COMMUNITY FAVORITES NOMINATIONS!!!

Post by Berlie » Thu Aug 07, 2003 3:23 pm

The Community Favorites forum is a place for those favorite poems to reside. There are many poems that have been posted by members that have become favorites to the community that fall off the main pages and new members often miss them. By placing a copy of those poems here the poem can be given recognition, read and enjoyed by more.


If you know of a poem that has been posted and wish to nominated it here are the instructions:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Step 1:
First, make sure the poem qualifies. The original poem must have received at least 5 positive replies from members. Replies from the original poster do not count. The poem must have been originally posted at least 2 weeks ago.

Step 2:
If the poem you wish to nominate meets those requirements then reply to this thread with the following information:

The title of the poem
The author
The category it was posted in
A link to the thread in which it was posted

Step 3:
Bump the original post by replying to it and saying that it has been nominated as a community favorite and asking others to come here to nominate the poem as well.

For example: Reply to the original post with:
I have nominated this poem as a Community Favorite. You can second (or third) this nomination here: http://www.poetrypages.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=9173



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Poems must be nominated by at least three members in order to make it as a new community favorite.

After a poem has been added to the community favorites the nomination posts will be deleted to keep this thread free of clutter. I am a little slow sometimes getting the nominations added, but I do get to them eventually!

It meets all the requirements. Who wants to post it?

I'll do it. :mrgreen: Let me know.
Entering the sanctuary of my mind may lead to perils of unknown magnitude.......... hold on and embrace the ride. Feel the tolls as we pass from existance into my sought domain of twisted reality. -negatv: 5/05-

If I changed anything I have done in my life I wouldn't be me. Personally, I kinda like me. I'm an asshole, but I'm my kind of asshole.

Friends are what help me guide myself through life. I just have to find the right direction first. -negatv- 10/06
