Question[edit]

Why is the selected poem section down on the lower right? shouldn't an actual poem be highlighted, fully expanded in the upper left section where "Selected Article" appears??? 07:39, 3 April 2011 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ericmachmer (talkcontribs)

because, like so many portals here, this one has been essentially abandoned. it could not possibly qualify now as a featured portal. its so sad that this great idea is so poorly executed, and is the face of WP for so many curious readers. Yes, we could put a featured poem front and center. ive rearranged sections on the portals i watch over many times. its really up to us.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 02:47, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

New content[edit]

I have removed start/c class, and low/mid importance content, replacing it with FA/GA/B and Top/High content. this was a featured portal a long time ago, and without updating its no longer. except i should be able to make it good again. I plan to add DYK, and recognized content sections, and many more articles/bios/images. i may try to add some actual poems. thats a LOT of work to format.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 02:30, 20 September 2014 (UTC)
