Where do we post, here on this thread, or on the main submission page?

Instead of trying to undo the biting of the old apple/I bite a new one instead/And with a toothless grin/Become a Dionysian among Christians.

on the thread, here ... 🙂

As Luigi points out below, this advice was wrong. Belated apologies.

Wrong.

"Anyone can invite others to write poems in any way the setter chooses (theme, form, etc.) Responses to the challenge are posted as submissions on a date set by the challenger. Go ahead and try setting a challenge or writing a poem which meets the  conditions set."

close the topic please, nobody will participate, my challenge was a failure, even I failed to write a complete haibun within the deadline.

I look forward to other people's challenges and hopefully there will be soon.

Please don't be hurt by my refusal to participate in your challenge, iyp.  I was dismayed by what seemed like all the falling back to original rules which I never liked, personally.

You didn't fail. The site has been like a ship with no rudder in recent weeks, it seems to me.  It's not clear who the captain is anymore, and I think people are becoming uncomfortable and estranged because of that. But there are new members who might enjoy taking a shot at this.  I'm glad you were brave enough to try reviving interest in this particular thread.  Take heart!

even I failed. because of the great prose section which was very difficult to be good enough for the haiku I wrote.

it is very embarrassing when yourself fails in front of others with something as specific and seemingly an easy task as his own choice... so hopefully I won't fail again when I write a poem for another person's challenge. (but I will have an excuse this time, it was not my choice.)

*hangs head in inexcusable shame*

the site is in my opinion okay, other things have changed, the whole internet is like an episode of the twillight zone.

It's true, I think, that the challenge you set was a difficult stretch for anyone. That's probably one reason no-one responded.  I know what it must feel like when you 'fail' at your own challenge! Yes, pretty embarrassing, but what the heck. Don't feel so ashamed. You haven't committed a crime, major or minor!

The current savvi challenge is turning out to be a hard one too. There's no way I can write something to fit the bill at this point. I'm what you would call a very sloooow worker with blood, sweat and tears ( called constant rewrites/revision) thrown into the mix! 🙂 🙂
