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.

STAFF SUGGESTS NEEDED ARTICLES

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)

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)

Use the NoScript pluggin. --Onideus File:Sig Rainbow Clouds.png 22:07, 29 November 2016 (EST)
I don't know if that's a reasonable option. I had to fight through four popups just to post this simple response. That seems very excessive. - Zew0 23:04, 1 December 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 personally believe that getting a base64 popup everytime I try to edit or even merely use the fucking scrollbar actually affects productivity. What the fuck? LKCustomSig.jpg (talk) 14:20, 2 December 2016 (EST)

So I wasn't the only one experiencing pop up issues after all. good to know. ••General Niggerson Page me. 20:31, 2 December 2016 (EST)
  • We switched ad companies, I am sure adblock will catch up soon enough. Google ads has us blocked so our options are limited. If you have any better ideas we are all ears. --Mantequilla (talk) Mantequilla.png 00:02, 3 December 2016 (EST)
How bad is it? - Zew0 00:14, 3 December 2016 (EST)
It's fine, if this is what's gonna keep the site alive, then I'll bear with it. ••General Niggerson Page me. 00:33, 3 December 2016 (EST)
be careful. if your ads are sustaining your site but deterring your userbase, you won't have a userbase for long, and then the ads won't even give money. It's a death spiral. Mike the Great (talk) 05:44, 3 December 2016 (EDT)
It is just a test run right now. We are still trying to figure it out. --Mantequilla (talk) Mantequilla.png 00:56, 3 December 2016 (EST)
these ads are fucking with ad block so it can't work. it is ridiculous. Schnookums Icon3.png reply 08:47, 3 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)
Yah its december here, whens the annual donation drive start?--Desu walk.gifTalk to me|Contribs 11:21, 3 December 2016 (EST)
but make sure the donation request takes up at least half the page like wikipedia's new one. Mike the Great (talk) 18:51, 3 December 2016 (EDT) 13:51, 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. This is a brilliant idea, even if I do say so myself, which I do. What could go wrong? Sidecar 13:59, 3 December 2016 (EST)
Just do this. Cobalt Cat.jpg CobaltCat 01:47, 13 December 2016 (EST)
  • They are turning down the frequency, give it a few hours. I told them to set it to just pop once per visit. Sorry about the hassle. --Mantequilla (talk) Mantequilla.png 07:06, 5 December 2016 (EST)
  • The ad company is working on it, I know it is slow and I apologize. They said they are having the tech guys figure out the problem when I talked to them this morning tho so hopefully it will be fixed soon. Thank you guys (and girls) for understanding. --Mantequilla (talk) Mantequilla.png 14:10, 6 December 2016 (EST)
I know who is getting coal in their stocking Schnookums Icon3.png reply 14:16, 6 December 2016 (EST)
  • I just talked to her again. She is putting in a report and the tech guys are going to call me again in the morning after they restart the system and figure out what the problem is. It will hopefully be fixed soon. We can completely cut out the popups soon hopefully if more people will donate. --Mantequilla (talk) Mantequilla.png 14:36, 6 December 2016 (EST)
I hate raw fish. Can I have a limerick instead? Sidecar 15:03, 6 December 2016 (EST)
  • Switched back to the old popups cuz they failed to fix it in what I consider a reasonable time. Sorry for that. --Mantequilla (talk) Mantequilla.png 14:34, 12 December 2016 (EST)
  • Thanks, both for trying and the reversion. Mike the Great (talk) 01:17, 13 December 2016 (EDT)

Anyone bitching about ads without donating regularly probably voted Bernie. Uberfukken 21:34, 12 December 2016 (EST)

monthly database backup

this user requests the sitemasters of encyclopedia dramatica to maintain a monthly backup of the wiki database via special:export function and keep the backup in an offsite location as to minimize damage in the event of any outage and or shutdown, in similarity with dumps.wikimedia.orgFAMAS 01:09, 4 December 2016 (EST)

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)

Catch-up

For the benefit of those who haven't been able to access ED at all for the last few days, due to some cloudflare crap-out, what was the deal with the attack of the sockpuppets that can be seen in recent changes? (I could go and figure it out myself, but that would be dull) Sidecar 16:40, 10 December 2016 (EST)

A grown ass adult is throwing a spergasm and wants to take down his article by making edits to it crying.
Also, could one of the bcrats rm BMO's adminship? It's going nuts atm and isn't monitored well enough to justify not being able to ban it. Mike the Great (talk) 21:45, 10 December 2016 (EDT)
U can totally ban bmo. admins can be banned they just can unban themselves, which bmo is not set to do iirc. --Mantequilla (talk) Mantequilla.png 09:34, 11 December 2016 (EST)
To be more specific, it was Oliver D. Smith, who is so assblasted because he has an article here he decided to spam butthurt edits, and when he couldn't do that, insulting user accounts. We managed to deal with the socks and we now have some title blacklist stuff in place to make further butthurt spam assaults much harder. DarkLordTR --> Talk here, n00bs. 19:11, 10 December 2016 (EST)
My bad, my understanding was that admins could also edit while banned. Mike the Great (talk) 16:38, 11 December 2016 (EDT)
No. Admins must unban themselves first. —  VX  19:16, 11 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)
Nah I talked to him in person. He said he is going to make accounts until ED dies. Mike the Great (talk) 02:21, 12 December 2016 (EDT)

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)
