I would like to take a moment and welcome you to The Arcade Bulletin Board System. The Arcade BBS was started in 1988 on a 300bps modem and running WWIV 4.05 software. The Arcade underwent many various software and hardware upgrades until finally going off line in 1999. The Arcade would remain asleep until 2015 when it was brought back online via telnet.
The Arcade and this website is a recap of fond pre-internet memories of a time that was very impressionable and what eventually led me to my career in IT. My hope is to reconnect with many of the old users and SysOp’s from the St. Louis Missouri region and keep the nostalgic memory of WWIV and bbsing in general going.
