Welcome to the public square. This is our welcoming tribe dedicated to introducing yourself, meeting new people, and learning about new tribes.
Quick update - after having some success with limited ads on forums.red we are integrating limited ads to trp.red as well. I hate to do it but our donations don't really cover operating costs so this will be a net benefit to the longevity of our platform.
If you have donated in the past, you may already be ad-free, so you may not notice a major difference. As for the rest of you, I am announcing a one time offer that expires soon: Donate one or more times to our patreon or PM me with a donation to bitcoin, and receive a lifetime of no-ads on trp.red and forums.red, even after you stop donating.
This offer will expire, and will return to ad-free only for active patrons.
Quick question. For future reference, what's the web address for information regarding advertisement rates and related info that I should use to direct prospective advertisers to?Read More
@travisscottshirt Why You Should Own a Travis Scott Shirt If you love hip-hop, you might be looking for a Travis Scott Shirt. This design is inspired by the artist's new record label Cactus Jack and features a 1x1 rib collar and a wide double topstitch. The tee is made of 100% cotton and is a great gift for the music lover in your life.
Travis Scott Merchandise If you're a fan of hip hop, you're going to love this Travis Scott Shirt. A popular musician, Travis has a unique style that mixes earth-toned colours with vibrant patterns. He has a retro nineties feel to his look, and it's reflected in his clothing collections. He often wears chunky jackets and long oversized T-shirts.
So far as I can tell, our traffic on forums.red went up 400-500% and caused stability issues. I increased our resources short term to resolve the issue. Looks organic and as my stats software crunches the data we'll get a better look at what's causing the drive, but preliminary intel suggests it's Google and Reddit. I can see the increase in traffic but it'll be some time to see why.
Now is a good time to invest in our Patreon. I'm thinking about new benefits to provide subscribers. I'm open to suggestions. Today's traffic will cost a lot more than our normal budget.
@TiberiusBravo87 hard to say if it's natural or not. it's not the kind of spike you'd normally see from a DDOS but possibly we're being hugged to death by a link somewhere.
Unfortunately my stats don't really update in real time so the only really well performing post makes up 5% of the total counted traffic.
If it's that post (and my stats are catching up) then it's this one...
I just increased our resources. Let me know how it feels for the time being.
