Ok so there was quite a bit of discussion today about our loved and trusted web site.

Well understand the reason for the name change, BUT, we still promote CruiseWirral. Whic everyone agrees is no longer a site as it's titled AutoWirral now.

I therefore put the poll to the people for the name of our car/crusie site.

Cruising is coming back, it died for a few years but it is returning.

Name
single choice
AutoWirral
42%, 5 Votes
CrusieWirral
58%, 7 Votes
Total Votes: 12
Voting on this poll ends: 20th May 2008 9:00pm

Gotta stay as AutoWirral imho; although Cruisewirral will never die and will always be a pull. It just sit's nicely under AutoWirral.

AutoWirral can cater for all car enthusiasts in general whereas Cruisewirral can only really appear to cruisers.

Matty the problem we have is the banners, stickers and clothing is all branded crusiewirral.

As mark offered to hand the name and server over at cost if he was willing to PM the running costs to me i'd gladly do some workings out and see what we could come up with.

i'm not saying it is a bad idea, it was cw when i joined and always will be to me at the meets, like you say all the banners etc are cw, so makes sense to still use that at meets/shows etc....

Matty hit the nail on the head, I agree, it does get confusing having 2 different names for the same forum, however, in order to gain more members, Autowirral needs to exist as there is only so far you can go with Cruising as you are targeting a specific audience.

For cruises and events such as the modified nationals, I will use the Cruisewirral name as it works best in these areas, but it should remain part of Autowirral as Autowirral is the generic site and applies to a lot more people.

If you go to Cruisewirral.com and click the forums link, you will see that Autowirral and Cruisewirral share the same members and forums.

I just don't get the moving with the times and re-branding something, maybe i'm just old fashioned.

If it aint broke don't fix it.

But hey, leave the poll to run and see what people say anyway.

you could have made the poll start from now and view results when you have voted rather then being a lapsed time one starting tomorrow smack
