Round 2 - Tagline Vote

Rules for Round 2 Voting:
  • Vote for up to 7 of your favorite taglines
  • Do NOT vote for more then 7
Thanks for going though this process over and over until we have a winner. It might seem a bit overkill but it will ensure the best tagline wins.

FYI - I moved all entries with more then 10 votes in the Round 1 Vote (located here) over to this Round 2 poll. As stated please vote for your favorite 7.

I think the majority of English speakers world-wide would say 'u'.

Is it OK to vote multiple times? Or are you keping tags on who votes and for what? I mean is this a free democratic vote?

I can audit the vote but in these multiple selection rounds we expect our members to be honest and limit their votes to 7 choices. Next round it will be 4 choices and after that we will be near the end and you will only get to choose for a single entry in the semi-finals and finals.

It seems there is a clear tagline way ahead right now but that does not mean that it will win once we get to the semi-finals and final round. On another site we went through this same process and medium weight contender took the lead in the final vote when the membership at large was emailed asking them to vote. They will have a more broad view of things and will vote more off the cuff or instinctively (not to say that is good or bad).

So through these early rounds of filtering we are letting our active members do the hard work of filtering it down to those last three.

I view and post on this forum because of what it is saying. The tag line was not that big of deal to get started. Very few good boating forums.

First and formost it should say what we are posting. I do agree that key word searches would get you more new visits with the proper "Tag Line".
