Of course they will, or at the very least an equal amount of headaches that occurred in CA will continue. Hence my comment earlier about the dilution of the negative effects in a larger pool of posts. But thatís a good thing.

Look at CA just before it closed - there was more critical analysis going on in the Teen forum with a lot less friction. Anyone who wanted a critique had a chance to get one and anyone who didnít want one was left to get on with what they were doing, everyone was happy.

Of course now that CA has shut the critics have picked up their ball and wandered off home.

So why all the long faces and determination to leave?

Pick a forum, post a poem asking for a critical analysis or in-depth reply and Bobís your aunty (no offence Bob) integrated analysis - as Peter Kay would say - trust me itĎs the future, or was that pizza?

I'm kind of agreeing with Grinch here, though there is a good reason why CA in other forums has worked quite well (and why it hasn't here for a while) which I think you are missing (mailing you and Pete on that later).

Though a forum run by Doreen P might be rather good.  I wondered where she got to.  Ty Brad.

I think it would be highly  inappropriate for  this ~Hole in the wall gang~ to shanghai open or any other forum here.

I hope if that happens  the appropriate moderator will delete, lock or band those post.

Come on people we are stewing in our own juice .

Itís time to put our tale between our legs.

Tower, this is Chopsticks over and out .

Whoís talking about shanghaiing another forum?

You can post a constructive criticism in any forum, you always have been able to, in fact itís encouraged, thatís why the ďencourages constructive criticismĒ flag was created. For some reason that fact seems to have been forgotten, people seem to think that constructive criticism was restricted to the CA forum when the flag was checked. The reality has always been that crits in CA were legitimate in CA regardless of the flag status and legitimate in any other forum if the flag was checked - thatís why my flag is unchecked. If I posted in CA I wanted critiques, if I posted in open I didnít.

In future I'll change my flag and only post poems I want in-depth replies to.

Iím not suggesting that people use any single forum for constructive criticism, Iím suggesting they use them all.

Chopsticks to Heathrow, can you patch me to Grinch.

Grinch, I donít consider you part of the ~ Hole in the wall gang~ , therefore I think you can post anywhere you like and ask for critique .

You have always been a gentleman.

Can you see this thread started in Open ?

No.

But then again I donít think it should have been started in CA either -  thatís why I suggested at the start that it would be better suited to the alley.

Iím beginning to think someoneís caravan is lost in a sandstorm. Time to check your compass, Chops, and head for a new oasis - CA is closed.

Perhaps Balladeer could use your help in Workshop or, if you still want to post poems for in-depth critique, just note your request in the title line and, no doubt, one of the  ~ Hole in the wall gang~  will be glad to help you out. They very graciously give up a lot of their free time to help those who want to improve their writing.

ďIím beginning to think someoneís caravan is lost in a sandstormĒ

Thank you for such a fitting epitaph , but I would have preferred a shorter version.

Maybe ~~ Here Be Chopsticks, Forever Lost In A Sandstorm ~~

Way too much drama, Chops.

Anyway, I have an idea about something you could do to help a certain group of folks on this site with their poetry, etc. You donít have an email icon or I would have sent it to you, but I'll put my email back up so if youíre interested, shoot me off an email. Itís really a pretty good idea, think you might actually like it.

Jennifer, thank you very much for the offer ,but  I have already accepted a position with the work shop. The pay is good and Balladeer is putting me on track for tenure.  I canít say to much about my new job as I was hired ahead of some of the wall gang with more seniority .

Btw, Iím not even suppose to be here .

The best, Sticks .

Best of luck in your new position, Chops. Iím sure youíll be a tremendous asset to the Workshop forum. And donít let Balladeer cheat you out of overtime pay. Iíve heard he can be a wee bit tight with the green.
