                      REPLACEMENT MODERATOR FOUND
                     comp.sys.ibm.pc.games.announce

The Big-8 Management Board is pleased to announce that Gregg Seelhoff has
volunteered to moderate the newsgroup comp.sys.ibm.pc.games.announce. 

The new moderator will take over the duties on 04 May 2007.


HISTORY: 

The newsgroup comp.sys.ibm.pc.games.announce was created in April 1993
as part of a reorganization of the comp.sys.ibm.pc.games.* (CSIPG)
hierarchy, that saw creation of CSIPG.announce, CSIPG.action,
CSIPG.adventure, CSIPG.flight-sim, CSIPG.rpg, CSIPG.strategic, and
CSIPG.misc (rename of comp.sys.ibm.pc.games).  Subsequently, the
following groups in the hierarchy were created CSIPG.marketplace,
CSIPG.naval, CSIPG.space-sim, CSIPG.sports, and CSIPG.war-historical.

Approvals averaged one to two approvals per day for most of the active
period of the group (this is an average rate, since approvals were
often batches).  There was an interruption of regular approvals from
May 1996 to November 1996, and a stoppage beginning in August 1998
until the present.  During the initial interruption, and continuing
until January 2000, there were weekly posts of "Internet PC Game
Charts".  There have been no approvals of any sort since January 2000.
