This was initially discussed in October, but because of a mailer problem with
the site which was going to collect the votes it was not brought to a vote
at that time.  Steve Kinzler has requested that we reissue the RFD.  Most
of this was originally written by Steve, but I have made some modifications.


Request for Discussion             Reissued 01/11/92 
======= === ==========

GROUP:  rec.humor.oracle, replacing alt.humor.oracle

STATUS: moderated

INITIAL MODERATOR: Steve Kinzler ([email protected])

PURPOSE:

For postings of the Usenet Oracularities Digest at a maximum
    frequency of one every two days, periodic information postings, and
    announcements from the moderator.

--------------------------
GROUP:  rec.humor.oracle.d 

STATUS: unmoderated

PURPOSE:

For discussion of the Usenet Oracle among its participants.

---------------------------

What's the Usenet Oracle?

Briefly and primarily, it's a means to support a cooperative effort for
creative, original humor.  Software currently on iuvax.cs.indiana.edu
accepts e-mail containing "questions for the all-knowing Oracle".  The
software sends out these questions to other questioners to be answered,
and then forwards the answer to the original questioners, all
anonymously.  Copies of the resulting questions/answers are forwarded to
volunteers for review and selection for publication in the Usenet
Oracularities.  Readers are invited to rate the published Oracularities,
and the results are included in a later issue.  The persons who wrote
the question and answer are notified by e-mail of the score that their
joint efforts produced.  Every couple of months, the very best 
questions/answers are submitted to rec.humor.funny.

The Usenet Oracle has been running steadily for over two years.  Over 380
issues of the Usenet Oracularities Digest have been sent out.  In its
earliest months, issues of the digest were published more frequently and
contained material of more varying quality.  They are now limited to at
most one issue every two days and their content is chosen by a diverse
group of volunteers.

For a more complete explanation of the Usenet Oracle and details about
accessing its archives, we refer you to the "Intro to the Usenet Oracle"
article posted to alt.humor.oracle and news.answers.  This may also be
obtained by sending mail to [email protected] with the word
"help" in the subject line.


Why rec.humor.oracle?

The Usenet Oracularities were originally posted to rec.humor.  A call by
Oracularities readers who weren't interested in the rest of rec.humor
and by rec.humor readers who weren't interested in the Oracularities led
me to create a separate newsgroup, alt.humor.oracle.  alt.humor.oracle
has proved itself as a viable newsgroup with 18,000 readers reported in
recent statistics (#501, 58% propagation).  However, as an alt group, its 
availability is limited and my mailing list for the Oracularities digests 
contains hundreds of people who are there because they cannot receive 
alt.humor.oracle.


What happens to rec.humor.oracle if [email protected] goes out
of business?

Steve doesn't expect this to happen.  If for any reason (none of which we can
now forsee), they would be no longer able to support the Usenet Oracle at
indiana.edu, there would be capable volunteers at other sites to take
over.  

 

What does the moderator do?  

The Oracle doesn't take much to keep it running.  The software is developed 
to a point where it pretty much runs itself.  For the most part, the 
moderator needs to keep an eye on it, manage the group of volunteer reviewers, 
and edit the Oracularities.  


Why is this being brought up again?

Steve Kinzler is going on a six month sabbatical starting in March.  He
would like to see the Oracle through the creation of rec.humor.oracle, and
then turn it over to someone else, at least for the period of time when he
will be off the net.  (Steve does not expect finding a new moderator to
be much of a problem.)


Why does rec.humor.oracle need to be moderated and why do we need
rec.humor.oracle.d?

At present alt.humor.oracle contains both the Oracle Digest and comments and
other questions or discussions about the Digest or the Oracle.  There are
not at present a large number of non-Digest postings, but the volume will
likely increase once it moves to the rec hierarchy.  Many of the non-Digest
posts which appear more correctly should have been sent to the Oracle as a 
question. 

Having rec.humor.oracle moderated will simplify this, and those people who 
would prefer only to read the Oracularities will not have the other traffic 
to deal with.  Replies and followups to rec.humor.oracle could be treated as 
votes, which is how followups are currently treated in the Oracularity 
Digest.  However, if rec.humor.oracle.d fails discussion would have to take 
place in rec.humor.d.

When will voting begin?

Because this was discussed for some time last fall, with some changes made
in the original proposal based on discussion at that time, we hope that we can
begin the voting in just a few weeks, so that it can be concluded before
Steve takes off.  Therefore, we feel that voting may begin as early as
January 25th.  Michael Nolan will serve as vote collector and tabulator,
the exact address and voting procedures will be contained in the Call For
Votes when it is issued.  This will be a two part vote, one for the creation
of rec.humor.oracle (moderated) and one for the creation of rec.humor.oracle.d
(unmoderated).  The usual requirements (2/3 of the votes in favor, and at least
100 more YES votes than NO votes) will apply.

This is the 3rd and final call for votes for the proposed creation of:

rec.humor.oracle moderated
rec.humor.oracle.d

The voting period ends Feb 16th.
The charter and first mass acknowledgement of votes follows:

Third Call for Votes                Voting began 1/23/92, ends 2/16/92
===== ==== === =====

NOTE:  This is a two part vote.  Please use the sample ballot provided below.
Please note the additional address for voting.  A problem has developed
with e-mail to tssi.com last Thursday that has not yet been resolved.
Sorry about that, it has been inconvenient for this vote and even more so
for any other e-mail bound for us.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

PROPOSAL 1:  to create the group rec.humor.oracle, replacing alt.humor.oracle

STATUS: moderated

INITIAL MODERATOR: Steve Kinzler ([email protected])

CHARTER:

For postings of the Usenet Oracularities Digest at a maximum
    frequency of one every two days, periodic information postings, and
    announcements from the moderator.  (See below for a description of the
    Usenet Oracle.)

--------------------------

PROPOSAL 2:  to create the group rec.humor.oracle.d 

STATUS: unmoderated

CHARTER:

For discussion of the Usenet Oracle among its participants.

---------------------------

What's the Usenet Oracle?

Briefly and primarily, it's a means to support a cooperative effort for
creative, original humor.  Software currently on iuvax.cs.indiana.edu
accepts e-mail containing "questions for the all-knowing Oracle".  The
software sends out these questions to other questioners to be answered,
and then forwards the answer to the original questioners, all
anonymously.  Copies of the resulting questions/answers are forwarded to
volunteers for review and selection for publication in the Usenet
Oracularities.  Readers are invited to rate the published Oracularities,
and the results are included in a later issue.  The persons who wrote
the question and answer are notified by e-mail of the score that their
joint efforts produced.  Every couple of months, the very best 
questions/answers are submitted to rec.humor.funny.

The Usenet Oracle has been running steadily for over two years.  Over 380
issues of the Usenet Oracularities Digest have been sent out.  In its
earliest months, issues of the digest were published more frequently and
contained material of more varying quality.  They are now limited to at
most one issue every two days and their content is chosen by a diverse
group of volunteers.

For a more complete explanation of the Usenet Oracle and details about
accessing its archives, we refer you to the "Intro to the Usenet Oracle"
article posted to alt.humor.oracle and news.answers.  This may also be
obtained by sending mail to [email protected] with the word
"help" in the subject line.

----------------

VOTING PROCEDURE:

IMPORTANT--This is a two part vote, please use the ballot form below to
simplify the tabulating procedure.

Votes should be sent to [email protected]  
PLEASE SEND A CC OF YOUR VOTE TO: [email protected], because e-mail
delivery to tssi.com was interrupted last Thursday and has not yet been
restored.  (To make matters worse, most users are not getting bounce
messages.)

Votes will not be individually acknowledged, but one or more mass 
acknowledgements will be posted during the voting period.  Only ballots
received by e-mail during the voting period will be counted.

VOTING PERIOD:  Now (1/22/92) through 23:59 CST on 2/16/92.


TABULATION PROCEDURE:

Votes will be tabulated by Michael Nolan ([email protected]).  The criteria
for approval shall be a 2/3 majority vote in favor with 100 more 'FOR'
votes that 'AGAINST' votes.  The two proposals will be tabulated separately.
(Although if proposal 1 fails, proposal 2 is moot.) 


SAMPLE BALLOT FORM 
Edit to eliminate the unwanted words and mail to [email protected]
[email protected]----

Proposal 1:  I vote for/against the creation of rec.humor.oracle

Proposal 2:  I vote for/against the creation of rec.humor.oracle.d 

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Mass acknowledgement of votes received between 9:00 AM CST 1/28/92 and
4 PM CST on 2/5/92.  Votes received prior to that were in the first Mass
Acknowledgement and are not repeated here.  I have NOT cross-checked the
two list for duplicates yet.

Request for Discussion
======= === ==========

GROUP:  rec.humor.oracle, replacing alt.humor.oracle

STATUS: unmoderated

PURPOSES:

(1) For postings of the Usenet Oracularities Digest at a maximum
    frequency of one every two days.
(2) For discussion of the Usenet Oracle among its participants (a rather
    small volume of articles, in practice).


What's the Usenet Oracle?

Briefly and primarily, it's a means to support a cooperative effort for
creative, original humor.  Software currently on iuvax.cs.indiana.edu
accepts e-mail containing "questions for the all-knowing Oracle".  The
software sends out these questions to other questioners to be answered,
and then forwards the answer to the original questioners, all
anonymously.  Copies of the resulting questions/answers are forwarded to
volunteers for review and selection for publication in the Usenet
Oracularities.  Every couple of months, the very best questions/answers,
as rated by the readers, are submitted to rec.humor.funny.

The Usenet Oracle has been running steadily for two years.  Over 350
issues of the Usenet Oracularities Digest have been sent out.  In its
earliest months, issues of the digest were published more frequently and
contained material of more varying quality.  They are now limited to at
most one issue every two days and their content is chosen by a diverse
group of volunteers.

For a more complete explanation of the Usenet Oracle and details about
accessing its archives, I refer you to the "Intro to the Usenet Oracle"
article posted to alt.humor.oracle and news.answers.  This may also be
obtained by sending mail to oracle@iuvax.cs.indiana.edu with the word
"help" in the subject line.


Why rec.humor.oracle?

The Usenet Oracularities were originally posted to rec.humor.  A call by
Oracularities readers who weren't interested in the rest of rec.humor
and by rec.humor readers who weren't interested in the Oracularities led
me to create a separate newsgroup, alt.humor.oracle.  alt.humor.oracle
has proved itself as a viable newsgroup with 18,000 readers reported in
the latest statistics (#501, 58% propagation).  However, as an alt
group, its availability is limited and my mailing list for the
Oracularities digests contains hundreds of people who are there because
they cannot receive alt.humor.oracle.


What happens to rec.humor.oracle if oracle@iuvax.cs.indiana.edu goes out
of business?

I don't expect this to happen.  If for any reason (none of which I can
now forsee), we would be no longer able to support the Usenet Oracle at
indiana.edu, there would be capable volunteers at other sites to take
over.  Nor does the Oracle depend on me to keep it running.  It's
developed to a point where it pretty much runs itself.  For the most
part, I just keep an eye on it, manage the group of volunteer reviewers,
and edit the Oracularities digests -- a job that can easily be given to
anyone else on the net (and is when I'm away for any significant amount
of time).

NOTE:  Michael Nolan, nolan@tssi.com, and Jay Maynard,
       jmaynard@oac.hsc.uth.tmc.edu, will be following up on the
       newsgroup creation process for rec.humor.oracle, handling the CFV
       and voting.

This was initially discussed in October, but because of a mailer problem with
the site which was going to collect the votes it was not brought to a vote
at that time.  Steve Kinzler has requested that we reissue the RFD.  Most
of this was originally written by Steve, but I have made some modifications.

now forsee), they would be no longer able to support the Usenet Oracle at
indiana.edu, there would be capable volunteers at other sites to take
over.  

 

What does the moderator do?  

The Oracle doesn't take much to keep it running.  The software is developed 
to a point where it pretty much runs itself.  For the most part, the 
moderator needs to keep an eye on it, manage the group of volunteer reviewers, 
and edit the Oracularities.  


Why is this being brought up again?

Steve Kinzler is going on a six month sabbatical starting in March.  He
would like to see the Oracle through the creation of rec.humor.oracle, and
then turn it over to someone else, at least for the period of time when he
will be off the net.  (Steve does not expect finding a new moderator to
be much of a problem.)


Why does rec.humor.oracle need to be moderated and why do we need
rec.humor.oracle.d?

At present alt.humor.oracle contains both the Oracle Digest and comments and
other questions or discussions about the Digest or the Oracle.  There are
not at present a large number of non-Digest postings, but the volume will
likely increase once it moves to the rec hierarchy.  Many of the non-Digest
posts which appear more correctly should have been sent to the Oracle as a 
question. 

Having rec.humor.oracle moderated will simplify this, and those people who 
would prefer only to read the Oracularities will not have the other traffic 
to deal with.  Replies and followups to rec.humor.oracle could be treated as 
votes, which is how followups are currently treated in the Oracularity 
Digest.  However, if rec.humor.oracle.d fails discussion would have to take 
place in rec.humor.d.

When will voting begin?

Because this was discussed for some time last fall, with some changes made
in the original proposal based on discussion at that time, we hope that we can
begin the voting in just a few weeks, so that it can be concluded before
Steve takes off.  Therefore, we feel that voting may begin as early as
January 25th.  Michael Nolan will serve as vote collector and tabulator,
the exact address and voting procedures will be contained in the Call For
Votes when it is issued.  This will be a two part vote, one for the creation
of rec.humor.oracle (moderated) and one for the creation of rec.humor.oracle.d
(unmoderated).  The usual requirements (2/3 of the votes in favor, and at least
100 more YES votes than NO votes) will apply.

The voting period ends Feb 16th.
The charter and first mass acknowledgement of votes follows:

Third Call for Votes                Voting began 1/23/92, ends 2/16/92
===== ==== === =====

NOTE:  This is a two part vote.  Please use the sample ballot provided below.
Please note the additional address for voting.  A problem has developed
with e-mail to tssi.com last Thursday that has not yet been resolved.
Sorry about that, it has been inconvenient for this vote and even more so
for any other e-mail bound for us.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

PROPOSAL 1:  to create the group rec.humor.oracle, replacing alt.humor.oracle

STATUS: moderated

INITIAL MODERATOR: Steve Kinzler (oracle-mod@iuvax.cs.indiana.edu)

CHARTER:

For postings of the Usenet Oracularities Digest at a maximum
    frequency of one every two days, periodic information postings, and
    announcements from the moderator.  (See below for a description of the
    Usenet Oracle.)

--------------------------

PROPOSAL 2:  to create the group rec.humor.oracle.d 

STATUS: unmoderated

CHARTER:

For discussion of the Usenet Oracle among its participants.

---------------------------

What's the Usenet Oracle?

Briefly and primarily, it's a means to support a cooperative effort for
creative, original humor.  Software currently on iuvax.cs.indiana.edu
accepts e-mail containing "questions for the all-knowing Oracle".  The
software sends out these questions to other questioners to be answered,
and then forwards the answer to the original questioners, all
anonymously.  Copies of the resulting questions/answers are forwarded to
volunteers for review and selection for publication in the Usenet
Oracularities.  Readers are invited to rate the published Oracularities,
and the results are included in a later issue.  The persons who wrote
the question and answer are notified by e-mail of the score that their
joint efforts produced.  Every couple of months, the very best 
questions/answers are submitted to rec.humor.funny.

The Usenet Oracle has been running steadily for over two years.  Over 380
issues of the Usenet Oracularities Digest have been sent out.  In its
earliest months, issues of the digest were published more frequently and
contained material of more varying quality.  They are now limited to at
most one issue every two days and their content is chosen by a diverse
group of volunteers.

For a more complete explanation of the Usenet Oracle and details about
accessing its archives, we refer you to the "Intro to the Usenet Oracle"
article posted to alt.humor.oracle and news.answers.  This may also be
obtained by sending mail to oracle@iuvax.cs.indiana.edu with the word
"help" in the subject line.

----------------

VOTING PROCEDURE:

IMPORTANT--This is a two part vote, please use the ballot form below to
simplify the tabulating procedure.

Votes should be sent to vote-oracle@tssi.com.  
PLEASE SEND A CC OF YOUR VOTE TO: nolan@pythia.unl.edu, because e-mail
delivery to tssi.com was interrupted last Thursday and has not yet been
restored.  (To make matters worse, most users are not getting bounce
messages.)

Votes will not be individually acknowledged, but one or more mass 
acknowledgements will be posted during the voting period.  Only ballots
received by e-mail during the voting period will be counted.

VOTING PERIOD:  Now (1/22/92) through 23:59 CST on 2/16/92.


TABULATION PROCEDURE:

Votes will be tabulated by Michael Nolan (nolan@tssi.com).  The criteria
for approval shall be a 2/3 majority vote in favor with 100 more 'FOR'
votes that 'AGAINST' votes.  The two proposals will be tabulated separately.
(Although if proposal 1 fails, proposal 2 is moot.) 


SAMPLE BALLOT FORM 
Edit to eliminate the unwanted words and mail to vote-oracle@tssi.com
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Proposal 1:  I vote for/against the creation of rec.humor.oracle

Proposal 2:  I vote for/against the creation of rec.humor.oracle.d 

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Mass acknowledgement of votes received between 9:00 AM CST 1/28/92 and
4 PM CST on 2/5/92.  Votes received prior to that were in the first Mass
Acknowledgement and are not repeated here.  I have NOT cross-checked the
two list for duplicates yet.
