BBS Efforts

From Portal 2 ARG Wiki - Valve ARG Network

Jump to: navigation, search
Warning Do not connect to the BBS unless asked to. If you think you can connect, contact LordNed in the IRC.
Do not try and connect on your own, or try to call it with a normal phone. You will only tie up the line and hamper efforts.

Some of us think that Valve might be reusing the old Portal 1 ARG BBS.

Update The user Truck has connected to the BBS and have found that it has either been shut down or moved to a new number, if a phone number is found later in the arg, it may be the new BBS number.

I just tried connecting to +14258225251 and it timed out. Assuming I don't have the wrong number, if there's something on the other end it isn't picking up. - Netshroud 02:05, 3 April 2011 (CDT)
