Creative Brainstorm... Are You Game? --> Ep Slogan / Tagline

So I have been thinking that EP needs a slogan up in the header... it reminds us all why we are here and it tells the new people who may come to us what we are all about too.

 

Right now, we have some banners in each section, but those don't necessarily get the job done.  We also have the homepage big banner... but again, that only shows on the actual homepage.

I want to change this... and I really want your opinions and ideas.  So check out the image below -- you will see where I want this "slogan" to live just below the actual logo and site name...



 

So here are some suggestions and ideas.  Please vote for only one or two in your comment and tell me why you like that one best... also feel free to share you own idea.

And now... the list:

Option 1:
"I ____________________" -- the way this would work is that it would actually rotate so that saw a mix of our groups like "I feel bad for Britney Spears," "I love to read," "I lost a loved one to cancer," and so forth.  There is a real concern here that having something that is animated like this in the header is actually super disturbing and will not be something you guys would like.

Option 2:
Life's Who, What, When, Where and Why

Option 3:
The Who, What, When, Where and Why of the Internet

Option 4:
Who, What, When, Where, Why and Sometimes How

Option 5:
Everything There is to Say About Life

Option 6:
The Library of Life

Option 7:
The Library of Life Lived to the Fullest

Option 8:
Stories of Life

Option 9:
Life Through Stories

Option 10:
Life Lived in Words

Thank you in advance for your feedback, thoughts and inspirations.  As a quick related note, please do not think that because something simple like this is shared hoping for feedback and input from members of our community that we are not diligently working on new features, refinining existing ones and various other bigger projects.  That is a common misconception -- I am not sure where it comes from, but please understand that we are very dedicated to the big stuff and that is No. 1 priority.

I like option #1 even though you say it's something "you guys wouldn't like" but I like it! You could link to the experiences you put on also, I think that would be awesome!

I totally love option 5 and option 1 they are the best

Step into our world. We're always there. We Care



Perhaps not the best suggestion off the top of my head nor better than others. I do feel it needs to be simple and inviting, rather than attention grabbing or lengthy. On the subject of the homepage, I think it looks too business like, perhaps due to the dark blue background and small font, though bigger is not always better and colours are tricky. Sorry you know all this. I look forward to the new look and have the highest regard for the team who work so hard.

I think that Option 4:

Who, What, When, Where, Why and Sometimes How

Basically tells about EP .

None of them come up to the level of what the site is - keep trying - I'll give it some thought today and see what I come up with.

I can't say that I really like any of them. I don't think it does this site justice. I think you should try something that will jump out at people. NOT FOR THE WEAK AT HEART, Wear your **** kickers and bring an umbrella cause it gets thick around here. You know one of the ongoing problems on this site are people that get on here and confess and then whine because someone wants to tell them what they think about it. If you don't have a thick skin it can get to you. I'm not one of those people, but there are some out there. Oh well, said my piece. Sombody will probably get mad but really don't care. Going to bed.

I love option 6 & 9...very simple, expressive, not complicated covering a myraid of subjects.

Options #8 and #6 are good.



But EP is about people connecting with people through stories, confessions, Q&A and Blogs, making friends, helping people, and sharing knowledge. (and suffering the trolls) So maybe try to incorporate that into the logo...

"Living Documents of Life" try my idea PLZ....

I think that #6 Library of life is very cool then #10 to complete life experience's word set up!

I actually don't really care for any of those slogans, but if I had to pick, #9 and 10 are best.

1 to 4 no thanks - as a new member I would have been put off by some of number one's titles, 6 to 10 OK - 'life through stories' seems to sum it up quite well. Love the versatility of EP and would hate it to be too well defined as that limits creativity and individual expression although some seem to get a buzz from exploiting the latter. EP definitely is an education re others lifestyles and opinions. The option of anonymity is both an asset and an added dimension which gives some members a chance to play with different ideas and approaches. How we each decide to use the site can influence others and personally I have found it quite a profound learning experience in redefining the way I make choices and communicate. Thanks for your work.

I like number 5: Everything There is to Say about Life :)



Also like the sound of "Life in Words".

VOTE #6







SUGGESTION Life viewed passionately

Option 6 or 7. Reading that would remind me that its about the experiences that make up a life and that a lot of those experiences are catalogued here. The second one incorporates that too but also adds to the fact that you can draw more from these experiences as they are real and have been lived? :) Xx

Options 6, 8, and 9 -- and Blasphemous Angel's suggestions.

I like options 8 or 9. I think anything moving will just interfere with loading the page.

The Library of Life sounds awesome.

I'm torn between 6 & nine.

If not, how about "coming together through life experiences and beyond" because ep is more than just writing stories, it's about commenting, asking questions,answering questions, sharing dreams, doing challenges,making friends and playing games.

No 2 .keep it straight up & simple

I like option 8 and optiion 10.

Mosaic... we are working on a bunch of things and actually, you may have missed a few correspondences and stories, but we are working through hopefully making positive functional changes throughout the site. One thing that many short change is just how comprehensive the profile and my pages are which include features like the library, address books, messaging, gifts, gestures, greeting cards and so forth.



These are big projects and we are really trying to make great changes to them that people want rather than simple bandaids. And with that.. some of those things that seem "easy" to the nekkid eye are actually quite complex.



With that said, please rest assured that something like this -- a creative exercise does not take away from the work being done on bigger things such as you outline in your comment.



EPJake

I like

Option 6:

The Library of Life



Option 9:

Life Through Stories

I like option 4...

Stories of Life

Cool.

I like options 6 and 10.. More suggestions...

Experience Project: A Life Sharing Experience.

Sharing our lives one story at a time



just thought I would throw those out there

lol....... No.4's got my vote.

I like option #1 creatively but wonder how it would look when really put in place. I would have to see it for sure.



Other than that... I like No. 4. It makes me think and applies to everything across EP.

Options 6 and 8

I like the 9th one. :)
