⚠️ 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!
The Carr-Benkler Wager
The Carr-Benkler Wager is a wager between Wikipedia's best troll Nicholas Carr and Yochai Benkler about the pricing of collective production of content on Web sites. The wager runs from 2006-07-19 until approximately 2011-07-19. Carr argues that collective content production will be priced. The Carr-Benkler wager is the epitome of the e-war between the pro-"Web 2.0" and the anti-"Web 2.0" (aka "'Web 2.0' sucks") people.
Examples of how "Web 2.0" is about to get roasted
On TOW, the first sign of marketization of content production is its bounty board, where people are allowed to exchange money and Wikipedia edits. The next step is every Wikipedia troll's and "vandal"'s dream: Wikipedia with contextual advertising and less bureaucratic fucking, or dissolution of Wikimedia.
