From [email protected] Thu Dec 10 18:20:22 1992 Path: uunet!bounce-back From: [email protected] (Emiliano (Tony) Dias) Newsgroups: news.announce.newgroups,news.groups,, Subject: RFD: Followup-To: news.groups Date: 9 Dec 1992 17:38:14 -0500 Organization: Lines: 71 Sender: [email protected] Approved: [email protected] Message-ID: <[email protected]> NNTP-Posting-Host: Xref: uunet news.announce.newgroups:3042 news.groups:62767  This is a formal Request For Discussion regarding the establishment of a  newsgroup to deal with the sale and trade of video games consoles, video  games cartridges, video game compact discs and various video game  paraphernalia.  This announcement is cross posted to, news.groups and  news.announce.newsgroups; the follow-up discussion will take place in  "news.groups".  Suggestions, comments and problems may also be emailed  to me at [email protected], [email protected]  After  December 31, I would like all comments emailed to [email protected]   REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION  NEWSGROUP  PURPOSE       A group where members of the USENET community may trade or sale  video game related equipment (e.g. cartridges, consoles and cd-rom  games.)  RATIONALE       Currently offers for the selling and trading are posted in  Because of the large amount of traffic in pertaining to hints on how to play video games, reviews of different video  games and discussions of the merits of different video game systems, it  is often hard to find video game items that are being placed for sale or  trade.  CONTENT       This newsgroup will consist mainly of offers for video game equipment  and requests for specific video game equipment.  Offers from dealers will  not be allowed in this newsgroup and will be greatly discouraged.  UNMODERATED will not be moderated.         A Frequently Asked Questions ( FAQ ) file will be maintained by  "[email protected]" and will be posted monthly.  The FAQ will  remind readers of the newsgroup of the purpose of the newsgroup and the  policies regarding it.  The FAQ will also make suggestions on how sales  between USENET members should be conducted and will tell people what  to do if they feel that they have been "cheated" by another reader of the  newsgroup.  Finally, anyone who has "cheated" anyone else will have their  name posted in the FAQ until they have proven themselves to be  trustworthy;  this will be done to discourage transactions with USENET  members who have proven themselves to be untrustworthy.  NEWSGROUP CREATION        The discussion period will be begin when this notice is posted and will  end roughly four weeks after the posting.       PLEASE post all discussion of the proposed newsgroup to  "news.groups".       If a consensus is reached by the end of the discussion period, a Call  FOR VOTES (CFV) will be posted at that time.  The voting period will last  for 30 days.  I am looking for a volunteer to handle the vote-taking (if a CFV occurs),  because I am biased in favor of the creation of this newsgroup.
