    I think that if you vote for ImDeity, you should get some more '/home'-s. maybe like four to five. It costs money to teleport to my town, and sometimes I don't have that money. You may think, "Well, voting gives you Dei, so shouldn't that be enough to teleport back?" However, say I use that money up on something at the mall and need to get back? or if I leave myself 20-some-odd Dei for teleportation, and then my taxes are taken out (which has happened tome before). I think this would be a useful feature.

    This is best suggestion for more "/home" teleports for non-donors i have seen, but i doubt it would change admin opinion to restrict us from having more /home teleports unless we donate.

    And 4-5 /homes is too much IMO. Having one "/home" per one vote would be more than enough for emergency purposes.

    I agree with the 1 home thing, 4-5 is a bit much, especially with daily voting. I just had another idea for /home : what if we could buy them? For say, 100 Dei?

    Maybe.. But I thought you wanted to save money by /homing instead of /t spawning, so why buy the privilege of /home for ten times as much?

    I have to agree with Barry actually. This is a pretty good idea if it's only one /home per vote.

    I think it should be every 10 votes, you get 1 more /home. Or something like that. Only for people who registered on the portal though. Or We could buy like 5 more /home for like 750 or something like that.

    we already had this already suggested, and I disagree with getting money and /home-s maybe you should be able to pick the perk you want for voting.
    2 /home-s a day or 200 dei.

    Legoap's idea is the best one I think so far. Choosing would add variety.

    I dislike the general idea of people having more /home's without donating, but as the server doesn't need to upgrade soon or has trouble with it's upkeep and the idea is generally beneficial for the server.

    More home's, more votes, more popularity, more people, more money eventually.

    The ability to buy home's however would prevent people from donating, as they can just buy more /home's rather then wanting to get rewarded for their contribution towards the server's costs. Getting money is an easy task...

    I think it would be a good side project that could worked on. Wouldn't be all too hard to add something like this to the server, and it would get more people to vote. It's like a roller coaster on minestatus right now. We go from 3rd place to 18th place and back to 8th place in a matter of hours. If more people were voting to get an extra /home, we might actually find a solid spot at the top of minestatus.

    I think that it is quite an inconvenience of having only 20 /home's for the entire duration of being on the server, which is one reason why I and many others may have donated, but I would think that the donations would remain high if voting only granted one /home every few votes or so. It would give the people who need them an extra /home when they really need it but it would not be enough to convince people that donating to the server isn't worth it. Honestly, I think it's a great idea.

    Maybe you could earn an extra /home by doing quests, perhaps? Only on a few important quests though.

    But there are more perks to donating than just that. And maybe this could be a privilege for playing for a long time, or a rank perk.

    I donated for VIP and I can tell you that unlimited /home's is one of the only perks I get, and probably the best perk apart from flying. Also, I don't think there is a class that this would fall under, but I do have an idea. When the tier 3 ranks are made, it can be one of the perks to receive 1 /home per week or something like that.

    I don't think it's possible to add /home 's as a reward for quests, that's something I would have to ask Deity, however you gave me the idea of making a quest where your goal is to vote, which would be helpfull too ;).

    There are more perks for donating then /home that's true, however for VIP, it's just /fly @ 40% of walking speed and the 12.000 dei you recieve.
    As far as it becoming a perk, I think that it's better to have it available for everyone who votes. Maybe it could be something as an extra perk for craftsmen, making them able to do jobs for money and then /home back. As traders and lords can be fairly stationary when making money (shops, auctions, noble payment)

    What if the /homes, when bought, would be sent to the town as revenue? That way it counterbalances the non-payment of the town spawn dei. 5 to 10 dei per /home would add up (especially for those who are to lazy to walk, aka me).

    I belive 1 /home per 10 or even per 20 votes would be fine

    No matter how you put it or implement it, the sale of /homes, unless sold for unreasonable amounts of Dei, would convince many people to not donate. That is just my opinion.

    1 home per 20 votes is not good.
    1 home per 5 votes is still bad.

    Its just not realistic at all. When a person plays seriously ( including new players that are motivated to stay on the server) you need to move around a lot. And you need a lot of /homes. A friend of mine who recently joined the server (who is a hardcore minecrafter) used up almost all of his /homes in 3 days. For some reason the messages were not prompting on his chat when he was using the command. Basically if you go mine and come back to a specific zone (not a town) you really need /homes.

    In order to maximize the amount of daily votes and also to maximize new the creation of new hardcore players 1 vote should = 1 /home (at least) maybe 2.
    That way, if you forgot to vote, and you really need to get to /home, you pop out browser vote and BAM you're home. Not only would people vote everyday in order to get the daily reward but also if they forgot to vote it would be a necessity

    The problem about "voting for 200 Dei" is that most of us don't care about 200 Dei.-> New players see no point to Dei prior to becoming "Town Members"
    -> Town Members see no point to extra Dei if they are not hardcore players and still have some Dei left (1 day voting means 20 days without voting in most towns to survive town taxes)
    -> Hardcore players can make so much more than 200 Dei easily, ergo the lack of necessity to vote apart from stopping that awful spam from the plugin.

    If a player would get a /home for every 5 votes, new players would never vote, and neither would anyone. When they would really need the /home, they would say: "Crap man, it takes so long to get these things" and would get frustrated, and might possibly log off instead of running for 20 minutes to get back to where they want to go.

    This is a perfect opportunity for Deity to abuse the Demand for /homes. Want your daily /home? Go vote.
    If it were a "after 5 daily votes you get 1 /home" it would not be a "Damn I need one right now" kind of thing. If you allow a 1 for 1 trade, new players and hardcore players (non-donators) will vote like crazy. Sure, they could theoretically never "need" to Donate to the server because they would have a daily /home, but so many people would join the server (due to massive increase in server's vote score) and many players would still donate for infinite /homes, since even while voting 1ce a day, you would still only get 1 a day. Want more? Donate.




    Idea for /Homes:

    -Player enters /home command- While Player's /homes left > 1
    Console Reply:
    "You just used the /home command. You have 35 out of 40 /homes left. Remember, every time you vote an additional /home will be added to your current amount of /homes."
    -Player enters /home command- While Player's /homes left = 1
    Console Reply:
    "You just used up your last /home. Remember to vote every day to claim your free daily /home"

    -Player enters /home command- While Player's /homes left = 0
    Console Reply:
    "You no longer have any more /homes available. Remember to vote every day to claim your free daily /home"



    Edit this is just a proposal, as I have no idea how hard this would be to code in.

    /home is a widley used feature by almost everyone on the server. Yes getting infinte /homes is a great perk of donating, but not everyone can donate and are then stuck with no /homes. I think there should be an easier way of getting /homes while not donating, and without getting rid of the donate feature or making it obsolete (aka making it better not to donate because it is cheaper/easier).

    It would be insane to quote Frenchy's entire post, but he is completely right. By having a daily /home for voting, the server would become huge in popularity. And with the new influx of players, donations would increase in numbers, even if the overall ratio goes down by a fraction of a percent. I completely agree with Frenchy.

    i think we should be able to buy a spawn like /t home so you could teleport directly to your home in town but after u bought it once it shound be free to use the only bad thing is it would probably be expensive
