I've been wanting to make some changes to how the poetry contest system has been working, but I figured I'd let you guys decide whether or not to put some changes into affect. Audio Poetry Contests We've got picture poetry contests, so why not ones with audio as well? It sounds weird, but it could be cool. This would allow us to extend the themes to specific noises such as perhaps water dripping. It's up to you guys though. Removing Word Poetry Contests I've been thinking over this one for awhile. I've noticed people tend to the enjoy the contests more when we use an image as a theme over just some random word. I feel pictures are much more powerful than just one-word or two-word themes, and I think it helps inspire people more when it comes to creating their poems for the contest. I won't remove them completely, but if you guys want this I'll make sure more upcoming poem contests include more images over words. Shorter Contest Times A lot of people have been telling me that the contests go on for too long, and I can't help but agree. The three week system has been working fine, but if you guys want I can shorten it down to two weeks for both submitting the poems for the contest, and then the voting process as well. That should make it so you don't have to wait a month for another poetry contest. :3 Multiple Poetry Contests Managing two poetry contests at once shouldn't be too much of a pain. It's possible for me to host more than one poetry contest at once. How this would work is the contests would go back and forth. While one contest is in the voting stage then another would start up, and so on. This would allow for many more poetry contests to be done within a month allowing for a lot more themes to be included in the contest in a much shorter time span. Let me know if you guys have any suggestions on how I could improve the contests, and what you think about the above suggestions. I will be setting up a poll in the near future that will include these suggestions and more and I will allow everyone to vote on what they want. The top three highest voted for suggestions will be implemented while the other ones will be ditched or implemented at another time. That being said, feel free to discuss among yourselves down below and I will get back to you with more information on what's happening with the changes. Thanks!
