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.


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.


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)

  • 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.
  • Ask questions at the Thizzlehat Junction Center.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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.

Pop up hell

Seriously, WTAF is going on here? It used to be that a few clicks into the site and these things would stop. Now (as of the last 24 hours) they continue throughout a site visit, and nearly every other page, more or less doubling the number of clicks needed (because each pop up browser cancels out the click you were trying to make). And instead of just one hostage-taking ad that tries to force you to download something, there are now about four of them ("Click 'add' to close this page" etc). Ad blocker doesn't stop them, and I have no idea what to do. They are making each visit into a frustrating and borderline-hostile experience. Any advice? Sidecar 21:58, 29 November 2016 (EST)

Basically, that would having to be like asking our readers to install a special script so they aren't bombardment on each click. Sounds implausible and a detriment to site traffic, IMO. - Zew0 23:18, 1 December 2016 (EST)

I think Mike has it right, here. If I were a naive first-time visitor one of those hijack ads would be enough to make it my last, and for me to warn others to stay away. A donation drive right now would be helpful even if it only reduced the need for readers to go through this never-ending ordeal. Buy a bit of breathing space. Work out what would suffice over the coming year, stick up a begging letter, and I'll toss in $20 with a smile. Do we know of any children in Africa, for example? Sidecar 11:02, 3 December 2016 (EST)

Or make a pop-up browser open every time that anyone clicks anywhere, telling readers in big flashing letters that if they hate pop up ads then they should donate in order to stop them.

How 2 COMPLETELY SHUT DOWN Any Amerikan University

1) Secure the services of an adept spammer. You're not going to be spamming (i.e. you are not going to be sending unsolicited commercial email) but it can't hurt to be careful.

2) Spam every professor and staff in the university with following email: "I heard XXX raped YYY". Embellish with details about where the party was. (if she's raped, it's a party by definition) Maybe have a bot string together the stories. Send reports with apparent return addresses suggesting names that google with the university.

3) By law, every university employee MUST REPORT all allegations, period. ("Title IX", this is not made up)

4) Keep records of all the emails sent.

5) Wait for it...

6) Shonuff, a rape happens, or at least, some girl says it happened.

7) Mail all the media: this rape was reported by ZZZZ in an email sent at XX:XX:XX on YY/YY/YY, and they did nothing about it!

8) lolz. Wnt 21:15, 4 December 2016 (EST)

None of these sock or spam accounts are Oliver Smith. I can confirm that he denies being any of these accounts, go and ask him yourselves on Kikifarms by private message. "Remember that anti-porn Oliver loves to reference pornstars in these names". That is EXACTLY why they are not him. Why would he discredit himself on purpose like this? He has campaigned against porn for years, that is one thing he would never change on. He wouldn't suddenly start creating names based on Peter North or Danny D. He also only has one IP address which is well known. He does not use open proxies to hide behind, even certain admins know this. In short none of these accounts are him. Go and ask him. You should not be pinning these accounts on him because you have no proof they are him. This is someone else having a laugh. Alan Shaw 21:07, 11 December 2016 (EST)

The US government will shut down ED as a "Russian propaganda" or "fake news site"

Both the House and Senate passed the "Countering Disinformation And Propaganda Act" because they were pissed that Donald Trump got elected. The law ends freedom of the press and freedom of speech in the USA. Obama will sign this before Trump gets inaugurated so Trump won't be able to block it. Any website or news source not pushing communist propaganda is declared a "Russian propaganda" and "fake news site". I'm really scared this will be the end of free speech and freedom of the press as we know it. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-12-10/senate-quietly-passes-countering-disinformation-and-propaganda-act https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Countering_Foreign_Propaganda_and_Disinformation_Act Yipes --FuckAlms 07:58, 12 December 2016 (EST)

@FuckAlms This is almost right, but I don't think you appreciate American politics. Fake news is not banned by people hurt by fake news, but by people who spread fake news. A businessman who doesn't have a hand in getting his industry banned wouldn't have any pull at all! So Trump buys the fake news, bans fake news, puts a bunch of random jesters in jail, apologizes that there are still workhouses full of russian trolls broadcasting on his behalf more than ever but what can he do, they're unextraditable/too expensive to prosecute/hard to track down and if you want something done you have to sign on to his constitutional amendment to put a monitoring chip in your head so fake news can be spotted when it happens. But lol fake news nuclear war could intervene. I mean shoot, most folks of any political persuasion would love to help Israel and Pakistan nuke each other but how can they help? Well if fake news can do it maybe even Trump will back off banning it. Wnt 14:45, 25 December 2016 (EST)

Business as unusual...

There were a couple of pieces in liberalefty UK twatrag The Guardian earlier this month that left me seriously suspicious that the author had not the faintest clue what she was talking about. You can read them for yourself here (Part I) and here (the sequel).

There's obviously an element of truth in some of it (even if she's embarrassingly behind the curve on gaming a search engine's results) but a lot of what she says looks like bullshit. The bit about the "Are Jews..." autocomplete - a few commenters have pointed out that this doesn't work for them, and I reckon it might be that 'filter bubble' thing backfiring on her. I don't have the technical know-how to explain what's wrong with her reasoning. Any thoughts on this from the cumputar geniuses of ED?

Yes, it has potential, even if it's only as a few pars to illustrate how keen libs are on censorship (by any other name) or how the alt-right are being blown up into huge internet bogeymen. That is, depending on whether the columnist is taking out her ass and whether the explanations are amusing.

TL;DR - is a granny journalist chatting nonsensical crap about the internet again? Sidecar 10:20, 26 December 2016 (EST)

it's disappointing that the msm has changed their minds about "rededicating" themselves to good journalism and instead will now return to business as usual tyvm. one of those articles uses the term 'post truth' which is certainly ironic considering that this new era could better be described as post-lies. if anyone was publishing fake news it was those six or seven media conglomerates, and at least NYT had a moment of self reflection, now retracted and edited from their apology letter. Godfrey Elfwick's tweet sorta says it all imo:

All these articles are defamatory, filled with lies and smears but since that doesn't bother ED since this wiki does not claim to be factual but satirical - i'm sure having 7 pages with "Oliver D. Smith" in the title does? At the very least you have to admit it is bizarre.Eerie Indiana 10:03, 29 December 2016 (EST)

I don't have a problem with someone creating a humorous/satirical article on me here. However 7 articles/pages with my name, filled with defamation? And Suarez has now started to stalk and harass my other family members on some of those links. Shouldn't another ED sysop clean up his mess? .Eerie Indiana 10:14, 29 December 2016 (EST)
There will be eight or nine soon, if you don't snap out of your weeks-long spazz attack. And 'stalked and harassed' by a wiki article? Really? Do you check it's not under your bed at night? No of course you don't, that would be insane wouldn't it. Anyway, why don't you write us a nice long reaction to the articles on you, and we might even give it its own page. Could you do, say, 1-2k words and some pics by the start of the New Year? I mean, no-one knows the subject like you do. Sidecar 10:54, 29 December 2016 (EST)

 :: "Stalked and harassed by a wiki article". Well, its not 1 article but 7; the same deranged ED sysop (Michaeldsuarez aka Juniusthaddeus) who wrote all of those (yes, its just one nutcase) has been stalking me across the web, creating others. He also created my defamatory Lolcow.wiki article: https://lolcow.wiki/wiki/Oliver_D._Smith (view the history log, only Michael edited that article), and that article is so filled with misinformation it cannot even get my date of birth correct. Suarez also posts on other forums to attack me such as at Wikipedia Sucks and Wikipediocracy. He appears on this Wikipedia criticism troll sites because he was perm-banned from Wikipedia in 2012. No surprise he was perm-blocked for harassing someone else. The only major wiki Michael hasn't been banned from is ED (he's also perm-banned from Rationalwiki and presumably others for the same stalking and harassement), that's why he posts here. Unfortunately the admin or owner of this site doesn't appear to be aware of what Suarez is doing. Personally I don't have a problem with most other ED sysops, who use his site for satire and politically incorrect humour. Michael however only uses this wiki to attack and defame people (view his edits and they're very different to other ED sysops.) I should point out Michael's stalking of me at Lolcow.wiki backfired and he got his own entry written about his obsessive and creepy internet behaviour: https://lolcow.wiki/wiki/Michael_D._Suarez. If I have to I'll just create a blogspot warning people about Suarez's malicious falsehoods about me. Suarez abuses google search results so if someone google my name they find absurd descriptions; I'll create a blog so my link comes up as a rebuttal. However of course I would prefer if other ED sysops see sense and remove his 7 articles on me. Michael needs to get a life and stop stalking and defaming people, that was not the purpose of this wiki.Eerie Indiana 11:42, 29 December 2016 (EST)
You're rewriting history. Nothing backfired. The Lolcow Wiki article on me was created over two months before the Lolcow Wiki article on you. As usual, you're flipping cause and effect. You fail to see yourself as the cause of what you experience; instead, you blame everyone else.
In addition, you're projecting. You're the one who wants to manipulate Google:
Also, rest assured that the owner of this site already knows all there is to know about me.

Defamatory article "Oliver D. Smith Brothers" was deleted, but then restored, then deleted, now bizarrely restored again by Lulzkiller. Regardless, I don't believe a word of what JuniusThaddeus says above that he deleted the article to "move on". JuniusThaddeus as recent as December 4th 2016 (so only a little over a month ago) posted "I've succeeded in luring Oliver back out of hiding" and was stalking me on another website; its actually me that has a life off the computer and Suarez admits he was trying to bring me back to engage his internet trolling and harassment of me, and now my family. The real reason JuniusThaddeus deleted the article was because he's a buffoon who confused my identity; he tried to correct the misinformation after months of denying he made mistakes by changing the article from Oliver D. Smith to Oliver D. Smith Brothers, but he finally realised everything he wrote about me is false - so he deleted it to salvage his reputation as an internet "documentarian" and "archivist" (his words). Regardless, the current "Oliver D. Smith Brothers" reads completely ridiculous and contains all of Suarez's lies and errors. Why Luzlkiller thinks it is some sort of victory for him this got restored, I don't know. Musaeus 13:31, 9 January 2017 (EST)

@Oliver: I did not involve your family; you and your brother involved yourselves in this. According to you, your twin is responsible for the several accounts previously attributed to you, so your brother was already involved, right from the start. First, you complain that your brother's accounts were being connected to you; now, you complain that your brother's existence is even acknowledged at all! In addition, no one would even consider the possibility of a brother if you did not keep saying, "It was my brother!"
Also, that "lured" comment was a joke; I come up with that right on the spot (there wasn't actually a plan) to please the audience (the Kiwi Farms crowd). I couldn't predict that you would appear, and frankly, I don't enjoy interacting with you. I'm not harassing you or your family; I created that article so that your victims (e.g. Rome Viharo) can learn about you (and your brother) in spite of you two constantly changing pseudonyms. That's why the article was on the informative side rather than the humorous side. You two believed that you could as you pleased you want without being caught and connected with your accounts. I wanted to change that; I wanted people to know that you (and your brother) were responsible for what you two do on RationalWiki, EgyptSearch, and elsewhere.
Finally, since the mistake in question was assuming that you and your identical twin were one and the same, I believe that you shouldn't consider the mistake to be outrageous at all, especially when you and your brother basically do the same thing (i.e. sockpuppetry and attacking people).
I deleted those articles because I no longer possess the energy for this. I just want some peace and quiet. You didn't show any sign of wanting to make peace, and the conflict didn't show any signs of abating on its own, so I decided to drop out. I wish that LulzKiller and the others could just let things be, but you've went out of the way to piss off so many people that it's out of my hands now. --JuniusThaddeus 16:56, 9 January 2017 (EST)
"AlanShaw" *cough* bullshit *cough* just asked me politely to remove that doxing from the ODSBros article. Since it was 100% a breach of policy from the word 'go' and since he was so reasonable about it, I've deleted that image. This shouldn't be controversial. Sidecar 21:56, 10 January 2017 (EST)

It might be publicly-accessible, but is it freely available (i.e., without registration) online? My understanding of the electoral roll in the UK is that you have to access it via services like 192.com or visit the local council offices. Therein lies the difference for our purposes. As for what ODS has been up to in the past, that's not relevant to this little local issue. Sidecar 12:39, 12 January 2017 (EST)

I honestly don't get why Oliver Smiths Ed article was recreated, it is best removed like your own entry Mikemikev.

But no, it's not publicly accessible on the internet or on any internet search engine. That's why you have no online link mikemikev. You are a paedophile Mikemikev now uploading baby pictures of the Smith family claiming they want a 'black dick' in their mouth. Thanks for showing your true colours. You are a very sick guy. It is not acceptable to be uploading pictures of children on this website claiming they want a dick in their mouth or innocent families addresses. Both these files should be deleted OliverSmithBrothers.jpg ‎ OliverDSmithAddress.png . You were banned from ED Mikemikev and your article was deleted, so what is your obsession with Oliver Smith? He is sick of this harassment. Can you not just move on and forget about him? It is 2017 now. You should not be doxing or uploading innocent photographs of children, you are a sick nasty person. Please delete the above files. Trancestate 12:45, 12 January 2017 (EST)‎

ED is not...
... a phone directory. (quote): Unless the subject of the article was ballsy enough to openly place their IRL address, phone numbers and other such information on the Internet without any attempts to hide it, we will not host said information on this site. If you want to release such information, please do it elsewhere. (/quote) I'm removing the dox image (again), as it is completely unjustifiable and -- in the final analysis -- not at all important to the article. But this is the last time I'm intervening, I'm nobody important and if people are determined to ignore the rules then I can't make them do otherwise.
"Dave 4" has shown that the results are visible on google. However, when you click the link to that information, you find that it is paywalled. So this is a borderline case and I'm calling it on the side of caution.

I don't trust a word of either Anglo or Mikemikev; why was the Mikemikev article also deleted?Egyptsearch dude 13:24, 12 January 2017 (EST)
I deleted the Mikemikev after I deleted the Smith article, since I didn't think that it would've been fair to delete the Smith while keeping the Mikemikev article. Since the Smith article has been restored, I've restored the Mikemikev article. Either both articles exist or neither article exists. --JuniusThaddeus 16:04, 12 January 2017 (EST)
@ JuniusThaddeus, I only said some accounts were my brothers, after you linked them to my IP address. I had no intention of mentioning my brothers at all, only after you obsessively spent many hours going through edits/accounts, linking to my IP address on Wikipedia and Rationalwiki. Prior to you making the IP links, I never even mentioned my brothers - I just denied owning those accounts because they aren't mine. It was you who got my family involved, furthermore you created these slanderous ED articles on us. Me and my brothers never harassed anyone at Wikipedia or Rationalwiki; you don't know what you're talking about. My brother investigates paranormal claims and primarily debunks them since most, if not all, are frauds, hence his edits are on ghost sightings, psychic powers, UFO's etc. I don't have any interest in this. Its strange you ignored what I kept telling you for so long - that I was not Dan Skeptic/Goblin Face because there is virtually a zero edit overlap with our Wikipedia accounts on articles; we both have very different interests and edited non-related articles. As for the huge amount of edits by my bothers accounts, he's actually paid as an investigator to research these claims and then writes up what he finds. He's never harassed anyone, and like me, you've smeared him. Did you ever bother to even read his Wikipedia or Rationalwiki edits? Probably not. You currently have a defamatory "the dots" article about him when he's nothing to do with the drama that went on here. Also, I "moved on" ages ago. Its Mikemikev who still sits and logs on Kiwi Farms. These "Oliver D. Smith" pages were only re-added because of Lulzkiller, who apparently didn't realise I deleted my blogspot on him ages ago. If you kept them deleted I wouldn't have even replied. A solution if you're not going to delete them is to not mention my brother and remove all the misinformation and libel. Nolos 09:25, 17 January 2017 (EST)
You didn't delete that blog "ages ago". The Google cache has a copy from January 5th. You only deleted it this month.
Also, I don't believe in things until I see them. You kept on insisting that I should that believe in thing that I can't see or verify for myself. I didn't find true evidence of your brother's evidence until recently. Your brother's existence is only obvious to you since you see him everyday; have you ever considered the point of view of someone who doesn't have that advantage?
Lastly, your brother was involved in harassment: [1], [2], "[…] However, this does not mean that I no longer think that the accounts I mentioned earlier were not created by you. I still do. […]". Your twin isn't as different from you as you like to believe. --JuniusThaddeus 18:18, 17 January 2017 (EST)


I think I have an idea which I think is fair in this case.

New rule created around dox/otherwise: "Anyone who sends death threats to any ED staff member is fair game."

I don't think Oliver gets a free pass when he's basically sent several of us death threats and threatened to find out where we live.

Vermin - A republic would make more sense (like we have here in the US), that is a representative democracy, meaning the more edits you make to the site, the more voting power you have. That in turn would also directly fuel editing and keeping the site up to date. It could be based on monthly editing rather than editing as a whole, meaning your sway would basically reset every month and you'd have to keep editing and creating articles in order keep your power (with certain limits). It could be based on article creation and unique page hits too, which in turn would also encourage people to post links to their articles off site to drum up traffic. Just an idea. --IdimmuXul 12:27, 2 January 2017 (EST)

Mantequilla - Partially this time. Like I can make new video/article/picture of the now pages, but then I can't update or edit the main "of the now" pages. I can't edit your talk page either (which is why I'm putting it here). Not sure what else isn't working now. It was working after you did whatever you did, but only for like an hour or so, not sure what happened. I don't think it's just me either, cause I've gotten messages/complaints on that ED FB page of mine where people have said they can't edit stuff on the site. Some people have been having problems too with the e-mail verification when creating a new account. I know it's not a spam issue too (where the verification is getting filed in a spam folder), it's like certain e-mail domains are being blocked right at the server, where it's just not sending them. --IdimmuXul 12:51, 2 January 2017 (EST)

So why did it work a couple hours ago but not now?

Message For Mantequilla

It's broken yet again, can't edit the main "of the now" pages, can't edit your talk page either (hence the reason I'm putting this here). I think whatever you keep doing to fix it, someone else comes along and undoes it shortly after (like that furry guy did)... either for the sake of spiting you or trying to spite me, I'm not sure.

Also, I created a compilation file of invective word artistry, which I tried adding to the Flame Wars page, to be used as a reference in the same capacity as Guy Macon's file (as a means of reference for creating more colorful articles), but that "Mike the Great" guy keeps removing it and saying it's "vanity crap", so I figured I'd ask you if it's okay to add it. I can change the name if it's going to be such a huge issue, it doesn't have to have my name on it, it could just be called "the insult file". I didn't think it'd be a butt wrenching pineapple just because it has my name on it, but... apparently for some it is. The point of it is to improve ED, not for any "vanity crap", I just used the exact same name as the file on my computer. --IdimmuXul 19:58, 3 January 2017 (EST)

Oh, forgot to mention, sometimes it's like it "forgets" that I'm logged in I guess, like I go onto a page and the "edit" tab is just... not there. Same with my other account, when you had it set at whatever it is that's higher than editor, when I'd click on an image page the "delete" tab wouldn't be there, but I think it was only doing it on older images, newer uploaded images still had the "delete" tab on them. Again though, not sure if that's just a problem on my end or a problem with the system. I've tried clearing my cache and such but it doesn't have any effect. The only thing I can think of on my end is maybe I've got too many windows/tabs open, but then again it seemed to be working fine the other day right after you fixed it. --IdimmuXul 20:09, 3 January 2017 (EST)

You couldn't edit my talkpage because it is locked. So you can edit normal pages now? --Mantequilla (talk) Mantequilla.png 20:15, 3 January 2017 (EST)
I've been using the same trick I used before, when you had the other account set at higher than editor, when I'd go to delete a duplicate file, the "delete" tab would often be missing, but if I clicked on the "history" tab for example, then the "delete" tab would suddenly be available. Same now with articles, if the "edit" tab is missing I can click on one of the other tabs and then it'll come back. Didn't have that problem though after you fixed it he other day. Like I said, it seems to sometimes "forget" that I'm logged in for some reason. --IdimmuXul 20:19, 3 January 2017 (EST)

Something else I forgot to mention, sometimes the little edit toolbar is also missing or it'll take a really, REALLY long time for it to show up, which is annoying because you can't put your .sig in with the push of a button. Oh and sometimes, randomly, discussion pages won't update when someone has edited them. Usually though you can hammer the refresh button on your browser and hold shift and it'll fix itself. Not with the tabs though, the only way around that is by clicking on like the "history" tab and then the edit/delete buttons will come back. --IdimmuXul 14:20, 6 January 2017 (EST)

Well the real Hipcrime is probably dead... maybe, or at least smart enough to never again openly release software that can be so easily abused. We're likely going to see a repeat of history here soon, with all the pseudo, play pretend AI that's been floating about and over hyped in the past year or so. Like with Tay (an ancient Alice/Eliza chat bot variant)... people are starting to take old bot software and giving it new life with nearly unlimited bandwidth and insane levels of processing power... it ain't gonna end well. Not that I'm one to talk I suppose, but at least I don't share my stuff with anyone (although partially because half of it belongs to Reaper). We should probably make an article though about the real Hipcrime, seeing as TOW already has one... which is odd because they don't even have an article on the Meow Wars.

We need YouTube ripping advice for tards

BLMKidnapping is great. Or rather, was great - two of three videos are already censored. I mean, why the fuck even bother writing the thing??? Streaming means one and only one thing, which is to say, some fuck ass rich guy sliding open the fly on his Armani trousers and hosing you down with his piss while, in an ecstasy of genuine religious faith, you yell thank You, thank You, without Your charity I wouldn't have anything to watch at all!!!

Now there's Dumb and Dumber, and there's Dumbest (the tards proudly making those selfies for the cops to show in court) and somewhere in between, there's our failure to rip every YouTube video on sight. But somewhere above that is Fred Phelps, who I remember was quite good at getting other folks' YouTube videos for his Westboro Baptist Church website. So I humbly suggest that ED go to him in a spirit of Christian humility, or some other uberhacker, and work up some advice and instructions or even a nice automated script for us to get the YouTube videos the fuck off YouTube before they censor the rest of them.

The problem here is that video sites like YouTube and major social media sites that support video like FaceBook are constantly being asshats, which means they constantly alter and obfuscate their naming, encoding and organizational conventions in order to muck up 3rd party downloaders.

This means individually created applications don't normally work very long (3 to 6 months on average) and only large scale commercial operations do consistently work (albeit with random downtime). Those commercial level setups though are reliant on fuckhead level spam though, meaning you so much as click on the wrong gawd damn pixel and yer whole stupid shit box is gonna be all jacked up malware.

Which basically equates to... n00bs shouldn't be archiving video off sites like that in the first place. And it doesn't do the n00bs any good to archive it either, because what are they gonna do with it? Reupload it? Yeah, that won't work. Unless you know how to edit the video in some capacity simply reuploading the video will just get it auto-rejected right off the bat. And if a n00b doesn't know how to download a fuckin video off YouTube they sure as shit aren't gonna know how to edit the thing.

The better idea is to have those of us who know what the hell we're doing auto-archiving every VotN. Same with adding videos to pages... archive them first and if you don't know how... just ask someone who does. That's the safer/better method for everyone... ask someone who knows what they're doing to archive them. It's also better that way because then all the video is in a few selected repositories rather than being scattered all the fuck over the place on a bunch of malware infected shit boxen.

What would be nice is if we could upload video directly to ED, but, well... that doesn't really work so great...

Old People - Driving - South Park.ogg

...in fact I think I'm the only one who even knows how to do that... and technically not even me now because I can't find the encoding notes I used.

tl;dr - advice for retards... don't, just don't.

PS - For people who do know what the fuck they're doing, you forgot to include a FB downloader. --IdimmuXul 09:45, 5 January 2017 (EST)

You are right, uploading to ED just doesn't work well. It is impossible. Thank fuck, you are the only one who knows how to do it. What would we do without you?
You are a god among us mere peasants. Your knowledge of internet and coding surpass us all. I feel humbled being in your presence, oh great one. Cobalt Cat.jpg CobaltCat 09:58, 5 January 2017 (EST)
Name someone else who has managed to upload working video to the site. Go ahead, I'll wait.
Thanks for getting the widget to work though... with MY video. --IdimmuXul 10:28, 5 January 2017 (EST)
There's plenty of YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter video rippers out there. Although with Twitter, all you have to do is view the video in mobile mode and it allows you to right-click and download it. As for the embedded video above, you simply converted it to ogg format, which is an uploadable format on this wiki. Some wikis allow you to upload mp4s to embed; this one, however, does not. Vermin-rat.jpg VERMIN  10:00, 5 January 2017 (EST)
I will look into how to do add mp4 uploading and embedding functionality. --Mantequilla (talk) Mantequilla.png 10:03, 5 January 2017 (EST)
And mayhaps increase the upload size of said elements, aye? For gay admins and other verified fags? Also webm instead of mp4? Cobalt Cat.jpg CobaltCat 10:05, 5 January 2017 (EST)
I will just say this. Mantequilla, if you're ever seeking another programmer/crat to assist with technical site stuff, I nominate Cobaltcat. He's long been my go-to guy for wiki-related/coding questions (along with our dearly departed weasel), and he's always stepping up to help out with issues and answer related questions from others even if they aren't directed at him. As an admin, he still writes his own articles and helps with writing others, and he supports ED outside of ED as well.
This is just a personal recommendation (if it's worth anything) because he appears to be very knowledgeable (even if he is super gay). Vermin-rat.jpg VERMIN  14:38, 6 January 2017 (EST)
Most of which won't handle live streaming video. For that you need a stream ripper, most of which cost money and the freeware ones either watermark or have other inherent restrictions (i.e. nagware). And, no, I didn't "simply convert it to ogg format"... that's not even a "thing". ogg is a CONTAINER, not a format. I ~think~ I used a severely outdated Sorenson codec to get it to work. I tried to upload another video awhile back, I think using either On 2's VP6 or 7 and it failed miserably. As I recall there were also a whole slew of other problems regarding restrictive bit rates and other encoding options. I think in total, back when I was actively testing it, I created somewhere around three dozen different permutations before I actually found the right mix of settings that would work (consistently) for the site. Oh, plus there's also the 2 MB file upload limit. If you think there's just some random setting to flip the extension from .ogg to .mp4 and it'll magically work... no, there isn't. I think MediaWiki uses its own built-in semi-proprietary video player (like the kind I used on my Flash sites), and it's a sloppy/outdated bastard to say the least bit (at least with this version). Simply put, I don't think it's possible unless you actually update the ENTIRE WikiMedia software... and last I heard, when you guys tried that, it didn't end so well. --IdimmuXul 10:28, 5 January 2017 (EST)
Scratch all that, it's only Theora's garbage that's all restrictive and retarded. Just add in .mp4 and .webm to the allowed extensions list and then no one will have to even bother trying to get Theora's decade old, dilapidated garbage to work. --IdimmuXul 11:29, 5 January 2017 (EST)
  • OK this will probably get done when we do the migration. Until then you can give videos that youtube will ban/has banned to me to upload locally or you can use Google drive or something similar. --Mantequilla (talk) Mantequilla.png 14:53, 6 January 2017 (EST)
Uh... I'll just wait, cause that's a LOT of videos and most of them should probably be reencoded anyway so they're not so huge. The Acne article alone is missing more than half the videos I added. Not to mention all the missing videos on Joseph8276 and dozens of other pages. --IdimmuXul 15:12, 6 January 2017 (EST)


Bot isn't online, will be fixed tomorrow. Keep an eye out for new users to {{welcome}} and shit. --Mantequilla (talk) Mantequilla.png 14:14, 6 January 2017 (EST)

OK I unbanned him When you relaunch, make sure his recursive loop is fixed so he doesn't litter r/c by re-banning everybody banned since tablecow's drama Mike the Great (talk) 22:59, 6 January 2017 (EDT)
Disregard that, it's freaking the shit out still. Mike the Great (talk) 05:13, 7 January 2017 (EDT)
Yeah waiting on schnookums to fix it, just leave it banned. --Mantequilla (talk) Mantequilla.png 03:46, 7 January 2017 (EST)

Um, just a bit curious... WHY is there a bot for this? I mean... just make the welcome template a static part of any newly created user page. And it doesn't really need the banned template since 99.99% of everything banned is a stupid fuckin spam bot. I'm pretty gawd damn certain the remaining .01% of banned users can just be dealt with manually... in fact from what I've seen that's part of the imagined "joy" of being a mod; being able to drop trou and pile drive a ban-cock right into their user page. --IdimmuXul 09:16, 7 January 2017 (EST)

It also does the GNA/BNA/Trending etc --Mantequilla (talk) Mantequilla.png 12:59, 11 January 2017 (EST)

Ay it's doing the ban loop again. Mike the Great (talk) 02:28, 17 January 2017 (EDT)

Video Gallery Template Borked

Um... so at one point several years back I started making video galleries like this, with hard line breaks to make it easier to see/add videos...

Video Gallery Fucked.png

...apparently though now that doesn't work, the hard line breaks cause it to fuck up and only show the first video and then the rest don't show at all. So is there a way to fix the template to make it go back to the way it was working before or... uh... is there some semi-easy way to search the entire site for articles that have the broken version? Cause, seriously, I think I made it like that on at ~least~ several dozen different articles and then if anyone else copied and pasted from those articles into other articles... mmm... might be most of the video links on the site don't even function presently. ಠ_ಠ

--IdimmuXul 11:36, 7 January 2017 (EST)

No. It was when we updated the YouTube to use html5 instead of flash that the error occurred. The issue is that somewhere in that code something gets turned into display:inline or display:block, whatever, and it shouldn't. It can be easily fixed by adding some centertags around each line. Cobalt Cat.jpg CobaltCat 11:47, 7 January 2017 (EST)
Are you talking about the template or do you mean every instance where it was done with hard line breaks like that? If it's the later we still need some way to track down all the articles it was done that way. At best I can go through my own edit histories to try and find all the articles I've edited, but that's like dozens of different accounts and probably thousands of articles. I'm hoping you meant just the template itself needs updating, cause otherwise it's gonna be a pain to fix. --IdimmuXul 12:09, 7 January 2017 (EST)
The template and the updated extension does not work together, as somehow the extension overwrites the template's display. Cobalt Cat.jpg CobaltCat 12:17, 7 January 2017 (EST)
Yeah, cause of the hard line breaks. If you remove the line breaks and make it like this...
Removed Line Breaks.png
Then it magically works... but I'm wondering if there's some way to fix the template or the extension so that we don't manually have to do the above in every other article with a video gallery.
Forgot to mention, I am pretty certain it's a problem with the template, not the extension, because if it was the later then why didn't the image galleries break? The image galleries use hard line breaks in them, that's actually what I copied when I started making the video galleries with those line breaks (cause it was easier to see/update when videos would stop working and needed replaced or removed). --IdimmuXul 13:34, 7 January 2017 (EST)
Yes, as I said there is an issue where it displays incorrect. That's why you need to use center tags or break, because display goes inline, for some reason. It started when the YouTube extension was updated to html5. And since the vf was not touched. Cobalt Cat.jpg CobaltCat 14:01, 7 January 2017 (EST)
"It was when we updated the YouTube to use html5 instead of flash that the error occurred" - See, any world-class hacker and coder could have told you what your mistake was there. Sidecar 13:42, 9 January 2017 (EST)
