The Crown Transparency Reports


Financial Report for Month 1 (Feb 21 - Mar 21)

Terms:

We - The Crown.
Our - Belonging to The Crown.

Overview:

We are a small Minecraft server that has been running for one month. In February, we generated a net loss of -£26.07, and in March, we generated a net profit of approx. £21.63. While we have generated some income through our online store, it has not been enough to cover the cost of hosting and domain expenses.

Income:

In February, we did not generate any income. In March, we earned approx. £48 through our online store. This income was generated through the sale of in-game ranks/extras. Please keep in mind that our store hosting provider (Tebex Ltd) takes a percentage of the income that we earn.

Expenses:

In February, we incurred expenses of £26.07. This included the cost of the domain name (thecrownmc.com - £11.99) and the Minecraft Hosting (£14.08). In March, we incurred expenses of £26.37. This included the cost of the store hosting (£12.49) and the Minecraft hosting (£13.88).

Net Loss:

Due to the expenses being greater than the income, we incurred a net loss of -£4.44 over the whole month.

Recommendations:

To reduce expenses, we may consider switching to a cheaper hosting provider or opting for a lower-tier hosting plan. Additionally, we may want to focus on marketing the server to attract more players and increase revenue. Offering special promotions or discounts for new players or donors could help increase the number of purchases and donations. Finally, we may want to explore alternative revenue streams, such as sponsored content or partnerships with other Minecraft servers or related businesses.

Staff Report for Month 1 (Feb 21 - Mar 21)


It has been an exciting month since the server's launch, and we're happy to report that we have a dedicated team of staff members who are passionate about providing the best Minecraft experience for our players.

Our staff team currently consists of one owner, ItsKieranuwu, and two developers, HexVibez and Akerbay. Each of them has been working tirelessly to improve the server and ensure that players have an enjoyable time while playing.

We would also like to take a moment to acknowledge the recent departure of two admins, SlyKat294 and Death232456. While it's always unfortunate to see staff members leave, we respect their decision to step down and wish them the best of luck in their future endeavours.

The decision to remove their permissions to enter creative or use commands that allow items to be spawned in was made by the owner after numerous breaches of trust were identified. The safety and fairness of our players are our top priorities, and we take any breaches of trust very seriously.

Moving forward, we will continue to monitor the server and ensure that our staff team is providing the best possible experience for our players. We are always open to feedback and suggestions, so if you have any thoughts or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to us.
