Hi Crafters,

As most of you probably know, we're pretty much misusing the term "Donations". Most players are paying for ranks and other items and that isn't what a donation means.

To fix this problem, we're changing what we'd call "donations" to "supporting".  Here are the terms being replaced:

  • "I think I'll donate soon" to "I think I'll buy/purchase a rank soon"
  • "I want to donate to the server" to "I want to support the server"
  • "I am a donator" to "I am a supporter".
  • "Donate" to "Buy" or "Support".
We'll also be replacing the contributor badge on the forums (As it has the same meaning as Donator) to "Supporter". But we'll be using the Contributor badge to people who actually donate - those who didn't donate to get something in return. Avox, Jag, Arj and Priceys would get these badges for example.

Remember, you're not donating for items, you're buying items to help support the server. 

Price increase for packages.
Don't worry, we're not bumping the packages to $100 and more, like most other servers. Our goal here is to be affordable, at the same time allow us to grow into something better.

We really want to do more with our servers. We want to have more servers like Skyblock and a PVP server and increase the ram on our current servers so we can do more, but currently we can't really do that because donations are really on the mark. We have just enough to pay for the current server now and for a few months in advanced. We can't however, pay for a more expensive server and pay for that server months in advanced (It's not all about just upgrading. We have to make sure we can pay for months ahead as well). We're trying to be smart here.

Note, when I'm using "server" here, I mean a dedicated machine that holds all of our servers, just like a box. :)

To help with this goal of getting a bigger server box, with better specs so we can do more, we're increasing the prices on our main server ranks just a bit. Here is the updated packages with the prices.

  • Champ - 7.99
  • Gold - 20.99
  • Diamond - 30.99
As you can see, Champ went up by a dollar and Gold increased by $5. We hope this will help us do more with the servers in the future.

We'll finish the changes of replacing the term "donations" and upping the price of our packages by the end of tomorrow.

Thank you!

So what about Royal it stays the way it is? I assume, unless I missed it somewhere in the text?
Yeah pretty much stays the same.

May have over looked it, but do people who have already "Supported" have to pay the differnce?
No, you won't. We aren't going to let players sign up for something, then implement changes and force you to pay up or suffer because we say so.

Unlike certain companies...

This will only apply to people purchasing ranks from now on, so people are aware of the slightly higher prices and have the option to accept them if they wish.

Admins are currently discussion the situation. But the link they're talking about it far below us - donate to unban? Now that is one server that shouldn't exist. Ridunkulous.

They also discussed how Grum released some mineplex plugins and said they could sue mineplex? Idk.

Also about that "donating" for unban... *glances at Shotbow*
