Posting, and What Not to Do

Today I removed almost every post from the front page. I'm going to camp out on the /new/ tab for a while and continue pruning until I'm happy.

Do not post low quality or low effort posts. If your lesson doesn't exist or doesn't bring something new or interesting to the table, it doesn't belong here.

I wanted to post a few examples of what I removed:

http://archive.is/sOctk - Words are losing meaning, like Honor, Obedience, Respect, and Dignity. Ok, it's a good start. Where's the cause of it? Who is perpetuating the problem? What are the overarching social implications of these changes? How are they used to gain an upper hand on men? All of these details would have made a quality post.

http://archive.is/AZfh9 - Going against the feminine-primary grain will get you shamed in public. Why? What's the play? What's the advantage? Who does this benefit? Why is it used? What are the social implications? How are we to navigate this? What does our future hold? This post touches on a topic but never gets so far as ankle deep.

http://archive.is/IaHxk - If your post is so devoid of any details and nobody would want to hear it in real life, nobody wants to read it on TRP.

http://archive.is/2eVnO, http://archive.is/ljyEE, platitudes like "love yourself" and lists of generic advice are useless and very low effort.

With these, I've removed 4 "Thanks TRP" posts that should be on /r/thanktrp and provided absolutely no insight. (Many of them were simply "I feel better, maybe one day I'll get laid!")

I've removed at least 3 that were simply "I saw an example of what we talk about here on facebook/okcupid/etc, and here's literally just that and no anaylsis whatsoever!"

And then I removed about 10 more that deserve no discussion, they were just complete nonsense or fluff and added nothing.

I will continue deleting. Do not post unless you have something worth saying.

Do not ask the mod team why something was removed. If your item was removed, start reading the sidebar, and don't post again until you're done.

I think the cause of this problem is the western education system rewards paraphrasing the textbook and professor.

[–]Senior ContributorNightwingTRP42 points43 points  (9 children) | Copy

Spot on. Our education system has not been fit for purpose for a long time. The exam systems also don't test whether people understand the material or not.

[–]2Overkillengine16 points17 points  (2 children) | Copy

I guess that depends on what you interpret the purpose of the education system to be.

For some, it appears to be working out quite well. They are getting the system dependent drones they need right on schedule.

[–]Luckyluke232 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

LOL you mean making the $$$$ out of every student?

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

And when too many resource-drainers crash the system, the people who profited from it will bail to a new country and take the money with them.

On the plus side, the techno-barbarism should be TRP land.

[–]Ninja_Wizard_693 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

I went through the US secondary education system. It's pathetic. I really hoped for more, but all I got was a second run through high school.

The culture of asking genuine questions in class is terrible. Your peers think of you as "that guy" or a smart ass. I went to the teacher's office to ask questions and most of the time I got "I'm too busy to help" or "come back tomorrow". When I did come back the next day, I would get the same responses.

I feel cheated.

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

Depends on location. Sweden has average exams last for 4 hours. We went to central europe on exchange we were quite shocked when some exams didnt last more than 40 mins, you basically tested if people could memorize a bunch of shit, not reason with it. But then again, if you have too much space to reason, it turns into a shitshow, as what can be said can allways be said in concise statements.

[–]Krobelux1 point2 points  (3 children) | Copy

Of course it depends on location. They're talking about North America not Europe.

[–]losectrl3 points4 points  (2 children) | Copy

True it was implied, but the original term was western, which usually includes Europe. Sometimes I see the phrase 'this country' around here, I have a little chuckle as I try to guess which of the 229 countries it could be

[–]Krobelux1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

Huh, that's interesting. As someone from Canada, I always assumed the 'west' meant North America, but thinking about it now, when I lived in Vietnam for 2 months they referred to me as a 'westerner' which I suppose would be Europe.

[–]kazaul1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Odd. I've never heard anyone exclude Europe from western. But I live in Europe so maybe that's why.

[–]drallcom3 13 points13 points [recovered] | Copy

It's just lazy fucktards trying to sound alpha and redpill without putting more than 5 mins of work into it.

[–]TRP VanguardJP_Whoregan12 points13 points  (1 child) | Copy

I think the cause of this problem is the western education system rewards paraphrasing the textbook and professor.

I was coming here to say pretty much exactly this. These are kids educated by the "I can do no wrong and everything I say has value" education system. TRP is the exact antithesis of this phenomenon.

Listen, men: TRP is like no other place on Reddit. What you say here can and will be held to scrutiny against what the mod team considers to be "high quality contribution". This is not a "safe space"; this is not a "freeze peach" zone; if you post shit, it will be flushed down the toilet like shit.

/u/redpillschool is the ultimate arbiter of what stays and what goes at TRP. If you don't like it, pack your shit and start your own sub. Posting about how you slapped a girl's ass and she didn't charge you with assault is not post-worthy.

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

Shit.

what about her face...

.... she asked....

[–]stillnoturday3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

Meanwhile in the real education upper grad/master I'm writing 30 pages on something I could give the who,what,where,when, and why in 5.

I appreciate when people are concise but accurate.

Laconic speech is something I think everyone should learn, less is more sometimes.

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

education system:

       "Meaning of Education: 

The term education has different meanings. Each person interprets the word in terms of his past experience, his needs and purposes. The parents, the teachers, administrators, religious leaders, politicians and artists interpret the term education in their own ways. For example, to a student, education means acquisition of knowledge, receiving a degree or diploma. A statesman may claim that it means to train individuals as ideal citizens. A teacher may interpret education as means for creation a new man and new society."

See the problem yet?

Critical analysis is a lost art, along with paradigm shift.

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

Damn, usually on these posts, the first post I see is from someone who completely misses the point, and make an example for people to see immediately after reading the post.

I don't know whether to be happy, or dissapointed

[–]Il128 66 points66 points [recovered] | Copy

I love this community. The shit posting has to stop.

[–]dothemathdothemath30 points31 points  (3 children) | Copy

So true. "Hey, TRP's marketing / psych guy here..." Uh, what?

While this comment chain is funny, I think it's unfair to just take a dump on good ol' u/iamgale . Some of his posts are very good. Even the endorsed contributors have posts that end up really just being complete ass sometimes.

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

Gale has decent posts, when he's not too high on cocainum

He's a bad example for shitposting, most of it comes from nobodies/noobies that don't know how a keyboard works

[–]RealityIsAHypothesis 13 points13 points [recovered] | Copy

If women won't have sex with you without a value exchange, why would men listen to you without it?

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (1 child) | Copy

Maybe we need to go deeper into what we already know?

Do this like a scientific article, give a brief overview of what we have already established (introduction) and add a layer of new knowledge? (experiment -> results) and then discuss it?

Kinda like how we have a established post on shit-tests on the sidebar, but we keep adding on layers to our knowledge of them?

I don't know, just thinking out loud.

Thank you RPS!

I would love to see new contributions along these lines.

[–][deleted] 19 points20 points  (0 children) | Copy

Making TRP great again, sounds good to me.

[–]thefisherman196116 points17 points  (0 children) | Copy

Please keep deleting. More and more trash keeps getting posted here and it's one of the main reasons I'm coming to the subreddit less and less. I am so sick and tired of seeing posts that don't conform to the posting rules. No TLDR and No Lessons Learned is an automatic downvote from me. It's not that hard and it says it RIGHT THERE when you're posting.

[–]abdada10 points11 points  (7 children) | Copy

Any chance you can shitban those posters for a week, too? With the standard warning?

[–]ModCrimsonPerspective[M] 8 points9 points  (6 children) | Copy

Just use the report button. It's our easiest way to remove the trolls and the useless wastes of human sperm.

[–]abdada6 points7 points  (5 children) | Copy

I do that only with the obvious IRTs, really. And the small penis dudes, who sometimes I think are probably just IRTs in disguise.

[–]lakalahehe1 point2 points  (3 children) | Copy

IRT= ?

[–]abdada0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

Try typing race troll in the search here

[–]lakalahehe0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

race troll

I did, it's still unclear to me what the acronym IRt stands for.

[–]Momo_dollar2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

My post was actually an example about gender diseases and how research , funding, and awareness is heavily biased towards women's illnesses while in comparison mens illnesses receive little attention. The mangina screeching with outrage was a secondary point.

[–]2Sepean2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Good job.

[–]Luckyluke232 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

i think you have to be one of the best mods on a sub i have seen, you actually DO something.

I've removed at least 3 that were simply "I saw an example of what we talk about here on facebook/okcupid/etc, and here's literally just that and no anaylsis whatsoever!"

this needs to fucking stop or get it's own sub. you need ONE example. not 100.

also the " thanks trp need to stop too.

I have like 1700 points in trp and I have made a SINGLE POST EVER! once you make it to gaylubeoil levels then you can post, if not DON'T POST

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (7 children) | Copy

How do you have time to do this?

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 47 points48 points  (6 children) | Copy

It's a labor of love.

Respect. Truly.

[–]Endorsed Contributorbogeyd60 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I do the same thing on MRP for the past two weeks. I camp the /new/ and remove all the dumb shit people come out of the woodworks to post. Leave some as an example to others tho.

[–]TWYW1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I just want to say thanks for your work. Sometimes the home page is really full of useless shit with no interesting insights, thanks for cleaning it up.

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

DAFUQ :)))) Ok that was low-tier garbage

[–]NormedVectorSpace1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

90% of the posts here are just a variation on "WOW this buzzfeed article writer cucks her BB husband!" and "how to git jacked in 10 steps" anyway.

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

Not when I see them. They get deleted on sight.

[–]kellykebab2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Thank you thank you thank you. Jesus fuck, that third one. TRP is not your diary.

[–]Appleseed123330 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

One of the many reasons I love this sub. Having a standard of quality equals being a quality subreddit. Great work, and thank you for stating why you ban the posts to all of us.

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

I'd suggest doing more flashback reposts and actively discuss them

[–]1StoicCrane0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Took my first shot at posting on the TRP main forum and fairly pleased with the turnout. Have that much more respect for RPers who churn out quality content on the regular.

Through this experience I figured that if a topic is thought provoking to me as a poster when presented properly it might generate appeal. If a topic lacks a measure of depth it's more or less a waste of time for the poster and the reader so why bother? Much respect to the mods for filtering content.

[–]Brewjo0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

So I'll have to wait till you sleep until I post "10 RP Truths in the movie Car Wash- 1976".

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

You know what, we'll make the exception for just this one. But only if you also include a full breakdown of the social and sexual dynamics of Animal House.

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

this is the main reason I unsubbed from askTRP. so much noise. every other post was "how do I make this girl like me?" 99% of what was being posted has been explained time and time again.

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

You're doing good work sir, I applaud you. Well done. First and foremost this community has always been about building men: build the man and women will follow. Thank you for enforcing the standard.

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

Thank you mods for making this a great place. If I ever post CRAP, please remove it. No one should be offended. You're doing everyone a great service.

[–]murraay_-1 points0 points  (1 child) | Copy

There's clearly some need that isn't being met by the sub as-is. Perhaps we need another board where low-quality content can be moved to, or newbies can sharpen their teeth?

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

The super-newbie questions belong over at /r/askTRP

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

thanks for keep the thread clean, this redpill is about quality of information and that's what make it soo beautiful, for anything else there is asktrp

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

I approve of this initiative. Shitposts are even worse here since it's a learning experience.

[–]BlackMwoyo-1 points0 points  (2 children) | Copy

Can we have a section for new people to ask questions in regards to situations. I'm one of them and would appreciate insight from other eyes.

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

There is a place for it. It's written on the side bar.

[–]Il128[🍰] -1 points0 points  (0 children) | Copy

Somebody want to write this up and post it?

The loony SJW are creating a hit list.
