REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION

  Create an UNMODERATED Usenet newsgroup called comp.sys.ibm.pc.groupdemos

  This announcement is cross-posted to newsgroups whose readers may have 
  interest in the discussion about the new group; follow-up discussion will
  take place in 'news.groups' and replies are forwarded to there. 

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 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.

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.

active, and we hope this one will be as well.

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.


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

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.

Union:  A group which takes the average working Joe, busting his hump 50 weeks
of the year in a factory, and gives him the power to spend one of those weeks
carrying a picket sign around in the rain outside that factory.
