⚠️ 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



    Nerdcore

    From Encyclopedia Dramatica
    Jump to navigation Jump to search

    Nerdcore refers to the Nerdcore music genre or Nerdcore internet scene. Nerdcore's a sub-genre of hip hop spawned in large part due to legions of manboys' eternal love of internets, science, ancient consoles, shitty DOS games, and nostalgia for childhoods filled with plastic crap.

    Fans

    As opposed to hip hop, it should be noted that Nerdcore is produced and consumed by a 99.9% white demographic.

    Not to be confused with wiggers, the nerdcore fanboi/fangirl tends to be the more self aware than your average ebonic spouting, suburban white-bread faggot. Nerdcore fans both shamelessly bathe in their own hopeless, pale-faced geekdom, whilst at the same time maintaining a healthy loathe for most other wigger faggotry. The fanbase is largely internet-based to begin with, the lion's share of productions being released OTI independently, as the online "community" is known for being tight-nit with its fair share of elitist faggots. Most nerdcore fans and artists tend to distance themselves from anything "mainstream" altogether (as all subcultures do), facepalming at most of the house/trance/Top 40 faggotry that flood our tubes these days, thus most nerdcore fags are fervently dedicated to the genre, exclusively.

    Style

    To save you from a shitload of ambiguous tl;dr you'll find everywhere else, it is simply defined by topic and lyric, not necessarily style - science fiction and geek-culture as its primary inspiration; hip hop as basis for form. Sampling of ancient DOS and 8bit video games is the norm, sometimes giving the music a flavor similar to chiptunes, but it is never usually that electronically based, sounds ranging greatly.

    Common topics include internets, ones 1337 prowess wit cumputoors, WoW, Star Trek, Star Wars, and, due to obsessive lust for retro, any number of old school text-based PC or IRL role playing games, D&D, MTG...you get the gist.

    Although it has spawned largely due to lonely childhoods filled with bleeps and blips, it's been said the genre itself also originated partially as reaction towards the drastic downturn and fashion-show-like faggotry of the hip hop genre and related culture in the late 90's (basically after P Diddy left an enormous shitstain on it). Thus, nerdcore flourished with the internet-saavy and largely white fanbase who'd became fed up with bling-hop and the epic industry circlejerking...
