⚠️ 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!

FurFest Northwest was a furry convention planned for August 2006. After the previous convention failed, a furry by the name of Rex Wolf decided he'd run his own convention. Instead of hosting in Seattle, Portland, or any other major metropolitan northwest city, he had the genius idea of hosting it in Moscow, Idaho (Population
15 16 (Congratulations, Mrs. Tibbons, on your baby boy!) Predictably, as furries go, it failed.
Rex blamed this on some people pointing out his bullshit plans on LiveJournal found here. Instead of fixing the obvious flaws, Rex did what any other furry would do when criticized and threatened LEGAL ACTION.
One month before the scheduled convention date, Rex announced on the FurFest Northwest bulletin boards that the convention was being canceled. This was because only 20 people even bothered to sign up. Naturally, Rex blamed this on Seattle area furries for causing destructive drama.
- "Sorry folks, but I'm not going to risk my personal financial situation for a con that has been doomed by a couple of furries who decided to destroy it without even asking a single question, and by the fans who couldn't step up and support the only con in the area this year that we tried so hard to put into place.
- If we don't get 25 registrants tonight, the show is over.
- Someone said it right. Seattle furs don't deserve a con.
- Maybe one day you will, I don't know.
- If the con is canceled, those who wanted to still come out this way are welcome, and we'll do something more informal, without the expense. We'll go see the wolves. We'll go fursuit. We'll have fun, and talk about how stupid it is for people to get so caught up in drama as to destroy something like this.
- -Rex Wolf
Numerous attempts to communicate directly with the chairman both before and after the cancellation were met with open hostility and several posts providing suggestions or asking questions of the con staff were deleted. This sparked even more lulz on Rex's part.
Several accounts were also deleted from the bulletin board, and the board was later configured to only allow new accounts on administrator approval.
In April 2007, Rex announced he was "Goodbye FFN" giving up all efforts to start a new convention and would let the furfestnorthwest.org domain lapse.
This would later lead to his leaving the fandom FOREVAH!
