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)

Zoey Tur - Transsexual Twitter-favicon.png Zoeytur threatened so send Twitter-favicon.png benshapiro home in an ambulance on live television (Dr Drew) and later threatened to curb stomp him on twitter for stating his beliefs that Bruce Jenner is a man no matter what he says. Google will give you a lot of information. They even had an outlash at the official ED twitter account if you search both names together. --Mantequilla (talk) Mantequilla.png 00:50, 21 July 2015 (EDT)
  4. Serenity, currently a redirect to Firefly
  5. White Girls Fuck Dogs: currently a redirect to Whitney Wisconsin - new meme
  6. Sandy Hook Conspiracy Theories - covering notable conspiratards and etc
  7. Inauguration of Donald Trump - massive protests, riots (see DisruptJ20) and drama, spawning new carl the cucks like Luke Crywalker.
  8. Kellyanne Conway - how is she not a rapidly-growing article already?
  9. 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.
  10. Shadow Brokers L33T hax0rs
  11. The Internet Of Things - How are we ignoring this? Sure, hook your fridge, car, lighting, TV, and central heating up to the internet. What could possibly go wrong?
  12. Hate speech: a crime in certain shithole countries, the concept of punishing people for hate speech is gaining a foothold in America.
  13. Adpocalypse: YouTube's new content guidelines for monetization, sometimes applied arbitrarily.
  14. Louis Farrakhan or Nation of Islam. Some drama with Women's March organizer Linda Sarsour and now some Democrats too. He says lulzy things about the Jews and claims white people were created in a lab by a scientist named Yakub. -hipcrime Emote Pop tart cat.gif 07:30, 8 March 2018 (UTC)

Mainpage lag[edit]

I can't be alone in noticing that the POTN for Oct 13th is still on display, despite IRL being halfway through Oct 14th. This only seems to happen with political POTNs relating to the Trump administration.
Is there something we should be told?
СидецарPutin surprised face 180.jpg 16:54, 14 October 2018 (UTC)
As if by magic, I see it's now been updated. Who pulled what lever to make this happen?
СидецарPutin surprised face 180.jpg 17:39, 14 October 2018 (UTC)
i reckon it updated at 1700, about six minutes after you posted here. it seems to update for me at 5pm, ymmv. :] -hipcrime Emote Pop tart cat.gif 18:25, 16 October 2018 (UTC)
I reckon you're mistaken. As of just a few minutes ago, the mainpage went from displaying the XOTNs for Oct 22, to displaying the XOTNs for Oct 24. The XOTNs for Oct 23 never appeared at all. Computers don't lose count, and the Twilight Zone doesn't exist, so this was done deliberately by someone with access to the site's backend.

Reinstalling Extension:RandomSelection[edit]

The background-color on the Vaporwave page used to be selected by {{User:Meepsheep/Vaporwave/colors}} on each page load, but I noticed that the template was broken. The template made use of the <choose> tags, which are used by the MediaWiki extension Extension:RandomSelection. I checked Special:Version and sure enough, there's no RandomSelection extension installed.

Figuring it was once previously installed, would it be possible for a sysop to reinstall the extension? It would be cool to see again on the site!

Near the end, he talks about Cobalt and "Shit Rat" is former ED admin Schnookums. There's gonna be another livestream tomorrow with more stuff. Maybe even a reference to Cobalt's... uh... "preferences"...

This guy has a quarter million subscribers? For reading out other people's internet posts, padding his delivery with very long pauses, and laughing at his own mediocre jokes (which he then repeats, to make sure you've heard them properly)? All while doing such minimal video work that it might as well be a podcast? Holy crap, why aren't we doing anything with ED's channel? We could wipe the floor with this sort of no-mark.

At least hospital patients have the excuse that they are trapped in one building, most likely confined to their beds, and will try anything to take their minds off the gloom and despair of surgical interventions following serious injury or illness.

update on the donny long situation[edit]

User talk:Iwillstopnow according to the bottom post, the faggot who is really causing the massive shabazz-rivaling vandalism is eddie dizal. should we delete his page so he will fuck off (and maybe bring back the donny long page)?I need a double cheese burger!

Done  SeeBeen  Communist cat sig.jpg 00:12, 2 November 2018 (UTC)

Temporary measures[edit]

Due to the fact we have two madmen going to war over their respective articles and vandalizing website (misters D and E), I've removed both articles, purged images, blacklisted redirects etc. New users (registered in the last 7 days) can only make 2 edits per minute, or create one page per minute. Registrations are temporarily closed. Waiting on hipcrime to send me info regarding the group settings he wants, and I'll install some anti vandalism extensions.

Articles were shit, and don't warrant all the time we need to spend cleaning up vandalism because of them  SeeBeen  Communist cat sig.jpg 00:11, 2 November 2018 (UTC)

  • i would like to note that even after you deleted the eddie dizal article, donny (as "BUGMENOTHOMO") vandalized every page (as well as my talk page and someones user page) that he could find on R/C. i could tell that he was going through R/C again because he blanked SuperMarioLogan, a page which was being edited properly just mere minutes before he created the BUGMENOTHOMO accountI need a double cheese burger! Don’t be scared! So no hot pepper! Also don’t forget to coke! (visit hell) 00:17, 2 November 2018 (UTC)
Ban all his socks, revert vandalism. Reg's closed for now. I'll setup a bot during the weekend to prevent blanking vandalism.  SeeBeen  Communist cat sig.jpg 00:21, 2 November 2018 (UTC)
I protected the Donny Long article against creation just in case until then, dunno if it's ever gonna be restored with the crazy bastards waiting to do dumb shit, but until it is, that should help. DarkLordTR --> Talk here, n00bs. 11:58, 2 November 2018 (UTC)
for SeeBeen: okay I will look at the way our Special:ListGroupRights are, and compare them with other small/medium wikis. EDitors used to be able to move pages and protect them, unless I am misremembering which is possible. while I am doing that, anyone with ideas or a wishlist for userrights please post them here. it will help me a lot. I am thinking of User:Oblique, User:JuniusThaddeus (yes yes I know), and probably User:Meepsheep, and anyone with ideas. more soon. :] -hipcrime Emote Pop tart cat.gif 02:32, 2 November 2018 (UTC)
i think simply restoring move-page and protect-page rights for EDitors should be good enough but maybe not, because there are times when the sysops aren't awake during vandalism and wake up to a huge mess. any input is welcomed, in the meantime i will DM Meepsheep on Twitter. :] -hipcrime Emote Pop tart cat.gif 05:44, 5 November 2018 (UTC)
okay SeeBeen: Meepsheep is busy IRL and will be for a little while. what would be nice is to have EDitor at least do what it did before, like rollback, page protection, page moving, and autopatrolled. at least for now. i see "staff" is a new group, maybe assign the ability to block to certain users, unbundling the sysop group of rights in a way. for now that's all i got, but at least restoring the rights EDitors had before the MediaWiki upgrade. -hipcrime Emote Pop tart cat.gif 23:20, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

Moderation[edit]

What do you think about using this extension: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Moderation It's called moderation, and it could stop new users from wreaking havoc.  SeeBeen  Communist cat sig.jpg 10:15, 3 November 2018 (UTC)

Approving each edit sounds like a pain in the ass. It would eat up time, slow down coverage of breaking news, and build legal risks for moderators. We would have to change our disclaimer, since the moderation extension would break the legal basis for things like "Each contributor of encyclopediadramatica.rs holds full rights and responsibilities for materials they personally publish via this encyclopediadramatica.rs web site. By use of this site, you accept and recognize this qualification and indemnify not only the owner of encyclopediadramatica.rs but also all other contributors to encyclopediadramatica.rs from any legal action" and "please pursue your remedies against that poster as encyclopediadramatica.rs is not responsible for their words." The moderator extension would create collective responsibility for anything that happens. How about we use Extension:ConfirmAccount instead? Approving accounts is simpler than approving each edit. The spammers I have seen tend to use the same pattern with usernames. I need a double cheese burger! Don’t be scared! So no hot pepper! Also don’t forget to coke! (visit hell) 11:02, 3 November 2018 (UTC)
This sounds nice, we can also use Extension:ConfirmEdit to further curb on newbie vandalism.  SeeBeen  Communist cat sig.jpg 12:22, 3 November 2018 (UTC)

Rome Viharo[edit]

There's no point in having Rome Viharo's article here that was repeatedly deleted and isn't funny. He's not noticeable and I also recently submitted a request to remove his RationalWiki article. I appreciate if you could delete it; JuniusThaddeus also asked for it to be deleted.MrStrong (talk) 14:06, 3 November 2018 (UTC)

Whether or not you would appreciate it is not important to anyone except you. So be quiet.

Thousand Oaks Bar Shooting[edit]

Who wants to start this article? I don't feel like doing it. It's becoming the normal and sometimes we can't even keep up with the quota. -LIODPhoenix Emblem.png 15:24, 8 November 2018 (UTC)

Think you've put your finger on it, there. When mass shootings are almost everyday occurrences, a mass shooting has to have some extra pizzazz to make it ED-worthy. Not heard anything interneteresting about this one yet, but perhaps it'll turn out to be notable. Perhaps we need a page briefly summarising the "also-rans" of shootings for each calendar year? (Say, one para each).

Problems with my article[edit]

Most ED articles seem to be satirical with at least some underlying truth; in contrast my article was created by some people trolls e.g. Mikemikev who have a grudge against me and wrote nothing but lies and smears.

-- I'm not and have never been asexual, mentally ill, psychotic, a Nazi, an ethno-nationalist, a anti-pornography activist, SJW, Antifa etc. It's a 100% fake biography written to negatively influence web searches of my name. Furthermore, large sections of the article aren't me, e.g. the TombRaiderForums from 2006, Army Men 3d etc. None of that stuff is even mine. Also people can simply find me on Twitter to see I'm none of these things. I've since had many people become confused by the ED article, since what they are reading is nothing like me.MrStrong (talk) 11:28, 11 November 2018 (UTC)

You're still a faggot, though. Cobalt Cat.jpg CobaltCat 12:10, 11 November 2018 (UTC)

All Clear?[edit]

I think D and E have finally fucked off by now (thank Sidecar, Seebeen, Hipcrime, GirlOnInternet, and anyone else I didnt mention by name.) It might be safe to enable account creation again, but I want to run it by the staff just to triple-check. Yellowbird (talk) 09:00, 14 November 2018 (UTC)

This is the mainpage aotn/potn juxtaposition today:

Seriously? If you want to write a screed of text about something topical, do it as AOTN.

What's even sillier about this unholy mess is that there was no AOTN set when this abortion was set as POTN anyway. Yes, I'm talking to you. You know who you are!
