First of all an apology - if I seem a bit slow getting back to you on issues and PM's it's because I'm rather busy for the next week or two. Full service will be resumed shortly!
Second, we've enabled a couple of new features. Each time you hit the "New topic" button you'll see:
1. A reminder above the posting window to encourage you to reply to the poems of others. There's also a link to the "Guidelines".
2. A "drop down box" and a "comments box" under the posting window encouraging you to leave a note about the type of feedback you are looking for. You don't have to use these features, but if you do the moderators will seek to ensure that your wishes are respected. This feature has been enabled only in the Poetry Zone and Prose (The Workshop has its own default set of rules regarding posting).
As an example I've used the new feature, as you can see below.
Type of Feedback Desired: Brutally Honest
Author's Comments: Hit me with your worst! Especially interested in what people think of the volta in the second stanza.
