  • Homecoming Team

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving (for those who celebrate) and are enjoying Issue 27: Page 1!


January Donation Window Reschedule

We’re moving the January donation window from December 26th to Saturday, December 19th as the 26th is Boxing Day in addition to falling in the middle of the later December holidays.


Other Ways to Help Homecoming

I’d like to take this opportunity to remind everyone that there are more ways to support Homecoming than just through donations. For a general overview of the different ways you can help Homecoming, check out this thread.


More specifically though, we’re always in need of more people to help test upcoming updates on our public beta server; the bug reports and feedback that we receive from testers helps us immensely. For more information on how to get started on the beta server, check out our Read This to Get Started thread and the rest of the Beta Forums.


Additionally, if you have Discord Nitro then please consider using a Nitro server boost on our public Discord server. Maintaining over 30 Nitro boosts gives all of our members new and enhanced features on the server including additional emojis, a higher upload limit, better voice chat quality, and our vanity URL.

Now, onto the breakdown of our finances for the past and upcoming months.

Schweeeet got in to make a donation again this month!  Happy Holidays Homecoming, you've kept me sane and grounded through covid-19.  I'm a hospital chaplain for a national cancer center; without y'all there'd be a lot of immune-compromised cancer patients who wouldn't get as much out of me.  I know that might seem odd -- but with my personality type, small "vacays" from the stress I'm in daily do a lot to keep me emotionally grounded and available to people who are struggling with cancer and alone in the hospital (no family allowed due to community risk of viral transfer) immune compromised during a global pandemic.  From me, from them, thank you!

Sometimes, entertainment does a lot more than entertain.
