About

Poet Tree Poetry

Using the app, poetry is created as you collaborate with others or create poetry on your own by arranging verses as tree branches. To aid your style, syllables and rhymes are displayed as numbers and colors so you can easily create patterns or avoid them for free verse. At any time as branches are added, moved, edited and deleted you can save branches as a favorite tree so they will remain unchanged. Poetry can be uploaded to the site with descriptive tags to be organized as a tree with other trees having the same tag and as a tree in a forest with trees having similar tags so specific types of poetry can easily be discovered.

App Uses:

  • Create poetry with the aid of many in app tools
  • Invite your friends to add verses 
  • Compete to have best matched patterns and most contribution
  • Post poetry to be discovered by others
  • Allow others that discover your poetry to revise verses
  • Discover others’ poetry and revise verses
  • Protect your verses using the time stamps to prove when you created it
  • Share poetry anonymously
  • Team up with a song writer or ghost writer to guide what you want written 
  • Create group poetry on personal topics with family and friends
  • Create scholastic poetry with professors and students so studying can be fun
  • Start poetic discussions with everyone in the world to explore perspectives on any topics
  • Discover solutions to any problems by having a poetic discussion and maintaining constructive manners with all involved

Poetry Measurement:

Every tree has a measured % Match that is calculated by comparing rhyme patterns and syllable counts from the respective lines of 2 branches so every branch is compared to every other branch and assigned the highest % Match. If there are no repeating rhymes in either compared branches then the compared lines need same rhyme rather than same rhyme pattern to match and when syllable count difference for respective lines is 1 then half match credit is given. Once % Match is calculated for each branch, % Match Average is calculated for the Tree. 

App Tools:

  • Syllable count and rhymes displayed as numbers and colors so verse patterns can easily be repeated
  • % Match calculated to measure how well verse patterns match in syllable count and rhyme structure
  • % Rhymes calculated to measure percentage of lines each poet contributes
  • Rhyme and synonym dictionary to exchange words
  • Verse structure of branches in tree for arrangement and revision
  • Add words to dictionary by defining unknown words with syllable count and known rhyme so %M calculations are correct 
  • Tree chat so all poets in tree can chat
  • Poet 1 controls tree and other poets in tree
  • Each poet can anonymously tag each verse with an emoji to express how they feel about the verse
  • Save selection of any verse revisions as a favorite Tree to keep and share
  • Each verse is time stamped so Poet can stake claim if needed
  • New branches sent as notifications to quickly inform other poets of new verses
  • Categorize uploaded poetry using keywords so it can easily be discovered
  • Upload poetry to share as anonymous or any name and with option for others to join your tree

Blockchain Hype:

Implementing the Po.et Blockchain will provide a path so poets can secure and market their verses through the Po.et network. This proof of existence will be more creditable than the timestamp currently in the app and provide value as an intellectual property rights.

Converting into a fully decentralized blockchain would give all the inherent features that blockchain messaging provides by encrypting verses and the rewards from the blockchain could be directed towards best poets to incentivize participation. If full conversion cannot be achieved, then an imaginary blockchain can be fashioned so poets are rewarded without verses being encrypted.

Mission Statement:

The mission for Poet Tree Poetry is to solve world problems through constructive and collaborative poetry while being governed in a decentralized fashion so everyone can contribute. To accomplish this goal, the majority of profits will be controlled by round table member votes to make the app better in fulfilling the mission.

Risks and challenges

The iOS app and website are already constructed with most everything functioning correctly but there are some minor bugs so the testing period may be extended to make sure everything gets polished. Early access will remain active during testing and the seeds from your campaign pledge will be refunded after testing so you are challenged to plant as many trees as you can to make the most from this risk.
