Vote on the poll and decide whether diamond rank should be cheaper. Also i hope that even if this happens that the current diamond ranks will get partially refunded with skycade credit.

No! It would be unfair for us that already got it.
Dumb idea.

Yes!!! beCausE I alReAdy piad 4 Sumth1ng no One ElSe shoUlD geT a BettEr DeaL!!!

Being mature, yes $56 USD (Or 75 when not on sale) is too much for a rank that gives barely anything. They should lower the price or actually make it worth the money it costs.

I don't really think it should be lower. A lot of people do not realise the cost behind running a network. Hell, even a single server costs a lot. Factor in the price of devs, staff, hosting, maintenance etc, you need a source of income. No one is forced to buy diamond rank, but it is a great way to support the server. Without the likes of ranks, cosmetics etc, the server would struggle to financially run.

There is never any pressure to buy ranks of any form, and no one should ever feel that they have to. It is understandable that not everyone can afford them. However there are frequent sales on, with Diamond rank often at 30% off. Add on the running jack code for 10%, you get a really good deal. There are players that also do giveaways for ranks. You can also buy gold rank and at later sales use the discounts to upgrade to Diamond if you so wish.

As others have already stated, it would be massively unfair to change the price of the rank at this point seeing as so many already have the rank, most paying full price for it.

This is honestly a terrible response. Going back to my previous point, those who have diamond rank if they, like you say, enjoy it, then they should want to share that with everyone else. No matter if the price drops, I know that every decent person I know would have something they love go worthless if it meant more people could experience it. Also, do you not realize how much of Skycade's """"""poorness"""""" comes from the server's own choices? Maybe it should keep its playerbase and not ban them over stupid things, maybe it should create servers that aren't garbage, and maybe then they'll have enough people wanting to support the server that they won't be """"""poor"""""" anymore.
The argument isn't that we should make it free. Everyone knows that running a server costs money. 75 USD for a rank that gives practically nothing though? Is that really what you want the face of your server to be? Just have it run off donations for (naught word because alex might ban me!!!!)'s sake. The argument is to lower the price. That's it. The server is still getting money to run, it's just not practically scamming its playerbase with a terrible and overpriced rank anymore.
Another point you try to make is your sales codes. Ok, so now instead of 75 dollars I get-let's be generous and say 50% off!!!!!!!!!!- a 37.5 USD rank with the same shitty features that's, at most, only worth 10 bucks for the msgtoggle, no afk kick, and the particles that don't even work on half the servers. Is that really fair? A 37.5 USD rank for at most 10 USD of practical commands and a couple other bells and whistles that no one uses 90% of the time? In my opinion, absolutely not. I will never spend 37.5 USD for something that affects only 4/6 of the servers usually, and that most of the stuff that does work that it claims to have is useless anyways.
Should the rank's price be lowered? Absolutely, yes. People know they don't '''''have'''''' to buy the rank, but if they want to support the server and get a few perms, it's still overpriced. Personally, I think the real scam is the closeness in price it is to Gold rank. Yes, it's about 10 USD more on sale, but it gives you that blue [email protected]!! [email protected]!!!! It's good buisiness practice, but scummy. I'd suggest lowering the diamond rank price and creating a more fun server rather than trying to create things that no one enjoys with Skycade's apparently oh-so-limited budget.

Mate you made a discussion thread. People are going to debate. She voiced her opinion and I'm explaining to her how it's flawed with context. Nothing wrong with her, her viewpoint is just coming from an uninformed or naive angle.

Debates won't get people mad if they come at it from an objective viewpoint with their mind being able to be changed. If they come in here guns blazing with an unshakable mindset of course they're gonna be mad if someone questions and challenges them, but I came in here with my own opinions with a little more background and context and I'm talking with them about their own opinions. If they don't want to respond, or can't respond without getting demoted (Sorry nursey about that!!!) then that's their own prerogative.

It's a bit exaggerated saying that "diamond rank gives nothing" It gives disguises, perks, and a nice shiny name tag and chat. Also people normally don't ghost you as much if you have something that makes you noticeable in chat (based on a true story)

Already covered all that. Disguises only work on a few servers, and the only popular one (afaik) being SMP, and a name tag you can buy for less than 5 bucks. Who cares if you get ghosted? Just don't talk to them. Only talking to someone because they like your rank is a terrible way to interact with people.

If you don't want to be ghosted, buy a nametag.

Even if ranks are so expensive just buy them when they are on sale Because of last years Christmas sale I had bought my diamond rank for about $22-$24 USD

I have a nametag color, and a suffix. I talk to people like Banthony4 and ILikeDogz and i still get ghosted :/ I know i don't have to buy diamond rank, but even buying iron rank is a little pricey considering the benefits.

Welp, thats sad.
As you get more known people will see your messages.
If someone like @AstroStqr✧ talks in chat it will be read by more people then a player saying "give cash" who joined 10 mins ago.

Mate it really just seems like you're salty that you can't get a rank. Go out and mow some lawns.
