⚠️ 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!
Rick James is the name of an IRL hoax perpetrated by Dave Chappelle from February 1, 1948 to February 11, 2004. This is considered by many to be the single greatest hoax in history and many people wonder how Dave managed to create a character, release music under that character's name and do shit loads of drugs before he was even born. The hoax proved that we are all "Rick James' Bitch" figuratively speaking.
Many people believe that "Rick James" was a songwriter, musician and producer. This is despite the fact that for the exception of "Super Freak" (made famous by MC Hammer), no one actually knows any of his music. At that point, Rick began to get angry due to the fact that no one really listened to his shit and later beat his girlfriend that he later figured out was 50 Cent's mother. "Rick James" was also the "producer" of Eddie Murphy's single "Party All the Time" and if that isn't proof of a hoax then I don't know what is.
Quitting Hoax Forever
After Dave Chappelle thoroughly pwned the entire universe with his hoax, he decided to do the only honorable thing: kill off the character. This stands in sharp contrast to Saturday Night Live pimping out every funny or unfunny sketch to Hollywood. After one final performance, Rick James was killed off on August 6, 2004.
