    Hey guys.

    It's good to be back. I have a dumb qustion for you guys though. Since being down for so long, I lost all my long time users, so I thought it would be good to post a view ads to get the word out that I am back up and running. Question: How do you make (which program) and upload ads on Dove-net, etc? It's been so long, I have totally forgotten. It's like learning everything all over again. :)

    This should explain everything...

    Just remember to use -i switch to import a text file you create along with a header file.

    So the syntax should be something like this...

    smbutil iC:\sbbs\someFolder\someFile.TXT c:\sbbs\data\subs\echoFolder.shd < Header.hdr

    The Header.hdr format...

    I was on your BBS and din't get any of the files I was looking for.

    I had in the past looked for the qwknet file as well. You wrote me a message saying it was in area 25, and it wasn't. I think I do not have access to that area... I think I may be using my real name ... Joe Schweier

    Thanx

    Ok, I will check now and see if you have the appropriate access..

    [checking]

    Ok, you should have access to the Wildcat! file area now. I've moved
    all of my stuff of a special directory for Wildcat! folks. A search
    for QWK or qwknet should yield the results you are looking for.

    I downloaded it the other day. I am interested in that auto post script you have to post txt files to message areas.

    I have an idea... I'll shoot you an eamil at your BBS on something else I have been thinking that may bridge WINS with Synchronet as well.

    You're welcome. Actually dug up the code to look at it yesterday and
    found that there were a few things that needed fixing (the code has
    gone through 4 rewrites since I've lost the code for previous
    versions). You are running Wildcat! 6.x, correct?

    After a while don't we have the risk of having board just filled with auto post, spam like some newsgroups fell the victim of, brought theirs death
    faster if you ask me.

    it's easy to make a script like you say. But it's not because some can that he should.

    I'm scared.

    Some conferences are made just for that purpose, like the BBS_ADS echo on Fido and similar echos on other networks. And I believe the original poster runs Wildcat!. And in order to write any scripting for Wildcat! one needs to purchase the add on compiler separately.

    it could also be done uglyly by a terminal script logging to the bbs ? with syncro making a group a mailing list isn't too complicated and from there any mailing application using smtp can do the rest.

    I am not going to get into this discussion. It's a moot point. I have not seen this happen so far on any of the echomail networks that I carry and that others carry, so I am going to end this thread right now.
