CHARTER OF REC.GAMES.FRP.ARCHIVES

     This newsgroup will serve as a temporary archive for postings
     that should be archived on one of the anonymous ftp or
     mail-server sites, and which do not belong in one of the
     other roleplaying newsgroups. Therefore only finished work
     such as net.books, campaign background, convention modules,
     the tabolport project, fiction, poetry, compilations, and so
     on should be posted here. This newsgroup is not for
     discussion purposes, and discussion of anything in this
     newsgroup should take place in the appropriate roleplaying
     discussion group.

HISTORY OF THE GROUP:

rec.games.frp.archives is a moderated newsgroup which passed its vote for
creation by 357:69 as reported in news.announce.newgroups on 18 May 1992.

PROPONENT:

Alexander Bartolich <alexander.bartolich@gmx.at>

PROCEDURE:

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.

In the course of the removal process four formal announcements are posted
(MVI, 1st RFD, 2nd RFD, and LCC), each taking two weeks. At the end of the
process the B8MB will vote on the issue.

Available options for rec.games.frp.archives are:
- leave the group as it is
- remove the group
