Out Making Anticlines
Poetry is about words. From my point of view, the site would lose nothing if there were a limit of one graphic per topic.
One graphic is the upper limit for me -- if I see a post with multiple images, I assume there's something wrong with the poem that leaves it weak enough to need that much support, and I move on without reading it. I'm probably wrong a fair amount of time, but to me they detract more often than they add.
I don't care either way about smilies. In fact, I think I generally don't notice them at all. We could do away with them altogether and I wouldn't care, though sometimes they can be really cute if they're used to amplify a message.
Oh, and as for sound -- I don't even have a soundcard in this box.
