No, Unless I read it wrong. They are just saying that you can now legally monetise your server.

Yeah from what i can see it looks like its now legal to get donations although they say no perks but for those of us who already donated i don't think they can have our perks removed since we got them before this rule was made so its hard to see what they are saying

I agree with coal on that. Donators get perks but we don't treat other players any differently just because they haven't donated. I as a donator like my perks but I didn't donate just to get them I donated because I love Oasis and wanted to help out.

What Mojang is saying is that they are legally allowing server owners to use donations as a means to help support and offset the monthly server costs. This is a good thing not only for our community, but for the rest of the Minecraft community. It means we aren't going to be sued or forced offline by Mojang anytime soon for breaking the terms of their EULA.

You guys don't have to worry about this anymore. :)

EDIT: For clarification:

Mojang wrote:You are allowed to accept donations from players. You can thank them publicly or in-game, but can’t give preferential treatment for donating. You are not allowed to restrict gameplay features in an attempt to make money.
By preferential treatment they mean things such as: ban immunity, staff ranks and commands including /kick, /ban, /pardon, /stop, /op, /deop, /whitelist, etc.

The "restrict gameplay features" section is slightly harder to explain, but we do our best to ensure that all players (donors or non-donors) are able to enjoy Minecraft Multiplayer to the best of their abilities, and that you will never be forced to pay us anything in order to play the game as it was intended to be played.

I want to add to this, I personally never donated and I still had a great experience on Oasis without all the fancy perks any donation would get you. (This all referring to before I got staff)

So.... No more perks for future donations? Is that right? It's cool, I still plan to donate more in the future just because I love Oasis.

To clarify for you, Robbie, I dont think that getting perks for donating is recieving preferential treatment over any player. If anything it is a token of gratitude. I've seen people who have donated be banned and if anything its seen as worse than when some guest gets banned. The current system we have now seems very fair. I think theres something of a difference between our current system and and what Mojang is trying to prevent from happening.

Im no lawyer tho, so correct me if Im wrong...

Everyone on Oasis can keep their perks, because the perks are reflected in ranks that are obtainable without donation: more here.

Basically, because $50 donors are basically Veterans, and Veteran is obtainable without donating, its ok.

We are keeping the things you get for donating to the server nothing will change. Fear not younglings. For the perks will be there.
