The Fidonet MUFFIN Echo Rules
Updated 27 January 2019
Moderator : Sean Dennis (1:18/200)
MUFFIN is for the support and discussion of the Maximus BBS software in all versions. Discussion concerning third-party software utilities for Maximus
is allowed if the software doesn't have its own echo. Squish discussion
is allowed though it is recommened to take that to the TUB echo.
This echo is meant for sysops running Maximus BBS software.
By your participation in this echo, you agree to the following rules:
* Real names are required to be used in this echo. No aliases. If
your BBS software will not allow you to toggle between real name and
alias in the message header, sign your message with your real name.
* All messages must be in English. You may post a message in your native
language as long as an English translation accompanies the native
post in the same message. I recommend using Google Translate
) if you are not a native English speaker.
* No blatently off-topic posts such as BBS ads, "test" messages,
* Any traffic concerning Fidonet matters, such as alleged "echo
hijackings", complaints about other echoes and their moderators,
or any traffic construed as such by the moderators is OFF-TOPIC.
Absolutely none of that is allowed in this echo and violators will
be dealt with swiftly. Please take such discussion to netmail or
another appropriate echo.
* Be civil and have a sense of humor. BBSing is a very personal hobby
where people may run their system differently than yours. Unless their
system is harming yours, just agree to disagree if the discussion gets
heated which leads to this: please no flaming! I understand disagreements
and misunderstandings but if you decide you want to get personal, please
take it elsewhere.
* Please don't gate this echo to USENET, a mailing list, another BBS
mail network, an online Fidonet mail archive, or anything else
without the moderator's express and written permission. This is
a Fidonet echo and needs to stay in Fidonet.
* This echo does not recognize any local or regional echomail policies
such as EP1. This echo originates in Zone 1 and follows Zone 1 policies
concerning the "echolist".
* The moderator has the final say in dealing with problems in the echo.
If you have something to say about a moderator's action, please
contact them via netmail (preferred) or email. Discussion of moderator
actions in the echo is strictly off-topic.
* This is a living document and will be adjusted as needed.
* This document will be posted on the 1st and 15th of each month and
* Please don't hesitate to contact the moderators with any questions.
Thank you for your participation in MUFFIN!
