⚠️ 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!
During the month of November, 2004, dearasshole went on a recruiting drive. Instead of just encouraging their members to talk about it or posting on, they sent out large batches of membership invites to people who had never previously heard of the community. The resulting influx of people certainly bolstered the lagging community, but brought with it an inevitable dose of trolling.
Fireuzer and Kingdeadfish were but the first of many to post letters to the community and receive the vaunted "You're too much of an asshole" email from the moderator, with a subsequent ban. Over the following weeks this action was to be played out many times over, with the moderator later being reported as having claimed that the invites were the inside work of a troll and not dearasshole policy.
The community remained closed to membership for a long while, but is currently accepting new members on an approval basis, as if it's such a fucking privilege to be chosen for one of at least 100 angry-letters community on LJ. There are about two or three posts per month -- that's excitement, folks.
