⚠️ 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



    Cool3

    From Encyclopedia Dramatica
    Jump to navigation Jump to search

    Cool3 is a disgraced former Wikipedia sysop who had his account "compromised" by Gregory Kohs. Because the two were the same person.

    What Happened

    In January, the vandal-administrator MZMcBride gave a list of unguarded BLPs to his fuck buddy Greg Kohs of MyWikiBiz, Wikipedia critic and abuser of Jimbo Wales, to vandalize on the Wikipedia Review, not knowing that the Arbcommies were watching. As such, the Arbcommie Roger Davis forced MZMcBride to fork over the list he supplied. A checkuser was run on the sockpuppet accounts Kohs used to vandalize, and it was found that one of his sockpuppets was a sysop account. The account was immediately desysopped. MZMcBride was also sued in arbcom and had his admin rights revoked.

    Fallout

    In an attempt to improve its BLP situation, Wikipedia only manages to delete two of its own sysops. Well done!

    Eventually, the original Cool3 user returned under User:Cool three to request his sysop rights back. The angsty fags, however argued that he sold his own account. As a result, he stormed off in a butthurt rage.

    Quotes

    Cool3 reveals the truth about Wikipedia (from his user page):


     
     
    power-hungry teenagers without the social skills to survive in the real world spend their days posting on ANI in activity that reasonable men would consider either trolling or insanity. These socially-deficient people are the ones who rise up through the wiki-hierarchy to enjoy the trust and confidence of the Wikipedia community.

    Reads like the typical screed I've seen since my BBS days: "You didn't make me a moderatorgive me an admin bit! That means you're all power-hungry bastards! You'll be sorry I left!" As long as he's not making personal attacks, I'd say leave it so people can see they were right to vote no in his RfA.
