Hello, Pixelbuiltians. I'm writing this post to inform you on the server and it's future. Last month, my server profits were stolen from me which caused the server's host to go down due to lack of funds to keep it online. To prevent the problem from happening again, I redirected PayPal payments to go to my PayPal instead of where they were going. Doing this, though, has made it to where all of the automatic subscription payments don't get sent to me. I honestly don't know where they get sent to.
So, anyway, unless new VIP subscriptions are made (those who have it now can just cancel and renew if they like) or if people start purchasing stuff from the shop, Pixelbuilt'sfuture is on thin ice. The server is not worth me putting money out-of-pocket to keep alive.
What I'll probably end up doing is deleting the current VIP in the store to try to avoid money being charged and sent to someone else who hasn't worked for it and recreating it, with more features and probably cheaper (I certainly won't increase the price).
Pixelbuilt's future depends on you. Some can't afford donations, I understand that. I never had a problem with players who don't donate. I'm from a very poor family myself, I know how it goes. I don't expect to make enough money from the server to pay my bills. I've never cared about that. The server just needs to make enough money to pay for itself ($26.91 every month) or else I'll close it. You guys can't afford donations and I can't afford to pay for the whole thing every month.
Final note, if you have VIP right now, you're going to want to cancel it.
