    REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION
    moderated group rec.photo.digital (moderates existing group)

    This is a formal Request For Discussion (RFD) to change
    rec.photo.digital from an unmoderated group to a moderated group. This
    is not a Call for Votes (CFV); you cannot vote at this time. Procedural
    details are below.


    RATIONALE: rec.photo.digital

    RPD is a high-traffic group with too many trolls. Too much profanity.
    Too many for sale (FS) and for auction (FA) posts. Too many personal
    attacks and flame wars. Too many off topic posts.


    CHARTER: rec.photo.digital

    This group is for the discussion of all aspects of digital photography,
    including digital cameras, scanners, image manipulation software,
    printers, and CD-ROM technology.

    All postings made to this group should conform to existing Usenet
    guidelines (see news.announce.newusers for guideline documents). This
    group explicitly prohibits the posting of commercial advertisments or
    other promotional material, whether or not it is an any way related to
    photography. Binary postings (i.e. non text postings) are prohibited.

    This group is moderated.

    Moderation policies:

    The moderator reserves the right to cut off the discussion of a topic
    when its "signal to noise ratio" has dropped too low and reject postings
    on recently discussed topics.

    Other rejection criteria:

    For-sale notices (FS)
    For-auction notices (FA)
    Profanity of any kind
    Binaries of any kind
    Commercial links and spam
    Off-topic posts not marked [OT]
    Flame wars and personal attacks
    Anything Lionel does not want

    END CHARTER:


    MODERATOR INFO: rec.photo.digital

    No profanity. No off topic, for sale, or for auction posts. No personal
    attacks or flame wars. Moderation will be at the sole discretion of the
    moderator.

    Moderator: Lionel <>


    PROCEDURE: rec.photo.digital

    This is a request for discussion, not a call for votes. In this phase
    of the process, any potential problems with the proposed newsgroup
    should be raised and resolved. The discussion period will continue for
    a minimum of 21 days (starting from when the first RFD for this proposal
    is posted to news.announce.newgroups), after which a Call For Votes
    (CFV) will be posted by a neutral vote taker. Please do not attempt to
    vote until this happens.


    DISTRIBUTION: rec.photo.digital

    This RFD has been posted to the following newsgroups:

    news.announce.newgroups, news.groups, rec.photo.digital,
    rec.photo.equipment.35mm
