⚠️ 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!
Shaun Dykes (moar like Shawn Jew, lol amirite!?) was a seventeen year old from Derbyshire, UK. On September 28, 2008, he climbed to a high place with the full intention of either cooking up some pavement pizza or perpetrating the kind of scenario involving distraught crowds shouting "DON'T JUMP!" along with wobbly-legged firemen running to and fro with a tiny trampoline and women with huge breasts fainting dramatically.
Sad to say, the three hours that followed played out like some sort of black pantomime (the kind which actually looked satirical when Chris Morris was sending it up ten years ago) as "Baying onlookers" hurled witty epithets and cheeky British humor at him in an attempt to cheer him up.
—Superintendant Andy Hough
It is unknown why Shaun felt the need to punch his ticket. However, the fact that his MySpace page is covered in pictures of him and his boyfriend looking ecstatically happy and hugging - along with the mood "Smitten" being the last ever set - could provide some clue.
For the next three hours, police negotiators attempted to talk Shaun down, while the crowd shouted "DO A
FLIP BARREL ROLL!", "DO IT FAGGOT" and "HOW FAR CAN YOU BOUNCE?" Unfortunately for him, he did not bounce very well.
—Stephen Glover, The Daily Fail
His parents Harry Dyke and Leslie Dyke were reportedly "Too upset to comment," but bonus lulz were scored by Conservative Party Chairman David Cameron who then "Departed from his script" to the party conference in Birmingham and joked "I won't go on - there are people on balconies up there!" Angela Samata, Survivors of Bereavement From Suicide, commented "For some people it's a well-used turn of phrase, but for someone who could be the next Prime Minister you would expect a certain level of sensitivity."
—Lindsey, Shaun's best friend
