Donation Announcement & Updates
This month, for the first time, we have completely paid for the cost of the server off donations alone! We would like to thank everyone who has donated since the start of this month for contributing to this amazing milestone. Also a big thank you to everyone who has donated so far. We appreciate every donation we receive, and are happy that you all appreciate our hard work!
We are updating our donation benefits with an additional reward as well as a new requirement. As a reminder, you can view our current donation benefits here, and learn more about donating to the server here.
New donation perk requirement
While we appreciate all donations, we have had several users ask about our minimum amount. We've decided to require a minimum donation of $5 to be eligible for perks. You are still welcome to donate below $5, but there will be no perks available for users that do so. However, it is cumulative, so if you can only donate a dollar here and there, you can still get the donation perks once you donate $5 in total. This minimum requirement for perks is not retroactive, so if you donated below the threshold prior to this change, you do not lose your rewards.
New donation reward
We are introducing trophies as part of our donation perks, and with them are implementing a tiered system to reward users who have gone above and beyond with their donations. All rewards are cumulative, so you do not need to donate the amounts listed below all at once if you prefer to donate a little here and there. This perk is retroactive, and users eligible for trophies should have already received theirs. If you'd like to know how much more you need to donate to reach a certain perk, you can contact any staff member to assist you.
Each trophy will showcase the month and year that you hit the tier amount. Trophies are viewable on a user's profile on the website. You may also showcase your trophy on other websites, so long as you link back to Stonebound.
For members that have donated at least $20 in total.
For members that have donated at least $60 in total. Users that reach this tier have single-handedly paid for a month of server costs.
For members that have donated at least $180 in total. Users that reach this tier have single-handedly paid for three months of server costs.
As a reminder, Stonebound is owned and funded by Parzival, and run by volunteer staff members. We will never require donations to continue running the server. However, we greatly appreciate any and all donations we receive, and thank you for showing your support for what we do.
