What is NNSEEK

NNSEEK Is NewsGroup Search engine, providing full text search functionality for tens of thousands news groups. We also act as NewsGroup to Blog converter making newsgroups presented on a web in convenient blog like format and available for aggregation using RSS feed. Finally we have our newsgroups available via free read-only newsgroup server at news.nnseek.com

How do you get my group indexed?

If you carry newsgroups which you would like to be indexed contact us and we'll setup peering with you and load your archives in our database. We welcome non-binary newsgroups in any language on any topics.

I have some newsgroups which you do not carry, are you interested in peering?

Yes. We welcome new peers assuming they provide us with new content and perform sufficient spam filtering. No spam peers please.

Are you interested in binary newsgroups?

No. We provide search functionality for textual newsgroups we're not interested in binary newsgroups at this point. Please use one of many binary newsgroup search engines instead.

I would like to integrate your search functionality in my web site. Is it possible?

Sure! Contact us

Do you support X-No-Archive

Yes we do. If you ask your messages not to be archived they will not appear in our archive or be searchable at all.

How do I make sure my posts to newsgroups are not archived?

Please set up your news writer to set "X-No-Archive: Yes" and such messages will not be loaded to our database.

I found a message which violates my privacy, copyright, or is abuse - how do I have it removed?

Please click on the () icon next to the subject of message and you'll see contact form. Fill it with problem details, please.

I found a bug, are you interested?

Absolutely. Please let us know and we'll fix it.

I've found message which seems to have wrong encoding or language detected, is it a bug?

We try hard to detect message character sets and language correctly, however it might not always be possible and our software is not perfect. Please feel free to drop us a note showing which message has an error and what would be correct values if you know. Next to the subject of each message you can see icon. This is the way to drop us a note . It is especially hard for us to make sure language detection is correct as we do not know all languages which we're detecting.

I found spam message. Can I report it?

Sure. Please click on which placed next to the message subject to report spam and inappropriate messages.

Why do you show full email addresses in raw header?

We do not show full email addresses on the web pages and in RSS feeds so if someone uses generic email hunter script they would not be able to find anything. We however do show full addresses in "Show full header" as it would be barely usable without this information. Furthermore one would need to write special script which does it, and if person is skilled enough to do it, he also can write script which retrieves original messages from news.nnseek.com via NNTP protocol.
