⚠️ 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!
/z/ is a mysterious board that, much like Schrödinger's cat, exists and does not exist at same time. If one attempts to access 4chan.org/z/, an intentionally amateurish web-page may pop up, with a message at the bottom says "OH NO THE BOARD IS GONE". Filling 50% of the screen is this image, while a very loud sound of someone screaming ( ) plays in the background. It is unknown what the chances are of getting it, however it may sometimes just come out whenever it feels like it.
/z/ was brought about as a result of mootikins deciding to create a board with mods chosen from by the users of the site, in September/October 2004. At the end of a certain amount of time, the title of usermod would be rotated to another user. However, moot made the unfortunate decision of appointing Soviet Russia to the title.
Being the /b/tard they were, Soviet Russia decided to relentlessy cause havoc on the board, such as the creation of the nonsense word harbl, random CSS changes similar to those still seen on /b/ to this date, as well as creepy-ass backgrounds.
Eventually, /z/ degenerated into a cesspool of gay porno and stole memes from iichan and SA, as well as instituting a few of its own (Conan O'Brien, and the Pip Pip dog from iichan)—basically making it a cheap knockoff of /b/.
After a period of time, Soviet Russia "resigned" as /z/ usermod, and after a few usermod rotations, the board was deemed by moot and Snacks to be a failure. WT Snacks had recently added the option to ban users to /z/-only access, similar to the concept of the then-new FYAD Jr. board on SA, and so the imageboard /z/ was removed, and the page was changed to display a reference to FYAD: the Beecock pic, stating "OH NO THE BOARD IS GONE". The page looked like the following:
OH NO THE BOARD IS GONE
- Why do I see "OH NO THE BOARD IS GONE"?
