As many of you know, we've been working hard on backup forums in case the reddit admin decided to put us in the crosshairs. We've seen quite a bit of admin action in the past couple days, so, without further ado:

https://www.forums.red/

We are still working out a lot of kinks (including occasional server issues) but we wanted to announce to make sure people bookmark our new TheRedPill forums.red presence:

sooo you've made a forum for betas? jks

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 114 points115 points  (9 children) | Copy

Alphas don't need us anymore.

[–]zUltimateRedditor21 points22 points  (0 children) | Copy

Oh snap! Gorgeous response! Well done.

[–]Stron2g1 point2 points  (7 children) | Copy

IDK, I think what is projected as Alpha is over-romanticized in this forum, the perfect alpha doesn't exist, it's a construct for an ideal to reach for, but we are all just humans in the end. As much as you like it or hate it, none of us will be that chad that knows and does everything, everyone is beta in some domain, you can always learn more.

Nah, both MGTOW and TRP have a common ground - plate women, but don't commit. Some red pill men agree with LTR and even marriage including Rollo, but I would definitely say after knowing so much about women it's foolish and ignorant. At least the womanizers I came across this forum won't ever commit - because no one knows better than them how fucking disloyal are women.

Twas a joke

[–]1empatheticapathetic-1 points0 points  (0 children) | Copy

Ok

[–]Greaterbird7 points8 points  (0 children) | Copy

Hey, I came here to make the obvious joke

[–]desbest13 points14 points  (13 children) | Copy

What's the difference between forums.red and trp.red? Why do we need two different websites?

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 17 points18 points  (12 children) | Copy

We recognized the need for more off-the-cuff twitter style, less serious communications. So we cloned twitter on trp.red.

But there was always demand for threaded, serious discussion and we created forums.red for such a task.

You can create a "tribe" which can be a public or private group or topic. The membership for a tribe carries over between the trp.red tribe and forums.red forum.

Why did you create your own technology rather than use Mastodon (GitHub /tootsuite/mastodon) or another self-hosted social media platform instance?

[–]MagnumBurrito2 points3 points  (6 children) | Copy

Those sites could do the same as reddit and ban trp

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 8 points9 points  (0 children) | Copy

Those sites could do the same as reddit and ban trp

This precisely. We already know what it's like to have a boss. Don't want to trade an old boss for a new boss. We want some level of control over our destiny.

[–]fnncktbjhmkhed3 points4 points  (4 children) | Copy

I am referring to self-hosted, decentralized platforms with interconnectivity with other instances (installations of the software on other servers). They cannot be shut down by anyone but your web host (but you keep backups right?) after which they can be brought back up like nothing happened. There are a lot of these. Diaspora is another one.

It appears that the mods do not intend to answer my question. The site is built anyway, they won’t want to ditch it after putting so much work into it.

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

We wanted a custom experience, including a way to migrate existing reddit communities and users.

So we had one developed.

[–]fnncktbjhmkhed2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

Thank you for the response. Another question, are you going to be prematurely closing or restricting asktrp? You made a new sticky recently.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

We are encouraging users to start using the new platforms but we will not be closing posting here.

[–]desbest0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Mastodon, GNU Social, Pleroma are for microblogging, not forums.

[–]Noitrasama1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Thanks for this clarification but why wasnt this explained earlier. Everytime I went to trp.red I couldn't get it. All I saw was replies. No topic like r/TheRedPill. I even wrote a text & I was blocked from posting.

Let's see here...

TRP.red signup? Free.

Forums.red Signup? Free.

Create or join Tribes? Free.

Participate in conversation? Free.

Hosting the infrastructure that handles millions of hits? completely out of pocket for me offset by generous donations.

Yeah, "monetize" this. Get out.

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

The discord is monetized heavily.

The discord is for a fraternity that a group is trying to start in real life. Like, with real, rented buildings and such.

TRP isn't monetized and we've done a hell of a job keeping it that way.

The IRC is open and free, help yourself to chat.

TRP.RED includes FREE chat rooms for any and all tribes.

[–]yaboyebeatz6 points7 points  (5 children) | Copy

Have y’all seen TBP community on here? Mfs need help ASAP!

[–]mikrodizels5 points6 points  (4 children) | Copy

Are you talking about the satire sub here on reddit?

[–]yaboyebeatz3 points4 points  (3 children) | Copy

Yea. A bunch of men wearing skirts, sipping wine and complaining about red pill alphas. “They don’t treat women with respect, it’s disgusting”. Like Bro, I’m the reason your girl don’t want to fuck you. Keep putting her ass on a pedestal and crying like a little bitch and I guarantee you I won’t be the last.

[–]ritvarpro0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

Dude, why are you so mad aboit it? It's satire.

[–]yaboyebeatz2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Definitely not mad about it. It’s just hilarious to me as I was once a blue pilled beta. Shit blows my mind now.

[–]FormerBradFutureChad3 points4 points  (3 children) | Copy

Dark mode please and thanks

[–]OsirisXO5 points6 points  (2 children) | Copy

Dark mode is under user settings

[–]FormerBradFutureChad7 points8 points  (1 child) | Copy

I went ahead and downvoted myself for not looking for it better haha, thanks!

[–]PrometheusRisesIN-1 points0 points  (0 children) | Copy

I helped you in downviting.

[–]blearx1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Glad you guys are progressing on this

[–]Balderdash791 point2 points  (2 children) | Copy

Nice effort, but it feels wayyyy too "Web 2.0"

The interface feels gaudy.

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

Have the new design on my desk by 12 noon tomorrow.

[–]Balderdash790 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Sorry, Bob, but I'm still working on those darned TPS report.

[–]throwaway-aa21 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

Why not use the Reddit replacement (starts with a r, ends with an s, that I’ll get shadowbanned for if I mention it?)

[–]Ivabighairy10 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

They shut down The Wall subreddit

[–]Imscubbabish0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Thought be some funny jokes :(

[–]n0oo70 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I don't know if they should be called beta fourms , Why not "alpha too"

[–]swamp-bro0 points1 point  (4 children) | Copy

I hope the spooky movie night guy opens up a subforum

[–]modTheRedPike0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

You can open up a tribe for that right now. http://trp.red/

[–]swamp-bro0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

he already has one

[–]thebluthbananas0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

What spooky movie night guy? This sounds interesting

[–]NinoZachetti0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Nice work, gents. I have been bewildered by the format of trp.red but the forum design looks great. The closer you can get it to look like this place the quicker we'll migrate over, I believe.

[–]niceguyputin0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Guys the new forum is too confusing on how to navigate. Since you’ll have a YouTube channel could you record and make a tutorial on how it can be used.
