REGARDING MY CONTEST 'TRUST BE BABY THIS IS LOVE'


Blog Posted:7/14/2017 5:55:00 AM

I REGRET TO HAVE TO SAY THIS BUT I AM HAVING TROUBLE

JUDGING THIS PARTICULAR CONTEST.  AFTER CHOSING ONLY

FIVE ENTRIES, MY CONTEST PAGE HAS GONE OFF CENTER

THE AREA WHERE I CAN PRESS AND MAKE A SELECTION

HAS BEEN TAKEN OVER BY ADVERTISEMENT. I HAVE NOTIFIED

POETRY SOUP ABOUT IT A FEW TIMES, LASTLY I HAVE HAD NO

RESPONSE ON THIS. IT HASN'T BEEN RECTIFIED. SO WHEN THE

DUE DATE ARRIVES (july 25) I WILL ONLY BE ABLE TO POST 5 WINNERS.

PLEASE ACCEPT MY APOLOGY ON THIS ONE, I WOULD HAVE PICKED

TEN WINNERS BUT IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO DO SO, BECAUSE OF THE

ADVERTISMENT. I DIDN'T WANT YOU ALL TO THINK I ONLY CHOSE FIVE

ON PURPOSE.

THIS WILL BE MY LAST CONTEST HERE AT POETRY SOUP.  I DON'T

WANT TO WASTE MY TIME ON ANYMORE OF THEM IF I CAN'T JUDGE

THEM PROPERLY.

THANK YOU FOR JOINING IT, IF YOUR ONE OF THE LUCKY 5

THAN THAT'S GREAT, BUT I WOULD HAVE LOVED TO CHOOSE

THE REMAINING 5 ALOTED TO ME.  THERE ARE MANY GREAT

ENTRIES AND I CANNOT PICK THEM, QUET FRUSTRATING.

HAVE A GREAT DAY FELLOW POETS.

YOUR MYSTIC ROSE

vie, i understand your frustration... i think you need not finalize the contest on the date specified.. maybe writing admin till it gives you the proper directive (again and again) might help.... if you wish to post 10 winners, you still have options.. just my 2 cents worth.. huggs

I tried, all they did is write again to go to all poems well that doesn't work either, what other options do I have, unless I just post the winners on the blog section that might be an idea. I may just do that, pick 5 to finalize and pick 5 more and post them on blog, it might be my only option, After this contest, I will do no more.

Mystic Rose, is there a slide bar at the very bottom that you can slide the page back and forth... If you do try it by moving the bar. and it might give you the rest of what you're looking for.. I experienced the same in my last contest.. good luck... but if you don't we all most understand. Hugs

No there isn't Eve,I tried everything. I think my page may have crashed, nothing we can do. It's sad.
Date: 7/14/2017 10:24:00 AM
That's too bad my friend. The site seems to have a lot of hang ups like that. Have you tried reducing you screen size or font size...I think that is what it is called, ctr-. I had a similar problem with ads overlapping text but found that because I had the fonts on my screen enlarged to make it easier for me to see, it messed up the way the ads were placed. Just a thought though I would think the admin here would do something to try to help you and not just ignore you. These are many things frustrating about this site...many are leaving because of things they can't deal with anymore. It is sad that this will be your last contest.

I don't think that is the problem Chris, I figure my page must have crashed, will have to judge it as it is, I just feel bad for all the writers who worked so hard at it, that's all. Thanks

I'm so sorry this is happening to you. Administration should have gotten back to you after your initial notification of the problem. Maybe they'll read this blog and take action before the 25th. I don't blame you for being frustrated and not wanting to host another contest. I'm sure everyone will understand it's not your fault, and thanks for the explanation, Vie.
