Sea Shell Game / Introduction to the Sea Shell Game
« on: October 06, 2011, 09:19:13 PM »
Hello everyone and welcome to the brand new Seashell game!

You are the judges, and it is entirely up to you which poem is declared the winner. There will be no interference from me or anyone else.

There will be two haiku presented at the start of each game. We want to hear the reasons behind your choices, so an explanantion of how a poem works or doesn't work for you is required with your votes.

There are no right or wrong answers, all that matters is your honesty and that you remember to adhere to The Haiku Foundation's code of conduct. It is my hope that by assessing and studying the work of others we can all expand our skills and understanding of haiku.

Sails / Introduction: Sails
« on: February 14, 2011, 09:23:36 PM »
Sails is an ongoing exploration into the nature and possibilities of haiku. Each installment, or Sailing, will begin with a provocation—literally, a calling forth of your voice—usually by way of a question.  Sometimes these explorations will test limits, assumptions, and fixed positions. They may require the use of instruments we are not yet familiar with, and they may, at times, take us to places where we are unsure of our bearings. If this appeals to you, I hope you will heed the call to set sail, even if sometimes it requires you to lash yourself to the mast.

Sails began as regular series on The Haiku Foundation blog. Click this link to see the Sails archive on the blog.

How to Use This Forum / Introduction to The Haiku Foundation Forum
« on: December 01, 2010, 09:24:03 PM »
Welcome to The Haiku Foundation forum, our new venue for discussions about haiku!

Soon after The Haiku Foundation web site went online, our blog editor, Scott Metz, enlisted a number of guest editors. Each of these editors ran a regular series of articles on our blog. The lively discussions that ensued convinced us that discussions about haiku should be a part of what we offer on our site.

We think that our forum will be better able to handle the long, complex discussions that became the norm on our blog. Also, unlike our blog, the forum enables you to start your own discussions, use simple HTML in your topics or replies, and be notified when a new topic is added to a board.

We hope that you will enjoy this forum!

Some of the boards in this forum enable you to start your own discussions. Boards that support this feature will have a New Topic link at upper right (or lower right).



For example, the In-Depth Haiku: Free Discussion Area has the New Topic link at upper right.

If you do not see the New Topic link, then you cannot start your own discussions in that board. You can only reply to topics that have been started by the board moderator.

How to Use This Forum / Using HTML in Your Topics or Replies
« on: November 20, 2010, 10:52:59 PM »
When you add a reply or a new topic, you can use the buttons in the editor to add links and other special formatting. These buttons insert Bulletin Board Codes (BBC), which you might know from other forums.

You can also use the following basic HTML tags to format your text, then paste then into a post:

Code: [Select]
<b>, <u>, <i>, <s>, <em>, <ins>, <del>
<a href="">
<img src="" alt="" />
<br />, <hr />
<pre>, <blockquote>


One approach is to use an HTML editor to create a topic with links and other HTML code, then paste the code into the forum topic. Be sure to copy all of the HTML code, like this:

Code: [Select]

Here is a link to <a href="http://www.thehaikufoundation.org/">The Haiku Foundation</a>.


Remember though: a forum topic supports a small subset of HTML tags only, namely the subset identified in the first code block above.

*

If you don't already know how to use BBC or HTML, don't worry. Just type in your comments without any of these codes. The content is what really matters!
