Vote of the week: Help pick the Theme Park Insider T-shirt slogan
Thank you to all the Theme Park Insider readers who have been suggesting slogans
for our soon-to-debut Theme Park Insider T-shirts. Special thanks to Jorge Arnoldson, Jeff Elliott, Derek O Neill and Rob P, who suggested the slogans listed below.
The first batch of shirts will be going to Team TPI members. If you're planning to throw your hat in the ring and post something for the Team, please do so this week. I'll be sending the invites next week.
As for the shirts, I'm looking for something that would grab the attention of people who saw somewhere wearing it in the parks. Of course, the slogan also should be something that would make you want to wear this shirt in the parks, too. After all, if no one wears the shirt, or no one notices it, what's the point of printing them up? We want the shirts to be something fun for Theme Park Insider readers.
As always, thanks for reading. I'm looking forward to next week, when we'll have several new photo galleries and trip reports on the front page for you, with visits to Disneyland and to Knott's.
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
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.
I went with the "get the know" vote too because I feel that it would translate well as an overall theme park website.
"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"
Get the Know before You go.... LOVE IT!!!!!!
"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!"
Directing the lost since 1999 makes me chuckle and I love it. Hope it wins! Also hope you lsiten to my suggestion about the first for other people ;)
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.
Get the Know...
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 ).
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.
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.
