⚠️ 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.

    Not be confused with

    Note: This article should not be confused with this one.

    Syntagm: not [to] be confused with
    Frequent syntactic variants:
    • should not be confused with
    • not, however, be confused with
    • could not potentially be confused with
    Real, blindsiding, indirectly conveyed meaning: [you] do not confuse! (imperative-mood verb)

    One of the most information-theorically redundant, trite, overused verbal phrases on Wikipedia. Among all overused phrases, in the same league as citation needed and some argue. Includes variants with modal verbs and inserted adverbs. Especially annoying because the writer is such a fucking, effeminate homo that he doesn't have the balls to address the reader directly with the second-person singular-number personal pronoun instead of the impersonal infinitive form of the copulative verb to be, and because the writer preaches to the reader like a supposed Internet tough guy.

    Example: [Novodevichy Convent] should not be confused with the Novodevichy Cemetery in Saint Petersburg.

    Moar examples with the GOOG phrase not-*-be-confused-with:


    Not to be confused with x, after typical is one of the most common phrases on ED. Not to confuse you or anything, but a lot of things on the internets sound alike. Or have similar meaning words. And shit.
