Permanent (non expiring) accounts
« on: March 10, 2015, 07:25:23 pm »

Hi,

I am pondering about giving out the privilege (well, or benefit) to have accounts not expire.

It has happened in the past, and there are a few accounts that do not expire.

One more famous example is the "Baluski" account, though there are others who did a lot for the site and were granted that boon.

I'd say I put an option for donation points in, to buy that privilege.

One "downside" is that names would be locked "forever", as I won't manually delete those accounts.
One "upside" is for people who leave this site that their accounts would be there - with all houses etc. attached. Also people who live there can continue to live there.

Opinions are welcome  :twisted:

I see some useful benefits for members- no objections.

Although names would be locked, first come first serve.  :twisted:

How big a sum were you thinking perhaps?

Needless to say I'm cool with this.

It would be nice to be able to lock my main names.

I'm good for the lock-down. Account sellers are sure to love this too, if they're willing to make the investment of keeping any canon character names held-down for good.

Sounds good to have I am for it as I can 'keep' my forest ranks

I suggest it needs to be reasonable price in donation points, however, make sure it is something that isn't easily gotten.

Sounds like a positive improvement. All for this.

I'd suggest a price around 2500 DP not outrageously expensive but not super cheap that anyone can get it. Though I'd like to hear what others think and suggest.

2000-2500 might not be so bad. Takes work, though not impossible after you get going from the hard early kills. Plus you can always donate too, get yourself up there to the sum and help the server while at it.

What about the people who base all their characters stuff on rp and run on like an Academy student? It'd be pretty hard to get the 2500 dp without someone loaning it to you

If somebody's content being an acad, where's the issue in simply recreating the acc if it gets nuked by auto-delete at some point?
