Recieved no negative complaints against a run-off, so here it is. Less the major objected to slogan.

Thanks!

Only a few more hours left.

Because of how close these are, they may all be winners.
Might have to have a rotating slogan!!

Jeesh... that sounds so... low brow.

An Einstein / Tammy Faye Baker couplet?

Makes Debate Politics sound like the love-child of flyaway hair and cheap mascara.

Please reconsider vauge.

But then you'd just be going back on your own words...

Of course it was meant in jest to add that. ;)

Yes, the slogon is final - was wondering if there was interest to rotate the finalists.

I would vastly prefer to consider this slogan slug-out a dry run and begin anew, but vauge has given his word and I respect that.

I vote yes to rotating the quintet of slogans then... that way we only look silly 20% of the time.

btw: Where will the slogan(s) be located? On the page title bar? Somewhere within the document body? Text or graphic?

Was gunna put it right under the header ads in a gif so that it doesn't hurt our search engine rankings.

It looks way wierd to put it in the header pic.

BTW, I would much prefer one of the other slogans as well. It was the winner up until the very end. :(

But it is light hearted, that is why I wouldn't mind rotation - possibly adding a few more complimenting how we are truely un-biased.

Debate Politics - Your nonpartisan gateway for political discussion.

Debate Politics - "Where difference of opinion rules"

Debate Politics - "A journey of discovery"

Debate Politics - "If it matters... it's here"

Debate Politics - "Information, Intrigue, Inspiration"

Debate Politics - "We kick it hard"

Just a few exemplars :smile:

How is that for placement (see header ads)?

Will work on rotation in a few.

I don't see it.

What I thought was it has no slogan in it.

Do a hard refresh - shift/F5 or shift/refresh - then look at the debate politics pic at the top left.

Looks good vauge :smile:

A suggestion or two for future consideration. Redesign the header graphic and remove the flags. This would loosen up enough room to enable you to place a 'carousel graphic script' (JavaScript) beneath the Debate Politics logo. The carousel could fetch up to 20 slogan graphics from your server and rotate them. Rotation time is a variable, and could be set in the script.

Another nice touch would be a full width 'news streamer' below your header assembly but above the 2 column body of the page. Perhaps this would be available only on the Home Page. An international news feed would probably be more appreciated than a domestic one.

Just a few random Tashahesque thoughts.

I simply like the way you think. :)

We had a news streamer at one time, but it was removed.
I might consider adding a streamer to the news page.
The amber alert is another streamer that might fit well there too.
