That has nothing to do with the FTSC.

Nothing has been drafted. Maybe another proposal, but can not be turned into a
standard for another million years.

Again, something has to be drafted, and in this case.. can it be? Another
protocol/service is being used to "gate" into Fidonet.

Based off current standards and proposals, more than likely. If anything new is
made, show the FTSC so they can document it.

Nick as in Nick Andre? New Enough? Do you live in space?

We basically have to support what's left, because by definition if we don't
have 7? members, the FTSC is null and void.

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;
