⚠️ 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



    Virtual gift

    A virtual gift is a feature (read: scam) from the makers of LiveJournal, added in the week leading up to Valentine's Day 2006.

    This revolutionary addition makes it possible for you to give LiveJournal real money in exchange for imaginary gifts, an idea first popularised by eBay and the Habbo Hotel. However, the virtual gifts are worthy of mention, as never before have idiots been so effectively relieved of excess fundage in exchange for non-existant gifts for others. This makes it possible to use money to show those nearest and dearest to you how much you love them without even having to give them anything.

    Some free virtual gifts are also available, sponsored by advertisers such as Diet Pepsi Max. The presence of sponsored gifts led to predictable drama as users screamed about being oppressed by corporate masters. It also led to LJ admins and news communities getting spammed with over 9000 virtual bottles of Pepsi.

    It should not be assumed that this is a desperate cash-in attempt on Brad's part, and any suggestion to the contrary would constitute libel, which we really can't afford, having already stolen three dollars worth of roses from him.

    TL;DR: Facebook did it better.
