Welcome to the news.newusers.questions home page in

Site Location

This is the official homepage of news.newusers.questions , a Usenet newsgroup whose purpose is the dissemination of questions and answers about Usenet and the Internet.

News.newusers.questions is a newsgroup in which newcomers to newsgroups and the Internet in general can ask questions and hopefully get useful answers. The newsgroup is moderated , which means that all postings are reviewed before actually being placed in the newsgroup. For you, if you post a question or answer to news.newusers.questions, this means that there will be a delay before you will see your post, as it will be sent via email by your ISP to our moderation site in South Carolina, where it will be posted to the newsgroup. Then your post has to propagate back to your ISP's news server by way of normal Usenet news feeds, a process which may take from minutes to hours.

This site contains Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs), links to many helpful sites and newsgroups, and news.newusers.questions policy and administrative documents.

The many workers of news.newusers.questions dedicated to helping you, the newuser of Usenet, have created our main web site and many mirror sites around the world. The purpose of a mirror site is to have a place near you from which you can browse in a speedy manner. While distance does not necessarily mean better speed on the Internet, it often helps in connecting to handy resources. We are also working diligently towards having these pages translated into languages other than English. At present we only can offer German language pages in addition to our English language pages but we do wish to extend this service to other languages in the future.
