Would definitely love to see the servers come back as I've mentioned before, but from an Admin perspective I can completely understand the problems faced.

Thank you so much for the opportunity and possibilities Nonsense <3

Well, the people have spoken. We are covered for about 4 months of server uptime  :)

Ayyy, that's promising.

It is my understanding that there were indeed other reasons the server went down such as your time to work on it, lack of support from others, etc. I know a lot can change in a year so I'm hopeful that maybe something amazing is going to happen with our community.

As always, if you need anything which I can help with then feel free to drop me a message. I'll probably talk to you later todsy about various things and so be ready for some Willdy!

I believe the only way to be able to cover monthly donations is by having a subscription based service, it should not be too expensive (no more than 5-10$ a month).

If every active player that loves this community pitches in monthly there should be no issue getting the monthly costs covered.

I disagree. I also fundamentally dislike the notion of subscription services being pushed everywhere. I like the system that is currently in place, where users can choose to support the server and receive a variety of features permanently.

That system does not work for a community this small, MY would either need more popular gamemodes that aren't buried in the server list or a large amount of people need to start playing smash and slope (won't happen)

MoronYard is a game server, not a service. There should not be a disparity between "subscription" users and regular users. Donations for gold bars and VIP ranks are different as they aren't continually charged, and they're less off-putting. Not everything has to be packed into a subscription service; it's not the answer.

If I went to a community website for a game server on any game and saw that they were taking donations for some reasonable incentives for the sake of keeping the server alive, I would totally understand. It's reasonable.

If I went to the same site and it was trying to justify a subscription service that costs as much per month as it cost to purchase the game itself, I would never return to that website. Simple.

Subscription services are divisive by nature. Surely there are better solutions... If you look at the donation progress so far, after only a few weeks, I'd say we have more than enough time to work out the kinks of the system.

I never meant removing the current system, although that may have been mistakenly implied.

In my mind I imagined more of a "save the server" subscription, like subscribing to a charity.

I'm not a fan of subscriptions being forced down our throat these days either, I was imagining an optional service here.

This community is not a charity case. If we strengthen the viability of the servers, improve the systems in place, and make an effort to outreach to a new and growing player-base, there is no reason to do this "save the server" nonsense. That's like giving up from the start.

I agree with Mark here. If people were interested in a charity esque system, they can do it themselves by donating what they want every month themselves. By no mean do we need a system that forces monthly payments to obtain a benefit, as Mark stated too many companies are finding themselves doing this already. The system we have now is working efficiently enough to last us more than a year as is, and with the idea of a new series of relics i'm we'll have even more donations coming in. I think we're in a stable spot where we don't have to be concerned about the donation system for a good while.

I'll do what I can to donate. It'd be nice to see this stay up.
