Hello, and happy new year!

I'm making this post to make everyone aware of why we, and all other servers out there, have ranks only obtainable from donating money (real money) to the server.

Running a network isn't a cheap thing to do, there are many costs, such as hosting (which includes web hosting, minecraft hosting, databases, and backups), set up fees each time we expand and add a new server, and costs for either purchasing plugins, or hiring developers to make plugins. Below is a brief outline of our 2015 finance table to make you aware of how much it is costing us to operate - it may be significantly more than you expected.

To sum up what is shown in the table, the months with a significantly larger fee in the 'Minecraft' column of the table are generally when we changed provier, excluding from November onwards, which is when we moved to a dedicated server, due to our poor experience with shared hosting providers.
