If you compare all three, Gitlab and Github is very similar and Sourceforge the
horrible mess. I'm not very deep into Gitlab or Github, but my impression is
that since Microsoft bought Github they have added features to the free plan,
that had only been available in the free Gitlab plan before. The biggest
advantage of Gitlab is that is open source (if you really want to install it on
your own server). It also has a better search. Overall I find Github a bit
easier to use. They are both equally good options.

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;
