⚠️ 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!
Red Shirt Guy
When one thinks of the world's greatest works of fiction, inevitably the classic World of Warcraft comes to mind. This beautifully crafted and intricate universe is deeply intertwined with our own, portraying societal issues like conjuring water from the ground, or killing wrinkly, short monsters with huge noses that carry gold with them. Cue WoW novice-researcher and Falstad Wildhammer's (if you don't know who that is you need to go read a book you ignorant fuck) number-one fan, Red Shirt Guy.
The story begins innocently enough at Blizzcon 2010 (think E3 but for even fatter and sweatier neckbeards), when our hero dares to challenge the glorious lore of World of Warcraft. When others simply dismissed the apparent loss of the great Falstad Wildhammer as his inevitable fate, a young WoW fan decided to ask the tough questions. He slowly approached the microphone to finally settle the fate of his hero Mr. Wildhammer with the panel participants, apparent creators of this universe.
—HOLY TITS it's a conspiracy
This massive plot hole was, no doubt, extremely embarrassing for the company. In a desperate attempt to avoid public ridicule (not to mention an exponential decline in share-value), the designers tried to gloss over their crippling humiliation by sarcastically thanking Red Shirt Guy and giving assurances that they would fix the incongruity. On the following day - when news of the event, predictably, went viral - share value plummeted, the company declared bankruptcy and Blizzard's entire staff got shitcanned.
Who is our mysterious hero?
In the aftermath of this debacle, Red Shirt Guy decided to give the world his version of events, and stunned onlookers with the revelation that he has Asperger's. ...And not a single fuck was given that day.

Blizzard has responded by immortalizing Red Shirt Guy within the game universe. He is now an NPC known as Wildhammer Fact Checker. A developer recently confirmed it on the WoW forums.
