sweetwoodjax: I love this site, but am getting frustrated by the prompts. I don't mind losing but people need to have the courtesy to review your work if you're paying out. I have lost the last two prompts to people that never bothered to review me. Just a rant to relieve my frustration.

    flylikeaneagle: I think that we should review all of the writer's work and VOTE. I share your frustration. I'm outside painting while the sun shines! flylikeaneagle

    twesberry: When a contest receives a total number of votes of 23 when there are only 5 entries - something is wrong in"denmark". Further more when I am told, go ahead and vote for yourself because many are already doing it, there's a ton of things wrong in "Denmark".

    jules4jesus: yes i can understand that i kind of feel the same way a friend pointed out to me that it is always the high raking poets that win they need different levels for people with different experience of writing poetry

    seaglass: All these are part of the reason I don't do contests or prompts.

    Jaxpoet: I agree. Some time I think the fix is in. It does not take many votes to win. And many times the writing does not meet the guidelines of the prompt but they win anyway. I get the rant and frustration. Jaxpo

    write hand blue: There are several major problems with these competitions. I question whether they should even be called competitions at all.

    Joy Graham: I find the reviews I get in contests are extremely critical and harsh. To me there's nothing wrong with saying it's a nice entry. They don't need to trash my efforts just because they don't intend to vote for it. I rarely get many votes and feel your pain. Join me in the pity party on the bottom of the totem pole. Wine and cheese served and I'm often the hostess!

    Pyrrho: I agree. Such action is like voting for yourself, not reprehensible, but also not admirable.

    I refuse to participate in competitive poem writing. When I write a poem it is because it comes from within and fights to get out. Not because someone decided to initiate an inane competition.

    indianjack: I've only been here for three days, so I'm struggling to find out how everything works. You reviewed my Christmas poem and I gave your review six stars, and endorsed you or whatever it's called, and gave you 2 of my four whatever those little things are, you so can't possibly be pissed off with me, are you?

    Gypsy Blue Rose: I hear you. Contests are okay but I am more of writing whatever I want. Last year I was entering the contest every day, and most of the time I didn't win, even though my poems got really good reviews. I think the problems is the people who are reading our stuff don't vote. Anyway, I don't waste my time anymore. I understand your frustration.

    Gypsy Blue Rose: I am sorry, sweetie pie, I know how that feels.

    Happy Birthday!
