Small servers are often the most beloved communities and should have the ability to enjoy Server Boost benefits within a more reasonable business model.
I am aware that there will be more Nitro subscribers with the Server Boosting feature added, but that is not the main draw to the subscription, nor should it be. While I enjoy the concept of this benefit being added to Nitro, Boosts given should be permanent, though I understand that is not as good for business as the current model. However, consideration towards the customer is currently lacking and it's safe to assume that additional options for Server Boosting would be an improvement for both business and the customer as more individuals would be inclined to make payments who would not at all with the current model. Unfortunately, that would create a less simple method, but I wish to remain realistic with my suggestions as it would be foolish to expect a shift where Boosting benefits within the current framework would become entirely permanent.
Please consider adding a once a month or annual payment of a carefully calculated sum to be paid by the administrator, a more lengthily process to achieve permanent levels, or a one-time payment option for permanent server boost benefits/levels.
I would gladly support Discord and my server if Boosting was more reasonable for the size and type of server I operate. For example, there are several professional and hobbyist artists that enjoy sharing their work in my server and the increased upload file size would be a likable feature in addition to knowing we are supporting the platform in use.
It's important to also express concern toward servers losing their vanity URLs and having them made available to all, should their level decrease. This implementation is problematic and should be reconsidered.
Generally speaking, Server Boosting is an impolite cash grab business model that intentionally inclines administrators to repeatedly ask their members to contribute. This will not be enjoyable for servers of any size. Additional payment options would relieve this nuisance.
Thank you for reading.
