Newsdemon Newsgroups and Usenet History Pages

By WebMaster April 19th, 2008

The Usenet Newsgroups Trivia contest appears to be a success.  We have received over twenty correct answers for each of the first two questions.  We are sure once the idea catches on, we will probably get even more people interested in joining the game and we will begin asking more difficult questions.  The competitive aspect of the game will likely increase as people try to guess what time of day we will be posting the questions, so they can be the first to answer.  We will try hard to accomodate all our global customers, not just posting questions during times where certain time zones have an advantage.  We don’t want you losing sleep over this!

With that said, we would like to point out that we have been putting in a lot of hard work to generate useful Usenet and Newsgroups related content on the site.  If you haven’t already been there, we recommend you try out our “What is Usenet” page.  There are lots of helpful pages of information regarding the usenet, newsgroups, and how it all got started.  We also try to answer some of the common questions our support department receives regarding “Usenet Rules”, etiquette, and just a general overview of how NNTP works.  Many of our usenet trivia answers can be found in these pages.  We have a whole section of our staff dedicated to creating these pages, so check back on these frequently, we are adding new pages every day.  If you think we have left something out, or you disagree with our take on a certain process or term, please do not hesitate to inform us.  We are not perfect, but we are trying!  Oh wait!  We ARE the perfect Usenet and Newsgroups Provider!  (gotta keep the bosses happy!)  :)
