It amazes me how limited you are if you are a skilled IT professional and living in western Europe. The difference in salary between a junior and a very good senior is not that much (most of the time 1.5-2 times more) and then you have really high taxes which cut your salary in half after taxes. I am thinking of giving a shot at another country (possibly USA). Can someone give some recommendations if they work in IT? What country has low taxes and you can get really good income for a 9-5 job? I have heard that in USA you can get 200k/year if you are good at what you do. Also it amazes me how cheaper USA is (excluding health insurance afaik but you can get good deals with your company for this, right?) based on the income and taxes compared Germany for example.
Right now, the discussion is about how we change the forward facing portion of the site in attracting new users and how we negotiate the voluntary process of engagement.
What isn't working is that when some people show up, instead of a discussion, people post mocking photoshops of public photos of some people in an effort to shame or scare away people.
Other people try to drown out others by ganging up and using obscenities or use usernames like "fuck you nigger" which is inherently uninviting to a casual onlooker who may have something legitimate to contribute.
I should be clear here, disagreement is fine, and controversy drives traffic. But there is a way to disagree without targeting harassment and personal attacks that I think we should be able to embrace on the home page.
I have never, and will never, suggest curtailing the tribes based on decorum. There are going to be groups you disagree with. That's the point of the site. To entertain opposing views and then duke it out if people want to.
Everybody here wants to have a user base of strong minded men. Pretty much everybody agrees here that if some faggot is scared away for simple words on the internet, then they better be off here because more of oversensitive masses will flood the site
This idea that we should be kicking anybody out that doesn't meet your standards is short-sighted. First of all, nobody here is the arbiter of what ideas are right or wrong, not even me. There are people with competing ideas who equally require a place that allows the conversation. For example: MGTOW, I disagree with their personal philosophies, but they are at risk of losing a place on the internet where their conversation can take place. We can give them a place to talk, even if we disagree with them.
What's actually happening is we're chasing off competing ideas before they can get a foothold.
My goal is to preserve the conversations being forced off the internet elsewhere. I don't agree with most of them, but I will fight to give them a place to speak.
This isn't about members being "weak" or "faggots." If I landed on a site that was staunchly against me for superficial reasons, and mocked me until I left, I probably wouldn't invest enough time to ever care about participating in the discussion. And I might have good ideas. I might even have better ideas. But I would use my talents elsewhere where the community was at least open to starting a conversation rather than chasing people out.
As you already understand, I am taking all of your criticisms very seriously and will not make a change until I think we're all on the same page. I am open to suggestions.Read More
@MentORPHEUS People are driven away because when they join this community, on the main page, they see people like GLO and his bitches, writing "cuck", "faggot" and other ordinary low intellect words to other members, they get the image that this is some sort of 4chan-like website where they can't get anything from. Myself I tried to be active on this forum but I am always sticking to reddit.com/r/theredpill because the content there is moderated and rated by users themselves. Maybe it's because of the design of the forum, it clearly needs some moderation at least on the front page and/or design changes where people, when they join, face rich content and not memes.
@drake What happens on tribe/theredpill or in the forums is moderated for our standards of decorum. Individual tribes will have their own rules. However the all users feed is unmoderated.
I recommend using Daily Prescription and adding friends that you want to interact with.
@bsutansalt as you can see he doesn't. All he has done is put his dogs to shame community members with calling them "cuck", "faggot" and "beta". Why is this guy an endorsed contributor? He's not contributing anything at all. I haven't seen one post from him that can tell that this guy is contributing. All he says is lift, nothing else. No strategy to succeed in life, nothing at all. All I can see is him making this community a shitty place. No intellectual discussion, no other discussion that people can benefit from. All he and his dogs do is hide themselves behind their screen and behave like they are the leaders of the world mafia and call everything that doesn't align with their thoughts, weak.
Can we have some moderation in this community? I think this has to stop.Read More
