VFM and Gab

All VFM who emailed me prior to noon today have received their registration emails from Gab.  In the event you don't think you have, you are advised as follows:
Many in the lists had already been sent, mostly gmails, those folks should check both their "social" and spam folders. Usually best to do an inbox search. Google is pushing our emails to both of those folders.
Remember, once you're on, be sure to do a post with #DreadIlk and #VFM so that others can find and follow you.

By the way, @a will be appearing at the Monday Brainstorm on the Disconvergence. I'm hoping that we'll actually have three of the major #AltTech players there. Invites will go out this evening.

UPDATE: And this is what #AltTech in action looks like. In tangentially related news, the Brainstorm invites have gone out to the Brainstormers and OGs. They'll go out next to the VFM. Tomorrow I'll open it up to everyone else. We can seat up to 1,000.

Reposting for Vox or Markku:

Just tried to post links to Alpha Game Plan and Vox Day on a Facebook Group, got this message:

This message contains content that has been blocked by our security systems. If you think you're seeing this by mistake, please let us know.

One can still put in the link but FB will prevent it from being posted, if it is accompanied by the Facebook preview of the link. Apparently when Facebook access the content, the content gets flagged for some reason. Without the FB preview the link can be posted (for now). However, an attempt to post links to flagged content in comments to threads will be rejected, probably because the preview is automatically included, where possible, and again, the content is flagged for some reason.


I tried to post a link to a World Catholic Report article, and that got flagged as well.

Thank you kindly, sir. Creating my profile now.

Anonymous Mr. Rational October 01, 2016 4:32 PM  

Haven't mailed because I don't consider myself in either group.

I'll just sit tight, I'm sure it won't be long now.  Never used Twitter so this will be interesting, at least for a while.

Anonymous Pax_Romana October 01, 2016 4:39 PM  

I seem to be getting some problem on their end. Must be the sudden influx of people signing up.

Blogger Elocutioner October 01, 2016 4:54 PM  

They're having a network issue at the moment (cloudflare gateway timeouts.)

I'd suggest following @voxday and followers first then we'll follow back. (Perhaps we need a @Malwyn to keep them in line until gab gets lists?)

Well, I'm dread ilk and retired (for the time being) VFM, but right now I simply don't have time to be active on any social networks. It's all I can do to keep up here. So like you, I haven't emailed.

I did sign up and I received the notice that I was in line, but nothing since. I've white listed the email address the in line message came from, as it was spam trapped, and we'll see if they ever get to me.

Been on gab a while, though I don't have a VFM #, does that mean I am dreadilk?

Blogger Guitar Man October 01, 2016 6:10 PM  

No, Jim. You have to be initiated to become ilk.

Blogger Didact October 01, 2016 6:25 PM  

Dark Lord- I sent over my request late yesterday night EST requesting a Gab code associated with this address:

offensivebias@linuxmail.com.

Haven't received any notifications yet, but I'll keep an eye out.

Anonymous Filsta October 01, 2016 6:25 PM  

How do I become an arm of the Ilk? I've been reading VP (and other alt-righters) for months and would love to get involved!

Blogger Franz Lionheart October 01, 2016 6:49 PM  

Uhm, sorry that must have passed me by. There's a Supreme Dark Lord privilege to bypass waiting lists?

Will there be a second batch? Can I sign up to that one then? (I've only signed up at the Gab website so far.)

Blogger Dave October 01, 2016 6:52 PM  

@JimR if you have to ask the question then you are not dreadilk

@Filsta signup for the open Brainstorm Monday night (when Vox makes the invitation public tonight or tomorrow)

Anonymous IncoherentM October 01, 2016 6:55 PM  

I'm at 8 days and counting waiting for approval on Gab. I'm not VFM but have been reading here from almost the beginning, so I'll search for the tags above if I get on and start following.

Blogger WATYF October 01, 2016 7:08 PM  

Anyone else having trouble logging in? I got in via the initial link (during sign-up), but when I try to log in on other devices, it tells me the credentials are invalid. Did a couple password resets, but now the only way to "log in" is via a password reset link. Going to the login screen and entering user/pass just gives me the error.

Damn, you guys are using profile pictures and everything. I guess I have to up my game.

Anonymous Dave October 01, 2016 7:22 PM  

Holy cow I posted to soon; Georgia took the lead back with under a minute to go. Then Tennessee received the kickoff with 10 seconds on the clock, the returner ran out of bounds with 4 seconds on the clock. Then the Hail Mary and IT WORKED!

That was better than the LSU/Auburn ending last week.

I checked my privilege. It turned out to be a blank check that is good everywhere.

Hugely disappointing if it was anything less for the Supreme Dark Lord.

Of course, the life-sustaining pre-game ritual that preserves the vitality of western civilization. Then #collegefootball shall trend on gab; make it so.

Blogger Mignon510 October 01, 2016 9:02 PM  

I have attended 2 tail-gate parties in TN. In both cases, I was black-out drunk before the game. And those are the only times for black-out drunk.

Looking back, I wonder how the fans freaking watched the game. Sheesh. I am having flashbacks...

Blogger Dire Badger October 01, 2016 9:07 PM  

Apparently Eleanor from gab.ai still has me on the waiting list.
It's been over two weeks, but I know they are flooded, so I am being patient.

Anonymous Dave October 01, 2016 9:09 PM  

Vox, with the growth in the page views of this blog it's a shame that posts such as yesterday's announcement of the release of Feast of the Elfs is already off the screen; no longer on the front page so to speak.

In other forums, twitter/gab, etc one can pin items to the top of the page. Probably not with Blogger; however I would urge you to find a way to prominently display new releases and a link to that post on the "front page" for a period of days or a week. You've seen the flashing light on Drudge; I suggest something similar to catch the eye of new visitors.

Blogger Lovekraft October 01, 2016 9:11 PM  

I know this is a stupid question, but on gab, the tags with the "#" in front means they're from twitter, right? Still learning how to navigate.

Blogger Lovekraft October 01, 2016 9:12 PM  

Also, if you ever see @a at gab, it is the creator of the site.

Anonymous Dave October 01, 2016 9:20 PM  

@Lovekraft

# is a hashtag and serves the same purpose in twitter and gab

From Wikipedia: A hashtag is a type of label or metadata tag used on social network and microblogging services which makes it easier for users to find messages with a specific theme or content. Users create and use hashtags by placing the hash character (or pound sign) # (also known as number sign or octothorpe) in front of a word or unspaced phrase, either in the main text of a message or at the end. Searching for that hashtag will then present each message that has been tagged with it. A hashtag archive is consequently collected into a single stream under the same hashtag.[1]

VFM424 HERE. I got on gab waitlist 2 weeks ago but have got no code. Any way to fix it?

the tailgating is a game substitute, seeing as how bad the Titans suck, you don't care by the time they lose again.

Apparently this is the prime goal of Western Civilization: rampant inebriation sans superfluous gunfire.

Too funny.. the handwringing is palpable. SJWs really are the modern day Purtians - it drives them ape shit to think that someone, somewhere is engaging in politically incorrect speech and (gasp) is actually having fun while doing it. !

Blogger Zeke OF Confettii October 02, 2016 12:11 AM  

I have posted and will check as frequently as I can. I never Twitted even before it was converged. Hoping to wreak havoc.

Anonymous Just Stopping By October 02, 2016 12:21 AM  

The citation at Gab "Guidelines" regarding the UN/USA "agenda" clause is a bit of a revelation. Considering the despotic players and the turning over of ICANN, other means and methods will be needed to maintain freedom of speech as the definition of "agendas" will likely be very fluid as it is applied to freedom of speech.

Anonymous Brad1 October 02, 2016 12:41 AM  

I went to grad school st IT A and bartended on the side... often on game day morning!! what an experience!

On the other topic, I too am on the gab wait list and I am clueless as to what next. Been reading VP go more than 10 years, but never had the free time to get involved... I hope to change that soon, if someone has a hint on what I should do it would be greatly appreciated.

At the top of my google mail there are 3 tabs. Primary, social and promotions. I accidently found my Gab invite in the social tab as I have just found another 11 followers. So my invite for Gab was there but google did not put it in my primary. I suggest all to take a closer look at their inboxes.

Thanks, Dave.

So on Gab, for example, I'll type #VFM then message.

Then this message will be included in gab's #VFM thread.

I gabbed the aforementioned hashtags, and in one hour received 50 notifications.

No Nate yet, as far as I can see...it's surely a Yankee conspiracy.

It a weekend in the fall. Nate has more important things to worry about. :)

Well, from where I sit GAB is about as useless as tits on a duck. I signed up MONTHS AND MONTHS ago and so far..... nothing, crickets, zippo.

If they can't scale faster than this there's nothing going to be happening with them. Get cracking GAB. When the elections over your sweet spot goes out.
