Dieselpunks will not fall!

I need your help. Dieselpunks could be closed by Halloween, but you can keep it alive!

Since launching Dieselpunks in 2009 as a safe haven and inspiration for diesel and steampunk artists, we’ve become one of the largest and most active punk communities in the world. And now, over five years later, we’re going to be forced to close this community unless you can help.

The cost of covering our hosting and music licensing fees for 2014-2015 has exceeded what my paycheck can support. The solution is to raise the funds via Kickstarter.

Dieselpunks

Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

Hello all, I am a newcomer to Dieselpunk and am enjoying it so far. The music in particular, though I have always been attracted to the raygun gothic/art-deco styles that dieselpunk incorporates. I first learned about this style (directly) from Fallout 3 (one of my favorite games of all time, due in large part to the stylistic aesthetics). I have always been a fan of dieselpunk, though I've never been able to cite the art as the dieselpunk it is worth, instead substituting steampunk as the source. One practical question: The forum is for art and storytelling, correct?

Welcome! I just got here myself.

There are sections for art and storytelling, but that's not all the forum is for.
Welcome Wesley. Great to have you with us.

Caerulctor is right. We certainly love art and storytelling here but this site is for much, much more. It's for all things dieselpunk with a little steampunk thrown in for fun. Check out some of the links at the top and you'll see what we mean.
Art, music, storytelling, philosophy, history, fashion, DIY, mechanics, engineering, arcitecture, culture, lifestyle, travel...

You think of it, you can do it.

Welcome aboard!
Welcome to Dieselpunks!

The forums are for discussion along all topics. The groups are concentrated areas of people who may be professionals in the fields of music, engineering, and storytelling who wish to share ideas and hear feedback from their peers.
I've noticed various discussions about writing, most prominently of a short fiction challenge. I have not seen this anywhere, however, this is a reference to the theme-'o-the-month art/literature event, I assume?
SOOO Glad you asked! (That's not at all an evil grin, no matter what anyone tells you)

The Athena Exhibition went on during the month of May as an experiment--to gauge if we had enough interest in creating art/media/stories with the dieselpunk ethos and aesthetic in mind. Turns out...we did. The next Exhibition (so named after the World's Fair and Exhibitions that were so much spectacles of the time) will begin in July--we announce the theme at the beginning of the month, then put up the tarps and raise the scaffolds for victvolunteers' submissions via email throughout the month. At the end of the month, I post the entries in the Athena Exhibition forum all at once, and open the doors to visitors from far and wide to enjoy our creative efforts.

I'm still mulling over the theme for July. I haven't received any suggestions, so I've threatened to make the theme "girdles and sock-garters." ;)

Welcome aboard!

This means you are taking suggestions, yes? I may have an idea-----that is, if you're interested...
That has my vote. :)

I was thinking something like 'DieselDystopia', which could be art/stories with a 1984-esque nature.
Garters are good, too, though. That's just a concept, nothing set in stone, but you're the admins anyways, so it's existence is doubly unstable. I wish I had a banhammer...
Quick question: Is there anyway I can turn off the Twitter thing on my profile page? If so, how?

Look on the far right side of whatever dieselpunks.org page you're on. Scroll up or down until you find your name on the right side (near the top). Below that you should see the word "Settings". Click on that and you will navigate to a new page.

On the left side of that page you will see five links: Profile, Privacy, Email, My Page, Connections. If you click on Connections you will navigate to a page that allows you to control your connections to Twitter from this site. If you click on My Page, toward the bottom you will see a section "Dieselpunk's Apps" that allows you to control the display of the Twitter Tracker.
Thank you.
