TheRedArchive is the largest archive of content related to The Red Pill, including all posts and comments from various subreddits such as /r/TheRedPill and /r/askTRP, posts from many blogs such as The Rational Male and Heartiste, and books.
Our purpose is to have a copy of all published Red Pill content in the case that they get removed, and make it accessible and searchable to everyone.
The website began in 2018. After /r/TheRedPill got quarantined, there was a real fear around the community that the subreddit one day would get banned, resulting in a lot of golden content and invaluable knowledge being permanently lost.
Due to this, I decided to archive every single post and comment from the subreddit and make it accessible, browsable and searchable. I did this by finding a way to scrape the entire content of the subreddit, and then coding a simple website to browse through the data. I called the website TheRedArchive.
Ever since, I added more subreddits related to The Red Pill, including askTRP, MarriedRedPill, MGTOW, PurplePillDebate and WhereAreAllTheGoodMen. In 2019, after Heartiste's blog being banned on Wordpress, I decided to start archiving Red Pill blogs as well, with The Rational Male and Heartiste being the first.
Currently, I am doing my best to maintain the effectiveness and functionality of the website, along with working on new features, adding more subreddits and blogs to the archive, and financing the website.─ /u/dream-hunter
Help TheRedArchive stay alive
With 1,000,000+ posts and 25,000,000+ comments archived, and new Red Pill content being added every week, keeping TheRedArchive alive and discoverable to everyone is starting to become very costly. As a 21-year-old student who just moved out and is living independently for the first time, keeping TheRedArchive alive is beginning to cost me much more than I thought.
Therefore, if you appreciate the website, have gained knowledge and insight from it, and want to show your appreciation, you can do so by donating any amount that you want via the options below. The money will be used on the expensive monthly host bill and any future maintenance of the website.
Thank you in advance, and I wish you all a happy and successful 2023.─ /u/dream-hunter

Yes. Everything is free and there are no ads, and the website is funded from my money. If you appreciate the work, you can always leave a tip to help me out. Thank you!
As of now, 1,176,138 posts and 27,332,240 comments are archived.
Those come from 42 Red Pill related subreddits and 34 Red Pill related blogs.
Some subreddits have 100,000+ of posts archived. However, to prevent the browser from crashing, only top 500 most upvoted posts are shown. To find the rest of the posts, you have to search for them.
Yes. Each post can be downloaded as PDF, TXT, and EPUB. Click here for how.
Furthermore, each subreddit has a PDF file with top 1000 most upvoted posts, and each blog has a PDF file with all of its posts. You can download these files in the archive page of the subreddit/blog.
Sure. Be it an idea for the website or a subreddit/blog to be archived, just reach out to me.
Partially yes. I want the content to stay due to the purpose of the website (have everything archived), however, I can remove anything on the content that can be connected to you (e.g. your Reddit username, a description of you or someone else, a city name, etc.). I don't want you to be doxable, so just reach out to me and we will figure a solution out.
A combination of PHP, MySQL, HTML, CSS, and JS. The scraping was done purely with a PHP script I coded.
