4. Entries must be no longer than 60 lines. These 60 lines do not include the title or spacing between paragraphs. See supplemental rules posted about the artwork and what constitutes a word.
5. All entries must be addressed to POEMS on the "TO:" line of your n-mail. If an entry is sent to anywhere or to anyone other than "POEMS", the entry is disqualified (It is your fault for not sending your entry to correct address).
6. Your poem MUST NOT appear on any Nexus board (community, clan, subpath, etc.) prior to the announcement of winners for that week. If it does, your entry will be disqualified. You are welcome to post your poems only after the winners have been announced.

The contest entry should only include the poem content and signed with the EXACT name of the author/character at the bottom.
12. Only ONE entry per person. (This is not per character but per person. If you have four characters you may NOT send in an entry for each of them. You are limited to one entry for all of your characters in all your accounts)
