⚠️ 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

    Bonzi Buddy was a Web 1.0 application by BONZI software that installed a talking purple monkey onto your desktop akin to Microsoft's Officer Assistant. Only instead of actually improving one's online experience as it's creators claimed it would, Bonzi Buddy just installed an assload of spyware and spammed the same crappy jokes all day.

    Lies. All lies.

    Bonzi Buddy is Spyware

    While the thought of giving your computer a personality with Bonzi Buddy seems like a pretty cool idea at first glance, the coolness goes right out the window when it installs six new search bars on your browser without asking. Not only did the http://bonzi-buddy.com effectively rape your computer with its arsenal of spyware, but none of its tools actually functioned. Simple tasks like searching your computer or sending an email through Bonzi Buddy would take forever and none of the jokes or facts that crapped out of his mouth were either funny or interesting. The makers of the monkey claimed that all of Bonzi Buddy's shortcomings were due to the fact that the free version had limited functionality and that users needed to buy the full version to get the program that actually worked. Though it's more likely that Bonzi Buddy sucked due to all of the programs extra baggage.

    It should also be noted that Bonzi Buddy was straight up impossible to remove from your computer once installed, which meant you were pretty much stuck with the fucker until he started getting picked up by anti-spyware programs.

    Did I mention that Bonzi Buddy is spyware?

    Bonzi Buddy In His Own Words

    The Death of Bonzi Buddy

    After it became glaringly apparent that Bonzi Buddy was in fact spyware, several prominent publications and websites put out scathing reviews of the monkey, including but not limited to PCWorld, BusinessWeek, Consumer Reports, Trend Micro and Symantec. BONZI software attempted to refute these claims but couldn't get their own browsers to open due to all the spyware that Bonzi Buddy had installed. Thus, after nearly 7 years, two lawsuits (including one that cost BONZI $75,000), and countless disappointed users, Bonzi Buddy was discontinued.

    Rebirth

    On Feburary 1, 2014, Vinesauce fag "exinthevatican" posted a video of himself destroying a Windows XP computer. During this Godawful stream, the purple ape was downloaded and caused the misery 10x that of receiving anal sex from a bull.

    BonziAdventure

    Some people actually have the audacity to make severely autistic web-series based around the purple ape, as demonstrated in BonziAdventure. Utilizes watermarked stock photos snatched from Google Images, background music from Banjo Kazooie, and conveys a completely original storyline that reeks of assburgers. The fucktard responsible for making this, YouTube Favicon.png KatzenGaming, is just another unfunny, lonely virgin fag spreading cancer-inducing videos such as MLG montages, and a variety of Forced Memes across the Tubes. BonziAdventure only had one episode, and is believed to have been discontinued.
