--------------- English ---------------

This is a formal Request for Discussion. 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.

since this was the only point which generated sufficient debate. I removed
the word "preferably" after English, so all four languages are now equal in

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.
