In order to make NightLight sustainable as the site grows and to potentially reward me with some tea and scones for my efforts, NightLight has a £3 a month membership available on Ko-fi. This membership should be viewed as a donation with some rewards as a thank you rather than an actual product.
As we live in a world where server costs exist, I decided to make Supporter a way for me to provide things that directly increase my costs - such as storing matches for longer. I think this combined with some more advanced and cosmetic features strikes a reasonable balance between incentivising support without overly limiting the core experience.
What are the Supporter Perks?
- Increased Match History (60 ➔ 720 days)
- Advanced Filtering
Custom colour username & Supporter Badge
- Customisable Profile Header Character
- Supporter Role & Channel in the Discord & equivelent on the Forum
- Public Profile Bio (automatically taken from the forum. Example: Boop's Stats - NightLight)
- Higher batch upload limit (20 ➔ 50)
- 20 Custom Tags
How do I get the perks?
If you visit ko-fi.com/britishboop/tiers you’ll find the NightLight Supporter membership which you can join for £3 a month. After joining (provided your username or email address match that on your NightLight account) the perks will be granted automatically.
How do I Redeem the Discord Role?
- Make sure you have joined the NightLight Discord
- Visit nightlight.gg/account
- Click “Connect” next to Discord under the Connected Accounts section and link your account, you should then be given the role automatically.
What should I do if I entered the wrong name and used a different email on Ko-fi?
If you go to ko-fi.com/settings?tab=profile you should be able to correct your name. Once you’ve done that, send me a DM through Discord or the Forums and I’ll get your perks sorted out.
How do I set my Public Profile avatar and description?
For the sake of simplicity, these are automatically taken from the forum. As you sign into the forum with your NightLight account, any changes to your forum profile will be reflected on your NightLight Public Profile through the power of magic… or well, a few lines of code.
Here’s direct links to where you can configure each of these:
- Avatar: forum.nightlight.gg/my/preferences/account
- Bio: forum.nightlight.gg/my/preferences/profile (the “About Me” field)
A Thank You…
I just want to give a huge thank you to everyone who has checked out the site and an even bigger thank you to those of you who like it enough to become a Supporter. The fact I can work on a project I love and push things further without having to worry about the bill at the end of the month is something I’m incredibly grateful for. I really look forward to adding more to the site for both free users and supporters.
