⚠️ 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!
The Great LiveJournal Buyout of 2007
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.

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.
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
- We have a right to know about things that haven't happened yet!
- Does this mean they're going to DELETE FUCKING EVERYTHING?
- Russian free speech laws ROCK!
- Look out for those Russian Nigerian spam haxors, yeah.
- OMG BRAD CAME BACK TO SAVE US
- The first martyr!
