Now even non paid members can change thier profile layout. They have to start with a premade layout however.

I bumped it to 35. I felt 50 was too many and too hard to look through.

2 to 1 rule on Forum Workshops now enforced through the code.

I've programmed it so that you have to post two replies to poems that are not your own in the Poetry Workshops before you can post a poem to the workshops.

Everyone is starting off at not having replied to any poems because I'm a mean person and really, its just two replies.

If you write 10 replies, you are then able to post 5 poems before you have to reply again. For the regulars this isn't going to be a problem. For those who never reply, well, they now have to.

Updated poet rankings:

Added Page Slam wins to the list.

Added Master Poets listing in rankings: GotPoetry Master Poets (10 or more poems voted on 5 or more times each and at least one Page Slam win to be ranked)

Once we get 15 Master Poets, I'll replace Master Poets with the Top 15 Poets listing on the poems and page slam page.

The reason it is 5 votes or more for the master category is because it is 5 votes or more for the Top Ranked Poems screen.

Removed the word Poem: when you use the [code] tag on your poems. Its redundant and doesn't add a thing.

Changed the formatting a bit.

Recoded the Blogs comment system. It now uses the same algorythms and shared settings of the News comments.

Therefore you can now reply to a comment, and they will nest, etc. Email notification if you have it turned on works for replies and new comments.

Here's an example:

You can now set a poem to not be rated. Doing so takes it out of your rankings also.

Neat. So I changed most of them to do not rate, but then i thought, meh, i'll just change it to registered members only...it wouldn't let me. Any particular reason? Also, if we can change it to do not rate, why can't we just have it rateless to begin with? (IE, remove any rating and comments that may have been on it)?

You sure it wouldn't let you? In firefox, sometimes the contents of the drop down doesn't display, but its actually there.

As far as removing your ratings, I am undecided if I want to allow that. I suppose if I did it so you could only delete ALL of the ratings for a poem then it might not be too bad. I worry about people playing too many games with the rankings.

And quite a nice one too... Very Happy seems alot more organised and spacious imo.

Thanks! I've been trying to figure out the best way to redesign the front page for a while now.

For those who like the old front page better, just click News from the top of the main menu.

Paid members (those who've subscribed) can now export all of their poems from the finished poetry section and save them as a file on their local computer.

Why? Well, its easier than cutting and pasting them one by one.


Go to www.gotpoetry.com/My_Poems.html and look at the bottom of your list for the Options box.
