Forums

Newsgroups (old)

Newsgroups (discussion forums) are available for discussing issues related to the products from this website. On them you may post your questions, observations, ideas for new features, and reports of possible bugs.

Web-based interface to the newsgroups

Before posting for the first time, please read over the Usage Guidelines. Also, it is highly recommend that you read the essay How To Ask Questions The Smart Way to increase the chances of getting quality responses to your questions. (Note: The authors of the aforementioned essay have nothing to do with the products from this website; do NOT send them any e-mail about these products.)

Usage Guidelines

  1. When posting through a newsreader, note that the e-mail address configured in your newsreader is visible to all readers of the newsgroup. If you do not wish to share your real e-mail address, set your newsreader's e-mail address to user@domain.invalid (or something else @domain.invalid).
  2. Attachments are allowed in all of the groups, but note that articles greater than 40 KB in size are rejected because they draw too much bandwidth. If you have a large file that you would like to share with fellow newsgroup readers, you should upload it to a web site and post a link to the file. (Please don't split articles into multiple parts to circumvent the size restriction.)
    Note that certain types of attachments are automatically rejected: EXE/COM (as they may be viruses/worms) and BMP. When posting images, use PNG or GIF instead of BMP since they are compressed formats.
  3. Please do not post in HTML, unless it's absolutely necessary to demonstrate a point. HTML posts are usually just a waste of bandwidth and disk space, and not all newsreaders support HTML.

Other Notes

  • Canceling posts is not permitted for security reasons.

Usage Tips and Tricks

  • Notifications:
    • You can get notified of new messages via e-mail by subscribing to the forum.
    • By using a server or client side filter to move these notifications to a separate folder and enabling conversations on this folder you can replicate the old newsgroup look and feel and avoid cluttering your main inbox.
    • You can subscribe without using an account by sending an e-mail to innosetup+subscribe AT googlegroups.com or innosetup-test+subscribe AT googlegroups.com and replying to the confirmation by e-mail. Check your spam folder if you don't receive any confirmation.
    • Subscribing to the forum by using the web interface requires a Google account but this does NOT require a Gmail account, see https://accounts.google.com/SignUpWithoutGmail.
    • After subscribing by using the web interface you can logout of your Google account to avoid any tracking.
    • If you do not get any messages via e-mail after subscribing check your spam folder.
    • The forum hides its member list, so subscribing does not reveal your e-mail address or name to others.
  • Instead of using the web interface or subscribing, you can use the RSS and Atom feeds available above to read the forum without using an account.
  • Any messages detected as spam are moderated before being posted to the forum. All other messages are unmoderated.
  • There's only one forum for all non test posts instead of four like before.
