Recently, we've become aware of some rumours circulating surrounding how we select staff on this server, specifically around the idea of players donating for staff ranks. It's extremely disappointing that some players have felt the need to spread them, it saddens me that a minority wish to drag down a server that we have worked so hard to make as unique and exciting as possible.
To clarify this point, we have never, and will never select players based on whether they have donated or not. Case in point, I myself have never donated money to this server, in fact, many of the staff have not. Staff are chosen based on their ability and commitment, and not on how much money they try to throw at the server. To suggest so is, quite frankly, an insult.
While this server does rely on donations to help pay the bills, we also try our hardest to give back to those who don't, or can't, donate. We have donor rank giveaways, we have inclusive, non-discriminatory events where we seek to ensure everyone has an equal chance, we try to make the server fun for everyone, no matter who you are, where you come from, and whether you can donate. We treat everyone as fairly as possible, and that goes for staff, gym selections and application of the rules.
As a final fact, I just would like to leave you with this information. Of the ten top donors, NONE of them are staff, and indeed, one of them has been permanently banned. As far as the core functions and rules of the server are concerned, everyone gets a fair crack of the whip.
