Chatting with Fido2telebot and in any group:
Most command operations are constructed by starting the command with two
command-symbols and terminating the command with two command-symbols and a new
line. The command-symbols can be any of the following:

- . , = + / $ and their combinations.

Currently there are three commands:

SUBJ: (for specifying a subject)
TO: (to address your message to a specific name)
CC: (to generate a copy of the message to another echo)

Additional spaces between the commands is optional.
The commands are not case senstive.


[1] You can specify a custom subject:

[2] You can address the message to a specific name:

//to: firstname lastname//

[3] You can send a copy of the message to any other echo that
the tg BBS knows about:

Only one tagname is allowed per command line.

Examples of usage:

[Message 1]

//To: Brother Rabbit 2:460/5858//
..subj: #### ..

[Message 2]

..To: Brother Rabbit 2:460/5858..
++ subj: #### ==

[Message 3]

//to: firstname lastname//


Normally, when a message is posted, the first 1-69 characters of a
message will be used as the Subject.

This posting is subject to change and updates.

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;
