Theory Weekend Continues - Posting Threads Is Temporarily Locked

Reddit View
April 23, 2016

Due to the great success yesterday, we've decided to extend the Theory Posting for the weekend. We'll be periodically adding more theory posts as we go, so please join in the discussion and take some time out to read up if you haven't already.

Our goal is eventually to link these discussions in the sidebar so that our side-bar articles are no longer sitting in a vacuum, but instead have open discussion surrounding them.

Make sure you visit /new to see all the posts as they arrive.

Regular Posting will Resume Monday.

I'm an advocate for a whole week of Theory. People are arguing which video game is the most Alpha. If that's not a Pharasee I don't know what is.

What is this?

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (5 children) | Copy

I would not be opposed to requiring posts to be approved if I didn't know what a shit-show it would be for the mods.

[–]tb876702 points3 points  (4 children) | Copy

Need more manpower to pull that off, and checks to make sure one mod can't deny a lot of people their voice even if it matches what is taught here at TRP.

[–]Senior Contributor: "The Court Jester"GayLubeOil9 points10 points  (2 children) | Copy

There are no checks. The Red Pill has always been a fuedalistic dictatorship. I am grand Duke GayLubeOil of Lubingsberg.

When you upscale anything to the point of needing multiple people to manage it quality loss is unavoidable. If that happens. If this is a feudal dictatorship I assume your county produces all the lube of the land for royal favors? Say ye what laws are in place for bedding peasant wives in your district?

[–]Krainz0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I want to Agree and Amplify like you. Holy shit.

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

Why not just have one or two approval only days a week. It'll give a time of pure quality content, whilst still allowing democracy the rest of the week.

Maybe reduce the workload further by allowing endorsed contributors to bypass approval.

this and it's not even close.

can we get a sub for the " don't be like this betta fag" and the " all women are the same " posts?

I know we have a subreddit for the " thanks TRP" posts.

I'll tell ya'll what the fuck isn't "Alpha".

Abandoning something you enjoy because you're afraid the other children will call you a nerd at recess.

[–]Endorsed ContributorMarsupian14 points15 points  (2 children) | Copy

Gaming like watching tv or netflix is a very passive and unproductive way to spend your free time. Not bad for an hour a day type enjoyment but way too many people waste too much time on them. I have personally been hooked on gaming and that shit ruined my discipline and had me drifting towards depression. For me its either no gaming or way too much gaming so I quit. Not because I might be called a nerd but because it makes me a better person.

If you spend more than 2 hours a day gaming Id take a moment to reflect on what it brings to your life and consider cutting back a quitting.

[–]Expectations11 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Id have to agree, video games are good relaxation for those already established in game / pickup. But not for those who need to make much bigger leaps and bounds and play "catch up" so to speak.

[–]NotUpToAnythingGood0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Eh, I play video games by myself, with my kids, with my whole family. It's not just an anti-social avenue.

We also discuss things we see in media (pausing the shows as required).

I still workout, go to my day job, etc. I have the rest of my day-to-day responsibilities to take care of. Wasting time doesn't get them done.

[–]tb876702 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Agree, this is a great break from the slight gradual decline in quality we have been getting in posts. Also a lot guys are busy with their game on the weekend and out doing stuff, let's do a whole week so everyone can come in.

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

H-hey guys am I still alpha if I main support in League of Legends?

Please respond...

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

The thing I always enjoyed about TRP and the manosphere is the vast amount of input it has. TRP is a toolbox to pick and choose your strats. I liked going to boldanddetermined.com to get one type of advice, then going to goodlookingloser.com and getting a completely different look at being masculine.

No offence to the mods but you guys do have somewhat of a "Group think" which limits the breadth of your advice and experience, r/theredpill's biggest help to me was introducing me to all the websites and blogs out there.

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

Not sure why we'd take offense- we have personally added manosphere blogs to the sidebar and to our theory posts.

They have always been on topic.

If you don't like the content, you're always welcome to contribute.

[–]Senior EndorsedMattyAnon9 points10 points  (1 child) | Copy

I'd like to see more of a shout-out to asktrp, and EC's encouraged to spend more time there.... otherwise next week we'll be back to fielding questions here from noobies like "how can I get with this one special girl who blinked at me this one time"

[–]Senior ContributorMentORPHEUS0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I second that, I spend time in that sub too. It would probably help to have more FAQ threads in the sidebar over there. Your post, If your question is, "There is this one girl..." you're doing it wrong! is a sterling example.

[–]ITHOUGHTYOUMENTWEAST2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Theory weekend or even theory week is absolutely fantastic. It's time to shut up, sit down, and look over what made this place what it is and what our core came from.

[–]razgrim1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Praise the sun, we needed this allignment. Thank you RPS!
