                       1st Call For Votes
                       ==================

                     SOC.CULTURE.SINGAPORE
                     =====================

This is the first call for votes for an unmoderated group for discussion
of topics related to the cultural affairs of Singapore.
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!

Hi everyone,     

We're pleased to announce that the support for the formation of newgroup
"soc.culture.singapore" is overwhelming. 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. We hope to have 
interesting discussions and contributions from everyone on the USENET
in the New Year 93.

Best Wishes and Happy New Year to every USENET readers!
