So in case you wanted to get on top of those extra missions that sporadically pop up while you're Warframing, there's a steam group and a thread on the official game site you can join and get the drop on those extra goodies from the preset "?" rewards. Blueprints and artifacts are cool, right? Right. Happy looting.
Steam group: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/WFAlerts
*Also, if you're noticing that the alerts on the thread don't match the ones in your game, you will only see them if you have that particular sector of the system unlocked.
