We thought that town upkeep and rent were deducted every Minecraft day, but they’re deducted every calendar day. Oops.
I’m about to update all web site information to reflect reality.
Also, that means we’re only charging $10 per calendar day for town upkeep when we thought we were charging $720. Since you can easily get $2000/day from voting alone, we will probably need to increase the cost of town upkeep. We will do this gradually and will make an announcement first.
