A Haiku is a Japanese lyric verse form having three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables, traditionally invoking an aspect of nature or the seasons.

Well, that said, heres the rules:

1) The Haiku must be original (no plagarizing)!
2) It must fit the weeks theme
3) It must be submitted before the deadline
4) It must be submitted for the contest (no using works previously written)
5) One Submission per user
6) The Same User cannot win twice in a row (but there welcome to submit!)

Hopefully oneday the winner could get a merit...

The Deadline will always be a Wednsday, so the deadline for the first theme will be Wednsday, September 2. The theme is The Pond

(special thanks to 'thisisnotanalt')

And why did I not get a mention last time?

Lots of people did not get a mention. I think it actually was explained too. "Too short time".
Titlechangeright?

@Bronze: Good idea. I'll have to wait to ask Carlie about the merit. At the end of the month, she should be back. But if there is no merit prize by the next judging or at all... the winner will get to pick the theme. One thing though, it must be nature-related.

@Cenere: I asked NoName

@Cenere: I asked NoName

Yes, I noticed, but since he did not act upon it, I asked Strop.
I think Nemo has been offline a bit, which is understandable considering how many users hating him.

Oh, thanks. I was going to ask him... but he said he only wanted to deal with urgent spam reports... so I didn't.

I can see why NoName isn't on much... after all those threads calling him a nazi and other crap that day...

It is a little easier for me because I actually talk to both him and Zophia (asked Zophia last night, but she couldn't access AG).

Along with siding with trolls, saying he is bad mod, that he is going after a selected few and not appreciating that he usually is the one active mod.
It is a little sad.

Sorry... didn't really understand that. I appreciate the fact that he is usually out there all the time taking care of spam and stuff. Sometimes, he locks threads when I see no actual reason to do so :/ But at least he is doing a good job!

Ok, gonna go off topic here, but let it be known that I highly respect NoNmae as a mod. I think people with leadership responsibilities have to be stern sometimes. You can't always joke around. NoName does his job well, and he shouldn't change his style of moding just because some little kids get mad.

He is.
And I apologize if the title change stuff looked like I was being c-cky.

He is young too so no wonder if he takes it close once in a while. Many of the other mods do too.

But yes, sorry for taking you contest off the rail with that.

Small hazy windows;
Little portals into our
soul. What do you see?
