This is the second and final call for votes on the proposal to create
EMPLOYMENT-WANTED/bionet.jobs.wanted and revise the charter of
EMPLOYMENT/bionet.jobs to be reserved only for postings of job
openings.  We are running several votes simultaneously, so please be
certain to follow the directions further below *carefully*!  Thanks!

----------------------------------------------------------------------

			       Proposal
                               --------

I have been contacted by a reader recently about the possibility of
splitting the BIOSCI EMPLOYMENT/bionet.jobs newsgroup up into two
separate groups.  The first group would be to post job openings and
the second group would be to post position wanted ads.  Both groups
would be unmoderated, and no discussion leader is needed for this kind
of general usage newsgroup.

The easiest way to do this would be to retain the current
EMPLOYMENT/bionet.jobs newsgroup but change its charter to be for
posting only positions available.  A second group
EMPLOYMENT-WANTED/bionet.jobs.wanted would be created as a forum for
posting only position wanted notices.  The e-mail addresses for this
latter group are proposed to be

wantjob at net.bio.net
wantjob at daresbury.ac.uk

in conformance with our 8 char address length policy.  Adding only one
new newsgroup (instead of canceling bionet.jobs and creating two new
groups for jobs.offerred and jobs.wanted) also simplifies the
BIOSCI archiving system.

Voting is open on the EMPLOYMENT-WANTED/bionet.jobs.wanted would be
created as a forum forposting only position wanted notice newsgroup
and will run through 24:00 hrs Pacific Time on 21 June 1994.  Please
send your vote to either of the following addresses:

Address                               Location        Network

biovote at daresbury.ac.uk               U.K.            JANET
biovote at net.bio.net                   U.S.A.          Internet/BITNET

PLEASE BE SURE TO FOLLOW THE FORMAT BELOW - WE OFTEN RUN MORE THAN ONE
VOTE AT A TIME SO A SIMPLE "YES" OR "NO" MESSAGE WITHOUT THE NEWSGROUP
NAME MAY BE AMBIGUOUS.  Your vote should contain a single line:

YES on WANTJOB

if you favor creation of the newsgroup above or

NO on WANTJOB

if you think that the creation of this newsgroup will adversely affect
the BIOSCI system.  If you are simply not interested in participating
in this newsgroup, please don't cast a NO vote, but instead just don't
vote at all.

The newsgroup proposal must receive at least 80 YES votes to pass and
the number of YES votes must be greater than the number of NO votes by
at least 40.  Discussion of the newsgroup proposal is now closed and
we strongly discourage posting any messages in other forums about the
fact that a CALL FOR VOTES has been issued.
