The t-shirts helped cover costs for sure. However, I'll disclose that for a little while now I've been paying out of pocket to keep the lights running, so we will be doing another clothing run soon for anyone interested in some Exodus branded gear. I'll probably make a run of clothes appropriate for the colder seasons coming up.

If you throw the donations page back up I'll put in some more capital. I don't need more t shirts but I like to feel like I'm helping.

Thanks to everyone who made this happen. I like knowing there’s a place full of people like me, except way better at math.

Yeah I'm happy to donate if you want to throw a page up. I can't agree with the bizarre sentiment that one can have too many tshirts though so I'll buy those too.

But first silkies!

Well done everyone who got this place going. You did well.

Also happy to donate, even though I don't have time to come here much at the moment. Good things deserve support.

Exodus Strength has become my home on the internet, I'm glad it's here. Neutral territory for strength nerds, and not Reddit-engine based.

I like that no-one is particularly ambitious about it, in the sense that they are trying to take over the internet or get rich from it.

To make this lack of ambition sustainable, I'd be glad to buy some merch. Silkies, sweatpants, socks, hoodies, even another T-shirt.

The offers to donate are appreciated, but not necessary. Personally I do not want to accept more donations beyond what people gave in the first month or two.

The goal is for the site to be self-sustaining, and our overhead is so low as a volunteer-run operation that this is pretty trivial to accomplish with things like apparel runs. It’s just a matter of us finding the free time to organize the next apparel run.

I am happy to buy a t-shirt or whatever but giving you guys money directly would be easier - or both I guess.

Thanks for providing the site and all that it entails, particularly the entertainment and education value.

Congratulations! If you need a spare pair of hands with anything I’m sure plenty of us would be keen to buy merch or spend time helping out.

Very cool place and thanks for the info on how it all started. Many thanks to all those behind the scenes who make it all happen! I've learned a ton in the past year from this place. Will definitely be in for a t-shirt on the next run.
