⚠️ 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!
PGP also known as Pretty Good Privacy is an encryption tool used to hide your files and emails from the Partyvan. It was created in 1991 by some random Hippie named Phil Zimmermann who wanted to have lulz at the NSA's expense.
Due to the lulz he was having at hiding his CP, the Partyvan decided to pay good ol' Phil a visit and investigate him for exporting munitions without a license as key generating encryption programs that create keys longer than 40-bits are classified as munitions for some strange reason. Perhaps someone can throw a PGP key at you and you'll die.
Basically, PGP allows you to create what's known as a Key Pair, a Public Key which gets posted on a Key Server and you email to all of your non-existant friends, and a Secret Key which remains on your device and is protected by a passcode other that Password123 or something really lame like that. In order to read your encrypted emails, the a user needs your Public Key, so be smart and post it to a keyserver or include it as a signature attachment.
Your Public Key is also used to digitally sign your emails so no one can DISREGARD THAT I SUCK COCKS you. So basically the Public Key verifies that you, the shmuck and loser that you are, sent the email, therefore it's legit.
If your Secret Key gets compromised because you, like a moron, wrote it down and taped it underneath your keyboard, you can revoke the key and a revocation certificate and create a new one. It's not Rocket Science but of course anything that doesn't involve fapping, torrents, or stalking is obviously too difficult for you.
