The First Request for Discussion (RFD) on the REORGANIZATION of
COMP.OS.MS-WINDOWS.APPS
----=----=----=----=----=----=----=----=----=----=----=----=----

Note: Discussion on this RFD should occur in "news.groups"
      as the Guidelines suggest.

Introduction
------------
The need for a reorganization of COMP.OS.MS-WINDOWS.APPS has
become apparent recently, as users in the newsgroup (including
myself) have complained aloud at the increasing traffic on
the numerous applications available for the MS-Windows operating
environment. In March, 1993, the Software Publishers Association 
reported that Windows applications outsold DOS applications for 
the first time in history. Since it has become all but impossible to
buy a PC nowadays without a copy of MS-Windows on it, and with the
upcoming release of Windows 4.0, MS-Windows appears to be
an operating environment that is stable, widely-accepted,
and here to stay.

This newsgroup has an enormous amount of traffic
and is consistently ranked in the top 100 or so newsgroups for
traffic and popularity. Finding topics on the applications
one is personally interested in has become all but impossible.
 
This serves as the formal Request for Discussion (RFD) on the
reorganization of comp.os.ms-windows.apps.
--------------------------------------------------------------
General Charter to be included for all new proposed groups:

Discussion on each proposed group will be limited to topics
on the MS-Windows applications that fall under that group's 
specific subject area.  For instance, only word-processing 
applications specific to the MS-Windows operating environment 
would be discussed in the proposed newsgroup, 
       comp.os.ms-windows.apps.word-proc
Applications not falling under any of the proposed groups,
or whose proposed groups do not pass their individual creation
votes, can be discussed in the proposed renamed group,
       comp.os.ms-windows.apps.misc

Discussion may be on commercial or non-commercial software.

Discussion may include, but is no means limited to:
questions, answers, reviews, comments, useability comparisons,
personal experiences, problem-solving, etc. on any
MS-Windows application that falls within that group's subject area.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Proposed Renaming:
-----------------
comp.os.ms-windows.apps -> comp.os.ms-windows.apps.misc (unmoderated)

Charter: This newsgroup will take the place of the current
         catch-all newsgroup for topics related to various
         MS-Windows application discussions that do not fall
         into any of the proposed groups below (eg.-
         multimedia applications, Quicken, Mathematica); 
         and for the discussion of any MS-Windows applications for
         the below proposed new newsgroups which do not pass a final
         vote. Discussion on the Windows operating environment
         itself (eg.- new versions) should take place on 
         comp.os.ms-windows.misc, not on this group. 

         It is also proposed that comp.os.ms-windows.apps
         be removed after a 3-month period (to give people
         time to switch over) if the proposed group passes.

Specific Charters on New Groups Proposed:
----------------------------------------
Name: comp.os.ms-windows.apps.word-proc (unmoderated)

Description: Discussion on MS-Windows word-processing applications.

Charter: The subject area for this group is word-processing
         applications. Any discussion related to questions
         or comments on MS-Windows word-processing software
         would be appropriate here. AmiPro, Word for Windows,
         WordPerfect for Windows, etc. are software 
         topics appropriate for this group.
         The General Charter is also included here.
---------
Name: comp.os.ms-windows.apps.spreadsheet (unmoderated)

Description: Discussion on MS-Windows spreadsheet applications.

Charter: The subject area for this group is spreadsheet
         applications. Any discussion related to questions
         or comments on MS-Windows spreadsheet software
         would be appropriate here. Excel, Quattro Pro,
         Lotus 1-2-3, etc. are examples of software 
         topics appropriate for this group.
         The General Charter is also included here.
---------
Name: comp.os.ms-windows.apps.comm (unmoderated)

Description: Discussion on MS-Windows communication applications.

Charter: The subject area for this group is communication
         applications. Any discussion related to questions
         or comments on MS-Windows communications software
         would be appropriate here. WinCIM, Procomm+ for
         Windows, Winfax Pro, etc. are examples of software
         topics appropriate for this group. 
         The General Charter is also included here.
---------
Name: comp.os.ms-windows.apps.utilities (unmoderated)

Description: Discussion on MS-Windows utilities.

Charter: The subject area for this group is utilities for
         MS-Windows. Such add-ons as PC-Tools for Windows,
         HP's Dashboard, Norton Desktop for Windows, XtGold
         for Windows, Afterdark, etc. are examples
         of software topics appropriate for this group. 
         The General Charter is also included here.
---------
Name: comp.os.ms-windows.apps.networking (unmoderated)

Description: Discussion of MS-Windows networking applications.

Charter: The subject area for this group is networking
         applications. Any discussion related to questions
         or comments on MS-Windows networking software
         would be appropriate here. Lantastic, Netware,
         Windows for Workgroups, etc.
         are examples of software topics appropriate for
         this group.
         The General Charter is also included here.
---------
Name: comp.os.ms-windows.apps.graphics (unmoderated)

Description: Discussion of MS-Windows graphics & CAD applications.

Charter: The subject area for this group is graphics
         presentation and CAD applications. Any discussion
         related to questions or comments on MS-Windows
         graphics presentation and CAD software would
         be appropriate here. AutoCAD, Corel Draw,
         Harvard Graphics, etc. are examples of software
         topics appropriate for this group.
         The General Charter is also included here.
---------
Purposely left out of RFD:

Databases . . . . Covered already by the comp.databases.* hierarchy
PIMs . . . . . .  Not enough traffic to warrant own group (.01%)
Financial . . . . Not enough traffic to warrant own group (.87%)
Programming . . . Covered already by comp.os.ms-windows.programmer.*

Percentages were computed from a 2 month survey of subjects on
comp.os.ms-windows.apps.
---------

Summary
-------
By renaming the current group and adding 6 more
newsgroups to the hierarchy, comp.os.ms-windows.apps
will be made more easily readable in the near future.
The reorganization of comp.os.ms-windows.apps has
been overdue and this proposal has taken pains to be
as simple and as logical as possible.

Why not comp.os.ms-windows.excel, *.word, *.xtree, *.pc-tools, etc.?

The alternative reorganization plan would create a newsgroup
for each "major" application that exists on the market today.
A reorganization plan that goes by specific application names 
is much more uncertain & difficult, because those names are 
subject to change as software companies get eaten up
(and the name of their product changes), reorganize themselves,
or dump products in favor of following other avenues. 
Also, what constitutes a "major" (as opposed to minor or
hardly used) application would have to be argued; shareware and
freeware applications would also have to be equally represented.
And what is popular today certainly may not even exist 5 years 
>from now. Upkeep and maintenance of the hierarchy would have
to be done routinely, which is an unlikely prospect.
Last, if something like *.amipro doesn't pass, Amipro users
are left discussing their word processor only in *.misc again. 

If such a reorganization scheme is used, where do questions such as, 
"What's the best Windows word-processor/spreadsheet/etc.?" fall 
under? Do they have to crosspost to all the word-processor groups, 
or just *.misc? If they do the latter, a large pros & cons 
discussion on what is *the* best word processor would then ensue 
on *.misc, which would make such an reorganization 
effectively useless.

and counted but the reply to the voter was returned as undeliverable.  If your
name appears on the list, you do not need to re-vote.  If you voted before

ask your site's postmaster.

CHARTERS

General Charter to be included for all new proposed groups:
 
        Discussion on each proposed group will be limited to topics
        on the MS-Windows applications that fall under that group's 
        specific subject area.  For instance, only word-processing 
        applications specific to the MS-Windows operating environment 
        would be discussed in the proposed newsgroup, 
               comp.os.ms-windows.apps.word-proc
        Applications not falling under any of the proposed groups,
        or whose proposed groups do not pass their individual creation
        votes, can be discussed in the proposed renamed group,
               comp.os.ms-windows.apps.misc

        Discussion may be on commercial or non-commercial software.

        Discussion may include, but is no means limited to:
        questions, answers, reviews, comments, useability comparisons,
        personal experiences, problem-solving, etc. on any
        MS-Windows application that falls within that group's subject area.

comp.os.ms-windows.apps.misc (unmoderated)
(proposed to replace comp.os.ms-windows.apps)

        This newsgroup will take the place of the current
        catch-all newsgroup for topics related to various
        MS-Windows application discussions that do not fall
        into any of the proposed groups below (eg.-
        multimedia applications, Quicken, Mathematica); 
        and for the discussion of any MS-Windows applications for
        the below proposed new newsgroups which do not pass a final
        vote. Discussion on the Windows operating environment
        itself (eg.- new versions) should take place on 
        comp.os.ms-windows.misc, not on this group. 

        It is also proposed that comp.os.ms-windows.apps
        be removed after a 3-month period (to give people
        time to switch over) if the proposed group passes.

comp.os.ms-windows.apps.word-proc (unmoderated)

        The subject area for this group is word-processing
        applications. Any discussion related to questions
        or comments on MS-Windows word-processing software

        WordPerfect for Windows, etc. are software 
        topics appropriate for this group.
        The General Charter is also included here.

comp.os.ms-windows.apps.comm (unmoderated)

        The subject area for this group is communication
        applications. Any discussion related to questions
        or comments on MS-Windows communications software

        Windows, Winfax Pro, etc. are examples of software
        topics appropriate for this group. 
        The General Charter is also included here.

comp.os.ms-windows.apps.utilities (unmoderated)

        The subject area for this group is utilities for
        MS-Windows. Such add-ons as PC-Tools for Windows,
        HP's Dashboard, Norton Desktop for Windows, XtGold
        for Windows, Afterdark, etc. are examples
        of software topics appropriate for this group. 
        The General Charter is also included here.

comp.os.ms-windows.apps.financial (unmoderated)

        The subject area for this group is financial
        and tax software. Any discussion related to
