About Readers Choice.
After 4th Feb,we will start with the Readers Choice.
Here each member is allowed to mail his top 3 entries on the basis of his priorities.The member is not expected to mail his entry number .While doing this , members are supposed to write their entry number on subject along with text as "Readers choice"
eg. 4 Readers choice .
where 4 is the members own entry number. If the person posts his entry as his choice,then his vote will be considered invalid.The top will be given 10 marks,the 2nd will be given 9 marks and the 3rd choice of the member will be given 8 marks.
Like this the score for all poems will be calculated and the one with maximum score will be the winner of the "Readers Choice". Guess this is simple.
Entries are been received from the following members.The list is arranged as per their entry number.
Remember that 4th February is the last date for sending entries.Please post your entries as soon as possible to firstname.lastname@example.org.
