Donations and the Future

Post by SirPsp on Fri Jun 20, 2014 7:28 pm

Mojang will start enforcing their new EULA starting August 1st. From that date, we can no longer offer items and rewards for donating.

The existing ranks will still exist with all their commands and permissions but you will not be able to buy the rank.
The EULA says that existing ranks must become available by other means, so I'll make them purchasable using rewards points. The cost of Coal rank, for example, will be 10,000 Rewards Points.

Anybody who donates between now and August 1st will receive the donation package that they pay for and will keep it after the change.

Donating can still earn a special prefix, the ability to make your own suffix and to have a coloured name, because these do not affect gameplay.

Donating cannot offer any items, game money, rewards points, the ability to fly, or any other perks that currently come with the donation packs.

I don't expect to receive many donations when there is nothing to offer. If it gets to a point where the server has cost more money than it has made, I will have to close it down. At the moment there have been enough donations received to keep the server running until October.


One possibility that is allowed is to have a shared reward for all players when a donation is made. Such as having a donation goal which anybody can put money towards, and when reached all players receive the same rewards. I'm not quite sure how this could work or what could be offered, because I think the rewards would need to be permanent, even for new players.

I'm guessing that most servers won't do anything to change and won't get in trouble for it, but if complaints are made and we get flagged it could be bad. They did mention lawyers.

im sure you would get some kind of warning before they spent money to take legal action against you, wonder who would complain about us if that were to happen

Im assuming they would give a warning before taking action. so until then you could leave them up and then take it down once they do warn you.

I planned on keeping things how they are, I told Toten last week that I wasn't going to change anything, but it's good to be prepared for whatever happens

Firstly.. let it be known, I donated because I like playing here. It wasn't for extra stuff (I didn't really read the donation page that well Smile

Anyway some other things you can offer, which doesn't affect game play??...

recipe look ups in game howto craft something
removal of advertising in talk (if there was any)
daily/weekly lottery tickets -- give free tickets for x number of days
    --- ?? able to buy tickets with in-game cash (not sure if allowed or not)
party group options - eg for group projects
respawn at death location
more warps (love this, can always use more)
if there was a delay in warps  --- decrease delay in personal warps like other servers
customhead -- when u kill someone u get to keep their head for display purposes
fireworks on command                        
more compasses
bounty on peoples heads (only works when they turn pvp off/on)
command alias's (if possible)
minigames - able to play solo games
different colour chat text (persistant)
spell checking in chat (if at all possible)

just some stuff to consider

 lol!

lottery tickets are not allowed if the prizes for winning lead to items.
repsawning is not allowed.
more warps is not allowed (restricting gameplay from others).
delay in warps is not allowed.
treasure compasses are not allowed.
minigames are not allowed.

fireworks is a nice idea.
