The Citadel 64 Startup Screen.
K2NE Software claims in their docs to be a source of a myriad of products, though Citadel 64 and Citadel 128 are their only confirmed products.
Waiting for call screen.
Care was taken to make sure that everything can be done from a single menu, which is basically a message area menu that allows you to log off.
I suppose I shouldn't be so hard on a message-bases only system. After all, message bases are the best part of a BBS. However, if more work had been done in the message bases themselves so that at least THAT area shined, this program might be salvagable. However, lacking support for Commodore graphics, lacking message threading or message structure of any kind, and lacking scanning and other standard features makes it tough to say many nice things.
Moreover, the transfers area, which appears to be integrated somehow, is decidedly not supported by the configuration tools. It appears to have been either a half implemented, or an unimplemented feature of the system.
