thumped.com has been online since 1999, and after 20+ years it's not getting any easier. Sadly, running servers costs money, and paying for software licences costs money, and paying writers? That's right - costs money.

We used to have ads on the site and made enough money to cover paying the bills every month (and the writers most months), but then the ad companies got a bit too clever, and the privacy and tracking issues came up, and adblockers took off, and the backside fell out of the ad market... and that was the end of that.

So here we are. Maybe things will take a turn for the better over the next 20 years, but for now...


Tiers
The $5 Tier
$5 or more per month

The tier you get in return for $5!

The $10 Tier
$10 or more per month

The tier you get in return for $10! Nearly twice as good as the $5 Tier!

The $20 Tier
$20 or more per month

The tier you get in return for $20! Almost FOUR TIMES as good as the $5 Tier!

Enough to cover the server costs each month.
