Can somebody please remove the phone number for my old BBS: https://demozoo.org/bbs/2784/
I find the full phone number to be irrelevant information, especially since the BBS is long gone and the phone number might be in use by somebody else today. I would prefer if you rather just published the area code (0246).

If of interest you can add the following information:
Time Bomb BBS was up and running between 1994-1996. The BBS software used was a (legal) copy of RatSoft/ST, hosted on an Atari Mega STE computer.

daniel: Done. Looks good to you now?

daniel - 15:46 13 August 2021 #

@menace: Thanks! If you want you can remove the quotation marks and "Daniel told us;", but I'll leave that up to you guys.

Could you please remove all screenshots from: https://demozoo.org/graphics/276958/

I need to upload some new full length grabs.


FuZioN - 12:20 12 September 2021 #


Can I have the smaller grabs removed from https://demozoo.org/graphics/205182/ and leave the 2 full length grabs intact.

Many thanks. (:

FuZioN - 17:52 14 September 2021 #

Cheers Brittle.

The screengrabs on https://demozoo.org/productions/276958/screenshots/ are still there. Could I have them all removed apart from the last 2 full length grabs.

https://demozoo.org/sceners/18390/ is the same person as https://demozoo.org/sceners/1127/

Also, these are not made by that person (but a different person with the same very common first name):

Also, I'm 99.999% sure these are made by yet another person with the same first name:

https://demozoo.org/productions/18964/ says "The main music is a cover version of a song called "Punish Your Machine" by Front 242." but this feels unsubstantiated to me, the two songs don't even feel remotely close; the title is also just "Robotnik" according to the file_id.diz

Is there a reason for locking my user page details?


After changing my User name in the past, i noticed today, my page is locked for editing? Did i missed something?

menace - 07:18 5 October 2021 #

Elko: Sorry for the late reply.

Your account was locked after an edit was made that changed the credit of every single thing you were ever credited on as "Elko" to something else. That is the reason.

Elko - 21:23 6 October 2021 #

Ah just changed the Name from "Elko" to "Erich" with the Edit Pencil :D think that was the Problem. Sorry. Did'nt recognize it.

Elko - 21:29 6 October 2021 #

Think there is a reason for wearing Glases from time to time, when u get older.

havoc - 11:24 25 October 2021 #

recently i see quite a number of physical locations getting added to dutch bbs'es and their operators
that information seems to be derived from the assumption that area codes in dutch phone numbers can be linked 1:1 to communities ("gemeentes")
unfortunately this assumption is almost completely incorrect
for example, in my rural area in the east of holland, the phone area code is shared between 4 different communities, and in areas of communities that are bordering a bigger city you sometimes get assigned a phone line with the area code of that bigger city instead of a local one
please keep this in mind and act accordingly if you do not wish to pollute your database with false information :)

dipswitch - 10:03 26 October 2021 #

@havoc, thanks for the info! when adding location to bbss, i usually went with https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lijst_van_historische_Nederlandse_netnummers and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telephone_numbers_in_the_Netherlands

do you have any concrete examples where this went wrong? i'll be more than happy to fix.

havoc - 20:20 26 October 2021 #

@dipswitch, https://demozoo.org/bbs/7178/ is an example. 0341 is harderwijk region but this also includes the independent communities of putten, nunspeet and ermelo. if the phone number is from before october 1995 then it would be most logical to assume the bbs was located in nunspeet community. but even this cannot be said for sure because it is unclear on what date in 1995 the number was announced and after october 1995 the "2" after "0341" was assigned to customers in all 4 communities.

what makes the situation even more complex is that communities reorganisations are an ongoing process since many decades in our country. for example, the village i live in has been part of 3 different communities since 1985, and probably 4 in about 4-5 years from now.

so to make a long story short- linking area codes to dutch communities is practically impossible, any random location that you have deducted based on those two articles has a serious chance of being incorrect. :(

https://demozoo.org/groups/79867/ "January 1991 saw Highlander leaving for Companions." I believe he left for Compagnions ( https://demozoo.org/groups/68425/ )

Discovered this while researching a production from Companions, which seems to be a 2-3 person group from Norway & Sweden.

havoc - 22:00 26 October 2021 #

a few more examples that i found in the first few results of a simple search for dutch bbs-es:

https://demozoo.org/bbs/1979/ 01714 is definitely not "noordwijk" or "leiden". if i was a betting man i'd put my money on "kouderkerk aan den rijn" or another smaller hamlet in present-day "alphen aan den rijn" community.

https://demozoo.org/bbs/4345/ 0182-352xxx puts suspicion on "schoonhoven" or nearby smaller hamlets rather than "gouda". "schoonhoven" used to be it's own community and nowadays is part of "krimpen aan den ijssel" community.

https://demozoo.org/bbs/9/ 0229-444xxx puts suspicion on "avenhorn" or nearby smaller hamlets rather than "hoorn". "avenhorn" once was it's own community, then merged into "wester-koggenland", and nowadays is part of "koggenland" community.

rtiainen - 06:46 30 October 2021 #

https://demozoo.org/groups/16504/ and https://demozoo.org/groups/124312/ are the same group and should be merged.

is there some way to actually delete slengpung links from profiles? i mean like really, really delete so that it is entirely gone, and not just "hiding" it but keeping the link easily accessible for the general public via the external link editor and the edit history

Could someone remove the death notice from my page? I didn't quit in 2005. :P https://demozoo.org/sceners/67808/

Also "Atari 8-bit coder" would be just a side note. Yes, I had an 800XL before the Amiga and coded on it, but there are no releases.

Additionally, who is this "Tom"? He sure wasn't in Silicon League, but in Black Division we had a Kessler with a different surname, who probably also was in Black Monks later, but not in Spreadpoint. He didn't do any coding. That whole entry seems a bit messed up.
