    I don't think this is any more dismissive of the few non UK users of Esouts than 'Empowering the web for UK Scouts' or whatever was, although the forums can be used by Scouts from other countries the primary purpose is for UK Scouts and the hosting is for UK Scouts only.

    Firstly and foremost Escouts is about providing the free web hosting for UK Scouts. As Escouts hs evolved with the forum and such like it has become more international but again primarily for support for UK scouts. We will never become UK elitist on the forum as some of our international visitors are a big part of community.
    all in all it is just another brick in the wall

    I originally voted for "Supporting Scouting Online", but I now agree with the last couple of posts - this is a UK site first and foremost, and we should reflect that in the slogan.

    I'm sure that regulars like Nele and Jediwannabe will still visit us anyway, and I think we might pick up more international Scout users if we use the "UK" part of the slogan.

    I actually think 'Scouting the Web' is the best just because it's the least specific, and therefore covers everything escouts does :P

    But thats what I love about Escouts! Every one has an opinion and we are all so creative that we love to share!
    Just because you had a poll, doesn't mean that you have to go with the majority - after all its your ball!
