⚠️ 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

    That's not funny, my brother died that way

    A Summary of the excuse

    "That's not funny my brother died that way" is a satirical catch-all way to shut somebody down. It is descended from old pull-back jokes such as: "That's not funny! My grandfather died in Auschwitz!" "Oh god, I'm so sorry!" "Yeah, he fell off the guard tower."

    Once it found its way to /b/, all the unnecessary stuff such as setup and punchline were removed and it was retooled for chan humour which consists of simply saying the same thing over and over. In other words, it was neatly transformed from an ill-advised and decades-old joke into... well, the above basically, but without the joke.

    It's mostly used IRL by Moralfags and bawwwfags to guilt people into apologizing when they make fun of school shootings. Someone will say 'I thought Virginia Tech was fucking hilarious' to which someone will respond; 'THAT'S NOT FUNNY. MY BROTHER DIED THAT WAY' to which the troll will receive his much deserved lulz.


    I must express my deep dismay and shock at your utter disregard for human feelings and general insensitivity. You see, good sir, my kin has passed away in a similar manner. And despite the opposing parties chortles and giggles, it is most certainly not humorous.




    I'm sorry your brother died, that's really quite sad. :<


    How to Fail

    Man, that's rough. My brother died doing a Hustler Halloween Special dressed up as a monster too. :[

    Typically when used, it is an easy excuse to expose as fail. For example:

    Bill: Hey Chet, did you hear about Mandy getting eaten alive by that pack of wild dogs? HILARIOUS, amirite???

    Chet: Bill, that's not funny, my brother died that way.

    Bill: ...what are you talking about, dude? I AM your brother. I'm not dead, retard.

    How to Properly Troll

    Step 1: Find an obscure site where there seems to be a lot of moralfaggotry and whining.

    Step 2: Look for butthurt users and post something regarding your dead brother in response to them.

    Step 3: (OPTIONAL) Elaborate ad nausæum and continue to play the role so long as the lulz keep rolling in.
