2005-12-03 [silent screams and forgotten dreams]: I would write one...but I have no clue what kinds of presents different races would give eachother, let alone how to write about it...maybe next year there will be a theme I can write about...

2006-11-27 [Dark Side of the Moon]: very true!

2006-12-09 [Heather Thomason]: hmm i wonder if i can write a poem for this.

2006-12-10 [Once upon a dream]: This is my first time doing any contest on elftown. ^^ I'm excited! Goodluck to everyone.

2006-12-11 [Ariandra]: Is prose acceptable for this contest?

2006-12-11 [Linderel]: Umm, no. This is the Christmas poetry contest, so I don't really see where that question spawned from.

2006-12-13 [babymama]: congrats for what

2006-12-13 [Sunrose]: Sorry?

2006-12-15 [blue cavalier]: <img:44166_1164145221.gif>

2006-12-17 [Papa Don't Preach]: when does it get judged??? :S

2006-12-17 [shotokan_gal]: Not until after the deadline.

2006-12-17 [Papa Don't Preach]: the deadlines next wed, is it?

2006-12-17 [shotokan_gal]: Yep. Then sometime after that, when the judging is complete, the winners will be posted on mainstreet.

2006-12-17 [Papa Don't Preach]: ok cool ^^; first time entering so i was a bitty confused. thanks for helping

2006-12-17 [Linderel]: Umm. I'll understand if it isn't allowed, but can collaborated poems be submitted? :3

2006-12-17 [Papa Don't Preach]: collaborated?

2006-12-17 [Sunrose]: Err I don't know :p

2006-12-17 [Linderel]: Who knows, then? :O

2006-12-17 [Papa Don't Preach]: what about poems which have been written in response to another, even if they have the required specifications?

2006-12-17 [Sunrose]: No one does :P

2006-12-17 [Papa Don't Preach]: anyone going to answer my q?

2006-12-17 [Linderel]: Sunnies, should there be done a some kind of decision, then, for future reference? :P
[Papa Don't Preach]: I don't see why not. You wrote it after all, right? As long as it goes with the theme, I don't think there's anything wrong with it being a response to another poem...

2006-12-17 [Sunrose]: I believe we said in the art contest that it is OK, as long as not everybody starts doing this :p

2006-12-17 [Linderel]: Mmmkays. :P

2006-12-18 [Papa Don't Preach]: ok, i did write it myself but i was just checking this was alowed, and it does go with the theme, thanks ^^;

2007-09-25 [GoneGone]: Wasn't the theme for last year's competition snow?

2007-12-05 [A.M.C]: Where do we send the poems to once we've done? :)

2007-12-05 [Linderel]: You put it on Christmas Poetry 07, page 1.

2007-12-06 [Aldalome]: Does it have to be a christmas carol, or is it allowed to be about elftwoners singing carols?

2007-12-06 [Lady of Lore]: it would be a carol that would be sung, so a carol about carols I think is alright because there are some christmas songs like that...

2007-12-07 [Lite]: Can you create a carol to the theme/tune of an already existant song and alter the lyrics?

2007-12-07 [Doormat]: I miss the days where there were no themes :P.

2007-12-07 [Linderel]: There's more challenge this way!

2007-12-07 [Lady of Lore]: It's better if you make up your own rather than parody an existing song.

2007-12-13 [Lite]: Whaddy'all think of my poem? If it isnt funny, I tried...

2007-12-26 [Aldalome]: Go to Mainstreet, news, and scroll down: the winning poems are in the Daily Poem slot, right above the featured member slot.

2007-12-26 [Misty Lady]: Congratulations and very well done to the winners...great poems and well deserved....luv Misty xx

2008-01-05 [Heather Thomason]: so who won?

2008-01-06 [Tickle Me Emo]: At the risk of sounding pushy, when do we get our badges? Normally I wouldn't ask, but seeing how the art and poems have already been removed from Mainstreet, I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing out on anything...

2008-01-06 [Linderel]: It sometimes takes a while due to people being busy in real life. Don't worry, you'll get them. :P

2008-01-07 [Doormat]: Does the new page one wiki mean we can submit for next year's competition? 

2008-01-07 [Linderel]: Uh, no. It is merely readied for this year.

2008-12-03 [Ariel123]: Is there going to be a New Years' poetry competition? I think it would be fun!

2008-12-03 [Linderel]: Well, there is a New Years Day Festival - not official, per se, but you might still enjoy it. :)

2008-12-30 [Grandamelf]: I love my colored birdie, Thanks everyone!

2011-03-15 [Kaimee]: Congrats :D

2011-12-02 [FamousPanda]: Someone want to give me an idea for a theme for my poem?

2011-12-02 [Lord Josmar]: Christmas?

2011-12-02 [FamousPanda]: I think that's a little broad.
