What is the EchoList?

The Zone 1 Echo list is used by Backbone distributors to verify that the echo area is moderated by an active moderator, and to record the characteristics of that particular area (it's topic and it's rules). The echo list coordinator, currently Ben Ritchey, 1:1/21, releases a monthly information file, normally named with the prefix ELIST and the suffix for the year/month of it's release. You can see the existing archives of the echolist.


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;
