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 decide to change your subscription status, be sure that 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.
This address applies to both versions of the list. If you feel
you must flame someone (other than Robotnik (g) ), please do so
in mail directly to that person.

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 are interested in the
Sonic games too (or instead), please see "Other Internet Resources"

Please do not post any of the following types of material: binary
files, commercial advertising, personal ads, or anything obscene.
If you do, you are subject to immediate removal from the list and
suspension or termination of subscription privileges. If in doubt,
please contact the list manager before posting.

There are two FAQ's for this list. You are encouraged to read
them before posting to the list. They can both be retrieved from
the ftp site in /pub/sonic/text. The Sonic Merchandise List can
be found in the same directory. See "FTP Site" below for more

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.

The lists are archived, and the current month's archive can be
retrieved from the mailing list software. Older monthly archives can
be retrieved from the ftp site. To retrieve the current month's
messages, send the command "get sonic mail.txt" (but without the
quotes) in the body of a mail message to majordomo_at_lists.mv.net.

There is a companion anonymous ftp site for this list. Just ftp to

uploads are subject to approval. You will find sounds, images, list
archives, and a variety of information. Users without regular ftp
access may use ftpmail. Please contact the list manager if you need
help locating a ftpmail server.

Other Internet Resources
rec.games.video.sega / alt.sega.genesis
    Two Usenet groups for discussion of Sonic the Hedgehog and other
    games from SEGA. Use these groups instead of this mailing list
    if you want to discuss the Sonic games, get codes/cheats, etc.
    A Usenet group for discussion of animated cartoons. Please
    read that group's FAQ before posting there.
alt.binaries.pictures.cartoons / alt.toon-pics
    Two Usenet groups for posting image files related to cartoons.
    The a.b.p.c group was intended to replace the a.t-p group.
    Some sites will carry one of them, some will carry both of
    them, and many sites don't carry either of them.
    A Usenet group for posting digitized sound files related to
    cartoons. This group is not widely propogated.
    The mailing list has a companion Web site with information,
    images, and links to Sonic-related newsgroups and other Web
