Not much activity on this forum ever.

I have a gazillian poems I've written but feel sort of weird about posting them and being like the only poet among all these earthlings.

I don't remember. Do we still have blogging here? That would be an option. Another would be to post them in the same thread instead of making a new one every time. You never know, there might be closet poets here like wall flowers at the high school dance - just waiting for someone else to step out onto the floor first.

I know zero about poetry but Spike Milligan's always put a smile on my face for there sheer ludicrousness

What kind of pencil shall I use?

Oops. I misspoke. I meant journals. There are a few poems there already.

Blogs were removed due to the sheer scale of spam that came through that route.

I've seen some forums that could limit blogs to members who have been around a while.

Any way to do that here?

Not that I know. I could limit them to registered members (but that is what we had) or I could limit them to subscribing members and have it as one of the perks but I do not know of an automatic way of limiting them to, say, members with more than a hundred posts.

Journals are read only posts, blogs are a completely separate area of the Garden.
