Server Donations
Now I am not sure if this has been discussed. With modding and free use of server client files.

Has the EULA been adapted for server donations.

I know many games in this genre keep this a gray area. Never giving direct permission or actively stopping it.

I would be in the area of not allowing it. However I can see the reason why servers do so. Some to make side cash and others just to fund there servers.

I basically do not want admins spawning in loot boxes for a paying member of the server.

Or people spawning with more than there non-donator counterparts.

possibly have it so donations are allowed but with no advantage given to those who donate.

That has always been allowed for servers. ARK couldnt stop that in anycase However when they give gifts in return for donations that borders on selling a product within there game.

Bump. Would love an answer from a DEV on this if possible.

Monetize in any way that you want, we don't care at all.

Indeed. And furthermore, a reminder that you won't need to own ARK to run a dedicated server. The server files will be posted on Tuesday free for anonymous Steam package download :)

Host your own ARK's, run your own world as you like! ;)
