Exclamation Game and Travel subforums will be removed on January 13
I've decided to permanently remove the Game and Travel subforums, which have been locked since September. It is not suitable that type of content to be part of the forum anymore.

If you have threads there that you'd like to save, now is your chance. The removal will take place around January 13.

But why? It's history. Nobody should destroy history. I understand the change of heart and faith, but it's almost like an Iconoclast act. There's no changing the past, no matter how shameful one might perceive it. Besides, there are plenty of useful datasheets, like the one about professional photography - not everything there is about out-of-wedlock sex.

I understand I might look like a neophyte now - a low-rep noob arguing about something he barely knows - but it's important. One day I might browse the archives and find something I didn't even know I needed, just like dozens of men in the past, I bet.

Reconsider it, please.

How? We can take this to pm if this isn't what roosh wants on in open discussion.

I do want to mention, Roosh, your writing, and your forums have helped countless men improve themselves who may have been lost otherwise(or reading some douche like rsd)

Anyway you could take a backup of the subforums and make it downloadable for members only?

There are still a lot of good threads in there that don’t necessarily involve degenerate behavior. Looking for all of them would be tedious.

RE: Game and Travel subforums will be removed on January 13
I don't have an opinion on this; Roosh's convictions are his own. Through Christian discipleship you learn that only the Holy Spirit (God) can give you convictions meaning what you should and should not do, otherwise, we become like Sadducees and Pharisees trying to force their ideas and convictions on others.

I've posted some items on CS Lewis so that when anyone does a search for "CS Lewis" they find his deep ideas here on Roosh V Forums - off all places. And while I think his ideas need to be heard - I believe that he didn't cover heathen "Wench" culture as some men do not know it but I feel they may benefit from knowing it (the depths) and that hopefully it'd be ok - that they should know it.

That is where if the Game subforum had any value - it might show or teach clueless men the depths of heathen culture.

And for who?
Themselves
A Son
A Nephew
A Friend going through divorce
Etc.

Sure, historically, we know that King Herod and even Caligula were human-devils and they had vile women with them. Sure, we all have family members that are train wrecks and whores, but if there's a place to read about the reality - I wonder if those ideas would be a "reality check" - not so much as a bunch of secular writings or pose found on RooshV Forums.

See, prior to Roosh becoming a Christian or him renewing his faith; I didn't dare create an account here. I was a lurker and read CH on Word Press too; but I felt it was all too diabolical. Now, that there is a juxtaposition, I finally signed up here on RooshV Forums. Now, I wonder if with the juxtaposition, I wonder if those "secular evil prose pieces" are read by Forum members as a "Beware, use at your own Risk".

Currently, I'm reading here all the Black Pill and hateful ideas about marriage. And all I do is think "Good Luck fellows, for this may be as good as it gets for you, alone, scared of marriage, scared of divorce, etc ... you have so much hatred in your heart that people wonder if you are letting God into your heart."

Even though I think that CH on Wordpress was evil and a little weird when it went into Race issues; I think or actually wonder whether the ideas on CH should be lost to "piece meal" videos of articles and a partial Twitter archive. Again, here at this point in my comment, I could discuss case studies of horrible women.

Even, in marriage when things are great - some little issue will raise its ugly little "therapy needing" head. It baffles me some of the things my wife has said in the recently years and she is very faithful to God and me. I think a guy that is well read on Bible Scriptures and other material about secular realities - has a better focus or grasp of life.

You get married and it's good for the children that you stay together. You think you know your wife and her family - sometimes you don't know the half of it. I hope it's ok with God that I've read RooshV and CH on WordPress. I think the two sources have made me a more sound and settled man.

If Roosh has made is mind up on this - then I say he should stick to it.

RE: Game and Travel subforums will be removed on January 13
There will be a lot of lost gems, the wisdom and the knowledge, not to mention million(s) Man hour written works not involving degenerate behaviors. Knowledge that helps men to navigate the world and even find a wife. To become a master of himself. We need that more than ever.

I myself hope to find a wife and the knowledge in those threads can only help, not hinder my goals.

Otherwise all of those knowledge which cannot be found elsewhere will be lost. It is wrong to deny the fruits of labor from which other men can learn from and improve, all without having to go against Roosh' s beliefs.

I hope backups logs can be made for members only

Dang, will be a sad day. There’s a wealth of life-saving advice (not related to degeneracy) for men written by some of the wisest men.

Just off the top of my head, I remember a post by Jariel on moving on from exes that helped me during a difficult time: https://www.rooshvforum.com/thread-39626.html

How do we archive the posts? It’ll be a tragedy if all the handed down wisdom is lost.

RE: Game and Travel subforums will be removed on January 13
Roosh,

Will you release the database files (of whatever they are called) for the Travel and Game forums to long-standing members so they can at least have personal archives for themselves?

For the record: I've long been an advocate of chasing quality relationships vs ONS/bangs before RVF 2.0.

Just this past month for example, I searched the Travel archives regarding a very conservative central asia country and found a TON of good info ranging from overall culture, quality of life, amenities, differences between towns, religious history, business climate, friendliness towards westerners (or lack of), and the general personalities of the local women.

Sure, there were some comments focus on strictly chasing bangs but that hardly was the pure focus of the aforementioned thread nor did I value that info. That said, I learned a TON about a possible conservative traditional oriented country that has potential wife/family material.

I can understand why you want a clean slate but for guys like myself, destroying that sort of high quality knowledge base feels sort of like throwing the baby out with the bathwater. There is still tons of quality info, relevant to the current paradigm of the forum, to be found within the Game and especially the Travel archives.

I looked into some sort of spider/copy software geared towards online forums but it seems pretty cumbersome and not very user friendly. It is my understanding however (could be wrong), that if you released the raw database files, I and others could at least view the archives offline; similar to how you can download a typical webpage and can do offline viewing.

I respect your decision to delete things but are you willing to release the database files to long-standing members so we can at least keep personal archives?

Yes, the forum is much better as a pseudo-Christian, rage-bait circle jerk for autists.

Roosh: get help before you end up in the loony bin.

p.s. Your new forum header looks like shit. It's as false as your conversion.

But you will continue to sell books because you profit from them?

What a joke this forum has become over the last year or two, it used to be so good and it has helped many men. How many would be incels have been saved? Now all you have is faggot larpers like LDN and others who blame everything on Jews.

Even though I will be banned for this post I would like to say thanks to Roosh for starting this forum and all the major contributors..... it WAS great, this website helped me and I wish it could stay the way it was so it could continue to help others instead of this weird cult like circle jerk.

Who is this Redbeard guy liking all Roosh's posts like he's jacking him off?

RE: Game and Travel subforums will be removed on January 13
I have mixed feelings about this but my new-found spiritual instincts tell me that my knee-jerk response to have reservations about this purge is the same reason I have a double-wide shed full of junk "I'll probably use some day" while my ute sits in the driveway gathering leaves and dust.

Roosh has given everyone a looooooong time to see this coming. 6 months at least. You now get an additional 7 days to scoop up what's apparently vitally important.

My guess is that most people won't, and in another 6 months they wont miss it either. Just like the junk I'm dumping at the tip one ute-load at a time.

Deo confidimus. Roosh was obviously not going to be running this forum at age 80. He's lucky(?) not to have been deplatformed already. This is another wake-up call to get your priorities in order, particularly for Americans. I can assure you that doesn't involve WIAs guide to alpha-widowing 10 women a week. Collateral damage is a bitch but there are big buildings called libraries where you can find books on a great many topics and they even let you take them home for free.

Get cracking.

Roosh with all due respect the travel sub-forum contain a wealth of information regarding various locations that have nothing to do with women or sex such as photos of places to visit, cost of living, food, climate, learning new languages, sightseeing, culture, architecture, trekking, extreme sports, etc So all of that good and valuable information about all manner of topics will disappear and be collateral damage in your quest to crack down on sinful sexuality? Travelling is one of the great joys of life for many people. it would be a great shame if we cannot discuss it any more.

I am also curious about the travel section. There seems to be plenty that isnt sex related in that forum. Is there a way to remove specific threads, but save others?

"Be a leader and never ever follow" That's what my father, that's what he always told me. So with those words boldly spoken, he sent me down a long and hard road.

My humble blog.

RE: Game and Travel subforums will be removed on January 13
This is disappointing. I think the travel forum has a wealth of information that has nothing to do with chasing women (like accommodation and safety aspects of travelling to certain locations for example).
I know it has helped me a great deal in the past, for example, in planning a recent trip to Brazil. Couldn't have done it without it. It represent hours and hours put into valuable datasheets by members from all over the world. It was, in fact, the reason I found the entire forum and Roosh's writings in the first place, back in 2012. And now it will be gone forever, which is really too bad.

Can anyone please provide information on how to most efficiently save an entire thread that's several pages long? Please PM me or better yet, post a reply on here for everyone's benefit. Thank you.

I wonder if you could make these forums accessible for non-members (without the need to login) for the remaining days? Then people could make a copy with HTTrack.
