    Ah yeah, I guess they could rig up something for server side cosmetics. In a game with no sv_pure.

    Honestly that's a rather solid chunk of dev time which could be used for game improvements.

    Don't lie paradox you just want to get rid of that title you have. I don't know why though, it's a great title and a super unique one at that. Though I would love the title "CAPTAIN ASSHOLE", once someone said it I became rather fond of it.

    If it promotes more donations, then it might be a good thing. More advertising then. More advertising means more players, more players means more possible donators/devs, more devs means better updates, more donators means more ads.

    titles are overrated ...

    also i approve of @Lazybum being mod - even tho my approval probably doesnt matter anything to anyone anyway.

    Didn't you get to see that weird title for hitting 10k posts? Something like "gotta insert something witty here"?

    A forum title of "Patreon Supporter" or somesuch for the 1$ tier (or 5$ or even more I dunno) is a few minutes of work and a monthly iphone reminder to make sure the list is up to date. Super easy to do and with minimal effort.

    Yes, it's probably a damn good idea to add forum titles, because then there's a clear presence on the forum of the fact that players are paying for the servers, and that you could be too.

    Yarg, I wanted to check out code stuff now that we've got our shiny fast git LFS set up; I do think it will take me an hour one-time, plus 5 minutes every week and then I'll get yelled at for the two being inconsistent at some point in the future. But still, a good idea to do.

    So, aside from fixing bugs, adding features, maintaining the website and setting up this patreon title, you need me to check all the forum threads profusely? Come on, be patient, I'm a volunteer.
