⚠️ 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!
A k-line (aka "kill") is the penultimate IRC ban, booting a user from an entire IRC server. K-lines are only a half-step under the dreaded G-line (Global-line) ban, which bans you from the entire network, and one can only assume it was named K-line because the nerd that wrote IRC was seriously dyslexic. (Spoilers: K-Line = "Kill Line". G-Line = Global Kill Line)
K-lines are only passed out by the IRC server's operators (called IRCops), but they are generally too busy eating donuts at the IRCoffeeShop, or playing #MW2 in their IRCondo to really police the place the way that a website's message board moderators do. Essentially, unlike perma-bans, it's impossible to say something so stupid, inflamitory, or spiteful that the IRCops will ever notice you. In order to actually get them to IRCapYoAss, you have to do something extraordinarily trollish (even for IRC), like DCC spam the IRCops personally with furry porn or dDoS the network, or be from a foreign country!
Since anyone can change their ident on IRC to escape a lazy IRCop's k-line (or change their IP, if their ISP has dynamic IP adresses), many resort to simply k-lining entire ISPs, like AOL or entire countries. This is because IRCops are too fucking stupid to just use a type 2 banmask (*!*@some.cawk.shit.4chan.org), thinking that they can show off their 1337 IRC skills to their fuckbuddies and improve their e-penis by using an ident ban. I mean, I'm pretty sure every single person in Brazil was in on that DOS attack, anyway!
