To those addicted to GLP...
To those addicted to GLP...

I've been coming to this website for 15yrs or since it's inception. A lot of things have changed and a lot of people have come and gone. I too have almost been totally consumed by this website (Aussie Bloke started it for me).

From Cataclysmic Earthquakes, Earth ending Volcanic eruption, Economic collapse, Solar flare, Asteroid\Comet Impact, Planet X return, Alien Invasion, Super hurricanes, NWO\Illuminati Agenda, Politics, Wars, .etc......

I've learned over the years how to filter the BS and how to walk away and take a break (because it can consume you if you let it). More on how I tamed my addiction below.

This website at its heart is a Breaking News, Mega DOOM 24/7 at any MOMENT!! like no other site on the Internet...

BAR NONE!!

It's Internet CRACK! DOOM porn on steroids!! I think the big hook of this place (at least for me) is: FOMN

Fear Of Missing News!!

Since News breaks here usually hrs sometime days before anywhere else, I find myself constantly checking to see what's new, if I missed something. ADDICTED like no other and loved it!!

Want to know what true addiction is??

Having absolutely no programming experience (NONE!) whatsoever I took a online course 'How to Program in Python'exclusively just so I could write a program that would automatically check GLP (at intervals I set) and notify me via e-mail if there was breaking news (2000 users online or more).

This was how I was able to break my addiction of constantly checking. Now instead of constantly checking every couple of hrs I only check every couple of days unless my GLP Alert program notifies me of more than 2000 users online which indicates 99% of the time something MAJOR is Happening somewhere around the world.

Just a tip to Trinity, might be a value to your paying members and GLP if you added a feature like that in which your members would be notified via email if online users reached a certain amount(maybe they could sign up for the service).

Just a thought?

For me, the hook is not impersonal.

It's literally a community, unlike any other I've been a part of, though much of it is now distant and silent.

It's not about missing news to me, but rather missing fellow open-minded views of what's in the news.

Most of it got drowned out by the pro-Trump clamor that started in 2015.


A select few have attempted to turn what used to be, in adjunct unpopular corners, a free-thinking, open-minded venue into a politically biased shithole.


I like your idea, OP, about email notifications of, for lack of a better term, SHTF scenarios.

If strict guidelines were laid out for what constitutes a super-pin worthy thread (that don't include political polls created by #1), then it would take a few seconds to script an e-mail notification option for upgraded members to receive e-mail notifications of super-pinned threads.

For clarity's sake, I only mentioned an option for upgraded members as it would be the easiest way to institute a new option such as this - solely to illustrate how easily such an idea could be integrated.

$1/month (just throwing out a ballpark worth - fuck it, let's throw out $10/year option too) subscription to e-mail notifications of super-pins as a wholly separate service apart and independent of registration as a member is what, I think, is along the lines of what OP is suggesting.

Users online can be faked. Feedback from what is super-pinned and what is not is a different ballpark.

More work involved, but more income for the site, too, I would think, since though my views differ, I know for a fact OP is most definitely not alone in his/her views of the primary value glp has to offer.
