Thank you very much for clarifying that.

I have questions Smile

[1]Is there any record anywhere of the reason(s) why these proposals
were rejected?

[2]Is a software developer permitted to implement any of these
rejected proposals in his/her software?

[3]Am I correct in assuming that the FSP's are proposals awaiting
either acceptance or rejection by the FTSC?

This forum contains echomail areas hosted on Nightmare BBS You can browse local echomail areas, italian fidonet areas and a selection of international fidonet areas, reading messages posted by users in Nightmare BBS or even other BBSs all over the world. You can find file areas too (functional to fidonet technology). You can browse echomail areas and download files with no registration, but if you want to write messages in echomail areas, or use fidonet netmail (private messages with fidomet technology), you have to register. Only a minimal set of data is required, functional to echomail and netmail usage (name, password, email); a registration and login with facebook is provided too, to allow easy registration. If you won't follow rules (each echomail areas has its own, regularly posted in the echomail), your account may be suspended;
