                            REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION


  Group Name:  rec.arts.ascii
      Status:  moderated (Bob Allison)
     Summary:  Newsgroup covering the creation, viewing and archiving of
               ASCII art, and the artists who create it.


   This is the Request For Discussion (RFD) on the creation of a new Usenet
newsgroup: rec.arts.ascii.  The rec.arts.* hierarchy already exists.  This is
NOT a call for votes.  Barring a need for a 2nd RFD, the Call For Votes (CFV)
will be posted approximately 21 to 30 days from now.

   ASCII art is a form of graphics and art made by using standard keyboard
letters, numbers, punctuation and symbols such as:

               / \ | - _ + = # . , : ^ ' ` " ~ % @ < > ( ) [ ] { }

   This RFD has been posted to news.announce.newgroups, news.groups,
alt.ascii-art, alt.binaries.pictures.ascii on April 7, 1994.  All follow-ups
should be posted to news.groups.

   This RFD has been posted in accordance with the 'Requirements For Group
Creation' in 'Guidelines For Usenet Group Creation'.  If you have questions,
this document is regularly posted to news.announce.newusers with the subject
line: 'How to Create a New Usenet Newsgroup'.


                                GROUP CHARTER
 
   The new group rec.arts.ascii will be the appropriate group for postings to
include, but not be limited to, the following:

   o  All forms of ASCII art including, but not limited to:
      -  Standard ASCII art.
      -  Animations.
      -  ANSI color graphics.

   o  Discussion about pieces of art.

   o  Requests for specific pieces of art, and their fulfillment.

   o  Questions and answers covering:
      -  Creating and viewing ASCII art.
      -  Locating FTP sites for ASCII art and related files

   o  Discussion about artists in the field.


                                  RATIONALE

   The group rec.arts.ascii would serve a useful purpose to the Net for the
following reasons:

   o  ASCII art is the only type of graphics that are easily transmitted and
      instantly viewable on any terminal or communications software.  If you
      can view text from the Net, you can view ASCII art (as it is made up
      of standard text characters).  No conversion or special software
      required to view.

   o  ASCII art is also the most compact form of graphics.  An ASCII picture
      can easily be less than 1 K.  In cases where resolution is not an
      issue, an ASCII graphic can take the place of a bitmap, eps, or gif of
      20, 50, 100 or more K!

   o  The existing groups alt.ascii-art and alt.binaries.pictures.ascii have
      served well as proving grounds and attest to the usefulness and
      popularity of this form of graphics and art.  It is time for
      rec.arts.ascii to better serve Net users.

   ASCII art can be used to for many things, among them are:

   o  Education (a periodic table or molecular model for example).

   o  Cross cultural communication (pictures are international).

   o  BBS & server login screens, etc.

   o  Entertainment (like a birthday 'card', holiday greetings, invitations,
      congradulatory messages, children's picture stories, etc).

   o  Visual aid (such as a wiring diagram, floor plan, illustrated
      instructions, or flow chart) to eliminate a long involved explanation
      with a graphic, such as:

       _______________        _____________
      |               |      /             \
      |     INPUT     | --> |   PROCESS A   |
      |_______________|      \_____________/
              |                     |
              v                     v
        _____________         _____________        ________________
       /             \  <--  /             \      |                |
      |   PROCESS C   |     |   PROCESS C   | --> |     OUTPUT     |
       \_____________/  -->  \_____________/      |________________|


   The main purpose of the moderator is to handle the constant flow of
frequently asked questions (despite the FAQ posted weekly).  This need would
be even greater with the estimated increase in traffic for rec.arts.ascii
over the existing alt groups.  The moderator would send a FAQ to posters of
frequently asked questions, and also redirect the posters of inappropriate
items to the proper groups.
