Reddit Admin are Hellbent on Killing Off Reddit (Deddit)

You've probably noticed less participation on the main sub, and more here on /r/asktrp as Reddit admin have been tweaking the settings to prevent people from accessing our subreddit. Some recent changes:

  • Upvoting content that violates Reddit's wrongthink policy will now end in personal bans.
  • On the new design, you can no longer access quarantined subs without verying an email address. (You can get around this with https://old.reddit.com)
  • Reddit Apps will show /r/theredpill is simply gone or missing unless you're logged in with a previously authenticated red pill account.

These changes are expected as they try to stifle any conversation that challenges the status quo leading up to the 2020 election. We are quite literally the heart and origin of many offshoot communities who have adopted our language to discuss other counter-cultural matters.

This very fact makes me proud because regardless of what happens to our community on reddit, the ideas and memes that we put into motion will live on regardless of our status.

But, we're not down and we're not out. We have big news on the horizon. We have been hard at work completing a very feature-rich alternative to reddit on our off-site meeting place: https://www.trp.red and we're getting very close to opening some of these forums for public use.

Our forums.red updates are shaping up to seriously challenge reddit's usability, and our new flairs feature (users, posts), which spans across both the forums and trp.red tribes, will give moderators (tribe leaders) complete control over their communities.

We've been hard at work putting together advanced mod tools to give tribe leaders the fine-tuned control they need to keep communities running smoothly.

I know that it's been a long time coming but as the already flourishing community on https://www.trp.red would attest, the updates have been big and have improved performance considerably.

Thanks to our supporters we have been able to grow our tech infrastructure to include dedicated database and caching hardware to manage as users migrate over. And that's good news given our 2-5 million monthly hits as of the past few months.

I'm very excited to launch forums in the coming weeks (we have a scheduled maint window March 6th to do yet another big migration to beefier hardware) and will update everybody here accordingly.

In the meantime, please feel free to join our rowdy userbase and make your own tribe, or browse one of our hundreds of tribes already going such as:

GLOGANG

Financial Independence

TheRedPill

SJW/Politics

Bodybuilding

Thanks again for your support and I look forward to seeing you over on https://www.trp.red

Just make a website or a new page on the red pill website that looks exactly like reddit so it has that homely feeling that will generate a shit ton of traffic off of reddit and on to a website controlled by the woke

Take a look at the screenshots in my post (below) this is a source of confusion for some.

Trp.red is similar to twitter in layout and function. Some people dislike this (and that's okay). For people used to twitter, it feels pretty straightforward. But to others, it's very confusing.

The new forums will be pretty close to reddit style- complete with threaded comments. Sidebar will be in the same place as it is on reddit.

Oohh nice, collab with Reddit is fun or a similar platform for mobile and I'm in!! That's looking really good and I definitely appreciate the work you guys are putting in on this. Any plans for a mobile app at all?

[–]CryptoViceroy1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

I don't think it qould be worth the hassle. They'd sink tons of development time into making it, and then Google/Apple would nuke it from the appstore within 6 months.

[–]iwanttoracecars0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Good point, didn't really consider getting banned from the store. Google play likely wouldn't but apple is terrible with their guidelines from what I've heard

[–]Mazzaleen16 points7 points  (0 children) | Copy

100% this

[–]THE_EVIL_EYE_IS_REAL2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

I won't even use reddit anymore if something like this is made

[–]iwanttoracecars0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

Yes, please. Hope you are reading this. I enjoy my night mode and scrolling through post title after post title. They definitely have the format on point here and a copy would be such an easy transition. Voat is a joke

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

The good news is the new layout for our forums looks very similar to reddit:

[–]theUnBannableHulk73 points74 points  (4 children) | Copy

Very true.

Reddit is filled with blue pill beta makes and shrieking cunts as admins who are quick to ban any wrongthink and thoughtcrime.

All comes back to the (((investors))) who buy up the most popular social connection platforms and then enforce their worldview

Gab is better but we need a truly decentralized option

Steve Cuckman is also on the ADL board.

  • There's a user following me around, stalking me, and commenting over on /announcements.

Never forget it was started to defend the honor of a child rapist who was convicted of the murder of his victim

[–]throwawaycunt199715 points16 points  (4 children) | Copy

Man, what a time to be alive where being honest and hard-working is considered counterculture.

Fuck is wrong with people?

[–]liquorbaron15 points16 points  (3 children) | Copy

The people at the top of the food chain want to push a certain narrative using mass media, colleges, and big tech. They want to shape the world to guarantee their control. Questioning this narrative is not desirable to them.

[–]throwawaycunt19972 points3 points  (2 children) | Copy

You’d think the elite would take a lesson from the French Revolution.

[–]liquorbaron0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

These are people that would rather destroy it all then to give up control of the narrative. IF they can't bring about globalism and population replacements then they will bring about it's destruction while they hide underground in their expensive bunkers.

[–]botet_fotet11 points12 points  (0 children) | Copy

Yeah this is getting ridiculous. Good to see the mods trying to stay ahead of this bs! You know censorship is rampant when a subreddit called ‘unpopular opinion’ gets posts deleted and people banned for posting unpopular opinions.

[–]Stupyyy8 points9 points  (0 children) | Copy

They said we are a HATE group, lmao.

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy

These days Twitter regularly sends me emails begging me to come back. They never used to do that. They've been alienating and banning and censoring their users for so long now they're crashing.

This stupid business model only ends one way.

[–]legitniga5 points6 points  (1 child) | Copy

The trp.red layout is bad man, nobody is gonna use it. Look at some popular forums and adopt their style, or make it more similar to Reddit.

Part of the reason TRP got popular was because of how user friendly reddit app is. So if possible plz make new website similar to Reddit’s interface. Thanks!!

[–]WiterS26 points7 points  (12 children) | Copy

Much worse are moderators endorsing shitposts like the one on the coronavirus and muslim propaganda, and threatening members with bans for disagreeing.

That stuff corrodes TRP from inside.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] -4 points-3 points  (11 children) | Copy

I was looking for the body of work you produced to bring TRP value so I could give your opinion the weight it deserved.

Meanwhile, GLO puts a lot of time into his posts. Are all of them out-of-the-park? Not necessarily. But they sure are better than your nothing.

[–]TigerXtrm4 points5 points  (5 children) | Copy

What, so not having contributed a lengthy post themselves means they can't criticize others for what is obviously some far out bullshit?

Don't you think it's extremely, and I really mean extremely, hypocritical of the moderation team to be screaming at Reddit for censorship and 'wrongthink' policy, but to then do the exact same thing on their own subreddit? There's literally no difference. People are being banned from the sub for disagreeing with the content of someone's post.

Don't let TRP turn into an echo chamber, please. Nothing good has ever come of that. See any blackpill or incel community ever if you want an example of that. We're supposedly all adults here who can have a mature discussion while respectfully disagreeing with one another.

[–]Modredpillschool[S,M] 0 points1 point  (4 children) | Copy

What, so not having contributed a lengthy post themselves means they can't criticize others for what is obviously some far out bullshit?

Yes, that's exactly what it means. If you're unable or unwilling to put in the effort to make things better, and all you do is bitch at others to make it better.. well, there's a better subreddit for you.

Don't let TRP turn into an echo chamber, please

Says the guy asking me to censor our contributors.

Don't you think it's extremely, and I really mean extremely, hypocritical of the moderation team to be screaming at Reddit for censorship and 'wrongthink' policy, but to then do the exact same thing on their own subreddit?

Absolutely not. Subreddits have topics. If you start posting kitten pictures, then that will be removed as well. Why? Because it's off topic.

Now, this operates under the understanding that there is somewhere to post kitten pictures. Reddit, on the other hand, is trying to prevent the conversation happening in any sub.

Not only am I not hypocritical for embracing tight moderation in a particular sub, but since I see the writing on the wall for this and many other topics, I've invested heavily into a life raft which can host ideas I personally disagree with.

Think you know better than us? Make a "TigerXtrm TRP" tribe on trp.red and show us. That's how anti-censorship I really am.

[–]TigerXtrm0 points1 point  (3 children) | Copy

I said the literal opposite.

What, prey tell, did you think we should do with the so-called "shitposts" to solve your inner angst?

Don't pretend it wasn't a call for censorship.

[–]TigerXtrm1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

That wasn't my comment, lol.

As far as I'm concerned people can post whatever shit they want, no matter how stupid and retarded it may be. But for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. If people disagree with the sentiment expressed in a post then they should be allowed to voice that opinion instead of getting banned for it.

I mean, is this a place where only the pre-approved opinions of the modding team are allowed or is there room for discussion and disagreement? That's what this boils down to.

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

You're disagreeing with me right now.

People are free to disagree with anybody. But we do enforce decorum. If you insult the endorsed contributors instead of respectfully disagree, you'll get the boot.

[–]WiterS24 points5 points  (4 children) | Copy

That's the fallacy of authority. Not an argument. Even Einstein was wrong.

[–]Modredpillschool[S,M] 0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

Some nobody bitches about quality but refuses to put in effort to improve quality?

I'm not appealing to authority. I'm telling you to carry your own weight.

I know that's an idea lost on this generation but really... what the heck do you think TRP is about?

[–]WiterS20 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

I'm not appealing to authority. I'm telling you to carry your own weight.

...

That's fallacy of authority. You are saying that I do not have authority.

Meanwhile, GLO puts a lot of time into his posts.

That's fallacy of authority. You are saying that a GLO shitpost is justified due to fallacy of authority.

Are all of them out-of-the-park?

That's non sequitur.

But they sure are better than your nothing.

Fallacy of authority again

Repeating your nonsense doesn't make it so.

You are saying that a GLO shitpost is justified due to fallacy of authority.

No, I'm saying that the people who put in the effort have more pull over whiners like you who have contributed zero and think people should just do what you say.

Fallacy of authority again

No fallacy here. I am the authority. You don't have to like it. My sub, my rules. Contribute or gtfo.

[–]BPasFuck-2 points-1 points  (0 children) | Copy

Cool story bro. You've convinced me! The sky really is falling.

[–]Ivabighairy11 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

I registered and now can’t sign in. Should I take the hint?

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

Do you get an error message? Make sure you have 3rd party cookies on. The sign-in connects you to forums.red and trp.red

[–]mickenrorty1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

Fuck this website, I’ll delete my account and never return the moment TRP.red is ready

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

While the forums haven't been launched yet, feel free to venture over to https://www.trp.red The community is already quite active.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 1 point2 points  (3 children) | Copy

These are the real numbers my friend. And part of the reason the forums have been so delayed is because we had to redo the entire infrastructure. I discuss the process on our patreon but essentially we added 3 new servers hosting database, redis caching, and http.

The new platform is much much quicker and handles the increase in traffic quite nicely. Forums.red is still on the old platform and you can see the speed differences.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

I just had somebody asking me about the numbers so I looked at my stats, and I forgot to add forums.red traffic to the numbers.

If we add forums.red and trp.red traffic, it's closer to 8 million / month.

[–]LordFa90 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Not sure if it counts but my posts on the main sub keep getting auto deleted upon posting

On one hand it could be something I did (fuck if I know)

On the other it could be a reddit wide thing because it has definately happened more than once in more than one place

[–]Rimefang0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

Curious, there gonna be an app for this site?

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

We will be opening an API for any app devs who want to.

[–]Gr33d3ater-2 points-1 points  (6 children) | Copy

This is the gayest most cucked write up I’ve ever read on here. And that’s saying a lot. If you need online communities to boost your views because your racist bullshit is getting you raised eyebrows at work, it’s time to cut the victim card crap and stop being racist.

This isn’t a place to discuss how cucked and retarded Donald Trump is, and how destructive he’s been to our country. This isn’t a place to talk about how bluepill and beta conservative policies and ideals are.

Also it makes me wonder why you’re so pissed that this is supposed to stop bots for Trump, and I guess Bernie too, at the door. I’m sick of them. I’m sick of arguing with people who are only commenting shit like “sore fucking loser” about Trump to anyone who doesn’t like him and makes a good point. They’re a plague on humanity.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 1 point2 points  (5 children) | Copy

[–]The_Masterbaitor-2 points-1 points  (4 children) | Copy

That couldn’t be a more cucked response to that.

Inb4 permanently banned for hurting this particularly emotional mod’s fee fees.

And I got banned for hurting the precious sensibilities of /u/RedPillschool

Poor sensitive baby.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 1 point2 points  (3 children) | Copy
