Charter of uk.rec.competitions

(Not Moderated)

This newsgroup is for the announcement and discussion of competitions open to UK residents. The group enables readers to share information on new competitions/prize draws, discuss tie-breakers and help others with the answers to those tricky puzzles and questions.

The advertisement and discussion of competitions for which a fee is chargeable is not allowed. Discussions relating to the National Lottery for example, should be directed to a more appropriate group such as rec.gambling.lottery.


Short (less than 20 line) announcements of events relevant to readers are permitted; blatant off-topic or commercial advertising is not.


Binaries are not permitted in this group, however references to FTPable material and Web URL's are welcomed.
