Okay, I am having a problem with donation benefits. I've had my server up on a host and need to have some people donate. They said that they would donate if I added some donation benefits. So far I've set up the system here: http://www.jakecraft.webs.com/
1 person donated and the other said that they were completely unfair... So I was wondering what you guys would say is fair? Is the one I have good? Should I change it? Here is my server if you want to know what kind it is and everything...
Diamonds do present an unfair advantage to that player, since that gives them the ability to have the best armor and weapons... so other users would have a hard time in defending against such a player.
You should stick to things that wouldn't affect gameplay, in terms of PvP... maybe give them a full stack of every color of wool, that is pretty benign.
A lot of people use multiverse to allow donators access to a creative world. I would avoid diamond give aways. You want BENEFITS not ADVANTAGES. Advantages cause an unfair shift in gameplay, slowly ruin servers, and deter new members. Maybe add some fun plugins for donators only; such as using gates and elevators.
