I think the hints are fine if it has been quite a while and it's obvious it aint about to be gotten any time soon...

I understand... I just feel it's less fun if it's only one person guessing. On the hints I think we already determined that was ok. I understand if Im overruled, but I feel like maybe you should only guess every other person. Because like this someone could go to my question and lists all the colors and basically theyre guaranteed to win. I guess my point is I understand what you're saying the game doesnt hafta be fair... I just like fairness and I think its more fun like that.

Mini, you forget that YOU as a giver decide the pace!

Lets take the example of the two of us now:

I am currently the only one guessing.

But you know what?

You dont HAVE to reply to me saying I am wrong JUST YET. You have a timeline for five days. You can wait until others make their own suggestions :)

See? Works for everyone! We can all do it whichever way we want. :P

PEACE!

That does work. Actually that is perfect... assuming ppl dont jsut go and make bunch of guesses without feedback from the asker. But I guess people wont do that.. anyhow ok Im happy now :)

So just out of curiosity... does punctuation, grammar, sentence structure or spelling fall into any of the categories in depth poetry reviews? If not could it become one? I guess it's technically with other but I feel like that could be its own category.. at least with what I'm writing on this piece now.. lol
3/20/2008 #816
Fractured Illusion
Please write how I shall add it into the first post (like how I did the cateogories) and I will judge if it seems like its own category and then add or not :) If too vague I will ask the peeps here
3/20/2008 #817
Esther Jade
Hmmm, I agree with mini.

What about:

- Technical Aspects (Does the sentence structure compliment the poem? Are there any grammatical errors? Does the poem's punctuation work?)

I know I always have to comment on punctuation in a poem. Another category I thought of was:

- Poetic Devices (Do the choice of rhyme and/or rhythm work for the poem? Does the poet use, or choice not to use, enjambment effectively?)

3/21/2008 #818

@Heda

I think adding those two makes sense.

I always comment on them in my reviews so it'll be nice to know they'll count =]
3/21/2008 #820
Fractured Illusion
Of course they count! I have an "others" category for just such things if I missed something :P But do bring in more official categories to me if you feel they exist ^^

Ok suggestion for Freebies

Once the winners have been announced if they're not like still online talking the question should be closed and the winners can PM the asker with what story/poem they want. Because right now I've been waiting for hours to put up a question bc Frac and concon havent come back...

3/21/2008 #822
Fractured Illusion
I find this reasonable.

Monk can close the topic and ask concon to PM her. Or if she isnt online, I can do it.

I will go add this to the rules

3/21/2008 #823

Another suggestion for the poem depth things.

-Phrasing/Wording (Does a certain phrase strike you as awkward? Was there a certain phrase you liked/disliked? Was the wording confusing in any area?) Not sure if i need more examples there, but let me know what you think

3/21/2008 . Edited 3/21/2008 #824
Fractured Illusion
That one is too close to the Word choice category. I don't see much of a difference.
3/22/2008 #825
Otseis Ragnarok
It's totally different!

Word choice pertains to certain words, while phrase choice pertains to groups of words!

3/22/2008 #826
Fractured Illusion
Its still pratically the same.
3/22/2008 #827
Otseis Ragnarok
No, It's different!
3/22/2008 #828

I'll let Lefty mod decide this one, then.

Poll sug.

OMG I just thought of an awesome poll!! AN EPIC ONE!!

We will all collect our fav virginity quotes (what people say in the posts they took virginity with) and have like, 10 options. Then people will have to decide which is the awesomest!!! :D

Are you guys with me? This of course means we all scurry the Off topic places :P but maybe we can divide the burden?

3/22/2008 #830
Otseis Ragnarok
I don't really like it...

A little too much work for a poll topic...

And the time machine scarred me for life...

3/22/2008 #831

Nay, I say... I say Nay!
3/22/2008 #832

Too bad for you, Ima do it anyway >:D

Hey I just wanna go back to my phrasing thing. I know you said Lefty should decide, but I wanna just say where I was coming from a bit more specifically.

I take word choice to be specific words. if there is a word that just sounds out of place or if they use a really excellent vocabulary. What I said by phrasing is sometimes there are really cliched phrasing or just the way a sentence is phrased makes you go waiiiit what does that mean? Not necessarily grammatically wrong, it just sounds off. When I think of word choice I think of specific words. If you dont want to add it can you at least edit word choice to say in the parenthesis that word choice can be phrasing as well. Because I assumed it wasn't part of it and therefore wasn't counting it as one of the four I need.
