Thanks folks, I'll add this to the Newbie Archwiz FAQ, but can you clarify some

@examine $news indicates that this command is:

        @addnews (anything) to $news

where anything is really # of message on *news. Nevertheless on my meeting moo
I have to issue the command as:

        @addnews [# of message] to #61

$news on my moo is #61. Using *news doesn't work either. Is it supposed to
work with $news (or, perhaps *news) and I have something set up wrong?

>5) If a message is old and you want it removed, do: @rmnews [# of

Same diff here as with @addnews above.
