    I think the forums/ts3/server will need some form of payed vip. I feel that this could be the form of pets that you can buy on a weekly basis or you could pay for chat colors. You could also have it so you pay for temporary spawn items so you payed say 5$ to have a flashbang spawn every round for a week. This could help to advance the community and invest people in Distinct.

    I do agree we need some sort of VIP system (which is very easy with XenForo). But as for the VIP features, I'm not sure I agree. It seems that it could get a little spammy. I just think we should have basic VIP privileges, at least for the time being.

    I plan on adding some sort of monetization, but only things that are not going to effect gameplay too much or make it unfair.

    Like Kieran said, VIP things shouldn't effect gameplay too much. I would like to hear any suggestion you make about adding VIP stuff tho.

    Thats the cancer of JB and other CSGO servers. Before joining you have to wait up to 15 mins to wait for all the stuff to load. As a custom characters, some othet CT and T skins would be fine if they arent too much off topic.

    Monetization is the thing that keeps servers and communities running. I don't remember seeing a server/gaming community without some sort of a donation system.
    Hosting a server has it's price, it may not seem a lot now but if we want to grow as a community we will have to eventually expand to more servers/games.
    That's why we mainly need it, to cover the costs of everything so we don't have to spend our own money every month to keep this running.
    I have some experience with running game servers and it's not easy to get a bunch of players to play on your server and join your community. But we shouldn't forget that there are always people who want to help the community grow by donating.
    And the donator perks are here to attract other people to donating.

    So as a conclusion: we should definitely implement a monetization system to our servers, but there are higher priorities now (setting everything up). When it's all set and we're up and running then is the time we should start working on monetization.

    Personally I would love some sort of player model changes for VIP since I would definitely purchase VIP.

    V.I.P Sounds like a good idea however as alkon and many others in this thread have said it should be balanced and not give donors too much of an unfair advantage, if any at all. It's to be expected of a community that wants to grow for it to have a donation system, as chicken said:

    I believe I have heard @Kieran has said that doesn't want special models because it makes the server downloads longer.

    I don't think adding like 3 models for each team would make it download too long

    I think that if you add colors and more special ranks to the server that would be pretty awesome , and make it so that VIP's can change the color of their name.
    maybe even add special ranks to people that have a certain amount of hours played on the server.
