Voices of Asgardia to get a Makeover

Voices of Asgardia, Asgardia’s premiere radio station is getting a makeover.

For the first time in months, www.voicesofasgardia.com is being revived thanks in part to efforts by VOA’s Staff who have been working quietly behind the scenes while station founder Ryan Zohar was on furlough following a cross-country household move to Arkansas, United States.

Things to expect with the makeover:
>> New website design and layout. Graphics Coordinator Eric Viana, who is also the acting webmaster, is currently working with an Asgardian volunteer on migrating the site and radio station to a private server in Germany. Eric will be implementing a new site design in the near future, geared towards suggestions from  fans and contributors.

Voting Boundries Proposal

Changes made on the 22 of June, 2017 to Asgardian Leadership Elections are
now in effect. In an article posted on Asgardia News Network, it was
reported that after listening to community feedback, the following changes
were made to voting boundaries:

votes, are now expanded to a 300km radius. This is in hopes of allowing
debutants of reaching the 10 vote minimum, in even the most remote areas of
the globe.

Strategists, who require 100 votes, now have no border restrictions giving
all asgardians the ability to vote for Strategists globally.

The article ends by saying: With 241,719 asgardians and counting, the
nation-state has almost reached the quarter million mark, and as we keep
growing, and you keep spreading the wor...

To our supporters, constituents, devotees and fans, a warm salutation from the staff at Voices of Asgardia. It’s been a very busy week here as we are adjusting to the work flow changes inspired by news article incorporation, but our newest team members assure you they’re up to the task and we are very pleased with the outcome.

The reason for this letter covers something very important that we felt we needed to clarify. A few weeks ago, we were astonished to find a member of our community blasting our chat window in regards to a dispute with the management entity known as Civic Asgardia. They were quite clear in announcing their feelings on the matter, and asked to be removed from our community as well...
