Question to the sloganeers
Do you feel that having an updated percentage of the votes that a slogan is getting is a good thing? I think that it skews the voting making the first few votes crucial. If a person has a high score then on some level I think that the voters will want to like it or give it a better score or at least a benefit of the doubt to find a way to like it. And in turn they will also look at a slogan with a low score and tend to vote it down or find it much easier to vote it down. I feel it is similar to seeing polling numbers during an election or seeing results from states and people like to vote for the winner to say they are on the winning side. It sounds stupid but any good campaign manager will tell you that it is very important to get positive poll numbers out in any way shape or form to keep people voting for you. I am not saying that people don’t know how to make up their mind or are lemmings that just follow the crowd, I am saying that on some level I feel the percentage skews the numbers and gives you higher totals or lower totals due to peoples need to be on the right side. I would just like to know your thoughts on the subject.
Ultimately I think that a good slogan is a good slogan and a bad slogan is a bad slogan ( I have plenty of the latter) but I do feel that some scores would change if the percentage was not always on top and easy to see.
I’ll just hang up and listen…
