Established at a time when there were few CPC websites and no discussion boards, the group enabled CPC news to be broadcast instantly (such as [http://groups.google.com/group/comp.sys.amstrad.8bit/msg/a8df8e41e94fa545 the closure of Amstrad Action]) and even, in a modest way, played its own part in CPC affairs in later years (such as [http://groups.google.com/group/comp.sys.amstrad.8bit/browse_thread/thread/4f963b9173039b49/de01c21181ab4f04?tvc=2&q=lets+get+it+together+group%3Acomp.sys.amstrad.8bit the resignation of Paul Dwerryhouse from WACCI]).
Though traffic The newsgroup is reduced from its now, in 2018, almost inactive, in it's heydayit had many messages per day, the newsgroup is still active. Traffic but now traffic can go up and down in an unpredictable manner; sometimes days weeks will pass by without a single message, sometimes there'll will be several messages within the same day. So don't ever assume it's dead - it's merely resting.
A spin-off IRC channel, #csa8, was briefly in existence.
