    Poetry battles...

    edited October 2007 in Poetry / spoken word
    Just a thought...

    Here's how it would work:

    We put up a topic for the battle in question, and the battling poets explore and translate it in their own way as a poetry piece. The rest of the forum votes on which poem is more extensive in its creaticity, imagery, emotion, yadda yadda yadda (you get the idea).

    No dissing, belittling or mentioning of your competitor in your piece of course.

    So what does everybody think?

    I think it would be a nice branch-off and aleviator for the forum

    Holla back :wink:

      ^^ Yea Rhyme, i remember you suggesting this a while back. I'm not sure what happened then either.

      Alright...

      So far so good feedback wise. I also really hope that this goes through.

      In the meantime, those who're interested in battling, please just let it be known on this thread.

      *fingers crossed :wink: *

      Thanks for showing interest.

      For this to work though, everybody's gonna have to be more active ya'll.

      No-shows will be a bad start, that's why i've delayed the first battle thread.

      The first battle will be Kast1 vs. SQroot.

      Kast, i've already got your assurance, thanks for that :wink:

      SQ, please check in so we can get this moving.

      bless

      To all the Poets

      Guyz, in order to save this post we have to act swiftly, i prpose the following:

      Since my battle with Sid ended in a tie, how about we postpone that rematch till Addict gets back.

      For now let me manage the rest of the battles, since i can't include myself or Sid, it thus remains neutral.

      I'll be able to announce the next contestants,as well as their topic as soon as i get feedback.

      I need atleast two peeps to second my recommendation, before i can act.

      If no one likes my idea, then please do assist by making suggestions.

      Guyz we really need to act quick on this one!

      Peace out

      P.S with all due respect to Addictive Soul though

      umm... good thinking mate! but i think we should let the "mod" decide. would be better if she appointed u herself, u dig?

      Thanks Konko

      But just to clear things, i was not organising a coup or anything, i was just trying to get things moving cause Addict has not responded for a while now. I'm sure she has a good reason as to not be able to keep in touch, afterall we are all human and we don't always have access to the internet.

      What i was proposing on the other hand, was a short-term solution, so that we don't stand around moping all day long.

      So i hope that gives u better idea of where I'm coming from, but i really appreciate the feedback none the less.

      So what do you guyz say?
