New TRP.RED Website Archive Tool

When submitting links to TRP you've noticed that we recommend archiving the site using archive.today or archive.is to prevent the site from changing the text or going dark some day in the future.

The mods and I have been discussing how to make TRP less vulnerable to the ever-increasing censorship and memory-holing that takes place across the internet and have decided to launch a new tool (still in beta) that should help assist in preventing articles we discuss from vanishing off the face of the earth.

If you'd like to give our tool a try, it's free at TRP.RED/archive.php if you log in and click "URL Archive" under My Content.

This is how the archive links appear when you use them.

Let me know how it works for you. I am aware some sites don't work too well with it (new york times being the biggest offender).

Our goal is to keep as much of TRP independent of widespread censorship as we can. This is just another piece to our puzzle as we roll out new features.


If you haven't been over to the Podcasts section in a while, we have some fresh material being uploaded this week, head on over to TRP Podcasts or maybe upload your own!


As always, if you want to support the efforts: You can support TRP.RED by joining our Patreon. or Donate To Our Bitcoin Address: 1Hyyva2G5aCJwNqYToGoCCGATVNMB81zk7 QR CODE HERE

I'll check it out. I have a 1TB external drive on my home desktop, so I see lots of archiving in my future.

Not sure where else to post this, but one of the subs that was quarantined alongside us has been put on the chopping block.

Wait, so CA appealed and the admins told them that they didn’t? That’s fucked

It got worse after that, place got stacked with BluePill's mod team then shut down when the users fought back.

That's probably a test run for what they'll do to us.

Will we be able to add valuable posts to the forum backup (specifically talking about those which weren't backed up since they didn't have significant upvotes)?

We've changed our method of archival and have been able to fill in the missing gaps in TRP history. Because of that, we now have 106,184 archived posts, and over 2.6 comments archived from TRP alone.

Our archive script runs on a semi-regular basis to wait for posts to gain comments before grabbing them. You'll probably notice a few week gap at the end as the process continues, but rest assured we should have damn close to the entire subreddit backed up at this point.

internet

Spell Internet with a capital i. It's a proper noun. The common noun internet means something different. The definite article "the" is a clue that Internet is a proper noun. You didn't write "that takes place across <i>an</i> internet".

internet internet internet internet.

In fact, the earliest use of the word, cited in the Oxford English Dictionary from 1974, was with a lowercase i. Initially, there were many internets—the word was used to refer to any computer network comprising or connecting a number of smaller networks; it later came to refer specifically to the global network we know today, which was distinguished as “the Internet” as opposed to “an internet”. It isn’t uncommon for words to take on a capitalized form in a particular meaning regarded as a proper noun (for instance, Americans style the foundational document of their federal government as “the Constitution”); however, in the case of “the Internet”, by the mid-1990s the original need for disambiguation was largely obsolete, and the capitalization convention began to strike some writers and editors as unnecessary, dated, and aesthetically unappealing.

> began to strike some writers and editors as unnecessary, dated, and aesthetically unappealing.

It may strike them that way, but they are still wrong. Why is it necessary to capitalize America? Even in lower case, it would not be ambiguous. Internet is still a proper noun.

Now if you want to remove upper case from the English language, I'll support you. The grammar involving upper case could be replaced by other grammatical rules, but until then capitalize proper nouns.



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