              alt.alien.visitors Frequently Asked Questions
              This FAQ was last updated: 15th November 1994
			  This is part 1 of 7
			  
       It currently takes up 150k (around 85 printed pages) in all
                       Line width is about 75 char.
                            
The FAQ and shortened version, the MINI-FAQ were originally written for the 
Usenet Newsgroup alt.alien.visitors.  More recently the FAQ and some of the 
a.a.v. messages have been cross posted to other networks. The FAQ will try to 
reflect this more universal distribution, but for now it is essentially the 
FAQ produced for alt.alien.vistors.  The full FAQ is a very large multi-part 
file which is posted infrequently, but is available by WWW and ftp (see 
below).  The MINI-FAQ is designed to be a single file which can be posted 
more regularly but only contains basic information.  

The FAQ is the result of contributions from many people.  The views expressed
are varied and unless otherwise stated should not be taken to represent the
opinions of any one contributor, the editor or the contributors as a whole.
Neither, unless otherwise stated, should the views expressed be taken as in
anyway representing any organisation or employer with whom the contributors
are connected.  As the FAQ is the work of many people, speaking many different
flavours of english, some of the spelling and grammer might be novel to some
readers, remember the main function of the FAQ is communication not a lesson
in english.  The current editor is Steve Gamble (see FAQ updates for
how to contact him.) All comments by him are indicated by the square brackets[].

Charles McGrew has made the full FAQ together with other UFO related 
material available by ftp.  Here are the details:

ftp.rutgers.edu (128.6.26.25)

	many ufo-related documents (some of dubious reputability) in
	pub/ufo.  See README's in the directory (and subdirectories).
	Files are a little disorganized right now, since the document-
	collection process is still going on, but if you're looking
	for that "special file", this is a good place to check out.
	More recent versions of the FAQ can be found here as
	a.a.v-faq.  All files except the README's are in unix-compressed
	format, so please be sure to use 'binary' transfer mode.
	Anonymous ftp enabled.
                       

World Wide Web Access

	Rene' Mueller has kindly made both the full FAQ and the mini-FAQ
	available by WWW on Spirit.  The WWW address is
	
		http://zeta.cs.adfa.oz.au/Spirit.html

The file is split into 7 parts for posting to a.a.v.  These are shown in the
contents list below.

CRAM: The Cyberspatial Reality Advancement Movement

In an effort to bring valuable information to the masses, and as a
service to motivated information compilers, a member of CRAM can help
others unfamiliar with Usenet `publish' their documents for
widespread dissemination via the FAQ structure, and act as a
`sponsor' knowledgable in the submissions process. This document is
being distributed under this arrangement.

We have found these compilations tend to appear on various mailing
lists and are valuable enough to deserve wider distribution. If you
know of an existing compilation of Internet information that is not
currently a FAQ, please contact us and we may `sponsor' it. The
benefits to the author include:

- use of the existing FAQ infrastructure for distribution:
  - automated mail server service
  - FTP archival
  - automated posting

- a far wider audience that can improve the quality, accuracy, and 
  coverage of the document enormously through email feedback

- potential professional inquiries for the use of your document in 
  other settings, such as newsletters, books, etc.

- with us as your sponsor, we will also take care of the 
  technicalities in the proper format of the posted version and 
  updating procedures, leaving you free of the `overhead' to focus on 
  the basic updates alone

The choice of who we `sponsor' is entirely arbitrary. You always have
the option of handling the submission process yourself.  See the FAQ
submission guidelines FAQ in news.answers. 

For information, send mail to <ldetweil@csn.org>.
