I'm sure this has been raised before, probably more than once, but why not fold this forum into the UK one and just label it contemporary poetry? (Or just poetry--nothing necessarily contemporary about it.) Not just because this one's dead, but because it's odd that, there being no generic poetry forum, everything from voice to marketing concerns to genres is apparently part of "British and Irish poetry". Most of the time I'm barely aware of that fact; it sure feels like we're just discussing poetry, full-stop.
Perhaps there was a good reason for the separation in the early days of POF, but there doesn't seem to be one now.

It was originally separated on the Poem forum, but you're right. There's no reason to separate the two.
Except that it was humorous to do so. From my point of view.
