I would like to ask Rui to turn on the voting for Poems and Stories.
I think we should keep this functionality permanently switched on so anyone visiting can vote at any time. This would be fairer to people I think.
Any thoughts?

Yes probably fairer as when voting is done on block at the end - folks only seem to remember the poems they saw last. I tend to keep track of my favourites - but that's me - I'm like a little squirrel when it comes to poems! As long as those keeping track of the votes can cope!

Rui, I know both Mac and I have had a few emails saying yes so judging by the emails and comments here I think we should go for it now. Thanks all.

Sorry for the lack of action on this one Rui. My concern is, if we keep the current count, would it be possible that some poems will be kept at the top and "possibly" be voted into the new book this year? I suppose if it does we just ensure that no poem published in the Voices book enters the next book.
What say you chaps and chapesses?

Keep the count... but no poems from voices in the new book ( We just ignore the poems in voices in the top scores list )

That sounds feasible. We have a wealth of other great and worthy poems on the site. One concern I have is we must encourage folk to not only look and consider recently posted poems but to delve back a bit too. It will be a good cross section then, what do others think?

The bigger the value, the more votes you're giving to a poem or story. You can pick from 1 to 10 so you can vote more for the ones you like more.
