⚠️ 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!
Mitchell Rasansky is a Dallas city councilperson and one of the stupidest fucking people who has ever lived.
The Bat Incident
In 2005, a Dallas-area Boy Scout built three bat houses and installed them in a local park in order to level up his scout ranking and acquire higher attributes and the ability to ride a mount. When Rasansky found out about this Park Department-sanctioned project, he promptly showed up at a city council meeting wearing plastic Dracula teeth and denounced both the Park Department and the scout. The estimated 600 bats that would roost in the houses, Rasansky said, would obviously be dangerous to the city, because everyone knows that bats are evil creatures which drink people's blood. In fact, Austin, a scant 300 miles away from Dallas, is home to many millions of Mexican freetail bats each year, and of course noone is killed because the vast majority of bat species subsist on insects, not the blood of peasant farmers, as everyone outside of Dallas is aware.
Of course, the bat houses were eventually pulled down by the city, because Dallas has a level of scientific sophistication comparable to that of Nigeria.
Actual Rasansky Quotes
- "I know his name," Mr. Rasansky said, referring to the Boy Scout. "His name is Count Dracula."
- "Am I supposed to take a wooden stake and a cross over there?" Rasansky said, this time referring to the park where the obviously harmless bat houses were built. "I'm not going over there. Would you go over there? You're crazy."
- "I have enough people to take care of in my district. I don't need a colony of bats," he said. "We want people in our parks, not flying mice."
- "Where do they want to stay, the Hilton?" Mr. Rasansky asked, referring to the bats, who probably would have declined such an offer in light of the fact that the Hilton is filled with people, which bats do not eat, whereas the park where they were originally staying is filled with bugs, which bats do indeed eat.
