This is a Request For Discussion on the creation of a unmoderated newsgroup
to be named soc.culture.czecho-slovak.

NAME: soc.culture.czecho-slovak
(The spelling reflect the new name of the Czecho-Slovak federal republic as
of 1990. Alternatively the more established spelling Czechoslovak)

STATUS: unmoderated

CHARTER:
Provide a forum for the discusion of various issues relating to Czech,
Slovak and Moravian life and culture.

RATIONALE:
While there are rather few people inside the CSFR as of yet who have
direct access to the news hierarchy, this may soon change. In addition
there are many Czechs and Slovaks working or studying at institutions
outside the CSFR, people of Czech or Slovak origin, and people with a
passing or permanent interest of Czech and Slovak issues.

There are currently no appropriate forum for this discussion
(Czechoslovakia is about the only hole in the USENET map of Europe).

VOTETAKER: None as of now (open for discussion)

The discussion will take place during the four weeks following today
April 27 after which a call for voting will be issued.

3  ABOUT THE PROPOSED NEWSGROUP

NAME: soc.culture.czecho-slovak

STATUS: unmoderated

CHARTER:
Provide a forum for the discussion of various issues relating to Bohemian,
Slovak, Moravian and Silesian life and culture as well as to the life and 
culture of minorities living in the CSFR territory or stemming from territories
which have been part of Czecho-Slovakia in the history (like Sub-Carpathia 
- Podkarpatska Rus).

We propose no restrictions as to the languages used for postings in this
newsgroup. English, Slovak and Czech are expected most often. 


RATIONALE:
While there are rather few people inside the CSFR as of yet who have
direct access to the news hierarchy, this may soon change. In addition
there are many Czechs and Slovaks working or studying at institutions
outside the CSFR, people of Czech or Slovak origin, and people with a
passing or permanent interest in Czech and Slovak issues.

There is currently no appropriate forum for this discussion
(Czecho-Slovakia is about the only hole in the UseNet map of Europe).


4  VOTING 

You can vote be sending a mail to

                [email protected]

and indicating your vote as the "Subject:" of the message.

(Please note the underscore in the ID and the dash in the node part.)

If you want the newsgroup to be created, use one of the following strings:
                FOR     ANO

If you do not want the newsgroup to be created,use one of the
following strings:
                AGAINST    NIE    NE

The votes will be evaluated manually. This gives you a chance to deviate from
the above lines slightly (on your own risk) but your vote must stay UNAMBIGUOUS
in the sense that it is absolutely clear whether you vote in favor of group 
creation or against it. We will let you know in the case your vote were 
ambiguous. You can vote again if this is the case. 

If you cast more valid votes then the LAST one (according to your
"Date:" slot) will count among those who reach us. Additionally, you
can confirm or change them (see two sentences before) by sending a new
mail.

You cannot ask third parties (like your friends) to vote instead of yourself.
Each person is entitled to vote only once. If you possess multiple computer 
accounts around the world then you can use only one of them for vote sending.



4.1  Time Schedule

The voting period starts on Thursday, June 9 at 0000 GMT.
The voting period ends on Sunday, July 1 at 2400 GMT.

The full vote tally including each voter's address, name (if available) 
and vote will be posted to UseNet, CSINFO-L and SLOVAK-L on Monday, June 29. 
A five day waiting period will follow when both UseNet authorities and the 
voters can check the results and correct errors. If the voting ends up 
with a positive result, the newsgroup will be created around July 4.


4.2  Technical Hints

You will get a short acknowledgement after your vote's arrival, but any 
acknowledgement that bounces will not be re-tried.
If your message does not get through several times, please try to forward your 
vote by another Internet node. Only as an example, we mention the following 
nodes which can be used together with their respective address syntax:

cz_sl%[email protected]                     for voters in Europe
cz_sl%[email protected]        for voters in North America



ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

Special thanks are addressed to Mr. Jonny Axelsson 
([email protected], [email protected]) for starting the procedure
of newsgroup creation and for his numerous postings, analyses 
and fingers crossed.

See you in the new group -- Do videnia v novej skupine -- Tesime se na slysenou
