While we have multiple forums for your use, we strongly discourage multiple posts - please select the forum most appropriate for your work and post it there and only there. Like everything in life, our resources are limited and double-posts limit them even further. The only exception to this, and it's an important one, is work originally posted in one of our Workshops. We consider those to be "works-in-progress" and it is completely acceptable - and encouraged - that you post the final result in one of our general forums. In a similar vein, if you make substantial revisions to any of your poetry please feel free to post the revision. Our intent is never to discourage you from posting, but only to stretch our resources as far as possible.
The above passage is from our Guidelines and, when originally written, was meant to include Critical Analysis. Indeed, at the time, we were considering making CA a workshop and listing it as such. I also assumed at the time that people would post in a workshop (including CA) first and then post the final revision in another forum. Well, we all know about assumptions, and I certainly see no problem with reversing that order. The bottom line, really, is usefulness. Posting in two or more poetry forums really doesn't do anything useful - because the audience is basically the same. It just uses up our disk space more quickly. Posting in CA, however, does accomplish something useful.
I guess maybe it's time to update all of our help files and make them more clear.
