⚠️ 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!
Pickbothmanlol (Andrew Crogonk irl and later known as Fluttershy~enwiki) is a Wikipedia vandal and sockpuppeter from Montgomery, Alabama who, during his short vandalism campaign, attempted to draw as much attention as Grawp while playing games with TOW admins in the style of Bambifan101. Needless to say, he was less than successful, being reverted, blocked, and ignored with every sock account.
A year later, he returned to Wikipedia, not to troll, but rather to start a fresh life as the prototypical Wikipedia aspie, under the name Fluttershy (previously Rainbow Dash). Having the same level of autism as most WP users, PBML would have likely never have been caught if he had not repeatedly supported the deletion of the GNAA page, a known death trap for any Wikipedo.

Early Life on YouTube
PBML began his career as a vandal in response to a vanity page he wrote for his YouTube channel being deleted twice. Unhappy with the lack of attention received from abiding by the rules, PBML decided he would be noticed more if he were to build a reputation similar to that of Grawp or Willy on Wheels. Beginning on the English Wikipedia, where he was at one point a valid contributor, PBML's "trolling" consisted of butthurt VfD's as well as editing controversial articles, usually the Encyclopedia Dramatica page. He was banned three times, until the community finally decided to put an end to his 1337 trollery.
From then on out, he continuously made sock puppets with seemingly no actual attempts to troll from them, but merely to spread his name across TOW, several of them containing his powerword. What a smart little guy.
The Wikimedia saga
PBML who shortly was unblocked twice after an IRC convo decided to declare war on Simple Wikipedia. Unlike TOW, it's simple counterpart had a weakness that could give him the edge he needed to establish control for a short while as the leader of the Committee of Users who shared hatred for bureaucratic fucks and the site's government. Vandalism on Recent Changes is the dream of any vandal as without it, Wikipedia would be almost stripped of its anti-vandalism defenses. Despite that sentence, this was not the first time it was done, with Willy being the first to do it. Pickbothmanlol even went right up and stole the exact same diff.
PBML briefly trolled CWC, with just as little success as every other comment-posting 13-year-old on YouTube. Several prank calls were made, and the CWCki was responsible for further stroking of his ego, until he claimed to have a botnet, caused some trouble, and got booted off.
Return to Wikipedia
A year after his "epic raids" on the WMF had ended, PBML returned as Fluttershy~enwiki, not to vandalize, but rather edit and create My Little Pony related pages. He soon became an IRC regular, and was even granted rollback rights, lol irony. Creating such pages as Equestria Daily and BroNYcon, he eventually found it necessary to create WikiProject My Little Pony, a portal which he moderated with an iron fist.
As the ways of the Wikipedian tainted his mind, he soon began to hate the disruption of his encyclopedia, despite being a "prolific vandal" in the past life. Thus, he rallied for the take down of the informative, and notable GNAA article, not like it hadn't been tried before.
He Doesn't Deny Any Accusations
Censored SPI Discussion
Because Wikipedia is not censored, the original discussion relating to his sockpuppetry, featured below, was removed.
< Fluttershy-ENG> I am giving my notice to the community that I am retiring from Wikipedia. < pir^2> O_____O < AfterDeath> k, bye < DictatorofEurope> ...!!! < pir^2> hi < tjf> Fluttershy-ENG, Why? < Fluttershy-ENG> due to an obvious fact that the GNAA will go to all lengths to troll me off.
One of the longest unblock appeals in TOW history
Additional Trolling Attempts
|Did You Know: Despite his claims, Pickbothmanlol was never a member of the NCF, but a mere IHM-wannabe.|
He has also attempted to make a name for himself by prank calling random BTR shows with typical listener bases of 4-7.
After delivering several pats on the back to himself over such hilarity, PBML attempted to join the BWC, only to be rejected, which is quite sad, considering their members are known botnet-buyers.
