UK Usenet Homepages
Welcome to the homepages of UK Usenet, brought to you on behalf of the
Uk Usenet Committee. We have tried to gather together here information, both
official and otherwise, which should be of assistance to Usenet readers within
Newsgroups and Charters
- Where can I find a complete list of the Newsgroups within the
uk.* hierarchy, and where are their Charters? Answer: "here"!
There are also charters provided for each sub-hierarchy in
Newsgroup Management Documents
- Who or what decides which newsgroups officially belong in the
uk.* hierarchy, and how are changes to this made? The
following are the official documents which establish this. They are the
nearest thing to 'legal documents' that you ever get in Usenet.
- Guidelines for Group Creation within the UK
- Voting Procedures within the UK hierarchy
- The UK Usenet Committee
If you would like copies of these documents in plain text format, there is a
UNIX script undo-html which can convert (most
of) them for you (not the "Useful Information" one though).
