... if it was somewhat reasonably priced and obtainable.
I have a discord for a community that I really care about. We have been gaming together for several years and have formed REAL LIFE friendships from it even. The thought of being able to make the discord fancy for my members who have all been great brings me joy.
BUT right now, I feel that it is unobtainable. Right now, we have 5 people (including myself) boosting our server w/ TWO boosts. Even that is not enough to get us to level 2. So in order to keep the server at level two, not only do I have to depend on members to constantly shell out money that they may (or may not) have every month. But I also would have to shell out 30+ dollars in order to keep it there.
If I had to pay $30 for all the premium features myself I would. But this is WITH help. How reliable is that? And then for level 3 you're talking $78 PER MONTH w/ 5 boosters already on the server. If I had to completely pay for it myself, it would be $150 per month!!! . That is SUPER high. I get that this system is meant for these mega servers with a ton of people. But what about smaller groups who still take their communities seriously?
In a sense, more money would be made if there was a sort of.... "Premium Discord" service to buy. I'm sure there are plenty of smaller servers out there who would easily shell out a reasonable amount of money per month for a premium level discord with perks.
