You may have noticed, new posting is locked at the moment. Normal Posting will resume Saturday.

I'm starting our new collection of posts this evening, but I'm putting them up for the day of Friday. We're doing one full day of theory posts and making our way down the sidebar.

For those who have read the sidebar, it's always nice to get a brush up in what's written there, and perhaps it's a great opportunity to chime in with your insights as to what you've learned since you last read the side bar.

For those who haven't read the sidebar, leave a comment below so we can give you a complimentary 30-day ban to give you ample time to get started! ;)

Theory Friday Starts Now!

Opened up the sub this morning... saw a sea of posts from RPS. Thought to myself "it's finally happened. He's flipped. The stress must have been too much and somebody posted something particularly cretinous to drive him over the edge."

"it's finally happened. He's flipped. The stress must have been too much and somebody posted something particularly cretinous to drive him over the edge."

Heheh, I think you'll know when I flip!

I've been debating this idea for a few weeks, and after removing a larger number of posts than usual last night I decided it was time for a hard reset on the community.

[–]102117991070 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

This is a very good idea. Thank you for doing this. Do you think there is value in doing this regularly? Once a week, or for longer periods of time like a week a month etc?

I re-read the RPsidebar.pdf and I'm now re-reading The Red Pill Handbook as well. This is a good way to force us to read all this material before posting(assuming people are not just waiting for the gates of heaven to open again to post shit again.

lol, wearing Kleenex boxes for shoes and peeing into jars as we speak

He was a quiet man...

Good movie by the way.

[–]Borsao661 point2 points  (2 children) | Copy

Agreed. A undervalued masterpiece. If you haven't read the history behind what it took to get the movie made, its a worthwhile read.

[–]∞ Mod | RP Vanguardbsutansalt0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

Huh. I was referencing this one actually, but I'll give that a read.

[–]Borsao660 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Ok, now I gotta watch that one. The John Wayne one is a shining example of an Alpha 1.0. Its one of the few 'oldies' that I like.

[–]Rasalom720 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

I haven't clipped my toe nails since I started TRP.

[–]CornyHoosier0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I'm glad to know I wasn't the only one.

Even better is that I've let my neckbeard grow so large that I can save money on tin-foil hats by just spray-painting it silver and flipping it over my scalp.

Sadly my trilby (not fedora you fucking casuals) gets a little silver around the rim because of that. It's so cool though that most women don't mind.

[–]Senior Contributordr_warlock15 points16 points  (3 children) | Copy

Make it a whole week. Too much garbage is piling up.

We'll call it Reflection Week.

[–]SureImShore2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

We'll call it Reflection Week.

This is a great idea.

I believe it would be a net positive if there was a way to limit posting and commenting by time subscribed. 15 days to comment, 30 days to post; something like that. The absolute best would be a sidebar quiz.

Good call RPS, I'm looking forward to re-reading everything this weekend.

deleted What is this?

[–]102117991070 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I just commented on redpillschool's comment on this. I would be in favour of doing this once a month, for a week long. After that, any post that doesn't give the reader the idea that they read the sidebar and all posts should be deleted.

[–]Battle-Scars3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

Thank you for the respite from the " I hate all women and you're a beta cuck faggot crowd" I would be happy to see a week of reflection and thought without any new posts other than what the mods want to throw out. Breath of fresh air.

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

Couldn't commend the idea enough.

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (2 children) | Copy

I like this idea because it makes us talk to each other in the theory thread

[–]1mrthrowaway4133 points4 points  (1 child) | Copy

I like this idea because everyone else likes this idea.

[–]Docbear641 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

IT's good because it gets rid of some of the special snowflake post and re-iterates that our goal isn't to bitch about our exes and shitty female friends, or to have men to help validate our feelings our goals here are to learn , become better men , and further develop ourselves. The issue with a proliferation of new people ( and this includes myself) is that it entitles the new guys to feel like they need to contribute immediately when most of us need to just sit down , shut up , and swallow the pill . This is good just like we need to guide our women it only makes sense that the older Red pill guys have to help guide and direct the flow of newbies so that we can craft the community that will last long and hopefully outlive all of us .

[–]NeoreactionSafe1 point2 points  (2 children) | Copy

If login counts are like ratings then showing "reruns" (sidebar reposts) isn't doing so well.

Something to keep in mind.

(normally it's more like 700... right now 562)

 

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 4 points5 points  (1 child) | Copy

We usually only get near 700 when there's a controversial thread. I'm okay with losing a few people while they read the sidebar.

[–]Yrenq1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Well that's awfully convenient. I take a break from TRP because sorting the wheat from the chaff is too much of a pain in the arse, then I reappear on the day that this happens. Awesome.

[–]RPsage1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

I'd be down if it extended all weekend.

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

Depending on today's performance, I might extend or do something similar for the next few days.

[–][deleted] 1 points1 points | Copy

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 4 points5 points  (2 children) | Copy

/r/redpillwomen might be a better fit.

[–]filitantmeminist1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

Damn it. It was a joke. Now I just feel bad, haha!

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

Sorry, we filter through hundreds of comments a day. It's hard to read sarcasm!

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

I for one think this is great.

[–]Kid_Crimson0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

u/redpillschool may the gods of the copybook headings smile upon you my son!

This is a very much needed apéritif or digestif! ...depending on whether the Red Pill is in your hand or your stomach. Well done!

[–]Kingoffistycuffs0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

You are a good captain RPS. Thanks for putting in all the effort that you do. Know that it is appreciated.

[–]RP_Vergil0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Thank you for the lockdown, it's refreshing to focus on the basics I've read since a year ago here to remember why I started swallowing the pill.

Too much Post based on anger and too much "I think I found something new" has been coming up for the past few months with a big dosage of circle jerking on what is "Alpha" and what is "Beta".

To quote one of my favorite chinese writer : Before you go Abstract, learn your basic strokes.

[–]1raceAround1260 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Personally I think this is a great idea. I'd suggest leave the post lock on for 7 days and any discussions in the respective threads should be on that topic only.

There's always AskTRP for burning questions and I'm sure your field reports can wait a week.

Hear hear, mods!
