⚠️ 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.

Æ Roadmap

  • 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! - aediot

    Atomic.gif Warning!
    Spyware is a POTENT HERBICIDE and should be used with strict moderation under adult supervision ONLY!
    See the guy lurking in the corner? He's stealing your computer.

    Spyware is the crap that comes bundled with software (or installs when you visit certain websites without knowing what the fuck) that website operators use to collect data about you that they then somehow turn in to money. Often spyware is buggy, uses a lot of RAM, redirects your home page to pr0n, and gives AIDS to your children. Basically, spyware makes your thousand dollar games machine into a useless shitbox. Often the best solution is to turn over your computer to the local 13 year old boy along with $70 (pay him less and he'll get more from spyware companies to install more of the shit) or whatever the asking price is for him to install and run one of the free tools listed below.

    There's another type of annoying crap called "Ad-ware". Adware is known for pissing off people with completely useless pop ups, announcing crap that only fucktards and retards are interested in, like PartyPoker or Adultfriendfinder. It is rumored that the person who invented adware and spyware is an Otaku Cuckold who lives with his mom and jacks his dick off to furporn.

    Spyware will scare the fuck out of you

    Internet Explorer: The Spyware and Adware Sites Paradise

    Internet Explorer, the Microsoft internet navigation software, invented by Bill Gates, is the single best program to use on your computer, if your goal is to fuck it up entirely. It is equipped with thousands of ads, and it will let trillions more enter your computer. Actually, IE makes it easier to screw up your computer; the more up-to-date your IE is, the more screwed up your computer will be. Bill Gates made a dumbass of himself introducing Windows to the public, because it has IE installed, which is why your computer freezes one trillion times per second, and why the so called Blue screen of death appears. Oh yeah, one more thing, when you type passwords and personal information on IE, it will send it to many many other people and big corporations, so in fact, IE is spyware with a very expensive disguise.

    It slices, it dices, it even makes Julienne fries! Oh, did I mention that it also saves all your passwords and sends them to big corporations?

    Removing spyware (for windows users)

    Click on Start, Run, and type cmd then press enter. If that doesn't create a big black window with grey text in it, type command then press enter. When the big black window comes up, click on it and type:

    format c: /u

    Believe me, this is this only way to completely remove all spyware.

    For users that are not familiar with the command line interface, the free spyware removal tool Windows Optimizer is also available.

    If for any weird reason that solution doesn't work, open your computer case and throw away that thing that says "HD" or "Hard Drive". Or donate it for some good trolling.

    Removing Spyware (for Mac users)

    Its too late, Steve Jobs already owns your soul you hipster faggot.
