Group Name:  rec.mag.dargon                   Status:  unmoderated             Distribution:  worldwide                  Summary:  DargonZine e-magazine issues and discussion              Proposed by:  Ornoth D.A. Liscomb                            <[email protected]>   Charter ------- Rec.mag.dargon will be used both for the distribution of DargonZine, an electronic magazine, and also for open public discussion of the magazine's content.  DargonZine prints fiction produced by aspiring amateur writers who are members of the Dargon Project, which has been active since 1985. Dargon Project stories are all set in a shared medieval fantasy setting (a la "Thieves' World"). "Dargon" refers to the town and surrounding lands where most stories take place, as well as the surname of the area's ruling family. DargonZine has worldwide distribution.   Discussion ---------- Discussion of this proposed group will take place on news.groups starting at the time of this posting and will continue for a minimum of three weeks from that date.   Vote ---- Assuming the discussion merits a vote, a Call For Votes will be conducted by neutral third parties after the discussion period has ended. No votes will be accepted prior to the start of the CFV. A neutral third party will administer the vote.   Crossposting ------------ This RFD is crossposted to the following groups:    news.announce.newgroups   news.groups   rec.mag   rec.mag.fsfnet   rec.arts.sf.written   misc.writing   [email protected]  The CFV will be crossposted to the same groups, plus the DargonZine distribution list.   Rationale --------- Starting with the existing newsgroup rec.mag.fsfnet, the proposal should be thought of in two parts: removal of the existing moderation, and renaming the newsgroup. Although there are two distinct changes taking place, they will be voted on as a single proposal.  Rec.mag.fsfnet was originally created with the intent to serve solely as a moderated distribution vehicle for issues. At present, the only articles posted to the newsgroup are issues of DargonZine as they are published. However, the Dargon Project writers would like to remove the moderation from the newsgroup so that it can be opened up for reader feedback and exchange of opinions and ideas between the readership and the writers.  However, we would also like to take this opportunity to change the name of the newsgroup. The Dargon Project first began publishing stories in FSFnet, an electronic magazine that ran from 1984 through 1988, during which time the newsgroup rec.msg.fsfnet was created. When FSFnet's editor graduated and left the network, the new editor began putting out issues under the name DargonZine. Because FSFnet has been defunct for over five years and could be confused with the Free Software Foundation, it is appropriate that we change the newsgroup name to something more recognizable. Our readers would immediately associate rec.mag.dargon with the Dargon Project and DargonZine.  However, should we ever choose to change the name of our publication again, we propose that the new newsgroup be called rec.mag.dargon rather than rec.mag.dargonzine. This will allow us to avoid ever having to rename the newsgroup again, no matter what we name the publication.  Please direct all discussion to news.groups.
