⚠️ 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!
Constructive criticism is perhaps one of the lulziest forms of trolling on the internet, particularly in online shitholes much like DeviantART, where people submit their work online. In constructive criticism, one looks at artwork and finds its flaws and merits (ignoring this is what makes you a troll), which normally results in the offended rallying their friends to try and intimidate said critic into kissing the victim's ass.
Normally the constructive critic tries to play educator, offering tidbits on anatomy, lighting, color theory and all other components that make art good. The original idea behind the concept was to be a supportive collaborator that kindly and politely improves them through deconstructive analysis rather than just saying "it's shit", but what most people really mean when they ask for "concrit" is "lavish praise onto me while maybe mentioning one teensy little problem for 'balance.'"
As one can guess, offering advice is pointless as it will be ignored and you'll be the subject of many a call out journal on whatever art site you happen to be on. As a result, you should only offer constructive criticism for the lulz; in fact, given the right target, you'll even look like the good guy! The results of such actions do create some of the best drama in the world.
Excuses shitty artists make when critiqued
- "If you can do better then show me."
- "It's my style."
- "It is emotional art."
- "I'm just learning."
- How do you know what I'm feeling, they're my words. Used by the butthurt when critiquing poetry.
- My teacher said it was good
- "I'm only 13."
- I'm leaving this site forever cuz none of you appreciate me.
- "I don't care, it is fun this way."
- "Look at your gallery, it's empty lol! You have no right to criticize me."
- Comment hidden by poster.
- "I didn't ask for critique."
