Thizz in peace, our hyphy overlord.

Welcome to the Thizzlehat Junction Center. This is your place to mention news and anything needing adminly attention. You can also use the shortcut TJC.

While you wait for attention, have a look at what needs to be done around here by clicking the shiny blue links below.

Real-time discussion about ED content and/or help from an ED Sysop can be found at #wiki and #ed on IRC. Check your fear, drama and faggotry at the door.


About ED

Fashioned in the spirit of Ambrose Bierce's The Devil's Dictionary, Encyclopedia Dramatica's purpose is to provide a central catalog for the e-public to view parody and satire of drama, memes, e-pals, and other interesting happenings on the Internets. Our goal is to provide comprehensive, reference-style parody, to poke fun at everyone and everything. You can read more about the origin of Encyclopedia Dramatica in our About section.


Policy

Before making any contributions, be sure you have read over all of our policies. We will not hesitate to revert any idiotic edits and call you out for your stupidity.

Ways to Help


User Groups

See the User Group Rights page showing the rights of the users of each group. The group you're in dictates what your privileges are on ED.

Users

All are welcome, as long as you read and agree to the General disclaimer. The only real requirement is to create an emailconfirmed account to edit articles. ED doesn't support anonymous editing. (IP addresses)


General
  • Got a lulzworthy subject you feel needs to be written about? Submit it to the Needed/Proposed page and someone might pick it up. Make sure you check to see if there's already an article about the subject first.


Writing
  • Write an article. This is the best thing you can do for ED.
  • Check the Bad New Articles portal to see if there's anything that ought to be expanded or cleaned up.
  • Check the list of wanted articles. This is automatically generated when two or more pages contain links to a page that doesn't yet exist.


Front page


Images
  • Add images to articles, or upload better versions of wanted images. Make sure you give your image a detailed name instead of a bunch of symbols or numbers so search engines can actually find them and link to them easier.
  • Browse though unused images and files and find homes for them. Do not delete or put death notices on duplicate images, use the {{duplicate}} template instead.


Maintenance
  • Categorize articles. We have a list of existing categories and a list of uncategorized articles. To add an article to a category, click that page's edit link and at the bottom of the entry, type [[Category:'''(name of category)''']] and click "Save Page." Use the "Show Preview" button to make sure you typed a category that exists (red links mean you failed). Do not create new categories.
  • Rotate a Portal. Seriously, this would be highly appreciated. The goal is to have each one changed once every two weeks or so. Anyone can do this.


Request editor privileges

If you're interested in helping out further, request editor privs, assuming you've been around for a couple months or have otherwise proved yourself.


SysOp & Editor Tasks

Editors

Editors are able to move and edit protected pages. They are expected to help maintain the Main Page. If you're a recently promoted editor and are unsure about something, ask for assistance. Don't be afraid of making mistakes.

  • Check to make sure all the XOTN are set for the Main Page
  • Review NewFiles for content that violates ED Policy. Editors can tag content with {{delete}}.


Administrators

Administrators have all of the Editor tools, along with the ability to delete pages, edit the user interface, and ræp users. If you have any questions about anything on ED, talk to them. They're here to help you.

  • Also, all of the Editor tasks apply to you as well.


TJC Archives

STAFF SUGGESTS NEEDED ARTICLES

Police.gif Don't archive this section, simply delete resolved entries.
  • Other staff pls elaborate on this, maybe keep it at the top of the TJC indefinitely. No matter how small the meme or internet event, we need a place to be new user's muse for writing articles. Please add to this list, and the next person who archives the TJC leave this post at the top please. --Mantequilla (talk) 00:51, 7 May 2015 (EDT)
LIST
  1. Hate speech: a crime in certain shithole countries, the concept of punishing people for hate speech is gaining a foothold in America.
  2. Adpocalypse: YouTube's ever-changing content guidelines for monetization, often applied arbitrarily. Now probably irrelevant because they are openly censoring nowadays
  3. MAGA hat. There have now been several violent or lulzy events around this particular hat. it's either a meme or a meme component, and now that people are comparing it to the swastika and the white hood of the KKK, it seems logical to have an article on the object that launched a thousand hurt butts.
  4. Ilhan Omar - Congress' token sandnigger. Good entertainment value bcs she bamboozles teh Jew by making ludicrous pro-SJW comments (happy merchants) and then denouncing Israel (unhappy merchants). Also, it's probably just a matter of time till some hick with a sniperscope tries to rub her out for being a terrorist.
  5. Groyper, and its variants like Marvs and Apus, and related terms like cozy. :^)
  6. Coalfax, a now censored website that caused great butthurt.

File:Information icon.png

hi, i tried to upload a thumb of File:Information icon.png but it prevented me because:

   
 
This page has been protected from editing because it is transcluded in the following pages, which are protected with the "cascading" option turned on:

Encyclopedia Dramatica:Quote of the Now/Archive 1 Encyclopedia Dramatica:Picture of the Now/2012
 


 
 

so i went to turn off cascading protection because it shouldn't be used except temporarily and for stuff like front page etc., but got this error:

   
 
You do not have permission to edit this page, for the following reason:

This page has been protected to prevent editing or other actions.

You can view and copy the source of this page.
 


 
 

would u plz make it so i can edit protected pages, and so i can turn on/off page protection plz? xo -hipcrime Emote Pop tart cat.gif 06:32, 28 February 2020 (UTC)

Html2Wiki for Wayback pages

there's an extension called HTML2Wiki for MediaWiki that could be useful to convert pages found at Archive.org but the edit tab isnt archived so the wikitext is unavailable. i think this would be used to generate wikitext to rescue pages without having to do it manually. for instance "The_Great_ED_Civil_War_of_2018" is archived but not the edit tab. it can be composed manually but it's a pain in the neck. just a thought. :^) -hipcrime Emote Pop tart cat.gif 00:44, 29 February 2020 (UTC)

Returning oldfag janitor from previous ED

Glad to see ED continues to survive dumbfucks trying to rape it to death no matter what.

So What Did You Decide?

I noticed my article is absent, so I'm perfectly fine with just ignoring you all outright and letting you do... whatever.

If you want shit restored though, well, you're gonna have to make me an admin for that. Which means I'm gonna promote the shit out of all my friends in the VotN section every chance I get. Well, maybe "friends" is too strong a word, like TheQuartering for example, I don't really like him, but I'd still give him play if he's got some good videos. Dick, Nerkish, Ya Boi Zack, Nyanners, Bearing, EVS, Rageaholic, Metokur, Mark, Gundam, Chris, Gigguk, Critical Drinker, Dankula, Matt Christiansen, Dave Cullen, etc, etc.

In exchange I can restore, well... Grumpy Cat ... Gersh Kuntzman ...everything that looks like that. It looks like the only stuff that wasn't destroyed was the material uploaded with my old UMadBro account, which was all new stuff. Unfortunately there is one minor little problem, which was all the material I uploaded on my original account was destroyed... and like 20% of all that wasn't new material, it was actually reuploads of old/original material... which I was able to restore from the thumbnails, running an image search through my own archives. But the idiot who destroyed them caused this new version to have nothing. Even the original thumbnails are now destroyed and since the file names were different in my archive... well, you can see the dilemma. I can try and restore that stuff as best I can, but a significant chunk may just be lost forever.

Anyway, I'll leave it up to you. Like I said, as long as there's no article about me I can just ignore you. If you want me restore shit and write articles... gonna have to make me an admin and yer gonna have to put up with me plugging my friends (or really anyone whose got good videos).

--ODS (talk) 03:58, 4 March 2020 (UTC)

We're restoring your article and we aren't making you an admin. Now go suck a cock, Matty. — GirlOnInternet SquiglySmall.png 04:37, 4 March 2020 (UTC)
Oh, I see. I thought there was some kind of mutual understanding or something (going by the e-mails)... guess I was mistaken.
Well, no problem, it's not like I can't keep obliterating the wiki for... as many times as it takes. Let's see, who am I targeting now... oh yes... Vincent Canfield. He's the current owner of all the shit you're operating off of.

Bryan See's shitty attack article

Bryan See is a banned editor, User:BDSee. He's severely mentally ill - has his own ED article; real name: Bryan Dunsheng See.

He was recently suspended on Knowyourmemes for creating shitty attack articles, and I noticed he's joined to do same here:

RedSee.png TheBryanSee (talk) 12:58, 4 March 2020 (UTC)

I've got banned from Reddit two times by Wyvernkeeper and JustARandommer. Both of them part of the Red-Brown coalition that's formed behind Putin and going to deliver another term for Donald Trump. -- BryanSee (talk) 13:10, 4 March 2020 (UTC)


Is content still being updated

Or will certain articles need to be redone entirely? I was proud of my Joe Cumia page and wondered if I needed to redo it or would it come back on its own. MeetTheMedic (talk)

i think that what's here is all that made it. -hipcrime Emote Pop tart cat.gif 19:26, 7 March 2020 (UTC)
reeeeeeee. I'll try and contribute some stuff, I have a lot of The Quartering spaghetti backed-up so that can get restored, might have a few other things on file. MeetTheMedic (talk)

Formatting options

Why can't i see any formatting options when i edit articles? Did the owner disable that or something? --Niglord (talk) 13:56, 5 March 2020 (UTC)

Would be nice to enable visual editor. Meanwhile learn the markup. Visual editor is still very buggy. Zagan (talk) 19:34, 7 March 2020 (UTC)

All of his contributions are either CP or borderline CP. It's the third time we have to remove them. Zagan (talk) 20:28, 7 March 2020 (UTC)

we already nuked his images from the database didnt we?

helpful mod priv additions

i get that some stuff has been removed from mods because of previous abuse (changing user rights and stuff), but there's some stuff that was changed that was pretty useful and i don't think can really be abused

  • ability to unblock oneself, (unblockself) (not really too useful but it's also not something that can be abused)
  • ability to fully protect pages (protect) (i don't see how this could be abused, we can already block them up to autoconfirmed level, not sure why not up to mod level)
    • also ability to edit protected pages (editprotected)
  • view deleted pages, text, history, etc (deletedhistory, deletedtext) (again, i don't see how this could be abused, we can already restore pages)
  • delete and undelete specific revisions of pages (deleterevision) (really useful for removing spam and dox)
    • also delete and undelete specific log entries (deletelogentry) (i'm guessing this means deleting summaries of pages? in which case yeah this would also be really useful)
  • the nuke function was also mentioned further up which would be nice

plz bring back kthxbai SCHNITZEL RADDA RADDASchnitzel2.jpg 00:33, 8 March 2020 (UTC)

Also being able to edit templates would be great Zagan (talk) 00:12, 9 March 2020 (UTC)
I'll look into getting these done tonight - I'm gay QRTransNew.png 04:31, 9 March 2020 (UTC)
Also Schnitzel dox is fully allowed now, please check the updated rules. - I'm gay QRTransNew.png 08:55, 9 March 2020 (UTC)
  • really? that doesn't seem like a good idea but i guess i don't run the wiki so it's your call. but i'm assuming that dox of underage people still isn't allowed, right? SCHNITZEL RADDA RADDASchnitzel2.jpg 17:04, 9 March 2020 (UTC)
Nothing gets taken down unless it violates a legitimate law within the state of Nevada. Posting SSN's, Addresses, and otherwise are legally recognized. Doxing of anyone stays up unless it's specifically an attack stub (just the dox with little or no content) or the dox is wrong. We are also from this point forward no longer concerned with the threat of civil lawsuits since Encyclopedia Dramatica is an LLC. Which means that even if sued they can only take the assets owned by the company and not my own. Leaving us/me available to continue operations. - I'm gay QRTransNew.png 04:36, 10 March 2020 (UTC)

Kinda what Schnitzel said. Captcha is done by Google so there's no settings I can tweak honestly.

This monumentally shitty attack article - What do?

Braeburned has absolutely zero lulz, no drama, half the external links are dead, and it doesn't even mention what this guy does. It's just a paragraph of "I hate this nobody Brony he's gay and a virgin lol", a really shitty MSPaint edit, and a pointless list of random names. Unless we can actually dig up something lulzy or noteworthy about this guy, which probably won't happen since the article has sat that way for about five years, we should just scrub it and redirect it to Brony. As it stands now it looks like Exhibit A. Fartkontrol (talk) 22:18, 18 March 2020 (UTC)

Rita

I'm trying to resurrect Rita but am getting errors. The current version doesn't exist, yet it has revision histories, and when I tried to just copy an old version to recreate it I get an error that says "Edit conflict: Someone else has changed this page since you started editing it. The upper text area contains the page text as it currently exists. Your changes are shown in the lower text area. You will have to merge your changes into the existing text. Only the text in the upper text area will be saved when you press "Save changes"."

If anyone knows how to get around this, the version I was trying to use to recreate it is in my sandbox. Fartkontrol =3 (talk) 23:24, 27 March 2020 (UTC)

Just checked this out. When I went to create the new page it gave the following message above the editing box.
    • The revision #0 of the page named "Rita" does not exist.
    • This is usually caused by following an outdated history link to a page that has been deleted. Details can be found in the deletion log.
I tried to create the page and I got the same error as Fartkontrol. TheMan (talk) 04:17, 29 March 2020 (UTC)

It seems some of the template vandalism done by User:Peely_Gets_Peeled was never reverted. A lot of the templates look fine if you go to the page itself like Template:Foxnews or Template:Drugs, but when used in articles they still show the copypasta spam. You can see it in effect in pages like INTERNET HATE MACHINE for Foxnews and Caffeine for Drugs. Fartkontrol =3 (talk) 01:28, 3 April 2020 (UTC)

no need to flush anything just purge the cache. add ?action=purge at the end of the URL Zagan (talk) 15:26, 23 April 2020 (UTC)
Is there a way to do a mass purge? Even when you purge the template cache, every individual page that template appeared on will still show the vandalized version and purging every page one-by-one is way too much work Fartkontrol =3 (talk) 17:17, 23 April 2020 (UTC)
Also (sorry about the double-edit; I just found this out now) ?action=purge doesn't seem to be working at all anymore. The OK button to actually do it doesn't seem to appear anymore. Dunno if that's an issue at my end or not tho Fartkontrol =3 (talk) 17:28, 23 April 2020 (UTC)
There is a way to mass purge pages from API but I don't want to mess up. I'll ask aediot if he can do that. Zagan (talk) 17:53, 23 April 2020 (UTC)

I want to restore an image but I can't b/c the site is buggy >:(

For whatever reason, when I'm on the page for the file I'm unable to log in, therefore preventing me from replacing the missing image. I click "Log In" but nothing happens. Wtf is going on.

Works fine for me. .wil (talk) 02:32, 19 June 2020 (UTC)
Actually, I've run into this issue a few times. However, after awhile the issue resolved itself and the image was replaced successfully. Just ignore it and move on and check later .wil (talk) 09:54, 30 June 2020 (UTC)
