    I'm currently looking to purchase a somewhat expensive ($40) add-on for the forums that will give it full-fledged group support: Social Groups

    That means clans will have a 'proper' way to manage themselves (with membership handled without the need for inviting people to conversations that you can never kick them from) and extra bonuses like private forums and suchlike. You'll also be able to setup non-clan social groups if you wish.

    Anyways, I need to raise the money for this. Plus the forums generally cost quite a bit to keep running, generally.
    So I've decided to setup a means for users to donate to the forum: https://forum.kag2d.com/account/upgrades
    In return, you'll be added to the 'Donator' user group. This group will get a few forum-specific perks.
    The perk is the ability to set your own custom titles and I will add additional perks as I think of them (I am very keen to hear suggestions!).

    Note about payment:
    PayPal is the only payment method available.

    The options available are $5 for 6 months or $8 for 12 months.
    For the duration of that time period you will be in the 'Donator' user group with access to any of the perks associated with it. When that period expires you will just downgrade to a non-donator and will not be re-billed.

    After donating, you can set your custom title here: https://forum.kag2d.com/account/personal-details

    Update: The Social Groups add-on has been purchased and installed! Thank you everyone who donated!

    Its a one-off payment. After the time period (6 months/12 months) expires you just downgrade to a non-donator without being rebilled.

    Also, thank you very much for the donation Worm :)

    You can set your custom title here: https://forum.kag2d.com/account/personal-details

    I love you. :3c Custom titles here we go!


    Are Guards/TEAM going to not receive the ability for custom title? I could understand some confusion there.

    Suggestion:
    $5 nets you the ability to change a single user title ONE time
    It can be anyone's user title, they can pay $5 to change it of course themselves.
    You'll be rich.

    That's like paying protection money only without the protection.

    That pop up thing scared the crap out of me:
    Sire - "Hey Eric!"
    Me - "AHH WTF I DO?"

    Will probably donate next pay-check.

    I don't like the idea of your donation status expiring...how can the fact you donated expire? I really think it will discourage people from donating at all (like me). It be much better if when you donated 5$ you got your custom title for 6-months then degraded to "Honored Member" or "Donating Member". After that you could pay to re-subscribe to the custom title service...

    I'm sure alot of people will acctually like to just donate, not "donate" to get a custom title, those people should be rewarded with a permanent special title.

    It's not too big of a deal as for $8 it's a year off, but some people do indeed have a problem with it.

    Forums do cost money to keep up and I see some problems there with everything, but they'll probably see how it goes.
