I will start by saying I am a go with the flow kinda person... so what is decided as a board is good for me.

That being said.... from reading the responses regarding the theme that was picked I wanted to get more feed back.

The voting had 3 options, 2 were very close, and at the last minute it looks like the theme chosen was the winner.

Now it seems we have many who do not care for the theme much.

Would you like to run another poll with just the 2 options? Or let it be as it is?

I figured we could do this poll and see

I like it! But I won't be offended if anybody wants to re-vote. I'll go with whatever you gals want!

Wow, so close! I voted not a fan, but the way it was decided was fair, and obviously the majority chose it, so I think it should stand.

Doesn't matter to me either way. I like the fall theme and the pixie/pirate theme, so I can go either way.

I'm a go with the flow person as well, so I'm fine with whatever! I think it was voted for fairly as well!

Seriously if a winning vote can't decide a board theme, how about we don't have one? People can put whatever graphics in their signatures that they want regardless of a theme!

I think it's a little weird (and I usually like weird!) but it won. Peter Pan was on Disney last night and I tried to come up with ideas from it but they are boarderline creepy when applying to babies.

"tic toc crocodile clock" for due dates?

other boards that I was a member of had a preliminary vote to narrow it down to two, then voted between the two highest from the original vote, so it makes sense to me. I haven't looked at the results of this vote, but I think either a new vote between the two highest, or just simply taking the winning vote of the last one, would be fine. It doesn't seem like a big deal to me.

I was thinking of the doing the vote with the top 2, since I think it was 9 votes for the 3rd place?

We will see...

I really like the theme, but it did seem like the vote favored the fall themed side more. I voted Pixies and Pirates, but if people feel so strongly about it, I don't mind the fall theme. Pumpkin Patch reminds me of Cabbage Patch Kids so I think it's cute as well.

We could just tweak the voting until we end up with the absolutely most overused theme for october for any DDC, hallmark card, holiday decor, banner ad, you name it. Pros - it would end the debate, nobody would have to create a special logo or graphic for it (google will be enough), and we could lift the board names. Con - it didn't win the vote, and is boring.

The first pro is enough for me. Let's go Pumpkins!

I really don't care what our board theme is. BUT, there was a vote, pirates and pixies won...think we should just keep it and live with it.

There were other themes that I preferred over the themes in the 'final' vote... I was actually surprised by the top 3.

Honestly, I don't get why this is a big deal... 12 people are cool with it so far and 2 people hate it. Looks like the overwhelming majority doesn't really care.

I voted for not a fan but whatever, we can make do.

I'm not a big fan of pirates but fairies are still cute so I think it can be interesting. If others want a re-vote that's fine with me but honestly I think it's just a waste of time and we should stay with the theme that originally won.

I'm not a fan of the pirates and pixies thing (I like cheesy boring pumpkin or fall theme), but I wouldn't want a revote and theme change to upset people.

This is totally unrelated, but I read "cheesy" and it made me really hungry for a cheeseburger...

Yeah, asking for a revote seems sort of bogus to me.

Mind you, it's not a super-huge deal to me, but I feel like when a question is formally asked and answered, it's against the rules to ask the question again. When it comes to polling, this introduces all kinds of weirdness into the system - that's why we never re-poll unless there was a tie.

FWIW I won't participate in a revote. If my first vote didn't count, I don't expect subsequent votes to matter either.
