This is not a Call for Votes (CFV); you cannot vote at this time. Procedural details are below.  Newsgroups line: misc.legal.self-represent	Representing oneself in legal affairs.  RATIONALE: misc.legal.self-represent  With the advances in the information age, more information is available now to persons representing themselves in legal proceedings in and out of court than ever before.  As a result publishing for "Pro Se" ("For Self") litigants is an expanding field and more and more persons are electing to rely on themselves to carry out a wide variety of legal proceedings.  While several newsgroups serve as fora for general legal discussion, no newsgroup serves as a focused forum for persons representing themselves in court to exchange information on the details, mechanics and legal theories necessary to conduct their cases successfully.  Such discussions, when they occur, are usually easy to lose and hard to find as they are inconsistently cross-posed inside of a wide variety of very busy newsgroups that generally serve other topics.  The presence of many Pro Se topics within these newsgroups indicates that a community of readers and posters exists which are concerned with Pro Se issues and which would be well served by a dedicated newsgroup.  CHARTER: misc.legal.self-represent  This unmoderated newsgroup would be a focused forum for folks with legal problems and legal experience and information to share.  Contributions from attorneys, whether exhortations to get a lawyer or philosophical, or practical comments, would be welcome.  This focused forum would provide a place for folks with legal problems and legal experience and information to share their viewpoints, tips, horror stories, heaven stories, favorite books, references to court rules and case law, recommendations for attorneys, advice on conduct in court, complaints about judges, complaints about attorneys, complaints about people who represent themselves, praises for any of the above, recommended Internet law sites, recommended approaches to researching case law, recommendations for legal lists to subscribe to, and otherwise provide a place for people to engage in the discussion of a wide spectrum of topics about the perils, joys, defeats, triumphs, and how-to of representing yourself in court and in other legal proceedings.  All comments are on a "Caveat Emptor" basis, and would not constitute legal advice.  Advertisements for legal services would be on-topic.  END CHARTER.  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.newsgroups), 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.

IMPORTANT VOTING PROCEDURE NOTES: READ THIS BEFORE VOTING  Standard Guidelines for voting apply.  One vote per person, one account per voter.  Votes must be mailed directly from the voter to the votetaker. Anonymous, forwarded or proxy votes are not valid.  Votes mailed by WWW/HTML/CGI forms are considered to be anonymous votes.  Vote counting is automated.  Failure to follow these directions may mean that your vote does not get counted.  If you do not receive an acknowledgment of your vote within three days contact the votetaker about the problem.  It's your responsibility to make sure your vote is registered correctly.  Duplicate votes are resolved in favor of the most recent valid vote.  Addresses and votes of all voters will be published in the final voting results post.  The purpose of a Usenet vote is to determine the genuine interest of persons who would read a proposed newsgroup.  Soliciting votes from disinterested parties defeats this purpose.  Please do not distribute this CFV.  If you must, direct people to the official CFV as posted to news.announce.newgroups.  Distributing pre-marked or otherwise edited copies of this CFV is generally considered to be vote fraud. When in doubt, ask the votetaker.  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.  When finished, MAIL the ballot to: < [email protected] > Just "replying" to this message should work, but check the "To:" line.  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.
