⚠️ 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!
SALJ was the LiveJournal fan community for the Toronto-based Christian deathcore band Stairs Aren't Lost. It had many members who were favourite targets of LJ Abuse and eventually the entire community was banned. It was previously centered around discussion of upcoming shows and albums, up until the announcement of Mosh's cystic fibrosis, effectively ending the band and causing much distress in fans, to the point that several of them cut themselves (see self injury.)
It is unknown exactly what happened but there were many Internet celebrity casualties, most of whom have returned either under new usernames or by finding loopholes in the Terms of Service, thus allowing them to keep their original usernames. Many others were not suspended due to having a previously clean slate as far as LJ Abuse was concerned.
The majority of saljers spend most of their time telling each other how funny they are on the LiveJournal. Saljers become very offended when told they are not funny, or at the very least, not much funnier than anyone else on the internet.
The strongest feature of saljers is the ability to act as a group. Their other super power is longevity through prolonged immaturity.
While they are a rarity, several saljers exist who have risen above the mediocrity and are an asset to LiveJournal, demonstrating true talent and genius.
- LJDrama and Salj had a mutual drama connection for a short period of time, usually involving Saljers trolling with their endless Sock journals. This collaboration ended once Salj drama became an old meme and it was clear that the majority of Saljers were one-trick ponies.
- There have been bitter feelings between the two groups ever since. Members of the ljdrama clique feel as if they have jumped the shark since the golden days of Salj. In the brief periods the site has managed to stay online since then, the quality of drama has been lackluster. In turn, Saljers are butt-hurt over the realization that they have nothing new to offer LiveJournal outside of Asperger's Syndrome.
- The hermetic kabbalists of #salj predicted 2005 as being the year of SALJ's revitalization. The first of the omens proving this to be indisputably true came at the beginning of the year when it was announced that Movable Type creator Six Apart was buying out Livejournal (see: Livejournal Buyout). Six Apart + LJ = SALJ, showing that SALJ's inevitable triumph over the Internets is near.
