Dear Esteemed EverQuest developers, We know your time on the clock is valuable at Darkpaw and we appreciate all you do for EverQuest. We all have bills to pay, kids college tuition to save up for. Living in California is super expensive too. What if there was some way to compensate you (devs) for the time you spend off the clock on improving EQ by adding quality of life issues and fixing bugs? Some of the best quality of life features have been created by EverQuest devs on their free time. One awesome EQ dev created the /useitem command during his lunchbreak. For that, many players such as myself, are grateful. Would you be open to receiving subscriber payments on Patreon from EverQuest players who would like to help out, in return for working on quality of life improvements and fixing bugs? Patreon subscribers could suggest QOL improvements on the Patreon forums, vote on them and then the EQ dev with the account could evaluate them, decide on one, then submit them to Darkpaw for final approval in the same way that current volunteer work by devs is approved. This would be a voluntary program. There is nothing illegal about this as Patreon income is taxable just as Darkpaw salaries are taxable. As a player and a whale, I'd gladly pay $50 a month on Patreon to see QOL improvements to EverQuest by devs in their spare time. Others may not be able to afford that. Patreon memberships could start at $5 per month and scale up. This is a win-win scenario. EverQuest is improved because QOL items and bugs are being fixed and Darkpaw doesn't have to spend a dime. EQ devs do not have to volunteer or be a part of it. Those that do, can earn extra money and bask in the glory of knowing they made EQ better and will have the undying respect and gratitude of the EQ community. Thanks in advance for your consideration on this matter.
