Re: Holidays 2014 contest

There has to be a way to ban them from future updates. Lay the hammer down and disable content to them unless they contribute back. It's not fair to you guys for all the hard work you do for all of us. Seriously, I know a few servers out there that have certain content working and get donations. Ma...

Re: Holidays 2014 contest

One of them is selling items and they refer it as donations which isn't really in my opinion, i'm sure if SE wanted to, they could cause them some serious trouble. Do these "donation" servers even contribute at all? Not really, they are more interested in making money off our work than contributing...

Re: Holidays 2014 contest

Wow, I didn't think I'd win anything. I wasn't even trying I been slacking off lately. Didn't know github had those handy lil graphs till now.

Re: Holidays 2014 contest

Grats KJ! I knew you can doooo eettt! I don't care what they say about you. (kidding) I'm curious how many other servers contribute. Do developers jump on other servers and find things implemented that they currently do not have? I know its natural for most people to be selfish in things they imple...
