⚠️ 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!
|Motto||Our opinion > yours|
|Industry||Fanboyism, troll bait|
Xbox Republic is a collective of die-hard Xbawks fantards who constantly call out the PS3 on having no grass. Blind to their RRODs and playerbase of 8 year old boys, posters on Xbox Republic are completely oblivious and biased for their favourite Microsoft product as if Gates had made a new religion. Hell, here's a quote so you can see what is being dealt with:
U413 2: Electric Boogaloo
Xbox Republic was a response to a PS3 fanclub known as Sony Defense Force. However, a 360 fanboy known as GeneralMLD failed to see past that it was actually only a parody. In return he decided to make a forum dedicated to the Xbawks.
Like U413, Xbox Republic is locked down almost all the time to deter trolls from 4chan. Early in 2010 /v/ completely raped the shit out of Xbox Republic to the point that the 13-year-old admins stopped all registrations. However, a skillful troll can worm his way in via contacting GeneralMLD on YouTube. Whenever registrations do become available again, it usually results in a lockdown as /v/ instantly finds it and raeps the forum resulting in moderators patrolling 24/7, banning every single new account without them even posting.
Extremely devoted fantard GeneralMLD owns this forum. You may have thought that the forum owner would have been mature and that only the fanbase was giving a shit about which console has more RAM and whatever. Not in this case. GeneralMLD has gone far enough to create OC to defeat PS3 fanboys in the form of guides, and also uploads hypocritical bawww-filled YouTube videos regularly.
As you may have guessed, Xbox Republic is only for Xbox owners who white knight their favorite console to death. It has been established that the moderators are all 13 or 14 years old. Epic lulz were had when this was discovered, they responded by hiding their age on their profiles which produced even greater lulz as butthurt was clearly induced. If you don't own an Xbox, you are unwelcome. If you like the PS3, you are unwelcome. If you prefer to game with the master race, you are unwelcome. This way the community has less trolls and more circlejerking around the Xbawks. However most, if not all, members are underageb&s which is why the forum is shitty in the first place. Some extremely paranoid users call out all new posters as users of 4chan since they might say something bad about the 360. Serious fucking business.
360 vs PS3
The board known as 360 vs PS3 is a board which calls for easy trolling. Moderators lurk regularly to delete posts that reference that PS3 has an edge in something nobody cares about. The fanboys here are extremely cautious with new users just like Wikipedia are with theirs, calling for posters to be banned if they "attempt" to spark lulzy drama, effectively trolling themselves.
Here, moderators and users alike are immature as ever and resort to "PS3 has no games" jokes to spruce up threads. The board was once called The Console War, but this was scrapped so Xbox users can pretend their apparently exclusive games aren't on the PC platform.
Opinion is different? You're a troll, GTFO
For some reason, a game coming out on the PS3 is really, really bad news
By ridiculous statement, he means your opinion.
PS3 Fanboy Ownership Guide
GeneralMLD also created a guide called The Blueprint to Own Any PS3 Fanboy. The guide contains instructions of what to say in arguments over the Internet. Regardless of the tl;dr, the guide simply states to link people to certain websites and then add up scores to prove which console is the best.
—Winning arguments over the Internet is down to how retarded your arguments are.
As you can probably tell, this thread was immediately praised by everyone on the forum. However, Anons from /v/ had something else to say:
Even funnier, this page shows that the Wii has far more sales than both consoles. Even the DS has more sales. Seeing that GeneralMLD's guide uses facts and figures, this entire guide is pretty much self-pwn and void.
The Troll Graveyard is where all supposed troll threads go. Looking very similar to /v/ on a typical day, these threads are usually at most NPOV. If you're not kissing Microsoft's ass, gg, you're a troll.
—TheTruthSettingUFree, getting called a troll then getting banned
GeneralMLD is a 23-year-old devoted Microsoft fanboy. While not posting on Xbox Republic, GeneralMLD is lurking YouTube for videos from game critics. If he finds one badmouthing the 360, he will freak and post a 10 minute video response filled with butthurt because his console wasn't preferred.
GeneralMLD's believes that Xbox fanboys like him are a minority and that PS3 fanboys are found everywhere on the Internet, always ready to keep the black man down. While he maintains the purpose is trolling PS3 fanboys, anyone who exposes the endless flaws in his videos is immediately blocked. All one has to do is google GeneralMLD or GhostMLD and one will find he has been signed up to many sites for some time. Clearly this specimen has a fantastic social life.
—GeneralMLG, calling himself not normal
The points Xbox Republic users miss
- They can't move their consoles while using them or they get scratched discs. You're fucked if you have a little brother/sister/pet in the area.
- They have to pay monthly for Xbox Live usage, which is why it's more profitable (plus most of the dashboard is advertisements anyway).
- They often call some games "exclusives" when they're already on PC as well. Confusing isn't it?
- They are posting on a locked-down, biased-as-fuck forum as if it is utopia.
- Valve moved to the PS3 due to Microsoft's DLC rules sucking dick.
- They are fanboys calling others fanboys.
- They are experiencing Buyer's Remorse.
- PC Master Race
Most of Xbox Republic are fantards in denial. This is made obvious when none of them decide to point out Microsoft's flaws.
—DemonWolf. And he's a moderator.
Additional note: Half-Life 2 was released in 2004 and RE4 was released in 2005. Wtf is going on here.
