Note: New donations are suspended. Existing donors retain their perks, but no new donors are being accepted.
Donors get most of the powers of mods, without the hassle of actually having to actually be a mod (which is not much fun at all – just try asking one!)
Already know what you’re doing? Scroll to the bottom of the page, enter your username and click on the ‘Subscribe’ button. Paypal will sort out the rest! However, please be warned: Donating does not stop you from being banned. If you’re already banned, we’ll happily say thank you for the donation, but you won’t be unbanned. If you break a rule while you’re a donor, you’ll be banned. You will not get a refund, or have your ban length shortened. Please keep in mind that you are not buying anything – you are just donating.
I should warn you – if getting banned is something that worries you, we probably don’t want you on the server anyway. There’s plenty of PVP servers where you can go and annoy people. We do our best to make sure EVERYONE has fun on mcau. Not just people who enjoy annoying other people.
Anyway, after that – here’s what you get as a Donor:
- The Honeybadger
You can visit the Honeybadger’s lair and he will give you a random amount of experience once a day. This lets you enchant tools and weapons. Don’t know where it lives? /warp HoneyBadger
- More Homes and Regions
You can have more homes and regions. Check mcau.org/ranks for more info on homes.
- Your own Chat Channel
To join it you do /ch d
To leave Global chat you do /ch leave g
And of course you can leave d and join g.
You can also use colour formatting in /msg
- Compass Teleporting
Hold a compass, click on something a long way away, and you’ll be teleported there!
Once every week you get, for free, 1 Diamond Pickaxe, 1 Diamond Axe, and 1 Diamond Shovel. You also get 10 free eggs. These are purely there as a thank-you gift. You can use them to throw at other players – or to spawn chickens, or make cake. Whatever you want.
Yep. No damage taken whilst you have hunger points. You can turn this on and off, but make sure to carry food!
- /al help
Add light sources wherever you like! It costs 4 glowstone dust to create a light source. Run /al on, then left click the blocks you wish to illuminate whilst holding the dust. Right-click to remove the light. Run /al off when you’re done
This is just like /tpa. However, it asks the person to teleport to you instead.
This automatically denies people’s requests that are trying to teleport to you. If you’re working away on something secret, and you don’t want to be disturbed with people /tpa’ing you, you can turn this on to block their requests.
Lets you change your name! use /nick off to turn it off.
Lets you put a block on your head. You have to be holding it though!
Lets you set your own personal warp, which you can access via /dwarp tp <username>
Try it out to see the cool effects you can apply to some creatures!
Changes the colour of your name above your head and in the tab list (Note: This doesn’t change the colour of your name in chat!)
- /pp <list | effect>
Produces particles around your player!
That’s what you get as a bonus in-game. You also get a nice Green [#] rank next to your name, and your name in also in Green. Nifty! Of course the important question is – how much does it cost?
If you donate a fixed amount, I’ll simply apply donor status to your account until then. Even if you don’t want it! If you set up a subscription, your $5 comes automatically, and you get to keep your green name forever.
There are other donation ranks. They don’t GET you anything, but if you’re feeling unusually generous, feel free to select them. We don’t mind!
