Believe it or not, #MMPoetry 2014 is right around the corner!
The polling plug-in that I’ve used for voting the last two years suffered from some severe limitations, so I am looking into switching to a new service. But before I do, I need to test it, so I thought we could all have some fun in the process.
Please take one minute to 1) vote in the poll below, and 2) SHARE THIS POLL on your social network or blog so that I can test scalability. (Remember those “too many processes” error messages from the last two years? I think this new service might alleviate that problem, but I’m not sure.) After you vote, PLEASE use the buttons that appear below the results to share it on Facebook and Twitter.
The results of the poll are all in good fun, so I hope no one (especially the poets listed) takes it too seriously. But who knows — maybe a little bait can land another big fish for this year’s tournament.
Now here’s the poll (it also appears on the right sidebar of my redesigned home page, so excuse the narrow format):
POLL CLOSED. HERE ARE THE RESULTS (I deleted the polling plug-in used for this, so I just pasted in the results):
