    Well, Aurora has been running for four years, and we've grown to have over 200,000 in-game accounts and 600 Discord accounts.

    We created social media accounts (namely Twitter and Facebook) back at the very creation of Aurora... but we haven't used it much. We've made a few attempts over the years, but nothing has really caught on.

    That said, we figure after four years, we should make a real attempt at actively taking advantage of social media. We are going to be making some much-needed updates to the accounts over the next week and will start adding content fairly often.

    That said, we would like to know what kinds of content you would be interesting in seeing, along with any other ideas you would like to see implemented for our social media.

    Let us know here what you think!

    I have 150 followers on Insta and usually get around 12 likes per photo. I could potentially set up an aurora gaming account on instagram or advertise you guys on my Profile. Instagram is currently the most trendy of all the social medias and you can also show photos of the server too.

    well think of other servers. I'm not saying use copyright or anything but we as a server can use a similar concept. Minigame servers have always been a hit, add underground in an area a couple of minigames that can occasionally happen so that aurora uses can come back onto the server and have something else to do. Like some fun games I have played on other minigame servers, who's the killer, battle royal, tank wars but if you consider tank wars change it up more, ctg, battle dome, and many others. I would love playing these games and I'm sure other users would like to try them out. If you use these ideas make a chat that notify the people like oh hey there are minigames to play here too? This was about social media but maybe you can have tokens for the game? That help unlock stronger weapons that you can use in these minigames. You can make it so that if people follow these social media accounts they get extra tokens. I haven't thought of every possible thing except for tokens and minigame upgrades. The extra content would be amazing but it's your choice- Thank you

    about the social media accounts sorry if these are long. When someone from aurora terraria follows a social media account that benefits you. Have them tweet or reply with there aurora game name. Like if I follow your YouTube and I will just lmk what it is called but say I leave a comment on your video> I subscribed @controlll. This can lyk that this person is supporting the aurora community and you can benefit them in some way. Perhaps you can give away social media shout outs for people who want more followers, etc. All they have to do is stay following this social media account to potentially get one. I am still thinking of ideas I will send more comments when I do

    Help, I'm a hermit, I don't use social media anyway. Can you tell me how the updates are going, or get another staff member to whisper casually in my ear later?

    Yeah, Instagram would be cool in my opinion. I have twitter, facebook, and insta but just personal accounts. Instagram would be really cool to show off ingame art and major announcements, just my opinion.

    I know a lot of “verified” people/brand/teams have Snapchat too. Don’t know how you could use it but just an idea.

    The social media pages:
    1) Twitter-no tweet since feb 6, 2018
    2) Facebook- no posts since January 8, 2018.

    If you run out of things to say, feature a build once a week on both. The official Terraria forums accept every build/art about terraria. You can do the same for this server.

    why not a channel twitch where there would be direct, on events, boss fight, live tutorials on, how to build a good base, how to be good in pvp, presentation of mods, new aurora (forum, discord) also warframe not only terraria and minecraft. a channel discord: twitch , youtube, and other social networks. the rebroadcast on the channel for more video and a new category of the forum where there would be all the live broadcast, replay and the latest video from the channel youtube.
    it is only an idea and examples.

    I allow myself to relaunch this thread for one last ideas on my part, it has nothing to do with social media but it could make the server more popular, so an idea came to me why not a mod specially based on aurora, but not a mod with a story but a mod with decorations, weapons (weapon causing a northern light) armor, crafting stations, blocks, etc., I hope you follow me, I know it's a huge job in addition to the survival server in a state of preparation if I'm not mistaken but aurora has many members and maybe some of them can be useful, I can eventually do
    sprites or create a thread on TCF there are many sprite creators, moders, coders, etc.
    and install it on aurora which would make it one of the only servers with mods I know that everything I said before and very complicated has been achieved but fesabble and in addition the result can be fruitful, when an evil for a property, after that they are just ideas.

    This is my ideas, tell me if it is feasible or not and if it is good.

    Why not hold a Building Contest every month or so and post updates?
