⚠️ 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

    File:Lj-favicon.png fake_lj_deaths is a LiveJournal community where e-detectives exercise their skills to catch other users faking their own deaths.

    Theory

    LiveJournal-using attention whores occasionally become so unbalanced that they think it's a good idea to kill themselves, but more often they think that pseuicide or fake cancer is a better way to go. Some users have also been discovered inventing illnesses and deaths for their children or SOs, who may or may not also be invented.

    Fake LJ deaths exists, according to its members, to end the emotional manipulation and occasional fraud practiced by internet liars. Others freely admit to being there for the lulz, but generally a person who posts to ask about a "friend" will receive sympathy from comm members if he or she has been fooled.

    The tone of the community is very serious, with the usual response to a post being not "YHBT" but "Let's ruin that motherfucker." Many members there have been victims of LJ fakers, and hold a grudge against anyone who does the same.

    It is important to distinguish between intentional trolling, which the community will no longer deal with, and faked deaths, which are executed by people who genuinely want others to care about them. One is done for the lulz of fooling everybody with ridiculous stories, while the other is done out of a sick need for e-hugs and the desire to cause genuine pain to others.

    Textbook fake LJ death

    1. Make a happy post with a hint of foreshadowing, so that people can find it and freak out over it.
    2. Refrain from posting for the next twelve hours, if you can possibly manage it.
    3. Post again, claiming to be a boyfriend, a sibling, or a friend, who just happens to have your journal password. Tell your friends that you're ill or injured, in the hospital, and clinging to life.
    4. If you're satisfied with the attention this gets you, you can return at this point, and spend the next several months recovering with the sympathy and e-love of your friends.
    5. Should you decide to continue, make another post as your "friend," regretfully informing your f-list that you died tragically and beautifully.
    6. Sit back and let the grief of others make your cock hard.
