    This was an idea that was done previously but due to the massive amounts of donations and that it was done all manually it was unfortunately removed because of the hassle.
    This can be changed with an item donation bot where everything is automated.
    A simple story of how you would donate:
    • Go to the VIP/Donate page on the store (https://degree-gaming.com/vip.php)
    • Click on a button that says "Donate with Keys"
    • Make an offer to the bot with say, 6 keys for 30 days or 1 key for 3 days (like a trial)
    • Once an offer has been sent and the bot is able to accept the donation, your details will be added to the donations database automatically for 30 days.
    • If your profile allows it, we can have the bot send you a reminder when your VIP expires within 24 hours.
    This is just at the idea stage but I would like some feedback from the clan members and the general audience of those who play on the servers to see what they think. Not everyone can afford $10, but they can afford to make the equivalent in keys, etc, so is a good idea to include those in on having some cool server perks.

    Love the idea. Many people (based on my experience) would prefer to pay via keys/in game currency. Additionally, not everyone has access/would like to pay via paypal/online currency in USD etc, which disallows them to purchase VIP. Overall, I'm all for this!
