I propose that a new group be created for discussion of the works of
J.R.R. Tolkien. This group, rec.arts.books.tolkien, would supersede
the existing "alt.fan.tolkien".

The group would be a forum for discussion about the works in Professor
Tolkien's "Middle-Earth" cycle (including "The Hobbit", "The Lord of
the Rings", and "The Silmarillion") and all his related writings
("Unfinished Tales", "Book of Lost Tales", "Lays of Beleriand",
"History of Middle Earth"...). It would also be open to discussion of
related and supplemental works by other authors (such as the "Atlas of
Middle-Earth").

According to estimates in news.lists, there are roughly 9900 readers
of alt.fan.tolkien worldwide. Roughly 150 articles were posted in the
week of Jan. 23-30, despite the limited number of sites which carry
alt.fan newsgroups. This volume merits a newsgroup in the regular
hierarchy. The topic is one with staying power; Professor Tolkien has
had an enthusiastic (not to say "fanatical") following for several
decades.

This is a call for votes to create a new unmoderated group,
rec.arts.books.tolkien. (The name was determined by a straw poll.)
This post contains information about the proposed group and voting
instructions. The full charter is at the end of this post.

NEWSGROUP

  rec.arts.books.tolkien (unmoderated)

VOTING

  The voting period will begin when this CFV is posted. It will end at
  23:59:59 PST March 19, 1993. Votes must be *received* by the
  deadline. According to the USENET rules, in order for the group to
  be created, at least 2/3 of the votes cast must be "YES" votes, and
  there must be at least 100 more "YES" votes than "NO" votes.

  Votes must be sent to one of the following two addresses:

        [email protected]
	[email protected]

  You may simply "reply" to this posting. Each address can accept both
  "YES" and "NO" votes. Votes posted to any newsgroup will NOT be
  counted.

  The subject line should be an unambiguous "yes" or "no" vote (e.g.
  "I vote {YES,NO} on the creation of rec.arts.books.tolkien as
  proposed"). If the subject line doesn't have such a statement, I
  will check the body of the message for the vote.

  Please include your full name, if your mailer doesn't do this for
  you.

  Conditional statements (e.g. "I would vote YES if...") will be
  considered comments, not votes. If you wish to make comments, you
  are welcome to do so; however, please make sure that your ballot
  begins with an unambiguous vote.

  No more than one vote may come from any one account; you may not
  mail votes on behalf of another person. Each person is permitted to
  vote only once, no matter how many accounts he or she might have. If
  a single person or account sends more than one vote, the vote with
  the latest "sending" time will be the official vote.

  I will attempt to acknowledge every vote via EMail (i.e. "Your NO
  vote against the creation of rec.arts.books.tolkien has been
  received").  There will also be two repeats of this CFV, each of
  which will have a full list of voters (without specifying which way
  they voted).

  If you are unsure whether your vote was received, you may EMail me
  at either of the above addresses. However, I cannot divulge the vote
  tallies until the end of the voting period. I also cannot answer
  questions about the content of the group (other than by mailing a
  copy of the charter).

============================================================

CHARTER 

  rec.arts.books.tolkien (hereinafter referred to as "The Group")
  would be a forum for discussion of all the works of Professor J.R.R.
  Tolkien (hereinafter "JRRT"). It would be open to discussion of his
  "Middle-earth" works, his scholarly writings, his essays and poetry,
  and all other works of JRRT (of whatever nature). The Group would be
  open to discussion at any level; for example, discussion of his
  "Middle-Earth" works could vary from literary criticism to
  philological discussion of the book's languages, or any other topic
  bearing on the works.

  The Group would also be open for discussion of works by other
  authors which relate to JRRT's work (including, but not limited to,
  scholarly criticism of his work, supplemental and speculative
  writings about his worlds, analyses of the various languages created
  by JRRT, and (of course) the elaborate historical material published
  by Christopher Tolkien). The group would be open to discussion about
  art works which are based on Tolkien's works (e.g. graphic
  depictions of scenes from his worlds, musical settings of his
  ballads and poetry).  The group would furthermore be open to
  discussion about JRRT the man, and how the circumstances of his life
  relate to his writing.

  The Group would be open to comparisons of Tolkien's works with those
  of other authors, e.g. comparing the influence of Christianity
  JRRT's writing with its influence on C.S. Lewis's works; comparing
  Sauron with Milton's Satan as a figure of evil; etc.  If such a
  discussion drifted into a discussion of the other author alone (and
  no longer touched on Tolkien), it would no longer be appropriate for
  the Group, and participants would be asked to move the discussion to
  a more appropriate newsgroup, or to EMail.

  Fan fiction would be permitted, provided that it did not violate
  anyone's rights or copyrights (especially the rights and copyrights
  of the Tolkien estate). Posters of fan fiction would be strongly
  encouraged to put the identifying word "FANFIC" in the "subject"
  line (to simplify kill-filing). Satire and parody of Tolkien's work
  would also be permitted. If the poster could reasonably expect
  readers to be offended by the posting, he or she should post it in
  rot-13 encryption (i.e. each letter is mapped to the letter 13
  places on in the alphabet, so that 'a' becomes 'n', 'b' becomes 'o',
  etc.).

  Willful and/or repeated spelling of JRRT's name as "Tolkein" would
  be punished by brutal sarcasm.

This is a call for votes to create a new unmoderated group,
rec.arts.books.tolkien. (The name was determined by a straw poll.)
This post contains information about the proposed group and voting
instructions.

This posting also contains a listing of all people from whom valid
votes have been received (as of 3/9/93). The listing follows the
charter.

One small request: If you vote by "reply"ing to this CFV, *please*,
*please*, *please* don't include this posting. I already have a copy
of it; you don't have to send all 644 lines to me. 

Remember, only those votes *received* by 23:59:59, March 19, 1993 will
be counted. 

NEWSGROUP

  rec.arts.books.tolkien (unmoderated)

VOTING

  The voting period will begin when this CFV is posted. It will end at
  23:59:59 PST March 19, 1993. Votes must be *received* by the
  deadline. According to the USENET rules, in order for the group to
  be created, at least 2/3 of the votes cast must be "YES" votes, and
  there must be at least 100 more "YES" votes than "NO" votes.

  Votes must be sent to one of the following two addresses:

        [email protected]
	[email protected]

  You may simply "reply" to this posting. Each address can accept both
  "YES" and "NO" votes. Votes posted to any newsgroup will NOT be
  counted.

  The subject line should be an unambiguous "yes" or "no" vote (e.g.
  "I vote {YES,NO} on the creation of rec.arts.books.tolkien as
  proposed"). If the subject line doesn't have such a statement, I
  will check the body of the message for the vote.

  Please include your full name.

  Conditional statements (e.g. "I would vote YES if...") will be
  considered comments, not votes. If you wish to make comments, you
  are welcome to do so; however, please make sure that your ballot
  begins with an unambiguous vote.

  No more than one vote may come from any one account; you may not
  mail votes on behalf of another person. Each person is permitted to
  vote only once, no matter how many accounts he or she might have. If
  a single person or account sends more than one vote, the vote with
  the latest "sending" time will be the official vote.

  I will attempt to acknowledge every vote via EMail (i.e. "Your NO
  vote against the creation of rec.arts.books.tolkien has been
  received").  There will also be two repeats of this CFV, each of
  which will have a full list of voters (without specifying which way
  they voted).

  If you are unsure whether your vote was received, you may EMail me
  at either of the above addresses. However, I cannot divulge the vote
  tallies until the end of the voting period. I also cannot answer
  questions about the content of the group (other than by mailing a
  copy of the charter).

============================================================

CHARTER 

  rec.arts.books.tolkien (hereinafter referred to as "The Group")
  would be a forum for discussion of all the works of Professor J.R.R.
  Tolkien (hereinafter "JRRT"). It would be open to discussion of his
  "Middle-earth" works, his scholarly writings, his essays and poetry,
  and all other works of JRRT (of whatever nature). The Group would be
  open to discussion at any level; for example, discussion of his
  "Middle-Earth" works could vary from literary criticism to
  philological discussion of the book's languages, or any other topic
  bearing on the works.

  The Group would also be open for discussion of works by other
  authors which relate to JRRT's work (including, but not limited to,
  scholarly criticism of his work, supplemental and speculative
  writings about his worlds, analyses of the various languages created
  by JRRT, and (of course) the elaborate historical material published
  by Christopher Tolkien). The group would be open to discussion about
  art works which are based on Tolkien's works (e.g. graphic
  depictions of scenes from his worlds, musical settings of his
  ballads and poetry).  The group would furthermore be open to
  discussion about JRRT the man, and how the circumstances of his life
  relate to his writing.

  The Group would be open to comparisons of Tolkien's works with those
  of other authors, e.g. comparing the influence of Christianity
  JRRT's writing with its influence on C.S. Lewis's works; comparing
  Sauron with Milton's Satan as a figure of evil; etc.  If such a
  discussion drifted into a discussion of the other author alone (and
  no longer touched on Tolkien), it would no longer be appropriate for
  the Group, and participants would be asked to move the discussion to
  a more appropriate newsgroup, or to EMail.

  Fan fiction would be permitted, provided that it did not violate
  anyone's rights or copyrights (especially the rights and copyrights
  of the Tolkien estate). Posters of fan fiction would be strongly
  encouraged to put the identifying word "FANFIC" in the "subject"
  line (to simplify kill-filing). Satire and parody of Tolkien's work
  would also be permitted. If the poster could reasonably expect
  readers to be offended by the posting, he or she should post it in
  rot-13 encryption (i.e. each letter is mapped to the letter 13
  places on in the alphabet, so that 'a' becomes 'n', 'b' becomes 'o',
  etc.).

  Willful and/or repeated spelling of JRRT's name as "Tolkein" would
  be punished by brutal sarcasm.

VOTE ACK

  As of 3/9/93, 23:59:59 PST, votes have been received from the
  following people. If you sent a vote much earlier than that, please
  contact me at the voting addresses to make sure your vote was
  received.

  I attempted to send a confirmation notice to everyone who voted. If
  you received a confirmation notice dated on or before 3/9/93 and
  your name is not listed here, please contact me immediately.

  If a name has a question mark (i.e. "John Smith?"), it means the
  post did not include a real name, and I got the name by fingering
  the account.
  
Invalid votes:
-------------
  Some votes were invalid, for various reasons (usually because the
  vote was overly vague). For example, several people sent me messages
  which consisted only of the word "yes" or "no", with no mention of
  the vote or the group name. These messages *could* have been
  intended as votes, but I decided they were invalid.

  I made at least one attempt to contact every person who sent me an
  invalid vote. Most of those people responded with acceptable votes,
  and are listed under the "valid votes" list. Thos who have sent in
  invalid votes and have not yet corrected them are listed here.

Voting has ended for the proposed unmoderated newsgroup
rec.arts.books.tolkien. The vote tally was 488 YES votes and 109 NO
votes, which is sufficient for newsgroup creation. Details follow.

This post consists of:
  A summary and explanation of the results
  An explanation of what happens next
  A repost of the group's charter
  A list of voters, divided into YES and NO, sorted by mailing address
  A list of invalid votes

RESULTS:

  In order for a newsgroup to be created, the YES votes must outnumber
  the NO votes by at least 2 to 1, and the number of YES votes must
  exceed the number of NO votes by at least 100.

  Number of valid YES votes received:	488
  Number of valid NO votes received:	109
  YES-NO vote difference:		379 (> 100)
  Ratio of YES to NO votes:		4.5 (> 2)

  This is adequate for newsgroup creation.

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT:

  The group will not be created immediately. The USENET group creation
  guidelines call for a 5-day waiting period after the results are
  posted, during which time people can raise any appropriate
  objections to the vote. 

  If no irregularities are found which would invalidate the vote, and
  if the margin of YES votes remains adequate for group creation, the
  moderator of news.announce.newgroups will send out a control message
  to create the newsgroup.

  The group will follow the charter which was posted in the CFV. A
  copy of that charter follows.

CHARTER:

  rec.arts.books.tolkien (hereinafter referred to as "The Group")
  would be a forum for discussion of all the works of Professor J.R.R.
  Tolkien (hereinafter "JRRT"). It would be open to discussion of his
  "Middle-earth" works, his scholarly writings, his essays and poetry,
  and all other works of JRRT (of whatever nature). The Group would be
  open to discussion at any level; for example, discussion of his
  "Middle-Earth" works could vary from literary criticism to
  philological discussion of the book's languages, or any other topic
  bearing on the works.

  The Group would also be open for discussion of works by other
  authors which relate to JRRT's work (including, but not limited to,
  scholarly criticism of his work, supplemental and speculative
  writings about his worlds, analyses of the various languages created
  by JRRT, and (of course) the elaborate historical material published
  by Christopher Tolkien). The group would be open to discussion about
  art works which are based on Tolkien's works (e.g. graphic
  depictions of scenes from his worlds, musical settings of his
  ballads and poetry).  The group would furthermore be open to
  discussion about JRRT the man, and how the circumstances of his life
  relate to his writing.

  The Group would be open to comparisons of Tolkien's works with those
  of other authors, e.g. comparing the influence of Christianity
  JRRT's writing with its influence on C.S. Lewis's works; comparing
  Sauron with Milton's Satan as a figure of evil; etc.  If such a
  discussion drifted into a discussion of the other author alone (and
  no longer touched on Tolkien), it would no longer be appropriate for
  the Group, and participants would be asked to move the discussion to
  a more appropriate newsgroup, or to EMail.

  Fan fiction would be permitted, provided that it did not violate
  anyone's rights or copyrights (especially the rights and copyrights
  of the Tolkien estate). Posters of fan fiction would be strongly
  encouraged to put the identifying word "FANFIC" in the "subject"
  line (to simplify kill-filing). Satire and parody of Tolkien's work
  would also be permitted. If the poster could reasonably expect
  readers to be offended by the posting, he or she should post it in
  rot-13 encryption (i.e. each letter is mapped to the letter 13
  places on in the alphabet, so that 'a' becomes 'n', 'b' becomes 'o',
  etc.).

  Willful and/or repeated spelling of JRRT's name as "Tolkein" would
  be punished by brutal sarcasm.

==========

LIST OF VOTERS:

  The voters are sorted by mailing address. If a voter's name ends with
  a question mark (e.g. "Suzy Cobol?") it means the mail did not have
  the user's full name, and I found the name out by fingering the
  account. 

YES votes (488)
