the FTSC doesn't set standards or coding practises for FTN software... we
document existing standards... when an existing standard needs to be revised,
we do that... if standard practise has changed with regard to that standard,
then we adjust the standard to match... but not before...

i want to thank you, too, for pointing out that that document may need to be
looked at... it is possible that it has already been updated and you have an
old version ;)

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;
