At the edge and a doorway,TX
First off, I would like to thank Julie for the beautiful idea to start up this forum.. So many ideas so little time.. One of my ideas I see that Ron has already covered.. I like the flashing folder..
I don't get to respond to everyones post and I do visit the websites.. I know that this was just for the moderators, but I thought that I would join in too.. If there is anything that anyone needs me to do then don't hesitate to ask..
I just had one question.. I'm a celebrate kind of person.. How do we remember when a poet here has a birthday without them having to post it?
No offense to you Julie, but is there a better way than put good and excellent as the button.. That makes me think of high school and noone ever wants to see a bad on there paper.. Though I do like the one button method for us poor folks that don't have all the time to respond to everyones posts, but want to show that they did read it and enjoyed it..
I agree with Poet deVine in saying that it will make ppl lazy.. Just push a button.. I know that there are a few that will never do anything like that, but there are a few I'm sure that will.. Another thing is will ppl still read the poetry all the way through if they know that they don't have to write out an answer.. I know someone did a post in the Alley about not reading pieces and just responding to anything.. I'm sure that that piece made more ppl think.. Now that they will have a button will they stop thinking and start pushing a button?
I don't want to sound rude, but these are things that I was wondering.. Another thing that goes with this line is: Do you think that ppl will like it if someone drops in on there piece and says Kilroy was here? If you had time to put that then why don't you have time to jot down a few thoughts about the piece.. Sometimes I don't even get a chance to write I was here.. I get home, read, cook, shower, change, and then to the next job.. I'm sure that all of you understand what I mean. I was just wondering if ppl would take offense to such a short response. I don't know what to do.. HELP!!!
Live in my world just once and you'll find yourself enraptured.
