Dieselpunks

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

If we pitch in over $500, but don't have a company or something needing advertisement yet, but will have one soon(like hopefully before Christmas time), then can the year advertisement thing be delayed until our project is started? If so, I'm going to do just that.

Dang. We're up to 1500 already? Excellent. ^.^

@JazzFlowers - Compared to the amount of people who use the site every day, we don't need to raise a lot.  Hopefully, everyone can chip in like you.

Thank you so very much, John.

Hopefully, we can get off this server and start fresh some place better.

Tome, I've just learned. I've already given my donation... which feels like a drop in the sea, but...

I've discovered this community only a few months ago, but it's already a bit like home and I don't want it to disappear. I'm sure I'm not the only one. 

Be steady. You're not alone!

You've given us all so much support, it's only fair that we help lighten your load, Tome.

I'm in.
