The BBS Awareness Campaign
Welcome BBS sysops and BBS users to the St. Louis Missouri Chapter of the BBS Awareness Campaign. Over the years, users on BBSes as well as the BBSes themselves have declined. The BBS Awareness Campaign is comprised of dedicated volunteers who seek to raise public interest in BBSing and to generate publicity about BBSes in general. This is being done by going to current BBS users informing them of the problem and how they can help. Volunteers distribute flyers and other informational materials at computer meetings. Computer businesses have also teamed up to distribute materials. Lastly, the internet is being used to educate those familar with the internet of BBSes and to provide one place to post information about BBSing.
