MST3K FAQ -- The Facts About This FAQ.

ABOUT THIS FAQ


Q: What's the dreary legal disclaimer you have to put on things like this?
A: We think it would go something ... like this: Mystery Science Theater 3000 and its characters, situations and trademarks are owned by Satellite of Love LLC. This document is intended for informational and entertainment purposes only. Please, no wagering. No infringement of any and all copyrights or trademarks held or owned by anyone is intended or should be inferred, already.

Q: I bet you have a big ol' honkin' disclaimer too.
A: You bet. Big ol' honkin' disclaimer: The maintainers of this FAQ make no warranty that the information contained herein is 100-percent accurate, but, after all these years, we're confident that it's pretty darned close. Your mileage may vary.

Q: Who is responsible for this FAQ?
A: This FAQ was created, compiled and edited by Chris Cornell and Brian Henry.

Q: What's the history of MST3K FAQs?
A: The earliest MST3K FAQ that anybody knows about was compiled and edited by Rich Kulawiec, for an offline newsletter he distributed. When the first MST3K newsgroups were created in 1992, subscribers to Rich's newsletter posted his FAQ there, where it was then greatly expanded, and subsequently maintained by Lisa Jenkins. Later, custody of the FAQ was handed over to Matthew Duhan. Even later, Matt handed the whole deal over to us. All previous versions of this FAQ are superseded by this one.

Q: I have comments, corrections, suggestions, additions and/or criticisms. Where do I send it/them.
A: Keep them to yourself. Just kidding. Any and all comments, corrections, suggestions, additions and/or criticisms are welcome and should be sent to comments@mst3kinfo.com.

Q: What if I want to publish this FAQ? What should I do?
A: Don't. As with any material on this web site, distribution or duplication of this information (or Major League Baseball, for that matter), without our express permission, is prohibited. Please email Chris Cornell [MSampo@aol.com] and/or Brian Henry [Erhardt4@aol.com]. Thanks.

Q: The FAQ is awesome. Can I post it on my website?
A: Um...thanks, but we'd rather you didn't. The problem is that the FAQ is constantly being updated, and when other people begin posting the FAQ in different places, you start to see differing versions all over the web. We'd be delighted if you'd link to our site, but we'd rather you didn't copy the FAQ. Thank you for understanding.

Q: Is there anybody you'd like to thank?
