The Mad Archiver


Frequently Asked Questions

Why do you call yourself The Mad Archiver? Why are you so angry?
I'm not angry. In fact, I'm quite a positive person! Here, I'm using the term mad to refer to the fact that, as I'm quite busy both on-line and off, I must be positively daft to have undertaken starting this site.

What does ______ mean in a transcript?

May I use excerpts from the transcripts on my site, message board, etc.?
If you wish to use copyrighted material from this site for purposes of your own that go beyond 'fair use', you must obtain permission from the copyright owner. With that in mind, you may use quotes from our transcripts in your fanfiction, message boards, etc. Credit by linking to this site would be appreciated.

Where can I find transcripts for ______?
If you're looking for transcripts for a particular TV show (or movie), I suggest you do what I do and give it a Google. Try including the terms episode transcripts or TV show transcripts along with the name of the TV series.

Didn't you previously have more content?
Yes, there were a few complete transcripts as well as links to other large sets. I downsized the site in late November of 2017. As a Christian growing in my faith and trying to "walk the walk," I've grown concerned about copyright infringement; in an effort to better comply with "fair use," I reduced the content here to a few samples, as an introduction to these TV series. If these scenes pique your interest, please support the show(s) by purchasing the official DVD releases from the retailer of your choice.

I have some content: will you host it for me?
Well, this is an archive, so if you have content - such as episode scenes or fanfiction - that I could archive here, write to me at the address below and we can discuss it.

What is up with this plain website layout?
Since this site is on a free webhost, a layout with no graphics means that more bandwidth is available for the content. Plus, since this site is intended to have content from multiple fandoms, a basic layout gives the pages a more uniform look.

Hmm, that's a good idea. May I use this website layout?
Yes, you may as long as you give credit by including "the site's current layout" paragraph below with all of the links intact.

Waiting on a Response?

When a site visitor takes the time to write to me, I make an effort to write back. If you're waiting on a response from me, note the following:

If you followed my suggestions for emailing and it's been a few days and you still haven't heard from me, I apologize. Sometimes, especially if someone asks a question, I lack the time to craft a proper reply. So I put off writing to the person and before you know it, I've waited too long to respond. I'm not trying to be rude; I'm just a bit lazy sometimes. Feel free to write again.
