This is from the FAQ.

To combat spam and trolls, new members must go through a trial period where they can only reply to existing threads no more than once every 10 minutes. Once 14 days have passed and you accumulate 25 posts and you have received at least 10 likes to your posts, you will then become a member with full privileges. Here are other features you will not be able to do as a new member: post in the Politics subforum, report posts, react to posts, upload avatar, upload attachments, edit signature.

Honored to join the club. Refreshing rules in a digital age where all rules and physical constraints have been knocked away. If i'm to have one insight, these kind of rules that add friction will be rules the next generation of tech platforms adopt into the future. The limited-use newbie rule alone makes me think of the forum as something to contribute to rather than consume from.

I'm an original reader of your book Bang. It woke me from my naivety and distracted my soul for some time. It's only when I took on the responsibility of a wife and family that I started to realize my foundations were terribly shaky. I was encouraged when I came back to the forum (prior lurker) to find and read about your transformation, thereby helping to encourage mine. Beginning my journey to seek His will.
 
Forum Rules
(Last updated 11/7/20)

This is a forum for Christian men. We have strict rules that allow the forum to exist as a unified community. If you fail to read the following rules, there is a high chance that you will put your identity at risk or be banned without warning. Here are the rules...

1. Don't talk down to members. Don't call someone an idiot, moron, or hater. Don't use condescending language such as "WTF are you talking about?" Don't be a drama queen or be quick to get into arguments. Defer to senior members, who help make the forum what it is.

2. Your account and posts are permanent. Accounts and posts can never be deleted, even if you're banned. When you make a post, you have 60 minutes to edit the post, and then it's permanent. You also cannot maintain more than one account. You cannot register again if you have been previously banned.

3. Don't be a low-quality poster. Don't use textspeak. Don't flood the forum with junk posts. Don't use the forum to promote your web site or business. Don't post someone's personal information. Don't demoralize or dispirit other members through black pill or negative posting. Don't spread hopelessness or use the forum to vent negative emotional feelings or states. Don't be a single-purpose member or shill who pushes an agenda mainly about an individual or pet cause.

4. Do not use profane or vulgar language. Refrain from using profane words. Do not describe sexual encounters or situations that are beyond the act of kissing.

5. No race or political baiting. It's okay to talk about race if that's the topic, but no geo-political discussions on why one race is superior or inferior to another or why an upcoming race war in X country will be bad. Do not repeatedly start political arguments. NOTE: Newbies under 25 posts are not allowed to participate in race or political discussions.

6. Do not discuss or glorify pre-marital sexual activity. You can discuss how to meet, attract, and date women with the intention of entering a relationship with them, but not how to have sex. You cannot discuss casual hook-ups. You cannot ask where to travel to in order to have sex.

7. Do not blaspheme God. You are not permitted to insult, ridicule, mock, or desecrate Christian beliefs or practices on the forum. While you can participate in polite intellectual discussions concerning Christianity, attacks against God that come from a place of atheism, hedonism, or secularism are not allowed. You are also not allowed to have heated debates with a fellow Christian for his views, dogmas, or doctrines. Do not emotionally argue with fellow Christians.

8. Do not publicly share your personal information or details on the forum. Do not share so much information about yourself that allows you to be easily identified. Use an email address that, if leaked, does not reveal your identity and select a username that you have never used on other sites. Do not share photos of yourself or people you know. If you want to meet other members, share your burner email to take the conversation off the forum.

9. No spamming or self-promotion. Do not register solely to promote your business or web site(s). You are allowed to post one commercial link in your signature after you gain 100 reaction points.

10. Do not post about the following: underage girls, illegal crimes, prostitution (p4p), sugar daddy arrangements, gore, scat, or NSFW images. Follow local laws when posting on the forum.

11. By signing up to the forum, you agree to receive updates about your account to your email address. We send occasional notifications and product updates to your registration email.

Thankyou, I agree to your rules.
 
Roosh,
I just want to say that I found you in 2016ish on the R.O.K. site and although I applauded your posts about masculinity I couldn't say that I related to much of the PUA posts. I've been married for 11 years and have 5 kids so that never really applied to me. But I converted to catholicism around the same time I found R.O.K. and brother after reading some of your newer articles on here I just wanted to say that I am proud of you! It's hard to walk in faith nowadays and it's only going to get harder. Please keep on keepin on and I'll keep you in my prayers! God bless you Brother!
 
To Roosh or whichever moderator, How should we go about reporting spam/hackers in this forum? I just received an unsolicited message from "Hanna" - Chicken containing nude pictures of a woman I have never seen? Please advise.

Edit: It appears that the message disappeared now. Thanks to whoever fixed it.

Is it allowed to post our own articles here under the 'off-topic' section.

It would not link back to any external website or anything.

I want to share my thoughts with this community but I don't really want to set up a blog for it.

Forum is not a good venue for long form articles or essays. It's more for fast discussion. You can try a bit to see if there is a response.

Quite impressed by the sensibility of these rules, tbh! I am here primarily as an Orthodox inquirer, so I may or may not get involved discussing topics pertaining to that.

I didn't frequent the old "Return of Kings" site often but a decent amount, I have been very impressed with the obvious changes in Roosh. Glory to God!

Thanks for opening up to new accounts btw!

Thank you for these rules and for this forum. Thank you for proper structure and honesty. I’m a wayward Christian making my way back to divine truth after many years — a lifetime, really — of wandering through temptations, lies and empty “spiritual” ideas.

Agree to the Rules of the Forum, as well as the Christian viewpoints... Knowing that Roosh of the Eastern Orthodox, and there being many different Sects of Christianity... do hope it is OK to have robust discussions about Dogmas which may be sacred to certain Sects, but have different interpretations in other Sects... I can be a bit of a WASP concerning my Christian views... but have been influenced by the Ethiopian Orthodox Bible... which contains many more Books than Bibles which were promulgated under Roman Catholic influence... plus I am biologically Jewish... with affiliations to the Orthodox/Chabad Sect of Judaism... though there will be very little injection of any of the Babylonian Talmud... which I have very little adherence to, outside of research into various oddities contained therein... being primarily a Torah Jew... this ought to be an excellent place to exchange ideas on what it means to base ones life following Our Lord and Savior...
