Re: [gpsstash] Do we want a usenet group? (RFD)

FWIW, I like the idea of a rec.gps.* hierarchy of newsgroups, but what
about the existing group: sci.geo.satellite-nav? This group seems to be
the default "gps" group currently.

>>> 12/26/01 07:16PM >>>

This is an informal Request For Discussion (RFD) for the creation of
world-wide unmoderated Usenet newsgroup rec.geocaching

I'm open to other naming suggestions like rec.gps.stashhunt

Which might have the advantage of including similar sport/hobbies in
the hierarchy. ie. rec.gps.confluence

I'll have to write up something formal and submit it to the following
groups for approval and discussion.


I have over 300 posts on the Groundspeak forums, so this isn't a case
where I want to change things without giving what's available a try.

I very much prefer a the text based medium of usenet to the web based
boards on Navicache and Groundspeak.

This not only allows me to read and respond while offline (as I am
with this message) but to easily archive for portability when desired.

If I am alone in this, I won't submit a request to the above listed

Please feel free to contact me with any concerns or questions.
