⚠️ 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.

HIT THE ROAD, BITCH!
(Crybaby creed shamelessly stolen from NorthBySouthBaranof).
Ryulong, aka Jewdong, aka Michael Dustin Cohen✡, is a 27 year old Jewish Otakukin living with his plastic crap and body pillow in his parents' basement near New York City. Like most Jews, he grew up (so to speak) in Long Island, New York. His college years were spent in Miami, preparing to fulfill his dream of becoming an ultraweeb by learning Japanese and saving enough money to move to Japan. In addition to being a panty-sniffing weeb, he is also a disgraced Wikipedia sysop, having been stripped of his sysop in a tortuous ArbCom case and in 2015 was banned altogether for accepting bribes from feminazis to edit the GamerGate article for them (or, so it would be if Wikipedia wasn't run by elitist fucks that care more about Power Rangers than their own rules). PROTIP: Calling him Jewranger really rustles his jimmies. "Faggot" doesn't work quite as well as it did when he was still en-closeted.

He was a Wikipedia sysop until he pissed off the wrong people and was taken to Wikipedo's e-court where he was desysopped. In his time as Sysop, Ryulong was brought to power in a rigged election George W would be proud of, and even then only with blessing of Raul654 because "I like him". Ryulong brought disgrace to the Wikipedia admin corps until his sysop bit was stripped in an embarrassing ArbCom case. TOW's most formidable line of defense against vandals and trolls, he was feared by all for using his admin powers like a pig in shit to unerringly dominate any article about Japanese faggots beating each other off in rubber suits. During his stint as a tiny "Wiki-GOD", he just sat at his computer, hitting refresh on Recent changes, waiting, watching for you to make an edit so he could revert it. Despite being a chemical oceanography/anthropology expert, he only edits articles about Pokemon, Power Rangers, Japanese Power Rangers, and Kamen Riders, which just screams autistic manchild.
One of Ryulong's blocking victims was so annoyed with Ryulong he able to get his account unblocked, much to Ryulong's chagrin.with hundreds of messages. Ryulong reported this and a bug led to his email address being made public, which prompted the troll to sign Ryulong up for mailing lists. In the end, Ryulong had to abandon at least two email addresses and Wikipedia implemented the ability to remove email access from accounts. Years later, the troll was
Ryulong had an account on ED, and he was very keen that assertions made about him on this page have appropriate references. Surprisingly, it took much longer for him to be banned here than at Transformers Wiki and the Transmasters Forums.
Ryulong's latest adventures on Wikipedia include taking ownership of Wikipedia's GamerGate article, to ensure that it is his preferred version, contrary to Wikipedia's policy prohibiting this. In addition, he likes to sperg about his "private Twitter account" (fully aware that it is actually his public Twitter account), but everyone knows the reason he doesn't want his Twitter linked on Wikipedia is because it exposes his bias, by . His bias was also exposed when he called GamerGate supporters "mindless zombies".
Jewranger freaks out if you upload and label an image incorrectly on Wikipedia, and forces people to upload images he wants on Wikipedia for his own use. He is also a humongous Naruto fan, loving Naruto almost as much as he loves Wikipedia, and frequently comes on the Naruto Wiki.
Ryulong's psychic abilities gave him the power to permanently block people from Wikipedia if he simply anticipates some "disruptive editing," even when the person was merely responding on a talk page in a completely "civil" manner.
When a vandal compromised an admin account, the first thing to do was ban Ryulong.
Before getting banned over GamerGate in January 2015, Ryulong was the 57th most prolific editor on Wikipedia and had made at least 218,132 edits. As of September 2016 he has fallen down to the 81st. According to Ryulong he was responsible for to the project before his ban.
That's just cold
A woman comes to Wikipedia for help:
I don't know where to exactly go my friend has 3 babies a soon to be x husband who is in jail now left her with no money and she has a job but her landlord told her she has until saturday to come up with $500 dollars to pay the rent or she is out on the street with 3 babies, I'm trying to find services to help her and I know I'm not on the right page but I can't seem to find the right one Please she needs help I've gave them food but I don't have that type of money.. Please help me to help my friend you can email me at [email protected] Thank You for reading this and if you could help point me in the right direction.... Thank You
Classic Ryulong: revert, ban, and block email! The victim gets no answer. Maybe her friend should've had an abortion instead of a ton of kids from a crack-dealing black person! The mother subsequently confirmed having to sell her body for money.
From Ryulong <[email protected]> To "Aywana Txxxxxxx" < [email protected]> Listen. I don't care if you are 13, or whatever. Stop vandalizing my page at the Japanese Wikipedia. It's your own fucking fault for impersonating me TWICE and I got my user name changed to the one that I should have had in the first place. Go edit Bulbapedia. I couldn't care less what you do over there. If you want, bring up your ban to the ArbCom at the English Wikipedia, but then all you can edit is your case. Just LEAVE ME ALONE YOU GOD DAMN CHILD.
Through this hateful diatribe, Jewranger tells us that he has an account on Japanese Wikipedia. And what an amusing history he has had there! Young Aywana impersonated him with "Ryuulong" and did some hilarious vandalism. Unlike the English Wikipedia, the Japanese Wikipedia editors eventually showed no tolerance for Ryulong's shitty transration 'skills' and politely told Ryulong to fuck off after he had tried to lecture them about Japanese dialects.
As a matter of fact, Ryulong has accounts on many different versions of Wikipedia, including Wikipedia in Volapuk, a language invented by some 19th century Polish dude, as well as "Pennsylvania Dutch," an old-fashioned dialect of German spoken only by religious extremists of the Pennsylvania countryside, who ride around in a horse & buggy, and don't even use electricity, let alone internets. How about Nauruan? Spoken only on a small shithole island in the South Pacific, this language served for some time as Australia's dumping ground for illegal boat people arriving on tourist beaches. Simple English? Yes. Also, some ridiculous Chinese coastal dialect that uses letters instead of Chinese characters.
The question remains: Why? Isn't he a Jewish 19 year old, goin' to college, livin' by the beach, counting his Jew gold, havin' the time of his life? Why spend hours mucking around in Wikipedias that are even more of a joke than the main one, a place where he spends pathologically too much time already? Taking a look at Ryulong's wiki contributions, the answer seems.
Ryulong says Frida Kahlo is his favorite artist, because "her presence can be humorous in the right situation." This is really fucktarded because all he knows about the self-obsessed emo attention whore Frida Kahlo was in the shitty movie about her.
He is the cancer that is killing /b/
Ryulong is widely known as the cancer that is killing /b/. While always controlling 4chan articles like a /b/tard, he shows contempt for everything /b/. He has always hated Habbo Raids, he won't let 4chan update their screenshot (it's still from 2010), and he won't even correct media portrayal of 4chan. If he was true to /b/, he would correct false things like the HACKERS ON STEROIDS Fox propaganda. The furries on Wikipedia have always ignored how the media portrays them and just went on to write what they considered the truth. But not Ryulong. He hates 4chan.
He hates /b/ memes, including Chocolate Rain. Example:
- 21:15, 8 August 2007 Ryulong (Talk | contribs) deleted "Talk:Chocolate rain" (per current deletion of Chocolate Rain)
- 21:15, 8 August 2007 Ryulong (Talk | contribs) deleted "Chocolate rain" (per current deletion of Chocolate Rain)
Currently Ryulong believes he created all memes himself, his favorites include Ceiling Cat, surprised nigger, and an unfunny version of "banana phone". He shows hatred towards certain memes such as Chocolate Rain, Slowpoke, Rick Roll, and others mainly because his friends peer-pressured him into thinking so. It is truly a wonder that other admins haven't permab& him yet.
Ryulong is no newb. He knows how to deal with criticism
Unlike some n00b bureaucratic fucks, Ryulong knows how to deal with criticism. Revert it in under a minute and ban the IP for life. Good thing he took care of it properly, or else he'd end up in the news.
Ryulong is a regular and also a lurker on websites such as http://rangerboard.com and http://henshinjustice.com. Here are his profiles for both Rangerboard and HenshinJustice. His best friends are YellowStranger and Ladymercury. He spends alot of time in the HenshinJustice irc @rizon.net. Please use this info wisely. FACT Raids on him and his friends make him cry and he will vanish from the internet LOL. Ryulong even created a second account on ED under the username User:FaggotryreignsED (deleted), giving into the trolls and deciding to cry about it. He also had a third ED account because his last one was exposed as a samefag. This third account is User:Tokuraws (also deleted). He just might be back, methinks. According to Ryulong, ED
—Ryulong, explaining his name on his old User page
Ryulong is totally enthusiastic about dragons. His Ryulong user name (a combination of the Japanese and Chinese words for 'dragon') was and required the help of a friend. Despite getting hit on by creeps who read the name as "Are you long?", Ryulong has kept the name as his primary online handle, resulting in him earning nicknames mocking him for his Engrish transrations such as "Double Dlagon" or "Dlagondlagon." Ryulong considers these nicknames to be even though he is not Japanese and would spend years edit warring to keep them spelled that way if they were the name on a tokusatsu toy.
He is the former owner of www.dracoisland.tk, which resolved to www.geocities.com/ryulong6787.
I took the Inner Dragon online quiz and found out I am a Copper Dragon on the inside. My Inner Dragon is the mighty warrior of dragon-kind. It's just that simple. Coppers show up when someone's about to die. Coppers don't mess around, and they don't play evil games like Red Dragons. They don't bother with magic, like Gold Dragons. They exist for a purpose, and they serve it well.
But what sort of a dragon would I be if that really was the whole story? I also like to stomp my enemies, start the occasional war, and spend lazy hours preening my battle aura. My favorable attributes are strength, physical abilities, thriftiness, warmth, and longevity in battle. Just in case some puny human (or conniving Red Dragon) thinks they can get the drop on me, I've got a concealed breath weapon - gigantic masses of Fire. Hey, it's the tried and true way to cook a cow in 0.75 seconds.
How to Troll
Nominate his pet articles for deletion
—Ryūlóng (User talk:Ryulong) 06:22, 29 January 2009 (UTC)
A great way of trolling is nominating his pet articles for deletion. Don't do this on an account with less than 50 edits as you don't want the trolling to be too obvious, but if the account has been around a while, just pretend to be some ordinary deletionist. Wait until the AFD for one has finished before doing the next so you can milk as much lulz as possible from it.
An now that his big ass is b& until the heat death of the universe, you can AFD his precious tokusatsu crap articles with impunity, knowing that ANY account that shows up and objects strenuously is probably a Jewranger sockpuppet. And thus easily reported to SPI, thereafter kickbanned with ease. So fly, my pretties, to Category:Tokusatsu, and start blasting things away!
Remind him about being open to recall
Note this comment made by him from his first RfA, and repeated requests for his status to be reviewed. (Now that he's shit-meat on TOW, you might keep it in mind for any other wiki the fat bastard shows up on.)
Optional question from Lar:
- 5. (one big long question about categories of admins and your thoughts about them) Are you aware of the notion of adminstrators saying they're willing to be voluntarily recalled or reviewed, by a less onerous process than a new RfA (or worse) arbComm action? What do you think of the idea? Would you consider placing yourself (placement should only be done by oneself) in such a category if you were made an admin? Why or why not? Are you aware of the notion of Rouge admins? What do you think of the notion? Do you see it as purely humorous or do you see what it's driving at? Would you consider allowing yourself to by placed in this category (placement is traditionally done by someone else) if you were made an admin? Why or why not? (note: both these categories have some controversy attached to them, for different reasons, and note also, although I am a policy and process wonk I am in both categories, and finally, note that there is no wrong answer here...) ++User:Lar: User_talk:Lar|t 18:31, 6 August 2006 (UTC)
- I was not aware about voluntary recall/review, but if such a situation were to occur if I were to become an admin, I would not object to such a review. It would give me constructive criticism as to my (currently hypothetical) status as an admin and my faults as an editor, just as the various opposition votes below are calling into question now. I have heard about Rouge admins to an extent, but I have not really looked into the situation (the most I know is that "Rouge" is purposefully used instead of "Rogue", and I can discern that it must mean that the admins have gone rogue/AWOL/amok in some form). I do see that the process of Rouge admins is calling into question the faults of the user, albeit in a humorous fashion. If another admin felt I was going "Rouge", then I would take it as it was intended, constructive (yet funny) criticism. Now, I have to see what "WP:WONK" is. User:Ryulong|Ryūlóng 23:16, 6 August 2006 (UTC)
They tried to throw it down the memory hole, but an American hero points out Ryulong's lack of integrity, remembering his lie about being open to recall, chides the prize turkey for being an asshole, and again reminds him of his broken promises.
Keep in mind, however, the ire of the Doubled Dragon has no limit, and he will revert you. Keep trying, noble soldiers! His university "career" can't last forever; he'll have to cut back on his OCD fixation with Power Rangers: Jungle Fury someday.
- In this AN pissfest, he said, "MascotGuy isn't a vandal. He's just an autistic boy with nothing better to do than try and improve our articles in ways that end up doing more harm than good." It sounds more like Ryulong is talking about himself.
- Ryulong deals with a faggot who forgot to sign their talk comments: "23:18, 8 January 2009 Ryulong (Talk | contribs) blocked 188.8.131.52 (Talk) (anon. only, account creation blocked) with an expiry time of 1 month (Disruptive editing: User continually refuses to sign comments on talk pages)"
- This time, now the user cannot edit their own talk page. Banning this guy was the only time he's made fair bans. "23:15, 9 January 2009 Ryulong (Talk | contribs) changed block settings for 184.108.40.206 (Talk) with an expiry time of 1 month (anon. only, account creation blocked, cannot edit own talk page) (Disruptive editing: User continually refuses to sign comments on talk pages)"
Using 26 sockpuppets at one time to cause the mass edit conflict glitch
One of Ryulong's greatest crowning achievements, when scanning through AN and ANI discussions it can be found where he will often purposely use 26 sockpuppets at one time to create a mass "edit conflict" error glitch. While this is ongoing a curious malfunction of wikipedia occurs. The key number is 26, as the site can handle 25.
The user running all the sockpuppets can then edit without their edits appearing in the logs, meaning they can make any edit and no one will know they did it. He uses this one often to change people's edits or to make edits for them. Always of course threatening others which gets them blocked. He is considered by many to be one of the most devious sockpuppeteers.
Banished from Glorious Nippon
According to his user page, Ryulong graduated from the University of Miami with a Bachelor of Science in chemical oceanography, with a minor in anthropology. From there, Ryulong managed to achieve the life goal of the weeaboo and was living in Japan from 2012-2014 while studying at in what would be a to get his Master of Science degree.
In September 2014, Ryulong had air mattress shorter than he was. In January 2015, Ryulong admitted he had "fucked up hard in Japan" and whatever he did had ruined his employment prospects. In a leaked GamerGhazi IRC log, Ryulong was distraught that he had and still didn't have his Master of Science degree.related to his student loans and was by the Japanese government. All he wanted to do was but supposedly the Japanese government wasn't letting him leave the country. Whatever the issue was, it was resolved in October 2014 and Ryulong was back with his parents in New York , sleeping on an
Ryulong and GamerGate
Forced to leave Japan and now out of school and unemployed, Ryulong soon became head white knight of Zoe Quinn alongside Ironholds and was defending the GamerGate Wikipedia article from the taint of objectivity. Before he was forced to fuck off, Ryulong was responsible for to the Gamergate controversy article, and had made 1,151 edits on the article's talk page. According to Ryulong, GamerGate was he had pissed off due to his wiki autism.
Things escalated to the point that Jimbo himself had to step in after Ryulong made up quotes and, when the guy he was pretending to be quoting asked him to stop, Ryulong accused him of threatening him.
Jimbo did his best to hint at his fellow weeb that maybe he should shut the fuck up and get the fuck out, at which point Ryulong went apeshit and started screaming that there is a conspiracy to smear his name, citing this article as the reason as to why he's such a shitty editor.
Ryulong resorts to these lies because he wants to draw attention away from his own bias thus ensuring that the current version of their GamerGate article is his preferred version. He does this by calling GamerGate supporters "mindless zombies", and " ". Ryulong will cry like a bitch if anyone links to his homophobic remark on Twitter:
—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 19:38, 9 October 2014 (UTC), clearly unbiased
When asked why he was so obsessed with editing the GamerGate page, Ryulong said it was because there was and he believed he would continue to receive tweets and other messages from GamerGate supporters even if he stopped editing the article. Eventually he was voluntold to "step away" from editing the article, but that wasn't the end because soon the real reason he was editing it became clear:
In 2016, the Skype Con Leak provided evidence that Ryulong had been taking editing requests directly from Zoe Quinn and likely other anti-GamerGate figures. The logs captured one such incident where one of the anti-Gamergate Skype chat members, Tesseract, said, after Zoe had complained about part of Wikipedia's 4chan article. A few hours later, Tesseract reported, and the edit history on the 4chan page shows that Ryulong did indeed edit the paragraph Zoe had been complaining about, as requested.
The infamous Reddit AMA
Ryu even went to Reddit, specifically the worst possible place (r/gamerghazi), to "explain himself". This drove Jimbo Wales himself, the Wiki Pussy Dicktator, to show up to tell ol' Jewranger to shut the fuck up, and reminded Ryulong that accepting money for editing Wikipedia is against Jimbo's rules (he prefers taking all the money for himself):
Banned HA HA HA HA
Eventually Arbcom decided that, regarding a user breaking Wikipedia's rules as often as a nigger breaks the law elsewhere, punishment is long overdue. Several users, including the famed NorthBySouthBaranof, were topic banned from editing GamerGate and gender-controversy related articles. Ignoring that they were previously bragging about breaking NPOV, Ryulong and North both cried about it, now realizing that there was a section of Wikipedia that they couldn't stick their greasy dicks into. The that it created a tidal wave that destroyed Japan. Ryulong cried even harder afterwards, leaving this butthurt message on his userpage:
Loganmac, a single-purpose-account that was also topic banned, took this time to give Ryudong an epic parting shot.
—Loganmac, insulting every fiber of Ryulong's being.
Of course, Ryulong was perfectly rational in response.
You're right, Ryulong, getting you topic banned is a victory for Wikipedia. If only you'd get banned from life, then everyone would win!
During Ryulong's final days before he was banned from even editing his own talk page,  a certain user hung around chatting there who was none other than Hipocrite, the guy who helped get ED's original article on Wikipedia deleted many years ago.
Ryulong was eligible to appeal his Wikipedia site block in January 2016, but as of September 2016 he has not yet attempted to appeal.
Block Evasion on Wikipedia
It should come as no surprise that Ryulong was unable to adhere to his Wikipedia block. Within months, Ryulong had convinced some of his online friends including Adam "Kitsunelaine" Morland and David Gerard to edit on his behalf. Most of this meatpuppetry has been focused on combating people who tried to correct some of the Engrish words Ryulong had enforced with an iron fist, such as "buddyloid."
Ryulong seems to have arranged and coordinated his proxies over Skype chats, such as these edits caught by a Wikipediocracy user who found that Ryulong and one of his proxies were editing the same article within two minutes of one another on two different wikis:
When these obvious proxy editors were reported to Wikipedia's Sockpuppet Investigations, yet another one of Ryulong's Wikipedia contacts, Salvidrim!,vouched for them and closed it with no action. After months of Ryulong doing this, Salvidrim! was starting to feel guilty and admitted on reddit that yes, Ryulong had been , that he felt bad for helping Ryulong and that he would do so no longer, and he said that Ryulong had an of Wikipedians "on call." As recent as July 2016, Ryulong is still using his connections to smite his wiki enemies, in this case emailing multiple administrators to have someone blocked for making a Power Rangers Ninja Steel article before it had been officially announced.
It is also highly likely that Ryulong has been editing Wikipedia himself using IP addresses (several which geolocate to his area have been active on the obscure, low-traffic pages he obsessed over), but his CheckUser data is "stale" and they have, so far, refused to investigate SPI requests against Ryulong.
After being banned from Wikipedia, Ryulong found other means to continue his anti-GamerGate holy-war across the internet. At the David Gerard, Ryulong joined SJW haven RationalWiki and quickly became their top contributor in their fight against GamerGate, making over 9000s of edits to and a few related articles, and nearly zero to others. Ryulong would become one of the most quarrelsome editors on the wiki, and he fought like a demon-possessed faggot with another editor called . For months. The turd was supported by David Gerard, who repeatedly and took his side whenever other editors brought Ryulong to the "Chicken Coop" noticeboard.of
Throughout 2015, Ryulong continued to push his agenda against GamerGate and its supporters on RationalWiki. Since trouble there too. RW's sysops love to block each other, and these idiots are no different. ' Even Hipocrite is a sysop there, and does the same fucking stupid things.', he missed only a few random days of contributing to the site, which typically consisted of submitting multiple edits to the same article. This behavior wound up causing . Unsurprisingly, he ignored them. He has a bizarre habit of winding up in
With Ryulong's streak of obsessing over wikis, it was only a matter of time until he pissed everyone off and he got kicked from here too.
Ryulong and My Little Pony
Hilariously, Ryulong's burning hatred for My Little Pony would help lead to his self-imposed exile from RationalWiki. After spending most of 2015 annoying every other user on the wiki and being repeatedly desysopped, Ryulong was , then decided to burn the last of the good will some people had for him when he decided that the MLP article was Ryulong had expressed his on his Twitter and accounts, a contempt formed by the brony fandom's , the amount of Rule 34 of the series, the 'ableism' of the fandom's Derpy Hooves obsession, and the fact that bronies were "appropriating" Ryulong's by 'coming out of the stable.' Ryulong, along with Adam "Kitsunelaine" Morland (one of his buddyloids who was also helping him evade his Wikipedia block) began to attack the My Little Pony article in an attempt to express their butthurt about the MLP fandom and label bronies as .
For three days, Ryulong raged and edit warred to try and keep his version of the MLP article. The drama erupted on the article, the article talk page, several users' talk pages, and was repeatedly discussed at the. Ryulong when Paravant, a moderator, locked the MLP article and Ryulong couldn't edit it. In typical Ryulong fashion, Ryulong wanted to if he couldn't get his way. Ryulong was eventually desysopped and blocked for an hour for his actions regarding the MLP article. The article did end up at , but was kept despite the efforts of Ryulong.
On October 26th, 2015 Ryulong planned to quit RationalWiki and give up his plans to appeal his Wikipedia block because didn't want the Kiwi Farms to One must wonder how Ryulong is if he thought he would be able to leave the wiki cold turkey and that he wasn't a lolcow already.
Despite the threat of quitting, Ryulong was still there the next day when the MLP article's protection expired. Ryulongit which caused many eyes to roll and Ryulong was accused of being on an "anti-MLP jihad." Another user declared the drama about MLP to be With the majority of the user base annoyed and at the end of their patience with him, Ryulong began trying to avoid anything dealing with MLP. On October 30th, Ryulong removed a message from his talk page, for doing so, then to try and wipe his talk page. This ended with Ryulong being desysopped (again) and blocked for three hours.
I am really struggling to comprehend why you make your life here so difficult Ryu. Your unwillingness to abide why what are a pretty relaxed set of RW guidlines and standards is apparent right from the early entries on your user talk page. I say unwillingness as it can't be inability as you are clearly not stupid. I don't get it. --TheroadtoWiganPier (talk) 06:51, 30 October 2015 (UTC)
- Because habits are hard to break from Wikipedia and I really fucking hate Bronies.—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 07:13, 30 October 2015 (UTC)
November 4th, 2015 proved to be a bad day for Ryulong. A troll had made an account named Richard Dawkins. On Wikipedia, someone had changed the Engrish "buddyloid" to "buddyroid" and one of Ryulong's administrator contacts had decided he was anymore. In response to these events, Ryulong began , desysopped himself, and said he was Ryulong then tried to get someone else desysopped for not being "sane" enough.and used it to poke at Ryulong, and Ryulong got in , this time over a lame 'parody' image he had uploaded of
Needless to say, Ryulong didn't even last a day on this latest flounce. When, Ryulong said he "saw someone being a complete idiot" and "couldn't stop [himself] from coming back and telling them off." Ryulong began racking up more edits on the GamerGate pages and on November 11th he started another edit war, this time over some GamerGate image. After fighting for hours, Ryulong was desysopped yet again and , which restricted him to making one edit every half an hour. This spat ended with Ryulong still being butthurt about the My Little Pony incidents, and Ryulong .
A few days later, Ryulong caused more drama after he and David Gerard Sarah Nyberg. After sysops began looking through the revisions deleted by Ryulong and started undoing the frivolous ones, and ended up in the Chicken Coop for the umpteenth time. In response to the evidence presented against him, Ryulong himself, again, and the moderators placed him on sysoprevoke status to make sure Ryulong's pals like Hipocrite couldn't resysop him.
On December 1st, 2015, over a month after the initial My Little Pony drama, Ryulong and Adam Morland were evidently on Skype together and decided they should take another whack at turning the article into a hitpiece. This appears to have been a setup for moderator Paravant, as Adam brought him to the Chicken Coop and accused him of "targeted abusal of moderation tools" after Paravant had stepped in to stop Ryulong and Adam from edit warring on MLP, again.
Ryulong scored a minor victory in that Paravant was sick of dealing with all the drama and decided he needed to take a break from RationalWiki, however Ryulong's tantrums over My Little Pony had not only cemented himself as a persona non grata to the rest of the wiki, the weeks of constant fighting had also destroyed Ryulong's desire to continue editing at RationalWiki and he would soon abandon the site.
Flouncing into the Vandal Bin
On December 7th, 2015, Ryulong had a Pearl Harbor of his own after he had been caught insulting an IP editor and edit warring. Ryulong was brought to the Chicken Coop yet again and a incredibly naive sysop unblocked him because .. Ryulong was even found edit warring during the discussion, which won him no favors, and he eventually . On the 8th, Ryulong to make sure he couldn't return, but his friend pussied out and only blocked him for 3.5 days. In the meantime, the Chicken Coop had made the decision to permanently put Ryulong in the Vandal Bin. Ryulong would return on December 9th to make his , and, after being mocked, came back to make his A sysop blocked Ryulong for three months to enforce his flounce, but an
With Ryulong flounced, some RationalWiki users reached out to GamerGaters and asked them to come fact check RationalWiki's GamerGate pages. This of course caused Ryulong to come back, in spite of being restricted to one edit every thirty minutes by the Vandal Bin, and he would continue arguing with GamerGaters from December 14th to the 28th, when David Gerard was sperging out again in defense of the pedophile Nicholas "Sarah" Nyberg and started banning users and protecting the GamerGate pages. While Ryulong made hiswith the Ryulong account on the 28th, at least one of his continued stirring up shit on the wiki for a few more months so it's certainly plausible Ryulong was still involved in some capacity. However, even the meatpuppet eventually stopped, so it is possible Ryulong really did manage to move on.
Of course a wiki addict like Ryulong would also be active on the fandom-based wikias, and indeed he does have thousands of edits and years of history (and bans) on various wikia. In another amusing spectacle, during his RationalWiki flounces Ryulong had been wandering around wikias looking for some place to edit and sate his autismal hunger for wikis. The Digimon wikia permab& Ryulong for edit warring, although they did unblock him to give him a second chance, which Ryulong ignored. He eventually arrived at the Bleach wikia, where he had previously caused trouble resulting in him being blocked for a year back in 2013. The Bleach sysops fucked up by not indefinitely blocking him back then, as Ryulong started an edit war over "Pufairu" when he returned in 2015. The sysops were going to have their Japanese translator check the "Pufairu" name, but Ryulong couldn't wait and kept pestering the sysops to change it.
As with every single other wiki, the users quickly grew annoyed as Ryulong did what Ryulong does, including edit warring with one of the staff members. Eventually a user called MythdonsRevenge (named for a Wikipedia user that Ryulong quarreled with) showed up on the wikia and warned the staff that Ryulong was trouble. Ryulong and began begging one of the sysops to ban MythdonsRevenge. In the end, Ryulong was banned for two years for repeatedly violating their policies. When a troll left him a New Year's greeting mentioning Princess Celestia, Ryulong tried to send in proxy editors to remove it, but the Bleach sysops held their ground and protected the page with the message intact.
One of Ryulong's most-frequented wikias is the one for JoJo's Bizarre Adventures, where he has over 2,200 edits. In 2016, Ryulong nearly got himself banned from this wikia as well when he started edit warring over a picture of Vivian James with an account named Buddyroid. Every aspect of the Buddyroid account seems to have been carefully selected to trigger Ryulong by referencing the shitty Engrish Ryulong has fought over for years, GamerGate, and My Little Pony. It worked too as Ryulong has repeatedly worked himself into a lather over Buddyroid. The sysops and users of the JoJo's wikia swiftly grew tired of Ryulong's hysterics over Buddyroid and have so far refused to ban Buddyroid (or MythdonsRevenge, who returned) or delete the Vivian James image from Buddyroid's user page, despite Ryulong begging them to do so.
Ryulong's behavior on the JoJo's wikia was found to be so hilarious and bizarre that he was featured on a podcast by Lord KaT.
