Reviews and Editing Posts

Post by cameron » Tue Jun 27, 2006 4:50 pm

In order for this forum to operate, all posters are required to review at least 2 poems for every one they post. (This is quite reasonable; many forums insist on 3 or 4.)

Recently there have been a number of people who are seriously under-achieving in this area.

Reviewing a poem takes time, effort and concentration. If you're not prepared to put in that effort, then you can't expect to receive crits yourself.

In future, myself and the mods will be moving work by those who are overdrawn into a hidden holding area until their accounts are back in the black.

We don't like wielding the big stick, but it is necessary from time to time to ensure that this place remains a thriving, constructive environment.

It's common sense really: you put in, you take out - everyone's happy.

thanks
Cam

Whenever you edit a poem, please leave the original version unaltered so it can be used for comparison. Just add the new version above the old one - ad infinitum (if needs be).

Thanks folks.

How about spelling mistakes? Even keep the typos in the original?

No, you can get rid of ani speling misteaks, no need to keep them.
