⚠️ 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!
Free Software Foundation
Free Software Foundation (FSF) is a non-profit organization founded in 1985 by communist agitator Richard Stallman to support the free software movement.
Free as in...
By "free," Stallman refers not only to free speech, in that free software is retarded and un-American, but also to free beer, since free software is full of cigarette butts and is an excellent way to reduce hobos' genetically-inherited resistance to fire.
The FSF is notoriously difficult to deal with, being full of dirty hippies and communists who refuse to let little things like practicality or showers compromise their ideals. Instead of working cooperatively with large corporations to find a common ground, the FSF has been known to pull shit like rejecting software that met all their requirements of being free, but that was initially compiled with a commercial IDE or came in contact at any point with something that might have cost money, as if paid software were like peanuts to someone with a nut allergy. Their insistence that all software should be free makes them a laughing-stock of the computer world; even many open-source advocates find their standards so extreme as to be laughable.
How to work with the FSF
Don't. You can't.
If you plan on writing "free software" and are not in any way affiliated with Stallman or the FSF, just forget about it. They will nitpick everything you do, and make up new arbitrary rules so that all the idiots who do anything Stallman says (if you program for Linux, this means just about everybody) will not use it.
Indeed, the FSF will not be happy until everyone is forced to turn to the FSF for all of their software needs! Why else would nearly all the programs that meet their expectations be directly affiliated with them in some way?
Then the FSF will have a monopoly in everything computer, it will rule the universe! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!PROFIT!!!!11!!
