I know we've posed this question before, but we thought we'd use it to start the new polls section with. Please vote (only once) and if you want to comment, please post below. Thank you!

I would love the site to cover the whole of Britain, but it will always be POE when I post on the forum. POB just doesn't cut it.

Yeah, always POE to you, you 'Wheatleyite' but what if it said Pictures Of England......incorporating pictures of Scotland, Ireland, Wales with an appropriately placed button to click on, which then took you to your selected location?

Beauty has no borders and the British Isles are the most beautiful corner of the world.  Smile I love the idea.

I like to see them all I suppose, though Britain was England to me for more years then it was Britain. I don't call it Brtiish history as much as English HIstory..but it makes no difference to me, I suppose I'd get use to the change over if it would make everyone happy. It's like rather you call an tomato an "toe-mate-o" or an "tom-ate -o"...they are essencially the same thing. For me the terms are interchangable already.

It seems to me that since photos of Scotland and Ireland are already appearing in POE (and Wales very soon), perhaps the question is now moot. C'est fait accompli.

I like the incorporation of Wales, Scotland & Ireland -Wales is my favourite place so I often post pics from there. I know some of the members have been unhappy in the past about pictures of these places being included but POE is just a name to suggest an area. The only thing I was worried about was that there is another Pictures of Britain - didn't want you guys to encounter any problems from that.

Please do not forget the Beautiful Isle of Man is also Great Britain.

I'd love to see more pictures of Scotland and Wales! What a great idea!

I am with everyone else about the site retaining it's current name though.
