    I've joined a couple of interesting networks recently, they're worth taking a look at if you haven't seen them yet.

    AGORANET:

    AgoraNet has been here the longest, it's the home of ACiD Productions and League 46 Inter-BBS gaming.

    FSXNET:

    fsxNet is a fun, simple and experimental network established in late 2015.

    fsxNet is not a perscriptive network. e[X]perimentation is at heart of its name and members are actively encouraged to be creative in their use of the network. Only a handfull of message areas and file bases are used - setup is quick and [S]imple.

    Technologies covered by the network include (but are not limited to) BBSing, ANSI art, Amateur (HAM) Radio, Retro / Vintage Computers & Gaming, FTN communications, network protocols & topologies, encryption methods, contemporary computers (e.g. Raspberry Pi), computer coding and more.

    ARAKNET:

    ARAKNet is the newest net (I just finished adding it tonight!) In their words:

    ArakNet is looking to bridge that gap of the elite BBSes of yesteryear by filling the void of what once was. It's impossible to turn back time but we can adapt to change and promote innovation and excitement through the evolution of BBSes and not lead it to its demise.

    This network will be the home of BBS software programmers, door game authors, custom mod creators, ANSI/ASCII artists, and the interactive giants of the demo scene. It will begin as as an invite-only network as we build community and will in the future open the gates for everyone to join. ArakNet will spin its magical webs to continue connecting to other systems across the globe.
