                      FIRST REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION

                     MODERATION OF COMP.LANG.VISUAL


comp.lang.visual is a newsgroup devoted to visual programming languages.
Microsoft, Inc., has released two popular programming systems called
Visual Basic and Visual C++.  These products are not visual programming
languages, by anyone's definition of the term.  However, since their
introduction, hundreds of Usenet readers have seen the newsgroup
'comp.lang.visual' and thought that the newsgroup was for support of
those products.  A special newsgroup was created for Visual Basic,
comp.lang.basic.visual, and other groups should cover Visual C++.
While these groups stemmed the tide of improper posts, new users
consistently see the comp.lang.visual name and post their queries
there.  There have been many attempts to prevent this; regular
postings, FAQs, and even informative follow-up letters are sent to the
posters, but the flow continues to drown out normal discussion of truly
visual programming languages.

The issue of what to do next ended up in a straw poll between the
choices of making the group moderated or renaming it to something else.
The vote was close but moderation won taking 54% of the votes.
Alternative names proposed haven't satisfied everyone.

This is the first RFD for moderation of comp.lang.visual.  Please reply
to this post with your ideas, suggestions, comments, criticism. This
RFD will be reposted two weeks from the date of its initial posting
incorporating any good suggestions from the followup postings. This
discussion shall take place within news.groups; all followups should be
sent there.

After two weeks from the second RFD, provided that the response is
generally positive, the first of two CFV's (call for votes) will be
posted. The voting shall be performed under the supervision of Ron
Dippold and the Usenet Volunteer Votetakers.

David McIntyre, maintainer of the FAQ for comp.lang.visual, has
volunteered to be moderator.  Persons who would like to be alternate
moderators in his absence are strongly encouraged to respond to this
first RFD and be added to the moderators list BEFORE the CFV comes out.

Thank you in advance for your thoughtful comments.

    A forum for general discussion of visual programming languages.  A
working definition of visual programming languages is posted in the
regular comp.lang.visual FAQ.  Non-visual aspects of the Visual Basic and
Visual C++ environments, products of Microsoft, Inc., are not legal
discussion topics for comp.lang.visual.

Reorganization:
    Moderation of comp.lang.visual is now being proposed because discussion
of truly visual programming languages has been drowned out by postings
dealing with the intricacies Visual Basic and Visual C++.  Efforts to
redirect the posters have not been effective.  Alternative name proposals
for comp.lang.visual have been rejected.  Response to RFDs for moderation
has been overwhelmingly positive.
