Welcome to alt.culture.malta. This FAQ is regularly posted to the alt.culture.malta,alt.answers and news.answers newsgroups, and the most up-to-date version is also available at the alt.culture.malta web site (http://cwebdesign.com/altmalta/). The Maltese newsgroup alt.culture.malta was set up for the discussion of anything related to Malta, or the Maltese islands. It may be used by web page creators as a springboard for URL announcements of Maltese websites. Created on the 25th October 1996, this is now another good place where to submit a message describing your new Maltese web page. The newsgroup is unmoderated. The alt.culture.malta web page can be found at the URL http://cwebdesign.com/altmalta/. To get more information on Maltese WWW sites, other resources such as mailing lists, and more general information on Malta, you might visit Malta Network Resources (http://www.cis.um.edu.mt/links/mnr/) which is delegated from Virtual Tourist. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I cannot connect to alt.culture.malta. HELP! The list of newsgroups carried by your service provider (ISP) is generally the responsibility of the news administrator. Since this group is relatively quite new, not all news administrators will have added it to their lists. If the newsgroup is still unavailable at your site, please contact your news administrator (e.g. by sending an email message) and request that it be carried. Regular booster messages will be sent out to help the group get the widest possible coverage. If you have recurring problems please send email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Temporarily you might access it using a web site which allows access to alt.culture.malta - this is http://www.zippo.com. Why has alt.culture.malta been set up? What is its purpose? It has been set up as a new Maltese newsgroup since there is a demand for a newsgroup where to discuss Maltese topics. Anything related to Malta, Gozo, the Maltese Islands, Maltese culture, tradition, history, future, whatever is Malta-related. Even discussion of Maltese WWW sites and announcements of Maltese Web resources physically located in Malta and abroad may take place on the newsgroup. alt.malta is technically "defunct" and still exists only in a few isolated pocket locations, it does not propagate any more (if at all) since most sites have now dropped it replacing it with alt.culture.malta.
