The following pages are intended to act as a brief guide to the newsgroup alt.fan.pratchett.
They are not FAQs
They are not intended to replace the group's FAQs.
If you haven't read these valuable documents yet, I suggest you do so NOW!
You can come back and peruse this guide another day.
What I have tried to do, within this guide, is to give you some extra information and background that may lie beyond the scope of the FAQs. A quick glimpse at the sub-culture that is AFP. All newsgroups have their own sub-cultures, traditions and mores. AFP, by virtue of it's age, it's size, but most of all it's subscribers, may have a more complicated and established culture than most but it is understandable and relatively simple when you take the time to absorb it.
Hopefully, this guide may help you do just that and avoid some of the more obvious problems that others have encountered. If you have any comments or suggestions regarding this guide, then I'd love to hear them.
