Voting and Appeal Guidelines

This vote was conducted by a neutral third party member of UKVoting.  
UKVoting is a group of independent votetakers who count votes on
behalf of the uk.* hierarchy and other 3rd parties.

The rules under which votes for the uk.* hierarchy are taken are
posted regularly to uk.net.news.announce or can be found at the
following URL:

The UKVoting web pages can be found at <http://www.ukvoting.org.uk/>

There is a five day discussion period after these results are posted
to uk.net.news.announce. 

Allegations of irregularity should be sent to control@usenet.org.uk.

Rationale and Proposal from the RFD


  There are already existing news groups in the uk.* hierarchy for
  discussions for 5 out of the 6 national BBC radio stations.
  With the introduction of the 6th station, the proposer believes
  that creating a newsgroup for the new station would complement
  the existing BBC radio groups, providing people with a place to
  discuss station.

  The creation of a new news group uk.media.radio.bbc-r6 would be
  complementary to the exiting groups, conforming to the existing
  uk.* Usenet hierarchy and serving a need  for a place to discuss
  the radio station.

  The proposed name uk.media.radio.bbc-r6 has been chosen over the  
  name uk.media.radio.bbc-6music as the BBC has a habit of
  renaming their radio stations.  The name will also fit into the   
  current naming of the BBC radio newsgroups. 

Proposed Charter: uk.media.radio.bbc-r6

  This is an unmoderated newsgroup for the discussion of BBC Radio 6  
  music which is currently broadcast via DAB digital radio,
  digital satellite television (channel 911), and telewest digital
  cable television (channel 909) and globally over the Internet via
  its website located at the URL http://www.bbc.co.uk/6music.

  Topics reflect the programs broadcast on 6music and its wide
  range of music.
