Information Guidelines for this subforum v1.0
As the culture war heats up, there is increasing overlap between "politics" and "culture," making it difficult to know if your thread belongs here (Politics & War) or in Everything Else.

Here are some guidelines:

1. Post here if your thread involves the government (agencies, politicians) or international institutions (UN, World Bank, etc) that generally involve a level above local police.

2. Post here if your thread is about terrorism, suspected terrorist actions, or state warfare. Random small-scale shootings (bank robbery gone bad) or catastrophes (nightclub fire, hurricane) can go in EE.

3. For threads about geo-political analysis and esoterism which tries to understand elite forces at play and their intentions, post here if it relates to current events or individuals. Post in the Deep Forum if it's general, non-specific commentary or history.

4. For general SJW or feminist freak-outs in public or universities, and "rape culture" topics that did not originate from a governmental source, post in EE. For example, a SJW crying about rape goes in EE, while a new law that re-defines rape from Congress can go here, since guideline number one applies.

Lastly, if you have under 50 posts, you cannot post here at all. If you do, you will be suspended for at least 7 days.

Hope that helps.

RE: Guidelines for this subforum v1.0
Now that the sub 250 rule is clearly known to all members, the punishment for breaking this rule will be a one week suspension instead of three days. If the member already has a 40% warning, the rule violation will result in a permanent ban.

RE: Guidelines for this subforum v1.0
Should the version in the thread title be changed to 1.1 or 2.0?

RE: Guidelines for this subforum v1.0
Suggested Posting Limitations

You cannot post in the Game section, unless you have completed 100 approaches.
You cannot post in the Newbie section if you have more than 250 posts.
You cannot post in a section other than the Newbie if you have less than 250 posts.
You cannot post in the Travel section unless you have visited 2 countries.
You cannot post in the Lifestyle section if you are under 21.
You cannot post in the Weightlifting and Fitness section unless you are current lifting weights and are fit.
You cannot post in the Deep Forum until you have submitted one 1500 word essay to ROK.
You cannot post in the Politics and War section unless you have 250 posts.
You can post in the Everything Else section.

Does this seem far-fetched? If someone makes 250 delete or blank posts are they more capable of making a Donald Trump or a politics and war post than beforehand, especially if it is based in life experience?

Regulation is seldom the solution. Encouraging people to positive action and example is much better. What is the mission here? Where are the objectives for the Forum discussed? It seems as though discussing more of what could/should be done and how it could/should be done is the critical path. You want to protect the speech mechanism by which the group is stabilized and can be dynamic.

7 day suspension accepted for this post.

My thoughts in bold.

No. Not everyone's game experience is built around approaching. Some people work social circle game. Some people work online game. Besides the fact that this would shut out many otherwise useful tidbits of information from many posters, the question of regulation presents itself. How would you track who has approached 100 times or not?

You cannot post in the Newbie section if you have more than 250 posts.

No. Often times vets will post in newbie threads to give quick advice from the hip. Often newbies post threads (with a single question or so) just for that.

You cannot post in a section other than the Newbie if you have less than 250
posts.

I could get behind this if it were modified to "You cannot post in the game section until you have more than 250 posts".

You cannot post in the Travel section unless you have visited 2 countries.

No. What about interstate travel in the US? Technically each state is still part of the same country, the US, yet each state can be drastically different. Besides, the issue of regulating such a thing rears its ugly head. Generally, it seems that people know enough not to clog up the travel forum and get called out quickly if they do. If anything, the travel forum could use a little more love, I think.

You cannot post in the Lifestyle section if you are under 21.

No. Some people have it figured out before then, especially in European countries. Let them tell people how they did it.

You cannot post in the Weightlifting and Fitness section unless you are current lifting weights and are fit.

No. While I like the idea in theory, in practice it's just another regulation nightmare and ultimately unnecessary. People generally have good sense (I think) to not post bullshit and get called out quickly if they do.

You cannot post in the Deep Forum until you have submitted one 1500 word essay to ROK.

No. Just no. Posting to RoK does not a deep thinker make. Plus, there's an approval process that takes a while to submit an article to RoK which would otherwise needlessly discourage a lot of guys who would otherwise happily impart deep wisdom with a quickness.

You cannot post in the Politics and War section unless you have 250 posts.

This is already a rule I believe.

You can post in the Everything Else section.

Same as above. Redundant.

Does this seem far-fetched? If someone makes 250 delete or blank posts are they more capable of making a Donald Trump or a politics and war post than beforehand, especially if it is based in life experience?

It's not that your ideas are particularly far-fetched. I don't doubt you have good intentions. I just doubt the implementation and feasibility of your ideas.

Regulation is seldom the solution. Encouraging people to positive action and example is much better. What is the mission here? Where are the objectives for the Forum discussed? It seems as though discussing more of what could/should be done and how it could/should be done is the critical path. You want to protect the speech mechanism by which the group is stabilized and can be dynamic.

I believe the forum is regulated enough.

7 day suspension accepted for this post.

That's the spirit.

The first part is a parody G and is not a good idea, they can be likened to potatoes. The second to last sentence is the meat. Your sincerity is appreciated.

14 days or maybe I will be banned.

Lastly, threads of IMO clearly political nature like this have been posted in Everything Else (EE). Roosh, could you please clarify what you mean by "here"? Is there a clear rule ("posting in the Politics sub-Forum is forbidden, but posting in EE is always ok")?

Am I on the safe side if I only post a reply to an already existing thread in EE? Otherwise, I would constantly have to worry about posting in EE (or any other part of the forum) if the topic might be deemed political.

Thank you.

Since the election is over, I have changed the minimum requirement for posting about politics or race from 250 posts to 50 posts.

I'm deeply concerned. How's the delete thread going to survive without spamposting by Ivanis to get his post count over the 250 mark? Smile

I felt that 250 was a solid marker. If you can make it to 250 posts without getting banned I would think there is no doubt that you have an understanding of the flow of the forum and not about to spout off some dumb shit.
Maybe it is too much but I think 50 definitely too little.
At 50 posts I was still learning and stayed in the newbie section.

I agree. I see a noticable uptick in retardation in this subforum now that the rule changed(mostly from sub 250 posters). This is not a good sign
