When the IFN issued its recent Red Alert, I sent inquiries to some friends to see if they were going to partake in Arkadia's defense. A few had no idea the alert was given, and there was <6 hours before the first attacks occured. This got me thinking: What if I hadn't said anything? What about people that don't use the forums at all, or rarely so? My suggestion is: can the IFN have screens in-game, placed in visible locations of firebases and major urban centers, that display important messages (ie. impending oratan attacks)? Or perhaps make use of the existing advertisment boards?
