I like this idea @Skevans, I agree that sometimes words aren’t enough.
I’ve suggested something similar before on another thread. Here are some of my input.
Asking CHs to describe the Name might not work well when they’ve had trouble coming up with a satisfactory one in the first place. Describing something that is already existing could yield better results. For example, characteristics of the owner(s), the characteristics of their targeted customers/users, characteristics of the product, atmosphere of the place, etc.
Let CHs choose what’s most relevant:
- I’m the owner/founder and I am…
- Our users/customers are…
- We want to change the world to be…
Or, [I’d like to describe something not found in the list … ]
Another point, there could be so many polarizing characteristics that it becomes unwieldy. Maybe we could list some defaults, then provide the ability to add new sliders with two blank input boxes on each end.
Additionally, only ‘chosen’ sliders should be shown to contestants, too many sliders can end up confusing everyone. I actually feel there are too many sliders already all showing (even when not used) in logo contests.
This feature should be optional, some CHs only have time for Copy/Paste.
I wonder how many sliders we contestants can think up?
