The proposed newsgroup is intended to generally provide a medium for those  interested to express, share, and exchange their views, ideas, and feelings  about Germany and Germanic culture.   Possible discussion issues include aspects of Germany    - culture, history, philosophy, ideology, geography;    - societies, traditions, customs;    - literature, poetry, art, folklore;    - languages, books;    - science, technology;    - food, cookery;    - local events, news, programs, economy;    - communities abroad, problems, needs; and    - *things* normally discussed in the "soc.culture" newsgroups.  Postings may be in either English or German, but posters should bear in mind, regardless of which language they post, that some readers may not be able to read/translate your postings.   To Vote, send e-mail to:    [email protected]    OR simply reply to this message.   Voting period will last from Feb 28th, until Midnight, March 20th, 1990.   As per USENET newsgroup creation guidelines,    - Votes MUST be explicit; they should be of the form "I vote (YES) for      the creation of newsgroup soc.culture.Germany as proposed" or "I vote      against (NO for) the creation of newsgroup soc.culture.germany as      proposed". The wording doesn't have to be exact, it just needs to be      unambiguous.      In particular, statements of the form "I would vote for this group      if..." are considered COMMENTS and will NOT be counted as votes.    - Only votes that arrive DURING the voting period will be counted.    - ONLY votes E-MAILED to the vote-taker will count.    - Votes POSTED to the net for any reason (including inability to get      mail to the vote-taker) and proxy votes (such as having a mailing      list maintainer claim a vote for each member of the list) will NOT      be counted.    - At the end of the voting period, if 100 more YES/create votes are      received than NO/don't create votes AND at least 2/3 of the total      number of valid votes received are in favor of the creation, a      newgroup control message will be sent out. If the 100 vote margin      or 2/3 portion is not met, the newsgroup will not be created.  I will post a weekly voting reminder.
