How do I find Nations to apply to? How do Nation Admins find new Viners?

Nations are the most important part of Newsvine, so joining one is a great first step to getting the most out of the site.

One of the best ways to find Nations that interest you is to use the NationFinder. You can search all Open and Gated nations, joining Open Nations and applying to Gated ones. Click 'Apply' or 'Join' right from the results list.


You can also join nations by clicking 'apply' from nation discussions themselves.


Nation Administrators can use the revamped Greenhouse to find Viners who are Nationless and have contributed recently. Newsvine staff ensures that the Greenhouse is free of spammers and self-promoters, and restocked regularly!

Nation Admins can always invite Viners from discussions, too.
