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 on ED Discord Server 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


Users

All are welcome, as long as you read and agree to the general disclaimer. The only real requirement is to create an email-confirmed account to edit articles (no anonymous editing allowed). GO TO THE FORUM, OUR CURRENT DISCORD SERVER, OR ASK ONE OF OUR ADMINS ON THEIR USER-TALK-PAGES FOR HELP. KTHX.

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.Avoid putting deathnotices on articles as there are usually better ways to do shit
  • 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.
  • Update/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 privs

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

Banplz: 0 Delete: -1

Editors

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 with {{delete}}.


Administrators

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

user rights/privs/whatever

autoconfirmedUsers shouldn't be able to move pages, what's the deal with that? pretty sure it should be editor+ Schnitzel (talk) 18:07, 31 December 2021 (EST)

yes this was rectified last week by sysadmin .wil Gondola.gif 00:20, 11 January 2022 (EST)

Nobody set anything...

I mean, he's not wrong BigMeatHuggins 17:18, 7 January 2022 (EST)

i'm always right and also nobody's named the aotns on this page yet Schnitzel (talk) 14:00, 8 January 2022 (EST)
You gotta have special prives for that though. Droppy 14:14 8 January 2022 (ECT)
  • yeah? that's what i mean: mods/editors should do something about it and also cacscade protect xotns because someone could very easily {{2000goatse}} the main page. in fact why would the ED:AOTN page even be protected? it has no bearing on the actual content that shows up on the front page and nobody has any reason to fuck with it Schnitzel (talk) 14:22, 8 January 2022 (EST)
Sounds like the lazy faggot admins need to promote someone already so the fucking AOTN stays up to date. Even inferior wikis get this right, why can't we? inb4 gibadmins pls I'm far too fucking busy to do that crap myself lmao BigMeatHuggins 09:31, 10 January 2022 (EST)
all, and I say ALLLLL of them are too busy on EDF, sucking cock on discord or just being lazy. they even removed my sysop privs because I refused to join disc MarioMario456 (Talk to me | My contributions) 13:50, 10 January 2022 (EST)
That wasn't the main reason. Many don't care about the discord. But the discord was the most convenient way to talk about issues people were having with you. You had your Admin taken away from starting shit with me and Kaizen. I did you a solid, although I did not know what was going on. And then you went on the forums and gloated. I'll talk to Kaizen about giving you your Admin back next time I see him, it's his decision.UMK UMK.gif 00:38, 1 February 2022 (EST)
Kaizen still wants you to be able to communicate with the other editors on our discord, so until you are ready you're still a pleb.UMK UMK.gif 01:12, 1 February 2022 (EST)
  • it's been that way for years lol, when i was mod all i'd do was xotn since nobody but maybe 2 others would do it. if this site stays it'd make more sense to just be an archive and not a wiki since nobody cares enough to update it. that being said if you want to be admin you should just join the discord since it's easy instant communication and you don't even need to really use anything but the admin channel they add you to. be the change you want to see in the world etc Schnitzel (talk) 19:36, 10 January 2022 (EST)
I'm having a lot of fun updating the pages with new drama, new content, new happenings etc. The world has changed a ton in the last six years since this site saw it's biggest hive of activity with Trump in office and generating the most amount of lulz since Chanology I guess. I think the biggest problem we face in this current era of the internet is that there's no definitive "ANON BOARD" any more. 4chan is and always was a shithole, 8chan turned into a shithole, and mass exodus after mass exodus from platform to platform have fragmented the community that WOULD use ED to a point where they've moved on. I don't want to say anons have grown out of being anons, but everything I've seen over the last few years seems to point to that. It's sad, it's really really sad. HOWEVER... there is no shortage of lulz to document today, and plenty more lulz from the past to editorialize. There are no shortage of autistic furfags for example, and the furfags that we mocked relentlessly are probably still around making drama THAT NOBODYS TALKING ABOUT. The shitstorm that would unfold with them finding out we wrote about them would be just as hilarious today as it would have been ten years ago, because it's not like ED's lost it's touch, it's aged like wine. That's just furfags though, the same thing could happen with any asshole on twitter with a blue-checkmark. Nevar forget, with great drama comes great notoriety.

Can someonad {{Takedown}} and {{Lulcowboard}} to mikemikev's page pleez

Droppy 13:45 8 January 2022 (ECT)

Viril sock confirmed. You can't do anything about it now. MarioMario456 (Talk to me | My contributions) 14:26, 8 January 2022 (EST)
lmfao is this guy still a thing Meepsheep (talk) 09:53, 1 February 2022 (EST)

autoblock

Autoblock has been fixed to automatically be applied as infinite as previous settings were resulting in niggerlicious sockpuppetry. A thread on EDF to contest bans/blocks has been created. Previously, users were being referred to the ED Discord which is gay. Discord is fucking gay and has been deleted with no warning by Discord. .wil Gondola.gif 22:12, 13 January 2022 (EST)

You can indef lock the Anatoly Karlin article and its talk page

Mikemikev is going to keep creating socks to vandalise and impersonate other users on the article- so you might as well permanently lock it like others. I have nothing more to add to the article and its done anyway. Novosibirsk (talk) 10:01, 27 January 2022 (EST)

The bigger problem is how to deal with the endless volume of socks the three spergs (Viril, Antandrus and Mikemikev) keep fucking making. One option is to lock the user registration indefinitely and either have new potential users go on your forums or discord. I know it's a flawed idea, but the extra effort to make a workable sock account might just be enough to deter them, because instead of making one account they have to make two or three on separate platforms. It's hardly an inconvenience for an EDiot, but it is for these three where all they want to do is sock and vandalize a wiki. BigMeatHuggins 14:56, 27 January 2022 (EST)
Just revert their edits as vandalism is pointless. Antandrus is harmless. Viril and Mikemikev are harmless too. Watch recent changes and stay vigilant. Mark their userpage with {{banplz}} so it shows in sysop tasks. .wil Gondola.gif 15:15, 27 January 2022 (EST)
I agree. Their all harmless, but only one of the gives a shit about bettering the wiki, when he should probably just do other shit/get a fucking life. JWL 15:19 27 January 2022 (EST)
hi and bye viril lol. get a fucking life .wil Gondola.gif 15:24, 27 January 2022 (EST)

i can't {{spree}} anymore

it triggers some spam blacklist, can you remove it? MarioMario456 (Talk to me | My contributions) 12:58, 2 February 2022 (EST)

hm that's odd. the template consists basically of:
{{Spree1}}{{Spree2}}{{seizurerape}} {{pain}}
have you tried just applying those four (or some or one of them) to the page in question? i see you tagged Kaizen. hopefully "Echo notifications" will notify him he was mentioned. if not, lmk and i can drop a note there. if youer already a sysop (i think so but i cant remember) try "subst:" 'ing the templates above? -hipcrime Emote Pop tart cat.gif 00:31, 8 February 2022 (EST)
please be more specific mario, "some spam blacklist" doesn't tell me anything. Kaizen (talk) 15:28, 14 February 2022 (EST)
this is what it says: "Error: The text you wanted to save was blocked by the spam filter. This is probably caused by a link to a blacklisted external site. The following text is what triggered our spam filter: wikipaste.eu " MarioMario456 (Talk to me | My contributions) 15:30, 14 February 2022 (EST)
try now, i removed all references to wikipaste because it's fucking dead. Kaizen (talk) 17:11, 14 February 2022 (EST)
it works now. thanks MarioMario456 (Talk to me | My contributions) 17:35, 14 February 2022 (EST)

Ethan Ralph Drama.

Not only do we need to update this to include all of 2021's drama, but I also found an archive of this article from 2020 back on .wiki

It was RIGHT before the site crash. So SOMEONE is gonna have to update it, and add all of GR's absolutely lulzy shoopz. I'll make his article the feature article to bring attention to his aticle. Truth4all 09:18 6 February 2021 (EDT)

Hey MarioMario456 and YaroslavTV...

Please explain to me why QAnon doesn't belong on the {{Leaders}} template. Tedium 15:03 20 February 2021 (ECT)

viril sock confirmed. enjoy your b& MarioMario456 (Talk to me | My contributions) 15:13, 20 February 2022 (EST)

wiki features requests

update on the OGG/OGV/OGA handler plz (copied over from TJC archive 71)

  • is there any update on this? the .ogg of fagnotta's daddyporn keeps getting moved (by the same user) to an .ogv without explanation except to link to an IETF document which is updated and far past my limited knowledge of .ogg files. an old .OGG file of fagnotta's daddyporn worked fine at .rs and is even downloadable from archive.org (last i looked) but it will not play here. i believe i tried the .OGV format and it similarly would not play. pls halp -hipcrime Emote Pop tart cat.gif 17:55, 1 December 2021 (EST)
As per line 21 of the TimedMediaHandler README there is no longer support for .ogv files. I have attempted to force handling through ffmpeg to no avail, I'd suggest you download and re-encode the video in a format supported by TimedMediaHandler like mp4 or webm. Kaizen (talk) 00:11, 22 February 2022 (EST)
okay, will do. thanks for letting me know. :) -hipcrime Emote Pop tart cat.gif 02:10, 22 February 2022 (EST)

Choose

hi, we have a few articles that use the <choose> tags, like this userspace draft: User:Hipcrime/Generic Furry Article, the only one i could find at the moment. :^) -hipcrime Emote Pop tart cat.gif 23:06, 21 February 2022 (EST)

I've added RandomSelection to handle these tags. Kaizen (talk) 00:11, 22 February 2022 (EST)
thank you! it works great now. :^) -hipcrime Emote Pop tart cat.gif 02:10, 22 February 2022 (EST)

Threat Advisory

It is the shitty date of 2/23/22, and Russia just declared war on Ukraine. Can we get a new threat advisory made to commemorate pointless meatgrinder wars? --7271712417 (talk) 22:44, 23 February 2022 (EST)

Wait, hold on a fucking minute... isn't ED being hosted in Ukraine right now? BigMeatHuggins 06:01, 24 February 2022 (EST)
i think we are based in a mountain in the Alps. -hipcrime Emote Pop tart cat.gif 19:20, 15 April 2022 (EDT)

Update GNA

Half the GNA on the main page are already old and boring - maybe add the volunteersforukraine and some other articles to it instead? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jelq (talkcontribs)

ok i will add that one. any others? -hipcrime Emote Pop tart cat.gif 19:21, 15 April 2022 (EDT)
already done by MarioMario. :^) -hipcrime Emote Pop tart cat.gif 19:24, 15 April 2022 (EDT)

propose moving a really old article

when, in the course of human events the zeitgeist changes such that it takes a real man to be a woman, and the same zeitgeist has developed a far lulzier term for women, it becomes necessary to move the shitty ED article on wammen to the much more politically correct and far lulzier term fronthole. plz vote below (plz dont make socks Viril) -hipcrime Emote Pop tart cat.gif 19:17, 15 April 2022 (EDT) disregard that etcetera -hipcrime Emote Pop tart cat.gif 06:38, 19 May 2022 (EDT)
