TLO Donations Drive 2018

Hello everyone,

It's come time again for TLO to open its arms unto you and issue forth this plea: Although we enjoy providing you with the servers, games and events that you love, there is a cost involved. We rely on your donations to keep up with operating expenses!

Here's a breakdown of our annual costs:

RPG-X Server Hosting (2 severs) @ $10/mo: $120/ year
Space Engineers Server: $116.79/ year
Web Hosting @ $112.39/ year
Domain Name: $12.16/ year
Domain Protections: $2.88/ year

Total Regular Yearly Expenditures: $364.22/ year
Current Budget Reserve: $12

...and that doesn't include incidental expenditures, or expenditures in the case of an emergency (which we've had in the past).

The Last Outpost doesn't have ads. We don't monetize any of the services we provide in any way. Nobody in the Cabinet gets paid *sniff*. We're here because we love it, and we know you love it too - which is why we're asking now for your help.

Our goal for this drive, which will run from today and will close January 22nd, 2018 is $425 USD. We ate through our reserves last year when we added the Space Engineer's server. The Space Engineer's server cost was offset somewhat by switching to cheaper hosting mid-year, but it still burnt through our reserves as we hadn't budgeted for it in 2017. The goal of $425 reflects meeting our operating expenses, and rebuilding our reserves so we are near our goal of having $75 in reserve at all times. Any amount we receive over our goal will go to further bolstering our reserve funding for any unexpected expenses.

Donating is easy, just click here or on the many links on this and other pages and fill out the simple form. Via PayPal, we accept most currencies and all major credit cards. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me.

I sincerely thank you in advance for your generosity in contributing to TLO. Your contributions help keep our community going--and for that, we all thank you! :)


Serris- $500

An amazing outstanding spleentastic shout out to Serris who has shattered all records at TLO with his FANTABULOUSLY generous donation of $500, making this the shortest donations drive in TLO history!  ^_^ ^_^ ^_^

We thank you so much Serris for your outstanding generosity! Although we have exceeded our goal, we will continue to accept additional donations if anyone is so inclined. All donations we receive will go to building up reserves further--but now that we've met our goal I shan't be pestering anyone!


Outstanding!!!!  ^_^ ^_^ ^_^ ^_^ ^_^ ^_^ ^_^ ^_^ ^_^ ^_^ ^_^ ^_^ This is a TLOian spirit!
