    So as all of you may know Sk has announce that he is no longer going to be paying for the server that is running the modded Minecraft parts. I have also announced that I would be the one paying for it ATM. That was a little hasty. The server will cost quite a bit of money, as in $79 / Month. Putting that into perspective I work 2 jobs(Totaling 40 hours) go to school full time and try to manage this server as best as I can; but I pay my own insurance, My current computer is on it's last life, I am still paying off my car and adding that server fee on would mean I would make almost nothing. I have been paying Sk $15 / month for the past year to help with server costs. I'm going to start a patreon to help mitigate that cost of the server, which will have BETTER specs than what it currently has. I am setting a goal of >$50 month I know that is a lot but to keep these serves running we need every ones help. I would Like to know what you would pledge if it was set up and if you would like to help in other ways. I just didn't want this to be the end of the modded Skcraft community.It is set up now https://www.patreon.com/Skcraft

    I haven't been on skcraft in like a year, I might be able to donate 5$ ~ 10$ a month though (I'm a highschool student with a 10hr/week job)

    I'm currently contributing to SK's Patreon. Just let me know the new one and I will switch over my contribution.

    He mentioned he would setup a Patreon account. I don't believe it's setup yet.

    So believe it or not I actually make $14 dollars an hour(IKR). I could easily do 5-10 dollars a month, but my only problem is Skcraft hasn't really been maintained like it used to be in the past. I most likely will help out if this whole thing gets going (which for the most part it has) but will we see any changes to the maintenance done. I was building something super cool and a part of the looks was the draconic evolution wires. I posted about them as a bug and got 21 views and not a single reply. And like I said I would love to donate but what's the point if nothings gonna get fixed

    I may be able to pay some at a later date, however I agree with Ronen that things have not been maintained properly. I as well as others have offered to help out with maintaining the server, whether that be modpack team or moderation or both and have either been shut down without good reason or completely ignored. My offer to help out in any way still stands, I have been around long enough that I hope it is taken seriously.

    Hi thank you for your offer but we handle the server with a hosting company and we get a decent deal thank you though.
