⚠️ 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



    The Great LiveJournal Buyout of 2007

    Putin also is friend of Goat Frank! Be not afraid!


       
     
    It's the Gulag Jerry, the Gulag!
     

     
     

    Kramer, nigra lover

    On December 3, 2007, Interweb 2.0 moguls SixApart announced that they had sold their popular blogging site, LiveJournal, to a Bolshevik media company called SUP Fabrik.

    It begins...

    Half of LiveJournal's users have freaked out due to fear of the gulag, while the other half have proclaimed that Russian laws would grant them all the free shota and music they wanted. Of course, since the servers will be staying in San Francisco, and the same people will be running things, nothing at all will actually change -- but LJ users aren't going to let a little thing like facts stop them from going into full drama mode.

    User File:Lj-favicon.png jayspec swung right into the fray with a totally reasonable list of concerns:

       
     
    I'm sorry, I never post in these ridiculous wank-fest threads, but this could seriously be the worst thing that could ever happen to Live Journal.

    Freedom of Speech as we know it on Live Journal is over. And I don't mean fandom wank slash fiction freedom of speech, I mean real, political, "founders intentions" freedom of speech.

    Critics of Russian strongman Vladimir Putin have been imprisoned, gunned down by government thugs, and when they managed to escape the increasingly Czarist Russia, they've been poisoned by radiation while living abroad. This government doesn't abide criticism. And if you think it behaves any better to Russian companies it doesn't like, well, just ask what happened to Gazprom.

    I don't care what kind of commitment SUP has to LJ, or how separate a company under "American Laws" Live Journal, Inc. might be. If it's a decision between "have LJ, USA delete that post critical of Vladimir Putin" and "spend a year in the gulag", I think I know what anyone at SUP is going to choose.

    The Advisory Board

    Knowing that most of the plebes would be placated if "one of their own" were part of the new regime, SUP in their finite wisdom has set up an "Advisory Board," otherwise known as I could do a better job than them.

       
     
    The Advisory Board will also include two members from the LiveJournal community who will be elected by you (we've been inspired by the Wikipedia elections), the users.
     

     
     

    —SUP

    By taking a page from TOW, SUP is only going to replicate TOW-style admin drama on a scale that would make Jimbo piss himself. Few will object to the appointment of LJ founder Brad, but even fewer will be able to agree on any possible candidate for the other adviser position.

    Moar totally rational thoughts
