    I've joined this forum because I'm eager to edit and author some Encyclopedia Dramatica pages, as there is lots of truly shameful and spectacular Internet drama which I've observed, stuff so deliciously wrong that it deserves to be forever enshrined in ED.

    The thing is, I've never edited a Wiki page, and I want to make sure I do it right. So I'm hoping people here can guide me in that direction.

    About me: I live in the SF Bay Area, and I spend too much time on the Web.

    OK, I followed instructions and checked out the stickies in Hard Gay Chats. There I found a thread about Sherrod's faggotry, in which there was a link to ED's Steve Jobs entry, and then a link to OI's Steve Jobs page for comparison.

    Jesus Fucking Christ, what in holy Hell happened? I knew Oh Internets was tepid, but...

    What the fuck are they thinking?

    I was very sad when I realized ED was gone, and I am most thankful that all of you have brought it back from the dead, because that OI shit is just unacceptable.

    Thanks for the welcomes! Right before ED disappeared, I had attempted to join the old ED forums, but never got my registration confirmed, probably because the admins knew everything was in the process of going away.

    Anyway, can somebody direct me to resources so I can learn to edit and author ED pages? I am a Yelper (hate to admit that publicly) and I have a lot of scandalous, juicy, horrifying, true tales of drama which I would like to either add to ED's Yelp entry or spin off as supplementary pages.

    Thank you Zaiger! I shall digest these materials. By the way, do you think I should change my avatar image? Guy Fieri is such a douche.

    Guy Fieri is an obese douche from The Food Network who says things like, "OK guys, today we are ROCKIN' these braised pork ribs!"

    South Park made fun of him in their "Creme Fraiche" episode.

    Can I still be a huge fag? That's one thing I liked when I read the FAQs for the old ED forums: The FAQ for the question, "Why did I get banned?" was "Because you were probably being a huge fag."

    You can be as much of a fag as you want, you just have to report to me, the self proclaimed king of faggots.

    We aren't ban happy here, and there is a pretty strict ban policy. Unless you're spamming, posting illegal shit, or impersonating a sysop, the chances of you getting banned are pretty close to 0.05%

    I'm glad to hear it! I've been perma-banned from Yelp, and am continually having to change my IP address just to get back on there with new characters. Every time one of my accounts gets banned, it's kind of sad for me. I refuse to let those fuckers win, though. So I keep going back. I'm not a troll, mind you. I'm actually well-liked there. Except by the admin staff and a few fucktards who keep ratting me out.

    I have a question: On the "How 2 EDit for dummies" page, I find the following protip:

    But I'm a little unclear as to how to create a new article in the first place, much less make sure the new article is located within my profile's sandbox.

    In other words, I'm looking for something to click on that says, "create new article" or accomplishes that goal, and I'm not finding it.

    Sorry for being a little stupid, but if somebody could point me towards that, I promise I will eventually reward you with articles full of lulz.

    Thank you.

    Clicking either of the circled links will give you an edit box to write your markup, you can then click preview to give you an idea of how your code is turning out and eventually save to publish it. You have to be logged in.

    Thank you, Zaiger! I hope that I will soon be presenting you with articles that are lul-worthy. Probably not tonight, though, because I am a tired fag.

    Uh, oh: I did a test edit and test save on that Kugkjgkgj page, and it simply changed the page. I was hoping/expecting that some kind of dialog would come up which could enable me to save the page into the appropriate place or pathway, i.e.,
    How do I ensure that the page winds up there, and not elsewhere? And how do I re-name the page to reflect the subject matter I'm writing about?

    Sorry for being so dumb. I really do try to read the documentation before I ask these sorts of things.

    Thanks again.
