Please distribute it on all platforms that might be interested.  Follow-up messages to this request are directed to the sole newsgroup intended for this purpose: news.groups. Please stick to this Usenet convention and post your contributions to our discussion in that newsgroup. Everyone interested in this proposal is strongly encouraged to participate in the discussion.   NAME AND STATUS  soc.culture.belgium (unmoderated)   PURPOSE  The proposed newsgroup soc.culture.belgium is intended as a platform for all information and discussions about Belgium and its people(s). This means all social, cultural, political, economical, historical, geographical and other issues that are, in one way or another, related to the Belgians or their country. Everyone interested in Belgium, regardless of nationality or language, is welcome. Also, it is hoped that soc.culture.belgium will be a meaningful means of contact between Belgians at home and abroad.   BACKGROUND  Belgium's trilingual status may have prevented the creation of a specific newsgroup about Belgium up to now. Most Belgians may have regarded either soc.culture.netherlands, soc.culture.french or soc.culture.germany as their "home" group, according to their mother tongue. The soc.culture.belgium newsgroup is intended not so much as a substitute, but more as an addition to these linguistically defined groups. In the new newsgroup, Belgians (and non-Belgians) of all languages can discuss issues specific to Belgium, which would strike non-Belgian readers of the groups named above as odd. Also, a proper newsgroup about Belgium will be less confusing to a non-specialized Usenet reader who wants to find information about or people >from Belgium regardless of their language.  Some sites have been reported to carry a bogus newsgroup by the name of soc.culture.belgium already. The official creation of soc.culture.belgium according to agreed Usenet procedures will facilitate access for people all over the world to information about Belgium, not the least for people in Belgium itself.   RULES  Soc.culture.belgium will be an unmoderated newsgroup; thus anyone will be able to post to this newsgroup. But being free to post should also mean being responsible for what you post. All articles posted should have something to do with Belgium or the people living there, however remotely. Insults, "flames" or unnecessary criticism of a group or a person is strongly discouraged. Please read the netiquette rules in news.announce.newusers before posting your first article to any newsgroup, and try to stick to them whenever posting articles.   LANGUAGES  Preferably English as a neutral "common ground" language; also Dutch (Flemish), French and German (three official Belgian state languages).   CHARACTER SETS  Articles should be sent in the standard 7 bit ASCII character set, conform to RFC822. If accented characters are necessary (French, German or Dutch postings), it is allowed to use the standard 8 bit ISO-8859-1 character set. Other language- or machine-specific character sets are not acceptable in this newsgroup.   RFD  Discussion on soc.culture.belgium will last 30 days. A revised RFD will be posted after 15 days. It will reflect all suggestions and opinions contributors have provided during the discussion. If ample consensus is reached after discussions, a call for votes will follow.   --------------- Frangais ---------------  [Chhrs lecteurs francophones, veuillez bien m'excuser pour les erreurs que j'ai faites. Si vous voulez, veuillez m'aider ` perfectionner ce texte en frangais]  Ceci est une demande de discussion formelle (RFD). Veuillez bien le distribuer entre des personnes intiressies n'importe oy.  Les riponses ` cette demande seront dirigies au seul groupe qui convient ` une telle discussion: news.groups. Veuillez vous conformer ` cette habitude Usenet et mettre vos contributions ` notre discussion dans ce newsgroup. Tous ceux qui s'intiressent ` ce propos sont bien priis de participer ` cette discussion.   NOM ET STATUT  soc.culture.belgium (pas modiri).   OBJECTIF  Le newsgroup en question, soc.culture.belgium, est proposi pour servir comme espace pour tous les informations et les discussions sur la Belgique et son/ses peuple(s). C'est ` dire tous les thhmes sociales, culturelles, politiques, historiques, giographiques etc. qui sont liies, de n'importe quel fagon, aux Belges ou ` leur pays. Chacun qui s'intiresse ` la Belgique est bienvenue, quelle que soit la langue maternelle ou la nationaliti. En plus, on esphre bien que soc.culture.belgium sera un moyen de communication trhs significant entre les Belges ` l'etranger et ceux en Belgique.   CONTEXTE  Le statut trilingue de la Belgique pourrant bien jtre la cause principale pour le fait qu'un newsgroup spicifique pour la Belgique n'existe pas encore. Peut-jtre la plupart des Belges ont priferi soc.culture.french, soc.culture.netherlands ou bien soc.culture.germany pour les messages divers, conforme avec leur langue maternelle. Le newsgroup soc.culture.belgium ne veut pas remplager ces autres newsgroups, mais les compliter. Dans le nouveau newsgroup, les Belges (et non-Belges) de toutes langues pourront discuter des thhmes spicifiquement Belges, que les lecteurs des autres groupes nommis ci-dessus considiraient itrange. En plus, un newsgroup propre ` la Belgique riduirait la confusion d'un lecteur Usenet non-spicialiste, qui voudrait trouver des renseignements sur ou des gens de la Belgique, sans prendre en compte la langue.  Il semble y avoir des organisations qui ont dij` un newsgroup non-agrie du nom de soc.culture.belgium. La criation officielle selon les procidures accepties au Usenet va sans doute faciliter l'acchs des gens de n'importe oy dans le monde ` l'information concernant la Belgique, aussi pour les Belges eux-mjmes.   RHGLES  Soc.culture.belgium sera un newsgroup sans modirateur. Alors, il sera permis ` chacun(e) d'afficher un message dans ce newsgroup. Mais la liberti d'affichage suppose aussi une responsabiliti d'affichage. Tous les messages affichis devraient concerner la Belgique ou les gens qui y habitent, mjme ci ce n'est qu'un rapport trhs faible. Insultations, +flames; ou critique innicessaire d'une personne ou d'un groupe ne sont pas acceptables. Veuillez lire les rhgles de netiquette dans news.announce.newusers avant de faire afficher votre premihre article dans un newsgroup, et essayez de suivre ces rhgles pour toutes les articles qui vous envoyez.   LANGUES  L'anglais, de prifirence (comme langue +neutre;); aussi le frangais, le nierlandais (flamand) et l'allemand - les trois langues officielles de la Belgique.   TABLEAU DE CARACTHRES  Les articles doivent jtre icrites dans le tableau de caracthres standard 7 bit ASCII, conforme ` RFC822. Si votre message prisuppose des caracthres accenties, il est permis d'utiliser le tableau de caracthres standard 8 bit, ISO-8859-1. Les autres tableaux de caracthres, spicifiques ` une langue ou une machine, ne sont pas acceptables dans ce newsgroup.   RFD  La discussion de soc.culture.belgium va durer 30 jours. Une rivision de la prisente RFD sera affichie aprhs 15 jours; elle va tenir compte de toutes les suggestions et les opinions qui ont iti fournies pendant la premihre partie de la discussion. Si l'on est arrivi ` un consensus suffisant aprhs les discussions, une demande de votes (CFV) va suivre.   --------------- Nederlands ---------------  Dit is een formeel verzoek om discussie (RFD). Gelieve het op alle fora te verspreiden die geonteresseerd zouden kunnen zijn.  Reacties op dit verzoek worden doorgestuurd naar de enige nieuwsgroep die daarvoor bedoeld is: news.groups. Gelieve u aan de Usenet conventie te houden en post uw bijdragen aan deze discussie in die nieuwsgroep. Iedere geonteresseerde in dit voorstel wordt ten zeerste aangespoord aan de discussie deel te nemen.   NAAM EN STATUS  soc.culture.belgium (niet gemodereerd)   DOELSTELLING  De voorgestelde nieuwsgroep, soc.culture.belgium, is bedoeld als forum voor alle informatie en discussies over Belgik en het/de Belgische volk(eren). Dit geldt dus voor alle sociale, culturele, politieke, economische, historische, geografische en andere thema's die op welke manier dan ook verband houden met de Belgen of hun land. Iedereen die geonteresseerd is in Belgik, ongeacht taal of nationaliteit, is welkom. Bovendien hopen we dat soc.culture.belgium een belangrijk contactmedium tussen Belgen in het binnen- en het buitenland zal blijken.   ACHTERGROND  De Belgische drietaligheid heeft misschien tot nu toe de aanmaak van een specifieke nieuwsgroep over Belgik verhinderd. Wellicht hebben de meeste Belgen zich voorlopig opgehouden in soc.culture.netherlands, soc.culture.french of soc.culture.germany, naar gelang hun moedertaal. De groep soc.culture.belgium is niet zozeer als vervanging, maar meer als aanvulling van deze taalkundig afgebakende groepen bedoeld. In de nieuwe nieuwsgroep zouden Belgen (en niet-Belgen) ongeacht hun taal specifiek Belgische thema's bespreken, die bij niet-Belgische lezers van bovengenoemde groepen vreemd zouden overkomen. Bovendien zou een eigen nieuwsgroep over Belgik minder verwarrend zijn voor de niet-gespecialiseerde Usenet-lezer die informatie over of mensen uit Belgik wil vinden ongeacht de taal.  Op enkele sites zou reeds een niet-officikle nieuwsgroup onder de naam soc.culture.belgium bestaan. De officikle aanmaak van soc.culture.belgium volgens algemeen aanvaarde Usenet-procedures zal de toegang van mensen uit de hele wereld tot informatie over Belgik vergemakkelijken, niet het minst voor de mensen in Belgik zelf.   REGELS  Soc.culture.belgium zal niet gemodereerd worden; iedereen kan dus vrij berichten posten in de nieuwsgroep. Maar deze vrijheid om te posten veronderstelt ook een verantwoordelijkheid ten opzichte van wat je post. Alle artikelen zouden iets met Belgik of zijn inwoners te maken moeten hebben, al is het maar een klein beetje. Beledigingen, "flames" of onnodige kritiek op een groep of een persoon wordt ten stelligste afgeraden. Gelieve de netiquette-regels in news.announce.newusers te lezen vooraleer je eerste artikel in om het even welke nieuwsgroep te posten en u eraan te houden bij ieder artikel dat gepost wordt.   TALEN  Bij voorkeur Engels als neutrale gemeenschappelijke taal; daarnaast Nederlands, Frans en Duits (de drie officikle talen van Belgik).   TEKENSETS  Berichten moeten worden opgesteld in de standaard 7-bits ASCII-tekenset, in overeenstemming met RFC822. Voor letters met accenten (berichten in het Frans, Duits of Nederlands) mag ook de standaard 8-bits ISO-8859-1-tekenset gebruikt worden. Andere, taal- of machinespecifieke tekensets worden niet aanvaard in de nieuwsgroep.   RFD  Er kan 30 dagen lang over soc.culture.belgium gediscussieerd worden. Na 15 dagen zal er een herziene RFD gepost worden, die rekening houdt met de suggesties en meningen van deelnemers aan de discussie. Als er voldoende consensus bestaat na de discussies, zal er een stemoproep (CFV) worden gelanceerd. --  Roland Siebelink <[email protected]> Centre for Studies on New Media, Information and Telecommunication Dept. of Communication Studies, Brussels Free University VUB Tel. +32.2.6412412/15; Fax +32.2.6412861.

There was 1 abstain and 3 invalid ballots.  For group passage, YES votes must be at least 2/3 of all valid (YES and NO) votes.  There also must be at least 100 more YES votes than NO votes.  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:  soc.culture.belgium	Belgian society, culture(s) and people.  This vote was conducted by a neutral third party.  Please direct all questions about the vote to Jan Isley <[email protected]>.  CHARTER  The proposed newsgroup soc.culture.belgium is intended as a platform for all information and discussions about Belgium and its people(s). This means all social, cultural, political, economical, historical, geographical and other issues that are, in one way or another, related to the Belgians or their country. Everyone interested in Belgium, regardless of nationality or language, is welcome. Also, it is hoped that soc.culture.belgium will be a meaningful means of contact between Belgians at home and abroad.  Background  Belgium's trilingual status may have prevented the creation of a specific newsgroup about Belgium up to now. Most Belgians may have regarded either soc.culture.netherlands, soc.culture.french or soc.culture.germany as their "home" group, according to their mother tongue. The soc.culture.belgium newsgroup is intended not so much as a substitute, but more as an addition to these linguistically defined groups. In the new newsgroup, Belgians (and non-Belgians) of all languages can discuss issues specific to Belgium, which would strike non-Belgian readers of the groups named above as odd. Also, a proper newsgroup about Belgium will be less confusing to a non-specialized Usenet reader who wants to find information about or people >From Belgium regardless of their language.  Some sites have been reported to carry a bogus newsgroup by the name of soc.culture.belgium already. The official creation of soc.culture.belgium according to agreed Usenet procedures will facilitate access for people all over the world to information about Belgium, not the least for people in Belgium itself.  Rules  Soc.culture.belgium will be an unmoderated newsgroup; thus anyone will be able to post to this newsgroup. But being free to post should also mean being responsible for what you post. All articles posted should have something to do with Belgium or the people living there, however remotely. Insults, "flames" or unnecessary criticism of a group or a person is strongly discouraged. Please read the netiquette rules in news.announce.newusers before posting your first article to any newsgroup, and try to stick to them whenever posting articles.  Languages  English, Dutch (=Flemish), French and German.  Character Sets  Articles should be sent in the standard 7 bit ASCII character set, conform to RFC822. If accented characters are necessary (French, German or Dutch postings), it is allowed to use the standard 8 bit ISO-8859-1 character set. Other language- or machine-specific character sets are not acceptable in this newsgroup.  soc.culture.belgium Final Vote Ack  Voted Yes --------------------------------------------------------------------------- aaa.ine.philips.nl!anton                                       Anton Mandos ac.duke.edu!mg                                                Michael Grubb academ01.mty.itesm.mx!al346123                           Mario A.
