Okaloosa Island, FL
I frequent lots of poetry boards on the net and here are just some of my casual observations on piptalk...
The main poetry board is moving way too fast...and the strange thing is the other boards, other than teen, hardly move at all. Something needs to be done to "split" the main poetry board or encourage in some ways people to start using the alternative boards for dark poetry etc...many GREAT poems are rolling off page one into oblivion after only a hour or two with very few reads. This is very frustrating to me I don't know about others. The odd thing is if you put it in dark poetry or something it just sits there for 24 hours with no comments at all. This is the main problem I see with piptalk....everyone is trying to use the same stage at the same time...the other rooms seem to move like mud with little interest while the general room flies at the speed of light...and we are all missing alot of great poetry because of that. On other poetry sites I visit there are 6 or 7 or more active vibrant boards where the load of poetry is spread out over general, love, dark, haiku/haibun/etc, song lyrics, freeverse, short stories, sonnets, etc...and it works alot better that way in my opinion. Just my 1 cents...thanks
