⚠️ 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!
The ZX Spectrum
The ZX Spectrum was, is and will always be the most powerful computer evar. What made it so good was its total immunity to AIDS, due to the clever rubber keys on the 48K model acting as an anti-virus condom. The interweb was for a time completely AIDS free, so free in fact that blood could be purchased on eBay from Africa without giving it a second thought.
Made in England, it soon became one of the UK's largest exports, beaten by only two commercial properties - Pot Noodle and dogging. The Spectrum's only serious competion came from Commodore, however they brought about their own downfall after releasing the system exclusives Jet Set Allah and Suicide Bomb Jack II - as a result their offices and factories were fire-bombed by irate Arabs, giving Sinclair the freedom to run the UK/European drug cartel without problems from rival companies. At least until they got all cocky and fucked everything up.
If the Spectrum was so hardcore, one may wonder why the heavy boys in the IT industry struggle today. This is down to the fact that Bill Gates failed to steal anything from the Spectrum and instead used his own half-cooked programming to clone it and failed. This was an issue with all versions of Windows, so in his most recent OS Bill "borrowed" design ideas from Macintosh hoping to gloss over the gaping holes in his code. Unfortunately, as Apple has also found to their cost, this tactic only works on shallow assholes with no understanding of how computers work.
