⚠️ 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!
Arcturus (Full name interwebz name: Arcturus .J. Kirwin) is Cbee's lover and a furry. He/she/it also goes by the name Fiscal, AJKirwin or Nicolyrezk and is usually found schmoozing at #E621 on the Darkmyst servers. He may be fucking KurtBatz, considering their undying obsession for each other.
Until recently Arcturus was the owner of the website http:///www.e621.net, basically an image dump of furry images taken from wherever its users felt like it. Mostly Furaffinity and DeviantArt and organising them by metatags. Essentially a poor mans fchan (not that fchan isn't isn't particularly poor already anyhow). Why put effort into making a site when you can make a perfectly good one by stealing everyone elses shit, eh? Arcturus' art dumping was eventually noticed by one Thaily Brimstone (where the fuck do they get these names?) who noticed her art on the site and bitched about it on the LJ group here after that many other members discovered their art there and began to complain en masse to Arcturus and started waving their E-lawyers about and crying. Arcturus' initial response to ignore them fell through when they went past him and started crying directly to his host which didn't get very far either.
This status quo was maintained until a TARTlet called RikuTida entered the frey and realised that whining about EULA breaches wasn't getting them shit. His solution? THAT SITE'S PACKING CP. Of course CP is the magical word that gets sites shut down in an instant as the hosts want to cover their asses ASAP.
—Arcturus (Still makes you a Furfag)
The full (successful) strategy was explained to Arcturus in an E-mail that can be read here
Of course, this has spawned this:  where Arcturus complains about "why I have a problem with some artists", which he brought on himself for choosing to deal with OMGCOPYRIGHT furry artists in the first place.
An example of an artist's communication with Arcturus:
After another furry, Insane Kangaroo, reported e621.net also for CP in 2010 to get things their way, Arcturus gave up on running e621.net
Fucking Furries (literally)
Based in Reading, Wales, Arcturus has been enjoying life in sweet buttfucking harmony with Cbee or Cookie before returning to the UK he/she/it quite literally lives in his/her/it's parents basement and actually had plans on having a gay marriage to long-time internet e-boyfriend Kemru/Koekje/Maou in October of 2007, he flew all the way to fucking America for this. But to be honest, as hideous and pathetic as these creatures are, it's probably better not to think about it.
"Whiney Artist Award"
Arcturus had his ass buddy, Cbee, make an "award" certificate for artists he considered "whiny" about their DMCA requests. This unfortunately resulted in even MOAR whining and Arcturus was forced to take his "award" down to save face.
FUCKING LEAVING FA!!!
Needless to say, Arcturus was looking for a fuzzy warm hugbox. Unfortunately, instead of getting the many e-hugs that he so desperately hoped for, he got over 9000 users who lol'd and told him to leave.
This resulted in some valiant white-knighting (usually in the form of "Re-posting art without artist permission is NOT illegal!!! Copyright violation is NOT theft!!!", but mostly lol.
As predicted by everyone who wasn't looking to suck Arcturus' cock, Arcturus remained on FA despite the mass plea for him to GTFO, so he may continue to post emo journals and stolen art.
Threats from Anonymous
Arcturus was allegedly threatened by an Anonymous person back in 2006 and posted this image of the letter and bag of white powder he received in the mail. Upon receiving the package, he quickly freaked out, posting a whinyscared message on his livejournal. After calling police on advice of several fellow furfags, he was rightly deemed not important enough to worry about by the police and told to summarily fuck off.
