    We are almost legitimate now!

    I will move this into the news forum in a couple of days, I just wanted everyone to see it in HGC first. I'm not sure how I feel about it, but it's something and that's better than nothing right? Do you think this will be a good enough source for Wikipedia?

    Did it take this fucking long for them to write on it.

    It's not a bad article at all, they have legit sources, and tell the actual story.

    A lot of it has to do with the man she speaks about, Daniel Brandt. Him and a few other people were harassing Sherrod to the point where she said fuck it. She already hated ED and moved on. Her mistakes were thinking that everyone else would move on with her, and that she had the authority to tell those who did not move on that they were not permitted to recreate the Wiki. I have emails from her proving that the reason she has not released backups or images is that she is afraid of retribution by Brandt. That is pretty much it.

    Of course not.

    They talked to us the day the Wiki went back online. So about a week ago.

    Fun to see we're gaining some sort of reputation(Although I'm not even sure if this is negative or positive...).

    I agree, and I think it's neutral. However not seeing many neutral POV's in my life I am not 100% sure of that yet.

    I doubt that Wikipedians care to recognize non-linear refounding of franchises, be it userbase-triggered or not. Presumably ED.ch will remain within their articles as merely one among 'numerous mirror sites' of 'original' ED content.

    There are no more numerous mirrors, we are it. With enough sources they will have to recognize it eventually.

    lol, no. I can say with honestly that they didn't even know Sherrod existed until about a year ago, before that they had the site owner listed as Joseph Evers :)

    Well, at least it (somewhat) recognizes Ohinternet for being a steaming pile of web 2.0 shit.

    I liked the article.
    I was particularly fond of, "until three months ago, when its creator Sherrod DeGrippo took it offline and replaced it with what some ED fans consider a sanitized abomination."

    I can't speak to the threats that ultimately forced Sherrod to pull down the site, as I'm assuming they went deep, but I think it's important to keep ED up and running in the face of those cunt puritans who would see everything blacked out, as to their wishes. In real life, I've suffered legal and physical retribution at times for taking stands - and if ED is going to get nailed, I'll go down with it. Believe it or not, ED is too important to fade away. It was hardly ever about memes, I thought- it was about a shared culture of people who didn't take shit from faggots, in whatever form they came.

    So to the extent of this article, I think it was fair. And any publicity - especially one that touts ED as being "back" is a great thing.

    Says the fag posting last measure like it's still new. Just FYI I can make the forum redirect to any site I want for whatever individual I want so it would be pretty easy to get you to go to any link I want ^___^

    Right. I am soooooooooo nice.

    Knots has his head so far up Sherrod's ass. If any of the mods/admins here acted like knots/dan/yiri they would be expelled.

    Knots hates the Half-Life series. This fact makes him worth less than stale diarrhoea in a dixie cup.
