..We used to use a product called Wildcat for BBS back in the day. Good system for the times and hardware it ran on..
Wildcat BBS software was the most used, most popular system for sysops and users alike back in the day.
..As for the internet, it's reflective of the audience it serves. Certainly not the place it once was for many reasons..
So true. In spite of everything today's Web offers, the experience of connecting with users via a BBS system remains unmatched.
Kailef, a 'Dura-Europos' BBS user, says it well: “I always enjoyed BBSing back in the 80s and early 90s, and I find a BBS to be a lot more 'personable' than a website. A website has a very public feel to it, whereas a BBS feels very much like being invited into someone’s living room.
..I have people trying to hack into this board constantly. Our two step registration process has largely thwarted hackers and others bent on destruction. No penis enlargement pill ads in the near foreseeable future.
Whatever it takes to keep trouble makers at bay and make sure things remain as 'personable,' informative, warm and friendly as they are here, I'd say that everyone who takes an active part on your site is supportive of your efforts, Scott!
