Welcome to the official site for The Major BBS!

This site is dedicated to providing resources on the current developments relating to The Major BBS (later called Worldgroup) and to documenting and preserving the history of the software and it’s parent company Galacticomm, Inc. Considerable time and effort has been dedicated by many people over the past 20 years to keep the memory alive of what was one of the most popular pre-internet era software packages available. We thank those people for their hard work.

With this new site and supporting forums, we intent to rebuild the MBBS/WG community which has become very fractured over the years.

We encourage you to visit our forums and become involved in the community and we will provide regular updates both on the forums and the news page for this site.

The next steps for the The Major BBS will be titled “Project Phoenix” (see project page link in menu) which includes a number of changes and additions to the software alongside our plans to bring the community together.

If you have any documents, photographs, source code or other items you wish to donate to the project, please contact us via the Contact form – thanks!
