⚠️ 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!
Ghost in the Shell
Ghost in the shell is a Original Anime series that takes the bold approach to try and depict the near future of humankind, like every other anime. Its main characters are cybernetically enhanced, like every other anime. It was based on a manga, like every other anime. The plot is a long convoluted dialog about something but no one has stayed awake through the movies and TV episodes to remember what it was. The only reason why anyone watches it is because it obeys the cardinal rule of anime: Tits or GTFO (also called fan service). The main character, Major Motoko, has gigantic tits. Thus making the Ghost in the shell watchable.
The original animated movie was about something, but who on earth could sit through the 2 hours worth of pure yapping to figure out what it was. All that mattered was the opening scene, and several other times during the movie, when you got to see the Major’s TITS! (Even in slowmo!)
The story goes as fallows: Its the future, everyone is a cyborg, and only the Major can stop a evil Hacker called “The Puppet Master” from doing something. The entire movie is just her either fighting people naked or talking about philosophy and other crap only relevant in Japan.
The second movie: Innocents
A failed attempt at recreating the 1st WITHOUT the tits (actually, there are some tits (albeit japanese size) for your peace of mind). This story is completely different. In this, Batou must stop a hacker from doing something. See, completely different.
Third movie: Solid Snake Society
Once again, the original master piece that is the third film is nothing like one and two. Batou must work WITH the major to stop an evil hacker. Guess what! The hackers name is… “The Puppeteer” a clear cut away from the Puppet Master. In the end, it turns out the old people where behind these shenanigans.
The TV show: Talk-alot-Complex
In order to come up with something completely different from the Movies, the TV show invented several new characters to spit out the incoherent dialog in addition to the Major and Batou.
Season One Story: The Major, Batou, and all the n00bs try to catch a Hacker on Steroids called “The Laughing Man”. Every episode is the long dialog fallowed by some action. In the end, Laughing Man dies and everyone on the team gets killed.
Season Two: The Major, Batou, and the n00bs try to catch a group of Hackers on Steroids called “The Individual 11”. The Individual 11 are trying to liberate war refugees by, I AM NOT MAKING THIS UP, killing them and faking terrorist attacks to blame on them. Turns out they had viruses in their Cyberbrains… no shit. In the second season, the writers keep bring up WW3 pretending Japan will win. This is because Japan is still Butthurt about losing WW2.
Major Motoko: A large breasted Japanese babe who is also a hacker. She is fantasy of every Weeboo, too bad for them she is a LESBIAN! Nobody knows anything about her past because nobody can stay awake while watching Ghost in the shell. The Major is feminist icon whose normal "plainclothes" outfit is a leather jacket worn over a thong.
Batou: The beefy Jap version on Steven Seagal. Batou is there to make the homophobic audience feel less creeped out by the Majors rug munching. This does nothing other then provide another mouth for long winded lectures.
Chief Aramaki: Possibly a monkey. Shouts orders and fills in plot holes when the story starts getting implausible. Aramaki is 3’ tall.
Togusa: the all purpose noob who asks the important question. Questions like “What does that mean”, “who’s that”, and “Where’s the beef?”. Without Togusa, the team would have to work instead of explaining the plot.
Ishikawa, Saito, Pazu, Borma, Proto: Are the filler characters. While the Major and Batou/Chief/Togusa talk, these guys do work and fill in the blanks. This allows our main characters to have long winded conversations while these guys risk their asses.
Trolling GITS fans
This is pretty easy. Saying the following will ensue an online riot.
- The matrix is way batter
- The Laughing Man’s icon is retarded
- Apple Seed is way more realistic
- I can’t wait for the live action remake; I hope they film it in New York
- Ghost in the shell is so childish, its worse then Pokemon
- They talk too much. There's no action.
- There's too much shooting and no real plot.
- It's a rip-off of William Shatner's Tek Wars
- It was the last good film that both Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze made.
