- King: Why are you pinning this up again? This is literally rape.
- King_of_the_Retards: Made you read this
- AuntieTran: I want my 300 dramacoin you fink.
edit 1AUG21: If you’re here from Pewkie’s new sticky, that’s great! Thanks! This is a bit outdated, it’s all still there but we’ve since added a ton of new stuff as well. Figure it out. Or ask.
You may also notice flies swarming this thread - some Clever Trevor hit this post with the Shitpost award. It’s among many fun little things you’ll be able to buy with dramacoin (karma - not real money) in the near future. We’re still building that shop. It should be live by next weekend. Sorry about the flies.
Hi! Thanks for coming! Here's a brief rundown of useful and/or fun stuff you can do to get acclimated to your new safe space
Username and flair customization - Update your display name at any time. Your original name is always reserved by you, so there's no need to worry about someone jacking it while you go around as Cockmelter3000 or whatever for a few days. You can also choose the color of your flair and name. Flairs also allow for our robust (and growing) custom emojis. That's so cool, wow.
Profile pictures and banners, animations welcome + encouraged - Self-explanatory, this one. We're all old and terminally online, and we miss OG forums a lot. While signatures aren't really feasibly useful with the current stack, we'd like to at least somewhat revive the feel of the internet of yesteryear. Reddit is a massive site, but virtually everyone is an interchangeable and easily forgotten username. With prominent and lively avatars and the like, we're hoping to get back to the e-communal spirit of days gone by.
Themes! - Set one of the default themes that you like best and completely change the way the site looks. These were just launched yesterday (3JUL21) so the options are limited to six right now, but more are coming, and with much more variety. Coffee and TronPurple are my favorites at present. BLM, Pride, Furry and some garish pastel with Comic Sans are coming soon. Or soon-ish. Or down the line. Who knows.
Emojis - touching back on the desire to revive the oldschool forum feel, we've integrated a little over 300 custom emojis including Marsey, platy, Taytay and a few hundred ancient early-mid 00s ezboard emojis I stole. You can enter them manually with traditional markup (i.e. surround the name of the emoji with colons), or use that slick emoji picker smiley face icon beneath the text entry field.
Tenor integration - Click the GIF button and enter a search query, then click the picture you want. Type fewer words than ever before and express yourself with imagery produced by someone else for another purpose entirely. Simple. Elegant. Beautiful.
Rules - Oh no, rules No but really, just don't post anything illegal (in the US), creepy libertarian shit, or doxxing (within reason) and you'll be fine. That's pretty much all it says. That, and we reserve the right to remove garbage posts that aren't funny, tedious agendaposts, mdefugees, things that we think removing will elicit a reaction from you, etc.
Bots - All the simplistic python scripts you know and love and feel an affinity with from r/drama are hardcoded directly into the site, so you can always be surrounded by the illusions of old friends. Snappy is here (and uncastrated), you will be zozzed at some point, even longpostbot is here to shame you for typing too much.
DMs - Slide on into someone's DMs with a dick pic or threats to post bussy or face dire consequences. It's easy, just click their username and smash that Message button.
Followers - Become a dramaverse influencer by accumulating as many followers as you can. They'll be notified when you make a new post, and you might even land a coveted spot on the Leaderboard so everyone can see that you've finally made it in life. Try it on my profile. Right now. I will unironically ban you if you don't. Hurry.
Leaderboards - Keep track of who the most hip and happening autists are. Realtime postcount, dramacoin and follower high scores. Someone said something you don't like? See if they're on one of these and mock the shit out of them for it.
Visible voters - Click the three little dots on any thread or comment and then click Votes. Find out who downvoted your hilarious commentary on a Twitter thread no one bothered to read and call that snake out. You can also just quickly view Up/Down totals by clicking the number displayed by the votes, so like +58/-2 or whatever. This is such a long post and I'm really running out of steam here.
Two-factor authentication - Temporarily quell, or at least turn the volume down on the paranoid chittering inside your head by enabling 2FA to protect your precious homosexual pink dating site account even further. Very cool!
Saved posts/comments - You know what this is from Reddit, I'm not explaining it here. Three dots by a post. Click it, then click save. You can access your saved content from your profile.
Our very own Android app! - I can't vouch for the quality of this since I'm not poor and thus have a real phone (iOS app coming soon), and it was also just launched yesterday (3JUL21), but our very own Krc very nicely put together a native app for the povertycels out there. This is an official product and can safely be used without any more fear than comes with using the website in the first place. What are the features? What is coming to it in the future? I have no idea, but I bet it's nice.
@Aevann develops pretty much everything for this site and he does really amazing and impossibly fast work. There are a lot more features coming soon. Like later today, we should have the option to embed music on our profiles so you can pretend you're back on MySpace. I don't care if you don't want this, I do, so don't bother complaining. There's a lot more in the pipeline, and requests/suggestions are always welcome and will definitely be actioned if they're both good and not too much of a pain in the ass. They don't even actually have to be good I guess, let's try to keep things on-brand.
UPDATE: Profile songs are now live and I am SO HAPPY.
At present, you’ll only hear them on desktop though. NOW MOBILE-FRIENDLY
Anyway that's all, thanks again for coming. If you don't like something, that's fine - tell us what you don't like and why you don't like it. If you have a suggestion to make it likeable, definitely include that too. "It's shit" is fine and good feedback, but it's not useful feedback. We'd like it to not be shit though, so telling us why it's shit is beneficial to everyone.
And one final note, since I've seen this mentioned a few times: No, this will not turn into some edgelord mdefugee shithole. This isn't Voat or Ruqqus or whatever, this will always be what r/drama once was. That won't change.
xoxo Carp 💋
Yeah I just wanted to use the pin award, don’t mind me
Ok that’s it sorry for the uninteresting personal minor seethepost thanks for stopping by xx
Specifically the pizza Jeff Sokol brought in his episode of Hansen Vs Predator.
You’ll notice he brings a pizza to his meeting with the 13-year-old, as she requested. A pepperoni pizza and some orange juice. That is the best looking pizza I’ve ever seen. Hands down, no question about it, that pizza looks absolutely delicious. And this was in southwest Connecticut, and I’ve just moved from Connecticut, and I’ll likely return for a visit one day and I’d really love to get that pizza.
But they blurred the box.
Fortunately, some other severely neurodivergent man also badly wanted to try the pizza, so he sussed out where it was from somehow despite living in another state, 3-4 hours away. He uploaded a video of him getting the Jeff Sokol Special (not an official menu item).
Over 10,000 pizza and Hansen appreciators have sought out this video and viewed it because goddamn just look at that pizza.
My friend also remembered how good the pizza looked.
And he’s just there munching it while Chris tells him his life is over. Even offers Chris a slice. I think the reason he was so chill is because he realized he wouldn’t have to share it with some zoomer brat, personally.
Planet Pizza has locations in New York and southwest Connecticut. If you can provide a timestamped Planet Pizza receipt with the Jeff Sokol Special, I will give you a very desirable pizza predator badge.
Do you remember Mr. Sokol’s pizza? Please weigh in.

Still 21 hours of ban award to go but I wanted to post this
What are you gonna do about it
brb 21 hours
- Deleted_User: I still see it at 5000 for a ban award
We are still waiting on the launch of the full shop. Yes. But it’s coming.
Anyway I lowered the prices of the existing items by a ton. Go nuts.
Oh, also, all but the bottom tier of paypig now get free ban awards each month instead of just the top two.
As a reminder, downvotes give the same amount of dramacoin as an upvote, and increase Hot ranking the same as an upvote.
So thanks for more than a full percentile of my total dramacoin @AuntyAbortion
- jasongrace999: Is carp a straggot?
Should we add “hackers on estradiol” to the right of the rdrama logo at the top in a cutesy font? There’s some concern that the reference is too niche and it’ll seem unnecessarily self-aggrandizing, but I feel the reference is more or less ubiquitous. edit: the reference is now explained for godless foreign scum in the top comment
DISREGARD, MY NEW IDEA IS MUCH BETTER
Also the word filter has been updated
Idk if plebs can see that chart, lmk if not.
In related news, we have:
3,221,932 dramacoin in circulation
3,558,161 total votes
Crazy. It's been like 4.5 months. 3 months since the mass migration.
my permissions to edit the rdrama repo have been revoked presumably in error but aevann is prolly asleep so lets pretend it was intentional apparently i can still make changes like a common pleb by installing docker or some shit but im not doing any of that and so in lieu of the word filter update and snappy update, please manually change your own words to other things and imagine exciting new snappy quotes that would and could have been added but were not i was particularly excited for jewish slurs to be changed to "israeli friend" but it was not meant to be kike Israeli friend Israeli friend Israeli friend jewboy Israeli friend Israeli friend
edit: disregard all that, i suck cocks
word filter update is pending commit, snappy is TBD
- Gigavaccinator: Yo nigga carp if you see this unban me 🤝🏿

- AuntyAbortion: Not even dramatic just likes notifying her hostages that she's made another post
Long title idc
Wild pair of threads
This political comic symbolizes the spiritual evils of capitalistic society. You can see the proletariat smiling happily as he drives away from his job at the Work Factory. This illustrates that he finds joy away from his employment, and even joy in the simple act of leaving his place of work for the day. He does not like to be at the Work Factory.
