PSA: Server owners aren’t your enemy (self.Minecraft)
149 ups - 88 downs = 61 votes
Greedy people are our enemy.
There are greedy snake oil salesmen everywhere. There are people who rip off content in app stores, who trick website visitors into clicking ads.
Calling every server owner who tries to make money to cover their costs (hosting, development, time investment) a pay2win schemer is not only wrong, it’s depressing.
Wherever there is money, there will be bad apples.
Mojang wants to put an end to money making. It’s a large broad stroke which will definitely solve their issues.
But have you seen Google or Apple removing paid apps from their app stores? Have you seen advertisers close down because sometimes someone tries to push through an ad with sound or popups?
Money fuels the internet and money is a sign of a healthy ecosystem.
Just because there are people who want to suck everyone dry doesn’t mean majority of server owners are evil.
Whatever Mojang decides to do, please remember that not every server owner is a scam artist.
^(Edit: The number of downvotes on this post makes me think some people believe server owners are the enemy. Why? Can you explain in the comments below instead of hitting that down arrow?)
