Deceide sent along this word about Quake Domain's Quake2 Server List:

    Quake Domain's Quake 2 server list now includes servers from id Software's Quake 2 master. Just set "public 1" and your server will automatically show up in the server list at http://www.gameaholic.com/servers/quake2/, as well as in all search engines on the site. Of course server ops should still add their locations at http://www.gameaholic.com/q-adds.htm.
