Good evening to you Gypsy, you could place some brief comments right under the poem (s) , it has been done frequently before, although it probably needs to be considerably shorter than the poem itself.

    I think a rule of thumb is that if anyone leaves a critique, then they leave a vote also. We are hoping to have the two areas tied up so that if anyone wants to vote they can only do so if they have left a critique to justify the score they give.
    Eg. I hated this poem. It was not something I enjoyed. I give you a one. Then they go post a 1 in the vote box. That way we can see what they thought and why they gave the one. The next ctritique may then be
    'I loved it' and I gave you a ten. So the balance of critiques and the balance of votes will be equal, fair and not done out of childish pranks etc.
    It would also stop people voting for themselves.

    Hugs
