    Default What does everyone think....re:board name poll

    Marla (Princess & The Pea) suggested we do another poll that is public where we can see everyone who has voted to make sure it is just us April mommies and not anyone else, as they have had problems with this in the past. What does everyone think about that?

    I like this idea, but I also thought that when names were being picked it was more of just throwing out idea's I think it was done a little 2 soon we have had a few new moms join since then.

    I'm indifferent. Ha.

    I say yes because I preferred the Snuggle Bunnies name, however I feel Sprouts won fair and square. And as another poster said, there are a bunch of new mommies who didn't get to vote on the original one when we threw around a bunch of names.

    I say no because like I said, Sprouts did win.

    I would like to think there are honest people on here and no one who isn't an April Mommy voted.

    So either way, I will be okay with what's decided.

    I agree with this. I also preferred Snuggle Bunnies, but was not emotionally invested in the name. They way I looked at it, it is all for fun anyway and just a way to kind of create a board identity/comraderie. I didn't realize that some might take it quite seriously.

    I took the lead on the board names thing because the procedures indicate that when a board does not have it's own designated hosts, a host from another board should lead these type things. I perhaps started the process too early because I was excited to make blinkies for a board I'm a member of. I apologize if I got ahead of myself or if I've offended anyone. Personally, I don't think it's necessary to redo the poll, but if others feel strongly that it was done unfairly or that they didn't get an adequete opportunity to participate, I will be happy to redo the whole thing.

    Again, I apologize if anyone was offended.

    I am the same.....it really doesn't matter either way. I was just speaking from the point of that some people had expressed concern about the vote not being public where it could be seen who voted and it was weighed in on my a mod that her opinion was that another poll be done to make sure only April mommies voted, as they had experienced problems with this in the past. And as far as it being started too early and having new people join.......this is the third board I have been a member of and this one was done the same way as the other. There was an initial poll for everything that was mentioned and it was narrowed down to 2, then another poll was created where those 2 were voted on. We're always going to have new people joining in that unfortunately didn't get to be part of the selection/voting process.

    I am mostly impartial, so I don't feel a need to vote on this one. Would voting yes mean snuggle bunnies might be more likely to win? LOL

    I'm indifferent....well, okay maybe leaning more towards no re vote because I did suggest Sprouts (sorry I'm selfish!! lol). The only reason I would say yes for re vote is because like mentioned....more mommas have joined.

    I just want to see the blinkies!!

    I would hope that only April mommas voted. I know there are some lurkers out there still tho. I dont think there should be another poll. The one up now still has two days right??

    I didn't vote here (yet), I'm indifferent...I'm ok with voting again and ok with going with Sprouts (I voted for Snuggle Bunnies though), like Anna said, it's all for fun anyways and to have a board identity. I'm looking forward to the blinkies!! Anna, just make sure they have bunnies!! hehe...just kidding.
