⚠️ 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



    Defriend

    From Encyclopedia Dramatica
    Jump to navigation Jump to search

    To "defriend" is to remove someone from your Friends list on any one of the many social networking sites that plague the internet (like those nasty lesions on your mother's naughty bits); it is tantamount (especially in the case of Livejournal) to "throwing down the gauntlet" and declaring one's friendship at an end. Unsurprisingly, many people consider defriending a severe blow to their pride and reputation, and thus the act of defriending tends to stir up a lot of Internet drama.

    Outside of Livejournal, it is a useful method of clearing the detritus that clogs one's Facebook or Twitter feed. Defriending Myspace "friends" is pointless, as only shitty local bands and aspiring models/actresses still use Myspace, and would hardly notice as neither of the aforementioned possess anything resembling human feelings.

    In any case, whether for the sake of lulz or perceived offense, defriending is always awesome—even when it happens to you.

    Common Reasons to Defriend Some Asshole

    Livejournal

    The typical LiveJournal User's response to defriending is defamation of the offending party, followed by attention whoring in an attempt to regain lost prestige or self-worth. In severe cases, threats of suicide are bandied about and claims of horrid diseases are made. Less stable victims of defriending usually post not only to LJ about the incident, but also talk about it endlessly on IRC and AIM. Particularly vindictive individuals, meanwhile, will often attempt to build conspiracies against offending party, working behind their backs to plot revenge, social ostracism and worse.

    Though many defriended LJ users like to craft complex reasons or motives for their removal (the more elaborate the motive, the more important the defriended user feels), in reality they were usually defriended because their posts were boring, or the defriender grew tired of ceaselessly validating their existence. Indeed, the act of defriending usually causes more drama than the reasons behind the actual act itself.
