Hello fellow GLOBO's,



I am searching for a new name for the guide listings. Guide seems not to be the right name for those "tips" and a bit confusing to new members.



Any suggestions for a good name?



Andy

"Recommendations" is accurate, but a bit long and not real catchy...



"Raves" or "Thumb's Up" also indicates that these are only positively reviewed inns, restaurants, tour operators, museums, etc.



"Tips" is kinda general, but has great virtue in its brevity... "Suggestions" is another possibility.



Tough choice! The more I think about it, the better "Guides" looks!

I agree with Andy that 'guide' is not the right name. When I first joined I was confused as I was not quite sure whether it meant people or books. Although the full name " World Travel Guide" is quite good, its abbreviation to 'guide' is not a happy choice.



I like 'useful people, good eats and cheap sleeps', but it is a bit long and doesn't cover all categories like museums and secret spots.



What about 'Yellow Pages'. It is not very original but I think they are known in most countries as places where to find useful information.



I would opt for its old, long name: 'World Travel Guide', not abbreviated.



Andy, did you notice that in the guide menu 'accommodations' has disappeared, at least I think that was in it, or maybe it was 'hotels'. It now begins with 'hostels'. This may put off people who are looking for hotels and guesthouses.

What about "nitty gritty".

I think it conveys getting down to the nut or essentials of things and is still catchy and not too long.

Cheers,

Yellow pages or tips sounds good, ... but why not call it member tips, because it are all tips from members.



I also have to admit that I get confused by the term guide.

Hello everybody,



thank you for all your suggestions. Guides are now called "Travel Tips". This seems to be the most precise name for it.



Best regards,



Andy
