I noticed that someone referred to a crit they'd made at another poetry crit site. I understand why - it was a quick visit and made sense at the time.
However, if you have critted a poem - say at X site - which subsequently appears on MM, the only way to help the rest of us (who may not belong to X site - as I don’t in this case) is to re-post your crit here, please.
All poetry sites want to help their members as best as they can and to see a reference to a crit elsewhere doesn't enlighten most MM members. Also, of course, there is an etiquette about posting which helps us all.
I'm not suggesting that we shouldn't mention other crit sites - I often do. Many of us - me included - belong to other sites, too. That is not unhealthy - cross-fertilization of ideas is good - If I see things which would help MM I start yattering on about them here. For me, MM is easily my main site - the vast majority of what I do is here; for other members they may be 50/50 or they may work mainly elsewhere; no problem.
But when we do offer a crit we do need to let all members of this board see it. Sure, we could put a link in to the crit on the other board but that would be very unethical both to them and MM.
So, please, if you offer a crit, even if you've offered it elsewhere previously, do post it actually on the MM tile in question.
Thank you very much.
