Note: the following is a 2nd posting for those who may have missed it
over the holidays.

********************************************************************
This is a formal CALL FOR VOTES regarding creation of a solid earth
sciences newsgroup to be called 'sci.geo.geology'.

The discussion period has gone on for the required period of time.
Thanks for the input from everyone who participated, really.
There is definitely a consensus on the need for such a newsgroup,
the format, and the purpose of the discussion. Recent posts on
news.groups summarize the choice of a name.  This marks the end 
of the discussion period.

Some of you already sent "votes", however according to net
guidelines, you may vote only during the voting period, which
starts today (December 21, 1990) and ends 31 days from today,
on January 22, 1991.  In order for the group to be created, a
substantial number of votes are needed.  If you wish to see such 
a group formed (or not), please make your voice heard.

NOTE: an explicit, unambiguous YES or NO vote is what's required.
Other comments can be mailed to me, '[email protected]'.

Voting instructions are as follows:

        1 - All votes should be sent email to '[email protected]'

	2 - To vote FOR creation of sci.geo.geology, email something
		similar to the following text:  
	
		"I vote YES.  I'm for creation of the newsgroup sci.geo.geology"
	
	3 - To vote AGAINST creation of sci.geo.geology, email 
	    something like the following text:

	"I vote NO.  I'm against creation of the newsgroup sci.geo.geology"

In order for you to make an informed choice, here is the charter of the
proposed group:
 
****************************************************************************

Name:    sci.geo.geology

Type:    unmoderated

Scope:   geology:
          "the science dealing with the structure of the earth's
           crust and formation and development of its various layers:
           it includes the study of individual rock types and early forms
           of life found as fossils in rocks." 
						  Webster's

         Possible subjects for discussion would include all aspects of
         solid earth geology and geophysics.
		(Including, but NOT limited to: plate tectonics
		tectonophysics, petrology, mineralogy, volcanology,
		structural geology, paleontology, sedimentary processes, 
		basin analysis, seismic exploration,  seismic stratigraphy,
		petroleum geology, seismology, geochemistry, glaciation, 
		groundwater hydrology, geochronology, paleomagnetism,
		paleoclimatology.) 

Purpose:
     
	The newsgroup 'sci.geo.geology' is intended primarily for
	discussions at a level which would be relevant and informative
	to active researchers (i.e. earth scientists and students), 
	but is open for general discussions as well. 

	It hosts discussions, debates, and comments that are less formal and
	more timely than is possible in juried scientific journals.

	It is a clearinghouse for exchange of information, including
	ideas, programs, images, data, and citations.

	It can help us keep each other informed on upcoming events of interest 
	to earth science researchers and computing in the earth sciences.

Here are the results of voting on creation of the newsgroup 
sci.geo.geology to discuss solid earth sciences.

In brief, the group passed by an overwhelming majority.

Votes received by [email protected] during the vote
period from December 21 to January 22 total to:

For: 266           Against:  11 

This message is being posted to the appropriate groups now.
It will still be a little wait until the group is created.
The following guidelines must be observed:

   1) After the moderator of news.announce.newgroups posts
      this announcement to that group, there is a five day
      waiting period during which results of the vote can
      be verified/contested.

   2) If no serious objections are raised, the net czars/czarinas,
      send out a newgroup control message.

At any rate, the new group should be created by the end of the month.
Thank you to everyone who participated, please be patient.

So that everyone who wishes can verify the results of the voting
here are the lists of votes each way.
