Welcome to the only mailing lists that are Way Past Cool: Sonic
the Hedgehog (tm) ! In these mailing lists, we discuss the comic
books and cartoons based on SEGA (tm)'s Sonic the Hedgehog, and
help free Mobius from the evil Dr. Robotnik.

There are two versions of the Sonic mailing list. One is "live"
and the other is a digest. You may change your subscription
status from "live" to digest or from digest to "live" at any time.
If you do decide to change your subscription status, be sure you
unsubscribe from the version you don't want anymore, or you will
be subscribed to both versions and receive all messages twice.
See "How to Change Your Status" below for more information.

To post to the list, send your messages to sonic_at_lists.mv.net if
you subscribe to the "live" version or to sonic-digest_at_lists.mv.net
if you subscribe to the digest version.

There are two FAQ's for this list. You are encouraged to read
them before posting to the list. They can be retrieved through
the mailing list software as faq-dd and faq-jf. See "How to
Retrieve Files" below.

The lists are archived, and the archive can be retrieved through
the mailing list software as a file, just like the FAQ's. The
filename to request is mail.txt. Older monthly archives and some
other Sonic-related files can be retrieved too.

You may post information and opinions related to the characters
and stories in the Sonic comics and cartoons. Fan-written stories
are welcome too. You may post messages on the Sonic games to
the extent that the focus is on the Sonic/Mobius story and/or
characters, and not on the games themselves. Asking why Knuckles
rarely appears in the comics is on-topic, but asking how to become
"Super Sonic" in Sonic 3 is not.

If you feel you must flame someone (other than Robotnik (g) ), please
do so in mail directly to that person. And as on most areas of the
'net, legally obscene material and posts of a commercial nature are not
welcome here.

Not everyone has read all of the comic books and seen all of the
cartoons. It's fine if you want to discuss major plot points or
a story ending, but please place a warning in your message so that
you won't spoil the story for those who haven't read/viewed it yet.

How To Retrieve Files
To get a list of files you can retrieve, send this text to
    index sonic
Once you have the filename of the file(s) you want, retrieve them
by sending this text to majordomo_at_lists.mv.net:
    get sonic file1.txt
    get sonic file2.txt
Use one "get" line for each file you want.

How To Change Your Status

    subscribe sonic-digest

| Many thanks to Ratman (Paul Hurley) for giving us a virtual Knothole. |
| The list manager is Erich Schulman who can be reached by e-mail at |
| acme_at_use.usit.net. |

There is a companion anonymous ftp site for this list. Just ftp to
ftp.mv.com and go to /pub/users/rat/sonic. Upload files to
/pub/users/rat/incoming. Sounds and images are welcome. All uploads
are subject to approval. Older list archives in compressed form are
available here too.

Other Internet Resources
    A Usenet group for discussion of Sonic the Hedgehog and other
    games from SEGA. Use r.g.v.s instead of this mailing list if
    you want to discuss the Sonic games, get codes/cheats, etc.
    Another Usenet group for discussing SEGA's games.
    A Usenet group for discussion of animated cartoons. Please
    read that group's FAQ before posting there.
    A Usenet group for posting image files related to cartoons.
    This group is not widely propogated.
    This Usenet group was supposed to be replaced by a.b.p.c but
    some sites continue to carry a.t.p too/instead.
    A Usenet group for posting digitized sound files related to
    cartoons. This group is not widely propogated.
    Try looking up the word "hedgehog" and a *few* Sonic files
    should turn up. Most of what you'll find will not be at all
    related to Sonic.
    Sega has a home page (http://www.segaoa.com/), but you won't
    find much information there (but do have your credit card
    ready (g)). Another home page where you can find Sonic images
    is http://www.ysu.edu/~ptighe/sonic.html.

Juice time, outta here!
