Suggestion for Companion App - Server History information

I'd like to suggest having the server history be accessible from the companion app with the stipulation that it only shows information based on the most recent time you visited a library within game.

If you want more recent information you'd need to go back to the library to get a fresh snapshot.

Thank you for your time. :)

    Snapshot?
    I don't think server history can be contained in a library.
    I'm also not sure why server history would need to be contained in a library rather than something anyone could read on a companion app.
    I shouldn't have to visit a server to read about the history of the server.

    I can see visiting a library to find snapshots of ancient, pre-launch lore.

    The history of each server will be tracked and visible to players.[66]

    We're gonna keep track of the history of the world so that we can tell people the story up to the current day. A player who's brand new, who's come in at the six-month mark can take a look at each server, what each server has done, how each server has tackled the storyline; and they can decide for themselves what community they want to join; what version of the world that they want to take part in.[66] – Jeffrey Bard

    Yes. I see no mention of a library in that quote.

    Seems like server history will be available at a scientific node's library: https://ashesofcreation.com/news/2019-04-10-know-your-nodes-scientific-node-type

    That Know Your Nodes Article does indicte that server history will be available at the Library of a Stage 3 Scientific Node. I guess the info found at a Library doesn't have to be in a book.

    The JB quote indicates that the history of each server will be available outside of the Library in such a manner that anyone can read the server history of all servers before joining a server.
