How do we avoid fragmentation of the effort to revive/provide a worthy successor to ED? There are other projects and forums doing the same thing as us, such as this one. 08:33, 16 April 2011 (UTC)

Do we keep the name ED? I just wonder the logic of letting the name given by those sell-outs live on. Shouldn't it be a new title? Or am i just being retarded?Dr. Caligari 10:11, 16 April 2011 (UTC)

I think the best thing we can do is promote this one quite a bit, and emphasize that we're getting most of our articles in the proper HTML formatting, along with the amount of articles we already have. We have over 6,000, whereas lurkmoar has around 400 and wikichan is under 100. And yes, I say we keep the name ED. Exploding Knees 14:21, 16 April 2011 (EDT)

Ok. Either way works in my opinion, just a thought. I suppose it's a just revenge to continue using the name and make the wiki better.Dr. Caligari 10:52, 16 April 2011 (UTC)

Have any mods/admins from old ED fled here? What about to the other projects? Anyone know user counts? D4ng3r0u5 16:52, 16 April 2011 (UTC)

I know one or two ED mods went to lurkmoarpedia; whether they'll jump ship once they realize that site's losing the race remains to be seen. I don't know for sure of any ED mods on here, but there may be some. I wish I had some user counts; it'd be good to see what our loyalty base is like.

  • I'm an actual ED sysop. From encyclopedia dramatica. Beaurocrats here should be able to confirm this through my conf email, and then packet the IP. If any ED sysops are here then then ED quit them before they quit ED as far as I know. So they're not part of the dramacracy. I'm not some official conduit but given the confusion and the mix of a thousand butthurts as well as the opportunistic "down with ED" types who all got involved in this (not here specifically but in the whole debacle) I thought I'd sign up. Its not ask a sysop anything time, but you can spam my talk page if one of the beauros here confirms that I'm wit/zac browser/larumph. -Wit 14:16, 21 April 2011 (UTC)
  • HElo zaiger here. Also ED quit itself, nobody quit ED. Anyone who comes here from the old wiki is coming here because they love ED and want to continue editing ED. Sherrod has this "Get in line or GTFO, sheeple" attitude that is really concerning. I signed up to edit Encyclopedia Dramatica because it is Encyclopedia Dramatica. She can't kill both wikis that we spent thousands of hours on, and the forums, and expect everyone is going to be thrilled with it and happily edit OhInternet instead, that is fucking retarded.--Zæg 04:54, 23 April 2011 (UTC)
That and you got a gline for not following the herd. :P DoNotWant 05:00, 23 April 2011 (UTC)
lol yes but that was after the fact. Also it just proves how petty Sherrod is. I wasn't saying anything bad about OhInterbutthole when I was glined, I was simply mentioning this site. She glined me, a long time editor, former administrator and loyal fucking friend, just for mentioning this site. That is how badly she wants to kill ED and how little she cares about the people around her. --Zæg 05:31, 23 April 2011 (UTC)

Im from the original ED and im happy its back and all,but how do we prevent something like that from happening again?Without ads arent we going down the same line as the old site? — Preceding comment added by Frenchfriedfrenchmen (talkcontribs), who is too much of a fucking retard to sign their own posts. IT'S FOUR TILDES (~~~~), NOT ROCKET SCIENCE!

The hosting costs for a site this size are not anywhere near where the previous administration would have liked you to believe. --Zæg 03:26, 3 May 2011 (UTC)

Proposed Article of the Nao

I just pointed Encyclopedia Dramatica:Today's featured article/April 30, 2011 to Adolf Hitler, since April 30 is when he became An Hero. Arguably the article sucks. Almost certainly I fucked up and didn't set something needed for the Main Page to point to it then. But no one else set it so that's what I did. Wnt 04:13, 28 April 2011 (UTC)

For the hell of it I set Encyclopedia Dramatica:Today's featured article/May 1, 2011 to Drug. Just overwrite if you want something else. Might as well have something set. Wnt 04:43, 28 April 2011 (UTC)

OK, I've just started Encyclopedia_Dramatica:Article_of_the_Nao to cover this, give a place for discussion, and give a full list of the previous ones. Wnt 05:38, 28 April 2011 (UTC)

  • We still require a sysop to change all the wording to "article of the nao" isntead of "today's featured articles", because it keeps saying "check back later for today's" when we've actually got one set up. It also means we have to create redirects every time from feature article to "nao". Hagger 17:39, 28 April 2011 (UTC)
  • I've edited the main page to use "Article of the Nao" instead of "Today's feature article". - Shadiku 16:28, 29 April 2011 (UTC)

Somebody fix the main page so the Google hit doesn't start off "E-mail verification is required to edit ED, please verify your email"! "Welcome to the new Encyclopedia Dramatica" is OK, trolls would be better. Wnt 21:32, 1 May 2011 (UTC)
How? --Zæg 21:34, 1 May 2011 (UTC)
Hmmm, I just looked and now the Google hit started off with the contact info instead of the verification stuff. Which is better. Still think "pwned" should be in there somewhere. Wnt 02:09, 2 May 2011 (UTC) This might be relevant --Scruffeh 08:53, 5 May 2011 (UTC)

Alexa ratings

According to Alexa we have gained 1/4 of the pre-shut down traffic Keep it going !!!!!! Polmas 12:59, 3 May 2011 (UTC)

  • AND ohshiternet's traffic is continuing to go down. Bass 20:58, 3 May 2011 (UTC)
  • Honestly, why did they think they would get any support? Shitting on their giant user base for a website that appeals to no one is not going to get you views and big bucks, which is their obvious goal.Dungad 06:17, 5 May 2011 (UTC)
  • It'd be ideal to have more sites linking while accomplishing this through our own merit. --Praxlor 15:56, 5 May 2011 (UTC)

Image archive

Are these all the images of the old ED or just a large archive? Dungad 06:29, 5 May 2011 (UTC)

New mascot

I think we need a new mascot to replace Ae-tan. The reason I am saying this is because Ae-tan is now tainted, she was everything ED was but ED was taken down by sheer irony/treachery/greed/ect. That and it's clearly obvious Ae-tan bears some resemblance to GirlVinyl. Lord Tony 08:46, 6 May 2011 (UTC)

This is pretty much true. It's obvious ae-tan was created to resemble the founder. Tetrahegan 16:35, 6 May 2011 (UTC)
I vote for Giant Douche as the new mascot. Homo-sexual 19:52, 8 May 2011 (UTC)
Nah, I'm pretty chill with Ae-tan. MustSave! 23:36, 9 May 2011 (UTC)

A new Mascot would be cool, as I associate AE-Tan with everything that befell the old ED. The trick is actually finding a mascot that doesn't suck. If we can't, I'd say ditch AE-Tan altogether, but that's just my two-cents on it. -Nano 14:48, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

Maybe we should make ae-tan look alot less like sherrod da hippo instead of just ditching her altogether. Tetrahegan 17:12, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

Why fire Ae-tan when she's got nothing to do with the Oh Internet crap? That's like firing Hitler's secretary after he invaded Poland. Maybe talented dudes could redesign her due to her unfortunate resemblance to a certain someone although I had no idea that ED was founded by Da Hippo until last month and give her a little phoenix pet? For the lolz? Heiness 17:54, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

  • Ae-tan was made in GirlVinyl's likeness, therefore Ae-tan became tainted and now she is basically the likeness of a fat slob jew rat. Lord Tony 21:55, 11 May 2011 (UTC)
    • That sucks. Then, how about Anonymous himself? That blank green face and dat tie should be a good taintless mascot for the new ED.
      • Anonymous is for 4chan. Lord Tony 21:55, 11 May 2011 (UTC)

I think we can go for a dick girl mascot. She would have to look so hot you would think nothing is wrong with her. Then you find out she has a penis and your whole world comes tumbling down. This would resemble the likeness of ED and I think it fits in quite nicely. Lord Tony 22:26, 10 May 2011 (UTC)

Oh sweet jesus what... Tetrahegan 04:10, 12 May 2011 (UTC)
I'm down for a futa mascot, but only if she doesn't have balls. That's just how the D-man rolls. --Duckhat 10:41, 12 May 2011 (UTC)
IN FACT, who the fuck is in charge here? Let's just get a pic of that glorious faggot and gender bend the fuck out of him. And then give her fire crotch. There's not enough red-headed dickgirl mascots out there. --Duckhat 10:44, 12 May 2011 (UTC)


I tried uploading a pic, but then it told me that there is a duplicate of that file with a different filename than the article links to. What do? Jumpii 00:06, 13 May 2011 (UTC)

Rename your file, then try and upload again. Tetrahegan 00:08, 13 May 2011 (UTC)
The person above is clueless. Don't worry about it really. You can add speedy template to request delete. Just use the orig (not one you up'd) instead. TKN 00:11, 13 May 2011 (UTC)

Talk page freedom!

Without DeHippo and the other fascist mods trying to force everyone onto that advertisement-covered forum, we can start getting the talk pages going like they once were. I, for one, wanna see the epic 20+ page archive of the Chris-Chan chronicles start up again... -Nano 01:18, 13 May 2011 (UTC)

Oh fucknuggets AE-tan is Ohshitinternet-tan Found this when checking ae-tan fanart in some users Deviantart comments. Disregard improving her. We just need a whole brand new mascot to take the name. Tetrahegan 07:18, 16 May 2011 (UTC)

Oh fuck it's already in ae-tans article. Tetrahegan 08:11, 16 May 2011 (UTC)
Faggots don't need more spotlight. I'm with making a completely brand new one, or 1upping the old one beyond them. - Vinland 13:38, 16 May 2011 (UTC)
Of course deviantart faggots are going to like OhI, they hate ED. I think we already decided on the forum that we would just change the Sherrodesque hairstyle and add a scar or something. --zaiger (talk) 14:48, 16 May 2011 (UTC)
This is exactly why we need a new mascot. Lord Tony 17:01, 16 May 2011 (UTC)
Or we could flood the tubes with AE-tan rule 34 to such an extent that she's equated with porn.G'orzak 01:12, 18 May 2011 (UTC)
That will take too long. Lord Tony 10:04, 18 May 2011 (UTC)
How is it that Sherrod the Hutt wanted nothing to do with ED, and yet they just casually pair Ae-tan with OhI? 11:28, 19 May 2011 (UTC)
Because hypocrisy is an inherent trait, not a contracted disease. - Vinland 12:04, 20 May 2011 (UTC)
I'm sure we can think of something. "Ch-tan", Ae-tan's long lost sister? Fuck I don't know.--100px 23:39, 23 May 2011 (UTC)
We could just give up the old ae-tan and just have a new mascot under the name. Plus this give us the chance to improve upon the shitty design sheerod gave the old ae-tan. Tetrahegan 11:49, 24 May 2011 (UTC)

Request to have an UltramanCronos page made

Some guy who does does reviews of Godzilla toys for a living and thinks it somehow makes him made of win and gets butthurt when he losses to little kids on X-Box Live and records it to show how "unfair" the world is to him and how everyone is being "mean" to him and how he's the only "smart" person". He also geys upset instead of flattered when little kids try to copy his reviewing "style" because there "stealing" his "original" ideas and taking away his partnership money from Youtube. Not only does he review toys but he also plays with them, keep in mind this is a 21 year old man. And god only knows how much money he wastes on filling up his room with littlerily 1000's of these things some costing $100's. Basically a major attention whore on youtube. His real name is Frank Montalbano 3rd. He lives in California, go figure.

Vidya of the Nao

I know this was brought up way-fucking-back-when, but is there a timeframe in which this feature will be restored? - Saethwr 12:12, May 20 2011 (UTC)

Holy Jesus Crist on Chin-Chan's dick

The Main Page is starting to really come togather. I think it is way better than the Retro E.D's main page. Good job administraition. - Saethwr 20:11, 21 May 2011 (UTC)

Sonmanic's childhood

Apparently the Sonic Archie comic may kill Sally...

Could be some screencap gold? AFlueggel 00:30, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

Dr. Rushberry

I noticed an old ED user named Dr. Rushberry who I think was a past ED sysop. I noticed hes been editing at OhInternet but I want to know if he's actually joined the sellouts or not? Since most old ED users who might have edited OhInternet because they didn't know of this ED. If so he will be needed to be added to the sellouts template. If not then alright. Tetrahegan 14:13, 26 May 2011 (UTC)

RR is cool.--zaiger (talk) 14:14, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
Thats good then. Tetrahegan 15:53, 26 May 2011 (UTC)

Some proposal

Maybe post List_of_*chan_boards/Rewrite under articles that need help.--EmilyPlays 19:55, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
