⚠️ 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!
Wikipedia notability criteria are described in detail on the page WP:Notability. This page has so complex content that a mere mortal is hardly able to understand what it speaks about. Just take the definition of notability:
And then begins explanation to the reader in great detail, what the word "if" means, what means "significant coverage" and so on. And of course, not every newbie has enough patience to read this wall of text, and even to understand what is in question there. If you are afraid that this text sometimes do not understand Wikipedia's administrators, you are not far from the truth.
What makes something Non-notable
When you're supposed to be compiling the sum of all human knowledge, some people might ask what constitutes an non-notable subject. A satisfactory answer has yet to be given, so the admins of Wikipedia have decided to interpret it the way they do with every other rule: Whatever the fuck they feel like. This is why Encyclopedia Dramatica has had its article deleted three times while real shit no one cares about like Nazi mysticism and Apple pie are considered quality, high grade academic knowledge.

The internet law known as Geogre's Law, named after the regular Wikipedo partaker Geogre, states that "There is a strong positive correlation between the surname of a biographical subject's article not being capitalised and the subject's non-notability". This is due to 13-year-old boys abusing the search function instead of typing it in in the web address with caps. This also frequently applies on Encyclopedia Dramatica, and is known to make certain uptight users rage.
