⚠️ 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!

Nobody knows what exactly happened with Project Monterrey, but it was supposed to make SCO famous, and make a lot of money for IBM. It was a plan to merge UNIX with IBMs *nix OSes. The old code from UNIX and AIX lacked drivers, so IBM and SCO tried to get people to help out; nobody did. When it was discovered that Linux was actually free, IBM killed Project Monterrey. In 2003, SCO declared that they discovered code from Project Monterrey hidden inside Linux -- and that all Linux users would have to pay money for using it. Soon the litigation started. Novell stepped in and stated that SCO didn't have the right to sue anybody since they still had the rights to UNIX. SCO then decided to sue Novell, declaring that Novell was just not funny.
In 2005, the courts asked IBM to hand over 80 gigabytes of all their Project Monterrey code to SCO. This is in the hopes that SCO will find some UNIX code in Linux. It is doubtful they will find it.
