I didn't LOVE any of these 5, but I thought "Follow me, I know what I'm Doing" Went best with the name of the site, which I'm assuming would be above the slogan. So that's how I voted.

Although I'm not in Club TPI, I did suggest the second one (Get the Know Before you Go). How can non-Club TPI peeps buy the shirts once they're done?

Of these I kind of prefer Directing the Lost Since 1999, but they are all fun.

If Follow Me, I Know What I am Doing (which has the early lead) wins, I think I am should become I'm as it rolls off the tongue better. But that's just my opinion.

I picked "Putting you on the right track"

I voted for "Get the Know Before You Go" because you are a very informative site and entertaining also. I love this site. I also would like to know where to puchase this shirt when available, Hey even other TPI merchandise would work also.

I was so confident that my slogan "the happiest place online" would have a chance to be among the top five that I was already thinking how cool would be to have people using a shirt with my idea printed over it.

Well, on the other hand Robert could have had trademark issues with Disney. I also thought about that possibility, but it just was such a good idea to just let it go.

I went with the "get the know" vote too because I feel that it would translate well as an overall theme park website.


While I will purchase a shirt, I wouldn't mind getting one without a slogan!

"Get the know before you go" slogan is too generic. It doesn't make me automatically think Theme Parks, but just online review which could be anything. "Follow Me, I know what I am doing." Is fun and it has this in the moment appeal when you where it in a park. I think it could really make TPI an instantly recognizable brand inside the parks. I also agree that the "I am" should be changed to "I'm"

"Follow me, I know what I am doing" sounds a little pretentious IMHO. I prefer "Get the know before you go".

Funny, I totally forgot which one I voted for! But if I did vote I hope I voted for the "Get the Know Before you Go!"

I agree with Terri and James, "directing the lost since 1999" got my vote. I am always ready to buy a shirt with something funny on it. I couldn't come up with anything for an idea, but I laughed so hard reading many of everyone else's. Bravo folks.

Yeah, "Follow Me..." sounded too pretentious. Plus, no one likes a know it all either. The phrase is way too easy of a target for hecklers as well. So I couldn't vote for it even though it was initially catchy to me. Almost something a movie character would say. But in the end, it's not something I think I'd wear.

I voted for the "Lost/1999" slogan, but I agree if "Follow Me" wins, as it looks like it will, it should be changed to "I'm" rather than "I am." Flows better.

Message heard. The "Follow Me" slogan gets the contraction - "I'm."

Have to be pleased with being selected for the "final 5" and getting at least a vote or two into the bargain ( thanks to those who liked my idea ).
Robert: Will the shirts be exclusive to TPI members ?
If they are it could be fun ( or disturbing depending on your point of view ! ) identifying TPI co-members at the Parks on future visits.

I have to agree with others about the "follow me" slogan being a little too pretentious. I certainly want to support the goodness of this website by making a tshirt purchase. Just not sure if I would feel comfortable going to my home park (SFOG) wearing that particular slogan. I voted for the "get the know before you go". I know it's a little generic, but it seems to fit the theme of this website.

Of these, I'd say a cheesy pun is in order. Either "Get the Drop" or "...Right Track" fits the bill. I voted for "Get the Drop" - short, sweet, punny.

Some inside jokes that were missing from the discussion:

"... then something goes terribly wrong!"
"Word to your Mother!"

I, myself, would love an ironic line that mocks other theme/amusement park blogs...

I also thought "Directing the Lost since 1999" had the best tongue-in-cheek factor without being pretentious. It looks like "Follow me..." is going to win and I appreciate Robert putting this to a vote - but I hope you (Robert) feel free to look at this poll as a suggestion - maybe just to validate your personal favorite - you are the reason we're all here after all.

No matter what the slogan - you can count me in for a purchase of the initial batch since I don't live close to any of the initial Club TPI parks and couldn't apply. I do visit a lot of parks every year and I'll try to be more diligent at posting reviews after visiting.
