    Hello friends,

    It's me Toko here to bring you our second UWIR carnival game. With this challenge I hope to see the creativity of our readers.

    Now what is the game?

    Well it's simple, you need to write the best short poem about the community. Preferably a Haiku, but we welcome every kind of short poem.

    5fb68698c30a2df51fb51cfc_haiku form.jpg

    The official Haiku "rules" state to have 5-7-5 syllables in the respectable first, second and third line.... But eh, ain't no body got time for counting that! I prefer them shorter to be honest. (I know, TWSS)

    Here's some examples from myself:

    Something smells
    Stench fills the air
    RP hunters.

    Title present
    No text in body
    Newbie post.

    Cupcakes comment
    Words in a string
    No sense!

    OnePlus Merger
    The Os's join Force
    Negative for all?​

    As you see they don't need to rhyme, but community inspiration is a big plus. You can evolve general forum things, or users in perticular, all up to you.

    Even @McJader felt like making an example for us:

    Erich is good
    He is such a genius
    Wow I should stop​

    The 5 Haiku's that fit the challenge the best (by jury of our editorial team) win the most UWIR coins.... And trust me, you want to have a lot of these. But rest assured. Everyone participating will get something ;)

    What can you win?

    UWIR coins of course and just like RP, you can exchange UWIR coins some SWAG.
    • The Top 5 users who have the most creative/ original entries get:
    1st 300 Coins
    2nd 250 Coins
    3rd 200 Coins
    4th 150 Coins
    5th 100 Coins​
    • All users who participate and make valid entries get 50 UWIR coins. So no loss in trying ;)

    Rules, yes there are some…

    • The game will run until Saturday, 15th January, 16:00 IST/ 05:30 EST / 18:30 HKT / 10:30 GMT.
    • While we don't look at specific poetry rules, you'll only qualify with at least 3 (short) sentences written.
    • No plagiarism will be accepted, further we'll probably report it to the authorities.
    • Profanities have their time and place, this is not it.
    That's it for the announcement, let your creative cogs turn and write us some poetry!

    It's handsome Ryan?
    Or our wordsmith Cheetosdust?
    No, it's dsm :p


    of course @camohan already had this one covered, though how many syllables are in dee-es-mon-tei-ro? (legitimate question, because he may feature in more than one :rolleyes:)

    to be honest I struggle a lot with countining syllables in English, because they follow a very different logic to what I'm used to in Dutch :(

    For this game we are not concerning ourselves with counting syllables, hence "haiku-esque"
    Needs to be ~ 3 lines and those lines should be short
