Volition Servers Update

In our promotional video, I outlined 4 promises to start our pursuit of our greater mission statement.
1. We will provide and maintain a healthy Discord server for you and your friends.
2. We are bringing the community together.
3. We will keep the community informed.
4. We will provide game servers for our player base to enjoy.

So how are things going so far? 🤔

1. We will provide and maintain a healthy Discord server for you and your friends.
Even with our raised activity, the Discord server population is declining.  Fear not!  This is great news and evidence of our dedication to maintaining a healthy Discord server!

Our moderation team are still hard at work pruning bots and scammers.  Better late than never; we are combing through our existing members for suspicious accounts that have been around for years.  Thank you to everyone reporting predatory behavior.  It's a never ending battle, so please give the team some appreciation!  Thank you @Junko and @Eggnog

2. We are bringing the community together.
Just last Friday we hosted a Team Fortress 2 play session and had a blast getting an absolute cacophony of chaos and absurdity.  Here's a taste of the instanity: https://youtu.be/7PSBJzxqSIo Thank you very much to the VTF Team for helping make it possible!

Next week we're going to have a more sensible but likely equally chaotic experience on the Project Zomboid server.  We'd love to see you there: https://discord.gg/Bx9K53jA?event=1254079891100536862

3. We will keep the community informed. 
As laid out in the Some Unhinged Meme News post, gaming news has been relatively calm.  Although I'm personally excited for some upcoming titles, industry news is lacking.  That being said, as promised, you can visit the Gaming-News channel on our Discord to stay up to date on worthwhile news curated for you weekly.  Latest news includes Embracer Group leaning heavy into the AI hype and causing some predictable controversy.

News, announcements and events are going to be cross posted across multiple platforms going forward.  We can definitely use your help in creating worthwhile content that can be shared on multiple websites.  Twitch streams, Medal.tv clips, youtube videos and more can all be invaluable as content that is worthy of being shared on all of our platforms.  As such, we desperately need to find a way to encourage and reward content creators withing Volition Servers.  Please let us know if you have any suggestions and follow us on our other platforms to show your support!

We are now cross posting events, announcements and gaming news on the following platforms.
VS Steam Group: https://steamcommunity.com/groups/VolitionServers
VS Subreddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/VolitionServers/
Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/61559133710669/
X.com: https://x.com/VSOfficials

AND I'm beginning 'CPR' on the VS forums over at https://volitionservers.com/ .  Right now, this is only indicated by the cross posting of announcements and news.  I remember @AppData used to post guides and in depth suggestions for our old I&A server.  Maybe one day we can see creative contributions like that once more.  This is all in an effort to improve Search Engine Optimization or (SEO) but hopefully results in diversifying the way our community can engage with Volition Servers.

4. We will provide game servers for our player base to enjoy.
I'm proud to announce that we found an ambitious member of the community with a desire to contribute to the value of Volition Servers.  Coming soon to a server browser near you, Volition Servers will be starting a Valheim server with @TokeMasterGreen as our latest addition to the VS Staff as Game Master.  

Valheim is a brutal exploration and survival game for 1-10 players, set in a procedurally-generated purgatory inspired by viking culture. Battle, build, and conquer your way to a saga worthy of Odin’s patronage!

Available for only $19.99USD @ https://store.steampowered.com/app/892970/Valheim/

Please stay tuned for more updates as we get the server properly configured and add the option to our role menu to subscribe to Valheim announcements as well as create the necessary channels under the OFFICIAL VS SERVERS category.

Thank you for being a part of Volition Servers.  If you want to support us and our mission, you can rent your own server @ https://volition.host/ on high end specs.
