⚠️ 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!
KDE is an artifact from an older time, a time when the internets were just starting out, a time when the internets were not jam packed with morons and assclowns. Simply put: a time when there was a lull in the lulz.
Back before Al Gore performed his magic, one had to use a modem to get online. This would normally be accomplished by dialing in to a BBS. Once there and eager to download porn, the basement dweller would select a protocol to deliver his porn. At the time the most common protocols were X-Modem, Z-Modem, and Kermit. Kermit was the most popularest since it had advanced features such as error correction, allowing a higher number of ungarbled tits per hour. KDE actually stood for 'Kermit Duplication Error'. It occurred when the user was too busy masturbating to realize that they had already begun downloading an image and initiated another image transfer. Kermit, being created before multitasking had been discovered, could not deal gracefully with this two-transfer scenario and the streams would became crossed. After the files finished downloading Kermit would regain its composure and alert the user that this error had occurred. Sadly, all the hours spent waiting for porn were done so in vain as the anticipated porn actually consisted of disjointed blocks of non-flesh tones strewn about the monitor randomly. Many fearless nerds would masturbate to these images in an act of pure desperation, thus creating the field of Abstract Art.
In the modern era, the aforementioned usage of KDE has become archaic. Thus when a bunch of foreigners began using the term to refer to their rip-off of Windows no one noticed or cared. The only people who realize that KDE even exists are the people behind GNOME, who are just pissed that they were unable to copy Microsoft first.
