      Registration -- to join PMO ***UPDATED INSTRUCTIONS***   03/14/2017

      Automatic registration has been disabled. If you would like to join the Poetry Magnum Opus online community, use the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of this page and follow these instructions: 1. Check your email (including your spam folder) in a timely fashion for a reply. 2. After you receive a reply, use the "Sign Up" link at the top right corner of the page to create your account. Do this fast. I've lost my patience with people who use the "Contact Us" link to express interest in joining and then don't bother to check their email for a reply and don't bother to join after registration has been enabled. The queue fills up fast with spammers, and I have to spend my time sifting through the rubbish to delete them. The window of opportunity for joining will be short. I will not have my time wasted. If you don't check your email and you don't bother registering promptly, you will find that registration has been disabled and your future requests to join may go ignored. /s/ Tony ___________________ [Registration will only be enabled for a short while from the time your message is received, so please check your email for a reply and register within 12 hours of using the "Contact Us" link. (Be sure to check your spam folder if you don't see a reply to your message.)]

      Blogs   05/01/2017

      Blogs are now accessible to Guests. Guests may read and reply to blog entries. We'll see how this works out. If Guest participation becomes troublesome, I'll disable Guest access. Members are encouraged to make use of the PMO Members' Promotional Blog to promote their published works. Simply add your latest entry to the blog. Include relevant information (your name or screen name, poem title, periodical name, hyperlink to the site where published, etc). If you have a lot of them and feel you need your own blog, let me know, and I will try to accommodate you. Members are encouraged to continue also posting their promotional topics in the Promotions forum on the board itself which is better suited for archiving promotions.

a dual intention with this posting, Ive been wondering if there is common knowledge about the "Show detail" link at the bottom of our forum (for me, this link is both the way I always enter the forum, and makes me feel a part of whats going on right away- almost issuing a guilt-feeling (in this case, a good thing) should a thought impulse me to move away without reading whats new (however, it never KEEPS me from doing such))

 

and secondly, I just wanted to do something silly- but still open it up to critique/advice- 'specially with punctuation, but not only that should any other thoughts come to ye...

It's a fun and handy feature, Rumisong. With it, you're able to see what users are doing in the moment by clicking either "last click" or "member name." I usually use "last click," because it includes guests, too. But sometimes there's an out-of-control bot. When you see like three hundred guests on the board all at once, it's always a bot. In those cases, the "member name" feature works better. The bots aren't necessarily harmful -- we have plenty of bandwidth -- but Alek and I will often ban their IP's; they can still behave like rule breakers in the realm of message boards. Don't forget to also click the "view new posts" link at the top right corner of the board when you log in. Once you log out, the new posts that the link displays the next time you log in will not include the ones from your last visit, only the ones since your last visit.

 

As for your poem, I'll need more time. Tried some tonight, but seems my brain is fried.
