Proponent:          Bill Ice <[email protected]>              ...and more than 100 individuals who responded to a personal poll.  This is a formal Request For Discussion on the creation of an unmoderated newsgroup for discussion of issues related to screenwriting, misc.writing.screenplays.  This RFD has been posted in accordance with the Guidelines for Newsgroup Creation. Its language is based on previously submitted RFDs. Please cross-post this to the following relevant news groups (all unmoderated):    news.announce.newgroups, news.groups, misc.writing,   rec.arts.movies.production, rec.arts.movies  Followups to this RFD are to be posted only to news.groups, where the actual discussion is to take place.  PROPOSED CHARTER  The misc.writing.screenplays newsgroup will be open to discussion of the art and business aspects of writing screenplays both for feature films and television. Specific topics may include but are not limited to:          Finding an Agent         Querying Production Companies         Latest formatting trends         Creative screenplay writing         Screenwriting software         Screenwriting books         Tools available to the screenwriter         Collaboration issues         Tips from the pros  RATIONALE  Screenwriting is quickly becoming an extremely popular form of writing, with distinctive differences from novel writing and playwriting. The screenwriting mailing list has very nearly 500 subscribers and features nearly, if not in excess of, 100 posts daily. This forum will serve as a place for those interested in screenwriting to solve problems and share ideas without having to sift through a hundred emails each day.

MAILING LISTS  One mailing list exists:  [email protected]  FUTURE CALL FOR VOTES  After a discussion period of 21-30 days, if there are no overwhelming objections to the proposed group, there will be a Call For Votes (CFV) posted to the same groups aslisted in this RFD. The voting period will be at least 21 days. If the group passes by receiving 100 more YES votes than NO votes and (at least) twice as many YES votes as NO votes, it will be created.

HOW TO VOTE  Send MAIL to:   [email protected] Just Replying should work if you are not reading this on a mailing list.  Your mail message should contain *one* and only one of the following statements.  DO NOT QUOTE THIS CFV IN YOUR VOTE.       I vote YES on misc.writing.screenplays       I vote NO on misc.writing.screenplays       I vote ABSTAIN on misc.writing.screenplays       I CANCEL my vote on misc.writing.screenplays  Neither ABSTAIN nor CANCEL messages are counted as votes; they serve only to cancel any previous vote. Abstentions are noted in the final vote list, whereas CANCEL removes your vote from that list entirely. (This is the only difference between the two.)  Anything else may be rejected by the automatic vote counting program.  The votetaker will respond to your received ballots with a personal acknowledge- ment by mail - if you do not receive one within several days, try again. It's your responsibility to make sure your vote is registered correctly.  If you later change your mind you may vote again; only your last valid vote will count.  Standard Guidelines for voting apply: no more than one vote per person, no more than one vote per account. If you attempt multiple votes or other vote fraud, all your votes may be canceled and your name published.  The complete vote list will be posted with the vote result, including how each person voted. Note that Usenet votes are not done by secret ballot.  There will then be a five-day period during which the published vote list may be corrected and any irregularities addressed. The requirements for group creation are 100 more YES votes than NO votes, and 2/3 of all counted votes being YES.
