Quote from: Palker on Apr 07, 2021, 01:19 PMI'm not sure if this is some sort of late April fools joke but whatever The players supporting SFT(including myself) are donating and/or paying the monthly subscription on Patreon to *support the server* and not support a charity. If the players who support SFT and also have some extra money, they can personally support those charities but this is not a choice that you or the owners should make for those players. Also, it's kind of deceiving to have the money go somewhere else when nothing like that has been stated in the past as well. "Become a Premium User by purchasing any of our items, and help us cover **our** costs""Your purchases will go towards paying the server bills and server upgrades or unforseen expenses."
Quote from: Towelie on Apr 07, 2021, 07:08 AMThe charity has to be a legitimate one, and we were thinking either a suicide prevention non profit or a mental health non profit, but we are open to other suggestions.
Quote from: Palker on Apr 07, 2021, 05:55 PMWell it's not really "his" money and if the donated money is advertised as support for the server and then someone finds out that it is used for something else, that is technically fraud ... so there's that.
Quote from: Palker on Apr 07, 2021, 05:57 PM"A good point, but as a Patreon myself, I have no issue if the money I send to the server is given to charity. Also donating to a charity as a gaming community could also bring benefits to the server itself. Would be good PR and also helps give people who support the feel good of helping out people who are in need."I'm not sure what kind of good PR you're looking for because donating 50$ to a charity won't give us jack shit lol, that's just the truth, it's not a noticeable amount for anyone to pick up on it tbh. It's just not worth while for the server in any aspect, since such a low amount amongst the masses wont give us any attention if that's what they are looking for.
Quote from: Palker on Apr 07, 2021, 06:05 PMAnother important note is that if players notice that their money that they donate don't even go towards helping and expanding the community, they might choose to just keep it for themselves since it's obviously not supporting the server as stated. This would just do more harm than good in this case since (I assume) the cash flow from the server isn't that great due to its size.
Quote from: sommergirl41 on Apr 07, 2021, 08:03 PMthis is a good idea. maybe you should consider donating to black lives matter, considering you dismissed the support of it and threatened to ban people who showcased their support for it! gotta start somewhere, am I right?
Quote from: omelet on Apr 08, 2021, 04:02 PMPatron here. If I wanted to donate to a charity, I would have done that as opposed to donating to superfuntime. It would be in the server's best interest to save any extra money it accumulates for times of hardship (the good times aren't going to last forever) or to put that extra money into growing the server.
