Votetakers Comments:

A busy vote for a simple newgroup which IMO shows the flaws in
automatic rejection of fastrack based on 4 objections.

This vote was conducted by a neutral third party member of UKVoting. 
UKVoting is a group of independent votetakers who count votes on

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

to control@usenet.org.uk.

RATIONALE: uk.media.tv.robotwars
- - -------------------------------
The show is not adequately catered for by existing newsgroups. Its
popularity - around 3.5m viewers a week on BBC2, and especially its
cult appeal amongst the main usenet age-group (teens & 20's), suggest
there will be more than adequate traffic to justify it.

CHARTER: uk.media.tv.robot-wars

uk.media.tv.robot-wars is for general discussion of the UK version of
the show : the robots, the personalities, the rules, and any other
related topics.


Advertising is forbidden, with these exceptions:

Suppliers of goods and services relevant to Robot Wars in the UK may
post an invitation to visit their web site or request details.  It
should be of four lines or fewer, and not posted more than once every
3 months. The subject line should begin "ADVERT: ".


Encoded binaries (e.g. pictures, compressed files, etc.) are
forbidden. Such material belongs on a web or FTP site to which a
pointer may be posted. Cryptographic signatures (e.g. PGP) may be used
where authentication is important and should be as short as possible.
Posts must be readable as plaintext. HTML, RTF and similarly formatted
messages are prohibited.
