This is a formal Request for Discussion (RFD) to remove the 
unmoderated newsgroup rec.games.bolo.  

Newsgroups Line:
rec.games.bolo          The networked strategy war game Bolo.

Distribution:
	news.announce.newgroups
	news.groups.proposals
	rec.games.bolo

Proponent: Big-8 Management Board <board@big-8.org>

Charter:

To allow the discussion of topics and posting of software 
related to the game "Bolo," by Stuart Cheshire, originally 
for the Macintosh. 
  
Rationale for removal:

Both the game and the newsgroup are defunct.  The last
ontopic posts appear to have been made circa 2000.  The
board is interested in closing unmoderated groups that
have, in the past, been used for distribution of 
binaries.


History of the Group:

rec.games.bolo is an unmoderated newsgroup which passed 
its vote for creation by 447:26 as reported in 
news.announce.newgroups on 30 Nov 1993.

Procedure:

Those who wish to comment on this request to remove this 
newsgroup should subscribe to news: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.

For more information on the newsgroup removal process, please see

Formal voting on this RFD will take place five days after
the publication of this RFD in n.a.n.  The formal vote
by the board may take as much as a week.
