Meta[Mod] Announcing a new platform: www.TRP.red (self.TheRedPill)

submitted by Modredpillschool

Over the past year or so, I've been dropping hints about a project we've been working on behind the scenes to serve as a backup for TheRedPill if it were to get shut down.

It started when we heard about major subreddits getting shut down for their politically incorrect content, rather than content that violated reddit’s content policy. It was clear as day what the reddit administrators’ intentions were when evidence needed to be fabricated to justify the closures. "Off-site brigading" was invented as an invisible boogey man to prove that these off-color subreddits needed to go. It wasn't the content itself but they banned the content and continued pretending to be a bastion of free speech.

It was more than a year ago that we started formulating plans to ensure that TRP had a contingency put into place, so that we would not be caught off guard. This was a motto that I've always lived by: "A prudent man never leaves himself with no options."

And so today we unveil our new platform, but with a twist. Some of you caught my announcement last month where I hinted that we were going to be launching something much bigger than a backup forum. Today I am going to announce exactly what the platform is.


When the backup forums were being put together, and archive scrapes were running, the mod team and a small group of volunteers started the discussion of exactly what, how, and why the new site should operate. It was decided that since we started a subreddit, and our strength is in running a subreddit, that we would ensure that we did not leave reddit unless absolutely necessary. Because of this, we decided the backup forums would be read-only until the day this subreddit was closed. This remains our policy. We are not moving off of reddit unless it becomes necessary.

So what are we launching today?

During the development of our backup forums, a few crucial events took place that brought to our attention the state of social media today. There is absolutely no way around it, every major platform today is either run by social justice warriors, or kowtows to them when confronted.

Twitter began its crusade against conservatives, including men's rights champion Milo Yiannopoulos suggesting massive wide spread censorship and possibly reorganizing feeds so that certain people are not heard. Men face consequences when practicing their right to free speech, which would make any freely speaking man think twice before openly questioning the status quo.

Reddit has continued to demonstrate its questionable commitment to free speech, through two waves of subreddit banning based on content that disagrees with politically correctness.

Facebook and the greater social media sphere remains a stronghold for liberal views, even a slight comment that disagrees with the liberal group-think can land you without a job.

There is no question that today's Overton window does not include Red Pill ideology, and the Social Justice Warriors, Feminists, and do-gooders with their fresh liberal arts degrees are working around the clock to exclude any masculine interests from their acceptable speech list. Anything as harmless as a joke about dongles to something with more teeth (like being critical of feminism) has now become hate speech.

And the best way the SJW army has found to stifle male interests is ensuring that any form of communication that serves masculine interests is attacked, demonized, and must be destroyed along with any man who dared to possess such wrong-think.

And so we found ourselves with another niche that we wanted to address that works in conjunction with our original focus of the red pill.

Enter, https://www.trp.red

TRP.RED is a new platform designed to foster growth within the manosphere via more instantaneous feedback and increased connection between men, contacts, content producers and consumers.

We provide the framework for our users to set up shop immediately and start connecting with each other, in a similar fashion to social media, but without the dark cloud of social justice censorship looming above us.

The goals we wanted to achieve include:

  • We wanted a platform that allowed members to interact on a more casual level and connect in an environment that was more socially driven and less topic driven. We also wanted the ability to connect with individuals instead of the entire community.
  • We wanted a way to elevate positive contributions based on merit rather than social standing. We brought in a board of curators who will be helping us highlight quality posts on TRP and our new platform. The Board of curators that includes Rollo Tomassi, Ian Ironwood, IllimitableMan, GayLubeOil, Private Man, and others.
  • We wanted a way for people to contribute content to our community and be able to anonymously receive thanks from the community, rather than the current setup, which rewards reddit's bank account when we purchase reddit gold. *We wanted to ensure security, and have spent countless hours pouring over the code and framework to ensure that everyone’s privacy will be preserved. Donations by members on our board and IRC have purchased SSL certificates, and security professionals have assisted in code audits.
  • We wanted to ensure people could preserve their reddit account if they wanted. The registration system allows you to claim your reddit account as long as you have access to it on reddit.
  • And finally, we wanted to make sure not to change the focus or topic of what got us here. This new platform allows us to expand and extend the conversation without detracting from the original purpose of /r/TheRedPill: Discussion of sexual strategy in a culture increasingly lacking a positive identity for men.

The features of our new platform are many and growing.

  • Daily Prescription - users can post short public messages or insights with a curated few highlighted to the masses by our board of curators that includes names such as Rollo Tomassi, Ian Ironwood, IllimitableMan, GayLubeOil, Private Man, and others.
  • Blogs - users have a secure location to post ideas and thoughts on our new framework, and helps expose their ideas to the greater red pill audience through curation by our board of curators.
  • Tips - an anonymous framework for rewarding contributions to the community, you can now send tips for content that you find insightful.
  • Community - members can connect with other members directly in conversation-based interactions rather than the formal topic discussions we have on reddit. Much like a social network, this opens the doors for more community and comradery that reddit's form-based interface does not encourage. We intend to add many features during the next few months including a fitness tracker and personalized coaching tool for members to help other members.

We aim for this medium to connect current and future insightful creators with an audience of interested followers instead of putting them in a pool of anti-male censorship and public risk, which is an ever-growing problem facing members of the manosphere today.

If you reserved your username on our puerarchy.com reservation system over the past year, your username and password works on this new system. If you are having trouble accessing your reddit name or forgot your password, you can use the forgot password form to reset, or- if you didn't set an email, sent a msg to /u/trpbot from your reddit username you are trying to log into and we'll reset your previous password.

Everywhere you turn on the internet today, the stench of Leftist morality poisons discussion. Leaders of nations are called out on the carpet to account for their proclivities. Other nations laugh at the west when they hear news of yet another prominent man losing his career for doing the things that men wish to do, as if our nation would magically be where it is without the work these men have done.

TRP.red is a spearhead against this. We aim to be a communication hub for men that encourages each of their unique contributions to better the understanding of Sexual Strategy, not just lists posts that will get clicks, the latest tinder opener, or shortcuts to becoming “Alpha”.

We’re not the first pro-male site to take a stand and hopefully we won’t be the last. I’m happy to have been involved in the development of this platform and I hope that you find value in it as well.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Thanks for all your countless hours of help Anteros. It's been integral to the launch today.

[–]sickofbeingaffraid 9 points10 points  (1 child)

The presidential elections will soon take place here (not the US) and one of the thing candidated debated was "I led more fights for women's rights than you" while wome dont have it bad at all.

I would become insane without the job the mods and people like you put in. So thank you.

[–]trancedj 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yes. Thank you.

[–]1james-watson 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I am extremely elated with this development. TRP reddit unfortunately seems to cater mainly to newly unplugged with its emphasis on sexual strategy, but does little for the veteran redpiller.

I will be spending more of my time on the new platform, as it seems precisely designed for my interests.

Well done gentlemen.

[–]foldpak111 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

We are a laughing stock. We've become so pathetic. Just look at our military.

[–]RedSugarPill 14 points15 points  (0 children)

After all that foreplay and teasing, /u/redpillschool and company have finally satisfied my darkest and most hedonistic desires. I am afraid I might blurt out your name next time I climax..

[–]Endorsed Contributorredpillbanana 57 points58 points  (0 children)

It's like Twitter, Reddit, and Pinterest decided to join forces to become TRP with some Rollo and GayLubeOil poured on top for an illimitable experience. This is going to give me morning wood that feels like iron.

It's time to go to Red Pill School.

[–]abdada 10 points11 points  (10 children)

Damn that Reddit match login is sexy. Did you code that yourself or is it a plugin somewhere?

Also: max bench max squat in user profile is perfect. It asks for an age but a birthdate would be so much better so I don't have to update my age every year.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 19 points20 points  (2 children)

It asks for an age but a birthdate would be so much better so I don't have to update my age every year.

We wanted it open ended so people could put vague answers, such as "late twenties." We don't want you to sacrifice personally identifying information.

[–]abdada 3 points4 points  (0 children)

ah crap that makes sense, thanks for clearing it up.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 9 points10 points  (6 children)

Coded it myself.

[–]abdada 4 points5 points  (4 children)

Damn. I could use this for some of my sites, never realized it was possible. Time to learn the Reddit API now. I just started learning PHP and MySQL 5 weeks ago and already have 2 sites up with code I've hacked. What a rush to sculpt something monetizable.

I'll hit you up for running ads in the very near future.

[–]1Soarinc 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Is SQL still a goldmine for someone in their late 20's to up and learn?

[–]abdada 0 points1 point  (1 child)

No idea but holy shit I understand MySQL now and it's really making my life easy being able to make custom databases for various purposes.

Wish I had learned it 10 years ago.

[–]1Soarinc 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ok well I'm trying to get into medical school, and am a really bright, hard-working guy. Is there still a good solid future in that for the next decade or was this decade the honeypot years and will normalize out once everyone jumps on that lucrative bandwagon?

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

You'll need it for any decent development job and especially if you plan to move beyond that.

[–]desbest 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What framework did you use?

[–]Senior Contributor: "The Court Jester"GayLubeOil 23 points24 points  (8 children)

It's Happening! The more Twitter and Reddit fist themselves out of market share the more we will grow. Have you considered making a phone app? That way we can use geolocation data to set up Red Pill meetups anonymouslyish.

Iv been meeting Red Pillers irl recently and I have to say it an awesome experience.

[–][deleted] 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Swipe me right bro ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 13 points14 points  (3 children)

Yes, we want a phone app, but it's a future feature.

[–]Senior Contributordr_warlock 5 points6 points  (1 child)

and /u/gaylubeoil

We will call it the misogyny convention or thought criminal connect.

but itunes and android will probably take it down. Needs to be more subtle. In addition, purposely give it low ratings so that the mainstream doesnt bother downloading it. Give it a required password, tell only vetted users what it is.

[–]IDefyAxioms 7 points8 points  (0 children)

itunes and android will probably take it down.

Not sure how the Apple platform works, but on Android, you can simply host the APK somewhere (like on our new site) for people to download. Google is an unnecessary middleman.

This comment has been overwritten by an open source script to protect this user's privacy. It was created to help protect users from doxing, stalking, and harassment.

If you would also like to protect yourself, add the Chrome extension TamperMonkey, or the Firefox extension GreaseMonkey and add this open source script.

Then simply click on your username on Reddit, go to the comments tab, scroll down as far as possibe (hint:use RES), and hit the new OVERWRITE button at the top.

[–]ChadThundercockII 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You can't get into that sort of competition with GLO. lel

[–]bslizzle 7 points8 points  (3 children)

It looks fantastic. Very navigable and I love the links to the different forums at the top right. The connection to reddit accounts makes it much easier, and the social media aspect is cool. Great job to all who worked on the project, and I look forward to further updates.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Thanks bslizzle, we've put a lot of hours into this.

[–]desbest 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I found a bug. When browsing the sections from the top bar on the screen, "the red pill network" does not link to trp.red

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

Good find, will fix asap

[–]Endorsed ContributorMentORPHEUS 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Nice work, men!

I'm glad you're not trying to run two parallel platforms (Reddit and the new site); that would divide and dilute the content severely.

Is Puerarchy.com going to be set aside now?

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I'm glad you're not trying to run two parallel platforms (Reddit and the new site); that would divide and dilute the content severely.

Agreed, that would be a problem.

Is Puerarchy.com going to be set aside now?

We're going to keep it, as a blog. But yes, trp.red will be our new official off-reddit site.

[–]RedEyesBlueShades 6 points7 points  (1 child)

This is awesome news! Thanks for creating this.

You should also add a BTC address for community donations. Server time and all the rest does not come for free... A contribution is the least we can do to thank you.

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

Agreed. Here it is if anybody wants to make donations. I'll add it to the page too.


[–]Senior Endorsed ContributorCopperFox3c 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Looks interesting. You might consider adding a Search function to the site. Can be pretty useful.

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

Thanks for the recommendation.

Currently you can search the forum archives, and user's comments/posts on https://www.forums.red/i/

However status search feature will be in a future update.

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

How is this site hosted and when someone inevitably reports it as "hosting cp" to the hoster, what is the plan then?

What about DDOS attacks?

Definitely worth waiting for BTW. Grats on all the hard work coming together for everyone.

[–]IWISHIWASASECRET 3 points4 points  (8 children)

I hope very soon we will get an App for platforms such as Android and Apple

[–]-Enmity- 5 points6 points  (7 children)

/u/redpillschool put a lot of work into making sure it works well on mobile.

[–]IIlllIllIIIllIl 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I accessed it on my mobile and I was blown away how well it looks out of the box.

[–]IWISHIWASASECRET 0 points1 point  (5 children)

I know and I agree. But Im not talking about using safari, google or any browser on your phone. Im talking about downloading an app and using it there

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 6 points7 points  (4 children)

We do have a plan for app versions. Volunteers welcome!

[–]tonyfaulkner 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I can help with the Android part of things. If you are interested, please shoot me a message and I can start.

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

Yes, very interested. Will contact you tomorrow.

[–]zetetic-elench 2 points3 points  (0 children)

iOS dev here, able to volunteer some time.

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

If using phone gap for that effort, I'm happy to contribute.

[–]TheMGhandi 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Feminism is similar to a relationship with a woman. After she gets familiar to you, she starts her agenda to have all the power. The seeds were planted early and, by this time of X year, you are emasculated.

Now, all she will do is see how far she can push until the breaking point. Obviously, she hasn't thought of the consequences. Similar to the criminal who thinks he can rob banks and escape, when there are cameras everywhere (a few can succeed but if they're smart enough, they wouldn't rob the Elites money).

Women aside, I saved all the knowledge I thought useful and put it in word documents. If this isn't what everyone has been doing, then you all could have wasted all your time here in TRP.

Only negative thing to say is about the title. It should read [HNIC] instead.

[–]Scroph 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Is there a place where we can report bugs if we find any ?

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

[–]NihilDicoAmplius 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Should also say this somewhere prominently on the site.

[–]alexway66 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Bookmarked and whitelisted www.TRP.red for adblocker and privacybadger. Do the same to support.

[–]the_Milkweed 2 points3 points  (6 children)

Curious about the websites security, specifically the database. How much is saved, what's the os, basics.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 0 points1 point  (5 children)

Linux, passwords individually salted and encrypted. We save latest IP address for abuse purposes only.

[–]TheRedThrowAwayPill 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Do not encrypt passwords.

1-way hash them only

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Yes it's one way.

[–]TheRedThrowAwayPill 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Ok good.

But "encrypt" implies you can "decrypt". That's not one way.

One way hash is like MD5 or SHA256: Garbled and you can't undo it. (You have to hash their login and compare the result.)

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

Yes sorry, I'm used to using the word encrypt with clients because it's easier to understand, but rest assured it's a one way hash that could never be decrypted.

[–]UnwelcomedJurist 3 points3 points [recovered]

Reading this convinced me to make an account and start contributing in any way that I can. I was a long term lurker that found TRP after an eventful breakup, and like many of our current members, TRP helped me filter out the bullshit PC that people throw your way these days. TRP IS the breath of fresh air otherwise surrounded by smog, and I wouldn't be where I am today without the help of all of you

[–]alpha_n3rd 1 point2 points  (4 children)

No MRP, no thanks

[–]IRC Mod-Anteros- 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I assumed it would go without saying, but MRP users (and RPW) are welcome to participate along with users from the sub.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

IF MRP wants me to archive their sub, I'll do it.

[–]alpha_n3rd 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I can't imagine why they wouldn't. I'm still wondering why, a year and half after unplugging, MRP still isn't linked in the side-bar. I know it's not an "official" TRP sub but OTOH it's been hugely helpful to thousands of married men including myself. The main subs are great for general RP stuff and single guys but MRP is really invaluable for married men.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 15 points16 points  (0 children)

The reason is simple. I endorse content that I know will stay pure for red pill, information that I know won't lead people astray.

When MRP was young, I participated in a few discussions and weighed in on some threads that were chock full of really, really bad advice. I wasn't trying to be disparaging, only give some quality advice to guys who needed it.

A rogue mod decided they didn't like my advice and banned me from the sub.

While that mod has since stepped down, and I have been unbanned, I can't speak to the quality or future vision that the mods there have for their content, so I'm not comfortable endorsing it at the moment. (I may revisit this and see how things are going.)

We do, however, have a LTR flair, and discussion of married game is entirely on topic.

[–]FRedington 2 points2 points [recovered]

Not having an RSS/Atom feed makes it non-followable.

Please provide an RSS feed.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Some feed features will be available in the near future.

[–]FRedington 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]unicornh_1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

please put RSS feeds on site so it'll be helpful.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Looks very good.

the only thing That needs to change imo is the scrolling menu on the mobile version. it is pointless and way too big on my 6s.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

way too big on my 6s.

Noted, will look into this. Thanks.

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

No problem.

I appreciate the effort a lot.

[–]causeandcorrelation 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thanks for your efforts RPS and all the others. Site looks good. Is there a place to submit feedback or function requests?

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

Nice work. But maybe needs a more compelling name, like Redbook, or something more simple that immediately tells you what its about. Thats if you want your site to grow over time ofcourse

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

Redbook is a popular women's magazine owned and operated by the Hearst publishing empire and attracts more than 5 million website visitors per month.

[–]1RXRob 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Awesome site. I hope that it gets embraced by our community and gives us a social media platform where I can write something as uninflammatory as "I vote Conservative" without being attacked.

I guess it'd be better if I could just check it but I'm on phone and it's inconvinient.

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

There's a mobile interface

[–]tallwheel 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The mobile interface is beautiful and easy to use. I added a shortcut link on my home screen.

[–]asskisser 0 points1 point  (0 children)

can someone here tell me which sub reddits were witchhunted by reddit?

[–]1TheReindeerGuy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hopefully you have some security savvy guys on board. You'll probably need it someday.

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

Thank you ! This is amazing.

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

Suggestion: i am reading on mobile and usually in pretty lively places. Can the website not show my username and web-page name all the time ? I need to keep trp in some secrecy due to work related reasons... sadly as it is.

[–]Evileddie13 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is fucking great. Thanks so much.

[–]GuitarMatt99 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's not a surprise to see that TRP would need a backup plan. Reddit killed off subs like FatPeopleHate and had that feminist CEO. I looked at the link and it looks good. I've tried NMMNG (despite not being a Nice Guy, that was one of the only games in town circa 2004), I tried MGTOW. Too many TFLers talking about lame crap like blow up sex dolls.

So the Red Pill is the only game in town. I still like watching some MGTOW video content. But as far as their forums? It's just give-up-itus to me.

At least this place about about self-improvement. As was said in The Shawshank Redemtion "get busy living or get busy dying." (Which is a total rip off of a line from Bob Dylan's "It's All Right Mom I'm Only Bleeding").

In short, RP is about living more than MGTOW. Which is about dying.
