⚠️ 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.

    Backmasking is a technique artists use to add hidden messages to their music which can be discovered by listening to music backwards. This is rumored to be the only real way of finding messages from Satan himself and the Colonel's secret recipe of 11 herbs and spices. Perhaps this is the only good way of listening to modern music.

    We had been programmed. I knew I was going to do it. I was afraid. I didn’t want to die. It’s just as if I had no choice


    —Raymond Belknap, claiming he was reprogrammed after listening to Judas Priest

    Notable examples

    What the Beatles used to do it.

    The practice was popularized by the Beatles in their 1966 album Revolver. After listening to one of their songs backwards, if someone isn't praising Satan (e.g. non-Jew), there is something morally wrong with them.

    Since then other artists such as Pink Floyd have done this for the lulz, Queen, Iron Maiden and Judas Priest also tried but failed. Queen's attempt was nothing more than a simple message about smoking weed.

    turn me on dead man


    —The Beatles

    Oh here’s to my sweet Satan


    —Led Zeppelin

    Did mommy or daddy ever have to spank you?


    —The Mars Volta

    666 murder murder Jesus 666



    Wow, you must have an awful lot of free time on your hands


    —Weird Al Yankovic
