Thank you for your trust! As I see in the dashboard now there are not so many nodes located in Russia, they are mainly in Europe and the United States, and I’m going to launch the node in the country that I specified. And I will not use cloud services, dedicated servers or something, although I can do this if necessary:) I will use my own server located in Russia. The node will be in Siberia, which is the middle part of Russia. I hope these facts will be of interest to the team. There are only bears and vodka here :slight_smile: Just kidding. :slight_smile:

I believe any applicant who submits without even answering the questions completely should be disqualified.

Also it seems all these supporters are in the same groups and most applied but incomplete apps

Of course it is necessary to have nodes in every country but why doesn’t somebody take some extra time to give a view on the additional questions???

I provided brief information about myself, my location, and technical capabilities. Now my application was pre-approved without all these additional reasoning questions, but if it is really necessary for the team and they ask me to do it - I will do it.
