Just had the in game message about server going down in 30, please admin and developers can you post on Twitter and Facebook thank you. This is the modern age and more people are on Twitter and Facebook than the forums also FB and Twitter both have notifications you forums don’t.

Thank you please do this

Yes that would be great too, when mulder was here he used to post twice, once at the top but also in th general forum too.
But with out notifications it’s easy to miss.
All I ask is can we please have a quick tweet and a face update so we know that would be great.

I know people in game already know but this game a 24 open server game so what if you have just woke up thinking about playing for the morning or night etc you wouldn’t not have know about it until you tried to log..

Please consider this feature thank you

It's pretty late, I'd rather have an announcement 24 hours beforehand and posted in General Discussion as well, but you can't say they didn't announce it here though.

Yes I did see that but it wasn’t until after the in game notifications. I rarely check the announcements now as they hardly ever have anything new. My home is in the general and would be nice if they repeated the announcements here. This also give the players a chance to give feedback as well although not always good feedback

This looks like an emergency issue that had to be fixed right away. Would you have rather VR identified the issue, fixed it, posted an announcement in the forums (and social media), then waited 24 hours before releasing the fix? I doubt it..

It’s nice to get advance notice, but when there is an immediate issue that has to be fixed right away, niceties fly out the window. Every other game developer will do the same thing.

I agree that it would be nice to have it posted in General Discussion as well. Most likely it will need to be locked immediately, otherwise players will “give feedback” (basically complain, since theres no point in giving feedback about bug fixes lol).

Next players will be asking for direct notifications to be sent to their phone that sounds an alarm in case they're sleeping and miss the in game announcements and the Facebook and Twitter announcements.

I am not active on (a)social networks, can I give them my address, so they can send notifications via postman?

I do not own electronics may I receieve a man on horseback to receive relevant news regarding this video game through word of mouth passed on by many other horse back riders.
