Hey everyone, this is the official announcement that the StP discord chat server is going semi-private. What does that mean? Well, there's been a lot of drama BS and shit posting and other such nonsense mostly by folks that are discord whores and either not interested in participating on the StP website or have never even heard of it.

To combat this issue, we are requiring that anyone who wants to use the discord chat must associate their discord account with their StP account. Anyone that does not do this will be kicked from the discord chat server in 72 hours (Thursday evening). Please note I said "kicked" and not "banned". If you don't make the window, just click the chat link on the StP website to re-login to the discord. You will still have to associate your discord account with your StP account in order to access anything beyond the #read-me channel, just like any new account would.

If you would like to get this process out of the way now, just click the link below and follow the instructions:


If you don't care about the chat or never use it, there's nothing you need to do. You can just keep living your merry little lives here on the StP website :)

We are doing this to add some accountability to our users (users banned on StP will be banned from this discord channel and vice versa) and hopefully improve the quality of chat and bring things back on subject, which is the discussion of underground travel culture and it's associated sub-cultures. Of course if you have any questions, please reply to this thread and we will be happy to clarify anything for you.

I dont really use discord that much, but I will say that this is a very good decision IMO considering the recent issues yall have had over there. Thanks for the info. I may be using the chat more when I get a better phone.

The purge has been completed! we went from almost 700 users to just under 300, which is a much higher retention than I expected! Good job on everyone verifying their accounts ahead of time! I expect we'll have a few stragglers come back in later, so if anyone is having issues getting back into the server please let me know!

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $70.75 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $70.75 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $70.75 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

I don't represent this site at all, but "supposedly", the Couchsurfing site is getting their asses whipped by the Covid-19 situation and may soon shut down, just a heads up for anyone who also uses it
