Hello everyone - If you've been following the Management Team announcements you know we are looking for catchy phrases that best express WG's mission statement. Let's hear any and all ideas from you. dap, I believe you had a very pithy one "got wildlife???" which I really like. Simple, to the point and funny!

So get creative people! Once we get a number of them we'll take a collective vote on the favorite. Have fun with it!

I'm not exactly creative but.... I know what I like and I like Dappy's signature.

I'm with Equil - I think Dap's signature works well, but can we use it given it's an unknown quote?

Just today, while driving home, I started thinking of ideas for a T-shirt design. I hope to mock up some kind of thumbnail before too long.

The funny thing is, when I suggested "got wildlife?" I was saying we needed something *like* that...but i was wary thinking that "got milk?" thing has been overdone. I'm okay with it if that is what others want...but I was hoping for something more original.

Today, I thought of "Remember butterflies?"

I *love* it! But, you'd probably have to add the disclaimer "Unless you are a rotten, good-for-nothin' spammer--then LOOK OUT!"

Thanks. I was thinking about how to create a T-shirt related to that myself. My other thought on my drive home was "What's moving in your yard?" ...but I'm not sure about it.

disuhan, I'm really upset that I had to add "unknown" because, when I first used that quote (which I got from a post HERE), there was a name that went along with it. I changed my signature for a short time, and when I went back to it, I couldn't find the woman's name. (If memory serves, it was a woman.)

If someone can find it, please let me know, I'd love to give credit in my signature line. I've tried the search option and even asking in a thread with no luck. Maybe the administration has a better search option or another trick up thier sleeve to find it.
