VATUSA Discord Server Announcements
« on: August 15, 2020, 07:06:47 PM »
Hi team! VATUSA is excited to announce our remodeled Discord server. Since this server's launch, we haven't gotten the opportunity to make this place home yet. The staff team took feedback from several members and believes these changes will help us collaborate better as a community and stay organization.

To begin, all VATUSA members can now join our Discord using this easy link:

The remodeled Discord server includes the following updates:

- Creation of an #announcements channel where ARTCCs can "follow" updates and automatically re-post them to their ARTCC's Discord server. This will help your ARTCC members stay in the loop with VATUSA Division updates and initiatives.
- Creation of an #events channel for Event Coordinators to advertise their events.
- Consolidation of duplicative channels and better organization of channels.
- Increased staff collaboration areas for inter-ARTCC work. This was a request of many staff members!
- ATMs/DATMs now have access to every ARTCC staff channel (TA, FE, WM, EC) to prevent the siloing of information and assist with transparency of work.
- Implementation of a private a ticket-based system for support.
- And lastly, our guarantee that moving forward we won't be updating permissions or instituting slow mode randomly on channels. Part of this remodel was setting the structure and permissions for what's right for the community. Therefore, we won't change permissions unless there's a community need to.

Please let us know if you have any questions and a reminder that the VATSIM Code of Conduct and any VATUSA policy applies to this Discord server. Thanks to Maxine Grooms for the photo.
