⚠️ 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!

Daniel J. Bernstein (DJB) is a l33t h4x0r and professor of mathematics at Rutgers University. He is the author of qmail and djbdns, a mailer and a DNS server noted for their secure design and association with epic trolling.
DJB was the source of much lulz on the OpenBSD mailing lists when he swooped in to defend qmail's licensing policy after Theo de Raadt removed it from OpenBSD. The resulting flamewar ended in the infamous rejoinder:

It has even been provided as a > package on several of the CD-ROMs. Why haven't you been objecting to it? No it has never been on the CD. The most restrictive source or binary license on the CD is the GPL. I don't think vim or pine or pico made it on either, since their licenses have tiny restrictions. > Hypocrite. > > ---Dan > Why do you sign your email twice?
