It would be fair if atleast donating members had some sort of a priority over regular players.

But not something like what they have at some servers where you get admin powers and more for money.

Either way it wouldnt affect me.  Wink

Lets let it cool down a bit from all the excitement and then see how it is then.

Yeah, we need to get some sort of solution for waiting up to and above an hour to get into number 1

And Smudge, server 1 has always been this popular, even before the update, so there is no "excitement" to calm down from

I am in complete agreement. Why would people pay money for others to enjoy the server over themselves.

Reserved slots for donators. Idea

Overall I think reserved slots would lower the Quality of the Servers, the only way I can see this working , is that Players won't get kicked cause someone joined on a reserved Slot and that the Server doesnt show 25/26 Player and when you connect you end up with a Message that the Slot is reserved, as both of these things are a huge annoyance and would stop us from getting potential Regulars and as result of that potential Donators.

It would have to be like that the Server shows 27/26 in the end, No idea if thats possible.

Of course it pisses me off that it always takes forever to get in the Server, but I also wouldn't want someone to get kicked so that I can play.
I don't think i would have ever returned to the THG-Servers if one of the above mentioned had happened to me when I first got here.

Well, just my 2cents.

I think some people are forgetting what a Donation actually is.

Sadly not, that's the way things like Quake show it but for some reason Valve have never implemented that system. Also I agree with everything you say about why we shouldn't have reserved slots.

A donation is a gift. Would you donate to a charity and then expect something in return? :P

Anyway as someone said, it's half term, theres been an update, some kids are on study leave, all means it's going to be busier than usual :)

Try the Arena server out, it's actually quite fun (and competitive Wink ) and is good for improving your skills in class use

what i totally forgot, right now there are 7 individual Donators, how many ReserveSlots would we have?

See you next week in the "I had to wait although i donted the most money"-Thread and don't miss the exciting sequel "Hey that guy donated only 1pound and has the same priviliges"-Thread

:D

EDIT:

after reading that again, it might sound kinda harsh, i don't mean to make fun of the idea, offend anyone that shares the opinion or assume any of the current donators would do/say anything like that, but if u give donators a reserve-slot you would have to give it to everyone(not just THG-tag-wearing-Community-Members) and then I'm sure stuff like that could happen.

I think another thing that people forget is it's not just money that keeps the server going, it's things like: community spirit, personalities on the server, level of enjoyment, admining, etc. Takes more than just money to make it popular Smile
