⚠️ 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!
Sythe.org, a recently self-proclaimed "craigslist of virtual goods", was founded by Sythe (Richard Holland) back in the early 2000s with no funding nor coherent purpose whatsoever. Richard was a loner, one whom often found himself deep in a lonely corner with the dim light of a computer screen reflecting off his face. Richard came up with the idea of Sythe.org while reading his 40th non-fiction book on economics. Being a big fan of socialism, he thought it would be great to have a community whose collaboration would fill his pockets with well-deserved money. Richard had much experience on Runescape, so he decided to center his activities around making cheats for the game. He made a shitty auto-mining program and sold it for $5.00, successfully hitting off his scamming project. After about two more failed attempting at programming, Richard gave up and turned his focus to black market trading for Runescape.
The Photographic Incidents of 2006 and 2010
Richard was quickly on his way to internet fame, all seemed well for the Australian native. As Richard was browsing his newly developed forum he came across a thread that would forever change his life, somehow, somewhere, a normal bystander achieved a photograph of Richard. The photograph depicted a ghastly figure, one no human should ever bear witness too. The photograph was pulled immediately but by then it was to late. From that point on the photo was used to mock the owner, spoofs and scandals occurred left and right and before the day ended the poor and lonely owner was ridiculed into oblivion. The once powerful internet sensation was now nothing more than a laughing stock, his picture stalked him everywhere he turn. Richard took his law abiding power to the forum and began fighting off the "e-thugs" left and right, though this seemed contradictory to the whole sites purpose. From that day Richard sought a new purpose, a rising prospect, Runescape.
Richard posted another photograph in the summer of 2010. The effects of torment over the previous picture were obvious. His skin was pale after not seeing sunlight in 3 years. His hair was dirty and nasty due to his geneology. Oh, yes, Richard tried to wash his hair, but several generations of inbreeding has made it impossible. The most evident change is that of his chin. Richard's chin somehow managed to grow to stick out further than his forhead, while at the same time taking the shape of a butt.
Attacks on Sythe's Life
During the months of August and September of 2010, a secret organization, known only as "Ghosts", began planning personal attacks on Sythe.org and Sythe himself. Ghosts brought down Sythe.org for a period of 20 days in 2007 using their time traveling device. Sythe's family members were pushed into oncoming traffic, you cunt. This explains why Sythe seems like such a lonely bastard. Because he is. Sythe was warned by his spy, living undercover in the Ghosts organization. Almost immediately, Sythe began throwing a shitfuckingstorm, banning anyone from his website without cause. In the end they all suffered the same fate; death by banishment and even deletion. Some of these ghosts were once Richards best men, but Finn, another administrator, advised against his feelings and before long the death toll was rising.
The Sythe Rage Thread
Sythe usually did absolutely nothing to manage his site except sit back, take donations, and assign loads of 12-year-olds to moderate and scam each other. People usually kissed his ass when he would post, which pleased him much. Then one day, some criminals from Ghosts started to troll Richard on his forum. He got mad and made a thread on his spam board entitled "Perm Ban" encouraging to "post if you're stupid." Following this instruction, many people started to post and were systematically and permanently banned (included half of his staff and loyal members of nearly 5 years). This lead to eCrying and a couple suicides. Richard was thereafter the prey of all trolls on his site.
Origin of the Name "Sythe"
It all started one day when Richard was in the bathroom doing his business. Upon completion, he noticed that his clock was askew on the wall. He stood on his toilet to fix the clock and, while adjusting the clock, slipped and hit his head on the sink. Aside from becoming hilariously disabled, he had a miraculous vision where he saw African American slaves harvesting fields with scythes. He figured that, since he was a nigger tool, this would be an accurate title for himself. Because of an honest mistake, Richard misspelled and registered the domain sythe.org and decided to just go with it. He didn't realize his server would need to be powered with 1.21 jiggawatts, so consequently his site suffered 60% downtime due to "DDoS attacks."
Sythe is a Supreme Creature
Sythe commits no errors. He is entitled to his opinions. And you are entitled to agree with him.
[Sythe] god deacon, you possess a rational faculty [Sythe] attempt, for once, to apply it [Sythe] before making rash broad brush generalizations
