• BBS List

    From JohnBWilloughby to all on Thursday, April 08, 2021 09:20:09
    I wanted to update the listing for the BBS to change the telnet address from tempestfury.d2g.com to tfbbs.d2g.com,
    Now in the listing its says 2021 under the Since column, before I made the change it said 2001.

    Is that because I changed the terminal services address to the new address ? of can I set the Since back to 2001 ?

    No, you can set the "since" date to whatever date you like.

    Not sure if this is related. Yesterday when I logged on to my board, it listed the users online that I could send Telegrams/Private messages to, and I saw myself on my bbs. Today when I logon I don see myself on the list

    Please describe the issue with more detail:
    Are you referring to the web server or the terminal server?
    If you're referring to the terminal server, what commands are you typing exactly to list users that you can send telegrams/private messages to?

    I added an external program to SCFG->External Programs->Online Programs->Main ->Available Online Programs
    called Synchronet IM Command line is ?sbbsimsg -l , execute on event -> Logon .

    Once I had it setup, i wait a day, since its based of the BBS List ( correct ?) and the follwing day, when I logged in to the BBS, I say the name of my bbs, with my name, and everyone else that was currently logged on to the different bbs's. Now two days later, I dont see my name when I logon in that list.

    That's different. Normally, it's just the Inter-BBS option from the privatemsg module (Ctrl-P global hot key) or the 'I' command from the Chat menu.

    You should not see your own BBS (or its users) in the inter-bbs list.

    I set it up this way as a test to see how I like it, and show uses who logon via Telnet who is online. Its just me testing out the functionality. It may stay, it may go.

    The Ctrl-P at the Main menu does work, and you can select I for InterBBS.

    You should not see your own BBS (or its users) in the inter-bbs list.

    For some strange reason I thought I saw it while connected to my board, but I could have been on a different board. And checking on a different board, I do see that I am listed as being online on my board.

    So this brings up a related question,

    If someone sends you a telegram, while signed in via the web, You see the popup that says <username> send you a telegram, and the message, but no way to respond ? And after you click OK, that telegram is gone ?

    That's right. It's just a notification and there is no reply option right now.

    You can send a message to someone on the BBS by clicking on their name in the Who's Online list, if you want.

    There is currently no support for inter-BBS messages on the web.

    got it. is the reply option something that is on the road map ?

    I remember seeing that, and forgot about it until seeing your response.

    Is there possibly support in the future to show uses currently online on different bbs, as a menu item ?

    Thanks for taking time to answer all my questions.

    I can look at adding it in at some point, sure.

    I used to have them show up in the Who's Online list, in a separate section beneath the list of local users, but it was problematic. I plan on adding the feature back in at some point, but doing it properly will take a bit of work.

    I have a webv4 Telegram module that is available for download from my webv4 Mods page (unfortunately one has to login to get it and logging in is currently broken :(

    Is there possibly support in the future to show uses currently online on different bbs, as a menu item ?


    I also have an active users mod for webv4 that contains a link to my telegram mod to send a user a telegram. It can be dl'd from my web ui when the login is corrected.

    Ideally anything that pulls an active user list from other BBSs would use some caching or at least not work for guest users. The biggest problem with my old one was the amount of traffic it generated for other boards, which caused a lot of complaints.

    What I'd really like to do would be to make a JSON-DB service that uses the inter-BBS active users / messaging stuff and manages a local record of who's online. That will reduce traffic by quite a lot.

    I think it might be a nice enhancement.

    I look forward to testing it out :)
