2019 Anniversary/Fundraiser

This weekend marks the one-year anniversary of our pin database (which started out at flockpins.life, then evolved into flockers.net)! It’s hard to believe it’s already been a whole year! To celebrate, we’re running a giveaway in the Coop for 3 of our Funk Meters. We’re also making our 2019 Fundraiser pin available again. I’m not ever looking to profit from this website, so once we cover the costs of the website (hosting + licenses), all additional profit will be donated to LMK, the mental health/suicide prevention charity run  by Grateful Dad.

You can purchase our pin for $18 shipped by clicking the “Buy Now” button below.





As always, we appreciate the Flock’s support!

PIN DETAILS:

ABOUT LMK:

LMK is a suicide prevention and support community based on anonymous support. This is an up and coming venture for Dad. Let’s help him help others. Right now, he is working on developing an app so support will be just a few taps away.
If you would like to donate directly to LMK, donations are accepted via PayPal at letmeknowhowyouaretoday@gmail.com
Please take care of yourself. Reach out if you need help… you are not alone. ❤️

Potential Downtime Tonight

Just a quick heads up – my webhost advised that my server will be upgraded tonight (5/22) between 7PM EDT and 10PM EDT, and that there may be brief periods where the site will not be accessible.

Apologies for the inconvenience, and thanks for your patience!

The Story:

Our goal is simply to cover the costs of our website. Any excess profit from this pin will be donated to LMK, Grateful Dad’s suicide prevention charity.

We hope that we can do more fundraisers in the future. We have some more pin ideas, and there may be some special funk meters coming 🙂
We’re 100% committed to the Flock, and are not ever looking to profit. I do not, and will not ever, have ads, and I plan on keeping it that way.

Huge special thanks to Mathew Capron for helping us with this! He’s been extremely helpful throughout the whole process, we definitely could not have done this without his assistance. Check out his site at http://www.hew-art.com/

And of course HUGE thanks to everyone here! We wouldn’t still be doing this if not for the love and encouragement of the Flock!

Watch Pigeons show videos right here!

This is something I added a little while ago, but never really mentioned. If you haven’t noticed already, when you go to our Setlists page, you’ll see icons in the media column that denote if a show has audio (from archive.org) or video (from various sources, mostly YouTube) embedded in it.

As an example, check out the show from the Culture Room in Ft. Lauderdale (2/9/19). The full show is available in both audio and video form, playable right from its page.

If you know of any videos for me to add, please let me know!

Find us in Asheville and Raleigh!

Happy Friday, Flock! The flockers.net crew will be giving away our Funk Meter buttons at the shows in Asheville (Orange Peel) and Raleigh (Lincoln Theater). We have a limited amount, so come find us and say hi! We should also be at the pre-show meetup.

Catch-up time!

Apologies for the lack of updates lately. Just got back from a long trip that started with the TLA shows. We’ll be back up to speed very soon!

Minor New Feature: Play shows from archive.org

I added a minor new setlist feature today that lets you, when available, play the show directly from archive.org. There’s also a link to the archive.org page where you can download the show.

Endless thanks to the tapers that make this possible!

Screenshot Example:

As always, work continues to get all of the setlists loaded into the site!

New gallery – Modded Pins

Happy Friday! I just added a new gallery of modded pins. The are some talented people in the flock modding pins, and they deserve to be seen! If you have a modded pin, or mod pins yourself, I would love for you to submit it for display!

Check out the gallery here! (Also available in the top menu under Pins & Art)

The featured image showcases 4 feathers modded by Morgan H. that were inspired by Manny’s lights. 3 of them were auctioned, with the proceeds going to Manny’s GoFundMe. The remaining feather was sent to Manny himself. If you haven’t already, check out her FB group, Mo’s Mods!
