⚠️ 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!
Just when you thought it couldn't get gayer than Emo, along comes New Romantic. Often called New Wave, New Romantic started in the 80's as an excuse for men to wear make-up and loath life, like the Generation X nobodies they all are. Men dressed themselves like women (because androgyny is like, so cool), and women dress themselves like Gothic Medieval Revivalists. New Romantics listen to "bands" like Spandex Ballet, Classix Asteroix and XX AXALYYI FROM OUTER SPACE.
- FACT! The term New Romantic is actually an oxymoron as there is nothing new or romantic about it.
New Romantic Music
New Romantic music is pretty much just 80's synth-pop with an air of elitism and pretentiousness about it. At the peak of New Romantic, the most state of the art synthesizers around were Casio model Hammond organs (remember that little battery powered keyboard you had as a child? Bash out a 4/4 beat, hold any key and moan about life. Hey presto! New Romantic!).
You and me could write a New Romance
New Romantic in the modern day is an underground movement, but that hasn't made it any less gay. In fact, it has been noted by Senior Encyclopedia Dramatica faggotry researchers that New Romantic is staging a revival. Hipsters everywhere can be seen shaving the side of their heads, wearing bow-ties and Ben Shermans, buying the most ridiculously pointy shoes possible and generally crossing the gender line.
