If your newsadmin is particularly nasty/tyrannical, get a few people on your system (the more the better) to demand the newsgroup. ### included message : Path: newshost.gu.edu.au!aissande From: email@example.com (George Sanderson) Newsgroups: aus.tv.x-files,aus.general,aus.net.news,aus.sf,aus.tv Subject: < subject removed > Control: < control removed > Followup-To: poster Date: 20 Mar 1995 08:44:49 GMT Organization: X-Files Episode Testing Facility Lines: 29 Approved: firstname.lastname@example.org (George Sanderson) Message-ID: <email@example.com> NNTP-Posting-Host: kraken.itc.gu.edu.au aus.tv.x-files is an unmoderated newsgroup which was proposed via a RFD (posted on 13 Mar 1995 in aus.general, aus.net.news, aus.sf, aus.tv) following guidelines set out in: "FAQ: creating a newsgroup in the aus.* hierarchy", as written by firstname.lastname@example.org. It was supported by a majority of responses (via news and e-mail). For your newsgroups file: aus.tv.x-files discussion of "X-Files" and related subjects. The charter: This unmoderated newsgroup will be used for the discussion of the TV show named "X-Files" (currently shown on Channel 10, Wednesdays 8:30 pm) and related topics, such as the X-Files books. It can also be used to discuss any scientific/paranormal/politcal/military premises the show has used in any episode to point out faults/inconsistencies or praise the writers. The newsgroup is necessary since a lot of X-Files related posts appear on several groups: aus.sf, aus.tv, and to a small extent on aus.sf.star-trek. The traffic is large enough to warrant a seperate group. It is also necessary since similar groups (alt.tv.x-files, rec.arts.tv, rec.arts.sf.tv) discuss episodes screened in the USA, which are ahead of Australian TV by approximately 3.5 months. Crossposting between aus.tv.x-files, aus.sf and aus.tv is discouraged.
The above graph is a moving average of the number of articles posted into aus.tv.x-files per day. The top of the green area counts the number of articles posted in the last 24 hours, whereas the blue line counts the number of articles posted in the last 2 hours, times 12.
