Charter of uk.rec.collecting.coins

(Not Moderated)

This group is for the discussion of coin and banknote collecting from a UK perspective (i.e. it is both a discussion forum for UK collectors on any coin or banknote related topic, and a group for worldwide discussion about UK and Commonwealth currency). Discussion about the collecting of tokens and medals is also on-topic.


Advertising is forbidden, apart from SHORT (less than 20 lines) adverts for those selling goods and services relevant to UK coin and banknote collecting, but these adverts must not be posted more than once a month. For long information, a pointer to a website or information about how to obtain details is the correct method. The subject line for adverts should begin "ADVERT: ", and "ANNOUNCE: " for event announcements.

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>.
