If you're simply trying to find old BBSers in your area, then you might want to try Facebook. The modern social networks give you more bang for the buck, these days. If you use Facebook, then you've probably at least a couple friends who were BBSers in your area. Once you post something interesting that will tweak those friends' nostalgia bug, they'll respond and in so doing alert their two or three old BBS friends who don't happen to also be yours, etc., etc., etc.

BBSmates is still great for catching people who have had a wave of nostalgia and spend an evening searching for BBS related sites. As long as you've done your due diligence here and added good information about your BBS and others you used to use, then a couple people a year will find you. While you're waiting, you can always join in the conversations here. This is still one of the amazing repositories of original BBS history left, and I didn't mean to sound condescending towards it by suggesting Facebook. It just happens to be the best way to find those old users, now.

Good luck!
