Game Server Announcements + Site Logo Subtitle Possibilities

First things first. I'd like to add a subtitle to our long-standing site logo. As Sanctuary accumulates more and more content and guides and as we start hosting events and tourneys, I think more and more people are going to come ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) here to just see something really quick and then leave. Which is actually fine, but I also really think we should make it more clear what the site goals are right in the logo so people don't have to view an entirely separate page just to see what the site is very basically about. I think I brought this up a while ago but it got voted down because, uh... I don't remember at all. I think you guys just wanted a clean logo? And if Sanctuary were much more well-known, then I would absolutely agree, but nobody knows who we are right now. And let's be quite honest here. Very few people are gonna go to the FAQ and read it. Or at least, they won't if they don't even know what we're basically about.

I think I'll just duplicate the default Night Mode theme, insert the subtitled logo into the duplicate theme, and make that duplicate the default, so if people don't like it and if they're using Night Mode, they can just switch out to the clean logo. Seems to be the best of all worlds. As to WHAT the subtitle will be, the jury's still out on that.

And next, we need to choose our next game server. I think I'll probably be paying for it. At this time, me and @M0nke3 really want to start up the old Minecraft server again. I know @gaijinkaiju also would be down for that. We have all the old server files and we have two possibilities for a host. We can do our old standby which we've used for both UT2004 and El Dewrito, EliteGameServers. Or we can do Nodecraft, which we did in the past for Garry's Mod, which is cheaper and higher quality BUT doesn't support even half the games that EliteGameServers does, so for our intents and purposes, Nodecraft pretty much only does Minecraft.

I actually forgot I had Minecraft for a while there, we haven't done anything with that in quite a long time.

Logo Subtitle: womansmilingleatherbrowntanjacketsoldierresistancefighterww2_medal_of_honor_underground_by_gma

Just do random.txt like kf
Otherwise you'll just get shit like "insert words here" and while it may be thought provoking and all while saying something of the site's personality/what it encompasses its repetition won't add to it

The random text is actually already kinda done with the fake ads. 5 of the 20 ads have text related to Sanctuary. But the logo subtitle would purely be there for people entirely new to the site so they can tell with just a quick glance at the logo what the fuck we're even about.

I quite like "Raw data for raw nerves".
That was the ye olde TOTSE2 subtitle. OG TOTSE was Read * Know * Do.

TOTSE2's subtitle was definitely better than TOTSE's in my opinion, but the problem is... I still think it's just a tad too vague. What kind of raw data? Are we an archival site? A site about statistics? Also, even though I am directly from the TOTSE2 community, which has long since been defunct, using the subtitle beyond just in the fake ads feels like I'm plagiarizing instead of making a fun callback to our very early days.

Or maybe I need to grow some balls and stop being so sensitive about it. I will at least say that of all the TOTSE and TOTSE2 off-shoots, Sanctuary is, at this time, the most appropriate site to carry on that subtitle.
