Final Zone BBS is a Bulletin Board System focused on conversation about vintage technology, gaming, and the like with a goal of being a kind of haven away from the typical “noise” of social media – the memes, the emoji, the trends, the flood of meaningless “me too” posts, and all of the “flavor of the week” mess that makes social media almost useless to some of us.
As stated above, the board has a heavy focus on technology and gaming, but open discussion about virtually whatever is welcome. The goal is to focus on the conversation and the sharing of information and to have fun while doing it. Additionally, uploads and sharing of interesting files or programs relevant to these topics is encouraged, within reason.
Email service is also provided which is fully compatible with older machines — this can be used for many purposes, from just normal communication to file transfers from modern machines to vintage computers that cannot handle the modern web.
The BBS runs on Synchronet and is connected to DOVE-Net for those interested in networked communications. Otherwise it is purely focused on local chat. Additionally, the IRC client built in to the system will connect you to the ##bbs-squad channel on freenode, where members of this board often chat in real time. It is a small but close knit community, one that welcomes new members who share a love of tech and gaming.
The board supports multiple login methods, such as plain telnet, SSH, rlogin, and even NNTP and read-only Gopher access (depending on client used.)
Stop by and say “hi” today!

fORCE9 BBS is one of four of the last standing BBSes in the UK – a reincarnation of eVOLuTION BBS from the 90s. We run ENiGMA½ BBS software, of which RiPuk (the SysOp) is an active contributor.
fORCE9 is hooked up to FSXnet, Agoranet, Retronet, Fidonet and WWIVnet. The message networks are what made BBS’s so popular back before the internet forums that we now know. If you’re curious, jump into FSXnet’s General Chat channel and say hi!
Did you ever play Legend of the Red Dragon back in the 90s? Well you should have – it’s awesome. Lucky for you we have it online – just try it. We’re also hooked up to DoorParty, CombatNet and BlackCountryRock games servers who host dozens of inter-BBS door games.
fORCE9 has loads of custom mods, this ain’t just another stock BBS install. Come check us out via telnet or via our web client – https://bbs.force9.org.
