    With cubecraft hitting 30k players and 40k Twitter followers a giveaway was announced. However, this way only made available for non-donors. This seems a bit unfair as a fair amountof the followers were probably donors as well as the players online. The donors are also the ones who are keeping the server up and running. So it seems a bit unfair that their was no giveaway for us.

    Suggestion: Giveaway between 1-5 rank up to obbsidian for each rank. This makes everyone happy including people who were excluded from this.

    (Btw I'm not a butt hurt 10 year old I just feel that donors are being excluded from the fun)

    Agree.
    I find that its a bit unfair that person who would never pay for a rank get a rank thats even higher than the most of the donors.

    As an Emerald ranker myself I must say I do agree with you, however;

    1) A giveaway is announced, asking for more is a bit rude in my opinion.
    2) Ranks are more useful to Stones than rank-upgrades are to donators.
    3) @Joe Henry announced that there could be manually chosen winners for merchandise and rank upgrades.

    1.I think its not, its unfair that donors (the persons who help to maintain the server) get less than person who probably never though about helping the server.
    2. I dont think so, the most stone rankers dont even want to pay, and then they get it for free? it would be ok if its just iron or even lapiz rank (maybe even gold), but if they get a rank that is worth more than 100 pounds, i think its going too far. Especially if its only for stone rankers (it would be awesome that the codes could be used for ranks AND rank-up, then it would be fair).

    I've been a Stone ranker (long, long time ago) and I've paid like 142 euros in total. It's not paying, it's donating. You don't HAVE to pay.

    That's something I agree with.

    I'll ask if there could be a "Rank-Up Giveaway" in the future.
