Q 3.0 What about these newsgroups then?

A.  There are two main newsgroups for UK viewers of Babylon 5, with
    (mostly) different members.  Both have rules against crossposts and
    spoilers for episodes not yet broadcast by Channel 4 or S4C.

    uk.media.tv.sf.babylon5
      This is where I mostly hang out, the .social newsgroup is a good
      place to find out how and where to meet other UK fans.
      (Particularly gatherings in London and Manchester.)

      For advice on what you can post etc there is a FAQ for the group.
      It is a little out of date at the moment but being revised.
      Either email to faq@arrakis.nu or visit:
      <URL:http://www.ge.ucl.ac.uk/~jmorley/B5-FAQ/B5-FAQ-INDEX.html>

      *** Don't forget, posts about Crusade on Sky should be made to the
      *** .misc group.

      The charter for the group is at:
      <URL:http://www.usenet.org.uk/uk.media.tv.sf.babylon5.html>

    alt.babylon5.uk
      This is similar but with a different mix of people, and therefore
      different conversations.  Posters there have weekly IRC sessions
      which you may enjoy.

      For details what you can do here look out for the "Posting Rules"
      either on the newsgroup or at the group's website:
      <URL:http://come.to/alt.babylon5.uk>

      *** Posts about Crusade need 30 lines of spoiler space.

    Visit one or both to keep up to date with your favourite tv show!

Q 3.1 Can I post spoilers here about upcoming episodes of B5 or Crusade?

A.  No.  No.  And thrice no.  (With apologies to Frankie Howerd.)

    Episodes not broadcast Channel 4 must not be discussed.  Also episodes
    recently shown on Channel 4 may not have been shown on S4C, and so
    need special consideration.  See the relevant FAQ or Posting Rules
    described above for more details of what is acceptable.
