    Personally, as a voter in topicals, Im gauging creativity, flow/schemework, narration/literature elements, imagery, and emotion. When I approach a topical as a writer, I usually already have decided how I going at the topic. And based on whatever approach Ive decided on, I try to focus the strengths of my idea. For example, if I was writing to your topic, Id try to put an empasis on making the cgsracter feel tangible or relatable. Id try to make tge reader get inside the characters head.

    As far as the voting? Just do you, bro. With all due respect to @Soule , I think he could have handled that situation better. Outside of obvious trolls, this site cant afford to alienate/exclude voters. I certainly had no issue with your vote in my battle. And encourage you to continue to vote.

    i dont want to point at any one person and say do as they do ..... but ill try to put some things into perspective

    people may not vote categorically, but most verses ARE broken down categorically in peoples heads. I am one who rarely every goes to categories for votes. . but here is what i look for in each verse, and ill try to give a brief example of each

    Use Of Topic - How creative was their concept or story? How good was the execution?

    Flow / Rhyme Scheme- i bundle these together as i feel they go hand in hand. you cant really have one with out the other. i give high marks to verses where each line gracefully flows from one to the next.

    Multis / Internals - I also bunch these together, not only do i want to see each line flowing from one to the other, i look to see if there are multis connecting the lines together, and i give points for good use of internals to pull the mechanics of the multis together.

    Vocabulary / Wording - I dont really care if its a large vocab or simple use of vocab. I just want the language choice to be fitting for the tone and mood of the piece you are delivering. I also like a good use of alliteration if not too over bearing or wordy

    Literary Devices - I dont mind a concept not utilizing a story if executed well, but if your going to give me a story i look for all literary elements. . . Plot, setting, protagonist, antagonist, narrative, dialogue, conflic, mood, theme .... all the things i need to bring it all together

    and lastly, I like lots of imagery. The ability for someone to put me in the characters shoes, feel what they are feeling, see what they are seeing etc.

    I consider all things and at the end of it, the most important thing especially in close mataches is to determine which verse was simply the most entertaining to me.

    The things i would say not to do . .. for me personally

    NO LONG BAR! Keep every line at a reasonable length
    Dont write in paragraph form either. line to line is the easiest to represent how it should flow to a reader
    keep grammatical mistakes to a minimum
    be creative, nobody likes a played topic. It can be pulled off if the execution is stellar, but typically will work against you

    thats all i really got for now

    categories are stupid expecially the ones from RR, to see a dope piece lose by one category is something else.

    i dont care about categories if people need to spell them out to help guide their vote, i just think it needs to be understood that there are instances where even if a writer won the majority of categories, dont always result in having the winning verse. there is always subjective elements to every battle that has to be considered and cannot be denied

    Yes your votes are going to be based if categories anyway but I think itís annoying to spell it out like that and also the fact it looks like a checklist of sone sort so itís unnecessary if you can still lose having won all the categories
