⚠️ 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 Strikethrough of 2007 is the self-important dramalicious name given to the mass (IRL l wish) deletion of poor-quality pedo and furry LiveJournals starting on May 29, 2007 and continuing for round 2 on or about August 2, 2007. The name was coined by the enraged pedos and furries themselves in the aptly-named File:Lj-favicon.png innocence_jihad, where most of them spent vast amounts of time creating numerous protest icons and banners and decrying the end of nerd civilization as brought about by the evil owners of LiveJournal, Six Apart. The floods of hate mail from butthurt furries and pedos was the catalyst for Brad's departure from LiveJournal. See below for sauce!

    Exercising their constitutional right to free speech on a privately-owned web site, over 38,000 Harry Potter and anime fags joined a separate "protest" community, File:Lj-favicon.png fandom_counts, to "show their solidarity" with their fandom otherkin. Since Pirates of the Caribbean had just come out, many of the oppressed used song lyrics from the movie as a rallying cry: "Yo ho ho, all together, hoist the colors high! Heave ho, thieves and beggars, never shall we die!"

    Meanwhile in the rest of the world, heterosexual soldiers were blown to bits by roadside bombs, North Koreans perished by the hundreds in gulags, and Paris Hilton prepared to serve her jail term. But nevar 4get, fandom counts.

    Finally. The reason it took them so long to respond to us is that they didn't take us seriously enough. Then when everything hit the fan and the uproar was heard across LJ and the internet, they realized that fandom has teeth and isn't to be taken lightly.



    You fucked up beyond recognition and some trite little apology, from you OR from some random CEO intent on censoring whatever might make some invisible kid cry while simultaneously making money of OUR creativity, will not fix what LJ has ruined. Congratu-fucking-lations. Now you guys will DEFINITELY get into heaven, now that the dirty, dirty people have been washed from your hands.



    Sequence of Events

    May 29, 2007

    • A redneck splinter group called Warriors for Innocence (spyware-laden site with srsly ghey banner here they think people might want to steal), desiring Christian domination and the fame of Chris Hansen, tells eljay's advertisers that their ads are being displayed on pedo journals.
    • Advertisers pull their ads.
    • Nerds and chomo kid-sister-fuckers go batshit.
    • Meanwhile Ed Rodriguez is still using LJ to find teenage "roommates".

    May 30, 2007

    • Numerous protest communities are formed and the generation of new icons and banners reaches an epic pace, becoming reminiscent of the brightly-colored protest banners of the Vietnam War era. And just as important.
    • Further sleuthing finds that one of the WFI "crusaders" is a batshit redneck with Confederate flags and anti-homo slurs pasted all over her blog. She also supports Cary Cartter as a write-in candidate for President. Cary Cartter happens to be a man with a girl's name and a zealot Christian Dominionist who lists The Passion of the Christ, The Lord of the Rings, and Star Wars as his favorite movies and model railroading as his favorite hobby. SMARTER E-SLEUTHS MAY SEE SOME IRONIC PARALLELS HERE.
    • The CEO of Six Apart, Barak Berkowitz issues a statement to CNet:
    Our decision here was not based on pure legal issues. It was based on what community we want to build and what we think is appropriate within that community and what's not.


    —Six Apart CEO and Jew, Barak Berkowitz, http://news.com.com/Mass+deletion+sparks+LiveJournal+revolt/2100-1025_3-6187619.html

    • This whips LJ fandom into a freshly enraged froth because it means someone is telling them they're not wanted, just like in the lunchroom in junior high.
    • The redneck Christfans gleefully e-taunt the horde here and here.

    May 31, 2007

    • Thus begins a series of posts on File:Lj-favicon.png news, all but the last of which hits the 5,000-comment limit with nerds cursing Barak Berkowitz and Six Apart, and furiously vowing to exercise their First Amendment rights on some other private web site pretty soon.
    • Many pedo journals are undeleted.

    June 8, 2007

    • The fucking EFF gets involved, probably just to make the Harry Potter fans STFU and stop e-mailing them.

    June 2007 - August 2007

    • Over 38,000 Harry Potter and anime fags didn't leave LiveJournal, but did leave their protest icons up.

    August 2, 2007

    On or about August 2, 2007, Six Apart banned several more pedo "fan" journals including File:Lj-favicon.png ponderosa121 for the image at right. Yet another fandom wank started on about page 7 of the most recent post in File:Lj-favicon.png news, including threats of class action e-lawsuits and hyperbolic unwarranted self-importance.

    August 3, 2007 - LJ Employee Mocks Fantards

    File:Lj-favicon.png pirate_eggie attempted to start a meta-wank in File:Lj-favicon.png efw by posting an ALL CAPS "insert content here" style post which sums up this entire article using over 9000 fewer bytes. The first comment was from File:Lj-favicon.png burr86, a LiveJournal employee who has written official policy posts on File:Lj-favicon.png lj_biz. The comment was mocking towards pedos, and of course, fandom took immediate offense. :) This sparked a crapflood of enraged comments, many in the original "insert content here" style. The entire thread has since been deleted, but is archived here.


    The reaction eventually went as high as Leva Cygnet, who would like you to know that zie is a member of a Fortune 100 company. Zie posted a pissed-off article about the mockery on Firefox News which included a link to the original comment (and later links to the copypasta once it was baleeted).

    August 6, 2007 - Brad's Departure

    Angry pedos invoke Godwin in the August thread.

    By Monday, August 6th, founder Brad had announced his ArchiveToday-favicon.pngdeparture from LiveJournal, stating he was "bored." He later backpedaled and claimed "that boredom isn't SixApart's fault." Of "the latest child porn debacle," File:Lj-favicon.png brad stated "...as far as I heard: child porn. [...] I heard about it for about 30 seconds just earlier today." Later:

    The flood of personal emails to me about this is a big part of the reason I realized that after 9 years, I need to find something else to do.


    Brad, http://brad.livejournal.com/2334177.html?thread=13873633#t13873633

    That's right. Fandom killed Brad.
