'''Encyclopædia Dramatica''' (now at '''EncyclopediaDramatica.rsse''', formerly at '''''', '''EncyclopediaDramatica.[*/http:/ com]''', '''EncyclopediaDramatica.[*/http:/ ch]''', '''EncyclopediaDramatica.[*/http:/ es]''', and '''EncyclopediaDramatica.[*/http:/ se]''') is a central catalog for organized reference pages about [[drama]], [[meme]]s, [[e-pal]]s and other interesting happenings on the [[Internets]], and is your tour guide for your journey across the Internets. ED is also the [[Final Solution|final]] arbiter of [[truth]] and human destiny, and can be used to settle any dispute, anywhere, [[evar]] and a [[wiki]]-[[encyclopedia]] that enjoys [[deep web]] [[Freedom|benefits]].
Encyclopedia Dramatica was killed for [[at least 100|at least 100]] minutes in April of 2011. Now it's all better because the enemies of the lulz were stopped and the horrific [[Hambeast|manwhale]] [[Girlvinyl]] was destroyed. Encyclopedia Dramatica was also killed for at least a month in [[2019]] due to some [[faggot]] not keeping any goddamn backups. [[User:Conradrock|Conrad Rockenhaus]] seems to have salvaged what was left of the old ED and put it back online.
Not to be confused with [[Dramapedia]], silly [[Not4chan|pedophiles]].
== What's with the '''æ'''? ==
[[Image:Aelogo_black_on_blue.png|thumb|right|120px|A very good character]]
The proper spelling of Encyclopædia Dramatica includes the little '''æ'''; however, those characters are not allowed to be registered in domain names, so we used the mundane spelling. Feel free to use alt+145, alt+0230, or alt+z (option+' on OS X) if you'd like to experience it. As '''æ''' is confusing and mysterious like ED itself, it became the mascot for the site. æ is also a normal character in the Danish, [[France|French]], Icelandic and Norwegian alphabets.
<s>No, it is not</s>. While there is a lot of material on ED that many find upsetting, the [[William Atchison|admins]] and users come from a variety of backgrounds. <s>These</s> Some people <s>all</s> understand [[satire]] and [[lulz]], even when the minority group they are a part of is targeted, <s>they</s> some know it was not a serious attack on them, and counter lulz to lulz the lulz are always an option.
The wiki takes a no-holds barred, nothing is sacred approach to everyone and everything, we create highly critical articles about everything [[interbutts|internet]] related, so as to make readers [[lol]] at its cruel, unforgiving and occasionally revealing qualities. Some [[EDiots]] don't purposefully set out to offend people, but the [[William Atchison|admins]] intend to make you <s>laugh</s> die in a high school bathroom in [[New Mexico]]. Some EDiots portray the ridiculousness of many ignorant views that infect the world in a [[lulzy]] manner, because when you laugh at the more harsher aspects of life, the world becomes a better place. Of course, according to [[Meepsheep's Law]] where irony is confused with sincerity, other [[User:AlGore|fucktards]] take it seriously because they are soulless [[ginger]]s and go on to actually [[murder]] two random people at a high school after taking [[gun]] selfies in front of their bunkbed bunk-bed in [[New Mexico]] and writing poems about how females are [[Srsly|"ten thousand kilometers away from my pee pee."]]
If you are part of a minority group and are [[offended]] by ED take note from [[Nigger|PCBIZNUSS]] in the below video and try to understand we stand for [[free speech]] however threatened you may feel by that. After all, without [[free speech]], no minority group would have ever received rights to begin with.
In an attempt to profit off the interest of [[NORP]]s without scaring them off with pictures of severed dicks and esoteric Internet nerd humor, WP80 was born. Whatport80 served as the work-safe alternative wiki to ED, meant to mirror the content of ED with sparkly graphics and sparing use of zingers all while trying to deny some of that sweet sweet traffic money to [[Know_Your_Meme|KYM]]. But WP80 sucked, was used only by three people, and nobody gave a shit. KYM still made a ton of cash.
Failing to stop the monetary hæmorrhaging, ED then introduced [[ClickBangPop]]. CBP was an ad network that exclusively dealed dealt in advertising on ED itself and offered more leniency in the types of advertising that would be allowed.
But then... That flopped. Everyone installed [[AdBlock|AdBlockPlus]] because they were sick of lag, pop-ups, pop-unders, re-directs, and seeing [[Hentai|Princess Peach's tits]] or women with [[dildo|flashlights]] in their anuses on the sidebar.

== The great struggle for at least 10 minutes at April 27, 2011 ==
On April 27, 2011 Encyclopedia Dramatica was killed for at least 10 minutes. Anons felt an indescribable amount of rage. But finally, the horrific manwhale Dehippo was brought to an end.

==How can I help?==
[[File:Special ed.jpg|thumb|[[You]] helping ED.]]
[[File:EDServersGottaGoFast.jpg|thumb|right|Our state of the art servers require alot of expensive maintenance.]]
*Consider [[Encyclopedia Dramatica:Donate|donating]] to the cause.
*[[MysteryBot]] doesn't exist here, so you can always we need help out by fixing broken redirects as they show up, or with keeping out vandals and other enemies of the lulz.
*Write up some [[Original Content|original content]]. Check out [[Encyclopedia_Dramatica:Help|this old nugget]] for some pointers.
*If you can't be bothered to do any of the above, at least pray to the ghost of '''[[OldDirtyBtard]]''' and thank him for his beyond-the-grave help in rescuing ED from the clutches of the prior fascist regime.
