⚠️ 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

    Brute Forcing

    From Encyclopedia Dramatica
    Jump to navigation Jump to search
    Police.gif FACT ALERT:
    This is serious shit and has been known to cause drama and IRL Ban Hammers. Actually doing this might get you v&. The information on page is provided for educational purposes only.

    Brute Forcing is a method of cracking passwords that involves rotating through over 9000 randomized strings until the correct one is discovered. It is only used when you're shit outta luck and can't think of a better way to get into that friend of a friend that promised to suck your dick ex's facebook account. There are two forms of brute force attacks: one is dictionary style, where many pre-made strings are tried, while the other creates random strings from numbers and/or integers. The former is faster, but does not always work, while the latter is so slow it made its debut on The Slow Mo Guys but will eventually get it.

    Note: If you're slapping this bad boi on a server that isn't run on a toaster from china, all brute force attacks are logged and can get you v&/b&, so if you are going to brute, be sure that:

    • The admins never check logs.
    • The server is on some poorly managed shitty shared host.
    • You do it during a time of the day when traffic is high (for high traffic addresses.)
    • You do it during a DDoS attack (when admins won't be able to tell what the fuck is happening.)


    A file that contains a large number of words. Used for brute forcing passwords. Normally in a .txt format or some other easily readable and editable format.

    This RAR file contains another RAR, which contains 43 text files. Each one contains 100,000,000 lines of words; that's 4,300,000,000 (4.3 billion) combinations.

    I included a merge script for those who are disabled and can't cat. Just go to the /mergeLinks/ directory and ./merge.sh
    It will also delete the original (un-merged) files. DO NOT OPEN THE TEXT FILE WHEN MERGED.

    You will need approximately 30 gigabytes of free space to extract this.
