    Would like for the realm to drop a few ideas you may have that might make this place a little better and bring some life back into it.

    Anything you can think of off the top. If you have anything we can use for the next writers challenge, drop them here.

    Side note-I think the one thing thats slowin the realm down is the lack of actual feedback, but you can't do much about that except do the same to them. I was going to ask what happened to the Poet of the Month and everything, but it seem like the realm is moving kinda slow this week, a lot are busy with things.

    I'm all in favor of like a Hylighted poet for certian month or what ever, but not a poet of the month...

    I think a poem of the week would be nice too, but there are just so many...

    The Poets challenge should be voted on and rewarded with a highlighted poets bracket. In other words, say we have a poets challenge of writing something and the mods from the realm, the tree, and the intercourse come in and vote at the end of the week/month on it. Who ever is the decided winner get interviewed and their favorite poem stickied. And perhaps even 5-10 points donated to them. That'll bring people in here who aren't even poetically gifted, lol. But there has to be rules and shit to it, and yet we know that already...

    poem of the week...would keep a lot of people writing often
    i think we should maybe have a poet interview for each month
    werent they already doin that in here?
    anyways for the poets that have been around for a minute
    any questions you want to ask them
    one poet for each month

    we already do have a tourney type of thing
    the poet tree league
    not to many people competing
    so if people want to enter a tourney maybe they should come check the poet tree section out.

    I think the board is pretty dope as is, I mean the flow of feedback is kind of wavering, but not much you can do about that. One thing I noticed that most of the poets here are fairly busy people as am I since i work 70+ hours a week.. so it kind of makes it hard for leaving feedback... but anyways the league and the tournament deal would clash... but a highlighted poet would be great. Also, the mods should get together once a week and find a consistant poet and do a quick interview with them... either through aim or pm's here on the forums or whatever.. it would be interesting to see what makes us all tick.... and possibly a random collaboration... like once every other week... the mods pick two poets from the realm that they feel would mesh.. and give them a topic to drop to



    Just a few thoughts

    ^I like the way you thinking.

    Man I'd love to join the tourney, (even if I didn't do so good,) but I'm not because I can bet that I may not show up b/c of something and I think I'd be wastin the mods' time or w/e.

    I told ill the other day the realm is in a coma right now, but as long as we keep on giving feedback to those in return things will be better-I think thats the main issue.
    I wonder what happened to Capella, he was good.

    lol, I had the idea to start a collabo tourny, but felt there wouldn't be enough participants, so i kind of had that on the back burner for a while... but ti's nice that you brought it back up again... and if you wanna finish the other tourny then make a post for it in the poet tree, get some topics and we'll do it

    I'm feeling the tourney idea....never been in one as a poet that would be interesting, challenging and fun

    then the winner can get that "highlight" recognition everyone is so concern about....and maybe some rewards I'll be down to offer some prizes....(ex: Music and poetry books)

    Let me know whats up

    LRS_UFO@Hotmail.com


    also the feedback is a downside here...one of the main reason I left this board and never stayed around but I'll stick it out this time and see what happens...I reccommend everyone to read at least one poem a day....(either in the morning or at night)....so far its work for me and I have a REALLY busy life....with school and 2 jobs....but I still find time to write and peep others....its all love and it helps us grow

    my 7 cents

    PEACE AND GODBLESS
