    To my knowledge, no - but if there are they probably wouldn't advertise who they were. ;)

    lol Haunter I am not that good at poetry to be honest. Just fluke it every now and then with one half decent one.

    And yes you should add your name to that list your poetry is amazingly good in my opinion!

    hha Torana your poetry tends to be of a very high quality and i really enjoy reading it. and to be honest, i think most people who post their poetry, and stories, write to an exceptional quality. :)

    lol, about time someone asked. well, at the top of the page their is a link saying cool stuff. click on that and then on statistics. then, on the drop-down menu click on member profiles or registrations and it should show you the percentage of published, self published and non published. and lots of other things too. :)

    You're forgetting the genius of Isis, the cheek of Spartan, the originality of the Everbamar, the halarity of CrazyIvan and the wonder of Myst ...

    And the amazing potential of everyone else - not only refering to new members and brought in fresh talent.

    Isn't it theverbamer!?

    But yes Eoz you have a point! You can't name a few members without naming the rest. We also have had Lewbear who is an acceptional poetry writer and many others. There is also Journey, she writes some amazing pieces and Red Matrix and it really is impossible to name all the amazing writers that have passed through this forum and those who are still here and those that are just arriving.

    There are no writers here that I would put before the rest really, every member here is amazing with their works and deserves recognition for that. we also have you Eoz and you write some exceptionally wonderful poetry that always amazes us.

    I was going to point out those stats but you beat me to it.

    We can't really know for sure how correct that is, but I'd say that 10% of us being published? A bit higher than what's probably true, but if true that's quite impressive, I'd think.

    :D I was curious to know the stats and when I found them I thought I'd post them.

    Well yeah 10% of the members being published is pretty impressive. It is possible that it is less or even more as some members may now be published that weren't when they joined here.
