  • Complaints & Suggestions

    Post here your thoughts/ideas/suggestions for the poetry forum
    What can make it more lively?
    ... it's no surprise, that I got lost in your brown eyes ...

    People could maybe post up poems that they like or links to e-texts. Discussion could be built around that. We could have threads dedicated to the writing of a particular writer or genre - possibly a writer of the month/week thing. Perhaps you might even ask people to put all there own poems into one thread to avoid clogging but then again that might get a little messy with people possibly ignoring later poems.

      Firstly, good job on all the effort and thought u'r putting in Sneaky 2:-D23 2:-D23

      Secondly, it seems like the forum is lively enuff, and hey if we're a bunch of drips then we're a bunch of drips lol.

      What are your ideas?

        Credit goes to Psycho69 & Skinbeard.
        I haven't been paying much attention to the forum lately - my dog is pregnant so all my attention has been towards her

        I also thought that the forum was lively enough - however i did realise that the responses to some people's work were two words like "good work". That can be a bit encouraging to a new writer, but someone who is really interested in it wants more than two word responses, you know?

        So, first off, the other sticky thread was to try and encourage more constructive responses to people's work.
        If that is achieved, I guess we'll see what happens.

        I like Skinbeard's idea of having discussions on writers/poems/e-texts, all that. But if people can't respond to a poem in a constructive way, where are these discussions going to come from?

        Psycho69 also mentioned Poetry Tournaments, sounds real good, but again responses need to be built up.

        So we shall see what happens. But for now, I'm soaking up what the poet's here want

          Collabs would be a nice addition...You could get the perspective of a couple people on a single subject...
          Like Psycho suggested, tournaments would also be a good change...

            To be honest, some poems on here don't really merit much disussion, often they seem to have been made up as the author goes along. Don't get me wrong I'm not chastising people for doing this. In these instances people should be telling the poet how he/she can improve. But I do agree, "good work" shouldn't be people's only critique, it kind of makes the whole thing a bit pointless. The poets on this forum shouldn't be averse to improving their poems either, instead of starting afresh.

            But then again I can hardly talk I've never written a poem in my life.

              Well I'm gonna stick by what I learnt and say that all poetry in whatever form has meaning, some like it and some don't.
              No answer to the criticism of a poem is wrong as poetry is interpreted in different ways by different people.
              I just rather, as you said, that those who leave feedback expand on what they say.

                  Collabs are cool... I've never done one before.

                  But, I have one or two that could happen.. but no ideas have been mentioned as of yet.

                  I'm very curious and eager to try one though.
                  Now let the night be dark for all of me.

                      ^Writing a piece with another person.
                      I've done one I think - if it can be counted as that
                      Mystery & I wrote it
                      I wrote two verses and Mystery wrote the last verse

                          That sounds cool. I'd like to do a collab, but there are probably better poets people could find to write with.
                          no dough ho, you can't fuck with me!
