⚠️ 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 ($650) as well throwing the funds required for these other changes and aspects. If you would like to support Æ consider purchasing a copy of The Hustler's Bible or securing some Merch. Donating is also appreciated however I would rather give something back as per the two options above.
If you have any questions you can join our public Telegram chat to DM me privately or @ me in chat.
You can also email me via [email protected]
Merch notes: Thank you to all who have purchased merch. We will ship late January or mid February depending on our provider's speed.
Here's to setting the world on fire in 2021!
xChan Directory Dumper
The xChan Directory Dumper is a nifty piece of C++ witchcraft that makes it easy for you, Anonymous, to dump (hence the name) an entire directory of your porn or other images into a thread on most 7chan-style imageboards. The software runs on Windows and older versions required the Java runtime to function.
EXPERT PROGRAMMERS will use curl on jewnix, and can run something like this:
if [ "$#" -ne "6" ]
echo "Incorect syntx, $0 [directory] [board name(eg sci, b, h, s)] [thread no.] [username] [message] [wait time to post another image in seconds]"
for i in "$1"*jpg; do curl http://sys.4chan.org/$2/imgboard.php -F upfile="@$i" -F resto=$3 -F name="$4" -F com="$5" -F submit=Submit -F mode=regist -A "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:220.127.116.11) Gecko/20060728 Firefox/18.104.22.168"; echo "$i"; sleep $6; done
Run like so:
./massivedump.sh "directory location" b 202722548 "Username #tripcode" "Your message" 60
A hack of the second official version has been recently released. The hack allows you to dump directories of images on other chans once more.
See bottom external links for working download.
v3 was released November 2008 on /b/, almost a year and a half since the last official version, v2, was released. Included were new features such as
- New advanced "file-by-file" posting method (along with the original method from v1/v2), with the ability to enable and disable the upload of a file on the fly (note the checkboxes).
- No more Java files
- Some type of C++-based scripting language. That may allow EXPERT PROGRAMMERS to expand the functionality of the program, or create their own programs based off the XDD library.
Released September 2009 with some minor (but notable) fixes:
- Alphabetical file ordering fixed
- Improved Cancel button & new Pause button
The original version of the software had a built-in 30 image limit. This limit was (from a technical standpoint) completely uneccesary and it was suspected that it was built in for the lulz to piss off Anonymous when he tried to post something of epic proportions. However, a h4x3d version of v1 was published by 7chan's /pro/ board.
The original programmer denies these allegations, saying that he wanted to prove to mods that the program was "not for spamming" and he wanted to make sure that xChan Directory Dumper wouldn't be permabanned by them. The limit was removed in the official version for v2.
However, upon the removal of the limit, the program became so popular that people began using it for unscrupulous purposes. In response, 4chan decided to silently block the program. The original programmer, faced with the loss of his biggest customer base and unable negotiate a compromise with the 4chan mods (the OP prefered not to circumvent the 4chan limit), decided not to continue work on the program. However, a recent screenshot surfaced on /b/ claiming to be of v3, implying that the OP has decided to get back to work and finish what he started (see more above).
XChanDD appears unable to upload images over about 2mb, even to boards (such as /hr/) which have a much higher image limit.
These are for the current xChan Directory Dumper v3.1
