This is a formal request for discussion on the creation of an unmoderated newsgroup, rec.arts.sf.tv.v. This RFD has been posted in accordance with the Guidelines for Newsgroup Creation. This RFD is being posted to the following relevant newsgroups: news.announce.newgroups, news.groups, rec.arts.sf.movies, rec.arts.sf.misc, rec.arts.sf.tv, rec.arts.sf.tv.babylon5, rec.arts.drwho. The RFD and/or CFV may be posted to related mailing lists. Discussion will take place in news.groups only. Please post follow-ups to news.groups only. CHARTER The purpose of this newsgroup is a place to discuss aspects of the Warner Brothers television mini-series (V), V - Final Battle and the hour long series which followed. The intention is to provoke a lively debate on all aspects of the programme and to provide a place where creative works pertaining to "V" can be posted and discussed. RATIONALE At the moment there isn't a newsgroup that deals strictly with "V", yet there seems to be quite a bit of activity recently on rec.arts.sf.tv with regard to the programme. I propose that this newsgroup serve as a central area where people can find out information about the programme and perhaps news of any possible revival. The reason for not requesting a separate newsgroup for creative works is that I feel there will only be a few stories posted at irregular intervals and thus, will not impinge too much on the discussions. PROCEDURE After a discussion period of 30 days, if there are no overwhelming objections to the formation of the group, a CFV will be posted to the same groups as this RFD. The voting period will be as outlined in the guidelines (21-31 days). If the vote passes by a majority of 2/3, and a majority of 100 votes, then the group will be created. -- * Andy Williams * * * | The views expressed are * [email protected] | mine and should not be * * * * * * | misconstrued as representative * Tel: +44 (0734) 203660 * * | of my employer !!!!!
