Charter of uk.games.video.misc

(Not Moderated)

Group for the UK-centric discussion of all aspects of the video-game industry, except those for which existing newsgroups exist in the uk.games.video.* hierarchy.

Although the focus will primarily be the discussion of current gaming technology (including - but obviously not limited to - PCs, N64s, Saturns, Amigas), discussion of older systems are more than welcome.

Discussion of the publications available for the video-games user (whether printed or electronically published) is allowed.

Announcements of websites containing information relevant to the newsgroup (eg. tip sites, review sites, etc) are welcome.

Hints and tips would also be welcome, but should be indicated either in the subject line, or by adding a warning and sufficient "spoiler space" within the post.

"MCIBTYC" (My Computer/Console Is Better Than Your Computer/Console) flamewars are dull, pointless and therefore to be avoided at all costs.

The advertising of items for sale (whether as a commercial company, or as an individual) is banned. There is a uk.adverts.* hierarchy for that kind of thing.

Posting of information relating to piracy or the illegal use of video games technology (mod-chips, etc) is banned.

Basic netiquette should be adhered to at all times. In short: Binary posting is banned, and attachments in other formats (eg. HTML, VCF, etc) are frowned-upon heavily, as are excessively long signature files.
