As Sentinel's userbase and reputation continue to balloon more and more every day, it doesn't take a keen observer to notice that the community is becoming much more busy.

Sentinel's decentralised community is a reflection of the the decentralised nature of the project itself: An umbrella under which countless separate teams and individuals develop countless different products, all allied together in a campaign for privacy. It's easy to see how the tendency of Sentinel enthusiasts to carve out little kingdoms and clubhouses for themselves and their peers within the social structure of the project could be overwhelming to newcomers—but these groups, subgroups, channels, cliques, and servers that we inhabit all serve a purpose, we promise!

If you're new to this project, we hope that this directory will help you to tailor your Sentinel community experience, and find a balance of both engagement and information consumption that works for you as an individual.

At S.I.N. we've created two of these directories before; but dVPN.news has finally provided us with a static home for it that can be re-accessed and continually updated with ease.
