I know it is far fetched, but when a server is listed publicly, you have a tendency to draw in the good and bad. Would it be possible to have a central database of "unwanted" leechers? A voluntary subscription for servers that are listed publicly.

Another option, is two lists, one that is "open to the public" and another that is "communities". We would like to list our server for people to find and join, but we aren't a open to public server, if that makes sense.

Thank you!

    I guess the titles would have been more descriptive as "open to the public" and "membership communities". Something to invite potential members in, but also show we are a private community.

    You're either public, or your private, sorry. You can use the Welcome Message to warn leechers that they will be quickly dealt with, but aside from that, it's your choice to open yourself to public use.

    Creating a database of unwanted people is a very, very bad idea.

    I'm inclined to agree with Snares - the public server list is there to provide easy access to public servers for folks who don't have their own, not for you to have an easy way for members of your closed-off community to find your server.

    If you want an easy way for your community to join your Mumble, I would suggest setting up a mumble:// URL [1], though I do admit it would be nice if there where an argument that could be passed to a URL where it would ask if you wanted to add the server to your favorites (or if there were a "favorite this server" button/menu-item, but that's already been FRed).
