To save yourself from embarrassment and to avoid annoying us with tons of stupid questions, please do read this section carefully before entering any of the Usenet newsgroups on this forum.
Q: Are the contents of this section owned by Brawl-Hall? Who are these people?
We're not responsible for the posts in this section of the site and we're simply providing a gateway to selected Usenet newsgroups. Usenet has been around longer than the internet itself and it can be accessed using any standard desktop based newsreader or Googles archival newsreader service, however at the time of this writing the forums we offer via this gateway have only been accessible on the WWW via our portals. We're simply offering access to the best flame venues and the most heated topical newsgroups that Usenet has to offer.
Q: I'm a dumbass n00b. Can I have a detailed description of what exactly is USENET?

Q: What should I know before I post?
Don't use any BB code (eg.[ B ][I] etc), also smiley graphics and the image tag have been deactivated in all posts submitted under this section of the forums. Usenet is a text based medium and although it would look perfectly fine when viewed on Brawl-Hall your BBcode would appear screwed up for anyone viewing you posts using a standard newsreader.
The only BBcode you will be allowed to use is the quote tag. Quoted text is the only BBcode which will function properly in Usenet and it should be within [ QUOTE ][ /QUOTE ] tags. This should happen automatically when you click the "Quote" button within a post. Text within the quote tags will be converted into lines beginning with ">" when viewed by a usenet poster. You will notice that all quoted text sent via a usenet poster will be indented with ugly ">" tags, that's standard usenet annotation for quoting a message. You'll get used to it.
Q: Can I edit my post?
No, Usenet posts can not
be edited or deleted. A post can be edited within the forums under one of the Usenet sections, or deleted from the site, but the original post sent out to Usenet will not be effected.
Q: How long does it take for my posts to be delivered to Usenet after I post it?
Your post will show up on the forums automatically but it takes time for the news to propagate between news servers. Some news servers will receive your posts within seconds while others will take several hours. In general, after you submit your posts it should be viewable on a standard Usenet news reader within only a few minutes.
