Log Message:
Add/use new FTN "BBSID" control paragraph (kludge line)Advertise the system's
QWK-ID (a.k.a. BBS ID) in exported echomail messages. This will allow
correlation of avatars that were imported via SYNCDATA carried via QWKnet (e.g.
DOVE-Net) with messages imported from those same BBSes via FTN.The alternative
was to have SYNCDATA Avatar messages include all the AKAs of each BBS (in the
body text), but that was looking like a rather complicated solution. This
approach (the BBSID kludge) seems a much simpler solution.I still need to
implement the JS side of this solution however (for avatar lookups using the
FTN BBSID), but this was the first important step.

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;
