    Hi Darren and Chris, I would like to see poet's strive to build community. And show respect to other poet's, sometimes showing respect is not saying things that could offend another poet.That's all I could think of right off. When I think of more I will share it. Thanks for sharing this blog:-) Alexis

    I would like to see more Poetry Forms on the submit poem form, there are some common ones that are missing. I still do not know where my replies to blogs are stored. Personally I prefer to know the total number of views rather than the number of comments. I can count the number of comments for each poem. The total count includes those who have not commented. I do not always comment on poems I read, sometimes because of the number of comments already made but I think the writer should know how many times their poem has been read.

    So here is my wish list: Community points restored/ Rob's suggestion to know who has faved us AND to know the NAMES of the new people following us. If you already have 300 followers, how can you know the new ones?? They seem to be put in an order that we can't tell! Other things I want to see: getting rid of reply to comments. Also I would like the longer pages restored where I could see all my comments in my inbox for three pages worth before they scrolled off altogether. Finally, I would like to see more topics and poetry forms to choose from because often the ones I am forced to choose are not true in describing my poem's theme and form! (oh, and a Youtube video for newbies. See below)

    I've always said that Soup needs a special area in BIG LETTERS telling members: How to navigate Soup and work with its functions. Something to that effect. It took me a good year to learn how to do all the stuff here, so I forget how complicated it is to newbies. All the things you mentioned can be done. They just need to be KNOWN how to do them and explained to people. They could do a youtube video that would demonstrate how to do all the different things!! What i personally would like to see is my number of community restored. I had a LOT of points. REgardless of their not being used for anything, I liked knowing there was a number to put to all the things I had done here.

    I would love for the owner of our breeding ground to start back posting his interesting mind in ink. I became interested in the creator's scribbling to ingest more of the mind that provided a floor for us to dance down and interestingly dirty. He's clever!

    I would like to see who has favored my poems. Most of the time I can find out by substituting the usual suspect's PoetIDs into the URL, but one particular poem is faved by an unknown. It would be nice if they added this as a Premium feature.

    syllable counter that can be trusted ask any poet about it and you will be sent off site as the one on here cannot be trusted
