Hey Premium Members,

You can now select which poems you want featured on the PoetrySoup home page!!! You can select this option when you post or edit a poem.

If you select more than one poem to be featured, we will randomly select a poem from your featured selections - when it is your turn to be featured.

Thanks to Debbie Guzzi for the idea!

What about the one's whom can't afford to become premium members ? Do or shall they also be granted an opportunity and or option to choose which poem they can have featured if ever ? If so then I would wish to have, "Be Still....", as my selection. Sincerely, with warm regards, John

PM are the only one guaranteed to be featured, so this feature is only for PMs.

It's ok, don't worry ... I think that we already know the answer. : /

Great! It's a great feature-improvement! Thanks, TPS! (... and thanks Deborah for the idea). I have a question for you, TPS ... what's happened with the contests you used to sponsor? The last time "we" talked about it, "you" said that you would choose (randomly?) Soupers to sponsor them (it was Brian's idea and I think that you supported it). I'll be back just in case you answer this question. : )

A big thank you Team Soup!!! And Debbie.....you rock !! Often I've cringed to see an old poem of mine featured, that I wasn't necessarily proud of, but had forgotten about. Some of those early attempts at poetry .......what was I thinkin' ??!!! lol !! That was long before I learned quality....not quantity .... Thanks team!!

in other words I was robbed. lol..... all my old featured poems chosen from your system were so bad. I deleted one of my bad poems, just cuz it was featured.... sometimes I'm to lazy to perfect or correct errors.

I only missed the featured poems once this year- due to family sorrow. I haven't missed many featured poems. I feel as if this is an option that should had been enhanced long ago through the years, I did not approve the poems chosen from my poem list. lol, my old poems are lame.
