Behind the scenes
We are often asked why the server cost so much money to run so I thought it might be a good idea to explain how a Minecraft server works.
Sure, you could get an old PC, install the server on it and connect it to your internet connection but that would be a very slow server, create a high electricity bill and eat up your internet speed. Instead its a much better idea to have a server, which is basically a big and powerful computer, place it in a dedicated room with lots of other servers and connected to a very fast internet connection which is exactly what Kaizen Worlds did.
The people that make this server possible!
A server cost hundreds of dollars a year to run so without people donating we simply don’t have a server!
The donor hall of fame was not that easy to find in the old Spawn Castle so I have given it a more prominent place now in one of the town houses.
So, with this post I would like to thank MattTheDolphin, SFaulken, Samantha CS, The Troy, Reeco9, awsmstevie, x and b grolleman and last but not least, hotdish101.
Once 1.8 bukkit is out we are planning to organize a donor fun run. The hosting company we are with gives 2 months free hosting if you pay annually and that is a saving worth going for!
Right now we have 3 packages in our shop.
From the kindness of your heart, this is a 10 USD minimum but you can pay more, there is no reward other than your head in the donor hall of fame. This package was created on request for people who want to stay strict survival.
a 10 USD home decoration package which gets you your own head, 2 banners looking as close as possible to the flag of a country of your choosing, 50 flowers of your choice, 10 flower pots, 1 jukebox, 1 armor stand, 5 paintings and the complete set of music discs!
A 5 USD head on a stick, any head you want. Hang your lover on your wall or put the person you hate the most on a stick.
Donations, the blood of the server
We are a server by users for users. Most of us come from servers we poured our heart and soul into only to see it closed down. Kaizen Worlds intends to be free of that, as such I do my very best to keep expenses low so we can run the server off donations.
When we all share the cost we can play for next to nothing. If you enjoy the server please consider donating, every dollar helps and will be invested 100% into the server.
So far the top donators are SFaulken, MattTheDolphin from the G2 Project, Samantha, The_Troy and the Grolleman father and son team!
If you are unable to donate please invest some time in promoting the server. Tell your friends and family, share one of the blog posts or screenshots on other social media such as Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, Google Plus or whatever network you are on. The more people the more fun!
