⚠️ 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

    Typical Hyper forum thread.
    Every Hyper meme from 2003-2005 in one .gif
    You can expect to feel the wrath of the Banhammer for posting anything like this...

    The Hyperactive Forums (aka Hyper Forums) are the internet forums for Australia's largest gaming magazine, Hyper>>. Like every video game-related forums on the internet, circle-jerking nerds whine about why their favourite games shouldn't be hated, why Nintendo are full of fail and AIDS, and WHO TOOK OUR FUCKING POSTCOUNTS.

    Despite being a forum primarily about video games, no one actually posts about games on Hyper. Instead, the bulk of posts reside in Off Topic, which is essentially Hyper's version of a smelly, rat-infested shithole. In Off Topic, the most well-known infamous members compete for reputation. FUCKING FIXED AS OFF TOPIC HAS BEEN BLOCKED TO EVERYONE EXCEPT GEMERALD AND PRATTP. AS SUCH OFF TOPIC HAS BEEN TEMPORARILY PERMANENTLY MOVED TO THE MIGHTY JUSTICE FORUMS.

    Due to the fact that 99% of Australia's population live within 15 minutes of each other, many members have met in real life causing all sorts of drama outside of and within the forum community. Similar to many other forums, Hyper has a wealth of unique celebrities, most of whom have copious amounts of pep.

    Hyper Site & Forum History

    Hyperactive 2.0 Website (1987 - 2002)

    The original Hyperactive website was the magazine's internet hub and included site options for both the United States & Australia, but no one really knew why since everyone knows that all Americans are illiterate. It contained a whole bunch of useless crap barely related to the magazine that no-one cared about.

    phpBB (2002 - 2005)

    The first legitimate attempt at creating a usable forum system was a great success and allowed fans of the magazine to express their opinions about Hyper writers and gave them the ability to ask for Tomb Raider nude patches. The Hyper writers who actually bothered to frequent the forum left in disgust when they realised how much of a spam-filled pile of shit in the internet the forums had become.

    vBulletin (2005 - present)

    In 2005 Hyper changed to a vBulletin system, causing much drama. In early 2008, they upgraded from a hamster and wheel server to one which Next actually pay for. They got their money for this by selling peck (pep cut with crack) to Blake only to take it all away from him when the server was upgraded. Blake cried like a little albino girl for days and days, he even tried to be an hero, but he failed.

    Black Thursday (TAT gets Banned)

    TAT's final post? INDEED

    On the 3rd of July 2008, TAT - the winner of the Most Popular Forumer for 2008 - got banned for posting a picture on this site. Many forumers an hero'd and ragequit due to the insane hypocrisy of this act, until Jubei the Red and his assistant Rawksuga founded the Mighty Justice Forums. MJ is a haven which is free from the white supremacist ways of Next, and unlike the current state of the Hyper Forums, people are free to pretty much post as they wish without constant fear of being butt-fucked unexpectedly. In the time that has passed since TAT's banning, many other users have been hit with temp bans under varying circumstances such as flirting with the line.

    UYAC Era

    While all went well under the Mighty Justice forums, it was too edgy and outrageous for Jubei to allow to live. It had attracted stigma and he could no longer be attached to it. Fortunately the wealthy philanthropist Alejandro donated much cash to the case and the Upstanding Young Adults Club came to fruition. At around the same time Hyper died for weeks, much rejoicing occurred. Then Hyper came back. There was fear that with it's return, so would nazism return to the internet. But it was worse. Hyper returned with no pep, no post count and no good members. How little things change. UYAC however continued to be a haven for the awesome.

    Currently the greatest things in the UYAC world are Dolph Lundgren, sharks, burgers and the easy trolling of Hyper. Current serious topics of debate are the never ending "Does pineapple belong on burgers?" some uncultured members think pineapple does have a place on burgers but they'll soon be proven wrong.


    A Hyperian deity, Peppysaurus Rex.

    The Hyper forums use vBulletin's reputation / karma system where users can rate a post as being good or bad, along with a message; commonly referred to as "pep" (positive reputation), and "nep" (negative reputation) by the Hyperactive community. To gain pep, and in turn, become a celebrity in Off Topic you generally need to be a nice guy while bringing the lulz. Some members, however, have risen to fame through spreading nep and causing drama: see Lex Snappington (below). Pep is so sought after that a pep-deity was made using the green pep icons: Peppysaurus Rex.

    New users are generally given a leeway of around one hundred posts to make an impression. During this time it is up to the existing community to decide whether or not they should be pepped into staying or nepped into leaving.

    One of the options in Hyper's version of vBulletin allows the reputation system to be disabled, resulting in a black person square as opposed to the typical green or red ones. This usually happens when a forum member is nepped constantly for not fitting the established posting mould, and is generally considered to be a mark of extreme failure.

    Popular Threads

    There are a number of enjoyable threads on Hyper, the following being a good list of threads to start:

    Knex Adventures

    The Flapscopter.

    The user known as Flaps provided large amounts of win when he starred in his Oscar Award-winning performance: "Knex Adventures with Hugo". This series gave birth to several memes, including: "Here comes mum!" and the Flapscopter.

    The Would You Hit It Thread

    Created by batman sandwhich, TWYHIT is a place where members can post pictures of hot babes, the only reason the mods allow this is so people (Read: Super Mario) don't post half naked babes in every other thread. Nudity is not allowed on the hyper forums, images like this will get you the ban hammer.

    Show us where ya piss from

    The Positivity and Negativity Threads

    Hyper has two threads for it's bipolar members, these threads are made of :) and :( respectively. The Negativity thread is home to poster etnlIcarus, where members challenge him to the crown of most emo poster. It was from this thread that the term "Having the Icky's" was coined.

    The IRL Pictures Thread

    Basically Hyper's version of Hot or Not. A great deal of memes start out their life in this thread.

    Gaming Setup

    A typical gaming setup photo.

    ITT members clash E-Penii by posting photos of their Master System coupled by their High Definition Sanyo CRT television.

    Hyper Cakes

    Hyper has a fascination with cakes, whether lesbian cooking, baking a cake or a 5 minute cake.

    The Mods

    Typical Mod behaviour.
    The Mod Forum

    Hyper is run by a group of extraordinary members whom Next pays handsomely for their hard work and loyalty.

    Ashmaran is the current Head Admin of the Hyper Forums. The mods are so loyal to Ashmaran and his current régime that they continue to stay in their positions - despite the massive amounts of faggotry and AIDS that occur daily due to Next having their collective balls in a vice - and support every endeavour that he makes.

    There is no higher authority for the forums than the Administrators.



    If you feel the need to openly abuse moderators on the board for their decisions please be aware that your post will be deleted without warning, and can result in your account being suspended.

    —reposting this for the lulz

    it must suck that we've learned to operate within the rules, because now you can't do shit but baww.


    —Javer, to Big Kev, shortly before being banned.

    The Hyper Meet

    Typical Hyper Meet.
    A Hyper threesome in progress.

    • Quatters will buy at least one $100 round of Jagerbombs.
    • Someone will state the fact that Mike-Towns is short.
    • Nem and Spud will re-enact their favourite WRESTLEMANIA moments.
    • Gemerald will not turn up due to being too busy sucking cocks.
    • Moller will ask Bree if he can go out and she'll confiscate his phone and not let him leave the house.
    • Burgin will happen.

    Video of a typical Hyper Meet


    #gg is an IRC channel run by covert hyper posters who have had their original accounts banned. Some Hyper forumers are members of #gg, however for them to become members without being banned they have to do the following:

    • Step 1: Enter the IRC channel
    • Step 2: Ask Lead or beeface which thread to "target"
    • Step 3: Go to said thread and post Crab.jpg
    • Step 4: ??????
    • Step 5: PROFIT!

    Although the IRC channel is a crucial means of communication for #gg, the main hub for #gg activity is their state-of-the-art website, referred to on the street as 'The Big Easy'.

    A Typical #gg Chat Log

    #gg now

    It was, indeed, time for new mods.


    Once considered the bane of Hyperactive's existence, following BLACK THURSDAY many members took back their criticisms of the rogue spam group and hailed them as the true prophets of the forums.

    gg, unsurprisingly, no longer cared.

    Hyper Villains Legends


    DekarTyphon, take a seat.

    Dekar rose to villainy when he stole 20,000 dollars from his work to pay for his bad music collection, consisting of Jay-Z bootlegs and Enya live performances. He is also known for living in the indie thread, making up underground artists to gain Pep. In 2007 DekarTyphon formed a popular Groove Metal band called DekarTyphon, the band consists of the members: DekarTyphon, DekarTyphon and DekarTyphon on vocals. However, the band's myspace was taken down after the band went bankrupt one month later, much to everyones pleasure.

    i have a good 8 instrumentals that could do with something over the top, so that's the plan!


    —DekarTyphon talks about the band DekarTyphon


    Goodnight, sweet Prince ;_;

    On the 16th of August, 2008, Dekar redeemed all of his previous discrepancies and his obsession with Indy music (lol not quite) by amassing an incredible 15,000 posts and sticking it to Next. In the tradition of recent mod buttfuckery, despite being completely censored of any explicit or graphic imagery Dekar's 15th and final milestone was deleted, this shitty res'd screencap all that remains of the momentous event.

    gemerald you're shit go die. the same goes for prattp, gio, fx-gtz, queenie and the rest of you cunts who don't matter. only thing saving this forum is irs. ilu irs.


    —DekarTyphon on the current state of the Hyper Forums


    MC FACE as seen by gaselite.

    gaselite achieved much in his time at the Hyperactive Forums. He was the first member to officially reach 10,000 rep points (under the old system), and was given mod status by the forum's internet constabulary. Upon reaching all the highs that an ordinary forumer could, though, gaselite got bored and changed his ways. He became obsessed with taunting others for his own amusement, misusing his mod-powers, culminating in his unlawful editing of a new user's profile picture to a picture of some saggy man tits with a frowny face drawn on them. Upon realising that one of their own had gone rogue, the Mods expelled gaselite from their order; everyone assumed that the drama was over.

    Unfortunately for gaselite and the rest of the Hyperactive community, MC FACE cracked the sads and instead of complaining to the forum Admin (as any sane, but butthurt user would do), went straight to the company in control of the Hyper Magazine, Next. Next immediately made their presence known by laying down a brand new set of rules, including a long list of things which will incur an automatic ban (NO EXCEPTIONS). As a result, gaselite received a 2-week temporary ban, ending his smug-fuckery.

    Next still keeps tabs on Hyperactive, waiting for unaware users to brainfart, so they, too, can be given the Banhammer.


    Morphix post-jail butthurt
    Morphix, Lips courtesy of OldSkOoL

    Morphix was an unpopular forum member until he accidentally hit and killed a war veteran whilst speeding in his car, just 2 weeks after getting his P-plates. Currently serving time.

    OK well as some of the oldies would know, I used to be around here alot, then drifted out ect but still read up on things occasionally. Anyhow this thread is to discuss mainly, jail, prision, sentancing, and possibly general law issues. The reason I start this thread is because there is a reasonably high chance I can be going for something terrible that had to happen to be almost a year ago, andnow recently I have been presented with charges and a 155page summary. ANyhow I'm not the kinda kid that would suit jail or anything, but i want to know if anyone knows anyone whos been or general advice



    Lex Snappington

    Lex is the self-appointed troll of the Hyper Forums. Lex takes a lot of drugs; so much so that future generations of potheads will sniff his cremated remains in the hope of achieving the ultimate high. Lex is known for creating www.erowid.org, and will defend drugs and proclaim their brilliance to no end.

    Lex is a constant source of forum drama. It is considered especially lolworthy to established members when n00bs come on the forum and whine, "why did you nep me lex?".


    Oldskool, the most beautiful and photogenic of all Hyperians, had also grown tired with the rising amount of faggotry a massive sook due to being unable to post pictures of himself on the Hyper Forums. In a fit of beautiful rage, he posted the included image and text as a sweet farewell to the rising Nazism and Bolshevism of the Hyper mods.

    So after my two week banning for getting two warning for insulting that little cock sucker Gemerald I'm back, and what do I find, I'm blocked from Off Topic because I have more than two infractions.

    Honestly who the fuck is running this shit hole. Hyper used to be great fun, we had mods like Mykle and even Stevo who back in the day were carefree and let most things slide. This new crop are fucking bullshit.

    It shames me to leave here but honestly with the tyrannical nazi rule that has started here I find Hyper no longer enjoyable.

    There's no hate or dislike to anyone here (bar Gem, you fucking giant homo) and I'd gladly catch up and have a beer with anyone on these boards. (Oh Morphix too).

    Hopefully many more of you can see the light and migrate over to MJ, it's not the blatant spam hole a lot of you make it out to be, because my friends Hyper is run by Fucking Nazis!.


    —Skool's last words



    Former moderator and forum hero Natrak was banned on what shall come to be known as RAGNAROK TUESDAY due to it undoubtedly being one of the final nails in Hyperactive's coffin.

    A long time contributor wide across the forum who rarely stirred the pot, Natrak was banned for posting an entirely inoffensive image of Doctor Manhattan with an exaggerated cartoon penis.


    Famous ex-Hyperians

    The Coconut King

    Coco AKA The Coconut King

    The Coconut King (also known as TCK) was a wiry Hyperian of average height, with matted-down blonde hair. TCK posted in the early phpBB days, as well as the forum's very first incantation (pre-2002) when it had 4 hideous smilies. The move to phpBB was a positive one for coco, as it allowed him to express his love for Gnomey_g and pirates simultaneously.


    Posting this was Ghosty's way of leaving gracefully

    Well known for raging on a daily basis, he soon raged hard enough that he left the forums for life.


    PK was crazy. PK was also the original Hyperian spammer, and was the first ever user to reach 10,000 posts at his height. PK is best understood as an "ancient Blake" although Blake is quite affable whereas punk had a reclusive nature.


    In attempting to pictorially burn another member, bowie unwittingly posted gay porn, earning the wrath of the Banhammer

    Well renowned for his shitty spelling, bowie had a cult following. Some members read his posts and thought they were reading messages from their God, while others couldn't read them at all due to the poor punctuation, lack of spelling and capitalisation, and an absence of coherence. He especially hated TAT and OldSkOoL, and was under the belief the he was in fact a hot babe, with a special place for catdogs. bowie's downfall came when he posted an extremely rare magic card, which, when played against OrchidEleven causes massive damage, but carries the risk of self destruction when played against Next.


    Moggo has a long and varied history on Hyper. Moggo v1.0 was mild-mannered and somewhat boring. When he returned to the forums as Moggo v2.0, he did so as a troll that, while being annoying, was always considered to be a shadow of the dominant troll at the time: Sytadel (aka Syt). Whereas Syt's delivery of insults resembled the precise cut of a skilled surgeon, Moggo preferred making those same precision cuts with a sledgehammer. Syt eventually took his foot off the pedal and Moggo eventually became more respected infamous as a troll, although between an obsession with Leigh Loveday's Arse and - more importantly - with Emma Watson he was better known as the forum's own incarnation of Pedobear. To be considered a freaky child-loving pervert by a bunch of sexless gamers is quite a feat.

    This reputation only fueled Moggo's fire and he continued to flame and spam more and more, eventually leading to multiple bannings and account remakes. Some say that Moggo still lurks the forums, browsing the "Would you hit it?" thread to view Super Mario's barely-legal jailbait postings from trashy porn sites.

    The Captain

    The Captain thought it would be a good idea to cry about nep

    The Captain came on drunk one evening and whinged about having his rep reduced by 2 squares in one hit by pep heavyweight TAT. As TAT is was a respected member, the Hyper community took offence to The Captain's words and unleashed a plethora of nep upon him. The rest, as they say, is history.

    Saq, aka FX-GTZ

    FX-GTZ with his GF

    Saq originally attained forum notoriety when she he it posted in an extremely feminine manner, even going as far as describing herself himself itself for the rest of the gullible males on Hyper (who forgot the 30th rule of the internet). Saq made the mistake of posting an image of herself himself itself in a darkened room. 3 minutes later, with the aid of an expensive and extremely technical image modification program, it was revealed that Saq was in fact a man (unconfirmed as of 4/8/2008). Saq still posts at the forums under the name of FX-GTZ. Most of her his its posts are drug-fuelled rants which question whether or not Lex Snappington is indeed the drug superking of the forums. However it has recently come to light that she he it is infact a huge fan of dick girls.


    A true hero, Blazza was at the birthday bash for a fellow Hyperian's younger sister when he was caught digitally penetrating one of the other younger, and incapacitated, girls at the party. Needless to say Blazza set a standard all should aspire to. One other Hyperian Helmed Horror also stands to be mentioned in this vein, as once, at a friend of his sisters place, he masturbated into her bra which he found. Truly deserves mountains of pep.

    TAT aka The Angry Tasmanian

    TAT <3 Geography

    TAT experienced the hard end of the Banhammer when it was revealed that he had posted images of explicit sexual content in this very article while the page was still linked to the Hyperactive Forums. Yes, that's correct: TAT was banned from the Hyper Forums because of something he posted on a completely separate website. Work that fucking shit out.

    As well as being the reigning "Most Popular" member of the Hyper Forums, TAT is the current record holder for "Least Number of Infractions to Permanent Ban" at 1. According to the User Infraction Rules at the Hyper Forums, a user shouldn't be permanently banned until they have received 6 infractions. Using this logic not only are all Hyper mods being arse-raped by Next, but none of the cunts can count, either.

    I've decided that, as of right now, I'm leaving the forums. I have been toying with the idea for a while, but have never understood why. I have never had a concrete enough reason to leave. It's unfortunate, but now I do: I've just outgrown the forum, and I've outgrown the majority of you - with the exception of a bunch of people who know exactly who they are when I say this. I don't really give a f*ck if this post is passed over or ignored - the people who matter will read it and, well, I don't know what, really. I have better ways to invest the limited free time I have. I'm not going to hang around waiting for praise or criticism - I've been doing that for 18 months now and have f*ckall to show for it.

    I'm still going to visit Hyper so I can keep in touch with the people that matter. As for the rest of you, well, it's been fun, but it stopped being fun a long time ago and only now am I realising that I should have taken that as a sign to get the f*ck out.
