                      REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)
            remove rec.games.online.mmorpg.world-of-warcraft

This is a formal Request For Discussion (RFD) to remove the unmoderated
newsgroup rec.games.online.mmorpg.world-of-warcraft.


RATIONALE: remove rec.games.online.mmorpg.world-of-warcraft

This newsgroup was created as part of a trial "bulk creation" newsgroup
creation process, in which "obvious" newsgroups were created without
specific proponents or charters. Subsequent to the group's creation, it
was discovered that an active group, alt.games.warcraft, already exists
for this topic. In order to prevent fragmention of the Usenet WOW
community, I propose that the newly-created
rec.games.online.mmorpg.world-of-warcraft be removed before it's widely
propagated and established.


HISTORY:

The newgroup was issued on Monday, October 8, 2007.


CHARTER:

The newsgroup line is:

  rec.games.online.mmorpg.world-of-warcraft     World of Warcraft

This group has no official charter.


PROCEDURE: 

The full group removal procedure is documented here:

  http://www.big-8.org/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=policies:rmgroup

Those who wish to comment on this request to remove this newsgroup should
subscribe to news.groups.proposals and participate in the relevant threads 
in that newsgroup.

To this end, the followup header of this RFD has been set to 
news.groups.proposals.

All discussion of active proposals should be posted to news.groups.proposals.

If desired by the readership of closely affected groups, the discussion
may be crossposted to those groups, but care must be taken to ensure that
all discussion appears in news.groups.proposals as well.


DISTRIBUTION:

This document has been posted to the following newsgroups:

  news.announce.newgroups (moderated)
  news.groups.proposals (moderated)
  rec.games.online.mmorpg.world-of-warcraft
  alt.games.warcraft
