This classification is quite wide, and the bulk of the items for trade can be easily classified into two groups.  The first group is recordings of music, while the second group is equipment for the creation of music. The volume of posts of either type is consistently moderate and comparable to each other.   SUGGESTION:  The suggestion is to create two new groups,  REC.MUSIC.MARKETPLACE.EQUIPMENT    This group will be for buying and selling used musical equipment, such   as synthesizers, guitars, band instruments, audio effects processors,   recording equipment, DJ equipment, etc.  All subject headings should be   prefaced by either FOR SALE: or WANTED:   REC.MUSIC.MARKETPLACE.RECORDINGS    This group will be for buying and selling used musical recordings, such   as compact discs, vinyl records, cassette tapes, rare recordings, music   videos, etc.  All subject headings should be prefaced by either FOR SALE:   or WANTED:  REC.MUSIC.MARKETPLACE would then be eliminated.   All these newsgroups will be UNMODERATED.   RATIONALE:  An informal vote, culled from the responses to the suggestion of splitting, was 7 posts for, 0 against.  The people responding said that they were either looking for equipment but not compact discs, or they were looking for compact discs but not equipment.  The two types of items for trade are very different and there should be no ambiguity whether an item is a recording or piece of equipment.  A rough overview of the last 3 days of posting break down as follows:    10 Synths for Sale or Wanted   10 Recording Equipment or Effects Processors for Sale or Wanted    5 Other Music equipment       17 Recordings Wanted   25 Recordings for Sale    21 Unnecessary Postings and Flames      Sincerely submitted,   Mark Lakata  NOTE: All subsequent discussion on this proposal should take place        in NEWS.GROUPS or at least cross-posted to it.

Submitted by: T. P. Uschanov <[email protected]>                                        <[email protected]>     This is a formal Request for Discussion (RFD) for the creation of the  unmoderated newsgroup rec.collecting.records.   Follow up to news.groups please.   CHARTER =======  rec.collecting.records is intended to be an unmoderated newsgroup for buying, selling, trading, and exchange of information, ideas and opinions regarding records and collecting them, mainly vinyl albums and singles, but not excluding 78 rpm records or compact discs of older or rare material.  Topics of discussion will include but are not limited to:  * Buying			* Restoration, storage and preservation * Selling			* Research * Trading			* Reviews of books on and re-issues of vintage * Queries about the values,       music   provenance and authenticity   * Queries about the recommendability of   of unfamiliar records           records and dealers   The discussions will be in English.    RATIONALE =========   After the period of the alleged 'demise' of vinyl records caused by the introduction of the compact disc, there is now an increasing interest in analog sound carriers from the past and the present, and the interest has never been low, as the popularity of specialist magazines such as _Goldmine_ and _DISCoveries_ shows.  There are currently several newsgroups in which discussion of records takes place, but none of them is quite what is needed.  alt.rock-n-roll.classic and alt.rock-n-roll.oldies are for all kinds of discussion on 'classic' rock and music of the 1950s and 1960s, respectively.  rec.antiques.radio+phono is mainly for technical questions of radios and phonographs, and the records sometimes discussed there are invariably 78 rpm.  rec.collecting is a forum for collectors, but it is too large and varied to justify the idea of doing the record collecting discussion there.  The most controversial related group is rec.music.marketplace.  This RFD is the direct result of recent discussion there concerning the lack of a vinyl newsgroup; it was felt that there were many people reading r.m.m who had no interest in buying or selling compact discs (much of them of contemporary material) and/or musical instruments (for which there also is the little-known newsgroup rec.music.makers.marketplace).  Furthermore, r.m.m is pretty much restricted for buying and selling only, and is therefore inappropriate for questions and discussion.  When I recently proposed newsgroup alt.collecting.records and announced my proposal on several of the groups mentioned above, I got more than 100 follow-up postings and personal replies, many of them radiating enthusiasm, and challenging my fears that a rec.* group would not pass (the reason I proposed an alt.* group first).   This RFD will be posted on the following newsgroups:           news.groups         news.announce.newgroups         alt.rock-n-roll.classic         alt.rock-n-roll.oldies 	rec.antiques.radio+phono 	rec.collecting 	rec.music.marketplace         rec.music.misc   The discussion will be held in news.groups. The discussion will start November 25, 1994, and will last for three weeks, until December 16, 1994. If there is enough interest in the newsgroup, a Call for Votes (CFV) will  be posted shortly after the end of the discussion period. The voting will  be conducted by an neutral third party.

Follow up to news.groups please.  CHARTER =======  rec.collecting.recordings is intended to be an unmoderated newsgroup for buying, selling, trading, and exchange of information, ideas and opinions regarding sound recordings and collecting them, mainly vinyl albums and singles, but not excluding 78 rpm records, tapes (also of recordings never released on disc, or commercially at all) or compact discs of older or rare material.  Topics of discussion will include but are not limited to:  * Buying                           * Restoration, storage and preservation * Selling                          * Research * Trading discs and tapes of them  * Reviews of books on and re-issues of * Queries about the values,          vintage music   provenance and authenticity      * Queries about the recommendability of   of unfamiliar recordings           recordings and dealers of them  The discussions will be in English.   RATIONALE =========  After the period of the alleged 'demise' of vinyl records caused by the introduction of the compact disc, there is now an increasing interest in analog sound carriers from the past and the present, and the interest has never been low, as the popularity of specialist magazines such as _Goldmine_ and _DISCoveries_ shows.

Then there is rec.music.marketplace.  Various initiatives for a group for vinyl records have been made there in recent months by readers not interested in the majority of the postings there concerning compact discs of contemporary pop music and musical instruments, and in late 1994 I submitted a RFD for a group named rec.collecting.records.  Owing to communication breakdowns and also partly the holiday season, a Call for Votes (CFV) never appeared, despite considerable support for the group.  A while ago I communicated with Big 7 administrators who suggested a new RFD with a slightly modified name and charter -- this including recorded sound in its all forms.  The majority of postings is however expected to come from collectors of vinyl records of popular and classical music.  A proposal that compacts discs be excluded got some support from commentators on the RFD for rec.collecting.records, but I feel that it would be increasingly artificial in these days when CDs gain more and more ground in collecting older music, judging by, for example, their coverage in record collecting magazines. Following another suggestion by some older collectors and restricting the group to 78 rpm records would restrict the group's appeal and traffic even more -- and rec.antiques.radio+phono and the 78-L mailing list are already available for those who concentrate on them.   This RFD will be posted on the following newsgroups:          news.groups         news.announce.newgroups         alt.rock-n-roll.oldies         rec.antiques.radio+phono         rec.collecting 	rec.music.classical.recordings         rec.music.marketplace         rec.music.misc   The discussion will be held in news.groups. The discussion will start February 10, 1995, and will last for three weeks, until March 3, 1995. If there is enough interest in the newsgroup, a Call for Votes (CFV) will be posted shortly after the end of the discussion period. The voting will be conducted by an neutral third party.

These two proposals are closely related in theme, form, and intended audience, so they are being proposed together, to wit:      CREATE rec.music.collecting.vinyl     RENAME rec.music.cd to rec.music.collecting.cd     CREATE rec.music.collecting.misc      CREATE rec.music.marketplace.vinyl     CREATE rec.music.marketplace.cd     RENAME rec.music.marketplace to rec.music.marketplace.misc  This proposal will undergo discussion in news.groups for 21 days after the first posting of this announcement, to be followed by a Call For Votes (CFV) on the proposal.  *All* discussion of this proposal must take place in news.groups; to follow and participate in the discussion you must read that group.  This RFD is initially being posted to the following newsgroups:      news.announce.newgroups, news.groups, rec.music.misc,     rec.music.marketplace, rec.music.cd, rec.collecting,     rec.antiques.radio+phono, alt.rock-n-roll  RATIONALE --------- There is significant demand for a place on the net where collectors of vinyl LPs, singles, and other releases can discuss the format without being "drowned out" by unrelated postings.  rec.music.collecting.vinyl will fill that niche, and rec.music.collecting.cd is, we feel, an appropriate counterpart.  (More about r.m.c.cd below.)  There has also been significant support for discussion of pre-LP collecting (78s, wax cylinders, etc.); a .misc group is therefore proposed to hold that and other non-CD/vinyl discussion.  It should also be kept in mind that despite its technical nature, rec.antiques.radio+phono would welcome posts about pre-LP records.  rec.music.marketplace is long overdue for a split; many people interested in buying music over the net prefer one of the two primary formats (vinyl and CDs) over the other.  There have been many complaints from collectors of one format about having to "wade through" postings selling the other. We believe that the natural dividing line for a split is .cd/.vinyl/.misc, as proposed.  rec.music.cd is at the heart of both aspects of the proposal; the group was created in the early days of the format, when compact discs were something special rather than the default format that they have become today.  The newsgroup is devolving into a catch-all for general music discussion, and in our opinion less than half of the group's current traffic belongs there.  People tend to post general comments about the latest releases there, simply because they happen to be available on CD. A recent check of the news spool at rt66.com revealed that the 275 messages available on the machine at the time broke down roughly as follows:     40%  CD-specific discussion (CD clubs, availability/quality questions,         etc.)    30%  Wanted/Forsale postings (officially off-topic since the creation         of rec.music.marketplace)    30%  Off-topic messages ("who sings this," "tell me more bands like ",         general discussion of artists/music, etc. appropriate for         rec.music.misc and other more specific rec.music.* and alt.music.*         groups)  In our opinion the creation of CD-specific groups for collecting and marketplace topics will help bring the noise level down.  CD-specific discussion would go to rec.music.collecting.cd, wanted/forsale postings would go to rec.music.marketplace.cd, and off-topic messages would be (we hope) discouraged by the two groups' more specific names.  CHARTERS --------     rec.music.collecting.cd         Discussion of issues relevant to collectors of audio compact discs.         Postings belong here only if they have some direct bearing on the         CD format -- the mere availability on CD of a given release is *not*         sufficient reason to discuss it here, unless the item is only         available on CD, a CD reissue, has CD-only features, etc.  The         group is also not for discussion of musical quality, how much you         like an album, and so forth, as none of these questions are specific         to the CD format.  Wanted and for-sale postings are off-charter here         and should be directed to the most appropriate rec.music.marketplace         group.      rec.music.collecting.vinyl         Discussion of issues relevant to collectors of vinyl LPs, singles,         and related recording formats.  Wanted and for-sale postings are         off-charter here and should be directed to the most appropriate         rec.music.marketplace group.      rec.music.collecting.misc         Discussion of music-collecting issues for which there is no more         specific rec.music.collecting newsgroup.

HOW TO VOTE  You must send MAIL to [email protected]  (Posting in a newsgroup does not constitute a vote.)  Just replying to this article should work unless you are reading it on a mailing list, but please check the TO address.  Please remove text before the marker line below.  Voting mail is archived by the votetakers, and hundreds of copies of the entire CFV wastes space.  Type your vote of YES or NO for each group on the line for that group. If you do not wish to vote for a group, simply leave that line alone. You need not worry about quoting characters which your mailer inserts. Please type YES or NO, not Y, N, or X.  The votes are tabulated by a program, and a valid vote is defined as the word YES or NO on the same line as the name of the group.  You may also ABSTAIN in place of YES/NO - this will not affect the outcome. 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 is your responsibility to make sure your vote is registered correctly.  Only one vote per person, no more than one vote per account.  Addresses and votes of all voters will be published in the final voting results list.  -=-=-=-=-=- Don't Delete Anything Between These Lines =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- rec.music.collecting/marketplace reorg  (Don't remove this marker)  Please give your real name here:  [Your Vote]  Group ----------------------------------------------------------------------- [         ]  rec.music.collecting.cd (replaces rec.music.cd) [         ]  rec.music.collecting.misc [         ]  rec.music.collecting.vinyl [         ]  rec.music.marketplace.cd [         ]  rec.music.marketplace.misc (replaces rec.music.marketplace) [         ]  rec.music.marketplace.vinyl -=-=-=-=-=- Don't Delete Anything Between These Lines =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-  This CFV will be sent to the following mailing lists: BLUES-L <[email protected]> BOMP-L <[email protected]> 78-L <[email protected]>  From [email protected] Thu Jul 27 20:25:37 1995 Path: uunet!bounce-back From: [email protected] (Steve Bonine) Newsgroups: news.announce.newgroups,news.groups,rec.music.misc,rec.music.marketplace,rec.music.cd,rec.collecting,rec.antiques.radio+phono,alt.music.alternative,alt.rock-n-roll Subject: 2nd CFV: rec.music.{collecting,marketplace} reorganization Followup-To: poster Date: 28 Jul 1995 00:25:08 -0000 Organization: Usenet Volunteer Votetakers Lines: 166 Sender: [email protected] Approved: [email protected] Expires: 11 Aug 1995 00:00:00 GMT Message-ID: <[email protected]> Reply-To: [email protected] NNTP-Posting-Host: rodan.uu.net Archive-Name: rec.music.marketplace-reorg Xref: uunet news.announce.newgroups:7232 news.groups:161625 rec.music.misc:184515 rec.music.marketplace:42396 rec.music.cd:59755 rec.collecting:49204 rec.antiques.radio+phono:9722 alt.music.alternative:222691 alt.rock-n-roll:84318                        LAST CALL FOR VOTES (of 2)   unmoderated group rec.music.collecting.cd (replaces rec.music.cd)              unmoderated group rec.music.collecting.misc              unmoderated group rec.music.collecting.vinyl               unmoderated group rec.music.marketplace.cd unmoderated group rec.music.marketplace.misc (replaces rec.music.marketplace)             unmoderated group rec.music.marketplace.vinyl  Newsgroups lines: rec.music.collecting.cd Compact discs of collector value. rec.music.collecting.misc       Music collecting other than vinyl or CD. rec.music.collecting.vinyl      Collecting vinyl records. rec.music.marketplace.cd        Buying and selling collectible compact discs. rec.music.marketplace.misc      Buying and selling non-vinyl/CD music. rec.music.marketplace.vinyl     Buying and selling collectible vinyl records.

RATIONALE  There is significant demand for a place on the net where collectors of vinyl LPs, singles, and other releases can discuss the format without being "drowned out" by unrelated postings.  rec.music.collecting.vinyl will fill that niche, and rec.music.collecting.cd is, we feel, an appropriate counterpart.  (More about r.m.c.cd below.)  There has also been significant support for discussion of pre-LP collecting (78s, wax cylinders, etc.); a .misc group is therefore proposed to hold that and other non-CD/vinyl discussion.  rec.music.marketplace is long overdue for a split; many people interested in buying music over the net prefer one of the two primary formats (vinyl and CDs) over the other.  There have been many complaints from collectors of one format about having to "wade through" postings selling the other. We believe that the natural dividing line for a split is .cd/.vinyl/.misc, as proposed.  rec.music.cd is at the heart of both aspects of the proposal; the group was created in the early days of the format, when compact discs were something special rather than the default format that they have become today.  The newsgroup is devolving into a catch-all for general music discussion, and in our opinion less than half of the group's current traffic belongs there.  People tend to post general comments about the latest releases there, simply because they happen to be available on CD. A recent check of the news spool at rt66.com revealed that the 275 messages available on the machine at the time broke down roughly as follows:     40%  CD-specific discussion (CD clubs, availability/quality questions,         etc.)    30%  Wanted/Forsale postings (officially off-topic since the creation         of rec.music.marketplace)    30%  Off-topic messages ("who sings this," "tell me more bands like ",         general discussion of artists/music belonging to rec.music.misc         and/or specific rec.music.* and alt.music.* groups, etc.)  In our opinion the creation of CD-specific groups for collecting and marketplace topics will help bring the noise level down.  CD-specific discussion would go to rec.music.collecting.cd, wanted/forsale postings would go to rec.music.marketplace.cd, and off-topic messages would be (we hope) discouraged by the two groups' more specific names.  CHARTERS      rec.music.collecting.cd         Discussion of issues relevant to collectors of audio compact discs.         Postings belong here only if they have some direct bearing on the         CD format -- the mere availability on CD of a given release is *not*         sufficient reason to discuss it here, unless the item is only         available on CD, a CD reissue, has CD-only features, etc.  The         group is also not for discussion of musical quality, how much you         like an album, and so forth, as none of these questions are specific         to the CD format.  Wanted and for-sale postings are off-charter here         and should be directed to the most appropriate rec.music.marketplace         group.      rec.music.collecting.vinyl         Discussion of issues relevant to collectors of vinyl LPs, singles,         and related recording formats.
