There is a duplicate page dealing with the same content under the title E-poetry which is the more frequently used term. Sarah the poet 13:46, 24 October 2005 (UTC)

"E-poetry", like "Electronic literature", is largely a USAmerican term, whereas "Digital Poetry" is a term used more internationally. So the categories should not be merged. (—Preceding unsigned comment added by Pointeractive (talkcontribs) )

Digital poetry can take advantage of programmable features such as using Flash or other types of multimedia software, essentially making it more of an art form. E-Poetry can also be an appropriate term, but can get confused with poetry that is simply online, like an e-book. --Csoneji 21:00, 23 June 2006 (UTC)

Is e-poetry really more frequently used? It sounds rather 1980s. It's hard to choose a single term for these things because so many are being used. --Lijil 13:13, 2 September 2006 (UTC)

II would STRONGLY SUGGEST MERGING ALL THIS WITH DIGITAL POETRY. Excuse the yelling font, but there is an urgent need to centralize the discussions and entries regarding this artform.

Hi, I suggest to organize this page by categorizing digital poets in countries, to avoid a simple chaotic list of links. What do you think about? :-)

Some-body merged e- into dp, with-out really giving possible opposition a chance. Now I cannot find what the content of ep was. Kdammers (talk) 14:27, 14 September 2009 (UTC)

Yes you can, look at the history of the redirect at e-poetry.

I have already merged Hypertext poetry here. I suggest that Net-poetry should probably also be merged, but that page makes a very poor job of explaining what "net-poetry" actually is. Fences&Windows 19:31, 18 May 2010 (UTC)

I agree entirely.....see above. But the merging of Net-poetry and Digital Poetry is urgently needed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:34, 1 August 2010 (UTC)

Squeezing Net-poetry under Digital Poetry would have been misleading. It existed like Mail Art as an analog form of art before digitalization, and still exists independently. --fluss (talk) 07:27, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
