butthurt
In a move that seems like one part dickery and twenty parts stupid, Oracle, not mere months after acquiring Sun, have decided to sue Google over their use of Java as the primary development language for Android. If Oracle somehow wins this suit, it could mean the end of Java on Android. All things considered, this would not be the worst thing to happen considering Java is pure and utter shit. Besides, didn't Google make some other compiled language? Why the fuck don't they just use that? Anything is better than fucking Java.
How to Troll Androids users
Android, more so than any other OS, attracts unrivaled numbers of fanboys. Android users are very defensive about their phones, and tend to tell users of other phones how great android is even when nobody gives two shits. They also believe that rooting makes them computer gods. Because android users are so pointlessly in love with their phones, they make for easy trollng. Any of the following are effective both online and irl.
- Complain about the android platform being too fragmented.
- Say Apple's app store is better than android market, and be sure not to give any supporting evidence.
- Say iOS has better multitasking.
- Say they're to poor to afford an iPhone/blackberry.
- Tell them google is tracking everything they do with it and everywhere they go.
- Point out that root apps are taking advantage of serious security flaws, and that any other app could as well.
- Say that more apps are free on android because they suck dick.
- Tell them that the Motorola-Google merger will MAKE GOOGLE ONLY PRODUCE MOTOROLA PHONES AND WILL SCARE AWAY ALL OTHER MANUFACTURERS-hence destroying Android.
- Android users really hate Apple, so just say anything good about Apple
Bitch I got an Android
Who will use/buy this
- Software developers
- Megan Fox
- Oprah and by proxy, everyone who worships Oprah.
- People who can't live with out Flash/Porn (everyone)
