Donator slot

Recommended Posts

I think it would be cool to have a few donator slots on the server. You could charge like $5 or $10 and people who play often would be able to come in when the server is full.

We would love to do that as well, but due to monetization restrictions we are unable to offer that type of benefit.

Damn. Would you be able to implement that for say the respect system ? Like you would have to have around 100k respect and then it would give you that benefit.

What if it came as a reward for helping people out on the server ? That would then encourage people to help out the newbies and answer questions in general.

Lol I appreciate your persistence with the whole donator slot idea but it's not going to happen. Thanks for the ideas though

monetization restrictions come from the creators of the mods so we can't go against it if we want to remain official servers

But the last two ideas have been rewards. I pulled this from their faq.

"Monetization happens when players, unlike with donations, receive some kind of reward or perk for their money. This requires our approval. Some examples of allowed rewards are perks which do not affect gameplay, e.g. custom textures, skins, forum badges, reserved slots, product placement, in-game advertising and sponsorship. You can also sell in-game items which do not affect gameplay in any way (e.g. special hats, designed shirts with logos, etc.) – generally everything cosmetic is allowed."

I won't push this any further but it was fun to give an idea.

  c) The disclaimer of warranties and limitation of liability provided above shall be interpreted
    in a manner that, to the extent possible, most closely approximates an absolute disclaimer
    and waiver of all liability.

TL:DR:
You are allowed to:
* Play with this Mod/Addon in Arma series (Single or Multiplayer). Obviously.
* Distribute the Addon/Mod over a non public channel like a private repository.
* Unpack the PBOs, see how the stuff is made and learn how to make or port your own Addons.
* Ask us if you may use part of the mod/addon for your own projects. We are nice guys and are 
  willing to help you.

You are NOT allowed to:
* Modify/expand/reduce/alter/change the mod and share it with others unless you ask for a 
  written permission by the authors to do so.
* Monetize the content or use all or parts of it on a server that is approved for 
  monetization (you can’t get approved for monetization by BI when you use this Addon/Mod).
* Blame the authors for any damage (including physical, wealth, health, whatever) that 
  occurs from using this mod/addon.
* Upload this to SteamWS, PWS, your Website, GoogleDrive, Dropbox or any other 
  file sharing service/channel.

"Don't be a prick. We do this in our freetime and charge absolutely nothing for our mods. 
We are kind guys and willing to talk if you have questions. 'Is it ok if ...' or 'May i ...' doesn't 
hurt and we always reply in the right manner.” - Unknown CUP developer

Wow that's a lot! Maybe I missed something or didn't understand something. From what I see it doesn't say anything specifically about giving people a reserved slot. And as far as I can see they say that monetization is when you pay money for a product. Therefore you could theoretically reward players with a reserved slot by looking at the amount of time they have played or how helpful someone is, ect. Basically something they have earned but not payed for. I guess depending on the way you guys look at it you could see it as an advantage and that could be the part I am failing to understand.

Well to put it short, we have seen server owners get Cease and Desist letters from CUP on a daily basis.  If you see a server that doesn't run battleye....more than likely was BI banned for going against CUP license.  We are working on monetization approval, but it takes some time.

That sucks to see that happen! It doesn't make sense to me why they would consider in game things for things monetization. I guess if I was in your position and I saw servers going down left and right for stupid things then I would be hesitant to do anything without their approval.

Trust us when we say we wish that we could. We have servers costs and our donations do not come close to covering what we put out, but we do this for the players. So maybe one day we will be able to monetize in some way.
