New Menu on Libertas Vox

We are always looking for ways to ensure we have a platform that is as resilient as possible in today’s climate of uncertainty. Currently the Libertas Vox database is migrating to SQL, which will allow us to spin up dedicated co-located servers quickly and reliably, as and when needed, to ensure an uninterrupted service. This will prevent Libertas from suffering the same fate that other social media platforms have incurred.
