The request for discussion (RFD) was published  about one month ago, and the discussion surrounding the group's  creation was generally positive.  It's now time to put it to a vote.  NAME:       soc.culture.singapore  STATUS:       unmoderated  CHARTER:     Soc.culture.singapore will be a newsgroup where netters in general     and Singaporean netters in particular can discuss issues related to     the development of Singapore in the areas of science, technology,     culture and education.  VOTING PROCEDURE:    Send votes to:  [email protected]     Preferably your message should include one of the following lines   in the body of the text:        I vote YES for soc.culture.singapore       I vote  NO for soc.culture.singapore    We will be flexible in accepting other wording providing your vote    is made clear and unambiguous.  If we receive more than one vote   from the same account;      o If the votes are for the same side of the issue, We will       count the votes as one vote. We will send email informing       the voter that their vote is only being counted once.      o If the votes are for opposite sides of the issue, We will       throw out both votes. I will send email informing the       voter that their vote is being discounted in this case.    The voting begins immediately and will end at 11:59:59 pm EST   on Thursday, Dec 31, 1992.   In order for your vote to be counted we must receive it before then.  COMMENTS:    1.  My colleague, Siew-Cheong Mar, who first kicked off the dicussion     to form the proposed newsgroup, had asked me to help him to call     for votes.  Another colleague, Roland Yeo, would assist me in      counting the votes and posting the summary of the voting results.     Anyone who has any suggestions or comments can email me     at the address: "[email protected]", but don't send your      votes to me. Send all your votes to the address: "[email protected]"  2.  During the discussion period, it is quite clear that the name of     the proposed newsgroup should be "soc.culture.singapore" instead     of the original proposal "soc.culture.singaporean".  3.  The guidelines for successful creation of a new newsgroup require     that the vote taker receive 100 more YES votes than NO votes, and that     the YES votes be at least 2/3 of all valid votes cast. At the end     of the voting period, the vote tally would be posted as soon as     it is ready.          Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year 1993 to everyone!

The vote tally is 255 Yes votes against 46 No votes.  There are altogether 326 votes sent to the voting account "[email protected]". There are 25 votes not counted as they are  ambiguous, repeated votes sent by the same person, void votes, or just mail messages.  We would like to thank everyone who sent in their votes. And also we appreciate very much the help of our colleague, Roland Yeo, who assisted in setting up the account and in the counting of the votes.  Well, we hope "soc.culture.singapore" would be an interesting newsgroup for the Singaporeans and everyone on the USENET.
