|ED Policy Page
This article defines official ED Policy.
We sporadically publish full text backups of ED for mirroring and archiving purposes. This page will be updated occasionally with site dumps.
At Encyclopedia Dramatica we periodically release text backups of all of our articles. This is to fulfill a promise we made when we took over administration: That we would provide occasional downloadable archives in case anything happens.
We provide HTTPS access for our text dumps.
Below you will find the most recent backups. For older releases try praying to your Deity of choice.
Files are compressed using GNU-TAR, almost any archiver can decompress archives we provide. Because bandwidth is expensive, and the archives are large, we provide only 50 downloads per day.
If you see a HTTP 444 or HTTP 509 error, that means that daily quota has been filled. If you're a fucking moron and try refreshing, you'll get HTTP 418 error code, and your IP will be permanently banned across all of our servers.
TL;DR: If the download starts - great. If not, try tomorrow. Or the day after tomorrow.
