Add a page where we can view the donation items, including coin costs, to the website.

I think sitting and drooling over some pixel crack during my lunch would cause me to donate.

I'm not saying this wouldn't be a lot of work. I know it would be, but think of it as showing off the custom assets you all have worked so hard to create for the server. The server's website is usually the first impression, and determines whether that player logs in at all. It did for me. Thankfully this server has a very professional looking site.

Yea I guess I could do that. Would be a lot of work though so I'll start working on it over time. I'm also open to suggestions for donation items people would like to see that are essentially vanity items and not pay to win. Have also thought about selling merchandise such as t-shirts and hats but not sure anyone would be interested. I have a shirt and a mouse pad with the shard's logo on it.

I would buy some RL swag if the price was right.

Suggestion for a donation item:
For a high level donation, you could make a legends card with their character and add it to the drop table. I found my first one today, and it was really really cool. Grinding Gear Games did something similar in Path of Exile. If you give $1000 you get to create a divination card in the game. Without getting in to the details it's something that gets added to the loot table of a specific monster or area and has a chance to drop.

I'm not suggesting a $1k donation level or anything, but I think the donation level should resemble the amount of work that goes in to the item being that it is custom. It would be really cool to have your character immortalized in the drop table of the server forever.

My only concern about something like that would be giving off the impression of a money grab or favoritism towards folks who donate. I try to keep the donation thing a low key, only if you want to kind of thing. The only reason it's even there is that I know people genuinely want to help out and often that's the only way they can. I guess from my perspective it would feel like I'm asking for money and I'm not.Hope that makes sense.

Yeah, I think showing the donation items on the website will really help to the cause.
Think about it as you buy for something in the store, you pay, but you don't know what you payed for unless you enter in the game.
Many people into rare stuff/unique items, so something like this showing up on the website can make or break a deal for them.

About the T-Shirts/Hats/Pads or whatever, sure, if it's cool enough people will buy, apparel merchandise is always good.
