This seems to be the place to report qtv.quakeworld bugs.

Please update AU servers to use the correct flag. They currently use USA flag.

Unfortunately this isn't possible. QTV looks up the WHOIS information of the IP addresses to see where they come. These servers are hosted on Amazon in Australia but their IPs report as being from the USA.

whois 52.64.154.198

You could always open a case with Amazon I guess but I highly doubt they would do anything considering these are free servers...

I refuse to believe that something this simple isn't possible without changing data on a 3rd party. QTV only knows about a handful of servers, would it be reasonable to provide overrides for some servers?

Also, lately I've found it just completely misses many USA / Brazil servers with players. What determines if a server shows up on qtv.quakeworld.nu?

At least one qtv server configuration file must mention the server.
d2 made this. (forum thread)
the purpose was to have one qtv server on every continent with the servers of that continent always updated.
i struggle to understand qtv, i've tried to set it up but it seems flawed . i've been too busy at work too, so thats kinda off my radar..
never argue with an idiot. they'll bring you back to their level and then beat you with experience.

The list of servers are not populated automatically. QTV servers are manually added to qtv.quakeworld.nu and each of those QTV servers have the servers they monitor manually added also. If someone sets up a QW server they need to go through this whole process to get it on qtv.quakeworld.nu...

qtv.besmella.com - I have to painstakingly manage this list for any server I set up. nQuakesv sets up a separate QTV server for every deployment which means sometimes you have 1 QTV server per 1 QW server and they are not added to qtv.quakeworld.nu
