    Poetry Contest 2017 - Discussions (OP)




    We had a writing contest at the beginning of this year and we had announced that there will be a poetry contest sometime later. But due to lack of activity on the forum, we kept postponing it.

    If there is enough interest, we can go ahead and host a contest now. So are you interested in participating?

    Vote above on the poll or simply post a reply below.

    Update:

    The contest has already started a few days ago. Keep sending your entries by PM to me. Here are a few guidelines copied from a previous contest, with a few additions/updates:

    So here's the deal...

    1) PM you poem to me
    2) You have until the 15th20th of November 2017 (extended until 20th of November)
    3) You can write about anything at all Insha'Allah, as long as there is nothing anti-Islamic
    4) please do not share your entry with anybody (that should go without saying)
    5) there is no need to advertise the fact that you are entering insha'Allah
    6) No encouraging friends to vote for you insha'Allah
    7) You shall be disqualified () if you plagiarise. It must be your own work. No copying and no translating existing poems from other languages
    8) The most important thing is other members not knowing which poem is yours...

    Other than that, get PM'ing me insha'Allah

    There is a poll at the top of the thread. It is not visible on the mobile app, you will have to use a browser to vote.

    Is this thread not noticeable enough or are people simply not interested in poems and don't want to vote? If it is the latter, then we shouldn't continue with such contests anymore.

    Is there really a point? I visit the forum from my phone and even I can see the contest banner at the top of the page so I’m sure others can too. Members just aren’t very interested. I personally think you should just announce a winner

    Re: Poetry Contest 2017 - Discussions

    Only two poems have more than 1 vote. One of them was also voted by the author as well, so there is actually a tie between them.

    Some of the members are only using our mobile app and they cannot vote. Instead, they have clicked 'like' on the poems. If we consider those likes, then there are 3 poems which have similar number of votes+likes.

    We do need a few more votes to determine the winner.

    Re: Poetry Contest 2017 - Discussions

    I think it´s ok to extend voting time. As I remember, when we had writing contest at the last time, there too came more votes after extension of voting time. We can wait few more days.

    But now hurry up members and vote!

    (No cookies if you don´t vote.)

    Ma'sha'Allah, the entries this year were so good!

    Come on, people, we need to cultivate literature and the arts, like poetry and writing and painting! I would have definitely submitted an entry, but I've come here after quite a long time...

    Asalamualykum,

    Sorry i have just bumped into this thread.

    Alhamdulilah very good creative poems.

    I have 2 favourites but only 1 vote.

    Jazaka Allah for sharing. I like how everyone got to choose their own topics. Job well done.
