Ouch, I didn’t get an invite. My day is ruined :frowning: Is there anything I can add/improve to be reconsidered?

It’s not a final decision, I believe you could still have chances if you defended your application here and/or here.

I am deploying my node at my friend’s place in LT. I thought it is allowed

@gummybear We mentioned in the decision post that many of the nodes in the orange team were cross-jurisdictional and when selecting we have preferred nodes run in the same jurisdiction as the operator. There was also a large number of applicants from the same region as you so we had to take into consideration the quality of the application and the completeness of it. You can always provide further information on your application/ answer more questions here in the comments. We appreciate feedback and value participation so we will take this into consideration before posting the final decision. Thank you!
