Nether Hub: Gay Bathroom Edition.
The Nether Hub (AKA the Big Gay Bathroom) is a room around the centre of the map (x = 0, y = 8.5, z = 0) in the nether that was built and is maintained by the community led by Cassolotl. It is a central point - all roads in the Nether Network lead to the hub.

It is connected to Subzero and Spawn Island by nether portals.

Features

We haz them.

Mob-free

The hub and the entire network are paved with slabs to prevent mob spawns.

Horse pen

Since the Nether Network is so big now, and most of the useful bits are accessible by horse, players benefit from having a horse in the nether just for getting around.

The horse pen is designed such that a player can jump over the fence, and a horse and its rider can simply walk over the fence, but a horse without a rider can't walk out alone.

Mooshrooms

There's an enclosure for some mooshrooms, plus a box full of bowls for easy mushroom soup acquisition. The mooshroom pen's floor is grass and flowers, so pigmen can spawn, though this is rare. The fence prevents their escape.

Whimsy button

Cassolotl the whimsical admin made a button that does silliness. Push it; it's totally safe but pleasingly aesthetic.

Glass lift

In one corner there is a glass lift shaft. Going up there will take you to the oldhub, and then on to the surface of the nether.

History

Oldhub: Grass Edition

The Nether Hub as seen from the portal to Subzero, in February 2016.
This was the first true "hub" in the Nether. It existed until April 2016. The new hub was built below the old one, so if you take the glass elevator shaft up you can see the remnants of the old hub and use the old network tunnels. It's paved with cobblestone to prevent pigman spawns, and the old whimsy button is still there.
  • Informal junk yard. Following the dismantling of the junk yard at Zero Zero, Cassolotl threw down a few boxes with accompanying signs and item frames for easy navigation. Players dropped off unwanted inventory items and picked up useful bits and pieces on a regular basis. It has been replaced by the new junk yard in setavulos' swamp town.
  • AFK room. Because the floor was grass blocks, pigmen and other small nether mobs could spawn freely. There was a 3x3 room protected by glass and a wooden door with a pressure plate inside for speedy escapes. It was paved with slabs to prevent spawns.
  • Navigation. Posts and paths made of coloured wool and signs led the way to the coloured arches.
