Sinclair Retro BBS

Postby Andrew » Wed Oct 03, 2018 8:24 pm

Do you use Sinclair Retro BBS ?
I have tried several times to create an user there and no luck ! The user is not saved, so each time I open the BBS I have to create a new user - but then it tells me that my name already exists in the database, so I have to come up with a different name (not user name, but my real name). And I am starting to run out of names :D
Once in I can see the list of files and I can view a file - but cannot flag or download anything.

Any tips on using the BBS and be able to download ?

had the same problem. The confusing thing is that the user is saved, but what looks like a user name on the login screen actually turns out to be the name you had to enter the "full REAL name" on the third page (after you answer yes to get an account created). At least that works for me now...

The Downloads are in TEST mode.

download doesn't work for me either... what does TEST mode mean here?
