As many of you have doubts or questions regarding the Daily Poem, the Daily Poem Bosses have written a FAQ that will hopefully answer all your questions.

If you have a question that is not yet answered in the FAQ, please ask it in the comment box and we will answer it.



Due to the size of the FAQ, it was divided into seperate sections. Below the section listing you can view the top three questions.

DPF - General

DPF - Daily Poem

DPF - Daily Poem Bosses


Top Three Questions

Q: How do I post my poem?
A: It's easy. Make sure that you've read the Daily Poem Format first, as your poem needs to follow that example. Then go to the Daily Poem page and click the button saying "Edit this page" located in the wiki info box at the right-hand side. You will then be able to edit the page. Make sure you post your poem at the bottom!

Q: How do poems get posted on the Main Street?
A: One of the Daily Poem Bosses selects the poem and features it. No, the poems do not get posted in turn and yes, that makes the Daily Poem subjective. However, we do have our own guidelines to ensure that everything is handled fairly!

Q: Why was my poem removed?
A: This can be because of various reasons. We will state this either in the comment box or in a personal message. If your poem is removed because it does not follow the Daily Poem Format, just reformat it. There is a section on the page you can copy/paste. Note that you will be warned in the comment box if your entry is in danger of being removed, and you have a day or two to fix it.

2004-04-24 [ElvenCrystals]: When I try to post a poem it says invalid password. What's the password so I can post on Daily Poem?

2004-04-24 [Ocean Dreaming]: There is no password. :/ *goes check that out*

2004-04-24 [Ocean Dreaming]: :/ Seems you could edit it now, though. Weird...

2004-04-24 [Cristina]: [ElvenCrystals] wouldn't you be trying to post in daily_poem3 and daily_poem4?, those are the only pages pasword protected.

2004-05-18 [space88blue]: Ok.... When you are doing it in the format, writing your poem that is.... do you number the lines that are spaced?

2004-05-18 [Ocean Dreaming]: Ah... so THAT is how people manage to add in the // in title and username.... Anyway, to answer, no we don't. It's mentioned on the daily_poem right after naming the limit, as a matter of fact. ^-^

2004-06-01 [Cristina]: *points at page* something is going on with the bold tags... correcting and grumbling

2004-06-13 [brandi_080786]: Can I post more than one poem? And if my poem gets onto mainstreet page do I get a message that its on there from the guard people?

2004-06-14 [Ocean Dreaming]: Except on the XXL Daily Poem you can post as many as you like. If your poem is featured the Daily Poem Bosses will notify you and update the needed information. ^-^

2004-06-14 [brandi_080786]: ok thank you
