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.

  • 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.

SysOp & Editor Tasks
Article:   Quote:   Picture:   Video:
Banplz: 1
Broken redirects Double redirects


Editors are able to move and edit protected pages. They are expected to help maintain the Main Page. If you're a recently promoted editor and are unsure about something, ask for assistance. Don't be afraid of making mistakes.

  • Check to make sure all the XOTN are set for the Main Page
  • Review NewFiles for content that violates ED Policy. Editors can tag content with {{delete}}.


Administrators have all of the Editor tools, along with the ability to delete pages, edit the user interface, and ræp users. If you have any questions about anything on ED, talk to them. They're here to help you.

  • Also, all of the Editor tasks apply to you as well.

TJC Archives



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)

Current Tasks

Feel free to pitch in any work we need done. We mainly need maintenance on XOTNs and the new portals, along with detailing any current shitstorms going on.

  1. As always, staff, please set XOTNs. Always ensure the next 3 days are set.
  2. Build up the Politics portal
  3. We need to have miniflag icons uploaded for every country possible, mainly for High Score.

"Copyright troll"

What's all this about then? Obviously you don't want to play your hand here, but some details about the alleged infringement could be helpful. Sidecar 13:21, 21 May 2017 (EDT)

If you want to do this on the cheap, you could always ask this guy if he knows of any paralegals who can look at your case and prepare some documents for you to file pro se. They wouldn't be your lawyers and therefore wouldn't be able to represent you in the courtroom, but that wouldn't matter, if filing those pleadings would get your case thrown out before it even got to that stage. Hopwood used to run such an outfit himself (not sure if he still does). Da bulls 19:44, 21 May 2017 (EDT)

Here's more infos on Kiwifarms about the guy in question. --Sd-100 16:03, 24 May 2017 (EDT)

Here is some info from our forum: https://forum.encyclopediadramatica.rs/threads/ed-is-being-sued-we-need-your-help.28864/ --Mantequilla (talk) Mantequilla.png 08:45, 25 May 2017 (EDT)

Smh I doubt this "lawsuit" will go anywhere. And as far as copyright laws go, isn't ED hosted in Sweden, or somewhere, that doesn't recognize U.S. copyright law? This just seems like another petty effort to take down ED. Pretty soon, Jonathan will get so desperate, he'll try to get his fellow Kiwis to DDOS us. Heat Sink HeatsinkSignature.png 15:36, 26 May 2017 (EDT)
  • Yeah it'll probably be thrown out of the courtroom but ED still needs the money to get a lawyer or we lose by default (I think, I'm not too sure). SCHNITZEL RADDA RADDASchnitzel2.jpg 17:36, 26 May 2017 (EDT)
I'm not going to comment on the legalities of the issue, mainly because I'm not a lawyer . I'll observe that international copyright laws were harmonised by the Berne Convention, which is worth looking up. Anyways, I have given you some gold, even though you break my poor mother's heart. Will chip in more if and when I am able, even though - $50k? Where did you get that quote?? Sidecar 15:27, 30 May 2017 (EDT)
This guy isn't a copyright attorney. Doesn't fuckin' matter. Google the fucker. [1]—  VX  20:14, 30 May 2017 (EDT)
Got the quote from our lawyer. He is a thousand dollar an hour attorney and he thinks it will take about 80 hours since the other guy has a very expensive lawyer as well, that is a discount. --Mantequilla (talk) Mantequilla.png 05:48, 1 June 2017 (EDT)
It's not really a question of "the lawyer makes this much" or "the lawyer is paid this much". The point is when you're counter suing you want as much money as possible and, obviously, so does the lawyer. So if the lawyer says they get paid $1,000 an hour and it's going to take at least 80 hours of work, that basically translates to: "We're counter-suing for $80,000 in legal expenses."
If the lawyer said they were doing it for free or that they got paid minimum wage, then there would be no justifiable reason to counter-sue for lots of money in legal expenses.
That said, you didn't technically need a lawyer. This guy has done this before and lost. So all you had to do was look up the old cases where he lost and just copy and paste their shit nearly verbatim and you would have won. The point of having a lawyer though, in this case, is to try and inflict as much potential and possible legal damage to ensure the fuckstick doesn't ever do it again. Because that's just the way certain mallet heads are, they just don't learn unless they're financially crippled in the process. --Mimkrys 06:59, 1 June 2017 (EDT)

It's sure nice to have a fresh, new install of MediaWiki! Heat Sink HeatsinkSignature.png 20:22, 1 June 2017 (EDT)

  • I'm guessing the bots are down. Also aren't we a few years late on an update? SCHNITZEL RADDA RADDASchnitzel2.jpg 20:54, 1 June 2017 (EDT)

Lots of broken thumbnails and youtube tags not working on older pages. Uberfukken (talk) 20:57, 1 June 2017 (EDT)

Error creating thumbnail: File missing

And the site layout is different... i.e. "blocked" instead of "raeped" in the block log in rc. Heat Sink HeatsinkSignature.png 21:07, 1 June 2017 (EDT)

Feels different. Yet nothing of value was lost ••General Niggerson Page me. 21:19, 1 June 2017 (EDT)
Earnestly agree. It's 2017, and only now are we using the latest, far superior version of mediawiki. Heat Sink HeatsinkSignature.png 21:42, 1 June 2017 (EDT)

A lot of the templates are broken, the gallery expansion being the most important. The Photoframe one is broken too. No signature button when editing it seems... guess you have to put it in manually? Or does it do it automatically? --Mimkrys (talk) 21:42, 1 June 2017 (EDT)

The YouTube tag does not work with a center tag, but it works without. Cobalt Cat.jpg CobaltCat 03:46, 2 June 2017 (EDT)

Am so impressed, am preparing lots of powerhorse to re-edit those pages I added syntax to em videos. Honestly the site is now super-epic slow, sometimes is giving me cloud at host is down & seriously whose idea was it to upgrade? I can't even go to Preferences without waiting for 5 minutes followed by nothing happening when I click Appearance or Recent Changes... geez even this text am writing right now is out of context -LIOD

That is because we are working on the server. --Mantequilla (talk) Mantequilla.png 06:47, 2 June 2017 (EDT)

Thumbnails fixed and youtube resolved, the only issue I see now is the hide/collapse on various templates (series, galleries) getting borked. I'm not sure if that's an extension or just really crafty wiki markup. Uberfukken (talk) 09:59, 2 June 2017 (EDT)

MediaWiki updated these items. [2] At the moment I don't know what the best solution is. Barth (talk) 10:14, 2 June 2017 (EDT)
Well that's not too bad, looks like they just changed the syntax. Probably an easy fix after it's been done once. I'll have some time this weekend so if nobody figures it out by tomorrow I'll take a crack at it. Uberfukken (talk) 10:21, 2 June 2017 (EDT)
It can be done. --JuniusThaddeus (talk) 11:48, 2 June 2017 (EDT)
videoframe, photoframe etc aren't working. Photoframe has gotten an upgrade in the form of gallery mode slideshow. which is better than photoframe. But if we fix photoframe, textframe and videoframe will be easy to fix as well. Wat do? Cobalt Cat.jpg CobaltCat 07:20, 3 June 2017 (EDT)

@User:JuniusThaddeus I just put <img src="https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/5/5d/Crystal_Clear_action_run.png/40px-Crystal_Clear_action_run.png"> into User:Wnt/sandbox2, and it displays there without processing the img tag. But {{#widget:User:Wnt/sandbox2}} displays the graphic fine. Now, for most of the really fun stuff I'd like to try, I'd have to enable scripts to test it, and you know I don't enable scripts for this site, I mean, it's too pretty not to use a condom. But I'm thinking there's much fun to be had, if you don't mind taking a little AZT afterwards. Wnt (talk) 22:06, 10 June 2017 (EDT)


Good work on upgrading the MediaWiki software. As is obvious, there are a lot of bugs and broken scripts we need to fix. Please add in suggestions below.

Main Page

I rewrote that Main Page so that users with small screens don't have to scroll horizontally. Please report any problem so that we can look into them. --JuniusThaddeus (talk) 14:03, 3 June 2017 (EDT)

Search suggestions (resolved)

Problem: auto-search isn't working (as in when you search something on the site and it brings up pages)

autosuggest works fine for me. -hipcrime Emote Pop tart cat.gif 17:48, 2 June 2017 (EDT)
Its working for me now. Its just within a day of the upgrade that it seemed bugged. -Swasikasig.jpg (Al Gore) 06:11, 3 June 2017 (EDT)


Problem: the sites format looks bad when not viewed in full-screen

Hide the sidebar in mobile. Takes up half the screen. Uberfukken (talk) 10:04, 2 June 2017 (EDT)

YouTube / Video Galleries

Problem: youtube autoplays, galleries, etc are all fucked up

I rewrote the "videoframe" template. It should work now. --JuniusThaddeus (talk) 23:54, 12 June 2017 (EDT)

Photo Galleries

Fixed. --JuniusThaddeus (talk) 23:23, 2 June 2017 (EDT)

Some galleries have two expand buttons where one doesn't work. --Killerratte (talk) 10:06, 5 June 2017 (EDT)

Page views (won't fix)

Info non-talk.png RIP 35,000,000 main page views

Problem: not showing

  • Page views and related features such as Most Viewed Pages were removed in MediaWiki 1.25 [3]. Page views were removed because they aren't reliable but some information is better than nothing. There is an extension but I'm really iffy about it. Marking as won't fix for now. Barth (talk) 09:28, 2 June 2017 (EDT)
  • this extension will restore the counts (unless we are upgraded to MW 1.26 or soemthing) -hipcrime Emote Pop tart cat.gif 17:38, 2 June 2017 (EDT)
ps: Special:PopularPages no longer works. -hipcrime Emote Pop tart cat.gif 18:23, 2 June 2017 (EDT)
Currently it is only possible to migrate wikis using MW 1.25 to use this extension. A fresh install in MW 1.26 and higher is not possible! Attention: If you do not act according to the following instructions, an update to MediaWiki 1.26 or newer can permanently delete your hitcounter numbers! See task T120216.


I don't trust this extension, the warning above is a red flag, this issue should have been resolved long ago. This extension was last updated 2015-11-24. PopularPages was also removed by MediaWiki. Barth (talk) 16:04, 6 June 2017 (EDT)

      • I've wrote a new morphquote script. The Morphquote template should work again. --JuniusThaddeus (talk) 20:41, 12 June 2017 (EDT)
        • I found the new template worked but with examples of very long quotes the template needs a height adjustment. For example on the Tony Abbott page the template worked fine in the past but after the changes some lines of texts were placed over the top of each other a height change fixed it. I don't know if there are other uses of the template with this issue, but I imagine its a case of people fixing it as they find it, so no biggy. —Oblique (chats) 01:52, 13 June 2017 (EDT)
          • The overlapping is from people setting a strict "height" instead of using the more forgiving "min-height": [4], [5]. I've changed the examples used on the template page so that people copying the examples found there use "min-height" instead of "height". --JuniusThaddeus (talk) 09:59, 13 June 2017 (EDT)

  4. the 'side-by-side' wikitext/preview/changes option (like Free Uncyc has/had).

Please! plaster CC-BY notices on EVERYTHING

If some copyright troll manages to win out by virtue of US law being designed to screw the poor, he's going to try to get copyright over the entire contents of ED, or whatever he can. Now to be sure, the site's current approach is, at least in part, to say that it's hosted in Ukraine which "doesn't recognize copyright law on the internet", and that's great, but the problem is, I'm not sure it's true, since I'm reading that the ED servers are really in the U.S., probably in the shadow of some FBI building like every other goddamned server on the entire "free, distributed Internet", I mean, you could drop one small North Korean nuke on Reston, VA and there would literally be nothing left on the Interwebs except a couple of old goatse pictures and Make.Money.Fast letters on some Windows 95 systems nobody remembered to update. But I digress, point is:

PLEASE, put CC-BY notices on EVERY SINGLE PAGE NOW. Then if (when) some court decides to hand over your rights to some fuckhead or other, the resurrectors can at least try to claim they have a right to copy the content. Not that that really works because they're poor and whoever doing the stealing will be rich, but it might faze the bastards a minute. I don't want them claiming that this page or that page wasn't public, hence is now their private fucking property; if something doesn't turn out to be fully released anyway, at least that stays with its "owner" and not with THEM. We didn't make all our glorious edits to have them be some dipshits' hood ornament. Remember -- this is an age of lords and serfs, so nobody worth speaking of owns anything that isn't free for everyone. Wnt (talk) 21:43, 10 June 2017 (EDT)

I can personally assure you that ED is not hosted in the US and its servers are not subject to Anglo style copyright law. In fact, the law of the land does not and cannot provide for the scenario you put forward. —  VX  22:05, 10 June 2017 (EDT)

User:VX Here's a recent case: [7] Someone filed a nasty review in Ripoff Report about a company. So the company sued the poster and got a judgment against him that found the post "false and defamatory" and assigned copyright to the company. They then tried to make Ripoff Report take it down, but that site refused; they claimed they had the copyright, but the court said the CC-license was irrevocable. I remember reading about a case where the suer didn't even find the original poster and got a default judgment without speaking to him at all - I don't remember if this was the one though. But it could have happened that way. I mean, when courts do default judgments, it's all a bunch of lawyers who know each other standing around talking and laughing and making plans for liquid lunch afterward, the only thing missing is anyone who gives a shit about the defendant.

Speak for yourself, Wnt, you TOW free-licensing whore. Everyone i know modifies any pic they post so they aren't exact copies and claims fair use. Go back to Commons and suck Russavia's cock. Vigilant's Vagoo (talk) 22:11, 11 June 2017 (EDT)

Some of you don't seem to understand how copyright registration works. The copyright office... the whole thing... it only exists because the constitution specifically says that it should exist. Meaning it does not actually serve any viable point or purpose and is in fact, largely, a joke. If you actually e-mail the US copyright office they will actually explain to you, at length, exactly how pointless and stupid they really are. Here's a couple fun excerpts...

Copyright Registration Is Literally Pointless.png

The gist of it being that ANYONE can file a copyright claim with the US Copyright Office, even if you don't specifically own the copyright in question, you can register for anyone else, including yourself, even if you have no right to it and they will:

A. Not actually bother to check, at all, to see if you really are the owner or are even authorized by the owner to make the claim.

B. Not actually bother to check and see if an IDENTICAL copyright claim has already been made.

C. Will not do ANY fact checking, research or otherwise to even remotely determine the potential validity of any such claim entered into their database.

They openly and admittedly serve no quantifiable purpose whatsoever. They are literally keeping an arbitrary database of completely unsubstantiated, completely unverified claims/data which are constantly and continually abused in courts. The US copyright office is effectively a small child scribbling incoherently all over the walls expecting mommy Justice Department to continually clean up their messes. At best they're a waste of tax payer dollars, at worst they're a complex government level form of money laundering being rampantly abused at the expense of the American public. In short... they should not exist, they have no reasonable purpose or function whatsoever and, worst of all, they openly admit to this fact and operate under the delusion that it's somehow "normal" or "acceptable" simply because there's some random, most likely misinterpreted text in the Constitution.

You scribbling shit all over that idiot wall isn't going to serve any point because every single person on the face of the planet could all register THE EXACT SAME CONTENT and that idiot department won't even blink in the face of it. As far as they're concerned every piece of material ever produced, ever, could all be claimed by every person on the planet and they would not even give one fuck all in any direction.

TL;DR - Copyright registration serves no purpose other than to be used as a arbitrary, unsubstantiated, numerical point of reference when you're filing a lolsuit. It does not, in any way, hold ANY legal weight on its own. Period. --Mimkrys (talk) 00:29, 12 June 2017 (EDT)

Meta Settings

How do I edit meta settings on a page with the new mediawiki software? I want to rig google to put the Randy Robert Stair article at the top of the searches again to bring in some more views for ED. -Swasikasig.jpg (Al Gore) 19:09, 12 June 2017 (EDT)

If I recall, the extension we used was deprecated, buggy, not maintained, and more almost certainly removed entirely from this install, as it wasn't compatible with anything resembling a modern MW version. Pretty sure it was this one Mike the Great (talk) 23:30, 12 June 2017 (EDT)
That sucks. I was able to get a lot of projects to the top of google search through utilizing the meta settings properly. If anyone finds a decent meta addon that works or whatever the fuck pls get it installed ty -Swasikasig.jpg (Al Gore) 20:50, 12 June 2017 (EDT)
I will check it out. --Mantequilla (talk) Mantequilla.png 05:39, 13 June 2017 (EDT)
what about this one? --Mantequilla (talk) Mantequilla.png 05:44, 13 June 2017 (EDT)
That could work out. A lot of people think meta editing can be useless but it seemed to help me rig the fuck out of google to bring lots of our articles to the top. But I'm surprised those kikes haven't banned us from the search engine yet. It's not of the utmost priority but if one of you wanna go for that plugin go for it. -Swasikasig.jpg (Al Gore) 09:18, 13 June 2017 (EDT)
The Kraut kikes have banned ED, if I recall correctly. Cobalt Cat.jpg CobaltCat 09:26, 13 June 2017 (EDT)
They banned entire access to my YT channel from their country as well. Most germans I know have to use proxies to do anything online these days. -Swasikasig.jpg (Al Gore) 09:34, 13 June 2017 (EDT)

I'm sure glad millions in tax payer dollars are going to solve an imaginary problem affecting about .3% of the population... cause, ya know, that's exactly how a society should work! :D

Er, crumble, I mean... crumble, yes.

Next up let's put our ENTIRE national budget into restructuring the whole of society to better accommodate the specific and individual needs of some random dude name Trevor living in South Dakota... this will be a GOOD IDEA! --Mimkrys (talk) 22:21, 16 June 2017 (EDT)
