How do we make Encyclopedia Dramatica as popular as it was before GirlVinyl started Oh Internets?

    I looked back at www.EncyclopediaDramatica. com's pages from before Jan 2011. Before GirlVinyl shut down the awesome original Encylopedia Dramatia and started the atrocity known as OhInternets.

    By the way, OhInternets is superlame and unlulzy. It is basically like the Know Your Memes, except with less Jewness involved (As in OhInternet doesn't rack up as money from Youtube ad revenue and Internet traffic in general as KnowYourMeme). It is basically a lame rip off of the original Encyclopedia Dramatica.

    Thankfully, Zaiger restored Encyclopedia Dramatica back to its former glory. But after Girlvinyl killed ED by replacing it with OhInternet, ED's fan base suffered from a huge drop. Is there a way for us to restore ED's popularity back to its former glory days before GirlVinyl took it down? By the way, why did ED2's servers change from different countries? Why is it now a se domain?

    ED deserves nothing more than disgust, contempt, and loathing from all corners of the internet.

    If we become cool I fucking quit.

    So what you are saying is that ED needs to have a small but highly dedicated fan base? Ok that makes sense. By the way what does the Slowpoke icon mean?

    Yes. We need videos of people killing themselves. If you would set yourself ablaze while livestreaming, then we could put it on the front page, and we would get perhaps 15 views, that weren't Uberfukken using refresh.

    Do you want to tell us something? Or are you just trying to give us a shitty history lesson on stuff we already know about?

    Im sure if you go on a shooting rampage and then kill yourself, all in the name of ED we'll get more popular

    No I am serious. I'm not going to kill myself. I'm not going to die for ED. I'm not going to go an hero just to make this site popular, despite how much I like it. There must be some other, less violent and damaging way to make this site more popular without fatally harming me or someone else. And yes, Uberfukken likes to refresh ED's front page alot. So do :)

    Sure. Let me do it. But as much as I'm a huge fan of ED, I will not kill myself IRL to make ED more popular. Can somebody else do that fore me? And I don't think you guys are capable of making me go on a shooting rampage in the first place, let alone one done in the name of ED. I'm not that mentally unstable of a guy, believe it or not.

    We need more satirists. But also people need to do what I do. There is a reason Zaiger has put into the topic in #Wiki pushing for the creation of articles relating to news and events, including political ones.

    Making ED more popular isn't about changing what we do, but changing people into liking what we do. This requires corrupting their children with lulz.

    Redirect DNS for OhI to a splash page stating that the site is closed due to AIDS and that all future pool parties are now at ED.

    Taking down popular websites is a great way to make new friends. I propose we root 4chan.

    If the admins got a hold of the .com domain from sherrod, it would help; and it's .se because the swedes are cool and don't require you to have a physical address there or something to use their domains. This place got shut down during .ch because of the physical address thing.

    Also, I like what zaiger and e have done around here with the nigger article restored to it's former glory and no redirect ads.

    A). You are 2 fucking years late. Everything you posted has been posted 1,000 times.

    B). No one remembers OhInternet and those that DO remember it don't give a shit about it.

    I remember it like it was yesterday. December 7th 1941. In the afternoon I heard President Roosevelt on the radio saying that the U.S. had suffered an attack from the Japanese; the fleet was crippled and a bunch of our boys had gotten killed. I knew those squinty-eyed Japs, and their pretty-princess puppet emperor couldn't be trusted, especially not after we knew that they were allies with the Nazis. Anyhow, I signed my papers and shipped overseas as soon as I could. You know the rest.

    lol I know how to internet lol. I'm probably at least as skilled as you at the internet. I just wanted to remind you guys of the former glory days of ED before that piece of lard, GirlVinyl turned into the clusterfuck of epic fail known as OhInternet (which promptly falls under the category of Shit Nobody Cares About).

    If you'd known how to internet, you'd've used Google to research your shit, and then realized that everything you brought up is fossilized as T. rex bones. You also would've realized that ED/EDF2 is still more popular in its bastardized .se form than OHi ever will be.

    So I say again, lrn2internet you blazing assfaggot.

    Not to mention with stuff like the Parabon Computation leaks, this form of ED is arguably better than it ever was under those who were incapable of evolving. People have been receptive of this change for the better.
