The design reminds me of the old version of reddit which I really liked. Most importantly reddit can't censor shit.

May I ask what stack is this running on? I might be able to help if it's open source. I usually do backend/fullstack/mobile stuff.

I was planning to do similiar website myself, but not a reddit clone since thedonald.win already aced it. Maybe conservative friendly version of twitter.

Anyway, great job with the website!

Edit: I want to correct my mistake. I only mentioned Shadowman3001, but we should really be thanking the whole team for their incredible effort. Once again the project manager got all the credit :D

Ideally it'll never come to that. Our guys are pretty wicked smaht when it comes to this shit, and we're expecting to be able to handle everything out of pocket. For example, magaimg is mod-created and mod-funded, has been for years, and you wouldn't believe the traffic and data it gets.

When I originally proposed this idea to the mod team I hesitantly suggested that we reach out to friendly conservative companies to do ads because I figured running the place would be waaaaaaaay more than it actually would. The devs called me an idiot and we decided on a strict no monetization plan.

That's amazing news! Thanks for all you've done so far. This is incredible work. Is it safe to say that all precautions have been taken in choosing a host and everything else to prevent bullshit like Gab dealt with (having to go with Epik, who supported the cause)?

I like the idea of a Merch store. I want to see pedes at Trump rallies wearing a shirt that points people to this website. You can’t tell me that the users here wouldn’t come up with the best ideas! All the money could be devoted to trumps campaign or other charities that Chick-fil-A won’t support anymore.

I'd really like some subtle shit, like shirts with nothing but red T_D letters on it. And maybe a small flag on the shirt somewhere

One suggestion I'd like to see, a subdom for news to separate things out.

I disagree on no monetization.

Do hats, shirts, mugs. Allow donations. I have other ideas but I won't speak of them publicly.

Avoid ads.

(and smoke meth like the real redtaboo)

Someone needs to pick up where the Hot Shots calendar left off, but with hot MAGA Pedes.

was shadowman saying no monetization? Or just no ads?

On mobile, can’t tell right now, but yeah, merch?

Hey Shadowman3001. I work in systems infrastructure and have built hosting infrastructure for a top-50 website. If you guys need any help or have any problems that you're trying to solve, I would love to help out however I can. My area of expertise is Linux, Kubernetes, and AWS. I write software, mostly in Go. My day job is at a big San Francisco Bay Area tech company (the basement of Hell) and it would be incredibly fulfilling to help out here. Whatever needs doing. Please PM if I can help in any way.

I work in IT security for a Silicon Valley company. I wish there was a way we could connect - like a conservative IT slack group or something. But I’m horribly paranoid about having my identity revealed and my employer finding out I’m on the Trump train.

I haven't been approved for Discord yet, but once I am, I want to make a technipedes channel or something similar. I will try to comment here or send you a PM if I ever get approved and if I can send messages.

I totally understand what you're going through. I was "outed" at a previous company and everything changed for me overnight. Went from friendly to pariah more or less instantly.

I can tell you that you're not alone. We're outnumbered, yeah, but we are there. Let's make this channel happen.

Also a closet non-liberal working in SF in tech. Would love to do a big FU to Reddit, and Google with some SSID protesting. :P

I often set up my portable WiFi with things like #Trump2020 or #Trump is your president when I’m traveling in San Francisco

It's amazing how efficient and inneficient these platforms can be when you have actual smart hardworking people building them instead of sjw's and 20 layers of beaurocracy.

Please allow donations. Use Flattr or something. I would contribute a small amount every month to ensure this website stays up!!!
