View Full Version : To move or not to move - The Poetry Game

09-29-2005, 01:27 AM
I'd like to move the Poetry Game, anyone? thread into the Poetry Critique Forum. But, I wouldn't do that without a majority approval for the idea. So please make your vote known.

There are some wonderful pieces in the game that could be published or could be improved to be published, but on an open forum first-rights are already gone - it is one of the reasons I only play infrequently.

It would be an extra click to get there, but worth it, I think.
Shall we move the thread to the private forum?

Sure Alphabet. Actually I have cut and pasted my stuff. It comes to me on the spur of the moment within the game...but I have actually had quite a few lines from poetry I posted there published in another form. So, I'd love to see it moved.

Just a week left to go on the poll... I'm sure there are more than ten of us in the poetry forum.

I'm not a player (yet) but I voted yes... But you should sticky a link in the main forum, with the password.

Yes, I'll add it to the LOOK HERE thread under the fun and games section

if you moved it i think people who are not normally poets (myself included) might feel that it is no longer their kind of thing to post a quick one in (as it may seem direspectful). however, it may also make me want to raise my game a little and get in there amongst the more experienced.

it could work either way i guess. depends what you want. quantity or quality.

As an avid player I agree to move it. Good idea.

i agree with what you're saying about it being moved. i do like the spur of the moment rush i get when i come here, and yes there are good pieces here, hey i even surprised myself... i do however think that participation may fall as a result... but hey watever, i'll still play the game so i say yeah, make it private...

OK - so the vote is over - and sorry to those who would rather have kept it in this forum, but the majority is with moving it to the critique room, our private area where the possibility of publishing first rights to poems posted is not lost.

Some have expressed concern that when it goes to that forum somehow the nature of the game will change and only 'good' poets will be welcome to post...

To that I'd say I've never seen a poem in the game that wasn't welcome and welcomed. That isn't going to change. So I hope we won't lose anyone because of the move across, see you all there.

So yay! Sounds great! Eventually all will follow, they will want to know what is going on!
