2007-05-20 [.~*~RaUnChY DIVA SES~*~.]: I've done my poem but I want someone to read it for me before I enter. Is there anyone who I can send it too?

2008-03-23 [Willow Rose]: I would like my poem "Weeping Willow", removed from the wiki page "Regular Poems Contest Submissions Page2". I'm not going to be on Elfpack anymore, and I don't want my poetry places I'm not - people have been using them without permission or crediting, and I don't want any of them where people can take them now.
2008-03-24 [Hedda]: [Willow Rose]: By submitting it here, you accepted it to be displayed here. Being all filled with yourself and saying that you've changed your mind is simply not the thing to do.
And why are you so afraid that people copy your poem? If people do copy them, then you need Elfpack as a proof that it was you who wrote it first. If you remove it from here, the ones who have already copied it and claimed it as their own, will seem to be right and you'll be seen as a poem thief.
2008-03-24 [Willow Rose]: So even though it's my poem I no longer have the right to have it removed?
2008-03-24 [Hedda]: No. It's "submitted", not "loaned" to Elfpack and the contest.
What you are trying to do is like having the letters you sent back.
2008-03-24 [Hedda]: It's not like you've lost the copyright to it, but you have agreed to let it be displayed in the contest.
2008-03-24 [Willow Rose]: I know I agreed to it being displayed, but I no longer am.
2008-03-24 [Hedda]: It's not that we want to mess with you, but taking a submission down means that the contest will make no sense for people who look at it afterwards.
So you can stuff your claims where the sun never shines - like in the hands of a lawyer and see if they can get your vain claim over the Atlantic.
I'll not let our contests be ruined by people that just want to destroy for no sane reason at all.
2008-03-24 [Faith.Hope.Love]: The poem "Weeping Willow" is already locked in the poll: Regular Poems Voting, too. :P
2008-03-24 [GlassCasket]: hmmm so since it is in the actual poll there is not really anything we can do about it is there?
2008-03-24 [Hedda]: The point is that we don't want to do anything. Of course we could just delete all old contests too, but that would be pretty sad, wouldn't it?
2008-03-25 [Shatureel]: Sad indeed! [Willow Rose], [Hedda] has said everything that I would have said to you. I am sorry that you will not be on much, but you know I have always told you, that your work is good and its good that others will get the chance to read it. If you had come to me before the contest was ended and the voting poll put up, I would have removed it. But now its to late, it is done and over with. You are asking for the removal of a poem that has already been read by countless of ppl, and copied by who knows how many others. Its kind of to late to hide back between the darkness of the pages of your poem book. Sweety you are a good poet and you do others the honor of allowing them to read and use your poems. They can never take what is truly yours away, cause we all know it belongs to you. I really am sorry that I have not been here sooner to help you with this matter.
