                     REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)
          moderated group comp.ai (moderates existing group)

This is a formal Request For Discussion (RFD) for the moderation of
the world-wide Usenet newsgroup comp.ai.  This is not a Call for Votes
(CFV); you cannot vote at this time.  Procedural details are below.

Newsgroup line:
comp.ai			Artificial Intelligence. (Moderated)

RATIONALE: comp.ai

Comp.ai is a Usenet group which has existed for over 10 years whose
subject is Artificial Intelligence.  The group has several specialized
subgroups including .alife, .fuzzy, .games, .genetic, .neural-nets and
.philosophy.  With the growth of Usenet in recent years comp.ai has
suffered from an excess of off-topic posting and inappropriate
cross-posting.  The technical content is now very low, with few
experienced researchers or practitioners contributing to the group.
FAQ's have not been posted or maintained for some time.

Recent discussion in the group and responses to a survey have shown
that there is substantial support among the current readership for
moderating the group to eliminate off-topic and inflammatory posts and
provide a more attractive forum for informed and thoughtful posting,
so increasing the usefulness of the group to all of its audience.

CHARTER: comp.ai

Comp.ai is a moderated forum for announcements, reports, enquiries and
discussions about the theory, practice, history and state-of-the-art
of Artificial Intelligence.  Its scope is AI in general, but it is not
intended to be a forum for postings concerning areas of AI for which
specialized subgroups exist, unless they have a clear wider relevance.
Announcements of conferences, books, other publications, researches,
applications, educational programs, and other happenings are relevant,
as are those of AI positions available and non-commercial AI software.

Moderation policies:

Postings consistent with this charter are welcomed.  Binary postings,
personal attacks, vulgarity, and postings of a purely commercial
nature will not be accepted, nor will those with an excessive ratio of
quoted to new material or misleading headings.  Posters of frequently
asked questions may instead be directed to relevant resources.

The purpose of moderation is to improve the quality, relevance and
readability of content, and the value of the group to its current and
future readership.  The moderators will work to achieve this purpose,
and undertake to apply the moderation policies fairly and impartially.

END CHARTER.

MODERATOR INFO: comp.ai

Moderator:  David Kinny <[email protected]>

As is usual, a single moderator has been nominated, but moderation is
expected to be largely automated, based on a whitelist, with human
vetting of posts from unknown sources carried out collaboratively by a
world-wide group.  Anyone who wants to contribute to that effort or in
other ways should email the proposed moderator.

END MODERATOR INFO.

PROCEDURE:

This is a request for discussion, not a call for votes.  In this phase
of the process, any potential problems with the proposed newsgroups
should be raised and resolved.  The discussion period will continue
for a minimum of 21 days (starting from when the first RFD for this
proposal is posted to news.announce.newgroups), after which a Call For
Votes (CFV) may be posted by a neutral vote taker if the discussion
warrants it.  Please do not attempt to vote until this happens.

All discussion of this proposal should be posted to news.groups.

This RFD attempts to comply fully with the Usenet newsgroup creation
guidelines outlined in "How to Create a New Usenet Newsgroup" and "How
to Format and Submit a New Group Proposal".  Please refer to these
documents (available in news.announce.newgroups) if you have any
questions about the process.

DISTRIBUTION:

This RFD has been posted to the following newsgroups:

  news.announce.newgroups, news.groups, comp.ai

IMPORTANT VOTING PROCEDURE NOTES: READ THIS BEFORE VOTING

The purpose of a Usenet vote is to determine the genuine interest in
reading the proposed newsgroup, and soliciting votes from uninterested
parties defeats this purpose.  Do *not* distribute this CFV;  instead,
direct people to the official CFV as posted to news.announce.newgroups.
Distributing specific voting instructions or pre-marked copies of
this CFV is considered vote fraud.

This is a public vote:  All email addresses, names and votes will be
listed in the final RESULT post.  The name used may be either a real
name or an established Usenet handle.

At most one vote is allowed per person or per account.  Duplicate
votes will be resolved in favor of the most recent valid vote.

Voters must mail their ballots directly to the votetaker.  Anonymous,
forwarded, or proxy votes are not valid, nor are votes mailed from
WWW/HTML/CGI forms (which should not exist).  Votes from nonexistent
accounts are also invalid, and the votetaker will reject any "munged"
address he cannot decipher immediately.

Please direct any questions to the votetaker at <[email protected]>

HOW TO VOTE:

Extract the ballot from the CFV by deleting everything before and after
the "BEGINNING OF BALLOT" and "END OF BALLOT" lines.  Don't worry about
the spacing of the columns or any quote characters (">") that your
reply inserts.  Please, DO NOT send the entire CFV back to me!

Fill in the ballot as shown below.  Please provide your REAL NAME and
indicate your desired vote in the appropriate locations inside the ballot.

Examples of how to properly indicate your vote:

  [ YES     ]  example.yes.vote
  [ NO      ]  example.no.vote
  [ ABSTAIN ]  example.abstention
  [ CANCEL  ]  example.cancellation

DO NOT modify, alter or delete any information in this ballot!
If you do, the voting software will probably reject your ballot.

When finished, MAIL the ballot to: < [email protected] >
Just "replying" to this message should work, but check the "To:" line.

If you do not receive an acknowledgment of your vote within three
days contact the votetaker about the problem.  You are responsible
for reading your ack and making sure your vote is registered correctly.

If these instructions are unclear, please consult the Introduction to
Usenet Voting or the Usenet Voting FAQ at http://www.stanford.edu/~neilc/uvv.
