Christer had posted on discord the other day to say he would need new drives for the database server and gave an estimated cost of €500. Luckily he appears to have optimised these somewhat and they are working more optimally than they were but it got me thinking.

The site costs on average $150-$200 a month to run. The very generous patrons on patreon donate about €300 per month so this covers the day to day spend but not any larger expenditure and certainly the amount of time that Christer puts into this site.

I've been playing here for nearly 10 years and would call people I've met here amongst my closest friends. FUMBBL is a great thing which is bringing us together in these difficult times and I'd like to give something back.

Lasgalen and I will be running separate underworld goblin and troll teams (no skaven) in the black box for the month of June. I am aiming for at least 50 games. The purpose of this is to be a fundraiser for the site.

I would like to offer you the opportunity to sponsor either my or Lasgalen's team.

You could:

1. sponsor a player for a flat cost of €5. This will allow you to name the player, choose a portrait and select a development path

2. pledge a certain amount per victory (eg, every game I win, you will donate €1

3. for every opposing player I kill you will donate €1

4. for every dwarf/chaos dwarf team I face you will donate €3

5. if I finish the game with a better record than Lasgalen's team, you will donate €10.

These are only suggestions, you can realistically donate any amount of anything. If you fancy donating €0.69 for every time a player manages to surf an opponent or €4 every time we take pass block then have at it! Don't forget to include a cap on your pledge if you wish. Otherwise I will keep taking pass block.

Please post below if you would like to take part by pledging.

Great idea! I'm up for it. How about 2euros for every dead or perm injury to a chaos/nurgle/chdorf player? Not including apo saves? If 0 I'll put in 5euro.

For anyone reading this, one reasoning that I like to think of is figure out how many hours a month you play? Many premium games cost 10-30 euros a month. If you are playing here 5hrs a month, how much would you value that time?

Clearly it's difficult times for many and if you are not in it position to pay more, please don't. But for those who are in a safe financial position, keep this on mind. Even 1 euro a month is huge if 100 people do it.

I'll sponsor a couple players... one on each team.

Name: Greasy, position: Goblin, skills: sidestep, two heads, wrestle on double, any stat increase.
Name: Pox, position: Goblin, skills: foul appearance, disturbing presence, dirty player on double, ignores stat increases.

I'll let y'all decide who goes to which team...

I toss the moneys into the Christer pot today.

Whats the most efficient way to donate? Patreon/Paypal/Other?

(i.e. Who takes the lowest cut?)

Paypal gets the most money to Christer but Patreon lets him have some idea of how much he's getting. Different courses for different horses.

I personally give his cash to a goblin and throw it as far as I can towards mainland Europe

I think patreon take about 5% plus depending on where you are i think you pay VAT / local tax on top of it

paypal. not certain but i think if sent to "friends and family" its low, like 1%?

I'm not exactly throwing in a large sum at the moment but that 4% is still 4% I rather went to FUMBBL.

It took me ages to get round to setting to up. At some point I'll get round to changing it over I'm sure

Most of the best fundraisers I've run for this site have been ones where coaches gave based on their own outcomes. That way they get involved, and if they're giving based on good things for them, they're really happy to give more.
