Referendum text:

Neopoet Referendum No. 7

Do you agree with the following proposal?
 
We will create a unique workshop called "The Lab" in accordance with the community discussion (https://www.neopoet.com/forum/25082). Submissions to "The Lab" would have special visibility in The Stream and elsewhere. Submissions would be restricted, both by how often a member can post, and on the basis of credits, which are earned by posting quality comments. More detail is available in the community discussion page (linked to previously). 
 
This initative, if ratified, may take several months to implement.

Proposal - The Lab - encouraging critiques/comments

We'd like to thank the community for the wide ranging discussion on our prior proposal. We'd like to submit a new proposal after extensive debate within the AC -- we believe this takes into account much of the feedback that was received.

We are proposing to create a new category of poem called The Lab. Poems in The Lab will still show up in The Stream and elsewhere, however they will be specially marked and visible. Submission to The Lab will be limited in several ways.

The detail of the proposal, and an opportunity for discussing this further, is available in the forum: https://www.neopoet.com/forum/23682

The forum discussion will be open through June 29th.
