We did, but things have changed. At this point, Shahar is the top player from Israel. Also, although this was the case last year, Anna is divorced so the name of the thread does not make too much sense. It really is time for a change.

Anna is still the most recognizable player from Israel.

Yeah, there's also a 'smash' word in the title. To me the name makes sense. 'Smash Pistols' can refer to the other Israeli girls. 'Pistols' doesn't have to mean Pistolesi.

With that said, I understand if people wants a name change. But we all must agree on a nice name, then we can proceed.

I'm not sure if I want to change the name.

I'm thinking that maybe it's time for a name change- since Shahar is ranked higher than Anna, and has more and more fans. It would probably get more people to enter this forum.

That being siad, I'll go with whatever the majority thinks.

I think, therefore I purr.

I'm not trying to diminish Anna's accomplishments. But I think that we can all agree that she is not the only prominent player from Israel anymore. Personally, I would prefer a name that is not specific to any one player.

There were a few names suggested the last time and I can not remember all of them. But I would vote for "Kadimah - the Israeli players' forum." I realize that not everyone knows what "Kadimah" means, but some of the other threads use non-english words. I imagine that many fans have heard Israeli players shout this during a match the same we all have heard "Vamos" from the Spanish players.

To be honest, I've not heard of 'Kadimah' before.

It's understandable if you all want the name change. Just make sure it's catchy and interesting, something like the current name. I'm not a fan of the simple and boring names. But then, that's just me.

Hmmm...I have a nice idea

There's in the bible the "Sons of Israel" - who walked 40 years in the desert.
"The daughters of Israel" can be cool

"Kadimah" might be the Hebrew word for "come on", but its also now the name of the biggest political party in Israel (well, they will be after the elections). So I'm thinking using that word in the forum's name might not be such a good idea.

I think, therefore I purr.

There's a decision? I think that we should decide on 4 names and open a pool - the name with the biggest amount of votes will win
