JKHub is now open to the public
Roughly a year ago, work was first started on the Jedi Knight Hub, with the lofty goal of being the central website for all things related to Jedi Academy and (to a lesser extent) Jedi Outcast. Though many people thought it couldn't possibly work, I've never met a single person who didn't want it to work. Today, we are finally opening up to the public after our lengthy private testing and development period.
What we do
We hope to offer the Jedi Knight community lots of cool stuff that was never previously available. We offer a plethora of services, ranging from free webhosting to places to advertise your own clan or group. I'll go over a full list of services in the next paragraph.
JKHub is an initiative by Jedi Knight players. We are not funded by any corporation or commercial entities. We do not make any profit from JKHub, and our website is managed by a team of volunteers.
These are some of the services we offer at this moment. We're always looking to expand this list, and will be offering more in the very near future. Some very good reasons to hang around JKHub:
- Our forum provides places to advertise, places to talk about modding, support with technical issues, a place to advertise your events to all of JKHub, and more. For trusted coders, we even provide a forum to discuss exploits and security issues and their solutions.
- Our calendar, in conjunction with your events forum, allows you to advertise events to anyone frequenting JKHub.
- We provide stable mod hosting that allows you to manage, edit, rate and comment on mods.
- We provide a directory of links that can be used by communities to drive extra traffic to their website, or to easily find clans and modding resources, for example.
- We provide tutorials, many of which are exclusive to our site. You can rate, discuss, and create your own tutorials.
- We provide free webhosting that is currently used by a plethora of Jedi Knight websites, including very large ones.
- We provide the JKHub Bar, that lets you drive more traffic to your website.
- We provide JK3.in: a service that allows you to more easily connect to servers, without knowing their IPs.
Over the coming weeks, we'll be adding even more cool stuff to JKHub. We'll be posting several interviews, and keep you up to date on any Jedi Knight related news. We'll also be advertising on even more websites.
In short: stay tuned, even more cool stuff is on the way. Until then, if you're still reading this, why not check out the rest of the website and register if you haven't already? Maybe even say hello?
I've already thanked them privately, but I'd just like to once again thank over 150 current and former players who have been aiding development for over a year. They contributed in wildly varying ways, ranging from granting us permission to host their mods to creating graphics, but they are basically the one reason JKHub ever got as far as it did.
To our testers, you know who you are: thank you.
For those who find this post too long to read (and I don't blame you), here's a fun infographic instead, describing what JKHub is:
