It isn't our responsibility to baby people, if they don't read the theme they don't get credit. Easy as that. Also we don't want to close the old threads unless they truly are dead per the 14 day rule. Poets need their feedback and a competition entry is no exception.
We moved to the title including the theme and date of the contest entry (I.E. "Journey's End - September 2007) to help reduce confusion as to what entries are what...but again we aren't babying people, they will follow the rules or not be considered.
