    How about we have a feature poet of the WEEK instead? That way a lot more folks get a chance to shine. A simple way to do that, is to have like a weekly submission with deadlines and all that shit....a minimum vote, vote deadline etc. and the mods have the final say-so who it is of course. Just my little 2 cents.

    you should not do it by the amount of post or activity
    becuase it will flood the board with everyone wanting a piece of the pie
    you should just have a tally at the end of the month with all the recognized good pieces and then get a vote and go from there
    just dont want peeps to loose feel of their shit thinking they have to write to impress other on looking peeps

    Fuck amount of posts and activity. The quality of their poems is how it should be, plus if they give time to show love to others with ACTUAL REAL feedback..

    That's why I say make it feature poet of the week...instead of going thru all that trying to accumulate folks stuff for the whole month. Or then again, why not have a feature POEM for the month/week?

    yeah we should just have people vote, instead of leaving it to one person to pick it out...that's alot of pressure

    it should definitly be about quality..not posts or activity. i know ya'll have read that once piece that gets you like damn....the piece that is featured should get everybody like that. base it on feedback..or vote..or something that gets everybody involved and just isn't one or a couple of peoples opinion.

    I say a committee of people choose poet of the WEEK. I think we all deserve to each have our work showcased. I don't think it should just be a quantitative thing. I think you just pick someone who has 3 or more poems and sticky them as poet of the week. Showcase those poems and ask that person to submit 1 or more NEW pieces. Really do them up big.

    I'll tell you now I don't want the position as poet of the week.
