    Kalo, I think JoinFS now deserves its own entry near the top of the list of Multiplayer servers at the top right of our website's front page.

    The latest version on initial install now requires the model matching step to be performed before you can attempt a connection.

    Also are we considering putting our regular JoinFS servers on the list of available servers that can be chosen by new users of JoinFS?

    Thanks, is there a list somewhere already? Just let me know which IP's to put on the homepage, I'm not sure who is running a server now.

    Actually I was initially proposing that we submit our servers to the developer to be listed as community Hubs inside the application (View -> Hubs)

    But now that you mention it I have been running a stable AU JoinFS for us for some months available at the same IP that SIMLINK AU is available at (101.165.150.139). I believe ATCRoo also maintains one but I cannot find the IP address at present.

    Do we have a community member with direct links to the developer?

    Hi guys, I see in the newer versions of JoinFS , there is an option in settings to select your server as a public HUB.

    Thanks Pops, that's what I was referring too. I hadn't realised it did not require the dev's permission to enable Hub status.

    Kalo your thoughts on placing our servers as Hub's?

    Sounds like a good idea, maybe we could label them something like
    msFlights.net NA Central
    msFlights.net AU
    msFlights.net NA West (I think Bob mentioned he would be willing to host a node)

    I replied affirmatively to Kalo's Discord PM confirmation regarding BigBox sim server in Las Vegas as a permanent JoinFS node. I also verbally apprised Karl of that Discord conversation with Kalo. I'm happy, honored and able to continue hosting whatever sim servers and file storage the community may deem useful. In my immediate future (tomorrow and possibly into Thursday), I am going to rewire, routinely maintain and enhance the network, servers and my client computers here at my residence in Las Vegas. I will announce completion of this extensive project in text on Discord and here in this thread when completed and tested. BigBox will be off line without further announcement for some brief periods of that maintenance. Our community's file server should be unaffected and remain constantly available.
    Respects, Bob ...
