You must have a Critiquer Rating of at least 5 to have Voting Power above 0. If your Voting Power is at least 4 you will be eligible for the Critiquer Prizes at month end. This list is sorted two different ways. For those Eligible for Prizes, the list is sorted by Critiquer Rating, then Voting Power. For those NOT Eligible for Prizes, the list is sorted by Voting Power, then Critiquer Rating. You gain the most Critiquer Rating by giving Very Careful and accurate Critiques. You gain the most Voting Power by picking the poems at the TOP of the Critiquing list.

It may help to think of yourself as a flower. Your Nectar (Critiquer Rating) is of course the most valuable thing that you have. If you rush to Bloom too Quickly by raising your Voting Power above 4 (so that you are eligible for prizes), you will likely sacrifice the Quality of your nectar in the process! You will have focused on Quantity instead of Quality of your Critiques. The best flowers are those that finally bloom with the Best Nectar! A flower that blooms with Sour Nectar will NOT attract Butterflies (Prizes). Who cares if it takes you nearly the entire month to bloom? That you finally DO bloom is what matters.

Sorry, no critiquers meet the requirements for June 2017 at this time!
