A new usenet newsgroup "sci.physics.strings" has been proposed recently. The group shall offer researchers, graduate students and everybody else who is interested in string theory the opportunity to find and participate in discussions focused on topics of string theory, the candidate for a theory of quantum gravity and unification of forces. Creating a new newsgroup on usenet requires a public poll. Everybody may and is invited to vote for or against the creation of sci.physics.strings. The instructions for how to vote together with further background information are given at http://firstname.lastname@example.org . Sci.physics.strings will be created if the poll yields 100 more YES than NO votes and at least twice as many YES as NO votes.
