⚠️ 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.
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!
Jack Merridew was a prominent deletionist on Wikipedia until he was banned on March 31, 2008, when it was discovered that he had over 9,000 cockpuppets used for pushing his deletion campaign and for harassing known drama whore White Cat/Cool Cat. His oldest known account was Davenbelle, and two other major accounts of his were Diyarbakir and Moby Dick. He is also known to have two other minor accounts called D73733C8-CC80-11D0-B225-00C04FB6C2F5 and Note to Cool Cat.
Jack hates stuff to do with popular culture such as Dungeons & Dragons, Star Wars, and Honorverse, so he goes around vomiting tags all over their respective Wikipedia articles and tries to get them deleted. This earned him the friendship of an epic faggot and fellow deletionist known as Gavin Collins, and they are now best friends forever. This also earned him the enmity of fellow cockpuppeteer Grawp, who was known for making Jack butt-hurt for several months. Jack was also frequently raided by eBaum's World, as can be seen here.
Originally, Jack Merridew’s account name was “Senang Hati,” which he used to create spam articles for the Senang Hati Foundation and Smile Foundation of Bali, two organizations in Bali that kidnap children with facial disfigurements such as cleft lips and subsequently engage in pederasty. He had the account renamed to “Jack Merridew,” and then Grawp created a new account called “Senang Hati” for the lulz, which he used to try to get Jack’s spam deleted. Grawp was unsuccessful, and the account was renamed to “Senang Hati (impersonator).” Ironically, Jack’s spam articles still exist, even though they are shit.
Jack Merridew is an English-speaking retard, most likely an Ausfag, who, after getting kicked out of his native country, moved to an island called Bali in Indonesia. There, he works for the Senang Hati Foundation and Smile Foundation of Bali, where is he is paid in child slaves to use as sex toys. After being put in Bantown yet again, he is most likely being entertained by such slaves as you read this.
The Drama Continues
Mainly due to support from his deletionist buddies and sucking the cocks of various TOW admins in the Cabal, Jack Merridew was unblocked on May 2, 2008, much to the dismay of the faggot White Cat. However, he was blocked forever once again just two days later  after much drama-mongering. He is now confined to editing shitty little projects like the Indonesian Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons, having his deletionist buddies spam his shitty Balinese pictures all over TOW. Jack is obsessed with drama and his edits are pretty much only on talk or bureaucracy pages. TOW is just a place to interact with people over the internet for Jack and Nothing he adds to the encyclopedia has any value.
More Drama Coming Soon
"A Leopard Doesn't Change Its Spots" ~ Jack Merridew March 16, 2010
Jack has got those admins fooled. He puts on his "I have seen the error of my ways. I've changed. I am reformed. I'm no longer an a**hole" act. Those idiots are dead from the neck up. Jack isn't bright, it's just that they are so pathetically gullible. While telling them this, Jack's subconscious leaves little turds of truth about himself on Wikipedia, like this one from his talk page (also here) where he says that he has never seen a leopard change his spots. We agree Jack, too bad the admins don't pay attention to your unchanged spots.
One day, after ignoring these little turds of truth from Jack, those admins are going to wake up too late to see that they and Wikipedia have been ass raped by Jack. Those admins better lube up as the day is coming sooner than they think.
Jack Asks To Be Made An Administrator
On March 16, 2010, ol' Jack made a request to be made an administrator. Stock up on that lubricant Wikipedia. You are going to need it. The clock is ticking.
In April 2011, soon after Jack's account was scuttled, some good ol' lulz arose. Shortly thereafter, the emergence of the user 'Barong' came, and brought moar lulz in his boat with him. And then Jack brought his ol' fucking rant-ish self to him, and ranted. [/the end]
Wiki's dispute resolution process is
The restrictions the AC has imposed on me for years—and intend to maintain in perpetuity—make it impossible for me to continue to effectively participate in this project. The little shits, and the big shits, target me. A clean start is not open to me ('restricted') and, as Iri confidentially pointed out to Malleus, clean starts require you to effectively create a new personality... which is effectively the same thing as socking. What a fucked-up project.
I've defiantly edited as a bunch of socks and as various IPs because the renewed restriction on me is bullshit; I'm just pissing on it. I spent years abiding by all they asked, was commended for a clean return, and then kicked in the teeth. Fuck that. If they can't bring themselves to ever resolve my case, I will. When I sought removal of the old restrictions, my intent was simply to reach the level of any user in good standing. My request that my old accounts be returned to me amounted to a desire to be made whole, again. Since they've taken all viable options off the table, I'm going to flaunt all their rules. That doesn't mean I'm a vandal, or going to speak in multiple voices in discussions ;> The edits I've made with undisclosed accounts are good and useful.
The wiki is entering a totalitarian stage. They're now making it even harder for users to return (although I believe some should never' return; Ottava, for example). No one that gets entangled with "GovCom" is ever going to emerge un-neutered. My advice is don't bother trying to abide, just move on, either to a new account, or to something else. The meta-picture is that for years the trolls and vandals have encouraged a "fight" culture and it's become ambient. Most energy now is directed at dealing with disputes of one sort or another. It's been quite peacful editing with undisclosed accounts; much like the project was back in 2004. Not terribly viable, of course. Huge numbers of The Hounds of Zaroff infest this place; it's all hunting real people to them. Target shooting, with live targets, some of whom are pilloried.
