⚠️ 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.

    BWatch or /b/watch, as it should be called (not to be confused with Baywatch) is a program developed by an Australian programmer calling himself Insanemal. It allows a user to key in a URL and, once the settings are configured, the program will go through the thread, saving all the images in it.

    As of June 2007, /b/watch is at version v2.2, but version 3.0 is expected any day now. The features of /b/watch compared to just saving the images yourself are:

    • Ability to Watch threads until their death,
    • Renaming of images (Can keep numerals as with normal 4chan images, or in sets, such as 00001-00027.jpg)
    • Posting filter compatability (Download strictly either posts with a certain text added, or lacking it)
    • Filtering of sage posts (In 2 stages)

    The supposed features for v3.0 are:

    • Ability to search for RapidShare links (And hopefully other servers)
    • Improvements to the filter engine
    • Ability to work on other boards
    • Ability to rename images back to the name they were posted with

    In reality, if this program doesn't work for you then it's 99% likely to be a fault on your end. Any support questions can be thrown at the support email posted below.

    Chan Thread Watch

    In December 2007 !MNc99 added a new tool to his website, known as Chan Thread Watch. It can be found at http://sites.google.com/site/chanthreadwatch/. It boasts many features common to that of /b/watch, but is considered a different tool. CTW saves thread HTML and images with emphasis on getting the data (HTTPS support, multi-board support), however /b/watch focuses on the end result (Sage protection, XChan filtering, etc. etc.). CTW is generally easier to use and supports more boards.
