⚠️ 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!
smartypantsnyc: I really don't give flying fuck what Jameth thinks
blahthequah: i dont think he gives a flying fuck what you think
smartypantsnyc: it's just interesting how whenever I question your infinite wisdom suddenly jameth shows up if I were paranoid I might think there's something to that
blahthequah: thats because jameth is everywhere
smartypantsnyc: isn't that enough?
blahthequah: so Jameth replied to one comment and you flip out?
smartypantsnyc: yeah that's what it is
blahthequah: get over it
smartypantsnyc: it couldn't be the fact that he never responds to me ever except on your posts and controversial ones at that
blahthequah: well he is an IRL friend
smartypantsnyc: or the fact that you brag all about how he's like your RL good buddy.
blahthequah: Because he is really a friend
smartypantsnyc: so since I've never met you IRL its okay for your internet buddy to harass me online? that's really cool
blahthequah: Im not harassing you all he said was "lol"
smartypantsnyc: how friendly of him!
blahthequah: so let me get this straight so you're being a hypocrite that's what so
blahthequah: you are upset because jameth lolled at you
smartypantsnyc: I don't give a shit about that
blahthequah: what the fuck is this about but I expect better of you blahthequah: i cant control what jameth does. i didnt tell him to comment
smartypantsnyc: and if he's SUCH a good friend of yours he should know that he should know what
blahthequah: im so confused what he did wrong
smartypantsnyc: whatever it is you think of me
blahthequah: acting on his own, he saw your comment and lolled
smartypantsnyc: I think he does actually
blahthequah: know what? that doesnt make any sense.
smartypantsnyc: you should defend him because he was harassing me
blahthequah: what. What is ridiculous. I cant control someone on the internets who doesnt even live in the same city anymore
smartypantsnyc: the fact that he needs to say "lol" to like five of my comments without provocation is something in itself since I have never had any interaction with him AT ALL
blahthequah: no you responded to his comment that was your fault
smartypantsnyc: HE RESPONDED FIRST FUCK YOU are you so retarded? that you can't figure out instigator from instigated? FAULT? you have problems
blahthequah: this is stupid. all he did was lol to your comment. thats all he did. he has responded only one other time to one of your comments. that all he is has ever done. that is not harassment. he didnt threaten you, or stalk you or call you a name. no, all he did was lol at your comment. if you cant handle an lol you shouldn’t be online
smartypantsnyc: you know what? you're a really fucking shitty person and I'm over it
Have you ever known someone totally fabulous? Like, the kind of person who would have fit right in at the old Studio 54 nightclub, and been invited to have drinks with Bianca Jagger there? (Or Amanda LePore in this day and age.) No? Few have. Now imagine if this person not only had a LiveJournal, but also furiously moderated a community for gay teens. And this person was, by their own admission, in their early thirties.
Yeah, meet smartypantsnyc. The alleged "unmoderator" of the new_gay_boys community (a cheap and pale imitator of the original den of inquity and shallowness that was gay_boys) has a creepy habit of hitting on the teens who post there. Most of them are pretty good about it. But every now and then he goes a little power-mad and starts deleting posts and banning members. This is odd behavior for a community that brags "No posts will be deleted by the moderators. Not even posts made by trolls. If you can't laugh at the trolls, then you are lame and we don't want you in our community anyways" right on its user info page.
One would be tempted to comment on the insecurity of a moderator who claims to be hands-off but deletes posts that annoy him. Then again, one would also wonder about the alleged fabulousness of a man who cannot stop obsessing over LiveJournal in spite of his OMG FABULOUS lifestyle of clubbing it up in Manhattan. One would be tempted to conclude that he is actually an unemployed shoe salesman in Hoboken with a thing for twinks and bad taste in music. But any post speculating such would be deleted immediately from the community moderated by our fabulous smartypants.
