I wanted to donate to get the halloween one, but it said I had to be legend rank, which is something like $50,- so I stopped there. Now I feel really sad I didn't buy the halloween rank :/

i would've gotten one but not a fan of grey/white for donor status (imo the point is to stand out and the text/border colours for 2/3 were kinda flat). kinda surprised there wasn't an orange and black one

There was an orange and green one I wanted to get, but when I saw it required legend rank I just clicked away

I'd also like to apologize for the pricey donation ranks for holiday ranks. Our permission groups would have led me to make several small groups with different title ranks just for one colored rank. By introducing a new rank for people to be interested in, I wanted to make sure folks still had access to all their titles and prior permissions. The fact that they are temporary, also led to the decision. If they were more permanent ranks, they would have gone the route of mystic/blessed/merchant where they cost less, and those above the legend ranks could pay $5 to just keep the title colors (this causes us to make about 6 groups of permissions in total).

It was a lot less confusing in the backend. But in the future, staff will make sure to introduce less costly donation ranks.
