Gentlemint is a place to find and share manly things.

Featured Gentlemint Member: Zamoose

Our next featured member has been seen, at one point or another, by nearly everyone on Gentlemint. He catches spam quicker than an algorithm, and he's been around almost as long as the site has been live. He has posted some of the most prolific tacks, never ceasing to amaze or inspire us. It's safe to say Gentlemint ... Continue reading →

"Who is the average Gentlemint member, anyway?"

We get asked this question a lot when Brian and I do interviews about Gentlemint. Now, the reporter asking the question is really wanting to know the demographics of Gentlemint. Detailed percentage breakdowns of gender, age, location, and plenty of other unimportant stuff. When asked, Brian and I always explain that we have no ... Continue reading →

On Civility, Politics and Memes

There's that old maxim that when you go to the gym, you can talk about anything except two things: politics or religion. Why? Just in case you actually want to come back. We feel like Gentlemint should be a place where you're able to discuss your opinions and ideas, but, (and this is a really big but), the discussions should ... Continue reading →

Happy Fourth of July (and the New Gentlemint)

Howdy from Gentlemint HQ! We're taking a break from grilling bratwursts and singing our eyebrows to give you a little teaser on what's next for Gentlemint. In short: a ground-up redesign. Since we built the site so quickly, the design was put on the backburner until ... Continue reading →

New Feature: Collections

It's been pretty quiet here on the public side of the Gentlemint until today. Aside from adding Alex, we've been working on the nitty-gritty, behind-the-scenes aspects of Gentlemint that were initially glossed over when we built most of the site in 12 hours. Since we've launched, one of the most requested features ... Continue reading →

Introducing Alex

On the surface, things appear pretty quiet here at Gentelmint. People keep sharing manly links every day, we're inviting more and more people into the site, and every day more people are visiting Gentlemint. Everything is working smoothly. Yet, below the surface, things are bubbling. For starters, Brian has been working quickly on behind-the-scenes features that keep spammers and other ... Continue reading →

Ads on Gentlemint

When Brian and I started Gentlemint, we never dreamed that a little 12-hour project would generate so much attention in such a short amount of time. We always thought that Gentlemint would grow gradually, like a snowball rolling down the hill. Instead, the growth has been more like Chuck Norris driving a snow plow down a mountain. So, how ...

Saving to your mint

If there's a "most requested" feature that Gentlemint users have asked for, it's the ability to somehow save tacks that they like. Previously the only mechanism for that is to hit the like button, and then view your likes in your mint. Well, we're happy to announce you can now save tacks that you like in your mint. Simply click ... Continue reading →

What a short, strange trip it's been. In the past several weeks, Gentlemint has gone from having two users (Brian and I) to having thousands, with tens of thousands more waiting to start using the site. This begs the question—how did this happen and why the wait to join? To understand the answer, you should first know the story of ... Continue reading →
