About the bumping rule that you just pointed out to someone else...that only mentions dead threads. I think that sometimes it is necessary to give your poem an extra boost because, well, the poetry forum is one of the least used forums. Once your poem gets to the next page, it's usually gone. Forever. Wouldn't you be a bit upset if your poem didn't get any replies and was sent on its way? Just a thought because it pisses me off. Very Happy

Pssh Ella, you told me not to bump my poems once when I wanted comments long ago Wink

Yeah, ok. I guess that actually only would be fair. Very Happy
I’ll just have to tweak rule one so that people will know it’s ok.

I have a question. Can you give a full crit to the poems? Like line by line, giving suggestions, pointing out anything weak, I mean really critiqueing things. I haven't seen any of it done on here, and I'm afraid to do so if I can't.

You sure? People wouldn't be offended. Not that I'm going to be a bitch about it, but no one would be offended or have their feelings hurt? I mean, I wouldn't want to do that if they were only looking for general comments.

Trust me. You should. When someone posts a poem on here, they're opening it up to all sorts of critique and comments. If they don't like it, they can take it off the site. And while you're at it, take a look at my poem *shameless self-adverstisement*

It's called "If This Is What You Want, Then Fire At Will". Also, take a look at the poems from this fortnights GSB Writer's Circle. Critique all the poems for "Faith" And submit something if you can. It'll be awesome.

Of course you can. As they’re telling you, that’s in fact encouraged. Posting a poem here means that you’re open to criticism. So you can go ahead and do what you described. The only thing that wouldn’t be allowed is: “this suck!” etc. But I’m sure you wouldn’t write such things Smile

Yes, make a separate topic for it, using the title as your topic title. All lyrics and poems go right in here. Very Happy

Question: If I was going to post recordings of original music I did, would I do that here or what? Technically lyrics are poetry after all...

I'm not exactly sure, but I know it wouldn't be locked if you had the lyrics in the topic and then maybe a link to the song. Just make sure to follow any other rules and you'll be fine.

How do you know wether your poetry complies to the rules?
Im not sure of mine, yet do not want to get banned for posting ill-written poetry
i have posted some on mibba, but want differnt view points of feedback
is there any such rule to distinguish wether your poetry is in the clear to be posted?
sorry this is random i know ._.

As long as the poem is yours, is finished (meaning it’s a complete poem), hasn’t’ been posted before and isn’t prose there should be no problem. That’s all you have to keep in mind when posting a poem. If you have an unfinished one you can post it in the Mentor Thread.

So that’s how you know if your poem complies with the rules. There is no rule to distinguish whether your poetry is in the clear to be posted, you just have to make sure that your poem pass the criterias above. Ill-written poetry isn’t against the rules. Sure bad grammar, spelling and so on can be annoying but it is of course allowed. Hope that answers your questions ^_^

If we post a poem on here but then edit it, to maybe even an extreme, are we able to re-post it? The edit button is no longer there.
