Default [Meta] *Poll Results* Proposed new, moderated digital photography group (rec.photo.digital.moderated)

Well, first of all, I'd like to thank you all for participating in the
poll, regardless of whether you voted in favour of it or against it.

I've finally gotten around to sorting through all the responses to the
poll & tallying it up.

In favour: (either as proposed, or subject to changes)
32 votes in the group, 6 via email.
Against:
15 votes in the group, 0 via email.

A total of 38 at least broadly in favour, (including 5 respondents
wanting changes to the initial proposal), vs 15 against.

That's a pretty good indicator that people are strongly in favour of a
cleaned-up version of RPD, & that it's worth our time & effort to get
the process started.
As soon as I have time, I'll write up a more formal proposal to be
discussed here. This version will also include changes based on peoples'
comments & questions during the poll, & on input I've received from
various experts on how to make the moderation system work quickly &
smoothly.

For those interested in checking my results, or verifying that I've
correctly tallied their opinion, I've added a summary of people's votes
to the end of this post. Please comment if you find any errors, or if
I've missed your vote.

Since it won't change anything here - immediately at least, and not by
fiat, I say: What an offer, and thank you. What's to lose? Give it a go,
and if it doesn't have legs, nothing lost.... except your time, for
which: tia!

My Usenet experience leads me to prefer _not_ moderated newsgroups.
I tend to self-moderate through the use of killfiles in cases where
(after unhappy reading) I don't want to read another individual's
future messages.

I would support the new group. I would not support the linkage of RPD
and
the proposed RPDM via any crossposts or automatic posting mechanisms.
(In favour, if modified)

Depends on the changes.

(a) Would you support or *vote for* the above proposal, exactly as

I might very well. (I've just looked at it for the first time, and
who knows what people may bring up in discussion I haven't thought of
yet).
(In favour, with changes)

From: Ron Hunter
Message-ID:
I will not take part in ANY moderated group. Past experience with them
has been totally unsatisfactory. Free exchange of ideas is suppressed
in the by moderators who allow only the 'party line', and contrary
opinions are simply not allowed to be seen.

Getting to your question, I'd rather be in control of what I read vs.
having someone else decide for me. Put me down as a "no" on moderated.

(c) Would you *vote against* the above proposal?

Yes
(Against)

From: Charles
Message-ID:
I don't think this solution would fly. I think there would be
objections to automated cross posting like that. On several levels. I
for one would not want my posts to one newsgroup automaticly posted to
another.

I'll vote yes for the moderated group. Navigation has been getting

I abstained, thank goodness - since you found it necessary to post every
participant's email address. Not that mine is in my posts anyway, but I
wonder if it was a very good idea.

Hi Lionel. Remember, I changed my vote to in favor as proposed. Check the
thread again.


I wonder how many other mistakes that simpleton made?
