⚠️ 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!
Spellcheck is one of many gifts from God given to the illiterate masses. The Spellcheck can make one look like an aristocratic fuck, while in reality the individual in question (i.e., YOU) is just another 13 year old boy– you know, the kind they sell on the streets in Russia.
If one fails to use a spellchecking program on teh intarwebz, the grammar nazis will remorselessly tear your pitiful post to shreds. This can result in you being banished from the internets due to the lulz created, and, in severe cases, self hurt.
How Spellcheck Works
Okay, so let's say you're writing an article about James A. Garfield, our fantastic, friendly fat fuck of a president from at least 100 presidents ago. You might, for whatever reason, want to use the adjective "Garfieldian." (Remember! An adjective is a word that describes another word!)
Since word processing programmers are generally too busy enjoying the finer things in life, the dictionary they include with their program is typically a cuntpaste job from some lesser source of words.
Needless to say, they have no idea what the fuck "Garfieldian" means, except being a fat orange tabby with a lasagna fetish.
So, you finally finish your 30-page dissertation on our finest president ever and you're ready to check it for errors. Oops! Looks like Word 97 doesn't know what "Garfieldian" means. It will sometimes give you a list of other words to choose from, such as "Garden" or "Golf." But not this time. There is absolutely nothing under the Word 97 sun that rhymes with "Garfieldian." So you click ignore and the spellcheck moves on to other creative word combos you've managed to create.
But after that's over, that red squiggly "oops you fucked up!" line appears under "Garfieldian" again. Guess it's not being ignored anymore. So you right click on it, and it tells you again that there are no words it could possibly be. So you say to yourself, to hell with that!, and just delete the word. But then a green squiggly line appears, which means you can't write in some ancient form of Engrish that Word 97 found to be most appropriate for modern-day AOL users.
And now you're just frustrated. It's four in the morning, your mom is eating all your cookies, and you've just been kicked from bantown for being a prick. It's time to call it a day. So you print out your shit, shove it in your trendy Hot Topic messenger bag and go to sleep.
Of course, you wake up at three in the afternoon the next day and you missed your lecture. Your humorless professor will never take a late paper because his LiveJournal was trolled by people like you and now he has an axe to grind. Now you get to drop out of school and become a sexless, pasty-faced basement dweller because you stayed up too late fucking around with spellcheck and made-up words like "Garfieldian." I hope you're fucking happy.
