⚠️ 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 Content Strike of 2008

    Fighting for LJers' rights to... uh... have "slash" listed as a popular interest?

    The Great LiveJournal Content Strike of 2008, referred to by its participants as The Content Strike or 3/21, is a protest being made by the more histrionic elements of LiveJournal's userbase, in response to a few policy changes SUP has instituted since buying LiveJournal. It all started when SUP eliminated Basic accounts, followed by a series of news posts not clarifying the changes, followed again by the blocking of certain interests on the popular interests page. DISREGARD THAT, IT WAS A TECHNICAL ERROR.



       
     
    MLK took action, these LJers are taking action, it's a step towards something.

    From a product perspective it was more about creating a new registration process that was easier for new users to understand.

    We do not consider it necessary to inform those, who have not opened a basic account during 9 years of LiveJournal’s existence, that there is no such an opportunity any longer.

    Fact: Capitalist policies are a Communist product.


       
     
    The audience of LJ is divided into 3 groups. There is the silent majority, which uses LJ for their own needs and is indifferent to who, when and with what money made such a resource and supports it. There are the positive minority (7-10 percent in the Russian LJ), these people like LJ, they consider it useful and want it to develop further. They help us, including constructive criticism, thanks to which we correct our mistakes. And there is the third category. They endlessly, during the entire existence of LJ promote lour initiatives, whose only purpose is to bring harm to LJ, its founders, their goal is to criticize, destabilize and ruin our reputation. They are usually motivated by wanting to attract attention to themselves. And they are successful every time.

    As of 2am UTC 3-22-08, the Great LiveJournal Content Strike of 2008 has proven itself to be an epic failure.

    Global Reaction

    India joined an international chorus of calls for dialog yesterday after pro-basic accounts protests in cyberspace spilled over into street violence, while Japan urged File:Lj-favicon.png _b0st0n_snark to consider the implications for the blogosphere.

    International condemnation of LiveJournal Inc.'s action was muted.

    LiveJournal's peak user community, File:Lj-favicon.png yiffexchange, was mostly shut down last Thursday, two days after File:Lj-favicon.png bipolypagangeek security forces crushed days of protests. File:Lj-favicon.png theljstaff said only 10 people were killed, but the blogosphere's government-in-exile, Frank the Goat, said the death toll was closer to 9000.

    The spiritual leader of LiveJournal and Nobel peace laureate who fled to India in 2007, Brad Fitzpatrick, said that the international community had the “moral responsibility” to remind LiveJournal Inc. to be a good host for emo, morbid self-absorption and "irony", but added that LiveJournal deserved to sell all your dox.

    LiveJournal Inc. has declared a “people’s war” of security and propaganda against support for the Brad, underlining that it will not heed calls from around the globe for a lenient response to the strike.
