ha, gonna go check that out. the poem i really wanted to vote for is the only one that doesn't show (on my screen) a vote-for-this-entry button! i contacted lobo about it and it's showing on his computer. wonder if i need to shut my pc down and reboot to effect a change? gonna go look now and maybe do that, see if it makes a difference?

the poem i can't find the vote for button is Innocence returning

It's actually the one Missy already pointed out having been posted three times. Nominators need to check to see if what they're nominating has already been nominated. It's clearly in the rules no duplicate nominations allowed.

Ahavati said:I'm for a separate "Discovery of the Month" myself.  The Poem of the Month should not be complicated. The more rules that are changed and/or added transforms something historically pleasant and fun into a total nightmare. Let's just return to the way it was ( sans the anonymity aspect unless it can be feasibly addressed ) and let it be.

There is so MUCH room for more, e.g. - Discovery of the Month, Spoken Word of the Month, Whatever of the Month. This would also be more members and content to feature across the networks.  Why stuff so much into one which has always been pleasant and drama-free ( until now ), when there is so much room for more?

Just my two cents.



This.

I already mentioned early that simple is best and won't be a nightmare for whoever is managing the comp.

Other new comps can be managed by other people and more people will benefit by more refined exposure.

ah, okay.  I haven't been around for over a week so I overlooked some of the discussion.

Honestly, three nominations or not, Missy no longer cares.

I am opting out from voting in this month's poem of the month.  It seems too much of a mess with missing poems, one poem shown 3 times and new rules were implemented without prior notice.

At last. Ethics. Exactly my reasoning for stepping out.

Ms. Butters, did you nominate the poem "innocence returning'?
If you nominated it, then its like voting for 'yourself' thats why perhaps you're not seeing the option to vote underneath it

Upon looking again, i nominated Souladareteases poem which was not technically a spoken word, it was a video of music only and I don't see it as part of voting options??  How was this nomination excluded???  He has never won poem of the month ever.  So he's not a repeated 'offender' lol.
And his video was only music not spoken word.  
What the hell is going on, now I'm truly annoyed.
