Donations updates, Patreon campaign launch!, Update by Dr. Cossack

I've updated the Help & Contribute page with some key changes. As a starting point, all mentions of "donations", "donate" and similar have been replaced with "contributions", "contribute" and so on. This is done to avoid business and legal issues with Paypal, considering that neither I nor the Creeper's Lab are registered charities anywhere. As many of you already know, any donations monetary contributions sent my way are used by myself to help cover servers costs and fund future developments. This is only a name change, and doesn't affect anything else.


Launch of a Patreon campaign!

I'd like to take a moment to talk about the Patreon campaign that I just launched!

For those who don't know, Patreon is a crowdfunding platform used to give money to content creators to support them in their ongoing projects. Unlike other platforms like Kickstarter and Indiegogo, however, Patreon works on a monthly or by-release basis, engaging people for longer periods of time.

In this case, I chose to launch a Patreon campaign with a monthly target as the server costs are also monthly: this gives a opportunity for interested people to help on a regular basis, in a simple and centralized way. Note that this isn't strictly for Minecraft: the campaign is for all of my ongoing projects, of which Minecraft takes the largest share of time.

You can register for something as little as $1, $5, $10, or any amount you choose, every month. It's not a lot for you, but it can add up quickly on my end! You're also free to change the amount you give at any time, or even outright cancel straight from the website, as there's no minimum period.

To thank anyone who decides to jump in, I'm adding a few in-game rewards. The most notable one is the option to have a fancy particle trail following you whenever you go on the Minecraft servers! Dazzle others as they stare at your majestic show! For the full list, please see the campaign page.

As always, everyone will be considered equally, contributors and non-contributors alike. We're not going anywhere if nobody jumps in, although we could be going to new places if people get involved!

I invite you to check the page for the full details, and thank you for reading!

Looks like we've already got lots of shiny folks running around. "Shiny happy people holding hands..."

No kidding, I didn't expect to be more than halfway toward the second milestone in less than 48 hours! This is a nice surprise. :)
