Here is a poll about Poetry Fishbowl links.  If you look on the Serial Poetry page, you will see that the prompter(s) and sponsor(s) for each poem are linked to their Dreamwidth or LiveJournal blog if they have one, or rarely another location. Making these links takes time.  Back when I started the Poetry Fishbowl, the workload was much lighter (and Weebly worked a lot better) so it wasn't an issue.  But now, making those links is about half the time required per entry, and there are a LOT of entries.  If this is a feature you folks are actively using, then it's worth keeping.  But if you don't use it, we'd like to reduce or drop it for the sake of efficiency.  That time would then be available for other tasks, such as continuing to make new pages for threads.  Individual poems will still have links to prompters and sponsors as available. Thoughts?
