Enough with the "nicknames" in the titles of match result threads - yay or nay?

I'd posted a thread before which got some posters favoring, as I do, chilling out on the nicknames in the titles of match results threads

Just to be clear, I'm not and I don't think anyone is hoping that people will stop using them within the thread and in threads that aren't match results.

With that all said - yay (chill out on the "nicknames") or nay (keep 'em coming)?

We don't need another thread like this.
We got the idea in the other threads.
Please some mod can move these threads to Bugs/Errors??
Thank you

Neither. As long as the match result and the player's names are clear and the remarks are not rude or offensive then there is no harm done. If you want strict formality on this then I'm not sure you're going to find it. Give and take..

Jennifer Capriati Lindsay Davenport Kimiko Date-Krumm

Mary Pierce - Katerina Maleeva - Nicole Vaidisova - Li Na - Agnieszka Radwanska - Kim Clijsters - Amanda Coetzer

Baltacha - Keothavong - Watson - Broady - Robson - Webley-Smith - Moore

This is a poll. That way everyone can express their own preference. Oh . . you're welcome.

Just make sure to mention either the surname or first name (to make the thread searchable) then add whatever nickname or random slogan and it should be aight.

Good title ···> Aggy Agniezka beats Fransexy Schiavone
Bad title ···> V def. VIP
