Members' Posting Pool Welcome to ChicagoPoetry.com Version Three . . .Click on me to learn about this new website.

Tip: Once you are logged in, go to "Your Account," click on "Edit Your Homepage," enable your "Personal Menu Block," type whatever you want to in the box--it will appear when you log into the site at the upper left. Edit this personal area any time you like to include links or reminders. For more tips .click on me.

Wow. Cool. A new website! What's new?

Sign up for a membership. Log in. Do yourself a favor and check the box that says "Remember Me". That way you don't have to always be typing in your password. Once you've signed up you will be put on our famous email list and you will receive important poetry information. If you had a previous account with our old site, your new account will take the place of the old account.

Are you logged in? Go to the homepage. Now you can click on that Network List button in the Interactive zone on the homepage, a button that you can't otherwise see if you are not logged in. In there you can find out who else is registered, who else is logged in. You can send others personal messages that will be diplayed for them when they log in. You can click on links to everyone else's personal pages. It's a lot of fun. But you have to be logged in to do this. Don't be shy. It's completely safe. It's only poetry.

Click on the Poetry button at the left. You know, the one that has a snowman for the winter. If you want to add a few sentences of bio. information to your poetry page page, it will be displayed in the box when people look at the list. Also, I will activate your comment section in your poetry page so that you can post poetry any time you like. If someone posts a comment in your poetry page that you want deleted, just let me know. Don't have a poetry page? Well, take a chance and send me some poetry. You can do this by going to the homepage, clicking on the "Submit Materials" link. I'm pretty picky about what I publish, so send me your best stuff. If I think your work will fit in well with ChicagoPoetry.com, I will give you your own page. Let me know who you are, though. I won't publish anything from anonymous sources.

Go back to the homepage. Check out the "Fortune Cookie" at the right. Every day the fortune cookie changes. Ma'dam Poesia is a well known psychic. I'm sure you've heard of her. She predicted that Poetry Magazine would get a hundred million dollars back when she was a teenager in the 1930s. She was kind enough to offer her services to ChicagoPoetry.com.

Back to the "Interactive" zone. After you are logged in, if you want to change information about your account here, just click on "Your Account." If you want to submit important poetry information to be added to our Letters section or to be considered for another section of the site, just click on Submit Materials. If you have a question, click on Ask FAQ. If you want to log out, click on log out, but there is no reason to log out, you're experience here will be much more fulfilling if you are always logged in. Don't sweat it. Your information will never be sold to anyone. We have the most advanced fire walls and security here that can be utilized. Your privacy is guaranteed. So log in and stay logged in and log in every time you come here. You will know you are logged in when your username appears at the right where it says "Poets in Here."

Notice also that our new site contains more LINKS, links to everything, in every article, on every page, links links links. Yeah!

Vote in our new poll at the lower right.

We are now using a new server. We thank Dean Shavit for the last two years of his service, but we now have a new internet provider. Explore. Let me know what you think.

And come to the ChicagoPoetry.com Version Three Party at The Cafe, 5115 N. Lincoln, Tuesday, January 18, 8 PM. I will be giving you a sneak peek of my poetry band, The Ruthless Poetry Mob, so throw a few bucks in the hat so I can pay my guitarist and bassist. Come out and cheer for them like they're the rebirth of the Beatles or some shit. It'll be a blast.

--C. J. Laity
