⚠️ 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



    Compuserve

    From Encyclopedia Dramatica

    The inventor of Compuserve.

    Compuserve was the first real internets for people like average Joe and Jane. It was first created in 1969 as a network by some greasy nerds (Jeffrey Wilkins, Harry Gard, Dr. John R. Goltz, Sandy Trevor, Doug Chinnock, and Larry Shelley).

    Back in those days they didn't really have much computing power, nothing like what we have today with the Intel Pentium II or AMD. No, instead they worked with such machines as the DEC PDP-15 and had to work until the 1980 when the 386 computer and Windows made computers much easier and affordable so people could actually use their dial up network. It was during this time when you could log on to the main screen and use a primitive E-mail system.

    You needed to remember your address and your friends. For example 23674,[email protected] might be your mother's e-mail address or not. Long before the age of relational databases, Compuserve was in development for eleven or more years.

    Some time later this thing called AOL came around and it was better. It had porn and cyber sex with 16 year old girls. AOL eventually purchased all of Compuserve and it slowly melted away into cyberspace forever.
