does anyone use BBS or other services with Starlink ? Is it possible to get a service running
with it ?
What's wrong with hosting the BBS on a VPS instead of paying an extra
fee for a public IP?

I believe all depends on the purpose of the board and the storage required. VPSes or minimum spec that won't cost fortune usually offer
very limited storage space. If all you need is message boards and games, fine, but data hoarders most likely may require some proxy to their
local NAS infrastructure by some door or other customization, I assume.

One of my voip clients uses this service to run their operations in the Bahamas. Most times with Starlink they are using cg nat.
This client was able to get a public ip to their equipment, but I do
not know what the requirements / cost factors were. Is a public ip a
part of their standard offering? I don't think so, but if you get ahold
of the right people for a price I'm sure you can get one.
But if I were trying to run a BBS on 1980s hardware, obviously, no VPS opt
unstable. But at this point, I have my BBS on a VPS, and it'd be more effort to change things again, and not really much of a point.
