Welcome to alt.tv.sliders. This FAQ is regularly posted to the
alt.tv.sliders, alt.answers, alt.binaries.sliders and
news.answers at least twice a month.
The most up-to-date version is also available at the Sci-Rev website
Many FAQs, including this one, are available at http://www.faqs.org.

This FAQ serves the purpose of introducing the newsgroup to newcomers,
points them to available FAQs, and other resources on the Internet.
Please read the available FAQ’s including this one before posting.


Subject: Important Sliders Resources

The original FAQ of alt.tv.sliders can be found at the URL
http://www.faqs.org/faqs/tv/sliders/faq/ but it is quite out-of-date and only
covers the first seasons by Fox. It has quite a bit of information about
how Sliders the tv show came to be, an interesting episode guide and list
of alternate earths in the first three seasons, with US airdates.
Thanks to Ed Hall who used to maintain it.

Another up-to-date general alt.tv.sliders FAQ which covers more seasons is maintained
by Gareth Kitchener at http://www.garethkitchener.com, this is not posted to
the newsgroups themselves. It’s worth a visit.

The “Where Can I Find It?” FAQ lists the most important resources for Sliders fans,
sometimes called “Sliders” themselves.

Subject: About the Sliders newsgroups (Creation etc)

alt.tv.sliders is the main sliders newsgroup, and most Sliders post there.
It is well propagated considering it was not created in the proper way.

The most recent newsgroup is a binary group for Sliders – alt.binaries.sliders.
It was created on the 3rd December 1997 by Steven S. Palmer after the requisite
discussion in alt.config. Other booster newgroups were sent later on – on the 25th
December 1997 and on the 22nd June 1998. Thus it is a valid newsgroup.

alt.tv.sliders.creative was newgrouped on 26th May 1995 without
the necessary discussion in alt.config, thus it was rmgrouped (deleted)
on the same day subsequently, because it was (quoting the rmgrouper) ‘created without
discussion, comment, tagline, or need, by the Mad Newgrouper (which should
be reason enough)’. On the same day onwards others have correctly
rmgrouped it for the same reasons. The fact that the proper procedure
was not followed has harmed its propagation greatly. In any case it is
almost always empty. The actual control messages can be obtained from
ftp.isc.org. In effect some news servers were carrying some posts while
others carried others, and the posts never made it to the opposite group
of news servers. The reason for this is that USENET is a directed graph,
and in practice not all points are connected properly especially with regards
to a group like alt.tv.sliders.creative (see RFC1036)

Thus: I would recommend alt.tv.sliders as being more suitable than alt.tv.sliders.creative
for posting your fanfics. Of course this is just a guideline, both are
unmoderated groups so this is not something binding. If you want to post to the creative
group on its own, do so, at the risk of your posts not appearing throughout all the
large USENET. The usenet isn’t just google groups and your local news-server. Yet another
alternative is of course to crosspost to both groups.
Should alt.tv.sliders become REGULARLY swamped one day with fanfics, then yes, there is
a valid reason to propose a creative group, in alt.config.

Other new Sliders groups will be listed here, should there be more.

Subject: Accessing Sliders newsgroups

The most traditional way is to use a newsreader program, or simply the newsreading
component of Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer or whatever web browser you use, and connect
to a news server you have access to.
Alternatively: use Google Groups (http://groups.google.com) or Newsguy (http://www.newsguy.com).
There are others but these are two of the most popular ones.

    January 20, 2012 Sedo was completely ulseess in my opinion. I had my domains listed with them and parked with them for about 3 years. Not one lead and during duration I sold 3 or perhaps 4 domains all effectively above $5000 by buyers simply contacting me directly using the email address for your domain owner. I was averaging about $3 monthly in parking. I got fed up together for their stupid control rule for listing domain names over $10, 000. I took all the particular domains away and took parking to my channel partner godaddy account. Last month they produced $63 in PPC. That is about 20 times over Sedo. I am so upset that i lost on the more money for 3 years but happy i realized and stopped receiving screwed by stickiing using sedo.

    The Cup Adirondack Golf Trophy has a pedestal feature that can be engraved both on the pedestal base and on the cup. It also comes in small, medium and large. It is mouth blown and is a very beautiful trophy, one that will surely take notice when displayed. golf stores

  11. There was a time I didn’t read fanfic. I never souhgt it out. But one day when I was at loose ends, I started reading someone’s fanfic and found myself wanting an answer to that age-old question: What’s going to happen next? And once I found myself asking that question, I knew I needed to stick around and find out the answer.Since that time, I’ve found myself reading many fanfics, and all of them have something delightful to offer. It’s fun to have a window into someone else’s thoughts about scenes they would have welcomed the chance to see, because Days never gave us enough of Steve and Kayla. Don’t get me wrong. I was glad to see what we did see, for the most part. Just SEEING Steve and Kayla again onscreen was a long-held wish of mine, and I’ll be forever grateful to Days that it came true, no matter what the shortcomings of the story turned out to be. To see Steve and Kayla discuss important issues, support and encourage each other, laugh, tease, and make mad passionate love was a wonderful thing! But there were also things we were denied: the chance to see them fall in love again, for example. That’s where fanfic comes in. It can fix that for us make it right, so to speak. I love that. So for all of you who write, thank you. Thank you for making it right. Kris
