              MODERATOR VACANCY INVESTIGATION (MVI)
              moderated group comp.emulators.announce

This is a formal Moderator Vacancy Investigation (MVI), begun because
moderated newsgroup comp.emulators.announce is not functioning, and may have
been abandoned by its moderator(s).

This investigation will attempt to verify the reasons for non-function,
and may result in the removal of the group or the selection and instal-
lation of a new moderator.  In practice, the Big-8 Management Board
considers the third alternative--changing the status of the group from
moderated to unmoderated--as likely to cause more harm than good.

NEWSGROUPS LINE:

comp.emulators.announce	Emulator news, FAQs, announcements. (Moderated)

DISTRIBUTION:

news.announce.newgroups
news.groups.proposals
comp.emulators.announce

PROPONENT:

CHARTER OF COMP.EMULATORS.ANNOUNCE

  This is a moderated group with announcements about emulators, emulator
  ftp sites, new emulator images, and emulator FAQs.  Emulator
  discussion seems to have a fairly high noise level, so this will be
  useful for important news and coordinating FAQs for newbies.

RATIONALE:

Probe posts to this group resulted in bounces.
