Charter:  Comp.bbs.misc is for discussion of all aspects of Bulletin Board Systems (BBSs).  Topics would include those current discussed in alt.bbs, .ads, .allsysop, .cnet, .internet, .lists, and .lists.d.  Topics related to specific BBS software are not included, and can be discussed in their corresponding comp.sys.* group or form a subgroup of comp.bbs (like comp.bbs.waffle is attempting at this time).  Discussion of this proposal should be posted to news.groups.  As per the Guidelines, discussion that occurs there is the only discussion that counts.  If your site does not carry news.groups, and you are interested in this discussion, get your administrator to carry the group.  Currently there is a proposal to move alt.bbs.waffle to comp.bbs.waffle. It is a seperate proposal from this one, but the course of that vote may affect this proposal.  If the group fails, I'd be willing to amend the charter to allow for discussion of BBS software that runs on different platforms, thus allowing comp.bbs.waffle discussion. --    ///   ____   \\\       |"Sorry, did I say something wrong?

Charter:  Comp.bbs.misc is for discussion of all aspects of Bulletin Board Systems (BBSs).  Topics would include those current discussed in alt.bbs, .ads, .allsysop, .internet, .lists, and .lists.d.  Topics related to specific BBS software are not included, and can be discussed in their correspond- ing comp.sys.* group or form a subgroup of comp.bbs (like comp.bbs.- waffle).  If the software is platform independent, it can be discussed in comp.bbs.misc.  Discussion of this proposal should be posted to news.groups.  As per the Guidelines, discussion that occurs there is the only discussion that counts.  If your site does not carry news.groups, and you are interested in this discussion, get your administrator to carry the group.  comp.bbs.waffle has now successfully passed the voting procedure, and will shortly be created.  Thus the door has been closed on the discussion of specific BBS software in comp.bbs.misc.  Said discussion should take part in either the relevent comp.sys.* group, or create its own comp.bbs.* group.  Thus, the suggestion of merging alt.bbs.cnet into comp.bbs.misc has been dropped, unless it is a platform indepenent piece of software.  There has been discussion opposed to the merging of the .ads, .lists, and .lists.d groups into comp.bbs.misc, on the grounds that they would reduce the quality of posts in comp.bbs.misc below the current alt.bbs group's quality.  If there is enough interest in creating a moderated comp.bbs.lists group and unmoderated .d companion group, to handle both ads and lists, I will consider adding them to this proposal as ballot elements.  I may be willing to act as moderator, but I might not be able.  Depends on the administration here.  Lack of discussion on this subtopic will be taken as disapproval of creation of subgroups and approval of their absorption.  The first RFD was posted on Monday, April 13th, 1992. The CFV is tentatively proposed for posting on Wednesday, May 13th, 1992. --    ///   ____   \\\       |"Sorry, did I say something wrong?

There has been discussion opposed to the merging of the .ads, .lists, and .lists.d groups into comp.bbs.misc, on the grounds that they would reduce the quality of posts in comp.bbs.misc below the current alt.bbs group's quality.  However, after checking the Guidelines as to proposals for moderated newsgroups, as explicitly written it would require we push this proposal for another 21 to 31 days while the extra group of comp.bbs.lists be worked out.  It is quite likely that comp.bbs.lists will be created later.  Indeed, at about 1 week into the CFV of this proposal, I will start the RFD for comp.bbs.lists.  The current thought is that .misc be used for discussion of .lists, rather than forming a .d group.  However, both groups will be put forward in the RFD to avoid adding groups and extending the time.  The first RFD was posted on Monday, April 13th, 1992. The CFV will be posted on Wednesday, May 13th, 1992. --    ///   ____   \\\       |"Sorry, did I say something wrong?

No further votes will be accepted regarding this newsgroup.  At the close of the polling address on June 15, 1992 at 00:00 CDT, the results are:          Total YES votes:  150         Total NO  votes:   24  These results pass both the 100 YES-NO and 2/3 majority YES requirements as outlined by the Guidelines for a newsgroup.  A list of voters and the way they voted appears at the end of this posting.  There will now be a 5 day period while the results are given for public perusal before the newgroup message is sent out for the group as described below.  Status: unmoderated  Charter:  Comp.bbs.misc is for discussion of all aspects of Bulletin Board Systems (BBSs).  Topics would include those currently discussed in alt.bbs, .ads, .allsysop, .internet, .lists, and .lists.d.  Topics related to specific BBS software are not included, and can be discussed in their correspond- ing comp.sys.* group or form a subgroup of comp.bbs (like comp.bbs.- waffle).  If the software is platform independent, it can be discussed in comp.bbs.misc.  Future comp.bbs.* groups' charters will take priority over this one.  As it is useless to attempt to rmgroup ay alt.* newsgroup, no rmgroup message will be sent out for the alt newsgroups whose topics have been relocated to the comp.bbs.misc group, although posting to these groups is not recommended.  Complete texts of each vote listed below are available during the 5 days of post-discussion.  174 votes (150 YES, 24 NO) follow, "sort"ed:  NO:  [email protected] (Stephen Cristol) <[email protected]> Christophe Wolfhugel <[email protected]> ELISHA FARA LANDMAN <[email protected]> John G Dobnick <[email protected]> Marc Moorcroft <[email protected]> Mark AuBuchon <[email protected]> Scott Mash <[email protected]> Scott Sanbeg <[email protected]> Tim Becker <[email protected]> Timothy VanFosson <[email protected]> elroy.Jpl.Nasa.Gov!abode!gallery!sysop [email protected] (John F.
