⚠️ 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



    WikiFUD

    What? This article needs moar examples and PICTURES.
    You can help by adding moar examples and PICTURES.

    WikiFUD is the act of introducing fear, uncertainty, and doubt into the maintainers of serious Wikipedia articles. ie Fuck You Dumbasses. It involves identifying hard-to-prove but reasonable statements and requesting verification for them via in-line templates like {{fact}} or {{who}}, or article tags like {{unreferenced}}. The more difficult, embarrassing, or distressing it would be to provide a reliable source, the better your WikiFUD is. And remember, you have two audiences: the wikipedophiles who view this article as their personal property, preening over its quality and jealously guarding against obvious attempts to vandalize it, and those who actually read Wikipedia articles because they want to learn stuff.

    Good targets for WikiFUD

    Not all topics are conducive to WikFUD. Good choices for WikiFUD-style vandalism are those that already generate a substantial amount of criticism and controversy, with the ideal choice being a controversial subject with little popular appeal. This increases the likelihood that a call for verifiability and reliable sources will be thought to be coming from another expert in the field and the chance your WikiFUD will be taken seriously. Some good places to start:

    The overarching goal with WikiFUD is to vandalize without being reverted, and to do it in a lulz-inducing manner. Unaddressed WikiFUD should cause lulz in perceptive readers of the article. Attempts to address WikiFUD should cause lulz-worthy behavior by the maintainer(s) of that article, although this behavior has not, to date, been directly observed.

    Why WikiFUD?

    Wikipedia's imperfect standardization of rules and guidelines causes misunderstandings and errors by sheep who don't know to understand the intent of the guidelines and allows malicious behavior by those with an outside agenda[verification needed]. This has led to inaccuracies and omissions in the content of the largest Wiki of the whole Internets, which continue to this day. It is no less than our duty to expand on and propagate the errors in this broken system, so that all may know the pain and suffering we have known. NEVAR FORGET!!1
