INFO

When Fidonet introduced the concept of zones, they decided that each would be based on major geographical and continental boundaries. They came up with a layout of six zones that encompass the entire world. It was also decided that each zone would have a coordinator to oversee the regions and networks within that zone. They decided to call this position the ZC. This position is described by the following quote from the current Fidonet Policy document .

A zone is a large geographic area containing many regions, covering one or more countries and/or continents.

The Zone Coordinator compiles the nodelists from all of the regions in the zone, and creates the master nodelist and difference file, which is then distributed over FidoNet in the zone. A Zone Coordinator does not perform message-forwarding services for any nodes in the zone.

Zone Coordinators are selected by the Regional Coordinators in that zone.

The following chart shows who held the ZC position in each year for each zone. Some zones had more than one ZC in the year. When this is the case, they are listed in the order in which they served.
