Observations and Suggestions.
The past few months have been tumultuous times at RedState. Beginning with a emotional and sometimes divisive Presidential Primary, then moving to RS 3.0, constant server errors, Drudge visibility (more traffic, more errors), and an increase of new bloggers (along with more mobies and trolls), I’ve seen the quality of work here degrade and the respect we’ve usually shown often go out the window.

PSA – Google’s Chrome Works Much Better on RedState 3.0
Hey gang! I don’t get signed out constantly for no reason when I use Chrome as my browser, and RS seems to load a bit more reliably as well. Firefox isn’t any better for me than is IE 7.0 or the 8.0 beta, but Chrome seems to do really well. Anybody else using Chrome?
Breaking: RedState Has Lost It’s Nerve, Now Backs Massive Bailout
It looks like both Leon H. Wolf and Erick Erickson are now bending over backwards for a $700 Billion Bailout! And on top of that, another article in support of the bailout is promoted to the front page. Is Moe next? ((Ops, spoke too soon…))
At the risk of ticking off Erick, Moe & (especially) Neil …
I mean, I understand that the number one priority is to get the site and its new user functionalities running nice and smooth. But … notwithstanding RS is “free candy” the template of the site is depressingly dull compared to what came before in 1.0 and 2.0. I recommend a lot more white and red, a little more light blue and a heck of a | Read More »
In Defense of Redstate…..
In today’s New York Times, columnist Nicholas Kristof wrote an op-ed about how Republicans are trying to “otherize” Barack Obama by playing up rumors of him being a secret Muslim or even the anti-Christ. In his column today, Kristof listed Redstate (along with Jerome Corsi) as one of the Republican institutions that was attempting to “otherize” Obama with the secret Muslim/anti-Christ rumors. Kristof even placed | Read More »
500 internal server errors are killing this site
It is almost gone, Noo ne can spend the time anymore fighting this thing.
Internal Server Error 500 Client Side Info
I just want to pass on this info in case it is of some help. My browser, firefox, is set up for web development and in the error console this is what is posted when I get that internal server error 500. [thumbstrips] [Exception… “Component returned failure code: 0x80004005 (NSERRORFAILURE) [nsIScrollBoxObject.ensureElementIsVisible]” nsresult: “0x80004005 (NSERRORFAILURE)” location: “JS frame :: chrome://thumbstrips/content/scrolling.js :: thumbstrips_skipToCurrentHelper :: line 186″ data: | Read More »
The Unofficial RedState FAQ, Version 3.0
What is “NT”?Well, in some contexts, it stands for “New Testament,” but not here at RedState. “NT”, sometimes stated as or N/T or some other permutation, stands for “No Text”. Posters often use it to indicate that they are not posting any text in the body of their posting. When perusing the “Recent Comments” block in the middle of the page, one can then tell | Read More »
Culture11: Radically Taking on Culture
Okay so had to have noticed that liberals dominate entertainment, culture and most things that are deemed “cool” in society (aside from guns, motorcycles and other badass endeavors of the sort). And Barack Obama sure isn’t oh-so-close to becoming President because he’s a great leader or has good credentials. He’s where he is because *he reached into American culture and – he got to them.*Republicans | Read More »
Bart’s Clever Use of Redstate
Sorry Directors, if only I had as good a reason. I will endeavor to improve upon my duplicative posting.
Someone needs to say it… Hey Neil! Nice job!
Thanks for all the hard work the last week or two making Redstate 3.0 useable. I’m seeing conversations starting back up, the recommended list seems to be more normal now, and we don’t appear to be clogging up the server. Job nicely done, although I know you’re still going to be working on things. Commenting rules on this blog are: 1 – This is NOT | Read More »
New additions to the RedState Store
We’ve added to the RedState store. You can pick up a host of items including these two new designs:
Please help (or… I miss the old RedState)
All my diary entries are gone. Nor can I access them on the archived site. This server is V E R Y S L O W . . . The main page is not showing correctly. Everything is in one column. It seems harder to navigate. Maybe that’s just the learning curve. Has such a thread already been written? I don’t know but if there | Read More »
The Audacity of Jokes and Requests (again?)! Dreams about my RS: I sued the RedState.
What’s happening to RedState and the rest of the Conservative Bloggers? It seems to me that all us have also become “unwilling accomplices” of the Obamedia. We have become reactionists: our eyes are fixed to Obama in his on-going pleasure trips abroad. We have become “defensive” in our strategy to promote our Republican/Conservative Candidate, Senator John McCain. We have been wasting our energies to find | Read More »
What I like about RS 3.0
And no, this is not a total suckup diary! Of course, there are things that I don’t like so much. But these have received a fair amount of attention, so my own 2 cents would be redundant. The “My profile” page is the best! It displays all your comments, and allows one to quickly respond to comments on one’s own comments without trying to remember | Read More »
