I know that getting the fanedits have been a problem in the past at least with newsgroups, nobody likes using a.b.dvd. So I did some looking and have somewhat figured out what is need to make a new newsgroup at least in the ‘alt’ part. The main thing that needs to be done is some major discussion in different newsgroups about, in our case, fanedits having their own group. So…
If we really want a newgroup just for fanedits, we need to start topics in different newgroups about this. When the ‘Gods’ of newsgroups look at what is worth making into its own group they look at numbers! They want to see around 900 posts made in 3 months time or about 10 posts per day average over 3 months time, about this subject. So we need to start working at this. I know this seems like alot but we can do it if we really want this, and if we post 900 meaningful posts in a month well that would make the 900 in 3 months if averaged with the last 2 months.
I have no problem making up the documents and supplying the newgroup ‘Gods’ with the information they want but I need everyones help to get the posts that we need.
There are other ways to start groups but this is the best most professional way to go about it.
Any thoughts our input?
