    I am presuming yes, since I've seen numerous poets (some praised by an admin in comments) submit multiple poems. EDIT: YES, you are. See official rules:
    "
    • An applicant may submit multiple entries throughout the contest period, as long as (1) each entry is an original work that meets all of the submission guidelines, (2) the applicant uses the same email address for each entry. Judges reserve the right to limit prizes to at most one prize per individual applicant.

      I've posted 4 poems but they are no longer visible because this forum only goes back 20 pages, which is only a few days. Are all poems past 20 pages lost or are the moderators able to see past those 20 pages?

        I too posted a poem (just two days ago) that has now disappeared, sunk below the horizon of the of the 20-pages-max-visible. Has anyone in administration replied to this question yet? --whether these poems will still be considered as entries at judging time. Perhaps someone has responded, but it disappeared too, haha!

        On another note, in future years (if this competition is repeated) the administrators might consider limiting entries to 3 or 5 poems each. This way, everyone is presenting their very best work, the cream of their individual crops, as it were. And that would preclude those posting dozens or even (it may turn out) hundreds of poems. Just a thought.

        I would like to second A.M. Moon's suggestion that the number of entries per person be limited. Right now there are people flooding the forum with poems instead of, apparently, selecting their best work and entering it. Three poems would be an acceptable limit IMO. Thoughts from anyone else?

      If I am a minor, am I still allowed to enter from this account or does my mom or dad have to make an account for me to enter?

        Here's a link to the contest rules:
        http://www.rhymezone.com/contest/#rules

        Regarding your question, it says...

        "A parent or legal guardian above the age of 18 may enter on behalf of a child under 18."

          Hello,
          Is there a limit on how many poems one person can submit?

              What happens to submissions after the contest? Will they disappear from cyberspace? If not, will they be accessible to all?

                Understanding

                Understanding is easy you see
                All you have to do is listen to me
                You will see how much fun it can be
                When you are listening to me
                I hope I’m not too demanding
                All I want is a little understanding
                No troubles or worries will be our landing
                As long as we have an understanding.




                Why isn’t anyone Understanding?

                Why isn’t anyone understanding me?
                Is it because my hurt they cannot see.
                I’m down on bended knees
                Somebody help me please
                If no one is understanding
                Then in jail I’ll be landing
                I had to have food to eat
                There was not just me
                I need enough to feed me plus three
                They didn’t ask to be here
                So I’ve got to make a way
                But out of jail I must stay
                What will be the price I must pay?
                I don’t have fame or riches
                I try not to dig ditches
                Because in this life you never know
                Where you may go
                Is anyone understanding me?
                I want to know.




                What I need is Understanding

                Can you hear my plea understanding is what I need?
                I don’t want your money, no
                Put yourself in my place, then plead the case
                It’s not the same look on their faces
                When it’s white cases that’s being judged by racist
                It really does matter if you are black or if you are white
                Black people have always had to fight
                Just to be able to get what was right.
                Some had to steal their freedom through the night
                In the Underground Railroad
                Thanks to those who paved the way
                To allow me to get where I am today.
                Some were beaten,
                Some were attacked by high pressure water hose
                Some were beaten so bad, some had bloody noses
                Some were just out right murdered, some shot, and some hung.
                Some marched for freedom with Dr. Martin Luke King.
                Some people voted for the first African American President
                But he still has white descent,
                His father was African
                His mother was white
                I guess that Makes Barack Obama alright
                The guy has never done nothing to me
                He’s pretty cool from what I can see
                But a lot of people hate him
                Cause he looks like me.

                  I just wanted to say thanks to RhymeZone for sponsoring this contest. I discovered this site a couple of years back when I was writing some satirical light verse, was away from my desk at home (where I have a physical rhyming dictionary), and Googled "rhyming dictionary". I have been using it ever since.

                    Huh? Why would you think that the judges of this contest--who may not even be reading this thread--would be swayed by someone simply thank you to the site for the sponsoring the contest?

                  When you can see through the realms
                  and see through
                  its confusion
                  understanding
                  has set in
                  and you're now
                  a part of the solution
                  When the light
                  shines on dark things
                  and you see them
                  for what they are
                  understanding
                  has set in
                  even though
                  it seemed bazaar
                  When clarity is detected
                  and illusion is now a fact
                  understanding has set in
                  now truth
                  is a part of the act
                  When doorways
                  have been walked through
                  and entrances have become outs
                  understanding
                  has set in
                  and satisfied
                  all our doubts
                  When ideas have been verified
                  and dilemmas deduced
                  understanding
                  has set in
                  while your
                  delusions have been reduced

                    No. Please read the post that started this thread. You need to start a new topic of your own with just this poem.

                      To win, is it required to post our city, state. I'm not entirely comfortable doing so for privacy reasons. Although if required to win, I'll edit my poems and include it. (The repairs required for my truck outweigh my paranoia of my past lol)
