Hey redfae and wolfwriter this thread is over two years old. I did read a few poems by you both, but I find I don't quite have the time to invest in a full critique. The first post in this thread explained my process.

Sorry, I find myself coming on here less and less. Vlad I took a look at your poem and left a lengthy critique. D_L_ I critiqued one of yours too. I am still going to keep checking here for as long as Webook is here. It might take me awhile longer than I originally intended, as I said I like to read a poem multiple times before I critique it and since I only pop in here sporadically every few days, weeks, months it will take quite a bit longer. But it will happen eventually, so that even when you are gone my critique will pop up.

I would extremely appreciate any critiques on them so i can get better, wither they be 'harsh' or not.

I want you to review my work "Innocence" it's in soundtrack of the mind.
equivalent trade makes me want to scope one of your works if you'd kindly recommend one to me.

LIZNET sorry it took so long to review "SOLDIER." I hope my comments were helpful.

and if you didn't notice I am not the person to ask if you want a quick blurb about your poem. I do an in depth critique/review and I have been reading your poems for the past month. Did you notice your count meters going up? I guess not and I guess I am done trying to at least be accomadating of your request.

Respond to what? Your unreasonable request to read all of your poems and critique them. I did critique one of your poems and I see that the entire project has been removed. I have been nothing but cordial and you have done nothing but be unreasonable. You have not given me any specific poems to review and you have at least 8-10 reviews on each of your poems. This thread was meant for poets new to webook to get a critique/review of thier work without flooding the forum with requests. You have managed to ruin this thread with your requests and attitude.

I am doing well Poetlife, thank you for asking. Reading and critiquing all of your poems is a large task as you have many poems in a lot of projects. I will do my best though. I do like to read through the poem more than once and I am very busy now so the first review will probably be up in about two weeks.
It would be a great start if you had one poem in particular that you are proud of and view as your best. My goal with this post was to help the new poets that come in and want some feedback on thier poems. There were a couple of "feedback please"
posts here and I just wanted poets to know that I will review your work and to please post requests in this thread so that we don't clutter up the poetry forum with requests.
I have no doubt that you can read and write and I am familiar with your work. So I will just pick a few of my favorites to start with and hope to finish in a satisfactory timeframe.

Hope you are well?
May be all of mine?
How is that for a start?Eh?
Some here think I can't/read or write?

You are a good man. I suggest that you take a look at http://www.poetsgraves.co.uk/forum/ as a site that might interest you and anyone serious about their poetry.

You can still review things in any project . In AshleyUK's old thread people would just post a link to their project. I still pop in here once or twice a month and I hate to see lonely "Read my Poetry, Please" threads. I figure if the one or two poets that come on here looking for a critique will feel better if they can ask somebody directly.
Posted: 8/17/2010 4:54 AM PDT
Don't you need to start a project for them to place their poems in for you to review them?
I am really glad to see you here AB. So many of us have stopped coming here much. Your thoughts about PagetoFame mirror mine but I do miss the old crowd and Webook as it was, despite the problems with the vote.

The purpose of the poetry forum is not for review requests. Many an argument started over this fact in the heyday of this forum. There was a person(s) here who took it upon themselves to review poetry and take requests .Since that person(s) no longer frequents these boards I will try to take up the mantle because I need something to do.
A couple of things about me, I am from the old school of WeBook. PagetoFame is not a concern of mine and I am not registered to critique there(I will if you really,really want me too.) I believe that WeBook is a perfect place poets to create a community that encourages and supports each other. Sort of like an online coffee shop or poet group. I believe we can all grow together.
I don't consider myself a harsh critic but I do like to be in depth. I don't believe in "feel good" critiques. My goal is not to leave one liners that don't comment on the content of the poem(unless that poem is really good.) If you don't like my critique and disagree with my analysis of your poem please don't try to explain to me what I missed because I don't care. That is not meant to be harsh or rude. If you ask for a critique you must be willing to accept criticism and the idea that your poems weren't understood because of bad metaphors or insuffecient theme. Of course I am always willing to discuss your poetry but discussions are not one sided. Meaning that there should be dialogue.
If you would like me to review your poetry just post a message and leave a link to your project. I read a poem many times before I critique so if you see your counter going up that's me.
