⚠️ 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!
Georgewilliamherbert is a Wikipedia admin. If he had a real life, in it he would be George William Herbert, who lives in the San Francisco Bay Area, with his wife Lee, and six rescue cats, 3 of which weigh over 12 lbs. He works for a few minutes in computer consulting by day, and spends the rest of the time trying to become a bureaucratic fuck. By night, he does precious little aerospace engineering as the owner of Venturer Aerospace and his consulting company Retro Aerospace, and then resumes trying to become a bureaucratic fuck. Herbert writes technical materials, nonfiction, and a little fiction for flavor, concentrating on producing bogus explanations for why he is banning new editors at Wikipedia. One could say that he writes poetry, but he himself confesses, "I produce doggrel [sic] is perhaps a more fair statement."
In October of 2010, Georgewilliam Herbert won a prestigious award, as reported by Global Associated News, "George-William Herbert Shatters Masturbation World Record!"
Herbert is noted for making embarrassing proxy blocks on behalf of Will Beback, and for making the following statement about Wikipedia biographies: "We are an encyclopedia, and an open source content project. Our objective, as a project, is to create and host content. That includes biographies of people who are alive, so that we can defame them."
Georgewilliamherbert is believed to be the inspiration for this superb series of instructional videos at YouTube:

- Wikipedia: an introduction pt II
- Wikipedia: an introduction pt III
