Hi guys,

This is an important announcement regarding the future of this contest. After deliberation on the status of the Haiku Contest, we will no longer be giving any merits to the Haiku Contest for the foreseeable future. The judging has been lackluster or nonexistent. It fails to adequately highlight why the winner was chosen over all other entries. The judge has also consistently shown to be unable to handle the position in a professional manner. This is why we have decided to no longer honor any merits won in the Haiku Contest. We ask that you find a new judge that can behave in a professional and thorough manner. Simply, we ask for merit-quality judging for merit-quality winners. If the judge proves to be capable, we may consider restoring the prize.

I would be happy to try and take up the judging, though I don't know how my judging would compare to others. I have lots of free time this summer, though, and any events over the time of judging could be easily planned around, if someone else would be willing to judge. I doubt that I would suddenly be pulled away for extended periods of time. However, like I said, I may not be phenomenal at judging but would be willing to try if no one else steps up to the plate. I promise, if I were to take the position, to be as unbiased as possible and will judge as quickly as I assess the contest has been judged to the best of my ability.

You're hired. You have my vote.

Thank you for doing something about this Gantic. When I complain about the judging, no one listens. Glad your layin down the law.

I'm going to be... "professional" about this and not complain... But I must ask why? What have a done?

You're inconsistant in regard to the field of profesionalism.

Otherwise, I'm up for jeol voting. It seems like an honest character/charactor/charactar/IReallyNeedMyAutoSpellCheckBack.

Okay, so we have come to a conclusion!

Me and dudeguy45 will be switching on and off as judge. I know I know, "I'm unprofessional and stupid" -Gantic. But dudeguy will judge this round and I guess I will... learn? Yeah. So, my pledge is to definitely add why the winner won, and NO MORE PRANKS. Except if it's against Mav. That'd be fine. :)

So, my apologies to Gantic and mods, participants, and anyone else that I hurt. I will change! The haiku contest will continue!

Trust me you didn't hurt anyone! i thought it was spoes to be for fun, yes i know about the merit. But i thought acmed was doing a great job. I hope the merit will continue, because it encourages more people to join in writing poetry. Which is what this is about.

Anyway XD here's my poem again if it was missed->
