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.

Aw, is nobody updating these for you anymore? Why don't you have the members of your ED democracy step up and do it, since you give them the power to vote others out of being able to? Vermin-rat.jpg VERMIN  11:38, 2 January 2017 (EST)
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)

Broken Again

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)

Editor allows you to edit even if your account wasn't confirmed for whatever reason. you can't edit protected pages. what do you suggest we do about email verification? Schnookums Icon3.png reply 13:56, 2 January 2017 (EST)
So why did it work a couple hours ago but not now? Right after he fixed it I uploaded two PotNs and edited the PotN main page, but then like an hour or so later I was able to create a new VotN page (for the 4th), but then when I tried to edit/update the VotN main page it was blocked out. --IdimmuXul 14:07, 2 January 2017 (EST)

Don't listen to the weasel, he is a retard when it comes to the internet and computer. The issue is your local cache. What you need to do is delete the cache folder. It is probably quite big by now. It is located at c:\windows\system32. You need to delete that entire folder. Cobalt Cat.jpg CobaltCat 14:27, 2 January 2017 (EST)

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. Oh, speaking of that though, there was a recent article Vice did on the Meow Wars, in which they link to content on ED. --IdimmuXul 15:08, 4 January 2017 (EST)

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.

Download jdownloader2. Install it. Copy the youtube link. press download. You win. Cobalt Cat.jpg CobaltCat 08:11, 5 January 2017 (EST)
I am uploading the main 30 minute video to the wiki right now. As for downloading youtube videos, I use this plugin. Youtube downloading plugins are banned from the chrome store and that one works well, it places a download button right next to the subscribe button and gives you the option of file format. --Mantequilla (talk) Mantequilla.png 08:24, 5 January 2017 (EST)

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?

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)

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)

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

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.

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)

All ED staff: please read

"To the staff of Encyclopedia Dramatica,

I've reached my limit for the week. Almost everyone around me is having problems of one type or another, but there is one in particular that I want to bring to special mention: ThePirateCoveMan's Encyclopedia Dramatica page.

What the actual fuck is wrong with you people? Whenever I look at your page, I get the feeling most (if not all) of your members were born with no fucking sense of shame. There's nothing wrong with using the website as satire, but you constantly carry your 'jokes' too far, all the damn time. Not everything is a goddamn joke. Instead of making fun of people for having 'xyz illness(es)', or having something horrible happen to them, did it ever occur to you fuckers that helping them might be more important? Don't fuck around and say you can't; if you can afford to make a website bullying thousands of innocent people, you can damn well afford to find something better to do with your time.

You will all get what you deserve for being such unrepentant assholes. It won't be from me, it might not even be from ThePirateCoveMan, but eventually someone in a powerful position somewhere is going to get tired of your shit. When that happens, you can kiss your shitty website goodbye.


Long story short, someone wrote an ED article about some kid from DA who says he has several mental problems and pretends to turn into a werewolf, and the article was poking fun at it. His DA friend Glassen signed on, tried to blank the article several times, and implied that I deserve to be violently raped for reverting the vandalism because he can't take a joke being made about his friend.

I'm just making sure all of ED staff gets to read his important message so that it can sink in and cause a change in heart in all of us. Vermin rat.png VERMIN  22:07, 28 January 2017 (EST)

I should add, since we've shifted to critique, I quite liked what I've heard so far. It's a relaxing and straightforward listen and (which is the main thing) the people doing it are clearly enjoying themselves quite a bit, which is infectiously amusing for the listener. My only complaint -- and that's too strong a word, really -- would be that, with so few 'panelists', there should be more and shorter segments, as some of the segments lose momentum about 2/3 of the way through and attention begins to wander. (This could also be resolved by adding more panelists, so there was intenser input, but I'm presuming that there's a good reason this wasn't an option in the first place).

this president has produced more butthurt than Obama and Reagan combined. should we categorize the Trump articles, to allow for a summary or featured article series at the end of his term(s)? i have knocked together a list here of the obvious ones. feel free to add to the list. :) -hipcrime Emote Pop tart cat.gif 21:28, 2 February 2017 (EST)

You know all my sweet spots, man... my only suggests here are that the template pics are fixed so that the 'portrait' Trump is looking inward rather than outward. It would make better visual sense. Either the image itself could be flipped, or the two pics swapped over. (I'd like both images to be the same size and/or shape so they balance, but that's just my aspie gland twitching).

- something like this? Colors tie together better, streamlined, symmetrical, caption becomes much more directed at the reader, keeps the 'glowing eyes' motif, does away with the repeated use of the portrait pic (seen in the Donald article). Sidecar 20:14, 9 February 2017 (EST)

Personally, I'd make the background glittery gold and stick a big "T" logo or a "$" or something in the middle, because it would illustrate his generous and shining personality to a tee. I think the dark panel makes him look demonic rather than the Risen Redeemer that he really is. But I'll leave that to you to judge. Sidecar 12:27, 11 February 2017 (EST)

All three are great, but the first one is best because the images are not similar. - Zew0 12:55, 11 February 2017 (EST)
I like these ideas, Sidecar, but I'm not certain how I would implement them. If you have any further suggestions, I would like to see them. —  VX  21:16, 11 February 2017 (EST)
I agree with Zew0, having the same image on both sides makes it look less cool. The two separate glowing eyes photos on either side go together great and bring it in as an artistic template instead of a mirrored OCD banner. Vermin rat.png VERMIN  22:40, 11 February 2017 (EST)
I'm just a bit of a 'neat freak' about this sorta thing, and the unbalanced version of the template puts my teeth on edge. But even if you keep those pics, would you agree that the black backdrop is a bit too sinister-looking for a God-Emperor? I had in mind something like the two examples below as a backdrop - they are just cobbled-together wallpaper/clipart sketches, not even the right shape, but give an idea of what I'm thinking. Since the template seems to be a fixed-dimension job with only one link, rather than a 'stretchy' one, a rigid backdrop seems feasible. I don't have the graphics 5killz0rz to do it though.

Anyway, I'm butting out now and will leave it to wiser heads than mine.Sidecar 23:35, 11 February 2017 (EST)
I share Sidecar's tism in that symmetry = good. As for the whole demonic vs. angelic look, I originally intended it to be a bit sinister looking as a satirical send up of all the fearmongering we've been fed. I'm fine with either, however, just so long as it doesn't look like shit. —  VX  18:17, 13 February 2017 (EST)

I think we need some more portals. Particularly two. A politics portal. I know there is a template, but it is getting kinda bloated. I know it is somewhat covered in Truth, but, that also contains a lot of unnecessary shit. The second is a news portal. We have covered quite a lot of news media so far, and there isn't really a portal for them. They could come in under media portal, but then that shit would get bloated as well. I think that should be reserved for media, not the media. Cobalt Cat.jpg CobaltCat 06:10, 17 February 2017 (EST)

Sprots -- where ALL the women are men!

It's official: there is a new royal road to glittering gold. Incredibly, when boys and girls wrestle together, girls get humiliated, even when the boys are girls, because the boys are girls on steroids!

Now you can say that's just Texas, that in a progressive state we'd throw the "transboy" into the boy's team and the boy's locker room so they could show him what a little bitch (s)he really is. But there's the thing: sometimes people do discontinue trans ... therapy. This means that a girl can say she's a boy, legitimately take steroids for half a year, decide she doesn't wanna go through with it any more, go (back) on the girl's team, and plow through her opponents like an enraged East German.

There is no unfucking this. ;) Wnt 14:46, 26 February 2017 (EST)
