⚠️ 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

    Typical computer

    Legacy computers are anything more than a week old. It's a nice way of saying, "Hey you computer is shit and I've made this software especially shitty for your computer, enjoy." Legacy computers can't do shit.

    Why They Exist

    People are such cheap bastards that can't go to newegg.com and buy a decent computer for around 10,000 dollars. A result of their cheapness is an interest in Linux, which is fast only on slow computers.

    The US Government's oldest computers, heading for their 60th birthdays and still calculating your taxes


    What can I do?

    Take me to your leaSTACK OVERFLOW
    • Not use Linux
    • Purchase the most expensive computer you can find, wait a month, and repeat.
    • ????
    • PROFIT
    • Speak to aliens. Two of the US Government's oldest legacy machines are currently 12.5bn miles away from Earth and heading out the solar system. ET is gonna be real impressed by our snazzy 69.63 kB of memory, encoded on state of the art digital 8-track tape.

    Classification

    Intel is working on a smaller model due by this October next June last Thursday.

    Legacy PCs usually are known as the following:

    • Macs (common yuppy masturbation device)
    • Anything without an Official Windows 9 Certified sticker.
    • Less than 32 GB DDR3 ram
    • Only 4 cores
    • Non-dual-layer-blu-ray-DVD-disk-drives
    • Computers with clogged tubes, i.e. Google Chrome
    • Any computer that dies when you take out the ram while it is running.
      • Cheat Code: Trade your used-up, rotten Fleshlight on Craigslist for a legacy computer, affix an Official Windows Vista Certified sticker to the chassis, and then sell it on Craigslist (with a picture including the sticker) for a tidy profit: more than enough to buy a new Fleshlight!
