xCPPS, Penguin Elite, and OpenCP website’s are all down. OpenCP and Penguin Elite are hosted on the same host, which is apparently suspended for reasons which we do not know right now. (perhaps someone reported them to their host?)
xCPPS’ website is also down. It’s been having a lot of downtime recently. It’s being going on and offline frequently. Their client is also not working. OpenCP’s client is also not working.
Penguin Elite, however is online for those who downloaded the client before the website is down. Cooldude (owner of Penguin Elite) says that he will soon have an area where people can still download and register for Penguin Elite, even when the website is down.
Anyways, I’d like to take this downtime to ask everyone a question.
Some Club Penguin private servers are now going to allow “donations”, and when you donate to them, they will reward you (for your donation) by giving you extra benefits in the private server, like a custom item, or maybe a special rank. This is similar to what Runescape and World of Warcraft private servers do.
So for example, let’s say they open donations, and they say that if you donate $10 they will make your own custom item which only you will get, so you donate $10, and then you get your own item. Or the same thing could go for your own custom room, a lot of possibilities.
However I am curious, would you pay real money for extra benefits in a private server?
I know a lot of the time “it depends” on what the benefits are, but just in general, would you be willing to pay for extra benefits? Or would you never pay for extra benefits?
