⚠️ 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

    Did you pre-order episode 3 yet?.

    Gabe Newell, also known as Gaben is an evil plushophile and a porcine abomination that rules over anything under the Valve shadow. He's infamous for crushing dreams and destroying hope, known for his never ending hunger and lack of morals, ruling over an evil empire solely based upon greed and deceit.


    Gabe was thrown out of University for eating his roommates. From there he went to work at Micro$oft, scoring millions of dollars and then ditching the company years later to create vidya gæms.

    Gabe soon thought up Half-Life, where the protagonist was opposite to him in every way (thin, good looking, quiet, etc). Half-Life took over 2 years to make due to both Gabe revising his Valve Time technique and being unable to render maps that weren't snack rooms or McDonald's.

    After almost making himself bankrupt, Gabe released Half-Life and got rich again. He used the money to develop Steam, attracting 13 year old boys all over the globe. He also found groups of suckers who created games such as Counter-Strike, Ricochet and Day of Defeat, employing them and making money off of their work. CAPITALISM, HO!

    Gabe then made Half-Life 2, 6 years after its prequel. He and his company now stick to updating the same old games to use newer engines rather than working on making new games, which explains why the Half-Life 2 episodes took so fucking long to arrive and why one of them doesn't exist yet (Spoiler: it never will).

    To this day Valve Time is proven to be successful since Gabe has been using it on Episode Three since it was supposed to come out in 2005. Valve's fanboys continue to defend the title, proving that Valve Time helps to keep fans attached to the games. Gabe has also distracted his fans with releases such as Team Fortress 2, Left 4 Dead, Left 4 Dead 2, Portal and a bunch of other titles.

    Today, Gabe still runs Valve and continues to delay Episode Three. Calling Gabe fat via the Steam Community extends the delay by a month.

    The Gabeard

    During an interview with Penny Arcade, it was revealed that Gaben had grown a beard that made him look closer and closer to a walrus. Steam fanboys immediately jumped out and tried to call it a sign of Episode Three, simultaneously cumming themselves in blood pressure-raising panic. Meanwhile, the rest of the world just views him as finally becoming lazy enough to eat instead of shaving.

    Gabe is a Brony

    God help us all, he's finally sent /v/ into a full-on Kristallnacht.

    gabe reddit AMA

    Last Thursday gaben did a reddit AMA ArchiveToday-favicon.png(archive), and like anything on reddit all the serious questions got downvoted to oblivion and the first 500 most upvoted comments were pun trains and things along the lines of "where's half life 3" and "will you sign my trilby/fedora?"

    Gabe's interviews


    In short, all of Gabe Newell's interviews can be summed by this: "We're currently working on blah blah blah blah, and a big surprise will be revealed really really soon!"

    Gabe's official theme song

    [-+]Gotta eat it all

    I want to be the very fat
    Like no one ever was
    To develop them is my real test
    To delay them is my cause
    I will travel across the couch
    Searchin' far and wide
    Each piece of food to digest
    The power that's inside!

    It's you and me.
    I know it's my destiny!
    Ooh you're my best friend
    In a game we must delay!
    A heart so true
    My stomach will pull me through
    You eat me and I'll eat you
    (Gotta delay 'em) Gotta delay 'em Gotta delay 'em all!

    Every game along the way
    With hunger I will face
    I will eat everyday
    To claim my rightful place!
    Come with me, the time is right!
    There's no better team
    Arm and arm, we'll piss the fans!
    Episode 3 always been a dream!

    It's you and me.
    I know it's my destiny!
    Ooh you're my best friend
    In a game we must delay!
    A heart so true
    My stomach will pull me through
    You eat me and I'll eat you
    (Gotta delay 'em) Gotta delay 'em! (Gaben!)

    It's you and me.
    I know it's my destiny!
    Ooh you're my best friend
    In a game we must delay!
    A heart so true
    My stomach will pull me through
    You eat me and I'll eat you
    (Gotta delay 'em) Gotta delay 'em Gotta delay 'em all!

    tl;dr another Pokemon ripoff.

    Emails sent to Gabe

    Gabe sometimes responds to emails sent to his corporate address no matter how lulzy they may be.

    /v/'s visit to Gabe

    Around August 2010, /v/, in their wholehearted love for Gabe, sent Gabe an email with an image containing hundreds of signatures from /v/ users. Gabe responded the next day inviting /v/ to the offices of Valve. Whether /v/ will go or not is unknown since their charter buses are likely to break down under the weight of so many /v/irgins.

    /v/ plans to visit Gabe sometime later in 2010 (considering they don't forget to go; lol oops). Their strict set of rules mean there will be no underageb&, furries or girlfriends. This makes shit easier (no responsibly of retarded kids, no furry pride crap and no repetitive whining about how everyone in the bus stinks of manchild sweat).
