Q) What is SYX?
A) SYX is a club for the younger lovers of the show The X-Files.

Q) I just got on was away for "x" amount of time. When did this group form?
A) Over Christmas Break, 1994, around December 22nd or so.

Q) What does SYX stand for?
A) Smart Young X-philes.

Q) What is SYX's full name?
A) >deep breath<...Young X-philes Who Are Mature And Smart Enough To Understand A Great Show When They See One, or YXWAMASETUAGSWTSO! Now you can see why we have a nickname!

Q) How do you pronounce YXWAMASETUAGSWTSO?
A) OK, I'll attempt this. "YIX-wahm-ahs-EHT-oo-AUGHS-wit-SOE" Keep in mind, though, that this is only a rough guesstimate (a cross between a guess and an estimate).

Q) How do you pronounce SYX?
A) There are two ways: (1) "six" [Like the number 6] (2) "ess-why-ex".

Q) How can I join SYX?
A) Send your full name, e-mail address, age, birthday, home town, and "Official" position to Nikki Rummer, our President, at ([email protected]), or to me, Pam Smith, at ([email protected]).

Q) Are there any special requirements?
A) Only that you are under 21.

Q) What happens when you reach 21, if you joined when you were younger?
A) You become an Honorary SOX (Smart *Old* X-Phile). But you have to have joined before your 21st birthday to become an Honorary SOX. Otherwise, you will be assumed to be a spy from the government and assassinated immediately with "terminal intensity." *:-O

Q) OK, then, what happens when you do become a SOXer?
A) SOXer's continue to recieve the Newsletter, and can still send out their comments to everyone, but their comments will not be included in the Newsletter. Also, their names are removed from the SYX membership list, and moved to the SOX membership list.

Q) I've seen people's .sigs that have "Official xxxxxx of SYX." How can I become the Official xxxxxxxxxx?
A) Just make one up. Make sure that the one you pick isn't already taken. Send it to Nikki and she will add it to your name on our roster.

Q) Is there an SYX newsletter?
A) Yes. It is send weekly through e-mail by Prez Nikki, usually on Saturdays or Sundays.

Q) What is in those newsletters, anyway?
A) Usually, they contain the Club Roster, Quote of the Episode (provided by Yours Truly), opinions on the latest episode, and whatever pops into our collective heads. :)

Q) I didn't get the newsletter, even though I sent in that I wanted to join. What's the deal here?
A) There are two possibilities: A) There was a problem with your email address, and it didn't reach you. You should email Nikki and tell her you didn't get it. B) Nikki was either sick or away. There will be *no* newsletter for that week if this happens, unless someone else makes one. Nikki will usually email everyone in this case.
