⚠️ 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!
As the sobriquet would imply, a scenester is a type of scenewhore who is wholly immersed in the scene of a particular subculture or clique. They go to all of that scene's clubs, bars and hang-outs, dress exclusively in its "uniform" and listen only to its music. Most scenesters tend not to associate or be friends with those outside their chosen scene, and some will even take up jobs that are scene-centric (barista at a scene's favorite coffee house, for example, or sales person at a scene-dominated record store).
While most people associate scenesters with the emo, goth and hippie sets, in truth almost all subcultures possess their version of scenesters. Certain jocks, for instance, will only frequent sports bars and only dress in athletic or athletic-esque attire; some will even get jobs as little league coaches, gym teachers, or pedophiles.
For many travel writers, the worst thing that could ever happen is a place turns into a filthy tourist trap. "OH NO, ALL THE FREAKING CULTURE IS GONE, THIS PLACE IS JUST SOULLESS MAN" These travel writers now have to pay $7 for a fucking hamburger, which is the end of the world.
Solutions: First, the writer will try to claim the spot as theirs. For example, "Oh you stupid dumbshit tourists, I visited that little Greek Island and got five different kinds of sexually transmitted diseases from eating deep fried pigeon like 100 years ago and now there's all these losers there! I was there before it was cool!"
Once said writer realizes that nobody gives a fuck where they've been, they shall find a new place to frequent. The search for new breeding grounds is a perpetual quest for Travel Writers, and each time it drives them to a new low. Travel Writers will search for a small island or province in China inhabited by two hunchbacked lesbian Chinese farmers. They will spend five minutes there, enough time to eat boiled ox penis, then leave. Next week, they will say that the place is an "undiscovered haven"; a "hidden treasure" and the likes. And the cycle continues.
A hack_scenewhore is a sad individual (usually female in body or spirit) who, for some reason not dissimilar to cretinism, chooses to believe the media's chattery hype about those devilish hackers and their hacky ways. Arming themselves with their step-dad's broken Dell laptop and an ISDN modem, they instantly fancy themselves as having joined their exalted ranks, having become premier denizens of a little-publicized, endlessly-intriguing "underground world". Masturbating compulsively from the sheer exhilaration of their cyber-apotheosis leaves them little time or energy to actually learn anything about computers, or even talk to anyone who does know something about them. In time, such delusions inevitably give either sex a good, hard shove down the well-lubricated road to raging faggotry.
Male scenewhores do exist, of course, though they are harder to spot than their empussyed counterparts. Generally, these small, yummy boys lurk in publicly-accessible IRC channels, boasting slowly (they can only type with one hand, the other being wedged permanently in their rectums) of their "k-rad machines" and "l33t warez." These lamers sometimes osmosis up just enough buzzword terminology to camouflage themselves indefinitely, proudly serving as the loudest critics of "nubs" and "lamers" so as deflect attention away from their own woeful ignorance, thus preserving their fragile egos and e-dentities.
The Hack_Scene Scenewhore Test
- Do you personally own more than one computer?
- Do you personally own more than two technical computer books?
- Do you know what an operating system is?
- Have you operated on more than one operating system, not including Windows 95?
- Do you have Root?
- Can you name at least four different operating systems?
- Do you know any software language other than html & visual basic 5?
- Have you been to any computer conventions / seminars and attended every track?
- Do you know the four major components of the UNIX operating system?
- Do you know the command in *nix o/s to display a listing of all filenames including hidden files?
If you answered "no" to two or more of these questions, then you fall into the "I don't know a goddamn thing about computers; I'm still using AOL...and what the hell is *nix anyway?" category. Obviously, you're not a hack_scenewhore.
