Hey folks, it looks like your favorite website and mine might be needing a little bit of financial assistance. the site is running a bit dry to keep the servers running so won't you consider donating to the Patreon account?

Here's a message from our dear leader:

We could easily do listicles of the "Top Ten Hulks We'd Like To Make Whoopie With" like other sites, but we're not about that. If you like what we do, or hate what we do and want to keep hating us, consider pledging even a dollar a month to help us keep the lights on. Plus, it'd be cool to pay contributors. Thanks.https://www.patreon.com/theouthousers


Hopefully you enjoy our forums, chaotic as they may be. Help us Outhousers, you're our only hope…

https://www.patreon.com/theouthousers

Thanks.

Wouldn't this have made a bigger impression, or any lasting impression at all, if Tim had posted this himself? This was already bumped off the first page. I didn't even see it until one of our forum posters had a link to it in another thread.

I also find it really questionable using the forum for this. When Tim first took over he outright stated that he didn't care about the forums, he didn't want responsibility for them because he doesn't care about them. Ever wonder why there's barely a Senior Staff presence here in the forums anymore or why no fixes or enhancements have been made? There you go.

We have basically become the kids in "Flowers In The Attic". Out of sight, out of mind, right? Eventually they'll just die off.

Unless you need to beg for money. Oh look, now we're good enough to warrant some attention.

Ever since I joined I notice a lowered quality of life maintenance here on the passing years. It's been especially been bad the last couple of years.

I would gladly help out on pateron. But you guys are asking us to invest on a ship that already has leaks that's been there of years.

This post makes me sad. :-(

EDIT: After thinking on this for a spell, it occurred to me I almost never visit the front page of this site anymore. It just struck me the material there vacillates between being vacuous and adolescent. There is no wit to be found there anymore. The posters on the threads, which apparently have little to no attention paid to them, are far and away more interesting and better thinkers than the people actually running the main site.

Short answer: There's no way I'd pay money for the front site.

If I had money, I'd pay :( I finally got back to this place, missed it terribly.

True that activity is at a low--kind of a big low, but that doesn't mean it cant pick up again. Just wait for another forum to upgrade its shit, piss off the masses and they'll migrate here to start Earth 2 RCT :lol:

But really, life is a roller coaster and eventually things will pick up, if the site lasts long enough. Though I recall a previous thread about donations it being bluntly stated that it'll get paid for regardless, so I doubt the site will die if we dont help. I still wish I could. Its so cool to get to come here and shit isnt policed out the ass. Some basic decency and you're in the green.

Not sure what you mean by senior staff, but Zechs is on the forums a lot.

I didn't consider this begging but everyone's got their opinion. The outhouse has been kind of a of a big dysfunctional family for me, and I would be bummed if it were to go. That being said, if no one cares about it, then I suppose it's bound to happen.

When Jude was here the Outhouse Senior Staff was defined by their roles not by how long they have been here. Anyone who is a Moderator or higher is considered Senior Staff. Even though Zechs, GLX, you and I have been here a long time we are all in the Editor or Writer roles. Gavin is an Editor and that same role was covertly granted to his alter "Tess" who went active the day after Gavin's "departure" a couple years ago.

I didn't mean to imply that you were begging. You're a good guy and I believe you posted this with good intentions for the site. If you weren't aware of Tim's stance towards the forums I can see why you didn't understand my statement above.

For the last couple of years the OH has been a good place for me to randomly pop in and air between changing bed-pans round the clock. I can't and won't pay anything but I try to help build up activity.

Yikes!

But I had a poke around the front page and I agree.

The OH started as a community. It should always be a community first.

Cant have a site if you alienate the readership.
