CHARTER: rec.games.computer.stars

This newsgroup is a forum for the discussion of the strategy game
"Stars!", written by Jeff Johnson and Jeff McBride.  This newsgroup
will not be moderated. Acceptable postings to this newsgroup include:

     * Announcements of new "Stars!" games requiring players, or
       existing "Stars!" games in which replacement players are needed

       As a courtesy to readers, these announcements should begin with
       the key word GAME: at the beginning of the subject line. The
       key word REPLACE: should be used if replacements for an
       existing game are sought.

       Games in which players are required to pay a fee for
       participating should clearly indicate this in the game
       announcement. Postings that do not announce the beginning of a
       new pay-for-play game but instead advertise the pay-for-play
       service itself fall under the category of 'commercial services'
       and will be governed by the rules regarding advertisements
       below.

     * Strategies for playing the game

     * Tips and questions regarding the game mechanics

     * Suggestions for future versions of the game

     * Information on new releases, upgrades, patches, etc. from the
       game authors

     * Direct comparison of "Stars!" and other strategy games in the
       same genre

     * Announcements of commercial or shareware programs or services
       that are directly related to "Stars!"

       These postings must be concise and informative, must contain a
       minimum of hype, and no more than 1 advertisement per month for
       a single product or service is allowed.

       All advertisements should be marked with the key word AD: or
       ADVERTISEMENT: at the beginning of the subject line.

     * Announcements of free programs or services directly related to
       "Stars!"

       These postings are not considered advertisements but should
       nonetheless be governed by common sense and restraint in the
       nature of the announcement and the frequency of posting.

       It is suggested that such posts be marked with the key word
       ANNOUNCE: at the beginning of the subject line.

All forms of advertisement other than those covered above are
considered UNACCEPTABLE for posting to this newsgroup.

Postings containing binary files (regardless of encoding) are
UNACCEPTABLE for this newsgroup.  Rather than posting a binary
file, the binary file should be placed at an appropriate FTP site
(such as the /pub directory of beast.webmap.com, which is the
main "Stars!" FTP server) or posted to alt.binaries.games or 
alt.binaries.misc and a pointer to the binary file's location posted 
to this newsgroup.
