Gateway Roleplay (GWR) costs $79 USD/month and $45 USD/year for the dedicated server and forum domain registration respectively.
Any and all donations to help keep our server going are appreciated!How are the donation funds used?
* If you'd like to make a one-time donation or prefer to donate monthly via PayPal, contact @jianmingyong via DM on either the forums or Discord for our PayPal information. *
* Including your forum and Discord usernames in the notes field of your donation will help to streamline the process. *
* Donations through both PayPal and Patreon will grant you special perks! *
How does donating via Patreon work?
- Nearly all donations are put towards our monthly server payments and year domain registration payment.
- If we happen to go over our goal in any given month, the funds will be set aside for the next month.
- We may also use donation funds to purchase server and software upgrades.
When will I receive my perks?
- Perks are given on a cumulative basis. This means that if you donate $15 USD once and do not donate again the next month, you'll maintain your perks.
- There are a few perks that are restricted to only those who donate monthly, but the majority are available forever as long as you donate once.
- Like any other Patreon, donating toward a higher tier will grant you the perks that come with the lower tiers as well.
Cool! But what are the perks of donating?
- If you included your forum/Discord usernames in your donation note, we'll be able to deliver your perks right away.
- Otherwise, submit a support ticket via our donation claims formand include a screenshot of your receipt or some other confirmation email. We'll be able to deliver your perks from there.
- If we do not deliver your perks within 24 hours of donating, feel free to submit a donation claim ticket!
- If you donate via Patreon and don't receive your perks by the time the next payment cycle comes around, we'll issue you a refund.
