⚠️ 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!

MySQL is a huge Microsoft spreadsheet that people take classes for because they cant use consoles. Built for speed at the expense of getting your database corrupted. Correct usage of MySQL will result in a database error. If you cannot access Encyclopedia Dramatica, you should blame MySQL all the time, even if you don't understand what it is. It will make you look smart. Really (see below for proof).
What the hell is SQL?
- In short, SQL is a Database.
- What the hell is a Database?
- A database is an organized collection of information.
- The information can be names, phone numbers, passwords, posts between users, etc.
- For example: online communities rely heavily on databases to keep track of user login information.
- Pretty much every bit of persistent and modifiable information on a website resides in a database.
- The database not only stores this information, but organizes it, and facilitates easy searching of its entries.
- So what the hell is SQL?
- MySQL is a particular type of Database.
- Just as you can have different kinds of containers for storing items, you can have different kinds of databases for storing information.
- Every container has its own characteristics, pros and cons.
- MySQL happens to offer a lot of things that many developers like, and as a result, has become something of a standard in the web industry.
Q: Is search working?
A: No, it is because of MySQL.
