    Currently to get anymore yells than the 5 from voting, players only have the option to donate $250 for unlimited yells.

    My suggestion is to have it where when a donator uses ::claimvotes, it could give them some amount of extra yells based on their donator rank.

    These numbers are just to serve as an example:
    $0 status - 5 yells from claiming votes.
    $10 status - 10 yells from claiming votes.
    $50 status - 20 yells from claiming votes.
    $250 status - unlimited yells just as it currently is.

    I know for me personally, the main thing I would want to donate for is more yells, however $250 is way more than I would ever consider donating, solely for extra yells. So for me, I would be convinced to donate at a lower tier if it meant I got additional yells. I'm sure there are tons of other players like me.

    Well as a player who spends a lot of time in-game, I disagree; 5 yells feels extremely limited and there is definitely room for some amount of middle ground. I don't know what that amount would be.

    "These numbers are just to serve as an example" - It would be up to owners/staff to decide on the exact numbers. I just listed these numbers for illustration.

    even saving them up won't work since one needs to yell for advertisements.
    Use your brain if you have one.

    I'd rather see yells removed completely.
    limited to staff only.

    that will lead to 0 advertisements of marketing/starting of mini-games.
    The server will just fall apart.

    Maybe people should be a little more optimistic, and not derail threads just to make a meme-joke :fp2:

    This just proves that someone who already has unlimited yells on their main can hoard yells on an alt by not using them, because they have no need to use them.

    The bottom line is that saving yells requires you to not use them.

    The goal of this suggestion is to give donators at tiers below $250 the ability to use a few extra yells each day. "Don't use your yells" is not a solution to "We want to use more yells.".

    just get $250 donation status.
    It's not hard.
    you can't buy it with real life money, use in-game.

    This is a suggestion that if they added some middle tiers, more people might be willing to donate that otherwise wouldn't. I'm one of them.

    "Just get the $250 donation status" is not a solution to "I want a few more yells but I don't want to pay $250 for unlimited yells."

    It likely won't happen tho because yells plague the game as is.
