⚠️ 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

    NetWare by Novell is quite possibly one of the greatest software products of all time. That is, if greatness to you is an application's complete inability to solve any apparent problem. Novell created NetWare to satisfy two requests:

    • IT directors asking themselves the common question, "Hmm, I'm running a Windows network, but since I'm completely out of my fucking mind, I don't want to use any Microsoft networking. LOL I PREFER SOFTWARE FREE AS IN BEER LINUX RULEZ???"
    • IT directors wanting to Profit but not smart enough to use UNIX (hence everything done in All Caps).

    Using NetWare is vaguely like using Microsoft's Active Directory, in that NetWare is based on LDAP (Lame Directory Anarchy Protocol). However, NetWare has a lot more of the gay in it, and uses a bizarre filesystem, file sharing protocol, and requires an installation of MS DOS to initialize itself. Seriously. Shutting down a NetWare system leaves you at a C:\NETWARE> prompt. To restart the network, type "DEL *.* /S" (without the quotes, moron!) then hit <Enter> (See Using below, #3).

    But even more than that, NetWare is just bad. It might have been great when Windows Server and Linux didn't exist, back in the days when 686 Processors dominated the server scene, but now there's no use for it. Its an operating system made just to torment operators. If you or anyone you know uses Netware for personal lulz, please kill them immediately.

    Using NetWare

    1. BuyGet a copy of NetWare (65535 360K floppy images) off the Internets.
    2. Kill yourself for being a retard
    3. Install Windows Server 2003
    4. Badmouth Linux for the lulz.
    5. Install Linux (Requires replacement of the keyboard which has its CAPSLOCK key SuperGlued down)
    6. Badmouth Windows Server 2003 for the lulz
    7. Stab yourself in eyeballs while watching firefly
    8. Masterbate to the girls dorm cameras you run through the Eth lines (we know this is why you installed it in the first place)
    9. ????
    10. PROFIT!!!!
