Archiving the scene's BBS past

12 Jan 2022

Bulletin board systems (BBSs) were crucial communication and file exchange hubs for the scene well up to the mid-1990s. Scattered all over the globe, they represent a whole era, both for the legal/demo and the illegal parts of the scene. Already a while ago, Demozoo began to catalogue BBSs that had a scene connection. Now, just over a year later, we have over 7500 BBSs in our system, complete with sysops, affiliated groups, BBS intros, text ads etc. – and more are getting added every day.

You can browse the “boards” through an alphabetical list, or through our BBS-related tags. But, most excitingly, you can browse the global BBS network on a world map, a generous New Year gift by Gargaj/Conspiracy.

Enjoy the trip into a forgotten era of scene history, and if you were part of that yourself, please feel welcome to join our preservation efforts in this field. Also, if you were a sysop yourself and still have your BBS back-ups, please get in touch.

  • Yeah well it has the USSR logo on it... so it IS a USSR release. Period. - ltk_tscc on Fire Force Cracktro
  • USSR does not created anything on ST. We didn't have all ST machines :-( Only Paskud have one. This is Paskud/JAO/BCA production. - muro on Fire Force Cracktro
  • This is Paskud and JAO production. Paskud was member of USSR. I don't know JAO - muro on Populous 2 Cracktro
  • Thanks to King Arthur and Frenzy for the floppy disk! - menace on Tool-Box 22
  • Used a too dark screen while making this and the TV connected to Amiga wasn't a winner either. Well, maybe I'll make an improved version on… - la_mettrie on Bad Glitch Day
