To be fair in your example you would have only drawn unless the other person voted for their own poem and there aren't many people that want to be that guy. Otherwise I'd argue winning isn't in the spirit of things. We're writing poems which are meant to be feeling's and idea's given form in words, so churning something out for a vote makes it seem like the heart isn't in it. Plus if I'm being honest I will say the reward for winning is very underwhelming to me, but I don't use OMF that much anymore so to be fair I'm not bothered about showing off a title or ribbons. 

 

My main idea for improvement is that people should talk more about the work rather than just voting. Speaking of which I have just posted how I feel about the entries by editing my last post if people want to take a look. Sorry if my wording is a little hectic. It makes sense in my head but I'm not sure.

It's generally recommended to voice your opinion ;)

Let me just say I'm surprised to see the forums have a poetry contest. That's really cool. The last poem I wrote was 4 years ago for school so it's fun to experience it again :)

Always good to shake the moths out  :D

 

I was pretty impressed when I found we had one, even more so when it was one the longest running competition. Oben sure doesn't give up when it comes to this. Anyway welcome to here, I hope to enjoy your stay~

Was going to wait of Diez to get his butt into gear but he takes forever so maybe this will hurry him along.

Ah I was a little worried people might struggle but didn't want to do just generic Halloween... I'll get something up soonerish.

Otherwise have a bit of vocaloid~

@Oben

Mine was a bit late so sorry about that. I'm just assuming that you're waiting for more entries as usual since it was still up!

Yes! That is exactly what happened! Any other possibility like me simply forgetting is down-right wrong!

(Voting is up: http://onemangaforum...ry-contest-35/)
 
I also entered, but mine is kinda bad >_>
