    When I upload a CTRL-A formatted ANSI
    into a message, it gets nicely
    converted to PETSCII for the caller. Is
    there a way to upload PETSCII, though?

    You can upload PETSCII (.seq files) to file directories or general text areas and they'll be converted to ANSI for ANSI callers. I don't have a method to do the same for a PETSCII message. You could submit a feature request (issue) on gitlab.synchro.net and I may do that some day.

    Oh cool, going to try that now.

    It wouldn't even necessarily have to do any converting :). But I suppose why not while we're at it. It would be cool if it could get posted and just display as is. Maybe it does and I'm just trying it wrong. Definitely will submit that feature request, thanks.

    Well ANSI users wouldn't get a good experience viewing un-converted PETSCII. And since we have the logic already in SBBS, it'd make sense to do that conversion.
