⚠️ 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



    MySpace Suicide

    This page contains an hero.

    On November 29, 2005, another useless, suburbanite teen exercised his God-given right to end his alleged "pain". In a "symbolic" final blog, Joshua Anson Ballard (screen name Jloveb and later dubbed the MySpace Suicide Kid) informed his friends and family, who if had actually cared may have caused him to evade suicide, that he had taken his life, thoughtful to add countless misspellings to thereafter increase the hilarity of the situation. Quickly after making local news, some of the YTMND crew picked up on the incident and instantly began spawning "X's MySpace Suicide" sites, securing Josh's status as a piece of internet culture to be enjoyed for many years to come. Furthered by the relentless abuse originating from Josh's "friends" (read "XxX YOU FUXING ASSHOLS STOP THIS RITE NOW, RIP JOSH ~ XxX"), the YTMNDers continued to make use of Josh, long after the novelty wore off and his community forgot about his existence entirely. Even in YTMND's now-dead state, the occasional MySpace Suicide will be created, a true reminiscence of a better e-time.

    What really happened

    You people make me sick... suicide isn't funny, it's hilarious

    Growing up in a self-described "broken home", Josh woke up every morning fearing his shoes might get muddy or he would wind up in some related life-devastating predicament. Despite having food, clothing, a suburban home, and countless video games to null his mind with, Josh's teenage life was without question, broken. The accumulation of being dumped and mocked at school was far worse than his repetition of the 4th grade due to the inability to spell his name (not a joke). After said years of prolonged hardship, Josh snapped and made the ultimatum to end his existence. Requesting his friends do his broken life a "favore", Josh self-doxed quickly before blowing his brains out in his parent's bathroom. Almost immediately, The Borg reared its ugly head.

    Whiny Emo bullshit music.


       
     
    He killed himself over a girl "and other things," writes Flower King Of Flies on MySpace, who says the death was preventable. "This could of ben stoped," he says via a Myspace comment page that has become Josh's memorial. "All the people that knew didnt do shit. i had a good time with u in ceramics. f--- all your friends that did nothing."
     

     
     

    Two losers bitch about their lives.

    Immediate and other consequences

    After the emo's death and reverting action. Emo to the core.


    Two days after the death, a YTMND spawned, poking fun at Josh's BROKEN life and his angst-ridden choice to end it. Quickly reaching "classic" status, spin-off sites began popping up across YTMND, and eventually leaking into SA and 4chan. The fad consisted of shopped "you BROKE my X" images, always accompanied by the screeching "HOW COULD THIS HAPPEN TO MEEEEEEEEEEEEE" of Simple Plan's "Untitled".

    The first time he ever saw a bath.

    Meanwhile, trolls had infested Josh's MySpace, enraging his "friends" with only kind comments regarding Josh, his educational history, and his motives for suicide. Countered with "JUST IGNORE THE HATERS JOSH", these comments from his former peers, while motivational in nature, had no effect on Josh as he was dead. Eventually some uber-leet hexers compromised the account, likely after guessing the correct password (which undoubtedly was his name followed by a single number), and proceeded to wreck irreversible havoc on the lone, abandon, MySpace account.

    About the emo himself

    Before the emo's death.

    He walked by the internets handle of "you BROKE my LIFE" (capitalization preserved), loved "girls who cry"; was married; was 8 feet, 11 inches tall and made $250,000 a year or more. He was a smartass. He posted self-portraits that featured him at his emo-kid best: shaggy hair, pouting lips, acne scars, intentionally blank expression. He posted an ad for a clothing company called Emo Police that featured a man hanging from the P. His last words were reported to be "I made my mistakes, got nowhere to run, the night goes on as I'm fading away, I'm sick of this life, I just want to scream, 'How could this happen to me?'"

    Joshua Ballard (his real name) was also a member of secret United States intelligence agency S.A.F.E when he was alive.
