    It would probably seem like a waste but hey just a idea out there XD

    I was wondering if like donators can get a skin alone for donators but has no stats. Its just a skin that shows you've donated before. Default skins are boring imo. but yea just an idea. So yep, donators skin with no stats it just shows you've donated before, you can also have like a word on the back of the skin "Donator" or something. :biggrin:

    Update Idea:

    Donations at least +6 months or more?
    Skins give negative stats but look funny / or a no stat different skin.

    Personally I think admins are a bit more deserving of that, but yeah, not a bad idea. Just need to make sure people aren't confused by someone having "donator" written on their back when they're an ex-donator....

    The only way I could see this happening is If you donate for a certain amount of time. For example 6+ months.

    A skin for donators only is an idea I'd consider but a skin for players who are no longer donors? That I can't support. What would give them incentive to continue their donator subscription if all they cared about was the skin? They'd buy it once and never again if they always had access to a custom skin and were satisfied with it. :confused:

    I'm all for rewarding those who have supported us, past or present, but running PF is a continuous cost and keeping subscriptions going is a priority to ensure that cost is met every month.

    You could make it a really silly skin for novelty. Like a zombified Barney or something. Or maybe something really subtle that wouldn't be very different from existing skins (Extra holster or pockets on model?). Also, Latino's idea of being donor for 6+ months.

    Yea I know what you mean Brian my bad :razz:inch: but like if we used latino kings idea of like +6 months of donating how does that sound?

    I like that idea of negative stats haha, you know a fun easy ugly skin that if you want it you'll have to donate at least +6 months or more or so.

    making a silly skin would just make people want it b/c it's different and silly/stupid. most ppl would donate once and be good b/c they have that one skin.

    i like latino's idea. u need a certain amount of donations.

    I think this should only be given to admins that've been admin for 1+ year honestly.

    Well, level 2 doesn't even get their own skin yet so why should donators or even ex-donators? As far as ex-donators go they do retain their Donator status on the forums forever, so that's 1 thing they get to keep, might not mean much to some but hey it's there. They're price is 5 bucks a month for a reason after all. We only have custom skins beginning at level 3+, which makes sense, since level 2 is an automated promotion given you didn't fuck up during your first month of adminship. We like to give back items that can actually be earned and not purchased per se, and since level 3 is the first level you actually really earn yourself, the first custom skin you earn begins there as well. Then once you hit level 4, another level you earn, you get yet another skin as well as free admin if you so choose to take it.

    It's a little different for donators because they don't work their way up the ranks or earn anything, I mean they're called DONATORS that's what they do they throw $ at you for in-game perks. That being said, anything for donators or ex-donors would, as mentioned, have to have some prerequisites attached, but even 6+ months of donator isn't much, that amounts to $30 - and I'd bet we'd see donators saying "Can I just give you the 6 month $30 price up front and get the ex-donator skin?" - I literally can see it now and then they'd cancel their sub right after, enjoy the perks for 6 months AS WELL AS the skin and then keep the skin once it expires. Or perhaps they wouldn't even stick around long enough to finish their 'term' so we actually end up with a little extra $ for unused services, at any rate this wouldn't be fair to donators who were forced to wait 6 months before they even GOT the skin and I can tell I'm going off on tangents and speculating more than I should at this point so I'll just stfu. tl;dr - donators aren't going to get anything unless a solid idea / plan is presented, and even then I'm not making any promises. As I said donator is 5 bucks a month because they don't get a lot. They get to use some custom skins, can join servers if they're full, get a nice little forum status goin on but other then that there isn't much so its 5 bucks. I guess the point I'm making is I'd feel crummy giving DONATORS or even EX ones for that matter a custom skin and not even giving level 2 a custom skin when we earn far more $ on admin subs than donator subs (6 months of donator = 2 months of admin), but I don't want to give level 2 a custom skin either as I explained the desire to earn something earlier in this post. You can see why this would require some prerequisites of some sort. To be honest I don't see it happening, but hey that could just be my pessimism.

    This time it isn't. This is truly, uniquely, a bad idea.
