⚠️ 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

    The banbot in action
    Last Thursday, Yiri ported the banbot to RL.

    The banbot is a bot authored by aempirei. It joins every public channel on a given IRC network and proceeds to announce the existence of Bantown. It then /invites every user it encounters to #bantown and adds their nick to its queue.

    When a nick in the queue joins bantown, it bans them.

    The banbot sometimes leads to interesting dialogue with the administrators of the largest IRC networks in the world:

      01:07 <@oclet> 22:05 -!- Irssi: Starting query in mzima with Lindy_
      01:07 <@oclet> 22:05 <Lindy_> my want to stop spamming
      01:07 <@oclet> 22:06 <oclet> i am pleading to you
      01:07 <@oclet> 22:06 <oclet> to allow us to continue spamming
      01:07 <@oclet> 22:06 <oclet> we are sad internet losers
      01:07 <@oclet> 22:06 <oclet> and find this to be fairly entertaining
      01:07 <@oclet> 22:07 <Lindy_> then find another network
      01:07 <@oclet> 22:07 <Lindy_> I bet you do.
      01:07 <@oclet> 22:07 <oclet> we're doing it on 3 other networks as well
      01:07 <@oclet> 22:07 <Lindy_> just dont do it on mine
      01:08 <@oclet> 22:07 <Lindy_> humor someone else
      01:08 <@oclet> 22:07 <oclet> we'll let you hang out there

      01:08 <@sdf-> hhahah
      01:08 <@sdf-> promise her +v

    root66 was never in Bantown.

    In the future, an advanced version of the Banbot will serve as Matt LeBlanc's bodyguard

    You heard me! Never in Bantown. It's a lie!

    Banbot vs Freenode

      18:37 <@BearPerson> freenode is a network about open-source software and other projects of peers helping peers
      18:37 -%- mode/#bant0wn [-bb *[email protected] *!*@*] by oclet
      18:37 <@oclet> i heard it was for warez
      18:37 <@oclet> and pron
      18:37 <@BearPerson> you're quite welcome to hang out in the support channels and get or provide support
      18:38 <@BearPerson> but we're a bit harsh about warez and spam
      18:38 <@oclet> yeah me too
      18:38 <@oclet> i hate when people dont pay for software
      18:38 <@BearPerson> check out http://irc.netsplit.de/networks/
      18:38 <@oclet> it makes me want to slice my dong with a razor blade
      18:38 <@BearPerson> that's probably the most complete list of IRC networks out there
      18:39 <@BearPerson> I'm sure you'll find a network that is less harsh about this sort of stuff
      18:39 <@oclet> sweet. wanna harass quakenet with me?
      18:39 <@oclet> it will be teh l0lz
      18:40 <@BearPerson> at least, it will be more appropriate ;-)
      18:40 <@BearPerson> you see, quakenet is more IRC and "chaos" oriented than freenode, though not as much as EFnet
      18:41 <@BearPerson> freenode is neutral territory. We're here to provide a place for friendly support, which you can use or provide if you want
      18:42 <@BearPerson> but we can't be that place if we're constantly running after spammers and cleaning up channel wars
      18:42 <@oclet> i'm just here for the pr0n and the warez
      18:42 <@oclet> i dont know anything about spam
      18:42 <@BearPerson> then you're on the wrong network
      18:42 <@oclet> are you a furry?
      18:45 <@BearPerson> just keep this off freenode please, okay?
      18:45 <@oclet> sure
      18:45 <@oclet> tell me when you take the ban off of tor
      18:45 <@oclet> so i can do it again
