Donations are open for July!

Recommended Posts

G'day Gamers!

A new month brings with it a new donation goal! Again we would love to say a massive thank you to everyone for helping us reach Junes goal so fast!
Over the past month, we have been able to add more content to the community such as a Squad server, which has been full constantly since we launched last week at 78 players!

As previously stated, we are committed to sticking to FiveM's Terms of Service and will only accept donations directly related to the operation of the community and will not accept donations for profits. As it is a new month, donations are available again! Below are the costs for the month, which total $768.

We had a tough thought process deciding how we would handle subscriptions compared to our donation goal. 

a) We don't want anyone subscribed to not be able to resubscribe once the goal had been reached.
b) We don't want to go over the goal or we risk getting into trouble.

What we decided was that we will count all previous subscriptions at about 50% value for the next month's goal, expecting some will resubscribe and some will not. We will see how this goes for July and adjust it accordingly in the following months.

Changes to donation rewards

We will no longer be offering donations for in-game cash directly in FiveM. The cash store has been removed. From feedback from the community it was obvious that while it was a popular reason to donate, many people found it to be pay-2-win ish, including myself. As such, this reward has been discontinued. We didn't feel comfortable with some players donating $50-$100 just on buying in-game currency. I don't feel comfortable with that and would much prefer a lot of people donating a little bit rather than a few people donating a lot.

This also means that players cannot just donate any amount they want. You will be limited to only being able to donate up to $20/month for the highest subscription (however, you can also purchase the one-off vehicles whenever you like). While we have great respect for those of you who want to throw your hard earned cash at the community, it is probably better spent in your wallet. We are looking into new rewards for other other services such as Squad and CSGO in the near future.

To supplement the removal of cash rewards from the donation store, we have buffed up the subscriber rewards. Adding a monthly payment (payable on the 1st of the month) to subscribers. This is an attempt to make subscriptions the main donation type of the server. This should also give incentive to members to resubscribe.

How to resubscribe

We have undergone a change on how to donate in the last month, adding the donation store. For those of you who subscribed without using the store system, you will need to subscribe again through this system on the date at which you donated last month. For those who used this system, you should be emailed a renewal notice if you want to donate/subscribe again. You do not need to pay this if you want to discontinue the subscription. Note: You will need to pay this manually as far as I am aware it does not automatically take money from PayPal.

Anyway, that's all from me. The Donation Store is now open for a limited time until we hit our donation goal for July. Thanks again to all the subscribers and we'd love to hear your feedback and suggestions on how we can improve our donation system!

Kind Regards,
Zaydan

Hey team, once our subscriptions have been placed is there a time frame on when they will be delivered in game. Just don't want to miss out when my new car and subscription come through.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hey Chookie,
they try to apply them as soon as possible, you could always put in a support ticket, or see one of the donation team on teamspeak.

Support Ticket is best, that way the person responsible deals with it directly.

Just a quick question, how do we get our subscription status updated on our TeamSpeak and Discord as the form didn't ask for those usernames.

Hey Parj, as mentioned above, best chance would be to log a ticket or join the support group on TS. 

 

Hope this helps :)
