Charter of uk.games.video.xbox

(Not Moderated)

This group is for the discussion of the Microsoft Xbox and its games and peripherals. Links to UK focused web sites relating to the XBox 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 20 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.


Cross-posting in general is discouraged. 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.


Advertising is forbidden, with these exceptions:
Suppliers of goods and services relevant to the Microsoft XBox in the UK may post an invitation to visit their web site or request details. 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.

Binaries & Formatting

Encoded binaries (e.g. pictures, compressed files, etc.) are forbidden. Such material belongs on a web or FTP site to which a pointer may be posted. 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 some common newsreaders comply with this, read <http://www.usenet.org.uk/ukpost.html>.


Anyone posting contrary to this charter may be reported to their "postmaster" and/or Service Provider.
