This newsgroup is the spot on USENET for all discussion related to DOOM editing. If you have any non editor specific questions, are interested in hacking, or want to know anything about editing in general, go here first.
The announce newsgroup is dedicated to making announcements related to DOOM. This newsgroup is moderated, so off topic articles are not posted. Examples of what is posted here: DeeP update announcements, releases of PWADs, announcements pertaining to editing clubs, and announcement about other editors.
If you are stuck in a certain level and want to ask somebody how to get out, this is the place to go. This newsgroup is dedicated to helping new users establish modem games. The discussion here varies widely. Some of the more common topics include how to set up a modem DOOM game (i.e. KALI, Sersetup) or how to fix sound/video problems. Messages related to editing are generally not answered.
The misc newsgroup has discussions that are as varied as the help newsgroup. Usually the main topic in this newsgroup is playing DOOM, but don't take my word for it.
Are you one of those immature DOOM players who is constantly compelled to write everyone you know and say "I'm going to kick your ass!"? If so, then you just might find this newsgroup appealing. As the name implies, most people in this newsgroup talk about playing DOOM. Sometimes the topics are interesting, like one recent discussion relating to the best circle strafe method. Other times, ummm, see my above example. Still the best resource for hard core DOOM players on USENET.
