⚠️ 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

    Seriously, who names their kid Darl?

    A subsidiary of the Canopy Group and suspected sock puppet of Microsoft, the Santa Cruz Operation (SCO) is chemotherapy for the cancer that is the GPL. SCO is the legal owner of the patents infringed upon by the Lunix operating system, regardless of what basement-dwelling e-lawyer Slashdot fanboys may say. To legally use Lunix, you must pay a $699 license fee to SCO. (A lawsuit is pending against Richard Stallman for falsely advertising claiming that Lunix is "free software.")

    Members of SCO include Esker Melchior.

    Note that their messiah, Darl McBride, is a moron.

    Based in Lindon, Utah, SCO has a worldwide presence with representation in 82 countries. This infrastructure enables SCO to sue anyone who uses Lunix without a license, thereby confronting the forces of software piracy in our midst. SCO has a channel of more than 11,000 talking heads, a soon-to-be unemployed development network of 8,000, one mexican janitor, and thousands of direct account customers who are soon to be the object of litigation. They also have an install base of more than two million obsolete systems.

    Currently, SCO is in the process of getting its face smashed by IBM (and practically anybody else with a computer and a halfway decent lawyer), while selling GPLed software on OpenServer 6 -- despite claims that the GPL is unconstitutional and the fact that they now owe Novell more in licensing fees than OpenServer will ever recoup. In its own cute way, SCO is only doing it for the lulz.

    SCO is now basically a lawsuit-machine. However, its lawsuits are about as valid as most internets defamation torts, and so it has become the shared lol-cow of IBM and the US court system. Once Microsoft stops supporting it, the litigation will finally end and all the lawyers will have to get real jobs.
