Request For Discussion: comp.sys.acorn.games

Purpose
-------
The newsgroup will be dedicated to all aspects of games for Acorn
computers - help on games, cheats, new releases, recommended buys,
programming of games etc.

Rationale
---------
There has been an increasing amount of games traffic recently on
comp.sys.acorn.  The advances currently being made in the Acorn games
scene suggest that in the future traffic will grow still more. Already
over 1/4 of Acorn-related posts from the last 100 posts to
comp.sys.acorn were games related.

Charter
-------
comp.sys.acorn.games is an unmoderated newgroup which will serve as a
forum for the discussion of games on Acorn machines. Topics that may
be discussed include:

                  - Announcements of new games releases
                  - Original game reviews
                  - Magazine game review summaries (currently posted to
                    comp.sys.acorn)
                  - Discussion of game design
                  - Hints and cheats for games

Discussion
----------
Any reasonable argument against the creation of comp.sys.acorn.games
should be posted to news.groups (or do a followup to this
post). Discussion can then take place.

CHARTER

be discussed include:

                  - Hints and cheats for games

[end of charter]

Rationale (Proponent is "I")

There really isn't anyone who shouldn't be voting for this group. Those 
who like games should vote for it to get a forum for discussion which 
would be less formal and intimidating than comp.sys.acorn. Those who 
don't like games would be more than happy to see games traffic moving off 
comp.sys.acorn. Those who fall in between and argued against it last time 
the subject was brought up on the grounds of lack of traffic should by 
now be able to see that the traffic is there, even in the current 
newsgroups, and will grow.
