From [email protected] Wed Apr  5 19:21:41 1995 Xref: rpi news.announce.newgroups:950 comp.sys.handhelds:7014 Newsgroups: news.announce.newgroups,comp.sys.handhelds Path: rpi!tale From: [email protected] (Chris Spell) Subject: CFV:  comp.sys.hp48 moderated and comp.sys.hp48.d Followup-To: poster Sender: [email protected] Nntp-Posting-Host: Reply-To: [email protected] Date: 15 Mar 91 04:56:31 GMT Approved: [email protected] Lines: 80  CALL FOR VOTES:  comp.sys.hp48      (moderated: source, informative postings) comp.sys.hp48.d    (unmoderated: general discussion)  Charter for comp.sys.hp48:  The purpose of this moderated group is to allow uniform source postings, informative postings, summaries of interesting threads in comp.sys.hp48.d, and anything in general that is worth archiving. Each posting will have a standard rkive(1) header to permit automatic archiving of the articles posted.  Everything of value from comp.sys.hp48.d will appear in comp.sys.hp48 in some form; one could read comp.sys.hp48 alone and be assured of missing nothing of significance.  This will also eliminate saving all the articles of a particular thread, as it will ultimately appear condensed in comp.sys.hp48.  The moderator will be responsible for posting all articles in timely fashion.  The moderator will attempt to test all source before posting, and review such postings as time permits.  Source will be posted in asc format, uuencoded if necessary, and rpl or assembly when available. While every effort will be made to ensure submissions represent functional code, there is, of course, no guarantee of function or suitability for purpose by the moderator.  The moderator will maintain a frequently asked questions list which will be posted on a regular basis.  The moderator will attempt to handle simple questions by mail, except when answers are deemed sufficiently useful to the group to be included in the digest.  This should reduce the volume of such questions in comp.sys.hp48.d, and afford people who might feel uncomfortable about posting a "stupid question" a measure of flame-retardance.  The position of moderator will be held by Chris Spell until such time as he wishes to name a successor.  Charter for comp.sys.hp48.d:  This unmoderated group is for general discussions.  Anything permissible within the rules of net etiquette may be posted here pertaining to the hp48sx or such systems sufficiently similar as to warrant the interest of hp48sx users.  Voting period:  The voting will officially start with the appearance of this message in news.announce.newgroups and end 12:00am EST April 11, 1991.  This should allow approximately 25 days for the vote to take place.  Voting rules:  All votes must be sent to [email protected]  The subject line should include:          I vote YES for comp.sys.hp48[.d]         or         I vote NO to comp.sys.hp48[.d]  This account will only be active for the duration of the voting period; rejection by the mailer should be considered evidence that your vote was not cast during the voting period.  Votes posted to the group, mailed to accounts other than [email protected], telephoned, sent by US mail, fax, or SCUD missile cannot and will not be counted.  Ambiguous votes will not be counted.  Voters should check the weekly update message to make sure your name appears as having been counted.  If you do not see your name, please resend your vote. Votes will not be counted twice.  All votes are subject to verification.  Sponsors:          Chris Spell, Alonzo Gariepy, Jeff E Mandel  --  _____________________________________________________________________ |      [email protected][ thebeach.uucp | uncw.uucp | ]      | |    {...,gatech,rutgers,decvax}!mcnc!ecsvax!uncw!thebeach!spell    | ---------------------------------------------------------------------
