⚠️ 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

    Friends list

    From Encyclopedia Dramatica
    Jump to navigation Jump to search

    The Friends list, also referred to as FL or flist, is a primary and compelling feature of LiveJournal's software, and is often a stupid source of pointless drama. It makes gathering friends ("friending") and reading their posts a simple one-click task. But it is also what keeps many users locked into LJ's abusive and tightly controlled world, instead of choosing some other blogging system.

    The Friends list is often wielded as a special register of importance, and removal from it ("defriending") can cause anxiety and questioning from the removed. Example: "I'm so fucking sick of that bitch, she is totally off my friends list."

    A "Friend of" list shows who has friended that person. It can be a source of endless drama when people get upset about serial adders, trolls, people they don't like, or ex-friends appearing in their list of supposed "friends". These upset people often mistakenly think that people who have friended them can read their "friends only" entries. All the whining eventually caused LJ to make ban_set remove a "stalker" from the friend-of list, allow users to hide the list altogether, and implement the "Mutual Friends" list option.

    In fandom, one sign of a BNF is their extremely huge friend-of list.
