Not *every* aspect of the X-Men is on-topic in racmx. The *comics*
and their creators are, but other aspects generally belong in other
newsgroups in the rec.arts.comics.* hierarchy:

   * *ALL* auction/for-sale posts belong on rec.arts.comics.marketplace. 
     Even if you want to buy an X-Men comic, or want to know how much a 
     book is worth, ask over at .marketplace. They'll be happy to help! 
     Do *not* crosspost your sales lists. Really. Please.

   * Stories and fan-fiction should be posted to alt.comics.fan-fiction 
     (stories with copyrighted characters), or rec.arts.comics.creative 
     (stories based on original material besides copyrighted characters). 
     You can post "pointers" to your story-- just post a message on 
     racmx saying "I've posted part XYZ of my story Story Name Here 
     on alt.comics.fan-fiction."

   * Picture files should be posted to alt.binaries.pictures.cartoons or 
     alt.binaries.pictures.misc with an appropriate subject, such as
     "X-Men Storm Pic."  If it's ASCII art, post it to alt.ascii or 
     rec.arts.ascii. You can post a "pointer" telling us what you 
     posted, where you posted, and the subject header you posted under. 
     Pictures posted to the newsgroups get converted into HUGE binary 
     files. These take forever to download, and time equals money if 
     you've got a slower connection or live overseas. A binary in a 
     discussion group is sometimes 100 times larger than most posts!

   * Other newsgroups for discussions include rec.games.frp.super-heroes 
     for roleplaying games, rec.toys.action-figures for toys and figures, 
     and rec.collecting.cards.non-sports for trading cards and CCGs.
