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.

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

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)

  1. Hate speech: a crime in certain shithole countries, the concept of punishing people for hate speech is gaining a foothold in America.
  2. Adpocalypse: YouTube's new content guidelines for monetization, sometimes applied arbitrarily.
  3. 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.
  4. MAGA hat. There have now been several violent or lulzy events around this particular hat. it's either a meme or a meme component, and now that people are comparing it to the swastika and the white hood of the KKK, it seems logical to have an article on the object that launched a thousand hurt butts.
  5. Learn to code: good advice, or targeted harassment?
  6. dilation station: Google seems to think it has to do with childbirth, but it's actually a thing that trannies have to do to keep their gash from closing over, i.e.: they have to stop marching/running to "dilate" which involves a glass dildo. apparently people are complaining that these glass dildos aren't being cleaned after use. 🤮
  7. Tommy Robinson - UK manlet, EDL founder, serially-convicted crook, barely-in-the-closet-fascist, rabble-rouser, and cast-iron idiot. His alternating pratfalls and battlecries are occupying around 30-40% of news coverage in Bong. Srsly, he whirls in and out of irl and ol drama like a carousel pony. Also, his real name is Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, and fsr it is traditional to mention this at all times, regardless of context.
  8. Ilhan Omar - Congress' token sandnigger. Good entertainment value bcs she bamboozles teh Jew by making ludicrous pro-SJW comments (happy merchants) and then denouncing Israel (unhappy merchants). Also, it's probably just a matter of time till some hick with a sniperscope tries to rub her out for being a terrorist.


Request to remove lies and defamation (again)

Below is a wall of text you should probably avoid.

Oliver_D._Smith is filled with lies and defamation; as an example the opening paragraph:

  • "Oliver D. Smith (aka oliveratlantis, Atlantid) is a socially inept, misanthropic loner who is borderline asexual.

All three descriptions are false. I'm not and have never claimed to be "[borderline] asexual". I'm also not socially inept or a misanthrope.

  • "During his plentiful free time, he is an obsessive geekazoid who blogs about the lost City of Atlantis, a 100% fictional place that Oliver insists was real."

I don't argue Atlantis was real, but fiction i.e. the opposite of this false claim. I published a peer-reviewed article in 2016 clearly outlining the evidences Atlantis didn't exist as a real place and was imaginary.

  • "He is better known for his anti-pornography views"

I don't hold "anti-pornography views". My few comments on this subject are wildly taken out of context - I told Abd that looking at porn/talking about sex online isn't healthy for a 75 year old. I think that is a reasonable comment. Also, years ago I criticised Michaeldsuarez for disturbingly uploading and posting homosexual porn (including a photo of three elderly men having oral sex with each other on a bed) on my article (Suarez is probably gay). I'm sure most heterosexuals also find homosexual porn disgusting; this doesn't make them "anti-pornography".

  • Extensive harassment campaigns against Kiwi Farms and Encylopedia Dramatica.

I'm not involved in harassment campaigns against here. I merely complain about the lies (most of them written with malice) trolls post about me here to abuse web-searches of my name.

  • "A massive wikisperg, Oliver is infamous for going to extremes to remove websites or articles that he believes have offended, disparaged or merely criticized him; this includes accusing his opponents he has met online wikis (e.g. his arch-enemy Mikemikev) of various crimes, setting up attack blogs on them, hounding, stalking and impersonating them using sockpuppets, and even sending threats with the purpose of trying to coerce them into deleting everything written about him. In numerous cases this has worked."

Complete nonsense, furthermore it is Mikemikev who spends his existence online impersonating me to the extent Kiwi Farms recently banned him (again) for using my family member photos on his accounts.

I'm also open to criticism and even encourage it, but making up lies and character assassinating me isn't criticism.Yetis (talk) 11:49, 1 July 2019 (UTC)

The rest of the article is also all lies. There's not one bit of truth in it; ED is abusing web-searches of my name.Yetis (talk) 11:53, 1 July 2019 (UTC)

Second paragraph, also filled with misleading claims, lies and misinformation:

  • "Oliver sided with conservative yellow journalist blogger Vordrak (Samuel C. Smith) to close Kiwi Farms, while at the same time denouncing The Donald (whom Samuel supports) on Vordrak's blog."

I've not had contact with Samuel Collingwood Smith for over 2 years now. I've also written very little about Trump (two brief comments since 2016) and it's unclear why this is even mentioned.

"The alliance of Oliver and Vordrak has been called "strange bedfellows", although it actually makes sense Vordrak "the witchfinder" and Oliver "the puritan" would unite: they both resort to threats, intimidation, fabricating evidence and posting smears about anyone who disagrees with them or who challenges their personal views, such as accusing them of paedophilia (or more often in the case of Oliver, as "perverts")."

All these claims about threats and harassment are false and defamatory. I've come across thousands of people on wikis, and have only called 3 or 4 as creeps or perverts. And as noted I've not spoken to Vordrak in over 2 years and we've fully distances ourselves from each other. At the very least this should be removed or updated.

  • "Nate Spidgewood is another bat-shit crazy internet associate of Oliver; both have worked together in Taking Down ED."

I've never worked with Nate in taking down ED. I've also only ever spoken to him once and he was never an "associate" of mine. He has severe autism and I never supported his antics on wikis. In fact the last I spoke about him was very critical.Yetis (talk) 14:09, 1 July 2019 (UTC)

Third paragraph:

  • "Oliver identifies as asexual or on the gray spectrum between asexuality and heterosexuality (showing only occasional interest in sex). For this reason he rationalizes his attacks by seeing himself as a puritan, calling all his opponents "sex maniacs", "perverts" or "sex pests"."

I've never identified as asexual, but always as heterosexual. Years back though I once used the term "hetero-demisexual" which some classify as Grey-A. Of course at that time I didn't realise insane trolls would take that out of context and then spread lies about me somehow being an asexual. Abd, Mikemikev and other trolls still do this despite in the comment they quote-mine and distort - I clearly identify as heterosexual.

  • "Oliver greatly admires John Harvey Kellogg, not for his cereal but for his celibacy and bizarre masturbation-prevention techniques such as electrical shock. Vordrak is not a fan of Kellogg, criticizing his work as "sexually abusive" and "pseudo-Victorian paternalism". Over this disagreement about Mr. Kellogg electrocuting people's genitals, Oliver posted to Vordrak a Archive today-ico.png reply on his blog."

A comment wildly taken out of context. I fooled around with Kiwi Farmers (when I had a thread) years back and wrote some obviously tongue in cheek comments ; Kiwis at that time were watching Vordak's blog 24/7 and I thought this comment was pretty funny. Only autistics would literally interpret this; Vordrak and me both knew it was a joke.Yetis (talk) 14:30, 1 July 2019 (UTC)

  • "In 2006, Oliver, then about 15 years old, posted on the TombRaiderForums (as the user Archive today-ico.png Scionic Evil) that he had once downloaded Nude Raider as a patch for the PC game Tomb Raider or its sequel Tomb Raider II, making Lara Croft fully nude. Oliver is known to get very defensive over this since he sees it as tarnishing his reputation against pornography. He has complained he didn't expect someone to dig up his internet history from over 10 years ago, dismissing his love of naked Lara Croft as "teenage immaturity". Oliver still gets into a fit of rage whenever he sees someone quoting this comment, therefore it is posted here in big quotation marks."

Very inaccurate. I didn't download Nude Raider which was for TR I, but a "naked" mod for Lara in TR II. I highlight "naked" because the mod was Lara Croft in a bikini, not even fully nude. Secondly I downloaded that in 2000, when I was 9-10 years old. To date, I've downloaded over 100 mods for different TR games, none of them are "naked". I've never had any "love of naked Lara Croft" although this misinformation is now spread all over the internet because of the lies written on ED trying to sexually smear me.Yetis (talk) 15:58, 1 July 2019 (UTC)

No one cares, stop shitting up TJC you sperg. 15:59, 1 July 2019 (UTC)

—Agent19

  • For context, this is from the talk page of the Montagraph article. Montagraph and agent19 are a couple of literal boomer conspiracy theorists who have been active online for over a decade, collecting other nutters in antic that often end with the crazy fucks killing themselves because they think the govet is after them. Montagraph recently got plunged back into the public eyes after getting into a slapfight with Mister Metokur and is known for trying to dox and sue anyone who talks about him online or calls him a pedophile (don't worry, he's not very good at it). I have updated his article as best I can (it's really tedious and I'm bored with it) and added Agent19 to it since he wasn't actually in the article when he asked me to remove him, and he asked so nicely, after all.

Case: xanjr

I, regretfully, have been alerted by xanjr of alleged gross misconduct on the part of our administration.

  • [9:25 PM] xanjr: hello friend
  • [9:26 PM] xanjr: We had a conversation a couple of months ago.
  • [9:27 PM] xanjr: I'm User:Xanjr. You warned me about a discrepancy on a certain article :smiley:
  • [9:28 PM] xanjr: Your prophecy was true. I got myself into trouble just the way you told me.
  • [9:30 PM] xanjr: You seem like a rational person and also a BUREAUCRAT :innocent:
  • [9:30 PM] xanjr: So it would be okay to share my story with you.
  • [9:31 PM] xanjr: Long story short: I pissed off some people and they ganged up on me. :innocent:
  • [9:33 PM] xanjr: User:Creative_Username and User:MJ2.0 admins
  • [9:34 PM] xanjr: you also told me that my German sucked :expressionless:
  • [9:34 PM] xanjr: LuL
  • [9:35 PM] xanjr: however, back to the topic: it all started with me creating: 'Mustafa Kemal Atatürk' article.
  • [9:35 PM] xanjr: I tried to do it like Vladimir Putin page.
  • [9:38 PM] xanjr: User:Creative_Username saw this and deleted my article. Encyclopedia_Dramatica:Your_role_as_an_ED_Sysop - I read all of this; it clearly says: "It is NOT okay to

delete/move: Posts which you do not personally agree with and posters that disagree with you. Due to recent abuses, the privilege for Sysop to ban users and delete articles unchecked have been removed. As such, you will now need a consensus before deleting any existing articles or moving new/old articles to userspace. All deletions are logged as you know" Encyclopedia Dramatica:Your role as an ED Sysop

  • [9:41 PM] xanjr: However, it's allright. Pages can be deleted, it's no problem. The real deal started after that.
  • [9:41 PM] xanjr: He and I started messaging each other about whether the article should be deleted or not.
  • [9:42 PM] xanjr: He vandalized my userpage, then his friend User:MJ2.0 joined the party for no reason and also vandalized my userpage.
  • [9:42 PM] xanjr: It's okay it's just for fun.
  • [9:45 PM] xanjr: But later my friend User:Baykuşreyiz and I were talking on Talk:Turkey. I said in Turkish, two of those admins were being dishonest; I never cursed anyone.
  • [9:45 PM] xanjr: Creative_Username saw this and got angry and banned me. Ban reason: "siktir git ve öl" (fuck off and die in Turkish)
  • [9:52 PM] xanjr: He's also human and has to deal with a lot of trolls.
  • [9:52 PM] xanjr: and bots
  • [9:54 PM] xanjr: However I think the situation is being unjust.
  • [9:55 PM] xanjr: I'd be happy if you were to become an arbiter between our dispute. :relaxed:
  • [9:55 PM] xanjr: Thanks bro
  • [9:58 PM] xanjr: btw: I created a pseudosockpuppet User:Greetings and tried to communicate with User:Yellowbird (User_talk%3AYellowbird&type=revision&diff=1175802&oldid=1174066)
  • [10:00 PM] xanjr: but again Creative_Username and MJ2.0 came and insulted me on other User's page. He also deleted half of 'Turkey' article because of anger.

In short, user:xanjr is concerned about the circumstances of his ban and the repercussions of such to the articles Turkey and Mustafa Kemal Atatürk. He names user:Creative Username and user:MJ2.0 as the parties involved in the alleged misconduct.

Let the Internet court hearing begin!

You submit what? Are you okay? Write legible sentences. ED is not your father's backyard, so read these:
   
 
Sysop can be removed for several reasons, most often by the decision of one of the bureaucrats, or a community agreement. (...)

Don't go on a deletion spree. Don't be a fuckwit. Don't go on long wikibreaks. Always remember that AE > RL..
 


 
 

Encyclopedia Dramatica:Administrators#Removal of Sysop Powers

   
 
Sysops should protect pages only when absolutely necessary. Vandalism and excessive edit warring are common reasons for protecting pages. There are three options to choose from on the protect interface when protecting a page: autoconfirmed, sysop, and cascading.
 

 
 

Encyclopedia_Dramatica:Administrators#Protect

   
 
Sysops ban users only when absolutely necessary. (...) 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 (ban reason: siktir git ve öl)
 

 
 

Encyclopedia_Dramatica:Administrators#Banning

   
 
Image deletion, due to MediaWiki, is permanent; thus, only delete images if they contain illegal content, such as dox, child pornography, and real-life bestiality. (Removed Atatürk file. Remove reason: lol, gone)
 

 
 

Encyclopedia_Dramatica:Administrators#Deletion

   
 
The only articles subject for immediate deletion are shitty attack articles against staff (don't confuse satire with a shitty attack article), spam/advertisements, unbridled shit posts (usually under 3 sentences and never touched again), revenge porn posts, and anything else included in the ED is not page.
  • New articles bearing a potential subject that are barely touched WIPs are placed in Bad New Articles in hopes that someone will pick them up and turn them around. Add either {stub} or {crapstub} to these article as well so they end up in those categories.

(...)

  • New articles that read like they were written by an illiterate Uncyclopedian or an angsty 13-year-old should get templates such as {cleanup} or {13yearolds} instead of a deathnotice to let people know they need grammar markups or wikified links. There's also the {pixplz} and {needsmoar} templates for articles lacking in media, photos, and categories.
  • (...) Articles don't have to be started in user space, that's optional.
  • TL;DR:The goal of ED is to add content, not delete it, so if you're an admin who's removing content on the sole premise that you don't like it or you personally think it's shit, then you're doing it wrong.

Thus dear consuls of S.P.Q.R: I hereby demand that: 1) Removal of edit protection from my userpage. 2) Removal of edit protection from Mustafa Kemal Atatürk page (there are fuckton of political nobodies' pages on ED, why are you offended by our glourious leader?) 3) Revert this C.U.'s reversion of Turkey page because I'm not the only one editing it, he wastes a lot of peoples' work. (See: South Ossetia article; why is there even a page like that?)

That is correct, I will not return. I'm here just to spite you two, especially you MSG. That CUnt and I had a beef, but you (out of fucking nowhere) got butthurt automatically and started to attack like a dog for no fucking reason. We have a proverb: iki kişi konuşurken üçüncüye bok yemek düşer (en: when two people are talking the third one deserves shit). I'll try to change one or two things, other than that, I'm gone. Bureaucrats (BEWARE), you give away authority to a bunch of riffraff kids who think they are funny in return of being free janitor of spambots. No wonder this shitty wiki is dying DEAD. User:Baykuşreyiz also left because of your shenanigans. I suppose a large group of users left this website in the past because of childish admin riffraff. Whatever I said is still valid. BTW it's really fucking swell to see bureaucrats do nothing when kids who are made admin are acting spoiled.
Why the fuck did you wrote ED Policy page if you are not going to make everyone obey the rules?. I know the answer. Because bureaucrats are having a difficulty to find downright schmucks who would voluntarily janitor against Indian spambots in a dead wiki for FREE. If bureaucrats supported me, these two CUnts would quit ED and nobody would be schmuck enough to moderate for free. So, hear me out CUnt and MSG. You are rare schmucks, useful idiots, who has a lot of free time, that these bureaucrats see you as a gold mine. If you two were to leave, they wouldn't find two free idiots who would work for them FREE. Anyways, I can understand there are one or two bad apples. However, if bureaucrats are going to ignore these two being brats, then whole website is corrupt AF. In histroy, every empire fell because their system got corrupt and injustice ran rampant.

Splash pics

Not sure what else you'd call them. Sticking a big pic at the very top of an article, above the intro, so it is the very first thing a reader sees.

Occasionally (as with the flashing swastika at the top of the "Nazi" article) this is worth doing, to scare office-workers secretly browsing ED.

But 99% of the time, it's not worth it, and it's just some no-mark hogging up pagespace because they think they've found something incredible and unmissable.

I am against these things, and will be cracking down on them. Which is boring in practice, because it just means I'll be moving the pics to one side of the intro paragraph. I encourage all right-thinking staff to do likewise, if they can be fucking bothered, and if they can't then who could possibly blame them?

  • It has something to do with search engines blacklisting us because of adult content. Otter Whiskers OtterWhiskersIcon.png signed on: 20:07, 18 July 2019 (UTC)
AFAIR tits and dong have always been verboten for POTN. • MJ2.0 (Talk) 00:40, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
So a floating corpse of a child who drowned to death is SFW in the Otter's world? How insightful. Wtfperv sig 2.pngWtfperv unfucked.pngWtfperv isis flag modified.png 22:28, 18 July 2019 (UTC)
That image was literally plastered all over the fucking fake news media for weeks. Apparently it's safe enough for them. — GirlOnInternet SquiglySmall.png 23:43, 18 July 2019 (UTC)
I think that you (Wtfperv) are making an inductive mistake: material that will be entertaining to adults isn't the same as *ahem* "Adult entertainment" (meaning porn, meaning NSFW). If a hot woman in a bikini is NSFW in your eyes, then you are one exceptionally fragile Mormon.
I would also like to point out to staff in general that the person responsible for today's POTNSFW really ought to know better, since he claims on his userpage to have been active on ED for 5 years and 10 months, which is certainly long enough to have absorbed the relevant POTN rule. However, that person's userpage claim is not true, as a check of his earliest contribs will prove.
Draw your own conclusions about why someone would want to make themselves seem well-established and yet fuck the mainpage up as often as he does.
