Kawata runs 100% on donations and from our pockets.
We aim to keep Kawata 100% free, without any ads, or any silly business model. However, servers and everything that goes with it has a cost. While we can run Kawata on low-end hardware for now, our community is growing and better hardware might be necessary to ensure Kawata runs smoothly for everyone. That's why we ask you for help :)
We are still students.
Most of the Kawata staff do not have a day job. This means that we get most of our income as students from doing small jobs as "freelancers" every so often, or, you know, allowance.
We do not have ads. And never will.
You may have adblock enabled and have not noticed, but we don't have ads anywhere on our website. We believe ads are bad, as they can be very annoying to you and that you would rather spend a few bucks to help us rather than watch annoying ads all the time.
We love picking random icons from our icon library.
So what can you do?
Well, you can give us money.
Here's what you get:
Just like in osu!, you get a shiny yellow username in the in-game chat to show everyone you're a really cool dude who has supported Kawata!
Again, just like in osu!, you will get a donor badge on your profile, to show everyone you're supporting us.
You'll get exclusive access to the "#donators" text and voice channels, you'll be able to change your discord nickname and you'll get a custom role with custom username colour!
Think about spicing your profile up with some eggplants? Got you covered! Having donor privileges, you get to be able to change your profile background.
Username and country changes
Don't like your username? If you are a donor, you can request an username change. You can also change your country to whatever!
