well this is interesting. Im in. I dont know if I have time but I make time for it. Certainly seems like a way to test it, its never really been a matter of sex in the realm, more so peice quality. At least now we can see whats happening. So yeps, sign me up.
^I feel the same way about the quality part.
Sure UFO I'm down for this sign me up.
Put me down......Holla

when is this happening.
Sorry Lord Rah no more room (you can be our backup cause your a heavy talent)....and Mnky never heard of you I'm sorry cant have you join...
6 vs 6 this goes down next week...Spring Break(Easter Weekend)

Females Team 1:
Males Team 1:
MANchyld (DaRk NeBuLa)
Females Team 2:
males team 2:
CHECK THE POET-TREE BOARD FOR UPDATED BRACKETS STARTED MARCH 27
Open to the public what do ya'll want to write about...in your teams...what should be the THEME for this tourny?...I'm open to ideas....if nobody has any I'll pick something myself by default and ya'll find out on the day of the battles...easter sunday....these are team match ups so its up to you guys to organize and hook up...exchange emails and what not....the verses should be no more then 90 lines (thats 30 lines each MAX)...lets not get crazy with these...short effective collabos should do the trick
I also need some unbiase selective judges...male and females
Is there going to be a limit on how short a poem can be?
^90 lines alltogether (teams of 3) so 30 lines each.
this is gonna be interesting
yet weird in the same sense..hopefully voir and my other teammate hook it up
i always come nice fool...lol
hey can u give me the actual dates? Im terrible with dates and gotta find out so I get enough time inbetween uni and work. would really help. But all looks good so far, im happy I joined.
mmm i wanted to play....
^Nenita maybe you can be one of my female judges
the dates start NEXT SUNDAY!!....Easter/Spring break week...March 27-April 3
I have a quick idea...
how about you make it like the MTV battle of sexes, and have the boy and girl team vote out a member after every show or challenge. This would take place all the way until it gets down to 2 males and 2 females, then all the old members of the team vote and decide which 1 male and 1 female should move on to the final challenge. That would make for some fun backstabbing and a lot of drama....and would spark a lot of interest
HAHAHA....I like it I like it
(the teams vote out the member they didnt feel brought it....)
great concept....then next round there be only 4 ladys and 4 males....unite the two separate teams and have them go at it....vote out the weakest link
final 3 on 3
vote out the weakest link
then final round decide who should do the final challenge
we can do that
now what about "TOPICS"...whats do ya'll wanna WRITE ABOUT....it be cool if we could come up with a overall theme for this thing like "LOVE"....the ladys point of veiw vs the fellas....or something like that....big themes like "Life"...."Struggle"...."or maybe just poetry itself and what it means to you"
(THIS WORKS GREAT WITHOUT JUDGES....YOU COMPETITORS ARE THE JUDGES.....EVERYONE ELSE GETS TO WITNESS THIS POETIC CLASH OF TALENT....I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
hmm, I'll be back home by Easter Sunday evening lol, cool-didn't catch that when I first read. That's a nice idea, but I never watched that MTV battle of the sexes, so umm, I'll catch on to that too-sounds pretty good.
An OVERALL theme for this, mos def...not love I'm okay with writing about it, but something about life and struggles branches out a little more, in my sense. I guess love does as well, go figure. I'll think about the theme, but make it into something more appealing, and get back at you.
Im not too interested in writing about love, then again its a group thing so whatever is chosen is done. I dont know, you guys chose. I write.
