(Geddit? Key? Clear out? I’m the best.)
Hello there dahousians!
As I purchased the Humble Weekly Sale today, I realised just how many spare keys from various sales, bundles and steam promotions I have laying around collecting dust.
It got me thinking. If I have a bunch, I bet most of you have some hidden away in humble bundle emails, or steam gift inventories.
Wouldn’t it be nice to find a loving home for them?
I’m going to be collecting a list of everything spare dahousians have to give away. We post up a list here and get them played! (My head is going full Toy Story 3 here :c)
Where applicable, priority for calling dibs will go to people who donated something, then people who’ve not received anything yet.
Post a comment on reddit or facebook letting me know what you’ve got kicking around!
(Spring key-ning almost as good, dang.)
Hello there dahousians, Jenner finally here with a post-donation drive thanks.
The response from you all has been astounding, with over £160 raised since we begged so lovingly. That’s enough to keep our servers going for 6 months, suckers!
In all seriousness though, a big thank you to everyone who donated. There’s no doubt that without you all we wouldn’t be able to keep running.
There would be a sudden global shortage of dick jokes, I would crit error due to missing files and Mastercheese would buy boots. The world would’ve gone mad.
But you stopped it <3
Jenner here, dahou.se community manager (honest), with a bit of desperate begging for cash money thinly disguised as a news roundup post!
Since last time we bestowed you with our presence, dahou.se had a birthday. As of the 4th of February, our little community is 4 years old! Hard to believe really, feels like I’ve been avoiding playing Dota 2 with Hideous for a lot longer than tha… I mean.. hi Hideous! Give us your Valve money?
In other news, long-term dahousian and stand-up guy draggles has gone off to Dublin to start working with League of Legends developers Riot games as an English Community Coordinator, congratulations! Go bug him on twitter to donate some of his fat stacks of Riot cash, or to give Jenners free RP, it’s very important.
Also, since this is the first real roundup, I’m including Starbound music because I can. McDombles is our Starbound band, who hit it off with some Chucklefish developers (and in one case, PC Gamer too!), still waiting on that lore reference, keep your eyes peeled!
And onto the hard part..
dahou.se, whilst awesome in very many ways, is unfortunately not self-sustaining. We don’t run ads on here, we don’t run ads on our servers and we don’t believe in ‘premium’ style perks. You won’t find a donator with 17 sentries on any of our TF2 servers, nor will you find us giving a new Minecrafter 4 stacks of diamonds on each visit as a thank you for bankrolling us. It costs €50 a month to keep Ash up and running, half of which is paid by our lord and administrator, MasterCheese.
No, we run on the sweet, sweet juices of your generosity. Every donation we receive goes into keeping our servers up and running, which keeps you all topped up with a healthy amount of fun. (I hope, if it doesn’t, don’t tell MasterCheese or else he’ll beat me again :c)

I know it seems a bit cliché but nevertheless, the dahou.se team wishes all our members a Happy 2014, and here’s to another year of great gaming experiences together! I know this is the sort of post GeneShark should be doing, but he’s slightly without internet access at the moment, so I sort of grabbed responsibility.
dahouse’s birthday is next month (I can’t remember exactly how old, I’m sure MasterCheese knows) so there should be a post about that next month. There are another couple of events planned for the near future too, so keep an eye out here for information on that.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday period and I’ll see everyone soon when people return to mumble.
Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to the grand launch of:
THAT’S RIGHT, I have finally actually bothered finishing the dahou.se website. We’ve got a shiny new theme, some actual content, and a whole bunch of awesome stuff in store for you*.
This will be the place for server info, community events, information about maintenance, and a whole host of community content about the amazing things that you guys have been doing.
This is obviously still a work in progress, so please do send me any feedback you have and I’ll do my best to make sure this is the best site it could be.
