       this is for our own good. I'm just trying to do my part in preserving the spirit of this site, hence my lack of submissions. I got comments, and now, its time for me to give. see ya in the comments one and all (including the ones who are keeping this site up to snuff, you know who you are).

    Make the font bigger!! Double Spacing Back to recent posts.

    dotsComment you lazy motherfuckers!dots

    the posts have severely gone down, and so have the comments.

    I know I'm commenting my ass off.

    what about you?

      i have thoughts on this...very strong thoughts...

    i do think that criticisms/ critiques are very helpful for poets...

    i also think critiquing just for the sake of having something to say is not good...like saying ...i just keep looking at this piece and can't find anything to critique so i'll force myself to say something just to say i "critiqued" is a shame...

    because if a piece is good, and it makes us react in some way..then it is good..it's not like we are not "doing our jobs" unless we find something to nit pick....

    and i think there is nothing wrong with comments that just show reaction to a piece...

    how the piece makes us feel when we read it, what it reminds us of etc.
    when i read the works here, i like to just read them and enjoy, relate, react...if the piece has obvious problems that cause a hinderance in my reading...if pieces don't flow, or fit or have symmetry..yes, i point that out..or errors that hurt the impact..

    we are all different in style...and voice...and sometimes we may be tempted to try to turn every poem into something we would write...but then poetry would be all the same and pretty boring in personality...

    but i saw a response to your post that i totally agree with....
    poets need some kind of response to their works...even if it is just a reaction or a feeling the piece gave them...

    we need to know something is happening...or if nothing is happening, why it is not.

    also there are obviously those who feel the others are just here for them...sad when that happens...they just keep posting and absorbing commments but get no reciprocation...

    poetry on a site like this is about sharing...giving all the poets attention...even the beginners who need help and encouragement...

    well, i have said more than enough...

    but i am glad to see a post like this...needs to happen more often so that some get a good kick in the poetic pants.

      The danger here is that most of the time if people read a work and think they have nothing to add to it, they don't comment at all. What some fail to realize, is that the author wants feedback. Period. Be it just in the form of a reaction or a suggestion.

    One innovative form of commenting I'm thinking of:
    Whenever one reads a poem, one should leave a poem- which reminds him or is in any way comparable to the poem he has just read- as a comment.

      I should do something, so I will. Like...


    Take more vitamin c... and..........

    Save the whales by helping male and female whales get it on. You know (actually, I have no idea), if we rubbed ourselves with whale hormones and then rubbed male and female whales with it, we might relaunch Greenpeace's career.

    Yes. Or....

    I could comment on this, saying (with philosophical doctor-like glasses on) "Yesss... hmmm.... (deep, meaningful groan/sigh)... well, the problem is.... you see, young chap, well....

    People need to eat more oranges.

    It makes you more bouncy. Like an orange. It makes you....

    Grrrrooovy, baby.

    Can anyone else tell it's Friday here and I've just finished work?

      Comment you lazy [censored]s!

    the posts have severely gone down, and so have the comments.

    I know I'm commenting my ass off.

    what about you?


    I suppose there's always the possibility someone will make this a crusade and raise the flag of discontent over the ruins of ES. But the problem remains that so many people want comments that few are willing to take the time necessary to offer insightful critiques rather than 'one-size-fits-all' pats on the back that actually say nothing about the write. There should be a thread that details the basics of literary criticism. Other sites have them, and they're flourishing. What about here? Just my thoughts.

    At least you are making the point sharp enough for some butts.

      Yeah I agree I know I'm guilty of not commenting anymore, but that's because I have become very discouraged lately because of the lack of comments I receive. I try and I try but it never seems to get me anything back. Everyone on this site is just way to lazy nowadays.

    I haven't been here in a while but from what I've seen I agree with your first line.

    Think Feedback more than Compliments :: [ Guidelines ]

    1. Be honest.
    2. Try not to give only compliments.
    3. How did it make you feel?
    4. Why did it make you feel that way?
    5. Which parts?
    6. What distracted from the piece?
    7. What was unclear?
    8. What does it remind you of?
    9. How could it be improved?
    10. What would you have done differently?
    11. What was your interpretation of it?
    12. Does it feel original?


    Be kind, take a few minutes to review the hard work of others <3
    It means a lot to them, as it does to you.
