⚠️ 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

    100px Paul 'Snerf' Vanderzee is a massive lolcow.
    Get on here and ask Paul if Icechat supports Linux!

    IceChat is a shitty, bug-riddenfilled IRC client for Windows, made in Visual Basic. Paul Vanderzee, also known IIRC as snerf, is the lolcow known for developing this utterly horrid client. Hanging in the channel '#icechat' on QuakeNet, he offers you support on the client.

    Discovery of lolcow potential

    While a /b/tard was using IceChat to engage in hard gay chats, he encountered a problem, which led to him entering the IceChat support channel. Immediately banned, a fellow /b/tard flooded Paul's sorry ass. This resulted in Paul threatening to be PRESSIN CHARGES on the innocent user. Realizing his level of buttrange, even more fellow /b/tards joined in, contacting Paul directly. Also, even garrett was refused support.


    As Provel:

    <Provel> [20:01] <Provel> why so version

    As Provel in a later time:

    <Provel> Session Start: Wed Oct 12 00:48:32 2011
    <Provel> [00:48] <Provel> i have no boats
    <Provel> [00:48] <Provel>  i only asked for support
    <Provel> [00:49] <Snerf> And you were denied it, move along, its a free program
    <Provel> [00:49] <Provel> also you had my ip when i joined the channel
    <Provel> [00:49] <Snerf> I am sure you have plenty of other people to go bother
    <Provel> [00:50] <Provel> also i asked a friend to ask you to unban me and you banned him because he asked
    <Provel> [00:50] <Snerf> Are you still rambling?
    <Provel> [00:50] <Snerf> Cant give it a rest, can you?
    <Provel> [00:51] <Provel> im just wondering why you think that i did something
    <Provel> [00:51] <Snerf> Why does it matter?
    <Provel> [00:51] <Snerf> Look at all the problems you caused as a result of it. That justifies my actions
    <Provel> [00:51] <Provel> um nope
    <Provel> [00:52] <Provel> asking for help/support doesnt = problems in my book
    <Provel> [00:52] <Snerf> Um yes it does
    <Provel> [00:52] <Snerf> no, the flooding of all the bots, that was because of YOU!
    <Provel> [00:52] <Provel> once again no
    <Provel> [00:52] <Snerf> Yes, you can deny it all you want. byt they didnt just come for no reason, was not until I banned you
    <Provel> [00:53] <Snerf> So, your fault buddy
    <Provel> [00:53] <Snerf> And for that, I am pressing charges
    <Provel> [00:53] <Provel> still no
    <Provel> [00:53] <Snerf> Deny it all you want, you caused it
    <Provel> [00:53] <Snerf> And you are still harassing me, as a result of it, cuz that wasnt good enough
    <Provel> [00:54] <Provel> im not harassing you
    <Provel> [00:54] <Snerf> Do you think you are required free support, for some reason?
    <Provel> [00:55] <Provel> well the site doesnt say that you charge for support so yes
    <Provel> [00:55] <Provel> also unless you forget i was trying to be helpful
    <Provel> [00:55] <Snerf> Well, you are mistaken, you are not entitled to it, if I do not feel like giving it to you
    <Provel> [00:56] <Snerf> If I dont want to give it, I dont have to, It is my choice, not yours.
    <Provel> [00:56] <Snerf> My choice was, not to give it. I do not need to give you any reason to justify my reason
    <Provel> [00:57] <Snerf> I dont care if you dont like it, suck it up, its a free program, go find another one
    <Provel> [00:57] <Provel> then you should remove all irc links from the software and website
    <Provel> [00:57] <Snerf> No
    <Provel> [00:57] <Provel> why not
    <Provel> [00:58] <Provel> you arent going to provide support
    <Provel> [00:58] <Snerf> Not going to provide support to YOU
    <Provel> [00:58] <Snerf> dont you understand that ?
    <Provel> [00:58] <Provel> thats funny
    <Provel> [00:59] <Snerf> I guess I did not mke it clear enough for you
    <Provel> [00:59] <Provel> so if someone tries to help you you wont provide support
    <Provel> [00:59] <Snerf> No, if somesighs
    <Provel> [01:00] <Snerf> Your wasting my time
    <Provel> [01:00] <Snerf> good  bye
    <Provel> [01:00] <Provel> how was i a jackass?
    <Provel> [01:00] * Snerf [01:01] <Provel> dude, i just wanted a better working version of ice chat
    <Provel> [01:01] <Snerf> Why must you continue, ae you enjoying this?
    <Provel> [01:02] <Snerf> Are you just online to piss people off?
    <Provel> [01:02] <Snerf> cuz your doing a fine fucking jop of it
    <Provel> [01:02] <Snerf> added to ignore
    <Provel> [01:02] <Provel> ;_;

    Like a foot:

    <Snerf> fuck off
    <Angelika> NO
    <Snerf> I will not
    <Snerf> I will only laugh
    <Snerf> Cuz you are making yourself look like a foot

    Snerf is really helpful:

    [22:34:46] <CinoxFellpyre> Hi I was wondering
    [22:35:17] <CinoxFellpyre> I really like Icechat, but i lost it when I got Linux, my HDD exploded
    [22:35:38] <CinoxFellpyre> Is there a version of Icechat for Linux? And if not, can you work it under WINE?
    [22:36:59] <CinoxFellpyre> Anyone on? o_o
    [22:46:03] <@Snerf> Icechat 9 runs under Mono
    [22:46:08] <@Snerf> which runs in Linux
    [22:50:05] <CinoxFellpyre> Snerf: Do I need to manually compile it?
    [22:50:16] <CinoxFellpyre> Or do I have a premade package?
    [22:50:21] <@Snerf> yes it only has source code
    [22:50:44] <CinoxFellpyre> When will the package come out?
    [22:51:01] <Ahoalton> packages don't come out for linux
    [22:51:09] <Ahoalton> http://icechat.codeplex.com/
    [22:51:13] <@Snerf> There will be no package for Linux, only source code
    [22:51:19] <@Snerf> Windows will have the installs
    [22:51:27] <Ahoalton> it tells you how to install monodevelop and compile code in documentation
    [22:51:33] <Ahoalton> its not hard
    [22:51:35] <CinoxFellpyre> But Ubuntu allows packages to be installed, even usermade ones.
    [22:51:44] <CinoxFellpyre> And sadly I'm really bad at compiling.
    [22:52:02] <@Snerf> The instructions are on the website Ahoalton posted
    [22:52:04] <Ahoalton> all you have to do is open the .sln file and select build
    [22:52:16] <bolado> Treino sem servidor
    [22:52:16] <bolado> Treino sem servidor
    [22:52:22] <Ahoalton> I give you step-by-step directions on how to do it CinoxFellpyre
    [22:52:28] <Ahoalton> and it doesn't take long either5 
    [22:52:37] <@Snerf> Just need to get MonoDevelop to compile it
    [22:52:43] <Ahoalton> its not one of those long winded ones either
    [22:52:50] <@Snerf> lol
    [22:53:03] <Ahoalton> I've seen some long tutorials
    [22:53:03] <CinoxFellpyre> MonoDevelop?
    [22:53:35] <Ahoalton> the whole thing, from installing monodevelop to compiling to actually running
    [22:54:06] <CinoxFellpyre> Um.....yea....can't you just make a package or something like most programmers do
    [22:54:12] <CinoxFellpyre> a .deb file?
    [22:54:18] <CinoxFellpyre> I think that's what it's called
    [22:54:24] <@Snerf> Do you know how to make one?
    [22:54:40] <CinoxFellpyre> Nope.
    [22:54:44] <@Snerf> Neither do I
    [22:54:50] <@Snerf> So, you get source code :)
    [22:55:04] <CinoxFellpyre> Well, what about asking others?
    [22:55:21] <CinoxFellpyre> Or is there Tutorials on those like they have for compiling?
    [22:55:34] <@Snerf> I didnt find one
    [22:55:40] <@Snerf> So, source code
    [22:55:58] <@Snerf> You want a deb file, find out how to make one, your the 1st to complain :)
    [22:56:47] <CinoxFellpyre> Well, if I do find one, will you be able to make it?
    [22:57:02] <@Snerf> If I can do it, perhaps
    [22:57:35] <CinoxFellpyre> Curious though, have you per chance actually looked?
    [22:57:41] <@Snerf> Yes I have
    [22:57:56] <@Snerf> Spent about an hour , found nothing, didnt care anymore, left it how it is
    [22:58:13] <@Snerf> And frankly, no one has complained about it
    [22:58:20] <@Snerf> So it didnt matter much to me
    [22:58:23] <billao> #mixbr
    [22:58:58] <@Snerf> al the linux users I know, prefer source code
    [22:59:09] <CinoxFellpyre> http://www.linuxfordevices.com/c/a/Linux-For-Devices-Articles/How-to-make-deb-packages/
    [22:59:17] <CinoxFellpyre> Well, just found this on the first page.
    [22:59:40] <@Snerf> ok
    [23:00:06] <CinoxFellpyre> Second result.
    [23:00:12] <CinoxFellpyre> I put in how to make a .deb file
    [23:00:49] <@Snerf> Considering I dont use Linux, It is not an issue for me
    [23:01:21] <CinoxFellpyre> But it's...an issue for people who do? Especially those who can't compile?
    [23:01:23] <CinoxFellpyre> x-x
    [23:01:45] <@Snerf> The instructions are on the site in how to
    [23:02:01] <@Snerf> its not a normal Linux program, its a Mono program , it is done differently
    [23:02:08] <CinoxFellpyre> What's the difference?
    [23:02:14] <@Snerf> a huge difference
    [23:02:21] <@Snerf> w/o Mono, it wont run
    [23:02:36] <@Snerf> so I am not even sure if it can be packaged
    [23:03:29] <CinoxFellpyre> Mono...mono...what was it caled?
    [23:03:41] <@Snerf> its just not a priority for me, thats all. The instructions on how to compile it are posted, and I am happy with that
    [23:03:50] <inv0lt> man
    [23:03:56] <@Snerf> since the majority of users are windows users
    [23:03:57] <inv0lt> i im dcing sooo much
    [23:04:05] <@Snerf> inv0lt, you sure are
    [23:04:15] <inv0lt> its pissing me off
    [23:04:34] <CinoxFellpyre> So wait, just because the majority is Windows, Linux is kind of shrugged off? :C
    [23:04:35] <inv0lt> maybe cause im connetected to to many servers/channels
    [23:05:02] <@Snerf> CinoxFellpyre, shrugged off?  if it was shrugged off, you wouldnt have anything
    [23:05:08] <@Snerf> inv0lt, who knows
    [23:05:21] <SeattleShmuck> you dont even know what linux is
    [23:05:23] <@Snerf> CinoxFellpyre, the instructions are posted, on how to compile it
    [23:05:41] <CinoxFellpyre> Will I need packages to compile?
    [23:05:43] <CinoxFellpyre> Or something?
    [23:05:51] <@Snerf> No install package has been made, thats all there is to it. I am sorry, but thats all I have to offer
    [23:06:03] <@Snerf> I cant cater to everyones needs, I dont have that kind of time
    [23:06:30] <CinoxFellpyre> Alright, well I just tried it now, and it broke.
    [23:06:32] <CinoxFellpyre> >-<
    [23:06:56] <@Snerf> Well, you need MonoDevelop, w/o that, you cant compile it
    [23:07:22] <CinoxFellpyre> And where can I get it?
    [23:07:42] <@Snerf> google is your friend , you seem to know how to use it :)
    [23:08:43] <@Snerf> http://icechat.codeplex.com/documentation  , it is worth reading
    [23:09:07] <CinoxFellpyre> Uh, there's no Ubuntu Mono.
    [23:09:11] <CinoxFellpyre> At least in my version.
    [23:09:44] <@Snerf> well, all the versions of Ubuntu I used had Mono
    [23:09:56] <@Snerf> but mono is not monodevelop
    [23:10:32] <@Snerf> mono is the set of libraries, monodev is the program used to write the code, compile it much easier
    [23:11:09] <CinoxFellpyre> .....so wait
    [23:11:16] <CinoxFellpyre> I need the Libraries?
    [23:11:51] <@Snerf> Just use the Ubuntu software package program
    [23:12:17] <@Snerf> It should let you install Mono, if you havent
