⚠️ 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

    All wikis as 2021.

    A good comparison of some wikis out there today.

    A wiki is commonly defined as:

    n. A form of communism that uses a software program that never deletes anything but uses data compression of old edits, so if you fill it with something uncompressable like the exact value of pi, you can shut down a wiki. Similar to a blog, you can google bomb with a wiki by putting lots and lots of links with the same text to a website. Like a blog, wikis are the result of a single individual editor (SlimVirgin on Wikipedia and Taurin Fox on WikiFur, for example), and everyone else's edits are changed back to those of the one editor.

    This means that anyone can edit the content within this site - except for you! All your edits will be reverted, articles and pictures deleted, your user page vandalized, and your talk page frozen.

    If you are not quite sure how to use the site or want more information on how to write articles, we have extensive Help and FAQ sections. These sections will give you an idea about how to make edits and use the site. However, those sections can be edited as well! You are so fucked!

    With the introduction of Web 2.0 technology, creating a wiki has become quick, cheap, and easy, so it's no surprise that just about every fandom, series, movement, and subject imaginable now has its very own wiki. However, expanding and maintaining a good wiki is not as easy, so most wikis will quickly fall into a state of ruin and be abandoned, consisting solely of a handful of unfinished articles and scattered vandalism until the domain lease is up.

    Some Facts About Wikis

    • Wikis are responsible for 92% of the copypasta in the business and education life.
    • Mysteriously, NO sysop is not an idiot with power.
    • 78% of debatable articles have more than 20 irrelevant references nobody bothers looking at.
    • You are more likely to get banned from a wiki than any other website.
    • 89% of wiki editors are basement dwellers

    Most wikis run on MediaWiki.

    Primary RPG classes

    Real Editor
    A real editor edits in their interests, gets in edit wars over people removing their hard work, fights, cusses, throws tantrums when mad, etc. This type is the only type sincere about helping a wiki and unless someone occasionally vandalizes the userpage of another for reverting them, then they're just a poser. An example is User:Astanhope, regularly blocked for everything including vandalism, [1] and says things like "Why not keep your dick in your pants the next time and spend 20 seconds reading the article the next time before you delete?" [2] but continues useful editing.
    Honest Troublemaker
    Vandals, trolls, and even those who do sneaky vandalism, as long as they do it before trying to weasel into the power structure, they should be respected for at least being to a degree honest about it.
    Power Climber
    If you see someone doing boring maintenance or being civil, then they don't care about helping the wiki at all. They're only out to power climb. People in this class don't even want the power as much as the status to compensate for being losers in real life with no significant other and they also have no job or they could afford to buy a real MMORPG. People in this class may also be old people who are retired, their children never call or visit, and a real video game seems too kiddie for them. Example, see this RFA. 83 votes for and none against, and not even a single neutral. Obviously too perfect. That person also has a two year gap in the middle of their contributions during which time they possibly went around vandalizing on sock puppets.
    Griefer
    This class starts out similar to a power climber, but they don't do as much work and do a lot of sucking up. They make friends with everyone in power so they can bully all the real editors on the site. Where a power climber will watch recent changes and revert vandalism, a griefer will watch recent changes and revert useful contributions from people without a circle of friends on the wiki. This class is drawn to popular wikis, but they have trouble because so are the power climbers since every nerd thinks it's cool to be an admin of Wikipedia. Semi-popular wikis are where the griefer class really shines (a good example is Wookieepedia) because almost nobody cares about being admin of a little shit-wiki, so griefers can come in and eventually replace every single administrator with a griefer and once that is done, it's a military coup and all hell breaks loose.
