Michael Plautz, Steven PlautzMajorBBS, Worldgroup
"Inspired by other MajorBBS's, such as Shadowscape in Memphis and Cupids in Norfolk, we decided to start a system of our own when we bought a new house. I recall it became so popular, we had to add lines every few months causing issues with the phone company running out of copper pairs. We quickly became one of the largest BBS's on the east coast. At its peak in 1996, it was not uncommon to see over 100 users online at once. After that, due to the increasing popularity of the internet, BBS usage declined and we became more of an ISP. The whole system was ran out of one bedroom, which eventually looked like a server room, containing 66 analog modems, many PC's, a couple Portmasters & a USR Terminal Server. Much of our equipment was eventually moved to a Cox co-location facility in Norfolk as we converted to all digital lines. Its worth noting that Sybercom was one of the first ISP's in the Hampton Roads area to offer 56kbps X2 access. When Sybercom was sold to Picus at the end of 2000, we had about 4000 users with almost 400 lines. But by that point, the BBS itself didn't have much usage except as a billing system and occassional MajorMud players. It lived on though until 2001 when I shut off the power that final time." - Michael Plautz

Silent Suicide, Robin HoodAll-American BBS
"I was 13 and owned a C64, 1541 and 300 baud modem. I later added a 1581 and a 1200 baud modem (to replace the 300). I went through several aliases but the two listed were certainly the most common. I believe I also had another name for the BBS but it was Sherwood Forest the majority of the time. For most of the time I ran an illegal copy of All-American until Nick called me personally to complain and threaten me, which I subsequently shelled out (my mom did anyways) the $50 for a legit copy. I had several SysOps of which I can't recall. I'm old now but these were good times back then! Used to love playing "Empire" via the old school BBSs."

"FidoTel was originally "TeleServe" BBS (running on Searchlight Software), and I (Shannon Talley) was Zone 4 coordinator while I was operating TeleServe in the Republic of Panama for 3 years ('93-'96). For those 3 years, I provided a FidoNet gate to South American and I was the "ONLY" Internet Email providor for the entire continent for 2 years until the Internet was introduced in 1995 (we gated Internet Email through Louis Oaken at Sunshine.com in Florida). Upon moving to the US, I opened FidoTel as an Internet Only (ION) BBS in 1997. FidoTel has been running in Virginia Beach since 1997." - Shannon Talley
