Charter of uk.local.cornwall

(Not Moderated)

The newsgroup is intended for discussion relating to the county of Cornwall, England. A dedicated forum within the uk.local.* hierarchy easily recognisable for discussion of information, news, views and other such topics related to Cornwall.

Contributions are welcome from all provided the contribution bears some relevance to Cornwall or her people. (eg. people who live, work or study in the county, or have an interest in the county.)


Advertising is strictly forbidden, with these exceptions:
Suppliers of goods and services relevant to Cornwall may post an invitation to visit their web site or request details. It should be of four lines or fewer and not posted more than once every 3 months. The subject line should begin "ADVERT: ", except for vacancy adverts, when it should begin "JOB: ".
All other advertising may be posted in the specially created advert group uk.local.southwest.adverts.


Messages posted to this newsgroup must not be cross-posted to more than a TOTAL of four uk.local.* newsgroups; these may be geographically adjacent or overlapping, or connected by the subject of the post (e.g. "a proposed house move from Thurso to Truro").

Note that the advertising of widely-available goods or services is *not* relevant in this context, and that most uk.local.* groups have restrictions on advertising, or prohibit it. Cross-posted adverts, where allowed, must meet the requirements of the charters of *all* groups involved.

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 plaintext. 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>.


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