Post elsewhere if you don't want to be restricted in your creativity. That is all I can tell you.

The Rainbowfish
                 
             
                There once was a Rainbowfish
                  whose tail liked to swish
                   she slept in some mold
                  and got caught and sold
            so she couldn't swish her tail in her dish.

It could be. Unfortuneately, this isn't too poular. It may be because Schmiddy is a faily new member, compared to some, so some may not understand how awesome it is :3 OThers, however, would like a place to post poems, not be judged.

Why would you write in all bold? Why? I can't see a reason...

Also, you might consider that there are already two poetry contests going with a merit prize, so with that and some restrictions people might like as to the type of poetry they are allowed to submit, they might not be interested.
Or the theme might not be to their interest either. After all, all contests see some ups and downs.

Or perhaps it's all your bold writing...

Tell us how you really feel Cen.

Probably like Cen said. There are two other poetry contests where you get a merit if you win. Also it might have to do with the time of year where people are focusing on school for finals and stuff.

Uh, why? Maybe because I want to get people's attention? I'm a judge on this contest, I want to distinguish myself from the others, that's all. Gah.

He,he, that's just mean-spirited, Cen.

It's not mean-spirited, then I would have insulted you.
I just really don't like people using all code in their posts for no reason. And no, being the judge is not a reason to yell at my face (which is what I read all bold posts as).
It's annoying, it's semi-against the rules and it's really, really annoying. It's also annoying.

That said, people most likely know you are the judge, so you don't have to distinguish yourself. Besides, if you think every post of yours is important enough to bold, and others don't, they will start fazing it out, and then you stop being distinguished at all.

Anyway, seeing these were the only replies since your call to arms, I would suggest judging, then changing the theme (and the poetry form, perhaps) and see if that helps out. If not, it might not be the time for a contest like this, and it would be worth it to have it lay low for a while.
