From Sonic Retro

This FAQ page addresses some concerns and questions readers may have about Sonic Retro.

How do I search Sonic Retro?

There should be a small search box at the top-right corner of the screen with the words "Search Sonic Retro," followed by the Search. Just type what you are looking for into the search box and press the Enter key. Or, click Search. See Help:Search for more details.

You can also use Google to search Sonic Retro by following this link. The Google index will be somewhat outdated, however, as their bots only search on a periodic basis, and may not yet have caught up with our latest edits.

What is the license agreement on the contents of this site?

Sonic Retro articles are all open content and are covered by the GNU Free Documentation License. See Sonic Retro:Copyrights.

May I mirror entire sections of Sonic Retro to my site? How much may I quote?

You may mirror or quote as much as you wish, as long as you maintain the text under the GNU Free Documentation License. See Sonic Retro:Copyrights.

If I link a word from my site to Sonic Retro, am I required to use the GNU FDL for my site? What if I use a small quote (three or four sentences)? What if I quote entire articles?

The answer to the first question is "no". Linking is not an act regulated by copyright, so the GNU FDL does not apply. The answer to the second is also "no," since it is covered by the fair use doctrine. For the third question, check with your lawyer, or just put the site under the GNU FDL.

What should I do if I find a factual error?

You should correct it. Volunteer contributions from those who believe knowledge should be free for everyone make up Sonic Retro, and the community is always ready to welcome whomever would like to join. If you do not wish to participate in editing the wiki, feel free to use the Talk Pages or to mark an article with one of our cleanup templates.

Because Sonic Retro is an all-volunteer project that anyone can edit, errors or omissions can and do creep in. This should be kept in mind when reading; the very nature of Sonic Retro means it should not be trusted completely. However, articles frequently contain citations of authoritative works where a reader can verify the information found.
