⚠️ 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!
Mark Prindle is one of the most prolific music reviewers on the internets, and in fact has actually had his website up for at least 10 years. Unlike other music critics, a Mark Prindle review is never TL;DR. He has always had a knack for being able to lulzify his record reviews, due to the fact that he is basically batshit crazy when writing them.
He reviews a lot of punk rock groups, but also a lot of other shit as well across a plethora of genres. He has also conducted many, many interviews with famous musicians, many of which are found on his site and some are quite incomprehensible because of you not being able to understand the context in which they were carried out.
Here are a few quotes just to demonstrate how zany Mark Prindle can be.
Mark Prindle used to have an article on TOW, but the deletionist scum got to him and now he has been denied an article, despite the fact that anon spammed the AFD with a shitload of references where he'd been mentioned in books and all sorts of shit. However since the Wikifags disregard new contributors' work due to the hierarchy that cannot assume good faith on the part of anon, the article remains deleted to this day.
He also mentions an indie band called "!!!", or "CHK CHK CHK" in the Richard Hell interview. Sceptre knows well about CHK CHK CHK, as when on the MediaWiki title blacklist on Wikipedia responding to Grawp vandalism, Sceptre raised concerns about blacklisting three exclamation marks, just in case the band released a new album with three exclamation marks in the title. Whilst irrelevant to Mark Prindle, there is also a title whitelist containing good white titles that are not blocked as opposed to the nasty, dirty, black ones which is pretty much proof that Wikipedia is racist if you could find evidence for it. Wikipedia is also clearly an advocate of ethnic purity; due to the blacklist being altered with an edit summary of "if you're mixing Cyrillic and Greek in one title, you're probably up to no good (will allow simplifying the HAGGER regexps, but too tired to do that now)".
All of this is pretty much as relevant to Prindle as any of his reviews are to the band or artist in question, lol.
