How many FAQs are there?

Four basic FAQs (the Fudd FAQ, the Bunny FAQ, the Ground Rules, and this Index). There are eighteen Supplements to the FAQs, making a grand total of twenty two (!) FAQs. And no, it's not a record, though it is in the top ten.

Why so many FAQs?

Short answer: Because there's so very, very much to explain! Longer answer: Because this newsgroup has been around for so long, there are a lot of things that we've developed, and not all of them make immediate sense to a newcomer. The FAQs are there to ease the transition from the Blissfully Ignorant (tm) to the Fully Aware (tm). Plus, we've got a lot of technically savvy and extremely verbose people here who just like to write FAQs. Elmer help us.

What if I want to write my own FAQ?

Well, if you've been around for a while, and there is some aspect of alt.devilbunnies that you simply feel must be explained in greater depth, I highly recommend you get more sleep, maybe go see a movie or take a walk or something. It's a thankless job. But if after this you still want to do it, then go right ahead. It may be months, even years before your FAQ becomes official, and you may have to put up with a lot of criticism (both good and bad -- mostly bad!), so just be warned.

What information is available in the Supplements?

Here's a list of all the Supplements and a short description of what each of them contains:

Is this information available in any other format?

Yes, we also have the official alt.dbs website, maintained by Snowhare. You can access the Supplements, the archives, and lots of other stuff from there!

Thus ends the Index to the FAQs. Please direct comments and suggestions to Bill Keyes. Please direct love letters, lightly scented undergarments, and buckets full of cash to his home address.
