Question A new name for a new book club: What will it be?

Time to pick a new name for the new book club!

The poll of all the suggested names will run for three days. At the end, there will be one of three possibilities:
  • One name gets at least 40% of the vote. That's it! The club has a new name.
  • Two or more names get at least 40% of the vote. There will be a one-day runoff poll among them.
  • No name gets at least 40% of the vote. The top three vote-getters will be in a one-day runoff poll.

This is a multiple-choice poll. Vote for as many names as you'd like.

One of my votes included "The New Leaf Book Club" ... though I must admit I'd prefer it if the "The" was dropped.

Not sure if I'll ever manage to be a regular, but participating as much as I can is something I'd like to add to add to my 2018 resolutions.

I hope to actually participate more this time around. Personal issues got in the way and I'm hoping to make progress this year.

If there's a lot of people involved, that's a good thing

I added the club to my reading challenge for this year. (And I suspect we can drop that extraneous "The" )

No you cannot drop "The". If you did, it would not be the same name people voted for. So no, "The" cannot go. It has to stay because it's part of the name that was voted for. It's not extraneous due to being in the name voted for.

Are the names not voted for so bad that even the people who nominated them won't vote for them?

The nominations were like brainstorming, just because we nominated something doesn't mean that we think it is the best idea or haven't changed our mind. I'm sure at least a couple of those were made in jest anyway.

Unless something changes in the next 15 minutes we won't need to have a run-off vote.

Last call everyone....

And New Leaf has it!

I'll be posting some badges you can use in a public album sometime in the next couple of days.

Sorry, nope.

The New Leaf has it. Remember, The is part of the name voted for. It has to remain or it's a difference name and not valid and we'd need a new vote all over again. So leave the The.

For you, Jon, I'll have a version with The in it. Really, grammatically, 'the' is an article, and therefore optional. But if you're seriously concerned, you can use the badge with The in it.

OK, I've created an album here in my profile, and made it public. All logged on members of MobileRead should be able to see the pictures in the album, and attach them to their signatures. The link is: https://www.mobileread.com/forums/al...p?albumid=1305.

Note: This includes versions with The in the title, and those without. Use as you wish, though I note that Dazrin will have some suggested code shortly, and issybird will have links in the official New Leaf Book Club initiating announcement.

ETA: My new signature includes the badge, and a link to the Book Club subforum. And still meets the signature height and width guidelines.
