Endorsed Contributor Weekend

Reddit View
October 7, 2016

Good morning folks,

This weekend the moderation team has decided to try something new as a shot in the arm for some quality content. Starting tonight, new posts will be locked down to only Endorsed Contributors. Everybody can still participate in the comments, but new posts will be strictly ECS.

We will lift this policy Monday Morning and continue our regularly scheduled posting.

In the mean time, we encourage ECS to post away.

For those who are not ECs, here are some ideas for the weekend:

  • Go out, get laid.
  • Spend this weekend reading what the ECs have to post
  • Join in the discussions
  • Join us on TRP.RED for #TrickleTruth month
  • Start a free podcast

Also as a note, during EC weekend, I'm re-enabling links. Use them wisely gents.

Love this idea. I've been gradually coming to TRP less and less lately because there's like one good post a week. I imagine this can really kickstart more quality content.

[–]Senior Endorsed ContributorCopperFox3c13 points14 points  (12 children) | Copy

Wish we had some warning on this RPS (or maybe we did and I missed it). Most of my posts take a week or so to write and edit.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 13 points14 points  (10 children) | Copy

Hey, sorry, we have been discussing it briefly in modmail over the past week.

If you feel left out, don't you fret. Repost some quality old ones, we'll surely be doing another one of these so we'll give you guys more notice next time.

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

you should do it once a month if not more...

[–]jackandjill221 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Interesting, show us your best.

[–]TheThingsIThink 2 points2 points [recovered] | Copy

then consider doing it next week so the ECs have something to post

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 11 points12 points  (6 children) | Copy

We're not cancelling this weekend.

[–]TheThingsIThink 1 points1 points [recovered] | Copy

Didn't think you would. Is this going to be a monthly or quarterly thing? It would run a lot smoother once the boat gets up on the water

[–]Senior ContributorMentORPHEUS9 points10 points  (4 children) | Copy

We're not cancelling this weekend.

Maintains frame

More notice might have been nice, but of all the men who are up to a good challenge, why not the Red Pill ECs?

I'm looking forward to a great weekend worth of content. Good idea, RPS!

[–]TheThingsIThink 4 points4 points [recovered] | Copy

This is a great idea and its following the Great Idea Evolution we see in Corperate Land.

Someone comes up with a great idea, the board (mods) discusses it among themselves and sets a go live date without looping in section heads (ECs). Some aspie quant in the ranks mentions the bugs and the BOD sticks to their timeline. Go live date comes and passes- the project is declared a rousing success by the BOD while leaving a great deal of value that proper prior planing would create.

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

Funny you should mention aspie quants

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 3 points4 points  (1 child) | Copy

Quit your bitching, it's a new idea, and ECs will have plenty of time to catch our next round.

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

Yeah, had a rushed one myself. Should have gone into the archives.

[–]NaughtyFred3 points4 points  (16 children) | Copy

Hmmm...no-one has figured out why this weekend event is really happening...or just isn't mentioning it.

I wonder if this comment will get deleted since it may appear I know too much.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 3 points4 points  (14 children) | Copy

Why do you think it's happening?

[–]NaughtyFred5 points6 points  (10 children) | Copy

Same reason something similar happened a while ago...public exposure of Red Pill in this case the release of the movie. This weekend is all about PR/damage limitation.

Endorsed contributor weekend fills the front page with posts more cerebral and balanced than the usual "How to train your plate to be an anal slut" "Cheating bitch is cheating on her beta loser BF with me" level of posts.

This sanitised/whitewashed version of the usual fare gives the curious visitor who probably won't read past the front page the best impression of what the sub/philosophy is about.

I wonder if I'm right will you still say I'm wrong.

[–]Senior EndorsedMattyAnon5 points6 points  (6 children) | Copy

I wonder if I'm right will you still say I'm wrong

Awwww don't preempt us ;)

My guess: to improve the signal to noise ratio

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (5 children) | Copy

Yup. All the complainers in here about how TRP is going downhill. they had a good long while to post their own quality.


[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (4 children) | Copy

Have the mods thought about keep a heavy hand on quality permanently? Every fat ass that stops eating fast food for a week and hits the gym once thinks he has THE ANSWER to everyone's cuckoldry.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (3 children) | Copy

ratio of posters to moderators, needs more conrtibution from the userbase. It reflects our efforts. Reporting low quality posts, if even 10% of the userbase would do consistently, would drastically change this subreddit.

Think about it, 10% of active users taking a role in the subreddit, all it would take. Reports, downvotes, posting value to drown out the noise...

[–]haxurmind0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

A quicker turn around between report and mod action would help as well, I've seen some reports go beyond 24 hours before being moderated (deleted). By this time, the damage has been done and a good comment chain has been derailed. Hence the signal to noise ratio.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

If the mods were available like that, you'd have to wonder if they were really red pill.

This isn't a job

[–]haxurmind0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

If the mods were available like that, you'd have to wonder if they were really red pill.

I wouldn't wonder, either they are or they are not and the merits of that rests with them. That however does not diminish the value of their contributions, otherwise we'd be venturing into logical fallacies.

Regardless; more mods with a shorter turnover rate on reported posts (I'm not expecting service within 60 seconds but more reasonable than a day would be fine IMO) would improve the signal to noise ratio.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

What movie?

[–]NaughtyFred4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (0 children) | Copy

Note the expert pressure flip by RPS

[–]throw17453 2 points2 points [recovered] | Copy

Because the quality of posts in the last couple weeks has been low, and if this works it could be a useful to employ again as a technique to refocus, and serves the dual benefit of encouraging endorsed contributors to write and contribute as their posting will have more visibility.

Is my guess.

[–]Endorsed ContributorAuvergnat12 points13 points  (5 children) | Copy

I've started compiling a list of ECs to add as reddit "friends" for the same purpose of creating my own "curated" version of the sub. Any chance you'd have a list already so I don't waste my time? If not I'll post my list when it's complete

[–]Senior EndorsedMattyAnon8 points9 points  (2 children) | Copy

creating my own

What makes you think there isn't such a place ;)

[–]Senior Contributordr_warlock6 points7 points  (1 child) | Copy

Any EC that blows the whistle has men in dark robes pay him a visit.

[–]2 Senior Endorsed Contributorvengefully_yours2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

The guys who came to see me wore white suits and had a funny jacket with them.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] -2 points-1 points  (1 child) | Copy

for the same purpose of creating my own "curated" version of the sub

Great idea, pull as many quality contributors as you can away from helping others.

[–]Endorsed ContributorAuvergnat5 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy

you probably misunderstood my point. I"m not wanting to create another subreddit. Just to use the "friends" feature to be able to stalk all their submissions and comments

[–]1Soarinc6 points7 points  (7 children) | Copy

Great idea, this will allow TRP to deal with some of its massive growth of new members by emphasizing at least a couple days per month ALL new posts shall be very high in terms of quality.

[–]magus6782 points3 points  (6 children) | Copy

ALL new posts shall be very high in terms of quality.

I wish this were true. I honestly am curious what the vetting process is for someone to get that flair.

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

I honestly am curious what the vetting process is for someone to get that flair.

The mod team makes the decision.

[–]magus6783 points4 points  (3 children) | Copy

I'm aware that it is assigned. I was referring more to the criteria I guess.

Largely I would say the ECs are assigned well enough, but there are a few that have made me wonder how they snuck into the lot.

Obviously you can assign it to whoever you like for whatever reason, but it "damages the brand" so to speak, and I get the sense that is something you mean to protect.

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

Yeah, after that post idolizing Nate Parker I'm skeptical. The people who are the most red pill are posting on the weekend instead of having a social life? Okay.

[–]angryguy44447 points8 points  (0 children) | Copy

We shoult do an endorsed contributor year.

[–]Senior EndorsedMattyAnon1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

something new

I'm sure we've done something like this before ...

[–]Heathcliff-- 2 points2 points [recovered] | Copy

Starting from when? I was just about to post a FR.

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (0 children) | Copy

I'm sure you'll still have it on Monday. Will give you a day to better flush it out.

Looking forward to it

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

Tonight. Post away.

[–]NiceTryDisaster1 point2 points  (4 children) | Copy

Can this be implemented: Endorsed contributors can post new posts straight away, whereas regular subscribers posts get withhold until verified by mod team to be of adequate quality?

[–][deleted] 10 points11 points  (2 children) | Copy

That would be a lot of work for a few moderators already swamped with spam.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (1 child) | Copy

Maybe it's time to add more moderators? TRP is approaching to 200k subscribers.

[–]∞ Mod | RP Vanguardbsutansalt3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

In a sense this is already the case as the spam doodad puts thread in timeout all the time until we can review them. As always though, please continue to report threads/comments that do not meet our standards and we'll review them as time allows.

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

Getting laid is the correct course of action.

[–]fingerthemoon0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I think this is a good idea to restrict posting and wouldn't mind if it was every weekend. I also think posting should be more restricted in general, like only people who have been subscribed for over six months or a year. If mods don't like that idea, maybe there could be a special flair for new members? Personally, I'm not that interested in reading posts from those who haven't fully digested trp and seen the bigger picture yet.

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

There is only one thing to do this weekend. You will hold in all of my bodily fluids, and climb and sit at the top of Mt. Everest, surviving the extreme cold and thinning air using Wim Hoff's meditation and a dwindling, rusted oxygen tank. You will listen to this song on repeat, while you await Peter Dinklage, who dressed in chainmail armor and using nanotechnology to raise and command an army of the dead skilled in Muay Thai, who have come to take a thumb drive from you with the only schematics in existence for a high-powered cannon that uses both magnetism and gamma radiation. And when Tyrion's legion of corpses have all fallen and you cross blades, lightning will reign down from the sky and strike you both. But you will be the only one who remains standing, blinded, with the hilt of the katana melted your my hands. Forevermore a cursed ronin of wilderness and shadow, half ghost and half man.

This will only be the first few days of your MGTOW training.

[–]SirCockburn0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Can this be changed to all the time?

[–]TRP VanguardtrpSenator0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Dude, RPS give some headsup with this in the future. I haven't been around a lot in the last year but I am planning on doing a really deep post on economics and helping these guys become financially independent.

[–]Nergaal0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

How you become EC?

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

Contributors with consistently high quality contributions are tapped by moderators, or awarded points by other ECs.

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

TRP is the best!

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