I was looking through the introductions and notice alot of people joining and no longer avid posters to the site. This is a cool place, just slow at times, just wondering why everyone is joining and falling off the map?

lots just join with the intention of blitzing the site with their works of greatness before pissing off, when they see they actually have to give feedback, they're not sure how to deal with it and leave for the wowing sites

compared to all the big sites out there, we're still young and growing Wink

Ah, could be. This is one of only a few poetry forums I found suitable to use. I figured people would stick around longer.

That sums up a great deal. But it isnt that hard to give feedback on something else.

one would think so wouldn't one, yet most who post post their own poems first. we just had a couple of new guys who broke the mould and posted a fair bit of feedback first,

I posted nothing but feedback at first until Tektak questioned whether I wrote poetry at all.

That seems a good way to become a better poet.
as has been said many times, giving feedback really does help the writing process for many would be poets.
