No Participation Rules

May 17, 2013

Well folks, looks like the reddit admin are looking for more witches to hunt. While we never really enforced it before, our general rule was - if you're linking to another sub: link to the no-participation version of it by adding the subdomain np. to the url.

We are now making this mandatory. From this point forward, any link to another sub that doesn't include the np. subdomain will be removed immediately.

What is no participation?

No participation is a passive way of telling the sub you're visiting that you will respect their wishes not to participate. It disables voting, and often disables comments- if the sub has no-participation rules turned on.

But what if I'm a member of that community?

I assume if you're a member you can comment and vote, but that's up to the admins of reddit- who honestly haven't given moderators any clear rules whatsoever. We're basically just bumping around in the dark waiting for them to get angry and go on a banning rampage again.

How do I use it?

Just add np (in place of www) to the beginning of your url.

Is The Red Pill Using No Participation?

Yes, to an extreme level. Whether or not you arrive on a np. link, we have all participation disabled for non-subscribers. This has dramatically toned down vote brigades and trolling.

God that was painful, painful to read.

Well i lie, i didn't read it, just skim read, and wondered just how easy it is for women to make one or two comments and get the entire system of reddit on bended knee for them.

[–]NeedsAHero7 points8 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

I never thought I'd see an admin kiss ass to a user. What kind of fucked up blackmail does SRS have on them?

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

The policies of Conde Nast, itself.

what a faggot

Wow, what a total piece of shit that guy is

In other news, if the reddit admin ever stumble across this, my suggestion to you: You already have the power to add no-participation mode, and make it mandatory for all inter-reddit links. You don't do it. It's curious to me why you'd ban for it but not make it a basic feature.

It's curious to me why you'd ban for it but not make it a basic feature.

It's just more leverage for admins when they want to get rid of a reddit they don't like. The difference between 'we banned that crowd, because we don't like them' versus 'we banned that crowd, because they broke the rules (and we don't like them, but that's not the main point)' is pretty huge.

[–]rapscallionx3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

I thought reddit was cool... guess I was wrong.

[–]nonservator6 points7 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

One of the most important things I've learned: If you don't want someone to do something, don't tell them to not do it. Instead, make it impossible for them to do it.

[–]Audrion1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

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

Or at least marginally costly in time.

[–]ReggieReddit19 points20 points  (5 children) | Copy Link

Thank you. Some members of TRP are way out of line with comments on linked posts. Calling some bluepills girlfriend a slut really isn't going to help anyone. If you genuinely want to help bluepillers you have to be less abrasive and more respectful.

[–]Reve_9 points10 points  (4 children) | Copy Link

who says they want to help them?

[–]1Ill_mumble_that4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

I help those who help themselves!

In all seriousness, I have zero interest in helping someone that isn't willing to completely change their mindset and lifestyle. It's a waste of time.

When most of these bluepillers go looking for "help" they really just looking for affirmation. They want to hear that they are right and did the right thing and it is everyone else's fault. They might as well go cry to their mom, because she'd give them a pat on the back and tell them how much they mean to her and how much potential they have and how nobody else sees it. This is not the kind of help that they need and things will not change with it.

[–]Ragnar093 points4 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

Exactly. We point out reality. If she is a slut we call her a slut.

[–]electric33l1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

We point out reality

aka immature bullshit. How old are you, 14? Grow up, you're not fucking Morpheus. Don't act all high and mighty because you figured out the basics of human nature.

[–]Ragnar09-1 points0 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

But I can't help it

[–]MSoftHarem[M] 10 points11 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

If you see your threads randomly disappear it will be for one of the following reasons:

  • Not following the new No Participation rule with your inter-reddit link.

  • Posting a video link with no accompanying thoughts to spur discussion.

  • Trolling.

  • Posting something so far removed from TRP theories that I can't even Offtopic flair it.

I am no longer giving out warnings. The rules have been posted multiple times and it is now on the community to follow them. If you have any questions please refer to the sidebar, or contact us via modmail.

[–]wolfsktaag12 points13 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

i cant believe the admins would actually be giving any sub shit for this, while subs like /r/shitredditsays downvote brigade all day long and the admins never bat an eye

but then, the admins also banned a sub of mine for 'brigading', even tho the rules clearly stated it was not allowed. bunch of passive aggressive cunts runnin this show, i swear

[–]NeedsAHero5 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Not to mention that SRS brigading is INSANELY OVERT, all of their links are to posts that are against their whacked-out philosophy, and the vote score which means "This is how many people agree, try to bring that number down a bit, will ya?"

I declare accusations of vote manipulation to be meaningless, as different subs must adhere to different rules regarding the matter. Such bullshit.

[–]1Ill_mumble_that14 points15 points  (3 children) | Copy Link

You know honestly I don't even enjoy commenting on the rest of reddit that much anymore. So much damn misandry that it hurts. And most of redditors are male! It makes no fucking sense.

[–]soapjackal6 points7 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

It makes sense, it's just shitty.

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

White knight galore.

[–]TRP Vanguardnicethingyoucanthave2 points3 points  (8 children) | Copy Link

we have all participation disabled for non-subscribers

is that a new feature??

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 10 points11 points  (7 children) | Copy Link

It's a CSS trick. It's been working wonders- we have far less shit to deal with.

[–]celocanth132 points3 points  (5 children) | Copy Link

Its trivial to subscribe to a sub

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 10 points11 points  (4 children) | Copy Link

Our detractors aren't exactly bright.

[–]celocanth135 points6 points  (3 children) | Copy Link

I beg to differ

Beg all you want.

We're just trying to preempt any admin trouble.

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

I think this is a very good idea for preventing flame wars.

[–]cooledcannon0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

I would hate for reddit admins to remove trp. fuck the admins/police lol

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

So the TL;DR on this is add np. before any cross reddit link to stop taking over other subs discussion topics. Because sometimes what we have to say is quite at odds with the values and opinions of that particular subreddit. So in the case of TRP, it would stop others from coming in from SRS or wherever and just causing a fuss

Am i correct in understanding this?

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

He says that Polish and Estonian women are not into alpha game. Well, as an Estonian, I dare to disagree. I constantly see only assholes and pricks with real gorgeous women. Most of the others just beta around, especially in the psychologically repressed country like Estonia.

Don't know about the polish though...

[–]Modredpillschool[S] -2 points-1 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Wrong thread?

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