Re: Off-Season Action - NEW NAME OF ANA FORUM

OP is updated with all so far suggestions.

Also i want to say something against two so far most popular suggestions - "Ajde Ana" and "Puppy Love". Both seems perfect for new Ana Forum-Name next season, but problem is we trying to find new name of Ana Ivanovic subforum not only for next season.

Majority of tennis fans (especially Ana's fans) knows what means "AJDE", but on other hand like Kournikova in past or Sharapova nowdays, Ivanovic have more and more non-tennis fans because she is more and more except tennis star "celebrity" also. This sort of fans dont know even about Ana famouos forehand, not only about "Ajde". Also year after year trainings with non-Serbian coaches and sparing partners Ana starts to use often "C'mon" - so what if "Ajde" been outdated soon in Ana case (if she not use "Ajde" so often like in past)???

Talking about "Puppy Love", names with not directly related to player (without "Ana" or "Ivanovic") is always dangeres. I'm not expert for English, but i think that "Puppy Love" is inappropriate name for 25yo girl, so what if seems perfect when Ana have 20? Why to repeat mistake from "Beauty and her Beast" which seems perfect when Ana is 18yo WTA TOP20 girl, but just two years later that name is already outdated for Ana and not suits to her anymore?

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

Puppy Love is a play on the nickname JJ fans gave Ana

Totally agree.

I also think ''Ajde Ana!'' is too simple.

I like ''Ana is love'' a lot.


My suggestion: Anaholics

Ana *sigh* Ivanović.

Re: Off-Season Action - NEW NAME OF ANA FORUM

so, we are trying to update the name of this forum, yet most proposed names are very teeny ("ana is love" is the best out of these, but still). anaholics is not a bad name, but i think i already saw something similar for another player. i still like "beauty and her beasts" most because ana is a beauty, she will remain a beauty and the beasts, well, it's supposed to mean us, her fans. and if beastie boys could use their beastie name long after they stopped being boys i don't see why that would change for us?

the idea that we should all decide which beast each of us wants to be and put that in our sigs never took off, though. but come to think of it, the name is also good because we have cute coalas from a rival fan base wanting to slay dragons and just like gods and spirits in various myths protect heroes we could pretend we are doing that for our heroine. so, i think this name is humorous and playful enough.

oh, and i do not care what people in gm think about the name of this forum anymore than i care about what they think about ana.

Re: Off-Season Action - NEW NAME OF ANA FORUM

Cp6uja, at least a third of those listed in the first post are your own. What about the suggestions from your other thread, i couldnt help to notice some peoples idea did not make the cut. Its okay though, not a big deal, no problemo, not that it matters much anyway, whatever you decide, no stressing over it or anything like that, really
One thought though, for speeding up the process, if a couple weeks goes by with no support for a nominee(as several on the list have), why not start making some cuts, so we can get to the voting or however you'll do it? 'It Girl' so far has no support, i think it should be slashed from the list..And one idea for what Azdaja said, after you have a winner, you could make a poll for the winner versus 'Beauty and her Beasts' , so it has one last chance to survive.

Re: Off-Season Action - NEW NAME OF ANA FORUM

So far 4 names have "massive" support - AJDE ANA! , ANA IS LOVE , PUPPY LOVE and BEAUTY AND HER BEASTS. But because PUPPY LOVE and BEAUTY AND HER BEASTS suggestions also have massive opposition here i think they should be "suspended" - it's not good if many of Ana fans, suporters and subforum guests "hate" name of Ana's forum. PUPPY LOVE irritate many people here because that is unofficial Ana nickname for Jelena Jankovic fans and even if that name right now very good suits to Ana it will be very soon outdated when Ana been litle bit older (she is already not teenager). Problem with BEAUTY AND HER BEASTS is also b/c is now already outdated and not suits anymore to Ana so reason for this action for finding new name for this forum is because over 2/3 of Ana forum visitors which vote dont like that name and want change and also dont forget that in first half of this season BEAUTY AND HER BEASTS forum name easy "won" GM WTAWorld poll-thread about WTAWorld players forum WORST name. So my new suggestion is to close this discussion and just open next week new poll-decission with only two options:

1. Ajde Ana!

2. Ana is Love


So what you think about that, and is better if that poll be with PUBLIC OPTION or not? Of course if some new suggestion reach here also massive support theese days (before opening final poll), they will be included also in final poll.

I give several suggestions (even some which i personaly dont like) only to motivate others to also give more suggestions. BTW many of "my" suggestions is not actualy "my", including both which have biggest support here (AJDE ANA! and ANA IS LOVE). If i understand Nikkiri post (s)he is first which ever here use that "ANA IS LOVE" phrase and no need to explain anybody how often here is used "AJDE ANA!".

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

Re: Off-Season Action - NEW NAME OF ANA FORUM

No poll, I think we should vote by PM so posters can remain anonymous and not receive backlash for not being "fun" and "cool"

Beauty and her Beasts has massive opposition by who?

I think it's not as much an opposition as it's very outdated, imo at least.

Between ''Ajde Ana!'' and ''Ana is love'', I go with the latter.

Ana *sigh* Ivanović.

[sarcasm]yeah, that really broke my heart [/sarcasm]

who cares what people in gm think? should i remind you of all the bullshit that you get to read about ana all the time over there?

also, one of the things people say they don't like about ana is that she always only tries to please everyone and never says anything controversial. aren't we doing exactly that here?

i don't think the 2 proposed names are better than the current one, so i won't be voting for any.

Re: Off-Season Action is continue - NEW NAME FOR ANA FORUM

SUMMARY:
Ajde Ana! and Ana is Love have biggest support here and Final Poll between this two options finished TIED (20 votes both, with 9 votes for "against both" options). In Tie-Break Voting "Ajde Ana!" beat "Ana is Love" 13-8, but because some Ana's forum visitors complains (supporters of current name) instead to ask from forum administration "Ajde Ana!" name change i open new 7 days long "SUPERFINAL" Poll between current "Beauty and her Beasts" and "Ajde Ana!" which is closed by moderator Dexter already after about 1 hour after opened.

So what to do now? Only unacceptable solution for me is to stay current "Beauty and her Beasts" after shameful support in August referendum about name change (just 26.5% support current name and 5.9% is not sure) and offensive actions of minority of this forum visitors which still support that option. Now when "Ana" is global brand its nonsense to have name without "Ana" part and personally i'm sure that term like "Beasts" even like joke is totally opposite with Ana in all ways (simple no connections).

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)
