REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION:

of the creation of a newsgroup called "rec.arts.comics.creative".

PURPOSE:

This newsgroup is to be available for people who want to post comic-related
fiction and discussions about them.  Writers are encouraged to write
into existing storylines although it is strongly recommended that
they do so in a way that doesn't inconvenience the writer who's
storyline you have written into.

This group is *not* intended as a place for posting stories using
characters from actual comic books as this would constitute copyright
infringement.

RATIONALE:

There exists a thriving alt group called "alt.comics.lnh" which supports
this kind of material.  This group is not available on all newsreaders
however and there is interest amongst people reading "rec.arts.comics.misc"
to create a new group to avoid having people crosspost to that group.

NEWSGROUP CREATION:

Although there is probably sufficient interest in the creation of this
newsgroup to warrant holding a vote this spring, it is suspected that a
considerable number of people who would be interested in this group are 
in fact students who would lose access to the net before such a vote
would go ahead.  On the other hand, it is equally true that it would be 
ideal if the new group were to come into existence during the summer
so that it would be available for students returning in the fall.

however and there is interest amongst people reading "rec.arts.comics.misc"
to create a new group to avoid having people crosspost to that group.

In addition, comic-related fiction is posted on other bulletin boards
such as Genie and there's no newsgroup here that caters to those who might
want to repost these stories here.

Finally, the existance of a rec group would attract the attention of people
who might not be aware of the determination with which comic-related stories
are written for net publication.  As long as groups like the Legion of
Net.Heroes and JLGenie are restricted to their own spheres of influence,
people are not going to go out of their way to track down their stories and
they may be missing something that they might actually like and, yes, even
contribute to.

NEWSGROUP CREATION:

A request for discussion was submitted back in the spring but when the
time came for a call for vote the net was rather silent so this
request for discussion has been submitted so that there might be a
vote held one month from now.

            Although one shouldn't laugh at one's own humour,
                  it is nice to know that somebody is.

REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION:

of the creation of a newsgroup called "rec.arts.comics.creative".

PURPOSE:

This newsgroup is to be available for people who want to post comic-related
fiction and discussions about them.  Writers are encouraged to write
into existing storylines although it is strongly recommended that
they do so in a way that doesn't inconvenience the writer who's
storyline you have written into.

This group is *not* intended as a place for posting stories using
current characters from actual comic books as this would constitute
copyright infringement.

RATIONALE:

There exists a thriving alt group called "alt.comics.lnh" which supports
this kind of material.  This group is not available on all newsreaders
however and there is interest amongst people reading "rec.arts.comics.misc"
to create a new group to avoid having people crosspost to that group.

In addition, comic-related fiction is posted on other bulletin boards
such as Genie and there's no newsgroup here that caters to those who might
want to repost these stories here.

The existance of a mailing list known as Superguy has also come to the
attention of people interested in the creation of this group.  This
represents yet another group of people who are interested in
participating in this newsgroup.

Finally, the existance of a rec group would attract the attention of people
who might not be aware of the determination with which comic-related stories
are written for net publication.  As long as groups like the Legion of
Net.Heroes and JLGenie are restricted to their own spheres of influence,
people are not going to go out of their way to track down their stories and
they may be missing something that they might actually like and, yes, even
contribute to.

NEWSGROUP CREATION:

A call for votes should be posted three weeks from now (May 3rd).
Ron Dippold has offered to collect the votes.

CHARTER

This newsgroup is to be available for people who want to post comic-related
fiction and discussions about them.  Writers are encouraged to follow
the existing continuity of the "universe" in which their stories take
place.  (Writers can have their stories take place in a "universe" that
is entirely their own but this would mean that any "cross-overs" with
other storylines would have to be considered "out of continuity".)

This group is *not* intended as a place for posting stories using
current characters from actual comic books as this would constitute
trademark infringement.

There is a five day discussion period after these results are posted.  If no
serious allegations of voting irregularities are raised, the moderator of
news.announce.newgroups will create the group shortly thereafter.

Newsgroups line:
rec.arts.comics.creative        Encouraging good superhero-style writing.

Votes must be received by 23:59:59 UTC, 30 May 1994.

This vote is being conducted by a neutral third party.  For voting
questions only, contact the votetaker, Jay Maynard, at
jmaynard@admin5.hsc.uth.tmc.edu.  For questions about the
proposed group, contact the proponent, Martin Phipps,
CXMP@MUSICA.MCGILL.CA.

A copy of this Call for Votes will be sent to the mailing list at
SUPERGUY@ucf1vm.cc.ucf.edu.

CHARTER

This newsgroup is to be available for people who want to post comic-related
fiction and discussions about them.  Writers are encouraged to follow
the existing continuity of the "universe" in which their stories take
place.  (Writers can have their stories take place in a "universe" that
is entirely their own but this would mean that any "cross-overs" with
other storylines would have to be considered "out of continuity".)

This group is *not* intended as a place for posting stories using
current characters from actual comic books as this would constitute
trademark infringement.

RATIONALE:

There exists a thriving alt group called "alt.comics.lnh" which supports
this kind of material.  This group is not available on all newsreaders
however and there is interest amongst people reading "rec.arts.comics.misc"
to create a new group to avoid having people crosspost to that group.

In addition, comic-related fiction is posted on other bulletin boards
such as Genie and there's no newsgroup here that caters to those who might
want to repost these stories here.

The existance of a mailing list known as Superguy has also come to the
attention of people interested in the creation of this group.  This
represents yet another group of people who might be interested in
participating in this newsgroup.

Finally, the existance of a rec group would attract the attention of people
who might not be aware of the determination with which comic-related stories
are written for net publication.  As long as groups like the Legion of
Net.Heroes and JLGenie are restricted to their own spheres of influence,
people are not going to go out of their way to track down their stories and
they may be missing something that they might actually like and, yes, even
contribute to.

                     REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)
 moderated group rec.arts.comics.creative (moderates existing group)

Newsgroup line:
rec.arts.comics.creative	Comics-related original creative writing. (Moderated)

This is a formal Request For Discussion (RFD) for the moderation of
the existing world-wide Usenet newsgroup rec.arts.comics.creative.
This is not a Call for Votes (CFV); you cannot vote at this time.
Procedural details are below.

RATIONALE: rec.arts.comics.creative

The original conception of rec.arts.comics.creative was as a fairly
low-traffic, high-signal home for the large variety of comics-related
stories and shared universes on the Net.  Moderation was seriously
considered in the original group proposal but rejected largely because
no one was in a position to moderate the group.

Recently, rec.arts.comics.creative has suffered from a rash of
off-topic articles, to the point where upwards of 80% of the group has
been noise.  The on-topic traffic for the group is normally a small
number of fairly long posts, and thus is easily drowned out by lots of
off-topic posts.

Moderation will allow the group to return to its original purpose, as
well as allow enforcement of a keyword system.  racc's counterpart in
the anime hierarchy, rec.arts.anime.creative, has been moderated since
the original creation of the group.

CHARTER: rec.arts.comics.creative

This newsgroup welcomes any form of comics-related original fiction
and discussion of the same, including but not limited to stories in
the many established shared universes.  Discussion of on-line fiction
as a whole is also welcome provided that it is related to the stories
on the newsgroup.  If they choose to write in an existing shared
universe, writers are strongly encouranged to follow the existing
continuity and rules of that universe.  "Comics-related" will be
interpreted very broadly, as has been traditional on the newsgroup.

of the process, any potential problems with the proposed newsgroups
should be raised and resolved.  The discussion period will continue

warrants it.  Please do not attempt to vote until this happens.

All discussion of this proposal should be posted to news.groups.

This RFD attempts to comply fully with the Usenet newsgroup creation
guidelines outlined in "How to Create a New Usenet Newsgroup" and "How
to Format and Submit a New Group Proposal".  Please refer to these
documents (available in news.announce.newgroups) if you have any
questions about the process.

                     FIRST CALL FOR VOTES (of 2)
 moderated group rec.arts.comics.creative (moderates existing group)

Newsgroups line:
rec.arts.comics.creative	Comics-related original creative writing. (Moderated)

Votes must be received by 23:59:59 UTC, 3 Dec 1996.

This vote is being conducted by a neutral third party.  Direct questions
about the proposed group to the proponent.  Do not distribute this CFV or the
information contained in it in any form without the votetaker's permission.

Proponent: Russ Allbery <rra@cs.stanford.edu>
Votetaker: Jani Patokallio <jpatokal@alpha.hut.fi>

RATIONALE: rec.arts.comics.creative

The original conception of rec.arts.comics.creative was as a fairly
low-traffic, high-signal home for the large variety of comics-related
stories and shared universes on the Net.  Moderation was seriously
considered in the original group proposal but rejected largely because
no one was in a position to moderate the group.

Recently, rec.arts.comics.creative has suffered from a rash of
off-topic articles, to the point where upwards of 80% of the group has
been noise.  The on-topic traffic for the group is normally a small
number of fairly long posts, and thus is easily drowned out by lots of
off-topic posts.

Moderation will allow the group to return to its original purpose, as
well as allow enforcement of a keyword system.  racc's counterpart in
the anime hierarchy, rec.arts.anime.creative, has been moderated since
the original creation of the group.

CHARTER: rec.arts.comics.creative

This newsgroup welcomes any form of comics-related original fiction
and discussion of the same, including but not limited to stories in
the many established shared universes.  Discussion of on-line fiction
as a whole is also welcome provided that it is related to the stories
on the newsgroup.  If they choose to write in an existing shared
universe, writers are strongly encouranged to follow the existing
continuity and rules of that universe.  "Comics-related" will be
interpreted very broadly, as has been traditional on the newsgroup.

Each posting to rec.arts.comics.creative should include a keyword on
the subject line either designating which shared universe the posting
refers to or marking the general subject of the post (ADMIN, META,
MISC, etc.).  If a submitted post does not have a keyword, the
moderator will add an appropriate keyword, but posters are encouraged
to add keywords themselves to save moderation work.

HOW TO VOTE:

Follow these instructions *exactly*!  Votes are counted by computer.
You should send E-MAIL (posts to a newsgroup are invalid) to:

    voting@hut.fi

Please do not assume that just replying to this message will work.
Check the address before you mail your vote.  Your mail message
should contain one and only one of the following vote statements:

    I vote YES on moderating rec.arts.comics.creative
    I vote NO on moderating rec.arts.comics.creative

    Voter name:

If your mail software does not indicate your real name (for example, AOL and
Delphi do not), include _exactly_ the statement above on a _separate_ line
and add your name after the colon.  Having your name in your signature line
is NOT enough!  Do NOT join the lines together or remove the words
"Voter name"!

You may also vote ABSTAIN (which does exactly that) or CANCEL (which
removes any earlier votes).  ABSTAIN does not affect the final vote count
in any way but is listed, whereas CANCEL is not.

IMPORTANT VOTING PROCEDURE NOTES:

Standard Guidelines for voting apply.  One account per person and one vote
per person.  Votes must be mailed directly from the voter to the votetaker.
Anonymous, forwarded or proxy votes are not valid.  Votes mailed by
WWW/HTML/CGI forms are considered to be anonymous votes.

Vote counting is automated.  Failure to follow these directions may
mean that your vote does not get counted.  If you do not receive an
acknowledgment of your vote within three days contact the votetaker
about the problem.  It's your responsibility to make sure your vote
is registered correctly.  Duplicate votes are resolved in favor of
the most recent valid vote.  Addresses and votes of all voters will
be published in the final voting results post.

The purpose of a Usenet vote is to determine the genuine interest of
persons who would read a proposed newsgroup.  Soliciting votes from
disinterested parties defeats this purpose.  Please do not distribute
this CFV.  If you must, direct people to the official CFV as posted
to news.announce.newgroups.  Distributing pre-marked or otherwise
edited copies of this CFV is generally considered to be vote fraud.
When in doubt, ask the votetaker.
