Lately I have noticed some off-topic and varying levels of usefulness in the posts between the two subs, and I'm offering some clarification for everyone on the pupose of MRP and askMRP.
Marriedredpill is the space to discuss RP strategies, produce field reports, and provide value to each other from within a committed relationship. It's since grown to encompass a few other properties:
- Demographically older, and all the nuances that comes with it
- Generally focused more on pragmatism, and less on over arching systems. Getting your own house in order, and not worry so much about society crumbling around you
- A much lower tolerance for self pity; our one-victim-puke rule
- No fat chicks
When I first started my MAP, there wasn't an askMRP. It's still not universally accepted among the readership. It was a solution to the simple questions How do we filter low quality, un researched, value leeching questions without turning MRP into The Oliver twist forum, always asking for more?. Is there any way to polish those turds into something useful?
So askMRP was created. I'm surprised people post there as much as they do, it's always been I'm too lazy to start, so I need spoonfeeding. the users who respond, mostly do so because teaching a thing is the best way to learn a thing.
So, we are where we are. regression to the mean. Having said that:
Questions end with a question mark. If you post a field report or a navel gazing post onto askMRP, we both know you know it's shitty quality, and think it goes into the shit pile. It doesn't. Your post would have been better in the weekly OWS thread to begin with (that stickied post thats always updated), you're just too lazy to post more than one navel gaze before you Rambo your shit.
If it's a field report, I don't give a shit if it's not up to Caddy McCadderson standards. If it's got some value for another person reading it, post it to MRP, thats the point. If you have a theory that ties together multiple field reports, it goes in MRP. If you're worried about getting grief, don't. I could give a 100% foolproof guide to banging supermodels, and someone would complain that superdupermodels will see right through it. Taking grief with a little good grace is good practice anyways.
OWS posts aren't about what you wish you could do, or what you'll do tomorrow, it's about what you've done, and fleshing out your process. Others chime in to teach what they've learned, and point out the blind spots.
End of the day, if someone reading it can carve a success out of their life with the information therein, it's an MRP post. Don't worry if it's not 10/10, none of us will ever post a magnum opus, so don't worry it's not. If you have a question and can't be arsed to learn, askmrp and hope that someone else needs to refine their understanding of the same thing. OWS is for action, not pontification
