⚠️ 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



    VLC Media Player

    VLC pushing the limits of GDI+ since 2001

    The above image doesn't know what its talking about. Look at how intensely VLC has visually progressed over the years!

    If you like to spend more time waiting for your font cache to rebuild than you do watching videos, then VLC Media Player is for you!
    VLC is a fugly non-zionist media player that is used to playback videos in unsupported containers which incompetent fools use to share movies online. Setting new standards in Graphical User Interfaces VLC pushes GDI+ to its limits to render one of the most visually appealing programs ever made. The only real reason people use it is because it can play just about any media format without fail. Well except Realplayer files, but who the fuck uses Realplayer anymore? It is used the most by weeaboos, since most anime episodes are saved as MKV, or in some bizarre codec that Windows Media Player or sometimes even Quicktime can't even recognize.


    DVD's

    The ability to play DVD's is one of VLC's features. The only thing that makes this special though is that you can skip to certain parts of the DVD by clicking and dragging the playbar, which is not available on some players which rely on the fast forward feature. Unfortunately on a lot computers, you have to go through a lot of stupid shit just to keep VLC from crashing as it plays a DVD. For example, sometimes if you just tell it to simply play the DVD, VLC will crash trying to load the DVD's menu. To counter this, you have to make it skip right to the movie instead.

    It Takes Pictures!

    An actually useful feature of VLC is that it allows you to take screenshots of the video without completely fucking them up. You may be thinking that this is no big deal, but that means you obviously haven't tried this before with Windows Media Player. For some bullshit reason when you try to screencap a video in WMP, it captures the image in the weirdest fucking way, making it practically impossible to do this successfully. VLC, however, can 100% effectively take a picture from a video file and save it somewhere. This, unfortunately, is the only real redeeming feature it has. Aside from the previously mentioned unsupported containers of course.

    The Actual Truth

    VLC, like many other open source media players, is nothing but a wrapper for ffmpeg codecs. So if you are l33t enough, you can compile your own ffmpeg which might result in performance that is at least 100 times better than VLC. Or if you're a hax0r, you can just pirate commercial applications, which is also at least 100 better than any open source crap.

    A dilute solution of TCP can even be used to treat both acne and anal pustules. Smells like a mental hospital.

    Features

    • Playback of obsolete containers.
    • Playing audio on h.263 files NO AUDIO, LOL
    • Cropping the video so that you can fit it to your 6757:3453 aspect ratio monitor.
    • A GUI.
    • An un-installer, You'll be needing it.
    • The ability to actually hear a movie on your MacBook thanks to the ability to have 4 times the volume on the laptop's shitty speakers.
    • Printing "VLC media player doesn't support samr codec and there's nothing to do about fixing this issue." on the console window.
