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


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). MAKE SURE TO ASK AN ADMIN FOR ACCOUNT APPROVAL TO UNLOCK EDITING PRIVILEGES. GO TO THE FORUM, OUR CURRENT DISCORD SERVER, OR ASK ONE OF OUR ADMINS ON THEIR USER-TALK-PAGES. 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.

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

$wgUseInstantCommons

hi: the wiki is currently configured to display images from Wikimedia Commons when the file is missing locally. for instance a link to File:112.jpg (a file that is either missing or was never here) uses a Commons redirect to a picture of a Volvo. pls see this page at MediaWiki.org. apparently $wgUseInstantCommons is currently set to true. i presume it needs to be set to false. :) Hipcrime (talk) 11:07, 10 December 2020 (PST)

edit filter II electric etcetera

hi: the edit filter is tripping me up again:

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: mywikibiz.com

is there any way to just do away with the entire edit filter? Hipcrime (talk) 12:14, 14 December 2020 (PST)

  i don't control the blacklist thing, you might just hit up umk for that

skipcaptcha rights

At the moment, only bots and administrators have the skipcaptcha right. This makes editing slow and tedious for everyone else. Can the skipcaptcha bit please be to granted to Autoconfirmed users, Automoderated users, and EDitors as well? --Ld3105 (talk) 12:45, 2 March 2021 (EST)

I have contacted the Webmaster about the issue and it will be done after the Image issue is fixed and the script imports are done. Meanwhile please wait Tabby-icon.png  Conciërge Kapitein-Commandant Tabs æ 13:14, 2 March 2021 (EST)
Understood. Thanks. --Ld3105 (talk) 21:17, 2 March 2021 (EST)
