Ok, This thread is being created because obviously there are, and have been, many threads created asking for critique, help, advice seeking and general come-look-at-my-work, pleas.
So, here's how this will work: If you fall into any of these categories, newbies, as well as established members, and you'd like to be critiqued on a certain piece, need help, advice or just want to gain some minion as followers of your work, post it here with a brief request of what you are looking for.
BUT.... first post your work in your "MY POEMS" section, then put only a link to it here with your request, to give a heads up to point people to your work. Those interested, can click the link and comment as they see fit on the actual piece, thereby eliminating the need for thousands of individual threads to be created, as well as eliminating the need for this thread to get derailed with unnecessary conversation.
So there you have it--post your links, post what you're looking for, and keep the discussions on the actual piece of writing.
Let's see how well this works out....
