2006-02-18 [Eveningsdawn]: Chary, I tried that.... Will try again. *wanders off* I do not envy judges. Their lives must be terribly hard.

2006-02-18 [Tawnee.]: [True, plain and simple], i was not proven wrong! because you guys did not change my mind.. so u have no right to say that u guys have changed my mind. And Eveningsdawn... i have been trying to drop it but you guys keep on hassling me... so don't you even try to tell me to drop it when i have been trying to!

2006-02-18 [Charybdis]: Scroll way down, then. Alternatively, go here: <URL:/poems.html?nrs=540> :)

2006-02-18 [Iseld]: so how's the weather where you guys are? it's REALLY cold here, even had to wear a sweater.

2006-02-18 [Teufelsweib]: rain, rain and a bit more rain :P though they do promise snow for tuesday!

2006-02-18 [Christina Loves Adam]: So who all won?

2006-02-18 [Christina Loves Adam]: And when will they give out the badges. sorry to bug just was wondering

2006-02-19 [I stabbith ye]: Starburst, firstly, I am sure the judges were not biast toward rhyming poems, they just thought they were the best, and you may think others are better, maybe the judges even did, but there are the rules which you have to follow: Good grammer, a fantasy type theme etc and maybe the better poems did not fit these rules as well as the chosen poems...Christina the winners are on mainstreet, or you could click on the link 3 comments above your first one, badges, when the delivery people have time...

2006-02-20 [Tawnee.]: Thanx I stabbith ye for being polite and helping me understand why some of the better poems might not have won.

2006-02-20 [~*Lonely Wanderer*~]: [Christina Loves Adam] I am wonering the same thing as you....when are they going to give them out...???

2006-02-20 [Teufelsweib]: patience, they will come. it's a lot of work handing all those badges out.

2006-02-20 [Eveningsdawn]: Thanks, Chary! Congrats to the winners.

2006-02-21 [Iseld]: LOL

2006-02-21 [Teufelsweib]: having fun? :P

2006-02-21 [mesaana]: YAY! Only just noticed :)

2006-02-21 [Corazie]: Every single one of the winning poems rhymes >.<' Euughh...

2006-02-21 [Teufelsweib]: read the previous comments and you'll get a right explaination... I would have never really paid attencion to the rhyming of the poems :S

2006-02-21 [Tawnee.]: Write in a Journal......................... i know what your saying... i said the same thing......... it sux

2006-02-21 [True, plain and simple]: To [Corazie] - Pure coincidence. The poems weren't chosen because they had fluent rhyme scheme, rather on overall quality.

2006-02-22 [RiddleRose]: and what's wrong with rhyming? i like it... and all of the poems chosen were great! congrats to all the winners, and good luck next time to all the rest of you! ^.^ 

2006-02-22 [Christina Loves Adam]: Thanx for telling me I will be sure to check it out and show support for the winners
