Neither do I. It seems like a good idea, but we do need more than just the idea for it. As for judging, depending on how many entries we get we could jus have a poll for what people think is the best poem.
Its a good idea, but again, the details such as judging and entries and such would be a hassle, since everyone would want to participate I'm guessing, who would judge, and if the people who entered did, how would it work? work those out, we could definitely do it.
Alright, cool. I was just making sure that the idea could be carried out before I started making plans.

You may submit any type of poem.
There is no limit on length.
Any theme is acceptable.
It must be one that YOU have written, and it can't be one that you've posted on this website previously. I would say that it has to be new period, but whos to say that you couldn't just post one that you've had sitting around for years and just tell us it's new, therefore making that pretty much impossible
Any copying of other member's poems, or copying of any previously-written poems will result in -reputation and disqualification.
Judging will be based on the following:
Emotion - Does the poem emit any kind of emotion, or make the reader feel a certain way? Or does it seem flat and uninteresting?
Flow - Does the poem have any kind of flow? Or does it seem choppy and hurried?
Originality - Have we all seen poems like this before? Or maybe you've created something fresh.
Grammar/Spelling - Is the poem legible and grammatically correct?
Word Quality - Do you use some interesting words to spice up your poem?
Visuals - Does your poem create a picture in the reader's mind?
-All of the judging criteria above will be judged out of 10 (10 being the best).
-All contestants have 5 days to have their poem submitted (after a starting date is chosen of course). Judging will be complete 3 days after the deadline.
Prizes - Aside from +rep, nothing. Don't be so materialistic
Anything above is totally open for debate, these are simply some ideas for judging, rules, etc. If anyone has something that they would like to add, just post your suggestions
