The Sonic the Hedgehog Code v1.1

Copyright 1996 John W. Johnston,

See disclaimer below. Distribute freely.

Last Updated: 08 April 97


Are you a fan of Sonic the Hedgehog? Well, tell the world! Presented

herein is the Sonic the Hedgehog Code (abbrev.: StH Code). Void where

prohibited. Simply add this convenient code to your sig file, and all the net

will know the truth of your love for Sonic, the Freedom Fighters, and even

Robotnik. At cons, add it to your badge! A million uses! The Sonic the

Hedgehog Code is a simple, powerful, and, hopefully, _silly_ tool for fan




To distinguish our code from other, lesser codes, the code is always

preceded by the identifier "StH", and the version indicator "JJ1". These

are _not_ optional! Follow this with codes from the categories below.

You do not have to include every code; only those you think significant.

In cases where degrees are indicated, feel free to expand the code in

either direction as you see fit. Whitespace between the codes is

recommended but not required; "Son++ Sal++" and "Son++Sal++" are equally

acceptable. Case is important! As yet there is little possibility of

confusion if you use "ant++" instead of the correct "Ant++", but we are

attempting to maintain forward compatibility.



The following modifiers may be applied to the codes. Most of them

indicate a degree of indecision.

/ Used when two different values apply. For example, "Rbk---^/++".

> Indicates a range of feelings. "Bun->++"

~ Indicates waffling and indecision. "Snv~"

? Used to denote true bafflement. "Ant?"

{} Use curly brackets around a rating you hope to attain. "${+++}"

[] Use square brackets around a rating that once applied. "Dp[s]"


{Characters We Love}

You are not obliged to include a code for _every_ character; just

the ones you want us to know about. Many groups and characters are listed

below. The ratings are as follows:

XX--- I want to _roboticize_ this character.

XX-- I turn off the TV when this character is on.

XX- I'd rather this character wasn't on so often.

XX or XX0 No feelings; ho-hum.

XX+ I'm fond of this character.

XX++ I love this character!

XX+++ I have written mash notes to this character; I have a tattoo.

You may modify this rating by appending one of the following:

i I see elements of myself in the character.

! I have a sexual attraction to the character.

^ I love the character for his or her mind.

" I love the character for his or her ears.

t I love the character for his or her tail(s).

For example: "Sal+++! Bun+++""
