Your Sysop is Daryl Stout, WX1DER. Depending on your web browser, you may hear a clap of thunder when the page reloads. The thunderclap is courtesy of
freesfx.co.uk, and the thunderstorm graphic is courtesy of Diane Cornett.
While weather and ham radio are the main themes, no RF enters,
or leaves the BBS; and you are NOT REQUIRED to be a licensed amateur radio operator to access the BBS.
The BBS is OFFLINE when thunderstorms are in, or threaten the area (which can be at any time)...and from 11:55pm to 12:15am U.S. Central Time daily for Nightly Maintenance...sorry for any inconvenience for the downtimes. In short, if you can't connect to the BBS, please try again later. Weather information for Arkansas is located here.
To deal with the spambots, etc., ALL USERS must enter a random CAPTCHA code, before they will be allowed to logon to the BBS. Failure to enter the correct code will BLOCK the IP address for twenty-four (24) hours.
What you do OUTSIDE THE BBS is YOUR BUSINESS, but YOU'RE A GUEST IN MY HOME AT LOGON. You can view a
LIMITED view of the BBS by choosing the Ftelnet Logon option, clicking on
CONNECT, then at the Logon Options Menu, choose Logon As a GUEST. However, for full BBS access...if you're not already a Verified User In Good Standing, you will need to choose the New User option.
For important information on the Ftelnet Logon option, select that entry from the left panel of the Doorgame Scores Navigation Tab. Note that the Adobe Flash Player is REQUIRED in your web browser to logon via FTelnet.
Note that ALL USERS ARE REQUIRED to READ, and AGREE to the BBS Disclaimer (in the file DISCLAIM.ZIP in
File Board 1, to ACCESS and USE the BBS. Your CONTINUED BBS USE is your ACCEPTANCE of what's in
the BBS Disclaimer, whether you read it or not. Shortened versions of these files are in the left panel under the Doorgame Scores Navigation Tab. New Users are REQUIRED to send New User Feedback
to the Sysop, telling where they heard of the BBS, and what they are looking for. A one word reply of ''HELLO'' or ''YO'' is NOT sufficient. They also must enter a random code that will be emailed to them, before an access level upgrade will be granted. Failure to do this will result
in their account being deleted from the BBS, without comment.
Please see the file WLCM2BBS.ZIP in File Board 1, or read "Welcome To The BBS" in
the System Notices Message Area for IMPORTANT INFORMATION. If you have questions, or wish to leave Feedback for the Sysop, click here...or choose the Feedback To Sysop option via an Ftelnet logon.
