VACenter Project Update


I thought it be necessary to inform you all about the current state of VACenter.

Firstly, I’d like to thank those currently funding VACenter, notably @AlitaliaVirtual and @TAP_Portugal_VA.

Secondly, I’ll address the inactivity from myself. Just went through exams, and now I’ll be back to code VACenter. Additionally many of you may be aware with my work on IFFMC, that has taken some time away from VACenter.

Lastly, I’ll outline my vision for VACenter going forward.

It is not difficult to see that a major blocking factor for VA’s getting their own VACenter is the self hosting requirement (or purchasing VACenter Hosting).

As such, VACenter will be moving to a discord like model, where you can create your own servers or in our cases, instances of VACenter on the fly. We believe this to be necessary for future expansion.

More information on our plans will come out in our weekly updates in Discord Server.

I’d like to thank you all for your support in making a hodgepodge project become where it is today.

Thank you,

Sam Neale,
Lead Developer

Welcome @Adrian_K to the VACenter Team

Hello again! We’ve got some big news, with a new member to our team!

Adrian is from Fiji and started software development with themes for the popular forum software (including that used by the IFC) discourse, as well as bots for discord. He has created many, high quality, websites for VAs, and will join the team to continue his work under the VAWeb brand (some of you might remember this name, the program was discontinued but will be revived by Adrian).

We can’t wait to expand the services we offer, now to VA websites with the help of Adrian.

Please welcome @Adrian_K!
