Charter of uk.games.video.gameboy

(Not Moderated)

This group is for the discussion of the Nintendo Game Boy range (including the Game Boy, the Game Boy Pocket, the Game Boy Color, and the Game Boy Advance, plus any future handhelds from Nintendo bearing the "Game Boy" name) and its games and peripherals.

Links to UK focused web sites, relating to the GameBoy are welcome, but should not be repeated more than once a month.

Reviews, hints, tips and cheats are welcome, however spoilers should be protected with spoiler space of between 10 and 25 lines. Long reviews or solutions (100 lines or more) should be placed on a web page, and its URL posted.

Discussions related to piracy are strongly discouraged as they tend to quickly become inflammatory and should be avoided.


No more than 1 post per organisation/person per month and post headers MUST be marked "FA: " (For Auction) or "FS: " (For Sale). Such adverts should be limited to 5 lines in length.


Cross-posting in general is discouraged. Posts relating to the connectivity between the Game Boy and other game systems is allowed within the uk.games.video.* hierarchy. Cross-posting to newsgroups outside of the uk.games.video.* hierarchy is strongly discouraged as it may invite postings which do not conform to this charter.

Binaries & Formatting

Encoded binaries (e.g. pictures, compressed files, etc.) are forbidden. Cryptographic signatures (e.g. PGP) may be used where authentication is important and should be as short as possible.

Posts must be readable as plain text. HTML, RTF and similarly formatted messages are prohibited. To see how to make your newsreader comply with this, read <http://www.usenet.org.uk/ukpost.html>.
