⚠️ 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



    HorseNews

    From Encyclopedia Dramatica
    Jump to navigation Jump to search
    This article is perfect. Don't fuck with it!

    HorseNews is an IRC news bot written in Python that updates the channel with news related to horses. Some argue that the malware bundled with KaZaA is more useful than HorseNews. Judging by the logs below it seems that HorseNews was probably created by a baby with Klinefelter's syndrome. There are estimated to be 5 people, worldwide, that are interested in horse-related news and have the internet. 6 of those 5 people use Google News search instead of HorseNews.

    The bot uses an RSS feed parser and an IRC client library. The RSS feed parser checks Google news every minute for new horse related stories. If any story that appears in the RSS feed is not present in HorseNews' cache, the link and title of the news story will be messaged to the channel(s) configured in the bot.

    In addition to up-to-the-minute updates on breaking horse news, the bot also works on demand. If a user messages the channel with "!horse", HorseNews will post the last 10 horse news headlines to the channel. Each headline will be prefixed with a digit from 0 to 9. If a user wants to read more about a story, they can message the channel with !horse [digit] and then HorseNews will message the channel with the URL.

    Thank God for HorseNews
