In an effort to help educate users about Usenet and Newsgroups, we’ve created this general directory of newsgroup topics alongside thousands of pages of detailed information about specific topic newsgroups.
Clicking on any of the links below, you can drill down deep into any topic until you find the charter for the groups under that topic.
Some newsgroups regularly post a description to the group that describes its intention. These descriptions are posted by the people involved with the newsgroup creation and/or administration. If the group has such a description, it almost always includes the word “charter”, so you can quickly find it by searching the newsgroup for that word. A charter is the “set of rules and guidelines” which supposedly govern the users of that group..
If there is a charter or newsgroup that you would like to have added, please contact our Support department, and we’ll be glad to add it to our list.
