⚠️ 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

    Oh exploitable, a TOW administrator at work. Indeed, this is the guy with a stranglehold on the world's primary source of information!

    Ryan Postlethwaite is a full-time chav and part-time Wikipedia admin. He's earned "most hated status" from the Wikipedia Review, not for outrageous acts of admin abuse, but for daring to prove that you can edit TOW and still have a life. Sadly as Wikipedia is a forsaken land ruled by aspies and bitter retirees, being anything remotely close to an alpha male makes you a celebrity. Thus a uniquely unqualified twenty-something alcoholic became an admin with ease.

    To this day, Ryan still has groupies such as Sceptre fawning on his talk page and bitches like Phaedriel and Persian Poet Gal begging for a barnstar. It is also rumored that he is the on-again, off-again boytoy of the notorious cougar and fellow mod Alison.

    Although he is quick to deny editing under the influence, Ryan is actually Wikipedia's equivalent of the drunken live-in boyfriend your mom had when you were growing up. As a result Ryan's incessant (only when he's pissed) abuse towards other Wikipedians, his user page has been vandalized innumerable times.

    Typical barnstars Ryan has received

    These are FOR REAL!

    Recognition of his award-winning schlong has sparked criticism from Jayen, a fellow editor.

    Oh jesus, I had to reply to this one. I haven't once suggested that I'm a mature adult who displays mature judgement. Quite the opposite actually - I like going out, getting smashed and ending up in some random place because I don't know what's going on. I'm bloody 22 and a student, this is what most students do! Maybe when I'm 30, I'll calm down and be sensible, but I'll always look back and be pleased with the times that I've had. I don't try and impress anyone with what I do, especially not on WP - it's just a hobby and I've got plenty of people to gain respect off in RL to not give a damn what people think of me on a bloody website, so if you think I say things to get respect or climb the Wiki-ladder then you're wrong, very wrong indeed.

    Now, that doesn't mean that I'm off my face all the time - I've only edited a couple of times whilst under the influence, not a big fan really because I've got other things to do when I'm pissed! Maybe some people sit in, have a bottle of whiskey and edit the pedia - not me, I go out with the boys when I want to have it large!
