    Well, the discussion has reached news.groups, and probably a litte
sooner than we would have liked. But since the discussion has already
started we will need to put a time limit on it. So hear it is, and if we
are lucky we might actually get something out of all of this besides a 6
month wait period.
    The proposal is to reorg rec.arts.comics and change it into a more
mainstream UseNet hierarchy. This hierarchy was started when the group
r.a.c.marketplace was created last year, and has continued with
r.a.c.strips. It has also gotten a lot of attention during the recent
rec.arts.manga debate, but I won't go into that here, except to mention
that there will not be a manga group proposed in this reorg because the
Straw Poll results have come back and rec.arts.manga got more votes.
Consideration for a manga group will of course be given if the proposed
rec.arts.manga fails it's CFV. Now, on to the groups...

[-----------------------]

Name: rec.arts.comics.superhero
Status: unmoderated
Draft Charter:
    This group will be for the discussion of comic books whose main
focus are Super Heros. A Super Hero (or Super Villain)can best be
described as a person with greatly enhanced abilities that sets him or
her apart from normal society (many think above said society). Examples
of a Super Hero comic book are: X-Men, Avengers, Spiderman, Justice
League of America, Superman, Batman, Younblood, and John Byrne's Next
Men.

Name: rec.arts.comics.info
Status: moderated?
Draft Charter:
    This group is basically modeled after the rec.arts.startrek.info
newsgroup. It is for posts of an informative nature. Reviews, convention
announcements, and other information from the comic book world would
find their home in this group. It is intended to be a non-discussion,
all signal informative group. One of the questions to be answered for
this group is whether or not it should be moderated.

Name: rec.arts.comics.misc
Status: unmoderated
Draft Charter:
    This group is basically the group that is currently known as
rec.arts.comics. The idea being that the group will be renamed to
r.a.c.misc and handle comic book discussions that aren't covered by the
charters of the other groups in the rec.arts.comics.* hierarchy.

Draft Charter:
    This group will be for the discussion of comic books whose main
focus is on Super Heros and Super Heroic themes. A Super Hero (or
Villain) is best described as someone who's talents and abilites are
seen as being outside the norm and is thus set apart from society
because of those abilites. The main characters of these book usually lead
double lives in an attempt to keep some semblance of normality, and
often wear costumes to hide their true identities. Super Hero books are
also seen has having a larger than life feel to them. The themes within
the books often deal with saving a country, planet, solar system, and
sometimes the universe itself.  Examples of a Super Hero comic book are:
X-Men, Avengers, Spiderman, Justice League of America, Superman, Batman,
Younblood, and John Byrne's Next Men.

is asked of the poster that s/he split up the review into articles that
pertain to only one of the discussion groups so that followups can be
correctly set. Reviews or opinions of a single title should be seriously
considered before posting, unless said single review is from a larger
review that was split into parts.

    Some consideration might also be given to effect some kind of
standard grading scale, but this probably isn't really necessary.

    This is the third Call For Votes for the rec.arts.comics.* reorg.
The pupose of this vote is to change rec.arts.comics into a hierarchy
that more closely follows the current UseNet trends, and to also split off
a couple of self-contained topics into their own group. 
    The vote for this reorg will last until 00:01 EST Friday, June 19.
Please remember that ONLY VOTES MAILED TO THE CORRECT ADDRESS AND WHICH
FOLLOW THE FORMAT OF THE BALLOT WILL BE COUNTED. All votes mailed to me
that do not follow the ballot will have the ballot mailed back to the
sender.

    To vote, you need to mail a ballot to Comics.Vote@Dartmouth.Edu, or
reply to this message, and then change the ?'s on the ballot to either Y,
N or A to indicate either a Yes, No or Abstain on each of the 4 separate
votes.

    Currently there have been 247 votes tallied by me as of the posting
of this article, the names of these voters will appear at the end of
this post, following the charters. All of the votes that I have
received, minus a couple of duplicate votes, are shown below. If you
sent in a vote, and you don't see your name, then you will need to send

? Vote #4: Create rec.arts.comics.xbooks

-- End Ballot --

    All that is needed for the vote is the text that is within the CUT
lines. If you cannot use the ballot as it is included here, please make

---------------------------------------
Name: rec.arts.comics.misc 
Status: unmoderated 
Charter:
    This group is basically the group that is currently known as
rec.arts.comics. The idea being that the group will be renamed to
r.a.c.misc and handle comic book discussions that aren't covered by the
charters of the other groups in the rec.arts.comics.* hierarchy.

Name: rec.arts.comics.info
Status: Moderated - moderated by hades@Dartmouth.Edu 
Charter:
    This group is basically modeled after the rec.arts.startrek.info
newsgroup. It is for posts of an informative nature. Reviews, convention
announcements, and other information from the comic book world would
find their home in this group. It is intended to be a non-discussion,
all signal informative group. Reviews submitted to r.a.c.info can be
>from any of the r.a.c.* discussion groups, but it is asked of the poster
that s/he split up the review into articles that pertain to only one of
the discussion groups so that followups can be correctly directed.
Reviews or opinions of a single title should be seriously considered
before posting, unless said single review is from a larger review that
was split into parts.

Name: rec.arts.comics.superhero
Status: unmoderated
Charter:
    This group will be for the discussion of comic books and characters
whose main focus are Super Heros and Super Heroic themes. A Super Hero
(or Villain) is best described as an entity who's talents and abilites
are seen as being outside the norm and is thus set apart from normal
society because of them. The main characters of these book usually lead
double lives in an attempt to keep some semblance of normality, and
often wear costumes to hide their true identities. Super Hero books are
also seen has having a 'larger than life' feel to them. The themes
within these books usually revolve around the Heros saving the world
(and somtimes the Universe) from Evil (Super Villains) many times ending
in large scale battles. Examples of a Super Hero comic book are:
Avengers, Spiderman, Justice League of America, Superman, Batman,
Younblood, and John Byrne's Next Men.

Name: rec.arts.comics.xbooks
Status: unmoderated
Charter:
    This group is for the discussion of those characters, and books that
are part of Marvel Comics' Mutant Universe. Currently the regular Marvel
titles that are part of this Universe are Uncanny X-Men, X-Men, X-Force,
X-Factor, Wolverine, and Excaliber. Discussions on stories pertaining to
the Mutant Universe that appear in anthology titles, such as Marvel
Comics presents, should also be posted in this group. It should be noted
that all of the books mentioned above are Super Hero books, but comprise
their own self-contained discussions that have been a large part of
rec.arts.comics since its creation. These books are also responsible for
a consistent level posting that indicates a need for a separate
discussion group within the hierarchy.

newsgroup. It is for posts of an informative nature. Reviews, convention
announcements, and other information from the comic book world would
find their home in this group. It is intended to be a non-discussion,
all signal informative group. Reviews submitted to r.a.c.info can be
>from any of the r.a.c.* discussion groups, but it is asked of the poster
that s/he split up the review into articles that pertain to only one of
the discussion groups so that followups can be correctly directed.
Reviews or opinions of a single title should be seriously considered
before posting, unless said single review is from a larger review that
was split into parts.

Name: rec.arts.comics.superhero
Status: unmoderated
Charter:
    This group will be for the discussion of comic books and characters
whose main focus are Super Heros and Super Heroic themes. A Super Hero
(or Villain) is best described as an entity who's talents and abilites
are seen as being outside the norm and is thus set apart from normal
society because of them. The main characters of these book usually lead
double lives in an attempt to keep some semblance of normality, and
often wear costumes to hide their true identities. Super Hero books are
also seen has having a 'larger than life' feel to them. The themes
within these books usually revolve around the Heros saving the world
(and somtimes the Universe) from Evil (Super Villains) many times ending
in large scale battles. Examples of a Super Hero comic book are:
Avengers, Spiderman, Justice League of America, Superman, Batman,
Younblood, and John Byrne's Next Men.

Name: rec.arts.comics.xbooks
Status: unmoderated
Charter:
    This group is for the discussion of those characters, and books that
are part of Marvel Comics' Mutant Universe. Currently the regular Marvel
titles that are part of this Universe are Uncanny X-Men, X-Men, X-Force,
X-Factor, Wolverine, and Excaliber. Discussions on stories pertaining to
the Mutant Universe that appear in anthology titles, such as Marvel
Comics presents, should also be posted in this group. It should be noted
that all of the books mentioned above are Super Hero books, but comprise
their own self-contained discussions that have been a large part of
rec.arts.comics since its creation. These books are also responsible for
a consistent level posting that indicates a need for a separate
discussion group within the hierarchy.

    These are the results for the Rec.Arts.Comics.* reorg. This is going
to be as short and to-the-point as I can make it....

    The votes were for:
	Vote #1: Rename rec.arts.comics to rec.arts.comics.misc
	Vote #2: Create rec.arts.comics.info, moderated
	Vote #3: Create rec.arts.comics.superhero
	Vote #4: Create rec.arts.comics.xbooks


    ... and the outcome of those votes are as follows:
	Vote 1: 193 to 92...margin 101, percent in favor 67.719298
	Vote 2: 223 to 65...margin 158, percent in favor 77.430556
	Vote 3: 148 to 123...margin 25, percent in favor 54.612546
	Vote 4: 196 to 81...margin 115, percent in favor 70.758123

    From these results, you can see that the only vote that didn't pass
was the creation of rec.arts.superhero, all of the other votes met the
requirements of 100 more yes than no (represented my the margin) and at
least 2/3 yes votes (represented by the % in favor).

    The group rec.arts.comics.info will be a moderated group, and the
moderator will be Brian Hughes (hades@dartmouth.edu).

    The complete voter list is incuded below, it is alpha sorted by the
From: header line, and the votes are represented by the first 4 letters,
in order vote 1, vote 2, vote 3, vote 4. A=Abstain. There were a total
of 293 ballots sent in, and due to various abstentions on the ballots,
none of the votes above have this total for yes + no votes.
