⚠️ 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!
BitTorrent is a peer-to-peer porn-centric file sharing protocol used by basement dwelling virgins to download massive amounts of furfuckery and yiffporn. It is probably the most common protocol for transferring the insanely large folders of yaoi back and forth over the internet. Other common files that are transferred over the bittorrent protocol include hentai, tentacle rape porn, amputee porn, pedoporn, dutch porn, and snuff porn. It is estimated that over 35% of the internet’s traffic is found on the BitTorrent protocol. Because sharing is enforced, it will rape your bandwidth-capped USA-tier internet connection so good your ISP will probably cock block you: this is expected and necessary for the evolution of each torrent. The better quality the torrent, the better it is seeded. If you pick a 2kB/s torrent, you're doing it wrong.

Bittorrent was created in 2001 by programmer Bram Cohen who kept this magic under wraps for two months. Finally, after realizing that he would need more people using the protocol so that he could download his warez, loli, and illegally shared music files faster, he uncorked this genie from its bottle and the internet has not been the same since.
How BitTorrent Works
The initial owner of a porn file will make what is called a torrent. He then uses this torrent to seed his perversity to other perverts around the world. Each pervert who downloads the initial seed also uploads the pornographic data at the same time, this leads to a very fast and efficient way to distribute your Japanese vomit porn to all of your friends. As each downloader completes the initial seed, they also begin seeding the files. This exponentially increases the downloading speed for the rest of the depraved old men who are looking for pictures or videos of your little sister dancing with a Sharpie in her ass in front of her webcam. The more seeds there are, the faster you get to beat off. Don't get demotivated after downloading an antivirus and realizing it has a virus after infecting your pc because you couldn't scan the antivirus setup because you didn't have an antivirus and you were already attempting to have one and you infected your pc because you didn't have an antivirus when you're looking for one.
What the fuck am I reading???
Anyway, when we work together, as long as there's just one extra guy seeding, it can't be shut down. That's the beauty of it.
There are approximately eleven-billion Bittorrent clients available. Here is a brief list of popular clients:
|Client||What can you get with it?||Is it a proprietary FBI backdoor?|
|BitTorrent||porn, movies, warez, mp3s||Yes|
|ABC||porn, movies, warez,mp3s||No|
|Arctic Torrent||porn, movies, warez,mp3s||No. Do not use this for anything outside of LAN, it's old and doesn't work properly these days. Otherwise if you're using LAN then this is a great client, the source is available as well.|
|BitComet||porn, movies, warez,mp3s||Yes|
|BitLord||porn, movies, warez,mp3s||Yes|
|BitTornado||porn, movies, warez,mp3s||Yes|
|Deluge||porn, movies, warez,mp3s||No|
|Gnome Bittorrent||porn, movies, warez,mp3s||No|
|porn, movies, warez,mp3s||Most definitely Yes|
|rtorrent||porn, movies, warez,mp3s||No|
|Transmission||porn, movies, warez,mp3s||No|
|Tixati||porn, movies, warez,mp3s||No, works much like a more Windows inclined version of Transmission. Better than µTorrent in some instances despite no source being available.|
|µTorrent (Pronounced "muTorrent")||porn, movies, warez,mp3s||Just got acquired by BitTorrent Corporation and thanks to uDP favors µTorrent connections over others. Yes.|
|Vuze||porn, movies, warez,mp3s||It runs on Java. Java is proprietary. Yes.|
How to properly create a torrent
- If video content, edit in a title-credit at the beginning, something like "RiPpEd bY z3r0c00l" with some nickelback playing over some CG fire in the background. Alternatively place a high-contrast watermark in one of the corners or as a bar at the bottom all throughout the feature (bonus points if it's animated!)
- If a DVD-R/ISO image, make sure it's PAL full-screen and that you don't mention that in the description. Also take out all the extras and commentary, since people only download DVD-R images because they want a 4GB mpeg with a menu.
- Include a couple text and .nfo files that contain information on where to find you and your friends on IRC.
- RAR everything, split up into a 99 files. Everyone will be on broadband but you're actually doing everyone a favor by shaving off those 2 megabytes. This will ensure that people have the same content on their hard drive twice so the original files can still be seeded. If you are scene this is mandatory.
- Password that fucker with no less than 30 characters and have a long list of things people have to do to get the password (most likely clicking your ads somewhere). Why should they get your shit for free?
- Attach your hacker alias to the resulting torrent's filename, because ripping shit is only getting harder, and people need to know who rules the school (you do).
How to properly name content
- Misspelling is important
- Don't Use Correct Case When Naming Titles. Notice that "when" here is capitalized. This is grammatically incorrect and is how it should be done.
- Include apostrophes and other escaped characters such as exclamation marks and ampersands.
- The folder should be named after the album and not contain the artist's name or year.
- Songs should not contain the track numbers at the beginning of the filename.
- Series folder names should be just the season name. Example: My Little Pony Season 2 should be named Season 2, not My.Little.Pony.S02.720p.HDTV.x264
- News-related shows should be named according to the season and episode number, not the date.
Video Quality Designation
- If shot with a camera from a seat in the theater, it is TS.
- If shot from the projection booth with a high quality camera and later synced with a direct audio source then it is a DVDSCR.
- If it is a rip from a DVD meant to go to the academy (watermarked, other video irregularities) then it is a DVDRIP
- If it was ripped from a commercial DVD or bluray for consumers then it has no designation and your description shouldn't include screenshots.
Opponents of BitTorrent
Anybody smart enough to get out of the http and ftp league will, with any luck, make Bittorrent his preferred way of attaining pr0n. Luckily, it doesn't take much brains, and due to frequent copyright crackdowns Bittorrent is a drama generator like no other. If it gets shut down the world would witness a drama explosion of such epic magnitude and proportion that Chernobyl would look like a urinal cake in comparison.
In most countries, it is highly illegal to distribute copyrighted material without the permission of the copyright holder. Because of the potential for people to try music albums or watch movies prior to purchasing them, copyright holders hate Bittorrent. Because of Bittorrent, users are now capable of sifting through the 99% crap that copyright holders dish out on the unsuspecting public, and actually enjoy what they watch or listen to.
Many opponents of the Bittorrent protocol like to use the argument that "You wouldn't download a car" as an example of why a person should not use a Bittorrent client to download illegal files. This argument is rather silly though, considering the fact that if you actually used the Bittorrent protocol to download a car, you could quite possibly end up dead or severely injured due to an automobile flying out of your router. Also, if it were possible, yes, yes you would. Because if making an exact replica of the car were possible, the owner wouldn't give a fuck if you duplicated it - as opposed to actually stealing it from their possession.
BitTorrent is slow, time-consuming and insecure. Even if you use a private tracker (Demonoid is not a private tracker dipshit). In the other hand, HTTP, which was invented 7 years prior to BitTorrent, offers a higher speed download and upload via SSL Protocol (makes you immune, really). But it requires money. Money requires income. Income requires job. Job requires skill. Skill... We'll leave it at that.
Except that's wrong. When you go with a torrent, you are receiving packets from probably a hundred different people seeding the torrent. With HTTP, it's basically a torrent with exactly one seed.
<Aaron> just remember. it's ok to steal hearts, why isn't it ok to steal photoshop? without hearts we die. Doesn't that seem more sacred?
Aaron... YOU ARE A PIRATE!!!
Even IRC has pirates:
«10:32:05» Aaron: !piracy «10:32:06» fayzeshyfft: YARRRRRRR, you're a pirate now Aaron ! http://www.demonoid.com/ (IT'S BACK BITCHES!!!) & http://thepiratebay.org/ & http://scrapetorrent.com/ & http://torrentreactor.net/ & http://torrentbox.com/ & http://www.fulldls.com/ & http://www.completorrent.com/ & http://torrents.to/ & http://www.btmon.com/ & http://btjunkie.org/ & http://isohunt.com/ & http://sumotorrent.com/
Just what is a torrent tracker? A Bittorrent tracker is a main server which assists you in downloading all the CP and Dirty Sanchez porn you could ever imagine. A tracker will serve your IP to random people who want to fap to the same porn that you do. Be careful, Mike Sandy can get a hold of your IP. The owners of such Tracker servers feel it necessary to remind you that downloading copyright software, movies, music, and porn is an illegal offense, and that they do not actually have any of those files on the server.
A private tracker is a tracker that only snobs can use. They are generally restricted by passwords and the users are carefully watched to ensure that they are breaking the law just as much as everybody else is. Private trackers usually require an invite code to join which can only be obtained by from a Member of said private tracker site. Occasionally some private tracker sites might "open" up for a weekend or so where people can join without needing an invite code.
Last Thursday it was determined by the courts that it is illegal to profit from private tracker sites so instead private sites rely heavily on donations from its members to stay on teh interwebz. Donations are also one way of obtaining invite codes that you can give to random strangers you meet on the internet. You also can get upload credit added to your ratio, a small jew gold star next to your name which will grow your e-penis.
Torrents Day/Happy Torrents Day"
For those unfamiliar, "Happy Torrents Day" is a "celebration of torrenting" started by KickassTorrents user "Mr. Pink" on the original (now-seized) incarnation of KAT wayyyy back in 2011. Torrents Day arrives every March 30th, with tons of torrent uploaders and releasers uploading torrents to KAT and other torrent sites, and seeding the hell out of them. (If you don't seed ur torrents, you're literal scum and need to Die in a fire.) In addition - there is a soundtrack to each year's celebration put together by users of KAT on their forum.

Popular BitTorrent Sites (what you're reading this for)
Just as there are several BitTorrent clients to download your sick fetish porn, there are also several BitTorrent tracker sites to choose from. Here is a brief (and we mean really brief) list of active tracker sites.
What Is Bittorrent To You?
Bittorrent is a lot of things to a lot of people. The protocol has opened up the internet to millions of users.
