Making Your Own NXtel Pages

Robin Verhagen-Guest edited this page Feb 25, 2020 · 9 revisions

We've made the NXtel software and invited you to use it, and our vision for the service is a vibrant range of Next, Spectrum and other retro pages made by the community. Our hope is that there is always something different and interesting every time you connect and look around. So please, follow these steps to get started making your own pages!

1) Register an Account

The first step is to register an account at the NXtel Dashboard website. You can do this by following the instructions in this tutorial.

2) Apply for Your Page(s)

After you've registered an account and can login successfully, email info@nxtel.org from the same email address, saying that you want to be a page editor, and what you want your pages for, which is probably one or more of of the following:

  • A personal page
  • A retro service that you offer the community
  • A page for your game or Next software
  • A page for your software publishing company
  • A software blog
  • A game dev blog
  • A hardware blog
  • A gallery for your teletext art
  • Something else (please give details)

The reason we'd like to know is that, similar to Ceefax or Prestel, we keep similar pages grouped together, and we want to keep NXtel tidy and make your pages easy for other people to find!

We will process your application, and email back to confirm. Your email will contain a range of page numbers that's yours to do what you want with. If you didn't say why you wanted your pages, you'll get a personal page.
