⚠️ 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!
The licenses for most software are designed to anally rape you, leave your destroyed ass on a Hollywood sidewalk, where your tattered remains will be photographed and dumped on the internets. By contrast, the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and modify your ass--to make sure that it is free for all its users. It will also give you AIDS and make sure that anyone using your ass will get it as well. Oh, and this also applies to software, too. Speaking of software, this General Public License applies to most of the Free Software Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to abusing it.
When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, including the freedom to deny other people's freedoms. Incidentally, this does not mean lower prices. As Microsoft has factually shown, most GPLed software is actually more expensive than proprietary software. Still, our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the freedom to charge for copies of "free" software, that you receive source code or can get it if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new freeware programs; and that you know you can deny others the right to do these things.
