⚠️ 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

    Insectduel is a 23 year old, male ROM-hacking veteran named Rondell L. Molé from the Bronx. Since an early age, he has shown a passion for buttsecks and still drops the soap to this day. As an experienced artist, Insectduel has proven his skill by making forum signature banners with photoshop to advertise his critically acclaimed ROM-hacking work. Much of his art is reminiscent of animu and the "Winx Club".

    He takes care to keep his name from being tarnished; for example:

    You can no longer view my MySpace page anymore. The profile will remain in private. However, I've still cannot host a real pic of me in public for safety reasons.



    He also wishes people to take him and his affairs seriously:

    Our staff, our board, and rules are SERIOUS. This is not a joke board.


    —Insectduel, from part of the headline of his forum

    In addition to the skills he's learned in Computer Science 3, he's also mastered the use of the English language from his foray into 12th grade English. His proficiency with the Japanese language is also apparent:

    Konnichiwa! Welcome to Insectduel's Board. The world of ROM-Hacking. For those who supports Megagirl another fight story. Thank you for all your support. We are appericated :). Registration to Insectduel's Board is absolutely free. When you write in Insectduel's Board, you should be able to read and write English on your own. Otherwise have fun being banned.




    Ever since passing Computer Science 3 in High School, Insectduel has produced work loved by many throughout the community like "Afterworld 8" and several other masterpieces. He also has a few projects in development, some of which will allegedly include "ASM", a programming language that he'd learned while in Computer Science 3.


    Some critics have said that sometimes he's gone as far as to patronize the less experienced ROM-hackers, and even stating that this message may upset the casual browser:

    Condensed Rules for idiots like you

    One. No SPAMMING Two. No flaming, either. Idiots will be banned on sight. Three. No acting like a mod unless your name is in a flavor other than 0. Four. No advertising. (This includes MySpace) Five. No being stupid. Six. Don't ask for ROMs. It's posted everywhere. Don't be a stupid moron and ask (you'll get permabanned) Seven. No, you can't have a copy of Proboards. Stop asking. We are never associated with the Proboards development team. Eight. Hacking a ROM and showing nothing but screenshots of a single level with nothing new is a good way to get a thread closed. Nine. No profanity bypassing. Ten. Gross amounts of stupidity will be banned on sight.

    If you obey these rules, you'll do fine. Disobey them and I'll ban you.


    —Insectduel, from his "Newbie Forum"

    Others have criticized his work; they've called it poor and Insectduel himself a newbie, citing the irony in that he is allegedly a newbie calling others newbies.

    His harshest critics and most beloved followers agree: He is responsible for the contempt in which he is held. His friends say that others are jealous of his skill and creativity, others claim that he is a hack, with a poor attitude and a lack of any tangible work under his belt. Regardless of which side one is on, most acknowledge his fame, which may be exactly what he intended.
