⚠️ 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!
Plan9 is an operating system developed by the same people who made UNIX, primarily because they felt that UNIX had become too mainstream and was no longer cool. Its mascot is some sort of weird bunny thing.
The first version of Plan 9 was written last thursday in the bowels of Bell Labs. It was the final and most successful attempt at creating an operating system to successfully keep mankind from making sunlight explode (plans 1-8 were miserable failures). Its creators decided to improve upon the capabilities of UNIX, namely as they realized that the huge, inefficient mainframes they all loved were being obsoleted in favor of smaller desktop computers and 1337 h4x0r could use to pirate music and DDoS Web sites. Plan 9 was the natural next step, as it allowed many of these new computers to be mercilessly tied together to run as a beloved mainframe.
Plan 9 has many features:
- rio. Plan 9's GUI, rio, is the most advanced GUI ever created. It combines the things that make UNIX users shout with glee (the command line, scripting, etc.) with the things that make Mac OS X users wet their pants (windows, pointers, etc.). All other operating systems strive to have a GUI as intuitive, durable, and powerful as rio. If a Mac user tells you otherwise, it is a lie.
- Distributed resources. Plan 9 allows you to share everything on your computer - files, hardware, and all - easily over the network. Thus, it allows your computer to rape and be raped in ways never before possible.
- Rational thought. Though sentience had been a prominent feature in UNIX since 1979, Plan 9 improved upon this by allowing the computer to think rationally and creatively. Thus, whenever using Plan 9 one must imagine all text as being spoken in a sophisticated British accent.
- Web browser. It does have one.
In general, Plan 9 is used by as many as 17 people worldwide. Despite the operating system's numerous advantages, their primary motivation is to be able to one-up everyone else in OS flame wars.

Recently, Anonymous has taken an interest in Plan 9, with many a thread in 4chan's /g/ being created on the subject. It is unclear as to why so many anons have been taking to the system; one theory is that they are trying to created a new, totally distributed chan on the Interweb. More likely, they just want easy access to each other's porn. It is also possible that the distributed nature of Plan 9, with a system using resources from many others over a network, reminds a lot of /b/tards of tentacle porn.
