This group would exist for the purpose of discussing group demos and the groups behind these demos.  This involves membership issues, demo ratings, discussion of special techniques, new demo announcements, the music and graphics involved in the demos, and anything else pertaining to them.  Group demos are graphics and sound demonstration programs which exist mostly for the purpose of showing off the programming, graphics, and music composition skills of the authors of the demos.  Generally this involves showing off graphics tricks while music plays in the background.  Smaller version of these are sometimes known as "loaders" - If you remember the old 8-bit days, many pieces of software had scrolling message demos with music.  These are _not_ demos of games or applications, such as a shareware game, word processor, or operating system.  These are self-contained and the only thing they are demoing is the skills of the authors of the demo.  Group demos may be produced by an individual, but usually are produced by a demo group such as The Space Pigs or Renaissance.  There are at least two dozen such groups for the IBM PC (many with members on Usenet, and more who could get access), and they churn out quite a few demos and have expressed interest in an international discussion forum.  Currently there is no place for discussion of these, demos although there are a few "official" demo respositories (ftp.uwp.edu).  The discussion often ends up on comp.sys.ibm.pc.soundcard, which is somewhat inappropriate in that sound is often the least impressive part of the demos, or otherwise scattered around the net.  Demos don't really fit in any existing group.  This group is not for the posting of demos - the demos will have to be obtained through ftp (as is currently done), through a mail server, or through the binaries groups.  I already sent out an earlier "feeler" message on a few related groups to see if there was any interest in such a group, and have recieved a large volume of mail in support, enough that I feel the effort of creating the group is a worthwhile thing.  The name "groupdemos" is not the most beautiful thing in the world, but we realize that the simple name of "demos" will result in massive confusion with the large number of software product demos.  If we can reach a reasonable consensus on the above in 30 days or less, I will send out the CFV for a four week vote on the matter. Eager beavers should NOT ask me how to vote or try to vote until the CFV is issued - no vote recieved before then is valid. --  The budget is a mythical bean bag.

Demos don't really fit in any existing group.  The previous RFD was very well recieved, except for the bletcherous name of csip.groupdemos, which I hated but thought was necessary. There seems to be a consensus with which I now agree that csipg.demos will be fine - it should be obvious from the FAQs and discussions what's being discussed.  The proposal has recieved strong report, so if there are no serious objections to the above I will send out the CFV for a four week vote on the matter. --  Modern man is the missing link between apes and human beings.

If you must discuss something here in public, it should take place in 'news.groups'  Read below for the group charter.   VOTING  You should send MAIL (posts to a group are invalid) to        [email protected]  (just replying by MAIL to this message should work).  Your mail message should contain one and only one of the following statements:        I vote YES on comp.sys.ibm.pc.demos or       I vote NO on comp.sys.ibm.pc.demos  You may add a comment, but anything other than a definite statement involving "comp.sys.ibm.pc.demos" will be ignored as far as voting goes, and any vote that states "I vote xxx on comp.sys.ibm.pc.demos if..." will not be counted.  One vote per person.  If you change your mind, your last vote received will be the vote that counts.  Multiple votes from multiple accounts for one person are ineligible.   VOTING RESULTS  The voting period will run from the time of this posting till 11:59:59 PM, Tuesday, March 23, 1993.  Anything recieved after this time will be ineligible.  Results will be posted on Friday, March 26.  Within this period I will be making two additional Call For Vote postings.  At these times I will list all voters (without indicating their votes).  For the final results, the votes will be listed by vote. If the group passes by at least 100 votes and if at least two thirds of the votes are for group creation, and there are no questions raised about the vote, the group will be created by the newsgroups moderator after the prescribed period of 5 days.   VOTE TAKER NOTES  I RFDed, CFVed, and am now taking the votes for this group. This is not unusual, but can lead to potentially nasty situations.  As I want to avoid any impropriety in the vote, any lengthy flamewars, or anything else that might tangle the group in controversy:  As of the time this CFV is posted, I will cease to campaign for or against this group, in public or in private.  I will answer questions about the group and point interested parties to the CFVs, but will not advocate that they vote for or against it.

From [email protected] Mon Mar 29 20:40:36 1993 Path: uunet!bounce-back From: [email protected] (Ron Dippold) Newsgroups: news.announce.newgroups,news.groups,comp.sys.ibm.pc.soundcard,comp.sys.ibm.pc.games,comp.os.msdos.programmer,rec.games.programmer Subject: RESULT: comp.sys.ibm.pc.demos passes 286:63 Followup-To: news.groups Date: 26 Mar 1993 11:08:40 -0500 Organization: Qualcomm, Inc., San Diego, CA Lines: 425 Sender: [email protected] Approved: [email protected] Message-ID: <[email protected]> NNTP-Posting-Host: rodan.uu.net Xref: uunet news.announce.newgroups:3387 news.groups:68546 comp.sys.ibm.pc.soundcard:11022 comp.sys.ibm.pc.games:45038 comp.os.msdos.programmer:23679 rec.games.programmer:11731  Voting for comp.sys.ibm.pc.demos is over.  It received 286 votes for group creation and 63 against.  This is over four times as many yes votes as no votes (two times is necessary) and 225 more yes votes as no votes (100 is necessary).  Barring any complications, we hope to see the group created at the end of the five day period - it may take a while for the newgroup message to propogate to you and for your news administrator to create it, so don't expect to see it appear at exactly that time.   Rationale and Charter   This group will exist for the purpose of discussing group demos and the groups behind these demos.  This involves membership issues, demo ratings, discussion of special techniques, new demo announcements, and anything else pertaining to them.  Group demos are graphics (and usually sound) demonstration programs which exist mostly for the purpose of stretching the capabilities of the computer and showing off the programming, graphics, and music composition skills of the authors of the demos. Generally this involves showing off graphics tricks while music plays in the background. Smaller version of these are sometimes known as "loaders" -  If you remember the old 8-bit days, many pieces of software had scrolling text demos with music.  **** These are _not_ demos of games or applications **** , such as a new shareware game, word processor, or operating system.  These are self-contained and the only thing they are demoing is the skills of the authors of the demo.  **** This group is not for the posting of demos **** - the demos will have to be obtained through ftp (as is currently done), through a mail server, or through the binaries groups.  Group demos may be produced by an individual, but usually are produced by a demo group such as The Space Pigs or Renaissance.	There are at least two dozen such groups for the IBM PC (many with members on Usenet, and more who could get access).  They churn out quite a few demos and have expressed interest in an international discussion forum.  Please do not confuse these demo groups with pirate groups.  These groups exist for the sole purpose of creating demos (and games) and do not engage in piracy.  Pirate group do occasionally create an occasional small demo (a loader), but these are almost always of extremely inferior quality.  Currently there is no place for discussion of these demos although there are a few "official" demo respositories (ftp.uwp.edu).  The discussion often ends up on comp.sys.ibm.pc.soundcard (which is somewhat inappropriate in that sound is often the least impressive part of the demos) or otherwise scattered around the net.  Demos don't really fit in any existing group.  They're not everybody's cup of tea, but the existence of so many demo groups and those who follow them indicate quite a large following, which the RFD for this group confirmed.  The Amiga demos group is quite active, and we hope this one will be as well.   VOTE ACK  This is the list of voters.  I had to remove 6 duplicate yes votes and 2 duplicate no votes.  If you see any duplicates please post, although it shouldn't make much difference in the overall totals barring massive deception.
