    Default Iron Poet V

    Welcome to Iron Poet, round five.
    Rules

    1) Only the first 16 respondants expressing a desire to compete will be the contestants. It IS a first come, first served basis.

    2) The contest will consist of a number of rounds pitting 2 randomly determined authors against each other until only one contestant remains (winner).

    3) Each matchup will be given a theme, picture, article, subject, or other criteria to write on, and the poem submitted must match this as much as possible. Stricter following of prompts may help you win.

    4) The winner as determined by a panel of judges will advance to the next round.

    5) In case of a judge or judges not posting judgments in a timely manner, I will adjudicate and determine the winner.

    6) The poems will be limited to 1000 words with a 50 word minimum

    7) The entries will be poems. All forms of poetry are acceptable, as long as they meet the required word lengths. If your chosen style is too short, you are free to make two of them, i.e., you may make a limerick with 48 words, then add another limerick, still following the same theme, to reach the required word length.

    8) All posted deadlines will given in as much time zones as possible, as labeled.

    9) No late entries will be accepted. If you don't post or fail to post by the deadline, you will be disqualified. A 5 minute grace period is allowed. You have one freebie per contest, use it wisely. This allows you to be up to half a day late with your poem (no more).

    10) If your entry does not include the article(s) and the picture(s), you will most likely lose because of it, however this will not disqualify your poem, as poems are judged on best use of the prompts.

    11) The judgments are final. What the judges decide is how it is.

    12) The entries will only include content suitable for the Playground.

    13) I will rule on anything I have forgotten or needs clarification which is brought to my attention

    14) The contestants will have 1 week (roughly) from the bracket posting to get their entries posted.

    “As I helped him up, I felt him shake all over,
    so I asked him to forgive me, without knowing what for,
    but that was my lot, asking forgiveness, I even asked forgiveness
    of myself for being what I was, what it was my nature to be.”

    I'll participate, not sure what yet. But I think truemane's IA rules are most excellent and I would sure like to see some of them integrated into the IP rules.

    I want to be involved. But as always, I worry about the judging. So I'll tentatively declare as a writer, but I'll probably change my mind if there arne't enough judges.

    Then again, if IP III is any indication, I won't make it past the first round anyway. And I can jude after that.

    You're awfully confident, Brick. Are you sure you don't have any competitors you consider your equal?

    Asking if Brickwall is confident is like asking if Tiggers are bouncy,
    Or if Cat-Muffins like Pringles.

    Are Tiggers bouncy?

    Well, the wonderful thing about Tiggers is Tiggers are wonderful things.

    But yes. Their tops are made out of rubber, and their bottoms are made out of springs, after all.

    In addition to being bouncy, Tiggers are also trouncy, flouncy, and pouncy. And that's as far as my memory goes into my childhood...

    edit: more importantly, do cat-muffins like Pringles?
