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
