I know I'm going to sound like a nazi here but, donator is not a word. It'd be nice if everywhere "donator" is used was changed to "donor". NPCs and things really aren't a big deal, but server notices and commands... really? Someone had to say it. =P

Wikipedia, eh? Try a dictionary. =P

We can toss around dictionary sources all we want, but it's just an improper usage most likely derived from common mispronunciation. Eitherway, it isn't a big issue and I'm probably the only one bothered by it.

I"m not concerned about the donator vs. donor thing. It's part of the evolution of English and formed out of want for simplicity (donate -> donator).

However, it would be nice if you chose one and made it constant.

I can care less about if it's donator or donor, But I honestly would go for Donor. Simpler to type, and more proper.
Just my Opinion though.
