The tourism industry must have had a bit of a knock to wheel out this old twaddle again...

Re: New7Wonders of Nature: Matterhorn & Aletsch

Am I being extremely dumb or am I not the only one who can't figure out how to select my nominees??? I tried clicking, double clicking, dragging and nothing seems to work

Re: New7Wonders of Nature: Matterhorn & Aletsch

The short list has been created now. Aletch Glacier that was on the original list that I mentioned did not make it to the shortlist.

To vote, you have to select seven places. For each one, select the picture and click on add to list (at the bottom). Then move to stage 2 to vote.

And presumably the 8th Wonder will be a website
that doesn't require a Flash plugin...
