Art Fight is supported by users like you!

Monthly Contributions

Monthly Contributions are temporarily unavailable, and will return at a later date.

One-time Contribution

Your contribution will directly support running Art Fight! Funds go towards server and image hosting, site assets, and other expenses directly related to Art Fight and its development.

There are several tiers of rewards for helping support the site- please read the FAQ below for a thorough explanation on how they work.

2024 Art Fight Tiers

These are our projected tiers for 2024. These numbers are not meant to be set in stone, but rather a rough estimate that can better communicate our future goals for the site.

The tiers are representative of paid work; we still have devs who wish to remain volunteers and are free to work on features they'd like to implement, so some features may be added or completed outside of the tiers.

The contribution bar is back. We have 3 goals for 2024, plus extra stretch tiers. If a tier is reached, certain features and goals can be achieved, which will be outlined below.

Contribution FAQ

Rewards on are automatic! Your payment will appear in your Contribution History a few minutes after it's completed, at which time you will receive any site-based rewards you have earned. Discord-based rewards are manually distributed, however.

Please contact an Admin if you haven't received your site rewards after 4 hours from the time of your payment, or after 48 hours for Discord rewards.
Your contribution will be active for one year from the date you made the payment. For example, if you make a $25 contribution, you will have the 'Premium' reward tier for one year.
Name changes earned from supporting the site remain on your account until you choose to use them.

Yes. Any contributions made within a year from the current date will become part of your 'active contribution total', which determines your current reward tier.

For example: if you pay $5 on February 1st, and $10 more on March 1st, you will have an active contribution total of $15 which puts you at the Supporter+ tier. You would remain at Supporter+ until February 1st the following year, as your active contribution total would drop back to $10 and set you back to the Supporter tier.

For the banner reward, the cumulative amount must be received in between the end of the previous fight and the end of the fight the year before you qualify for the banner reward, instead of a rolling total for a year. See FAQ #4 for specific dates.

Contributions for the 2025 banner must be received before the fight ends ( 3 August 2024 12:00:00 PM )

See FAQ #2 for more details about paying in smaller amounts over time to qualify for this reward.

The first 10 featured members are the users with the highest contribution totals. They are followed by 4 rows of additional supporters who are chosen on a weighted random basis. The chance of being chosen, or the weight, is directly proportionate to the amount the user has contributed.

Please note the featured users section uses your active contribution total, not your lifetime total.
Should you need to cancel your monthly payment, you can do so through PayPal itself. See this PayPal FAQ for more instructions.

Terms & Conditions:

  • If you have a problem with a payment or rewards, please contact @classicturtle, @axel, or @Rainy.
  • All contributors must follow the rules and ToS like any other user, and are not exempt from suspensions, bans or account termination. Any administrative actions taken on your account will not extend your benefits, and any such actions do not qualify you for a refund.
  • * The character you choose to include on the site banner must be appropriate, at the staff's discretion, and must not need a mask applied to them according to our Filter Guidelines. You will be asked to choose a different one if it is deemed inappropriate.

Contribution Rewards

Bonus Name Changes
