⚠️ 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

    Niggaz Wit Attitude (commonly shortened as N.W.A.; active: 1986-1991) was a west coast hip-hop group from the ghetto town of Compton, California. They are most commonly known for their song, "Fuck tha Police" which was written about the corrupt LAPD. In response to the song, the FBI wrote a butthurt hate-mail letter to the record company who produced the song, stating that they "disapproved" of the song's lyrics and arguing that the song misrepresented the police. Due to the controversy of many of their songs' "explicit" lyrics, their songs have been b& from several mainstream radio stations. Despite this, they somehow managed to sell over 10 million records. Apparently, their songs are disrespectful towards women and are intended to glorify drugs and crime.

    FBI Letter to N.W.A.

    On August 1, 1989, the assistant director of the Office of Public Affairs in the FBI wrote the producer of N.W.A.'s Straight Outta Compton album a butthurt letter regarding the lyrics of the song, "Fuck tha Police". The letter itself, very basic and cut to the chase, claimed that a simple rap song "encourages" violence against the police. By trying to back up his claim with statistics, Miltard fails to realize that that violence against the pigs existed long before the song was ever released. This faggot is even so confident that everyone will agree with him that he ends the letter with, "I believe my views reflect the opinion of the entire law enforcement community."

    Dear Mr. Manganiello,

           A song recorded by the rap group N.W.A. on their album entitled "Straight Outta Compton" encourages violence against and disrespect for the law enforcement officer and has been brought to my attention.  I understand that your company recorded and distributed this album, and I am writing to share my thoughts and concerns with you.

           Advocating assault and violence is wrong, and we in the law enforcement community take exception to such action. Violent crime, a major problem in our country, reached an unprecedented high in 1988.  Seventy-eight law enforcement officers were feloniously slain in the line of duty during 1988, four more than in 1987.  Law enforcement officers dedicate their lives to the protection of our citizens, and recordings, such as the one from N.W.A. are both discouraging and degrading to these brave, dedicated officers.

    Music plays a significant role in society, and I wanted you to be aware of the FBI's position relative to this song and its message.  I believe my views reflect the opinion of the entire law enforcement community.


    Sincerely yours,
    Milt Ahlerich
    Assistant Director
    Office of Public Affairs
