    "No poems or stories, please. Also avoid topics on war, guns and violence. Post a general and compact entry."------How much boring can it be? Ideal way of killing creativity of the villagers!

    Partha K,

    The use of guns has increased all over the world, violence also increased manifold and we are getting depressing news of violence from all around us almost daily. I don't think anybody supports war. Moreover, a new beginning happens after the destruction only as no creativity can take place amidst gunfire in war-torn areas. At least, here we can avoid such topics in this contest.

    Do you find it too boring? Lots of things are happening all around us which can drive you to post something interesting. Isn't it?

    Many members might be interested in writing a piece of poem or story or some matter related to current affairs or history of the world.
    What I feel is we can have a separate contest where freehand writing can be permitted so that members can write on a varied topics and subjects of socio-political importance or economics or sociological aspects related to various activities and thought processes going on in this world.
    Let the present contest continue in its mentioned form which is a very specific one and is being undertaken in many websites where creative writing on a particular topics are invited with restrictions not allowing to venture in all the areas.
    SV management team can ponder on this and maybe we can have a freehand writing opportunity through another contest.
    We are already posting our posts on a variety of subjects in the forum section here. Maybe one of them could be adjudged as the best post of the month awarding a nominal cc. It is also true that more number of awards can only be given once the site starts earning on its own.
    Would not the above measures attract more traffic to this site? What the members feel about this?
