This article is from the ER FAQ, by Rose Cooper firstname.lastname@example.org with numerous contributions by others.
There is a newsgroup devoted to discussion of the show,
<alt.tv.er>. There is also a newsgroup especially for British
"ER" fans, called <uk.media.tv.er>, and one for Italian fans,
On April 30, 1998, a new group was born: <alt.tv.er.creative>,
which was developed for the posting and discussion of "ER"-related
fanfiction (see 8.5 for more information on fanfic).
*And on October 5, 1998, Yet Another Bastid Chyld was added to the
"ER" Newsgroups Family: <alt.binaries.tv.er>, for the "posting of images,
sound and video files concerned with ER and the actors from ER" (from the
control message sent by Tom Coates).
If you can't find these newsgroups, bug the people in charge at
your site until they carry it; alternatively, you can also use DejaNews
<http://www.dejanews.com> to browse Usenet newsgroups.
You can also subscribe to an "ER" mailing list, for the purpose
of discussing the show. Send an e-mail message to:
with the text:
subscribe ER-L [YourReal Name]
