⚠️ 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!
The LiveJournal Abuse Team is an unprofessional group of volunteers and employees who enforce the LJ Terms of Service. While the LJ TOS are fairly clear, the LiveJournal Abuse Team has been known to interpret them broadly — accusing LJ members of violating the DMCA, for example, when the policy document itself clearly states that the copyright holder must first complain before a violation can occur. On the other hand, it's probably easy to get a little testy when you have to deal with trolls, child porn, and Internet suicides all day long.
The oft-maligned volunteers of the LiveJournal Abuse Team make decisions about alleged violations. Lacking any real world experience, the abuse team's decisions often seem arbitrary and capricious to users, and oftentimes are. The Abuse Team often refers to specific legal terms like "liability," "identity theft," "harassment" or "copyright violation" without ever having those terms explained by an attorney. The team is headed by rahaeli and markf, and is composed of volunteers, and Sandy, who holds a job due to nepotism.
A lot of attention has been paid to the now infamous and no longer secret secret policy document, which proposes guidelines for consequences for TOS infractions. It was leaked to the Internets with working feedback buttons, prompting LJ Abuse staffers to condemn the action. Many critics claimed this as proof that the Abuse Team clings to secret policies preventing LJ users from truly complying with the Terms of Service. Some staffers still treat the document as if it were a "trade secret" in outright denial that it is published on the LJ site.
Current scientific theories are that LJ Abuse volunteers are all such malignant internet tumors entirely because they are not allowed to use Viewall. Christians dispute this theory and instead claim that it is is due entirely to unintelligent hiring.
