[Mod] Reminder of appropriate content...

Reddit View
April 7, 2014

I've been removing and redirecting posts a lot recently, just wanted to remind folks of our other subs which serve for certain types of content.

Do you have a question about a specific situation?

A particular girl or scenario that you're confused about?


Do you have a question about clarifying something most people here already seem to get?


Do you have a theory that you'd like input on?

Or do you have a broad question that may spark an interesting theory debate?

/r/theredpill (flair: Ask TRP)

Do you have a success story?

Did you go from rags to riches? Is your life better now?


Do you have a field report testing a theory or idea?

/r/theredpill (flair: Field Report)

Do you have a fluffy, feel-good, self-help motivational piece?

'Be the man you want to be' and other platitudes?

Shouldn't that be posted to /r/ModTRP instead?

Seriously, I'm a recent lurker and wasn't aware of these other subs, is there really that much content posted to justify so many subs dealing with this interesting subject?

[–]Modredpillschool[S,M] 2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Yes, the content on asktrp is absolutely stuff that never belonged on theredpill until we had an influx of new members.

Likewise the content on thanktrp was never common here, but as we got more new members it started cropping up.

All normal red pill topics will always stay on theredpill. This was to deal with the influx of new members posting seddit shit.

Make a multireddit with all the subs related to redpill.

[–]supercold1 43 points44 points  (6 children) | Copy

One of these days, every subreddit on reddit is going to "subereddit" themselves out of existence. Every topic will continue to be chopped into smaller subtopics until they no longer exist. They will spiral downward into a fractal pattern of destruction.

I agree, I think it's a little silly and overkill. Why can't this be a one stop shop? That's why we have the upvote/downvote policy in place - irrelevant, uninteresting or repetitive content will be moderated accordingly by the community. If a topic that's been asked many times before still gets upvotes, it just means that topic is still relevant to many (most likely new) subscribers.

repetitive content won't be moderated accordingly by the community because with 44k people viewing reposts are going to get voted to the top because most people don't bother to actually scroll the history.

I disagree, /r/askTRP is a busy enough sub in it's own right. People (most often newcomers to TRP), go over there to get help.

What use is it if the second they post a 'noob' question, it gets downvoted to shit, they get a torrent load of abuse, and think "fuck TRP, the Blue Pill is the better way to go!". You get a load of guys who've been here for a year a so abusing these new guys with their incorrect info/annoying questions, you just put them off the idea of TRP. Without newcomers, whether you like them or not, this sub would eventually stagnate.

The good thing about /r/askTRP is that it gives them a platform to ask questions and engage in useful debate, without getting in the way of the 'pro's' on the main TRP forum.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

My go-to rule with reddit is that once a sub reaches 70K subs, quality is shit-tier. Once it goes to 100K sub, the shit is so spread out that it's time to unsub.

Works everytime.

Based on the growth of TRP, I guess I'll be around for a couple months at least, maybe not much more.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

There's two ways of policing a sub to keep out low quality content: remove those posts outright, or relegate them to another sub and see how much interest there is in participating in those conversations.

asktrp is doing a great job answering questions from new members while keeping those posts off of TRP. thanktrp hopefully clues people in to the fact that no one wants to read infomercial-like testimonials.

[–]Wrong_Opinion 15 points16 points  (10 children) | Copy

While this is nominally correct, it is also nominally inconvenient for this reason: Despite having posted in TRP proper a few times, when I attempted to post a thread in AskTRP the subreddit actively prevented me from submitting a text post. I had to use RES to bypass whatever measures were in place to make a post.

It occurs to me people are posting AskTRP content in TRP proper in part due to this restriction. We've posted in TRP, we are "part of the community" but the software on AskTRP is unable to make this determination.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (8 children) | Copy

I've had the same problem. I'm waiting for 2 weeks to submit an important question on /r/asktrp.

[–]Modredpillschool[S,M] 0 points1 point  (7 children) | Copy

I've lessened the spam restrictions on the sub, you can try again.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (6 children) | Copy

doesnot work

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 0 points1 point  (5 children) | Copy

It does not appear you have attempted a new submission in the past 54 minutes to test this.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (4 children) | Copy

i just tried it two times

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 0 points1 point  (3 children) | Copy

What's the error you're getting?

I only have two spam controls I can change, and both are relaxed. One is spam filter: which I have at low, and would let you post but might get caught in the spam filter (which I do not see any from you), and the other is automod which deletes posts that might be from trolls, (which again, I see none from you).

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

it says that either i am a new user either my latest tries to submit a new post failed

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

hmm... sounds like a reddit issue, nothing I can control!

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Okay. thanks for trying!

[–]Modredpillschool[S,M] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I've lessened the spam restrictions on the sub, you can try again.

[–]RojoEscarlata 21 points22 points  (2 children) | Copy

So /r/ThankTRP is a containment sub?

Imo those kind of success stories could be better put in a weekly thread along FR.

Most of the time those stories are (or could) be structured as a FR.

[–]HitlersCow 6 points7 points  (0 children) | Copy

I agree. It would be a great counter-balance to the 10 "Hamster Example" threads every day.

Learning by example is a helluva lot more powerful than whining about the nature of women.

[–]IDefyAxioms 2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Yeah, what lots of subs do as they grow in popularity is take the super common/'general use' posts and toss 'em all in a weekly thread. Seems to work great. No muss, no fuss.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
