An idea for the impatient. Judges issue themes when they close the contest, not after they judge. Of course this runs the risk of massive procrastinization and build up.

If dudeguy hasn't finished judging by tomorrow night, I'll do it over the weekend.

Good idea, but with the tri-judge system, the next person in line would have to put it out. So I will.

THE NEXT ROUND'S THEME IS: Silence

I'll ask a mod to change the title when the current round is judged. Entries for the new round will not be counted until that time. So save 'em.

Silence? I thought the winner will choose the theme.

Apparently the descision isn't anonymous. Acmed wants this to happen. Dudeguy didn't say anything about this yet. Only you disagree, but Acmed wants the winner to choose theme.

Dudeguy is supposed to choose the theme...

No no, we have two ways under discussion. One, winner decides. Two, next judge chooses; if we go by the second for now because we're still undecided on, then Palp chooses because he's the next judge.

How would such a round be judged? Let the winner do it? They may be swayed by friendships or other factors. Let a judge do it? It's difficult to judge a theme that was chosen by someone else, due to mixed interpretations or by having a confusing or specific topic that the judge may not be familiar with. Perhaps we could give a list of options for acceptable themes after the end of the judging rotation, and whichever judge put the word/phrase selected from the list could judge.

I'm sure the people that post their haiku's won't be swayed by such pitiful things, since most people that post a haiku have pride in their work, and have their own pride.
