⚠️ 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.
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!
What is air
|ALERT: THIS IS A FORCED MEME|

No... Seriously. What is it?
"What is air" is a forced meme that originated on Tumblr as a catchall response to lulz. The implication is that the subject at hand is sooooo lulzy, the reader completely forgets how to breathe, thus prompting the response "WHAT IS AIR" or some variation thereof. Of course, given that Tumblr is populated by 16 year old girls, cancer, and fail, they have successfully destroyed their own meme, like a rabbit that eats its own young.
Birth of a Stillborn Meme
Right now you are probably digging out your eyes and screaming, "Wow, that is fucking annoying! Where the fuck did something this insipid come from?" Truth is, noone knows. Even the guys who operate and maintain Tumblr don't know. Its a goddamn clusterfuck of a mystery.

Beating a Dead Horse
In Tumblr's continued efforts to be more like its cancerous older brother, a series of raids were staged against Omegle and 4chan's /b/ forum, waving their new meme around like a flaccid exhibitionist's penis.
As the cancer progressed, Tumblr users somehow got it into their heads that they were LIKE OMFG EPIC TROLLS LOL. So last thursday, Tumblr staged a raid against Omegle using reblogged image macros to spread the word. The plan took the form of an ill conceive DDoS attack, but instead of crashing Omegle's servers, they only succeeded in annoying its lurkers.
Writhing in ecstasy after their perceived victory over the worthy opponent, Omegle, Tumblr decided that it was ready for bigger game. So Tumblr users launched their next series of raid related image macros, setting the 4chan raid date for November 15, 2010. This of course would consist of spamming "WHAT IS AIR", "U MAD", and other stolen memes. While some /b/tards raged hard, thus validating Tumblr's shit poor attempt at raiding, most Anon ignored the spam until admins set up an autoban that swiftly caught most would be trolls. Anyone posting "WHAT IS AIR" or the word Tumblr was given a polite warning, showing once again what decent people the 4chan community really are!
