Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

I need your help. Dieselpunks could be completely offline 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.

If you haven’t heard of Kickstarter before, it’s a secure online donation site. On this site, you enter an amount you’re willing to donate and if we reach our goal, then your pledge is processed like a purchase from Amazon. If we don’t reach our goal, no money is exchanged and nothing happens (except we fail to raise the funds and Dieselpunks goes away). It’s an all or nothing fundraiser, and it’s running until Halloween.

Here’s the link > http://kck.st/1pXzoZC

If every member of Dieselpunks or every one of our Facebook fans donated a dollar, we would be covered and would have funds left over to expand the site into new territory.

If we can’t cover our costs, we’ll be forced to shut everything down. Over five years of dieselpunk history, articles, music, movies… just about everything good about the Dieselpunks community will be gone. If you think what we do for the community is worth something, please make a donation and spread the word all throughout the internet that we need help.

To sweeten the deal, I’m offering gifts for our highest donors, including rare books and a limited number of advertising slots on the site. If you ever wondered how you could show off your dieselpunk or steampunk business in front of a targeted audience of millions, now’s your chance.

As a non-commercial site, we depend on our own hard work to see to it's survival. If you can help, Dieselpunks will not fall.

For the future,
-Tome Wilson, Creator/Curator of Dieselpunks.org

We should have one of these every week lol Say, Tome, when the new site is up, and if you can do something like it, why don't you put a kickstart tab for fellow Dieselpunks and their Dieselprojects. That way we can know what needs funding and it can be easily seen by all the good folk here.

Just pledged the $500. Good job guys. Dieselpunks is saved!

Oh and another thing for everyone. If we do meet the goal, still make a modest donation anyway. The extras will go to more stuff and that means more platforms for Dieselpunk to get noticed in. So WHEN we reach the goal, don't think another dollar will get thrown away. The glass may be full, but its on the top of a giant pyrimid of glasses waiting to be filled themselves ;)

Just ask anytime, Tome. I'm like a lucky 8 ball, nothing is said unless someone shakes it up! And do let me know of any other projects like Dieselpunkindustries TV, to Tome and any of you out there. I not only want Dieselpunks to stay alive, I want us to take the spotlight- to be the next big thing for the youngsters!

Donated 35 bucks.

A modest donation is all I was looking for, and every helping hand is appreciated.

I've made a modest donation, I'm not the most active member by any means, but I would hate to see this site and what it stands for disappear. Good luck, and keep the dream alive...

Looks like you're about to make your goal in the first 24 hours, Tome!  Leave it to Dieselpunks to make things happen! I love you all!!! Bogie's ghost is proud.

Stay in touch
