⚠️ 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



    Poseur

    Your typical poser in real life. Be sure to always call them on their bullshit when given the opportunity.

    I don't know who this guy is, but no one knows more about Nirvana than me. Nobody.

    Theoretically, a poseur is a person who acts like they are an expert in a given field, while nothing could be further from the truth.

    In reality, however, the word "poseur" means "everyone except me". Yes, whatever you're into, from the Beatles to medieval antique butt plugs, you can always be pretty certain that you know a lot more about it than anyone. Everyone else who claims to be into it is just posturing, and their meager experience with it is dwarfed by your own God-like wisdom. After all, you liked butt-plugs before they were cool, and that's all that matters. A poseur can also refer to someone who attempts at using a stereotype to create a self-image that truthfully does not portray who they really are.

    A poseur may also be infected with a particularly nasty virus.

    This attitude is especially common among 16-year-old girls, and can be observed in just about every lifestyle and subculture in existence, particularly the following:

    Alternate spelling

    Faggots spell it poser, under the false impression that misspellings makes them trendy, which supposedly makes them more edgy in turn. Ironically, most people who spell it this way tend to be poseurs themselves.

    Either way works, it all depends on how gay you are.

    There is only one thing lower than an emo, and that's an emo poseur.
