    Thank you PS for a great website where we can share our thoughts, poems and, sometimes, frustrations with poetry forms and formats. I, for one, have grown and honed my skill under the friendly guidance of many well versed poets. I am in debt to all. Love, Suzette

    One thing I feel would improve contests is to give the host the power to delete poems that do not come close to the rules of the contest ie. I want a sonnet and people are posting haikus

    Me too! That's what I talked about it my soupmail to them that no one ever answered. They didn't even respond below so maybe I am person non grata? I don't know but I would like the ability to kick poems that don't fit the contest out of the contest!

    Thanks for letting us know about these changes, We will adjust, sooner or later.

    Tho I like a friends network... I fear it'll develop cliques that keep many out... I could be wrong and enjoy it... I like where blogs are the network because they seem to be open to all and encourage participation. I would like to be able to click on a spot organized for PS problems where things aren't working. Perhaps under 'resources".

    I had some suggestions for improvements to the contest administration area and soupmailed you. Did you ever get my soupmail? I never got a response.

    I like seeing the pictures of the top community builders here! And I don't mind all the changes. But please can you restore my ability to use the backward arrow when I am commenting from one of my poetry pages and trying to go back to it again and again. Also so I can get back to contest pages easily again or navigate old pages of my poetry friends. The arrow key was so useful to do those three things and I really miss it!
