Dear all,

Latest news: the voting has ended!

Please feel free to continue posting Haikus! They won't take part in the contest, but they inspire our creativity Smiley

==

to celebrate the new Frozen-Coin-Thread ( https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=411291.0 ) I'd like to start a poetry contest  Cheesy

The rules:
1. Please write a Haiku which is featuring the word "Frozen" or "Frozen Coin"
2. The language of the Haiku is your free choice! (This means: for non-English Haikus most users need probably translate.google.com, but that's ok. Not required but it would be nice: an English translation)
3. Post your Haiku during the next three weeks. Please include a Frozen-Address for rewards (or donations of fans). Last submission: end of January 2014 (your local time). I will post a "Contest Ended" statement at February 3rd, my local time). I will set up a voting for the best Haiku until February 10th (I may be a bit scarce on time then)
4. Simplified said is a Haiku a poem consisting of 3 lines with usually 17 syllables altogether (usually 5-7-5). For an example look at the end of the post, for the real definition of a Haiku please refer to: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haiku
5. You can post more than one Haiku. Your Haiku with the most votes will partake at the rewards (only one reward per person)

Process:
  • I'll think of some fitting duration for the voting depending on the number of submissions
  • The voting rules will follow with the setup of the voting. The rules will include: no bought votes. Your own poetry.
  • There are some liberties about what counts as a Haiku and what not, but I will rule out obvious "non-Haikus"
  • If there are not enough submissions I'll forfeit the remaining rewards

The minimum rewards (*):
  • 1st place: 200 FZ
  • 2nd place: 120 FZ
  • 3rd place: 75 FZ
  • 4th to 10th: 15 FZ

(*) You can pile up the rewards by sending to the Haiku pot (address at the end of the posting)

The dates (once more):
  • Until end of January 31st: post your Frozen-Haiku
  • Until February 10th: voting starts
  • Somewhen in February (date still open): voting ends

Here an example for a Haiku, quoted from http://www.toyomasu.com/haiku/:
Quote
Without flowing wine
How to enjoy lovely
Cherry blossoms?

Have fun with it and good luck!


=== Haiku Contest Pot: 700 FZ. Address: FJHBp2h8fFb22Cp9dhUrVjFtnXrJV72mzM

Original pot: 500 FZ (trenton81)

Donations: if you like to add to the contest rewards please send your donation to the Haiku pot address above. I'll
take 70% of the sum to pile up the rewards for the first 10 winners and the remaining 30% to make rewards for
further winners.

200 FZ - The Frozen Donation Pool (FKXWGDbUocEB2e8gC7LLUSFwxgA2Sji2ME)

FROZEN is coming! Block reward at ~ 7 FZ and quickly falling! - Enjoy the Frozen Poetry from the Haiku contest

(*) @wanksta11, may be your Haiku needs some fine-tuning for the contest: 1st line 5 syllables: ok, 2nd line 6 syllables: one missing, 3rd line 4 syllables: one missing. :-)

First poster's special donations are done now. For you all: good inspiration and good luck!

perhaps it is best
to provide an example
that has been fine-tuned

(i.e., for the example "Without flowing wine" I count 5-6-3 instead of 5-7-5?)

p2p.0x0a.nl for all your Cryptographic Anomaly, Cypherfunks, FryCoin, GameCredits, Gulden, PenguinCoin, and TittieCoin p2pool nodes! Err.. I mean needs! .. Both.

You got me there Smiley

Sorry for my smartass comment, one extra FZ for wanksta11 for having to bear this Smiley Ok guys, ignore fine-tuning. There's freedom in poetry, and so in this contest.

Best luck!
