Thizz in peace, our hyphy overlord.

Welcome to the Thizzlehat Junction Center. This is your place to mention news and anything needing adminly attention. You can also use the shortcut TJC.

While you wait for attention, have a look at what needs to be done around here by clicking the shiny blue links below.

Real-time discussion about ED content and/or help from an ED Sysop can be found at #wiki and #ed on IRC. Check your fear, drama and faggotry at the door.


About ED

Fashioned in the spirit of Ambrose Bierce's The Devil's Dictionary, Encyclopedia Dramatica's purpose is to provide a central catalog for the e-public to view parody and satire of drama, memes, e-pals, and other interesting happenings on the Internets. Our goal is to provide comprehensive, reference-style parody, to poke fun at everyone and everything. You can read more about the origin of Encyclopedia Dramatica in our About section.


Policy

Before making any contributions, be sure you have read over all of our policies. We will not hesitate to revert any idiotic edits and call you out for your stupidity.

Ways to Help


User Groups

See the User Group Rights page showing the rights of the users of each group. The group you're in dictates what your privileges are on ED.

Users

All are welcome, as long as you read and agree to the General disclaimer. The only real requirement is to create an emailconfirmed account to edit articles. ED doesn't support anonymous editing. (IP addresses)


General
  • Got a lulzworthy subject you feel needs to be written about? Submit it to the Needed/Proposed page and someone might pick it up. Make sure you check to see if there's already an article about the subject first.


Writing
  • Write an article. This is the best thing you can do for ED.
  • Check the Bad New Articles portal to see if there's anything that ought to be expanded or cleaned up.
  • Check the list of wanted articles. This is automatically generated when two or more pages contain links to a page that doesn't yet exist.


Front page


Images
  • Add images to articles, or upload better versions of wanted images. Make sure you give your image a detailed name instead of a bunch of symbols or numbers so search engines can actually find them and link to them easier.
  • Browse though unused images and files and find homes for them. Do not delete or put death notices on duplicate images, use the {{duplicate}} template instead.


Maintenance
  • Categorize articles. We have a list of existing categories and a list of uncategorized articles. To add an article to a category, click that page's edit link and at the bottom of the entry, type [[Category:'''(name of category)''']] and click "Save Page." Use the "Show Preview" button to make sure you typed a category that exists (red links mean you failed). Do not create new categories.
  • Rotate a Portal. Seriously, this would be highly appreciated. The goal is to have each one changed once every two weeks or so. Anyone can do this.


Request editor privileges

If you're interested in helping out further, request editor privs, assuming you've been around for a couple months or have otherwise proved yourself.

STAFF SUGGESTS NEEDED ARTICLES[edit]

Police.gif Don't archive this section, simply delete resolved entries.
  • Other staff pls elaborate on this, maybe keep it at the top of the TJC indefinitely. No matter how small the meme or internet event, we need a place to be new user's muse for writing articles. Please add to this list, and the next person who archives the TJC leave this post at the top please. --Mantequilla (talk) 00:51, 7 May 2015 (EDT)

  5. Serenity, currently a redirect to Firefly

  12. Kellyanne Conway - how is she not a rapidly-growing article already?
  13. Ben Fritz - Twitter is tearing this guy a new asshole. He is the guy who wrote the pewdiepie article that lost him his contract for making nazi jokes. Turns out he is a hypocrite (surprize!), Twitter is tearing him a new asshole and trying to get him fired for making mazi jokes himself.

  17. Kevin Spacey - despite its fairly rubbish start, this scandal looks very promising (KS has already admitted that there are "more stories [about him] out there.") I commend to the house this opening salvo about Spacey's porn-addicted Nazi pedo father who raped Kevin's Rod Stewart-impersonating brother and beat the whole family senseless on a regular basis.
  18. Hate speech: a crime in certain shithole countries, the concept of punishing people for hate speech is gaining a foothold in America.
  19. Adpocalypse: YouTube's new content guidelines for monetization, sometimes applied arbitrarily.

User groups / perms[edit]

Anyone have a good guideline how to setup groups / permissions for each of them. Our current ones have been fucked since the migration from 1.01 to 1.28 and then 1.30?  SeeBeen  Communist cat sig.jpg 12:06, 5 February 2018 (EST)

Uh, yes. I do. You knew that already though. Conradrock (talk) 13:33, 5 February 2018 (EST)
In fact, we need to talk about fixing some grants so I can get the ArchiveTeam Bot working properly to get ED fully and properly archived into WayBack. Conradrock (talk) 13:36, 5 February 2018 (EST)
  • here's two links that could come in handy. :) -hipcrime Emote Pop tart cat.gif 23:04, 5 February 2018 (EST)
Hipcrime is on point, the only rights you'll need to add are the custom ones for CheckUser, UserMerge, RenameUser, EditAccount, and Widgets, then start customizing what you need from the 1.30 baseline. Conradrock (talk) 23:28, 5 February 2018 (EST)
If possible, I would like Conradrockbot to have (viewdeleted) user rights so the monthly/weekly archives of this site are 100% complete, with deleted articles, so a rebuild would be significantly easier in case we need to rebuild. If there's a concern about having the deleted articles out in the general public, I can have the archiver put it in a separate password protected file and provide that password to trustworthy people. Conradrock (talk) 12:47, 6 February 2018 (EST)

2FA[edit]

I've added the extension for 2 Factor Authentication on the wiki, and enabled it on the Forum as well. You can use Google Authenticator on your phone if you want to use it (which I sincerely recommend)  SeeBeen  Communist cat sig.jpg 14:36, 7 February 2018 (EST)

This page needs some serious cleaning. -LIODPhoenix Emblem.png 16:32, 7 February 2018 (EST)

Encyclopediadramatica.SE[edit]

We implemented a secure workaround to bring the .SE domain back up to full operational status. This means that all of the remaining back links through out the Internet are now finally active again. That's it, thank you. Conradrock (talk) 15:13, 8 February 2018 (EST)

  • now the links from the gamergate era (internet aristocrat, rags, etc) are viable again. is it possible to do the same with .es, .ch and .com? SCHNITZEL RADDA RADDASchnitzel2.jpg 15:23, 8 February 2018 (EST)
My lawyer if we an use our new trademark to get .com back, mainly under the doctrine that the .com domain has been abandoned for some time, we've been operating under this mark, and the .com is just being parked. We can't get .ch back unless we have a presence in Switzerland, even if it's just a PO Box, but we would need some time of physical presence. We might be able to get .es back if we file a trademark complaint with the ES NIC, because Brandt let the domain lapse and now a domain parker is holding...per whois though it's due for renewal in October. Conradrock (talk) 15:36, 8 February 2018 (EST)

POTN[edit]

I've done all of them except one since the start of the month and it's becoming a PITA. Someone else's turn now. СидецарPutin surprised face 180.jpg 10:39, 11 February 2018 (EST)

You lazy faggot. Cobalt Cat.jpg CobaltCat 11:06, 11 February 2018 (EST)
  • just don't do an onideus an start braggin about it kthx SCHNITZEL RADDA RADDASchnitzel2.jpg 11:35, 11 February 2018 (EST)
The only reason he bragged about it was to make himself seem important and indispensable. Finding and setting regular POTNs is like deliberately choosing to stub your pinky toe on the frame of a door that you didn't even have to walk through, daily. СидецарPutin surprised face 180.jpg 12:57, 11 February 2018 (EST)

Banning people[edit]

Creating a shit article/writing is not a reason to give someone a ban. The site can't grow if you ban everyone that tries to add content. Stop it --Likeicare (talk) 21:19, 11 February 2018 (EST)

Eh, that hasn't actually happened so there's nothing to 'stop'. If you're talking about the particular pair of disruptive users who are churning out an endless series of abandoned crapstub SAAs about legal minors, then fine. If that's what you want to encourage and want visitors to expect, then I won't lift a finger to interfere.
СидецарPutin surprised face 180.jpg 22:38, 11 February 2018 (EST)


Well if you haven't done it then theres no need for you to be replying like this, right? --Likeicare (talk) 00:33, 12 February 2018 (EST)

What does that even mean? Here is the bit of the rulebook with which Schnitz and I were complying while dealing with the two users in question.


   
 
Users should not be blocked because they are "unfunny". If unfunny edits occur, a sysop should simply message the user and ask them to read some more articles and maybe help with stuff like organization, grammar, spelling, uploading pics, etc. If a user is genuinely trying to participate but continues to make dumb edits, revert them and try talking to them again. If this doesn't work or the user fails to comply, banning can be a last resort. Please add a reason for ban in the reason field and please do NOT ban people for infinite unless they are spammers/spambots and/or consistent vandals.
 

 
 

Chapter and Verse from the admin rulebook itself

  • This was their status a week ago
  • This is their status now
  • This is their anticipated status in a few days' time
We were making 100% sure that neither of us was imagining those users' disruptiveness. And checking that we both perceived we were entering ban territory. I deliberately started that discussion where "WittyUsername" see it immediately, hoping they both got the hint and banning them wouldn't be necessary. But, you've slapped us down and thrown away the rulebook now, so they have a free hand to carry on.
I'm not into mod sass and I try not to be a bureaucratic fuck - but we've ended up in a situation where two admins have been publicly undermined for proceeding cautiously and by the rulebook in order to deal with two problem users that are schoolkids who are just spamming the place for shits and giggles. This is, frankly, nuts by anyone's reckoning and I genuinely have no idea what rules you want us to follow - if any.

LiC, let Sidecar do his thing. Don't pretend you know jack shit about running a wiki.  SeeBeen  Communist cat sig.jpg 15:07, 12 February 2018 (EST)

Did i not clearly say that if you are not doing it then there is no reason to respond? Why are you sperging out? --Likeicare (talk) 01:22, 13 February 2018 (EST)

Can you send me a small bud? kthx. -LIODPhoenix Emblem.png 16:51, 12 February 2018 (EST)
sure just paste your mailing address right here and I'll ensure it gets sent Meepsheep :DD 00:17, 13 February 2018 (EST)

Culling the images[edit]

Since we hopefully have gotten rid of Onisperg, would it be an idea to trim the images? Many pages have more than 100 images, and 95% of them are just trash. Should they be moved to a subsection or just gone? Cobalt Cat.jpg CobaltCat 07:04, 13 February 2018 (EST)

I vote delete as much as possible, especially if its just more porn Meepsheep :DD 21:46, 13 February 2018 (EST)
agreed. pls leave E's uploads though, and If's, and DekoMan91's pls. shit still gets restored sometimes -hipcrime Emote Pop tart cat.gif 00:38, 14 February 2018 (EST)
Tbh there's a lot of trash on most of the articles and I imagine the images split off into different sized versions of the same file. Could save a lot of space and bandwith by culling them :0 - Phobos (talk) 11:59, 15 February 2018 (EST)
So far I ditched 300 images on the Halloween article. Nobody was ever going to go through that shit. Cobalt Cat.jpg CobaltCat 13:00, 15 February 2018 (EST)
I fixed the image uploads, extension was sperging out because it was trying to write to a non-existent tmp directory and reporting no free space.  — Preceding comment added by SeeBeen (talkcontribs), who is too much of a fucking retard to sign their own posts. IT'S FOUR TILDES (~~~~), NOT ROCKET SCIENCE!

You could pretty much delete onideus' entire upload history and it wouldnt make a difference to the site. Half of it galleries full of cat photos and he has also essentially admitted to uploading child porn but refuses to provide links when questioned about it --Likeicare (talk) 20:06, 16 February 2018 (EST)

Erase Onideus from history, got it. Cobalt Cat.jpg CobaltCat 03:50, 17 February 2018 (EST)

There's been a school shooting, at least 14 dead confirmed. shame will can't do the article for my lazy arse. LKCustomSig.jpg (talk) 17:28, 14 February 2018 (EST)

o shiit 14, if Will was here he'd be jerking off right now :D i was planning on doing the brittany venti article but i'll start this new one now SCHNITZEL RADDA RADDASchnitzel2.jpg 17:59, 14 February 2018 (EST)

QOTN[edit]

Looking around I notice that QOTN is being rotated every day now? It used to be every 2 days. Onideus is the one that started setting a new one every day, mid last year. Quantity over quality I guess. Has this been discussed? I always found settings quotes to be the most difficult part of the front page. Uberfukken (talk) 01:10, 17 February 2018 (EST)

  • i think vids are harder to set but yeah the qotn frequency should probably be lowered. i thought it was changed to match the rotation of the other xotn. SCHNITZEL RADDA RADDASchnitzel2.jpg 07:38, 17 February 2018 (EST)
  • I think everything should be rotated every 2 days. G Head.png oddguy G Head.png 09:20, 17 February 2018 (EST)
