Alright, so I've poked around several Telnet BBSs and I have a few thoughts:
1 - Many #BBS softwares can be confusing
2 - ANSI Art makes BBSs feel great
3 - I'm way more interested in an active and fun community than I am in a huge file collection, unless I can find a board with a LOT of information on it's files and probably still not even then.
