There are a ton of specialty newsgroups available on Usenet. Ranging from Animals to Video Games, there is a discussion group for practically anything. How do these newsgroups get created? How does it get displayed?
A detailed statement is explained to USENET provider on what the group will be about and the general guidelines for the newsgroup members. After it’s submitted and approved, they may create an FAQ regularly. Both the FAQ and Charter would be posted to the newsgroup after creation so that new members (and old) are able to know about what the group is about.
NewsDemon has long kept a Charter Archive of the many newsgroups. Here, you can select by directory and find what you’re looking for by category and drilling down from there.
