I want to say there is no good way to go about this. I also want to thank everyone who's donated for a rank over the last 2 and a half years. Without your donations, we wouldn't be where we are today.
Please treat these past donations as donations and any future donations as donations only. It hurts my heart to hear people complaining they "wasted" money by donating, etc. If you are going to donate, it should be because you want to see the server live on. With our new choice to follow the eula, this is more prevalent now (and we've seen the hurting results of what it truly means to run fully eula-compliant as other server owners have regretfully stated.)
I want to take this process slowly so we can satisfy everyone's concerns and still get you the value you originally donated for.
We will be introducing new servers, new games, and new content in the future in an effort to provide more value and donation options so we can get the revenue we need to stay online. If you are interested in knowing just how much it costs to run the Primal Network each month, take a look at the monthly donation goal or DM me on Discord for a more accurate number. Keep in mind that I am currently attending and paying for college as well as out-of-pocket for the server when we don't hit that donation goal, all for you guys. Many server owners close their servers when they go to college, which I can now understand, and is why I am asking for your continued support, even if that doesn't mean another donation or a donation at all. I just want everyone in our community to have a good time and enjoy what we've built.
The Conversion of Donation Ranks
- GOD ($200): Lifetime Premium* + $200 donation credit**
* To claim your free months, please contact me in a DM on Discord ** Will be given as "points" on your enjin account in multiples of 100 (ex. $10 = 1000 points). Contact me in a DM on Discord to claim. While credit is only good towards Premium currently, you will have the credit for any future options we add.
And just to cover our a****, we reserve the right, just like with ranks, to change this at anytime (although we hopefully won't have to now.)
Even if you have a current donation rank, please consider stacking your free options with Premium if you have the extra couple bucks a month to support what we're doing and where we're going.
These price changes will go into effect on Monday, March 13th, 2017. All current premium members and those who obtain premium before this date will be locked in at the current rate of $5.00/month for as long as they stay subscribed. All premium members that join on or after this date, or let their membership lapse, will be charged the following rates:
We feel that this price change is necessary now that our network is fully eula-compliant and we are offering more services, servers, and have a ton planned for the future. We are providing value in longer term memberships as well. We are dedicated to providing you full value for your premium membership, and as always, are taking thoughts and concerns on the matter.
Keep in mind that if you join premium before this effective date, you will be locked in at the current rate for as long as you keep renewing!
Hey everyone, we know our uptime has been kind of spotty on some of our servers the past week or two. We apoligize and want to let you know that we upgraded from one dedicated server to TWO dedicated servers! We hope that we can continue to provide great experiences and open some new servers.
For the future, these are some of the packs/servers we plan to keep open:
- SkyFactory 3 (FTB/Curser Launcher)
- Mech & Magic (AT Launcher)
- Vanilla UHC
- Vanilla Minigames hub server
With this, we have already closed SkyFactory 2.5 and we are looking to replace Madpack3 (hasn't been updated in over a year) with a pack that has more support (Mech & Magic).
