⚠️ 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

    Steven Slater is was a gay flight attendant for JetBlue that made national headlines when he unleashed his gay fury on the passengers of Flight 1052 for incendiary remarks and slurs. After his plane landed, Slater claimed he was trying to restore order when an argument had flared up over some baggage in the overhead compartment. Then, some dumb bitch got in a scuffle that resulted in said baggage falling on Slater's head, injuring him.

    Or so he claimed...

    Ensuing Hilarity

    It was obvious from the get-go that somebody was lying: It was either the dumbfuck valley-girl passengers or the crazy faggot that handled all the alcohol on the aircraft.

    Slater's Account

    After the incident described above, Slater said he got on the plane's PA system and gave a righteous speech, laced with righteous profanities, concluding with: "I've been in this business 20 years. And that's it, I'm done."

    Following the tantrum, Slater pushed the big red button to deploy the plane's evacuation slide, used it to escape from the plane to the runway, and ran off. It took 25 minutes for the police to even be contacted because police radios don't work in JetBlue terminals.

    The rest of the world said:

       
     
    Slater told the passengers to "go fuck yourselves", grabbed two Blue Moon beers, and deployed the escape chute, slid down and then drove home from his car that was parked at the airport.
     

     
     

    —Witnesses

    Yep. Basically, nobody corroborated Slater's story. The passengers claimed Slater's actions were for the most part unprovoked, when in reality they were all too butthurt by the prospect of their own mortality to appreciate the lulziness of the situation. Investigators later decided that Steven Slater suffered from alcoholism and other mental-health issues, and was in fact drunk during the time of the altercation; but for what reason, we'll likely never know.

    The proper technique for exiting a plane.

    In Theory

    1. Your job is to keep order on a highly sophisticated and expensive piece of machinery.
    2. Become clinically depressed.
    3. Get drunk.
    4.  ????
    5. Be hailed as the working man's hero.

    In Practice

    For the brief period that Slater was in the national spotlight, he was in fact hailed as a martyr by the American working class - despite his story being a complete fabrication from the mind of a drunken asshole. He was even offered a TV show.

    However, the true nature of what happened became clear, right after everybody celebrated what he did - and he was swiftly kicked in the balls. Slater was arrested (he actually made it home before the police caught him) and charged with criminal mischief, reckless endangerment, criminal trespass, and silly shenanigans, and was forced to pay JetBlue $10,000 in reparations.


    TL;DR Explanation

    Legend

    To his credit, Slater's status as a folk hero has been unmatched in recent history.
