I am proposing that we add the following unmoderated newsgroups. We will be voting on group creation group by group, its not a package deal. The purpose of this discussion is to select a name and charter for each desired new group.         1. sci.electronics.home                for VCR repair, speakers, how to charge batteries,                sterios, am/fm radio, TVs camcorders, etc.          2. sci.electronic.design                For microcontrollers, microprocessors, digital and analog                circuit design.  Hopefully this will encourage more                exchanges between persons involved in electronic design.          3. sci.electronics.forsale                Buying and selling of electronic gear and components,                surplus ICs, test equipment.  These items seem to get                lost in misc.forsale.    Then we rename sci.electronics to sci.electronics.misc  as a forum for general questions such as:                  How to influence the stop lights in your city.                How to make an electric car.                How does my xxx??? work ?  Discussion is limited to 30 days.  If no general agreement is reached in 30 days the discusion will be taken off line, to email.  After a general agreement is reached on the name and charter for each group we will have a formal vote on each proposed group.  The voting period will be at least 21 days and not more than 31 days.  To create a group we need to have 100 more YES votes than No votes, AND we need a 2/3 majority.  If you want any other groups like a sci.electronics.acad or something, now would be a good time to discuss it. -- Dean Youngquist         | [email protected] |  From [email protected] Mon Jul 31 13:38:58 1995 Path: uunet!bounce-back From: [email protected] (Mark Zenier) Newsgroups: news.announce.newgroups,news.groups,sci.electronics,sci.electronics.cad,sci.electronics.repair Subject: RFD: sci.electronics reorganization Followup-To: news.groups Date: 31 Jul 1995 17:38:08 -0000 Organization: NETCOM On-line Communication Services (408 261-4700 guest) Lines: 170 Sender: [email protected] Approved: [email protected] Message-ID: <[email protected]> NNTP-Posting-Host: rodan.uu.net Archive-Name: sci.electronics-reorg Xref: uunet news.announce.newgroups:7245 news.groups:162077 sci.electronics:143719 sci.electronics.cad:3575 sci.electronics.repair:13535                       REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)                 unmoderated group sci.electronics.help               unmoderated group sci.electronics.history              unmoderated group sci.electronics.components               unmoderated group sci.electronics.circuits              unmoderated group sci.electronics.equipment         unmoderated group misc.industry.electronics.marketplace    unmoderated group sci.electronics.misc (renames sci.electronics)  Summary:   Split of sci.electronics  Proponent:  Mark Zenier, [email protected], [email protected]  Rationale: 	Traffic in the sci.electronics newsgroup has reached a level 	(circa 200 posts a day, peak) where it is difficult to deal 	with.  This proposal is a split based on a rough classification 	of the current traffic.  This proposal is an attempt to follow 	through with the results of a lengthy discussion in the group 	that occured this spring and early summer.  Philosophy: 	This is strictly a split based on the current topics discussed 	in the group.  Rather than build a list of topics that "it would 	be nice to have", a proposed group had to have some (subjective) 	level of traffic in the group on its topics already.  	In the previous discussion on the split that occured in the group, 	several proposals for groups were raised that had merit, but didn't 	have a large amount of traffic.  Specifically, on the subject of 	manufacturing engineering and, electromagnetic compatibility and 	compliance to regulations.  I chose not to propose these groups at 	this time.  I feel that groups these groups are of professional 	interest and would be better placed in a currently nonexistent 	sci.engr.electrical hierarchy.  Current groups not included in this proposal: 	sci.electronics.repair 	sci.electronics.cad  Proposed Groups:  Sci.electronics.misc  General discussions of the field of electronics. (To replace the current sci.electronics)  	Rationale: 	Per the normal convention, this is renameing of the existing 	sci.electronics group.  	Charter: 	General discussions on the topic of electronics. (Discussions on the 	relative merits of various consumer electronics equipment are better 	held in the groups in the rec hierarchy devoted to those topics.)  Sci.electronics.help  elementary questions about electronics  	Rationale: 	A reasonable portion (depending on the time of year relative 	to the school term) of the traffic is beginners questions. 	A number of novice users have complained that the volume of 	traffic, and the perceived unfriendliness of the group acts 	as an inhibition to free discussions.  	Charter: 	A forum for discussion of electronics where there is no such thing as 	a stupid question.  Beginners questions.  Discussion of electronics 	education.  Requests for other sources of information.  Sci.electronics.history   Tesla, Edison, Marconi ...  	Rationale: 	A reasonable portion of the traffic is discussion on historical 	figures in the electronics field, technical milestones, and 	various trivia.  	Charter: 	Discussion of the history of the field of electronics.  The 	accomplishments of historical figures (Tesla, Edison and so 	on).  The discussion of obselete electronic and electric technology. 	The perpetual discussion of what BNC stands for and other trivia.  Sci.electronics.components	integrated circuits, resistors, capacitors Sci.electronics.circuits	electronic circuit design Sci.electronics.equipment  test, laboratory, and industrial electronic products  	Rationale: 	These three groups are an attempt to categorize the traffic 	into seperatable subfields.  The usual proposals for splitting 	the group usually start with proposing splits along either 	applications (audio, automotive, computer ...) or along 	what would best be called design specialization (analog, 	digital, ...).  The problem with the first is that the 	underlying methods and techniques are the same across the 	field, and for the second, the dividing line is blurred 	(and the most interesting part of the field).  	The split proposed here is to use a level of complexity.  In most 	cases, the poster is looking for an answer to their questions on 	only one level.  	The proposed components group is for questions dealing with 	individual parts.  Someone working on this level is looking 	for a specific function or source or indentification for an 	electronic component.  Postings requesting the indentification 	of an integrated circuit are a large portion of the current 	traffic.  	The circuit group is for persons combining components into 	circuits.  Discussion on design solutions and techniques.  	The equipment group is for persons looking for already 	available solutions to their problems.  Sci.electronics.components	integrated circuits, resistors, capacitors  	Charter: 	Discussions of electronics at the component level.  The use, 	limitations, and identification of resistors, capacitors, 	integrated circuits, connectors, enclosures, ... and so on. 	Locations and contact informations for Manufacturers, Distributors, 	and other sources for supply and technical information.  Sci.electronics.circuits	electronic circuit design  	Charter: 	Discussions relevant to the design of electronics circuits.  Sci.electronics.equipment  test, laboratory, and industrial electronic products  	Charter: 	Discussion of the application and internal operation and relative 	merits of test equipment, laboratory equipment, and industrial 	equipment.  (Discussions on the relative merits of various consumer 	electronics equipment are better held in the groups in the rec 	hierarchy devoted to those topics.)  misc.industry.electronics.marketplace    marketplace for electronics components, equipment, and services  	Rationale: 	A reasonable portion of the existing traffic is persons and companies 	selling or wanting to buy electronics components, equipment and 	services.  The postings can be categorized as persons at companies 	needing production quantities of scare parts, people cleaning out 	their basements, and commercial advertisements for services.  	Charter: 	Advertisment and discussion for the buying, selling, and bartering 	of electronic components (integrated circuits, resistor, capacitors, 	etc.), electronics test equipment, electronics laboratory equipment, 	electronics industrial equipment, and services used for the production 	of electronics.  NO CONSUMER ELECTRONICS -  NO AUDIO, VIDEO, or HOME 	COMPUTERS.   Distribution: 	This Request For Discussion is to be posted in sci.electronics, 	sci.electronics.cad, sci.electronics.repair, and news.groups.  Voting Procedure: 	This is NOT a ballot for a vote.  This posting is to initiate a 	discussion, to occur in the news.groups newsgroup, about the 	proposal.  This discussion will last about a month, and not less 	than 21 days.  If a consensus can be reached in the discussion, 	whoever the proponent is at that time will send the revised 	proposal to the Usenet Volunteer Votetakers who will then post 	the official ballot giving the procedure for voting.  This vote 	will then last about a month, details to be in the offical 	Call For Vote ballot posting.

The split proposed here is set up on levels of complexity.  In this field of technology, people look for solutions to problems along these levels.  Someone who is looking for a box that solves their problems is working at a higher level of detail than someone who is designing a module (circuit board) and that second person is working at a higher level than someone looking for a prebuilt integrated circuit that they need to purchase.  The proposed components group is for questions dealing with individual parts.  Someone working on this level is looking for a specific function or source or identification for an electronic component. Postings requesting the identification of an integrated circuit are a large portion of the current traffic.  The design group is for persons combining components into circuits. Discussion on design solutions and techniques.  The equipment group is for persons looking for already available solutions to their problems.  RATIONALE: misc.industry.electronics.marketplace  A reasonable portion of the existing traffic is persons and companies selling or wanting to buy electronics components, equipment and services.

This proposal is a split based on a rough classification of the current traffic.  This proposal is an attempt to follow through with the results of a lengthy discussion in the group that occurred this spring.  RATIONALE: sci.electronics.misc (To rename the current sci.electronics)  Per the normal convention, this is renaming of the existing sci.electronics group.  RATIONALE: sci.electronics.basics  A reasonable portion (depending on the time of year relative to the school term) of the traffic is beginners questions.  A number of novice users have complained that the volume of traffic, and the perceived unfriendliness of the group acts as an inhibition to free discussions.  RATIONALE: sci.electronics.history  A reasonable portion of the traffic is discussion on historical figures in the electronics field, technical milestones, and various trivia.  RATIONALE: sci.electronics.components, sci.electronics.design,            sci.electronics.equipment  These three groups are an attempt to categorize the traffic into separate subfields.
