As a result of being EULA compliant we are going to need to start doing some things we normally wouldn't do to earn the money needed to pay the bills.
For that, I decided to give a try to advertisement, on Survival first.
How this will work -> Every few minutes a link will pop up in chat containing an ad. If you click that ad you get a reward (ranging from particle effects, cookie or even a vote token) and in return SFT makes some money. This is probably not going to work (I spect us to make around $20 / mo which is not worth it) so in all likeliness it's for a month as a trial period.

The ads will pop up in game starting ~30 min from now ocne I'm done setting up the plugin

Example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pe1AUxw5efk


NOTE: How this works is, players will get rewards to click on ads.
Currently the rewards are (work in progress):

  - command: "money give <player> 500"
    description: "&b[&6Ad&b]&6<player> got 500 EmpBucks from /ad!"
    probability: 3
  - command: "give <player> cookie 1"
    description: "&b[&6Ad&b]&6<player> got a cookie from /ad!"
    probability: 3
  - command: "give <player> milk 1"
    description: "&b[&6Ad&b]&6<player> got some milk from /ad!"
    probability: 3
  - command: "give <player> 320 1"
    description: "&b[&6Ad&b]&6<player> got some cooked porkchop from /ad!"
    probability: 3
  - command: "givetokens <player> 1"
    description: "&b[&6Ad&b]&6<player> got a vote token"
    probability: 3
  - command: "money give <player> 1000"
    description: "&b[&6Ad&b]&6<player> got 1000 EmpBucks from /ad!"
    probability: 2
  - command: "give <player> 384 1"
    description: "&b[&6Ad&b]&6<player> got an xp bottle from /ad!"
    probability: 2
  - command: "give <player> 435 1"
    description: "&b[&6Ad&b]&6<player> got beetroot seeds from /ad!"
    probability: 2
  - command: "steveco givekey <player> 1"
    description: "&b[&6Ad&b]&6<player> got a SteveCo Key"
    probability: 1
  - command: "give <player> 371 1"
    description: "&b[&6Ad&b]&6<player> got a gold nugget"
    probability: 1

Hey, anything in effort to help save SFT as much as we can is definitely worth the shot.  :)

I will do whatever it takes to save sft. Even if it means clicking on an ad xD

Zesty

Factions with this would be like reading the comments of a youtube video whilst the adds are on.

But besides that, what ever works :) Hope this does at least something!!
Greed may not be good, but it's not bad, either. You humans think it's for money and power. But everyone wants something they don't have.
Survival is the only way. Live on and learn more.

Everyway to help SFT is useful. I will click those ads to help SFT!

I hope with all my heart that this is successful.
SuperFunTime is an outstanding server and deserves to stay as one.
We'll definitely try our best to help you, Tow.
Great work. :diamond:

With the EULA this is pretty much what the future looks like but imagine 10x more ads and tons of product placing. I'm not saying SFT will get liek that I'm saying Minecraft servers in general will get like that.

What about running adds on the website? i know it's super annoying most places, but there is a lot of extra space on the sides of the page.

That brings almost zero revenue. in-game are bound to be more succesful.

Thank you for helping SFT Tow.

IMO 20$ a month is better than 0$ a month. Doesn't hurt to try.

ZachAttack1170

Clicking on an ad isn't hard, and it's a small price to pay to save SFT. Will definitely do it!

Towelie

Added to pixelmon as well (@Dpa1991 check the config to see the rewards I made I think they aren't op. I stayed away from rare candies and stuff)

The ad revenue should hopefully be ~$50 / mo

If you want you could do it for bteam, I'm sure the players wouldn't mind, and it would only help sft.

I really don't mind, if it helps sft significantly then I am sure it won't bother anyone.
Whether we are alone in the universe or not, both are equally terrifying.

All I do is click on the ad, and then go back to playing while the ad runs it's course. I am not affected by the ad being played, and it's an easy way to make money (both in-game and for the server).

blalp

Should this be in all of the servers? I don't really see a harm in it. IT is a little annoying, but i would way rather watch an ad than pay hard cash.

Sorry for what?... this is cool the ads are short and I get a reward. they also help the server thrive which is a win win for everyone. 8)

Exactement.
Just turn off your sound and keep playing while they run in the background xD

Just use a different browser, I think you could even type the url to the ad into a phone or device (though that's more effort)

If you have an ad blocker either disable it for that page or use another browser such as internet explorer / firefox etc. You can have multiple browsers!

It'll be really fun to be PvPing or drowning in lava then suddenly an ad comes on
