    LibertyLaida ... i'm sorry to hear of your friend's loss, but i don't understand how posting a lot of poems at the same time (flooding the forum) will help them with this loss? Are they coming to the forum to read them? Why not email the poems to them? How many is a lot?

    When you add a lot of poems within a short period of time, you deny the other poets of having their work featured on the first page of the poetry forum, by pushing it to the back.

    If there is something that I'm missing, a reason that warrants this, please let me know. I'm more than willing to make adjustments if needed.

    Please don't think I'm trying to be difficult, it's just that much has gone into establishing and getting folk to be aware of the rules and etiquette we have here. If others see you doing what is not allowed, they will feel they can do it too.

    Please understand my position. Thanks.

    :heart:

    Hi LibertyLaida ... there's no "limit" as such, regarding how many new threads can be started in a certain amount of time.

    I'm very slow to create rules, this forum was up more than a year before we had our first rule. I'm going to try and let us regulate ourselves, without adding new rules, whenever possible. Hmmmm ... let me see ... i've said before that if one poet has 5 or more of their poems on the first page of the Poetry Forum, they are probably posting too often, within a short period of time. You currently have 8.

    With only 40 spots available and lots of different poets wanting their work featured in those spots ... what do you think the limit should be?

    :heart:
