• Competition

    From Daryl Stout@HURRICAN/THUNDER to All on Tue Nov 8 15:45:00 2016
    I was curious who else participates in the Sunrise Doors
    InterBBS competition.

    Right now, I personally am playing Dominoes, High Rollers
    Dice, Box Dice, Monte Carlo Solitaire, Word Stairway, Keno,
    Rescue, Groan Dice, Hi-Lo, Blackjack, and Cribbage Squares.

    That reminds me...I think Al Lawrence still has a special
    deal until the end of the year to get a bit of a discount
    on things like the InterBBS competition yearly fee. Since
    I personally registered most all of his doors (before they
    became donationware), I need to use that to extend my BBS's
    IBBS competition for another year.

    Hi Daryl,

    Not sure of how many people or names of other BBS' involved in the IBBS competition. One of these days I might want to try it out.

    On another note, Last year Al included me into a support e-mail. I like to help troubleshoot and figure stuff out in my spare time with BBS. So I figured that making this echo and somehow getting Al involved would be a great thing.

    Al and myself are connected via NNTP, but it is open and gated with the GatorNet: Sunrise Doors support as you can see in my origin... I am posting from my BBS :)

    Feel free to ask Al any questions about specials and or member ships. I am sure he will get to them in time.

    Regards,
    Kris

    Kris,

    Not sure of how many people or names of other BBS' involved in the IBBS competition. One of these days I might want to try it out.

    Right now, it's $25 a year, but that averages out to a little over $1 a
    door (there are 24 of the 16-bit doors, and I have all of them) per year.

    On another note, Last year Al included me into a support e-mail. I like to help troubleshoot and figure stuff out in my spare time with BBS. So
    I figured that making this echo and somehow getting Al involved would
    be a great thing.

    I have found some errors in documentation files...but when you are working
    on something yourself, it's easy to make mistakes. You really need another person to proofread what you typed.

    Al and myself are connected via NNTP, but it is open and gated with the GatorNet: Sunrise Doors support as you can see in my origin... I am posting from my BBS :)

    Cool.

    Feel free to ask Al any questions about specials and or member ships. I am sure he will get to them in time.

    I do want to make a correction in an earlier post that I made...and also apologize for the error.

    I had misread an email from Al about a special discount...I thought it was good until the end of the year, but it expired at the end of October. I must have been tired when I read the message...my apologies for the error.

    However, I likely will renew my competition deal, but I don't know if you
    can renew that for more than one year at a time or not.

    As a side note, I have all of the 16-bit doors, Home Edition doors, and Wildcat 5 32-bit doors of his software on my system for download. You can
    just go to the website (wx1der.dyndns.org), choose Files, look for BBS Doorgames, and look for Sunrise Doors. I even have a logo on the website
    with a link that the BBS is part of the InterBBS competition.
