⚠️ 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



    Parody account

    From Encyclopedia Dramatica
    Jump to navigation Jump to search

    A parody account is a popular method of trolling, whereby one user creates an account where the name is almost identical to another user or community. This method of trolling can be applied outside to most any social media sites, as well as lesser sites. The main purpose of this is to satirize this person, usually aided by serial adding and/or commenting in as many other people's accounts/pages as possible. It's also very useful for making the fans of a certain user butthurt. Many lulz can be had in this way, by impersonating mods and threatening users with the banhammer.

    Parody accounts may be suspended within a few hours of their creation depending on the site (Failbook and twitter are usually safe though) due to the fairly obvious fact that their purpose is to harass. This only means one thing: GOTTA GO FAST!

    Common methods

    Character replacement

    Certain ASCII characters are similar in appearance, leading to swapping of certain characters that goes initially unnoticed. This is largely dependent on the font used of the target site.

    Examples:

    • I and l (bonus points if used on a site where these have the exact same appearance)
    • O and 0
    • | and l
    • m and n (best used when the target has a long username)

    Hidden characters

    Certain communities can not process certain characters in their usernames. In these rare cases, it is possible to copy the target's exact name as long as these characters are attached, leading to confusion of mods that have no idea what the fuck they're doing.

    "Relative"

    This technique is used mainly by lazy fucks. It involves simply involves the copying of a popular user's name while adding the suffix "'s" followed by Mom/Dad/Son/Cousin/Niggerslave/Dyke/etc....
