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.


Policy

Before making any contributions, be sure you have read over all of our policies. We will not hesitate to revert any idiotic edits and call you out for your stupidity.

Ways to Help


User Groups

See the User Group Rights page showing the rights of the users of each group. The group you're in dictates what your privileges are on ED.

Users

All are welcome, as long as you read and agree to the General disclaimer. The only real requirement is to create an emailconfirmed account to edit articles. ED doesn't support anonymous editing. (IP addresses)


General
  • Got a lulzworthy subject you feel needs to be written about? Submit it to the Needed/Proposed page and someone might pick it up. Make sure you check to see if there's already an article about the subject first.


Writing
  • Write an article. This is the best thing you can do for ED.
  • Check the Bad New Articles portal to see if there's anything that ought to be expanded or cleaned up.
  • Check the list of wanted articles. This is automatically generated when two or more pages contain links to a page that doesn't yet exist.


Front page


Images
  • Add images to articles, or upload better versions of wanted images. Make sure you give your image a detailed name instead of a bunch of symbols or numbers so search engines can actually find them and link to them easier.
  • Browse though unused images and files and find homes for them. Do not delete or put death notices on duplicate images, use the {{duplicate}} template instead.


Maintenance
  • Categorize articles. We have a list of existing categories and a list of uncategorized articles. To add an article to a category, click that page's edit link and at the bottom of the entry, type [[Category:'''(name of category)''']] and click "Save Page." Use the "Show Preview" button to make sure you typed a category that exists (red links mean you failed). Do not create new categories.
  • Rotate a Portal. Seriously, this would be highly appreciated. The goal is to have each one changed once every two weeks or so. Anyone can do this.


Request editor privileges

If you're interested in helping out further, request editor privs, assuming you've been around for a couple months or have otherwise proved yourself.

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.


Well, this will be fun.

Interface admin

May I please be added to the "interface admin" group? It's currently the only group with the "editsitecss" and "editsitejs" bits. Without it, I can't edit MediaWiki:Common.css or MediaWiki:Common.js. I wrote the current version of our collapsible elements, so I believe that I can be trusted to handle such pages. I also noticed that we now have the Gadgets extension installed. I would like to edit MediaWiki:Gadgets-definition, but I need to be an interface-admin in order to edit it. --JuniusThaddeus (talk) 18:20, 9 October 2019 (UTC)

.SE E-Mail

All Sysops and above are *REQUIRED* to have an encyclopediadramatica.se email account. The service is provided by Protonmail. If you already have Protonmail, you can use your ED.SE email in conjunction with this account. Please email me your username and aliases you wish to have associated with your account NLT 10/19/2019 or you'll be considered an inactive sysop. Send your choices with from the email address I need to send the invite to: [email protected] Thank you. Conradrock (talk) 08:31, 10 October 2019 (UTC)

I decided not to use protomail anymore as I figured out how to set our own emails at rest on our email server that's sitting in my hosted IP space, which will be cheaper. So, instead of using protonmail, just please email me at: [email protected] what your desired username will be. This also gives you shell access to the both data center's bridgeheads, which I want all admin users to have anyway. If you already sent me a request, I got it, just let me know if you want to change the "non-ed" email on file to associate with the account. Conradrock (talk) 10:02, 13 October 2019 (UTC)

URL construction

hi all, welcome back. our current plain URLs now have a /w/ in between https://encyclopediadramatica.se and the article name. i understand why it's there but if the old URL construction was used, it would re-light all those deadlinks. is it worth dropping the /w/ just to reactivate the old backlinks? -hipcrime Emote Pop tart cat.gif 02:40, 12 October 2019 (UTC)

Old URL design implemented. Conradrock (talk) 07:44, 12 October 2019 (UTC)

deleted or broken images

Just wondering what ED plans on doing with all the deleted or broken images on some articles. In many cases these aren't recoverable (they're not on web.archive.org/ or if they are they're too small and not the proper uploads). As an example most on Autistic Legion of Doom is deleted or broken images that cannot be recovered. Evil (talk) 03:37, 12 October 2019 (UTC)

I'm sorry, but what would you like ED to do about this situation? All of the data that was hosted on the previous server was lost, which is why a new crew of SysAdmins came on board to recover what we could find and ensure that proper backups would be performed at all times, including making sure we have one off site. Unfortunately, everything on the previous server was lost and if we can't recover it from the Internet, then it's lost forever. It's just how it is. It sucks and you can't always predict a RAID failure, but it would of been better to have a images backup from 2017, a database backup from 2017, and an articles dump from 2018. I'm not trying to troll about this, but there's absolutely nothing left we can do, now we're just working on getting things on this wiki back to normal and getting the forums operational. Conradrock (talk) 08:02, 12 October 2019 (UTC)
I was just curious. I removed some broken images on pages and made redirects, but was blocked for 1 week for no apparent reason. On the other hand, I can't say I'm disappointed about the permanent loss of stuff here since I've never much liked this site. But it looks like there's a lot of articles that are completely destroyed; traffic to this wiki is also very minimal and this place looks almost dead anyway.Evil2 (talk) 12:38, 12 October 2019 (UTC)
Was there a backup database for the forums or is that starting from new?Evil2 (talk) 12:44, 12 October 2019 (UTC)
  • If you do not care about ED, why are you here? Otter Whiskers OtterWhiskersIcon.png 12:55, 12 October 2019 (UTC)
I've had trolls create articles spreading all sorts of libel and deliberate misinformation about me here for years; ED refuses to remove this content. My only interest really was knowing what is/isn't being restored, so I know. If stuff reappears on search-engines I'll have to block it by sending legal complaints again to Bing, Google etc. About 75% of the "leaked emails" on Autistic Legion of Doom article were fakes filled with defamatory allegations about me including false claims of mental illness and a made up lie I had sent death threats or doxed someone. I'm obviously not disappointed to see these are deleted and most not recoverable.Evil3 (talk) 13:12, 12 October 2019 (UTC)
You do realize that coming here and announcing this you're going to make it someone's mission to try to dig this up, right? Conradrock (talk) 17:51, 12 October 2019 (UTC)
LOLiver fails again. Mikemikev1488 (talk) 18:30, 12 October 2019 (UTC)
@Conradrock, note my article was created by Mikemikev, so can ED just delete it? You allowed a mentally ill self-described neo-Nazi to write a tun of lies about me. I can easily be found on social media and nothing written about me on the article matches who I am at all.Evil4 (talk) 19:12, 13 October 2019 (UTC)

restorations

couple of things

  • is there a way to bring back articles from post 2017 that isn't just copy-pasting what's in the archive?
We have articles from Post 2017 that were recovered from an XML dump as well. Anything else that's missing will need to be copy pasted, basically scraped.
  • do we get upload wizard back?
Working on it, but this has to be the last extension, because I really need to work on EDF.
  • is vector.css disabled now? i tried using it but nothing happened
It shouldn't be. If it was, we would have major issues with the skin loading. I do have some aggressive defenses enabled on Cloudflare but you will see an actual "BLOCKED" page if you were being blocked.

$wgAllowUserCss is set to false by default. It needs to be changed to true in order for pages such as User:Schnitzel/vector.css to have any effect. --JuniusThaddeus (talk) 00:46, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
I set this to true, please try it now. Thanks. Conradrock (talk) 04:56, 13 October 2019 (UTC)

also, seeing the broken redirects and wanted pages list shows a lot of previously made articles that aren't there because they were made post 2017, but there are other articles (Bike Cuck, Einshine, Marjory Stoneman Douglas School Shooting, etc) that were also made after 2017 that had imported revisions, is this a thing that's only for some pages (meaning we'll have to restore the other pages manually), or can admins import revisions from previous articles too?

Mikemikev has for years threatened to also "take offline" RationalWiki for his article: https://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Michael_Coombs Has never happened, so his threats never materialise.

i propose that sysops be allowed to edit through an edit filter. i think i'm a sysop and was blocked from updating Daily Stormer's template. also how did dailystormer.name get on our edit filter? if we just used the Wikipedia package, then some URLs like DS and Kiwi Farms will need removed because we rely on those sites for some article proofs. -hipcrime Emote Pop tart cat.gif 21:17, 12 October 2019 (UTC)

Is there anyway ED will delete articles? This website seems to have no purpose aside from destroying people's lives by abusing Google/search-engine traffic to their names so deliberate harmful misinformation shows. ED has only been back online for a few days but multiple people here are already complaining about problematic content; this is also why you keep getting taken offline. If you just made funny satirical articles, no one would have a problem, but you've allowed internet crazies to misuse this site to create revenge articles that libel people.Evil4 (talk) 19:21, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
I'm familiar with Nate from 3 years back. I think he's since corrected his behaviour and Kiwis have left him alone, so if he's improved his behaviour, why still have an article that is causing him distress? Do none of you people have a conscience?Evil4 (talk) 19:28, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
LMAO you are both spergs. Autism fail. UnblockMikemikev (talk) 19:48, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
  • First of all, we do not abuse search engine traffic. Second, that so-called multiple people only include you and two other spergs - quite a number! Third, you do not know shit about why ED disappears for brief periods of time, and you have no real evidence regarding when and whether ED is taken down or not. Last but not least, the only "crazies" I see misusing ED are people like you. Have a nice day. Otter Whiskers OtterWhiskersIcon.png 23:33, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
How are you not abusing search engine traffic when you libel people as paedophiles, and many other things? My current name redirects to the paedophilia article, while my own article is filled with other defamatory made up claims and lies. I'm not a paedophile nor have ever written or said anything that can be construed as paedophilia. So how is calling or linking someone to paedophilia not abusing search engine traffic? You're literally insane sociopaths.Evil4 (talk) 00:16, 14 October 2019 (UTC)

SysOps, Please add RSA Public Keys to your User Pages

Hello- So I can add new accounts to the bridgeheads now and make adding accounts easier in the event of a possible future failure, please generate a RSA key pair (if you don't have one) for SSH authentication and place a copy of your public key (which usually ends with .pub and doesn't contain the text "PRIVATE KEY" on your UserPage. Please see my userpage or Lotic's page for examples. I would greatly appreciate it if this was completed as soon as possible. Thanks! Conradrock (talk) 22:42, 13 October 2019 (UTC)

EDF repairs, upgrades, and other software fuckery

EDF is up and running, but there are still some things needed to be put in order or re-introduced to get back to almost normal. Said shit includes, but is not limited to:

  • The use of media embeds like YouTube in thread posts and signatures Checkmark 2.gif
  • The ratings system Checkmark 2.gif
  • Staff re-arrangement Checkmark 2.gif
  • The various themes Endsenten was kind enough to make for us
  • the Shoutbox Checkmark 2.gif
  • banners
  • news threads on the front page
  • maybe add some new account identities, like Discord and Twitch

If any of these things have been fixed, or if they just don't work on a specific browser, post updates here. Yellowbird (talk) 04:18, 17 October 2019 (UTC)

Hey, it's zew0. Glad to see you back up and running. Mind if you approve my forum account and let me get to work here? Thanks a bunch. - Zew1 (talk) 03:42, 20 October 2019 (UTC)

Not forum staff, but you should check your email for the confirmation link. That's how I got in, anyway. Yellowbird (talk) 06:37, 20 October 2019 (UTC)

A quick recap

Just been surveying the situation. If I've got any of this wrong then please correct me.

What has happened is as follows:

  • ED was taken down for some kind of fancy non-crucial upgrade
  • Virtually nothing on the wiki was backed up beforehand
  • The so-called upgrade nearly destroyed ED for some reason
  • All work from 2017 onwards has been wiped, perhaps forever
  • Two months later, editors are scraping googlecached ED pages to salvage what they can
  • Somewhere, Sherrod DelGyppo is crying into her cream cakes due to uncontrollable laughter

Is that broadly accurate?

Next question. Who is/are to blame for this, if anyone, and how much responsibility do they bear (expressed as percentage/s)?
Sidecar (talk) 18:11, 23 October 2019 (UTC)
Mm. That explains part of it, some of which (the raid failure) seems to be sheer bad luck.
But whose decision was it, ultimately, to fix the site when it wasn't broken?
And who should have ensured that everything was backed up first, and ideally backed-up in duplicate? This is utterly basic internet. Two is one, and one is none.
You've had far more than your fair share of abuse and criticism, but imho any site supremo who fucked up this big should quit.
So this is my vote of no confidence. Sorry.

They did, Sibin is gone. Conradrock (talk) 21:30, 23 October 2019 (UTC)
Also, to clarify, I'm not sure where the hell the whole "site upgrade" thing is coming from, as Sibin wasn't upgrading anything at the time of the failure. The only reason why we're running the latest of things now with the backups we have is it was easier to install the latest versions of the software and import the data we could find, instead of going back several releases to the older software that version of the wiki that was being ran. That upgrade may be referring to specifically to the Forum software itself, as there's a huge difference between XF1 and XF2 we noticed during our import that we had to account for when we brought the forums back up.

CAPTCHA Won't Let Me Edit Article

So I'm trying to edit PragerU's article, and it presents me with a CAPTCHA when trying to save changes to it. It mentions that I put external links and they're trying to prevent spam, but when I complete the CAPTCHA and hit 'save changes,' it makes me do it all over again. Wat do?

Maintenance Note

This weekend we will be moving the servers from the emergency environment to the new permanent environment at the GreyPonyIT DataCenter. This should be a transparent process, other than ten minutes prior to cutover, editing the wiki will be disabled, just to make sure we have a final true and synced copy synced, then we will switch, which may result in a possible 1-2 minute connectivity loss to the end user, but not likely. When active maintenance is being performed, it will be announced in advance. Thanks everyone for getting us this far! Conradrock (talk) 12:27, 2 November 2019 (UTC)

Open Letter to Matthew

Otters had been neutral about you for almost the entirety of your stay on ED/F. Otters' stance changed, however, when it was revealed that you had been uploading borderline child pornography during your service as administrator - a privilege you could only acquire by bribing a drug addict. That alone would not have invited otter wrath upon you, since otters would have just disassociated with you. Rather, when you attacked the then-server administrator of ED is what caused otters to regard you as an enemy of ED. It is therefore shockingly hypocritical of you to offer to help with the restoration of ED. Do keep in mind that this endeavor will not earn you your undeserved privileges back.

More importantly, there is only one question otters wish answered. Why are you getting confrontational with otters? Otters are not the enemy of ED, nor are they the enemy of anybody as long as they are left alone. Informing other parties that you consider otters as your enemy is immature. Moreover, refusing to work with otters even before it has been established that you are allowed to work on ED or that you are welcome back on ED is rather pretentious. It goes back to your previous mentality that ED has ever needed you to keep itself operational. Otter Whiskers OtterWhiskersIcon.png 04:48, 4 November 2019 (UTC)

I have purged all of Onideus's contributions

Approximately 6,800 images spanning across a few hundred pages that were uploaded by Onideus have been removed from the wiki.

Why the 'bomb the desert into glass' style purge? About 5 percent of his uploads were related to diapers or children, often in a sexual nature. None of them in my opinion would count as outright child porn, but much of it is very borderline. Another 5 percent was lolicon. The other 90% can either be found on Know Your Meme or 9gag, and although I did not investigate the source of his images I wouldn't be surprised if he ripped the majority of them directly from either of those or similar sites.

Pages he started and was the majority editor of were also removed. With the exception of a few asinine topics like Bacon and Fidgit Spinners, most of them were hit pieces on nobodies in the furry or brony communities.

I learned a few things while doing this.
1) The backup missed a range of a few months worth of times between late 2016 and early 2017.
2) A lot of those images belonged to AlGore. Lmao, still getting pwnt from beyond the grave.
3) Conrad's 2018 XML dump brought a few articles back from the dead that probably need to be wiped clean of media. Examples: Fembusters / Donald Drumpf / David Raymond Amos

There's still a lot of articles with missing images. A lot of low-effort editing happened in the last year and that involves slapping in a bunch of dumb memes and smarky thumbnail commentary. I think the best thing to do at this point is just remove the missing image links from articles if you run into them. Uberfukken (talk) 02:27, 18 November 2019 (UTC)

If we could only purge Onideus from existence. I have an ancient backup from 2011 but not sure how many images are missing from that time. 02:30, 18 November 2019 (UTC)

Hypotheical Scenario

I wanna imagine a scenario where faggots were able to put the cum squeeze on ED, and hire teh lawyers to fuck ED over. So what happens in this world if ED actually shut down, along with *chans?

Explanation???

Why was User:Ceiling Cat on Wheels banned? He thought ED was a paradise of freedom, unlike the oppressive regime of TOW aka North Korea. He seeks only an explanation of why the block was executed. Ceiling Cat on more wheels (talk) 13:11, 18 November 2019 (UTC)

Just reapplied his block. This retard shit out nothing but autism and spammed up talk pages and made random sub pages full of incoherent rants about TOW and other bullshit on the previous version of ED. He proceeded to pull the exact same shit on this version. Probably has some form of mental illness but isn't interesting or lulzy enough for his own article. 02:32, 19 November 2019 (UTC)
