This listing is produced by & the Temple of the Screaming Electron BBS. It may be copied and distributed as long as no changes are made to the list.

There are many lists of bulletin boards available. However, since there are so many systems on-line, it is sometimes impossible to find the few quality systems that exist without dialing hundreds of numbers. Numbers that often have nothing to offer. This review should help to reduce the scope of the problem by providing a short description of each BBS reviewed, so that BBSers can call the systems that offer what they want.

So that the Screaming Electron can accomplish other things besides just generating BBS Reviews, the BBS Review is implemented as a distributed questionnaire. What this means is that you can fill out the questionnaire on a number of different bulletin boards, and your answers will eventually end up in the BBS Review. The BBS Systems that currently have the BBS Review are:

BBS Name Phone Baud Type Location

&TOTSE 510-935-5845 9600 RA 1.11+ Walnut Creek, CA KnowledgeMatters 510-935-4878 9600 RA 1.11+ Walnut Creek, CA Lies Unlimited 415-583-4102 2400 RA 1.11+ South San Francisco The Lighthouse II 301-645-8624 9600 RA 2.0G1 LaPlata, Md

For PHONE NUMBER CHANGES and BBS DELETIONS, leave E-Mail for Jeff Hunter at & the Temple of the Screaming Electron.

Reviews that are more than six months old are automatically deleted. This keeps old numbers from staying around for years and years, and insures that BBSes which change over time get fresh reviews periodically.

BBS entries are keyed by phone number. You can change ANY review at ANY time by simply answering the questionnaire again using the same phone number.

If you are interested in running the BBS Review on your BBS System, contact Jeff Hunter at & the Temple of the Screaming Electron, or download the file BBSREVSY.ZIP (The BBS Review Sysop Pack) from &TOTSE.

If you see a BBS listing which is incorrect or is no longer in service, please inform Jeff Hunter at the Screaming Electron, 510-935-5845, so that he can make the necessary corrections.

If you are interested in carrying the BBS Review on your system then send a file-request asking for BBSREV (The Review) and BBSREVSY (BBS Review Sysop Pack) to &TOTSE, 9:900/2, 1:161/211, or KnowledgeMatters, 1:161/201.

If you'd like to have your BBS included in the list, you can either:

1) Call any of the systems listed at the very beginning of this review

 and fill out the BBS Review Questionnaire.

2) Create a TEXT FILE in the specified format and use your mailer to

 NETMAIL it to &TOTSE @ 1:161/211.

The text file you create MUST be in the following format:

* You must name the file "BBSANSW.000" * The text file must be a plain ASCII file. No wordprocessor files,

please.

* The text file is 10 lines long. * Line 1 of the text file contains your name. (30 characters max) * Line 2 of the text file contains the BBS name that you're reviewing.

(28 characters max)

* Line 3 of the text file contains the BBS phone number in the format

###-###-####. (The format is very important.)

* Line 4 of the text file contains the city and state where the BBS is

located. (18 characters max)

* Line 5 of the text file contains the BBS's maximum baud rate. (5

characters max)

* Line 6 of the text file contains the BBS type, such as RA, Telegard,

Maximus, Wildcat, Opus, etc. (8 characters max)

* Lines 7-10 of the text file contain a description of the BBS. What

its main features are, hours of operation, main focus (if it has 
one), and WHY people should call the system. Each line can contain a 
maximum of 78 characters. You are limited to four lines for the
description.

* If you want to do additional reviews for additional systems, create

separate files called BBSANSW.001, BBSANSW.002, etc., and send them 
all in.

Once you've created this text file just send it via your mailer to 1:161/211. Your answers will automatically be added to the BBS Review. After you've created this file once you can update your listing at any time by simply uploading the file again. To get the latest copy of the review, file-request 1:161/211 using the magic name BBSREV.
