Tag, MeFi Mag is it or something else witty February 3, 2012 10:26 AM   Subscribe

MeFi Mag needs a tagline, got any suggestions?

Stuff that's been thrown around so far:

Community Expression
Community Creativity
Words and Shit
An unofficial showcase of the creative side of Mefites
Stuff

Do you have better suggestions?

Another notes: next issue should be out by the end of February at the latest (it has the Nerds theme), along with a new website with all previous content. If you've written something for the mag and want to beta the site and author control panel at some point in February shoot me an email, it's in my profile.

That's good subtext but something like ...

"Words and Shit Not Sold in Stores"

... that would catch my eye. Maybe exchange "Stuff" for "Shit" if you're concerned about coming across as too-cool-as-fuck.

Was there not something done from the infodump listing the zillions of joke MeFi taglines over the years? I'd be there's something lurking in there that would be spot on.

At the risk of being Guy Who Volunteers An Idea Which No One Solicited And Makes Work For Other People, why not make it a contest dealy where people could submit their issue-themed taglines (Sort of like RAW Magazine) via Twitter?

Definitely should have a different tagline with each issue.

Keep in mind that more than words appear in the Mag, so a tagline shouldn't solely be about writing.
