rec.aviation.answers FAQ



The charter of rec.aviation.answers is:

***************************************************************************** * Periodic postings of information related to aviation; a "super- * * frequently-asked- questions" organized by subject. Postings will be * * repeated on a time-cycle basis. Multiple editors will volunteer for * * different subject areas. * ***************************************************************************** >>> Please note that rec.aviation.answers is not a group to which you can >>> or should attempt posting directly. Posts to rec.aviation.answers will >>> be mailed to the moderator, who may answer them by e-mail post them to >>> a different group, or ignore them completely. However, only periodic >>> postings will actually be posted to rec.aviation.answers. If you wish >>> to offer a change to one of the periodic postings, please contact the >>> author of that posting. If you would like to be the editor of a new >>> periodic posting, please contact the moderator of rec.aviation.answers, >>> geoff@peck.com. There are now many separate subgroups on rec.aviation; if the charter above doesn't match the content of the article you're posting (or you're following up), please consider one of the other groups as a more appropriate forum: aerobatics marketplace restoration announce * ifr owning rotorcraft student answers * marketplace piloting simulators ultralight hang-gliding military products soaring homebuilt misc questions * stories * [newsgroups marked by * are moderated groups] A common question is "what should I do if an article spans the charters of two or more groups?" The answer is cross-posting. If you have an article which clearly crosses the boundaries of several groups, you should post a **single** copy of the article to **all** of the relevant groups. Don't post separate copies to each group. Most modern newsreaders will display the article exactly once to the reader -- in the first group in which it is encountered and read. If you feel that the replies should be directed to a subset of the groups to which you are submitting your post, be sure to include a line of the form "Followup-to: groupname" in the header of your message. See the header of this message for an example. If you are replying to a cross-posted article and your reply is germane to only a subset of the original groups, please ensure that you check the Newsgroups: line to remove unnecessary groups. If the reply is germane to all the groups in which the article was originally posted, try to ensure that all the groups are listed in the Newsgroups: line. Some older newsreaders cause a reply to go only to the group which is currently being read. Use cross-posting sparingly. If an article "90% belongs" in one group and "10% belongs" in another, post it only to the first group.
