This article is from the Go FAQ, by Morten PAHLE email@example.com with numerous contributions by others.
The rec.games.go newsgroup is meant for discussion of any aspects of
Go which you think may interest other Go players.
rec.games.go is not moderated, so there are no fixed rules defining
what is and what is not appropriate for the newsgroup.
Just to give an indication: a survey carried out by Jan VAN DER STEEN
in March 1999 gave the following top ten subjects for posts to the NG:
1. Go related stories
2. Go analysis in depth
3. Go questions/answers (joseki, fuseki, life and death, ...)
4. Go book reviews
5. Go book announcements
6. Go pro news
7. Go game records
8. Go software announcements
9. Go amateur news
10. Go general questions (where, when, how, why, ???)
The above list is not exhaustive, but it gives an idea of the width of
In general: please post questions, but do not forget to also post
answers and opinions. Even (and especially!) if you do not understand
or agree with the other posts.
