⚠️ 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

    In a typical open sores manner Irssi completely lacks the evil auto-rejoin feature that all the script kiddies love.

    Fast, modular, Perl-scriptable, and low memory imprint IRC client. The official client of Buttes, Bantown, and Insub.

    To scroll in irssi, simply hit escape, then p to go up or n to go down. Remember to hit escape for each window move. It couldn't possibly be easier! As an alternative, if you happen to live in the current era, you can just use the "Page Up" and "Page Down" keys, though irssi loses half of its fun if you do that, and of course that only works if you're actually using a terminal, and not a VT100 compliant xterm, in which case you're just scrolling your xterm.

    As a drama-generating technique

    EPIC and BitchX fanatics are known to get penis-rash when confronted with the facts of irssi's excellent UI and superior scriptability. It is suggested that you join #epic and #bitchx and scroll "irssi 4 lyf" in rainbow figlet.

    Alternatively, irssi users can be butthurt should you suggest they use an IRC client that lets you use the magical technological advance known as a "Graphic Interface" instead of using a 30-year-old Command line.

    IRC: Serious business

    As the irssi faq notifies us:

    • Q: How do I autorejoin channels after being kicked?
      • A: That's evil and you shouldn't do it... If you're joined to channels who kick people for fun, try changing channels or something.

    In this way, the creators of irssi remind us that the internets truly is serious fucking business!

    Of course, in a completely contradictory manner, you can find the autorejoin script at http://scripts.irssi.org/. Thankfully you have to configure it make it that much harder.

    Awesome Features (That irssi doesn't have)

    • Easy user setup
    • Understandable interface
    • Efficiency
    • Not depending on fucking GLib

    Flooding with irssi

    Make the following settings:

    /set cmd_queue_speed 0msec
    /set cmds_max_at_once 0
    /set flood_max_msgs 0
    /set flood_timecheck 0

    Afterwards, you must /quit or /disconnect and connect again (/reconnect alone won't work, weird bug). Feel free to go crazy afterwards.

    Use a bash script to connect

    Face it, you'll be too fucking high to remember how to connect to IRC using IRSSI, fortunately, this bash script will make using IRSSI nearly effortless.

    # File: irc.sh (though renaming it "irc" is better.)
    # Usage: ~/irc NETWORK
    # Info: Launch irssi with ease
    # TODO: Host name changes (use something other than your isp)
    if [ -z $1 ]; then
    elif [ -n $1 ]; then
    # open one of these networks
    #  $irc[0]=SERVER
    #  $irc[1]=NICK
    #  $irc[2]=PASSWORD
    #  irc=( zero one two ... )
    case $network in
      # Encyclopedia Dramatica
      "ed") irc=( irc.lulz.net YourNick1 YourPassword1 ) ;;
      # Freenode
      "fn"|"freenode") irc=( irc.freenode.net YourNick2 YourPassword2 ) ;;
      # Add more networks here
      # Everything else
      *) echo "ERROR! Invalid network." >&2; exit 1 ;;
    irssi -c ${irc[0]} -n ${irc[1]} -w ${irc[2]}

    When you are done writing it, chmod u+x ~/irc to make it executable.
