# Faith Collapsing was a WWIV BBS that I ran back in the day. And now it's back.
A bulletin board system or BBS (also called Computer Bulletin Board Service, CBBS) is a computer server running software that allows users to connect to the system using a terminal program. Once logged in, the user can perform functions such as uploading and downloading software and data, reading news and bulletins, and exchanging messages with other users through public message boards and sometimes via direct chatting. In the early 1980s, message networks such as FidoNet sprang up to provide services such as NetMail, which is similar to email. [Wikipedia](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bulletin_board_system)
