Noted Staffell. So it's a prob good idea to do a google before submitting anything! :-)

thanks for the votes blitzpeed...!

TTU, the theme song slogans are very nice!

Gingivitism

hey guys got a couple of new ones up today, not sure if they're up to scratch, head over to my slogans page and see :)

HaloGirl

Blitzspeed, you have several good ones. I especially like vegetarians, penny and world domination. I also like "human interaction" but wonder if it would be better in present tense:
I am so not prepared for human interaction today.


HaloGirl

Gingi, I like rain, but it might be too sad for Typetees. Funny seems to do better here.

Gingivitism

yeah i suspected as much... guess thats just my mood today in rainy ol' britain :(

Spam69

Love this from puppet meat -

I'm Not Losing, I'm Just Preparing For A Dramatic Comeback.

Gingivitism - love the rain one although I think it would be suited to a song lyric than a slogan.

Halo - go with this one :I'm completely self-motivated. ...What should I do next?

Spam69

I have this slogan but I'm one character over..Grrr

Any ideas how to shorten this ?:

Dogs Are So Judgemental.They Only Ever See Things In Black & White

SuperRyan

@ AllureandVine - Voted! Great CAPS slogan!

@ HaloGirl - I really like your apostrophe abuser slogan! Voted!

SuperRyan

Maybe take out 'ever', David?

HaloGirl

Thanks, Spam and SuperRyan.

I agree with SuperRyan; take out "ever".

Spam69

Thanks Ryan - tried taking other words out and playing around with it but not that for some reason. Cheers.

Welcome matrix - Ross will probably tell you that you need to get yourself an avatar. I have to say most of your slogans run along a similar theme at the moment, but keep working at them. This was my favourite:

T-shirt seeks reliable owner for fun times

wow I kinda feel bad. I had no idea that slogan was used before, I hope you still love me everyone.

you wouldn't believe the number of high scoring slogans i've come across in this group that have been done before. Even some of mine which I thought were original have been done before. i'm not saying anyone's copying, sometimes a really funny slogan works because actually, it's so obvious!

Gingivitism

spam, yeah i kinda agree actually. it popped into my head on the rainy walk to work this morning and i thought it was kinda cute, but it's not best suited to a tee-shirt :)

JBWell

Whew! you guys are up and flying already!
That scared me! I have a habit of deleting things when I type too fast or am up to late! I thought I did something to my 'favorites' because all of the sudden it was gone! I was like deer in headlights. let me get off this computer and try again tomorrow!
I'm gonna vote for everybody on the last 6 pages -i'm sure I must have missed someone so nows actually a good chance to catch up :) I'll let you guys know!

JBWell

Puppetmeat- voted your new one- dramatic comeback! (oh and happy birthday!)

Guys- I really have to say that I'm waiting for a lot of you to get printed! I really think you have a lot of great stuff out there!
I don't know what's taking the shirt fairies so long to find you!

PuppetMeat
PuppetMeat profile pic Alumni

Thanks JB! Yeah, this thread has kinda picked up where the old one left off. Going through maybe 1-2 pages a day was the old trend, and that seems to be happening here as well.

Also, I caught up on a bunch of your latest slogan goodnesses. Very nice! :)

Tikimasters

My latest one aren't doing so hot. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can make them better? If you haven't voted, please check them out and let me know what you think about em'

Thanks :)

HaloGirl

PM - Happy Birthday! It surprises me that you're so young - you're so eloquent and clever, you come off a bit older here (that's a compliment). I like your spin on the time machine and think it's worth a sub.

Tiki - I like your free refills slogan.

Lunchbox - Definitely go with "endless series" for pop culture.

HaloGirl

Tiki - Since you asked... regarding pretend to get along, push comes to shove and center of the universe... There's nothing particularly wrong with these, but their all just a bit too obvious. They lack a hook, a twist or a joke to take them from mere statements of fact to something that makes you read them twice and smile. You have a lot of high-scoring slogans, so I'm sure you'll come up with some new good ones. I already gave props to free refills; it seems to be in a good place right now.

Since I have been a member of this community, I have noticed people occasionally coming on here and getting really upset about their slogan ratings, and even talking about targeted attacks. I've gotten weary of it, so much so that some days I do not even want to check this blog. So, I would like to make a comment about it.

Everyone's slogan ratings go up and down. I don't know if these "targeted attacks" actually exist, but if they do, the same must happen for designs, because it is a rare instance when a design actually breaks 3.00 out of 5. I would not doubt it if there were some young kids or even bitter older people who think it is fun just just rate all designs "0" without even looking at them, and say "omg, no" to all slogans they see without actually reading them.

I see that slogans print with between 50-70% approval rating, sometimes even WAY less like in the 20% range! So, when sloganeers cry and complain that their slogans have gone down from something REALLY high like 89/90% to a score than is also REALLY high like in the 70-80% range, it makes me feel sad, like they have lost touch with reality and also perhaps that they don't fully understand how this works. It isn't simply, "whoever gets the highest score wins", it also isn't even "whoever has the best slogan wins". "The best slogan" is a totally subjective idea, impossible to determine. The slogans have always and will always be chosen by the Threadless staff, the end.

When you put something out there, a design or a slogan, it can get slammed immediately and tank, or do really well. If you are one of the lucky ones who has a design or slogan that is doing really well, the score is bound to fluctuate from time to time. It would be insane if it just rocketed to the top without ever wavering.

I would just like to see that as sloganeers we have some kind of honour and dignity about this process, and not come on here and moan and complain every time your slogan does not do as well as you thought it should. I've had loads of slogans that I personally loved, but had to delete due to very low scores. Also, my highest scoring slogan is 75%, so just a warning, you wont get my sympathy vote if you are complaining that yours has sunk to 89% or something else ridiculously high.

PuppetMeat
PuppetMeat profile pic Alumni

Hah, thanks HaloGirl. I fully take that as a compliment. :)

Bonnie, I kinda understand where you're coming from. But I have a few thoughts regarding this, if you don't mind.

I think most people don't mind when their slogans drop. I think people start getting upset when all of their slogans drop. This type of rapid fall indicates some form of attack (or at least a certain disregard for reading said slogans and rating them objectively), which is something you can rationally complain about. I mean, when there are only 104 slogan prints up for grabs per year, and there are so many great slogans floating about, people want to have the best shot at getting noticed. Scores aren't everything, but they are important.

I've come to just accept this as a side effect of sloganing. I think most other people also come to just deal with it after it happens a few times.

Scoring designs is a whole different animal. Designs are far more visible in comparison to slogans, and therefor tend to get slammed more often. I'm not sure of voting trends of the general public regarding designs, so I won't comment on that too much.

Bonnie76

Hmmm, I see what you are saying Puppetmeat.

I just haven't experienced or witnessed this "targetted attack" thing...although I realise by saying that I am asking for one! Uh-Oh!

It just seemed that the concept of "targeted slogan attacks" was a kind of paranoid idea...
