Yes you gave it your best, and no I am not laughing at all.your accent says maybe you have seen first hand other fields not Flanders but some with no name. And your English was better than some who think they do very well, so no one should ever laugh at your recital,

Correct. For the written contest and the facebook contest, it need not have any connection to In Flanders Fields.

For the recitation contest, it does.

Hi everyone! This event is a very cool tribute to those that fell in WWI, and a very neat idea as far as the CC-themed poetry.

Please go to the facebook link and read my poem. If you enjoy any part of it, just hit the 'like' button. I know you can all identify with the thoughts that I have put into my poem, so let me know if you like it.

Thanks to the team for another great opportunity to get more involved.
Happy Hunting.

52 minutes left if you want to take a crack at it.

I can't believe there have only been two entries. Are there really so few people with microphones on their computer that they can't take a crack at a simple poetry recital? Unless somebody steps up in the next 52 49 minutes, I won't even be able to give away 3rd prize.

So it's just me and Dakky? Really? HA! Congrats dakky, we've won! :D

I would've been interested to hear some "canadian pride" put into the recital. Maybe if you'd extend the deadline and give a mass PM...who knows? Put a small note there that the only two participants reciting a great canadian poem are a romanian and a croatian...maybe it'll work...:)))

PS: did my bid and put a link to this post to some guys from Canada that I'm currently "sparring" with...:D

Actually, people are shy. If I didn't drank a gallon of wine before I got home, you wouldn't have my recital as well ;) I bet at least 75% of the users have microphones, but no one wants to be heard or for others to know how their voice sounds. It's a part of being anonymous, that's why people are hiding behind nicknames.

Anyway, I don't need the credits (use them for another event), but can't wait for the GA as that medal will move me to the 2nd place in GA achievements overall on site (tied with 33 medals with Gilligan & Betiko) =D> ... and I still didn't received a GA for the last Official Mafia game won... :) so only 3 short to Swifte with 37 GA's :)

Well dak if you get 2nd and 3 It will be a bonus for you, btw not everyone hides behind nicknames I use a form of my real name and have the courage to stand by what I say because of it, my opinions are my own and if someone shows me I am wrong I admit it, the hiding behind nicknames and or usernames seems to allow others to say some stupid crap, that normally they wouldn't dare utter, maybe that in itself is a freedom For them.

The OP mentioned to film yourself and post the video, so I think most people didn't want to show their faces :P Might have got more had you said to just do an audio recording.

Well, they could have just done a simple graphic with a voiceover, but I guess you're right.

I just figured most of these kids nowadays know a lot more about techie stuff than I do, so I figured there was no sense trying to specify how to do it, and that most of them would figure out their method.

LIVE RECITAL
A couple of really excellent entries, made more impressive by the fact that neither was by a person who speaks English as their first language. It is close, but in a photo finish, I'm giving first place to dakky21 based on the excellent use of graphics in addition to the voiceover.
