Voting Is Over! Ana In Wonderland Wins Poll 1!!!

Since these names are "fresh" in our minds, I've decided to do this poll first. PLEASE VOTE NOW!!


VOTING IS OVER. THE TOP TEN NAMES ARE IN POST #3. i WILL RE-OPEN THE POTHER POLL ON THURDAY.

PLEASE DISCUSS ALL NAMES.

Guys please chose ten names from the suggestions we have int he first post. Voting will start today and end on Saturday. That way we'll have a good five days to "discuss" the top ten before I open the poll next Thursday.


Just list the ten names you would like to see in the poll. We're not doing the +/- again as I will not have time to count them all again.

Thank you



Hello everyone

We already have eight great names but apparently more are needed. Please make some suggestions and discuss them here.

Though the voting thread with the poll is temporarily closed those votes still count. I will open a NEW POLL THREE WEEKS FROM TODAY so that voting can continue on that set of eight names. Everyone who voted on that poll already will not be allowed to vote again. This will be for people who did not get to vote before the poll was closed. That poll will be open for five days.

The day that poll closes, I will open up a new poll for THE NEW SET OF NAMES that have been voted for in this thread. This poll will also be open for five days.

THE TOP SCORING NAME FROM EACH POLL WILL GO ON TO THE FINAL!

Once the top two names are in, I will leave the discussion for those names open for two days. At midnight the second day, I will open the poll for the final. That poll will be open for five days. We should have our new name on the last day of the US Open

If you have a problem with this system speak NOW or forever hold your peace. If I do not get any strong sensible arguments as to why this schedule is no good by Sunday August 9, 2009 then we will continue as planned. There will be no stoping, there, will be no arguing, there will be no issues. Thank you in advance for your cooporation



All posts like the following:

I hate it

I like it

I love it

I don't like it

It sucks

Will Be disregarded. If you like a name please give a reason. If you dislike a name also give a reason. Please do not insult anyones suggestions. Please be respectful to everyone one in this thread. Do not refer to peoples posts as "BS" or "Stupid".

I will keep this first post updated will all suggestions. Keep in mind this is for new suggestions. Any name that has already been eliminated in the previous vote will NOT be included. I will pull some names from the 2008 thread as they were never officially voted for.


Thanks in advance for your cooporation

Ana's Court

The Ivanovicopedia

Ajde Headquarters

Re: New Forum Name Suggestions Needed!! Please Suggest Them Here :-)

New names that were suggested that will NOT be included. I have also given the reasons


Anarchy Or Total Anarchy These will not be included because of the definitions below.
  1. Absence of any form of political authority.
  2. Political disorder and confusion.
  3. Absence of any cohesive principle, such as a common standard or purpose.
Analysis, Anatomy, Analogy also will not be included due to their definitions. Just because a word has ANA in it does not mean it is appropriate for the forum name.

4. Ana's Army!

5. Ana's Fairytale

Re: New Forum Name Suggestions Needed!! Please Suggest Them Here :-)

All these threads are getting annoying
Why not just put "Ana Ivanovic"

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

ANNA GERASIMOU-EIRINI GEORGATOU ALWAYS AND FOREVER

Re: New Forum Name Suggestions Needed!! Please Suggest Them Here :-)

Are you kidding? Why was the process abandoned, it was going fine, I knew this would happen again and we'd end up still being stuck with the horrid Beauty and her Beasts

A huge majority wanted that changed, just change the title to Ana Ivanovic, and we can all be happy.

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena

Re: New Forum Name Suggestions Needed!! Please Suggest Them Here :-)

What happened?

This is absolutely shameful. Myriam is doing such a fantastic job running this process and she is constantly getting dumped on. That is not cool at all. The name we have now is dreadful and needs to be changed. If everyone would stop acting like small children and realized that this a democratic process, and doesn't mean every single person is going to get there way. If we could all 100% agree on something that would be fantastic, but it's NEVER going to happen.

So please, suck it up and lets move on. Let's face it, most people here have their choices made and the new names are much of the same. One could even argue that we should hold off voting indefinitely "because, what would happen if a great name was thought of during voting," which is just plain ludicrous. We had a great process that has been in action for around 1 and a half months now and you had your chance to speak up ages ago. Don't do it now because your choice got knocked out.

Patiently waiting for ANA, MISA and DANI to start playing tennis again.

Totally agree! Why was the voting stopped??? If we wait for "good" suggestions we are never going to change the title... Myriam was doing great and the 8 finalists are all good IMO, no need to stop it now, it's senseless... The people who wants to stop now should have voiced their opinion before... and should accept the decision of the majority, there is always going to be some naysayer but that's not a reason to stop the voting (I didn't vote yet because i'm in doubt among two names, but i basically like all the titles and i find them much better than most of the names used in other subforums).

I want to add that from reading the other thread it looks like only 3 persons (Cp6uja, Sean and mure) want the voting being stopped... they all spoke a bit too late in my opinion, they should suck it up and move on.

I have no Idea why voting is stopped. All my posts when I ask for another 3-days long mini circle of new suggestions to complete final list of options is BEFORE that closed thread was transformed in Poll (when that my initiative have sense).

When voting once started of course it no point to stop whole process... especially because in less than two days over 30 members already vote. And I agree that with all weaknesses all 8 finalists is by far better solutions than current Beauty and her Beasts.

Thanks to this latest unnecessary "histerical" (overre)action of voting runner to close own thread in middle of final voting maybe whole process now seems to be in dangerous. But it is not that bad and with just two guarantee's from forum officials all tension, tiredness, fires, bad blood and suspicion will be easy gone:

1. Guarantee that whatever is happen or "complicated" at end of 2009 summer "Find New Name" process, current extremely unpopular BEAUTY AND HER BEASTS will not stay for next season.
We already vote about this in 2008 and again this summer 90% voted fans vote here against current name. 3 years for such improper name against will of big majority is more than enough.

2. Guarantee (confirmation) for every of voting Poll options that will be allowed to be New Name of this subforum if wins. No mater what is reason for "veto" We simple deserved to know, not to waste our vote (time and energy) voting for some "forbidden" option for this site. And of course information's about that should be presented before some Poll is started (so option like that will not be part of any poll at all), not only after some "unacceptable" option is close to be chosen like we have case in 2008 with "Ajde Ana!" and "Ana is Love", and same thing seems we have this year for at least one solution ("Ana is Love")


Also I notice potential problem because Voting-Poll's is public. This is not just "voting" - it is some kind of "elections" and for every type of elections "PUBLIC VOTING" option is always less democratic. After campaign and discussions are over, People should to have peace and own privacy on voting. Theory of conspiracy that "Ana haters will take control on voting results is simple BS and paranoia. I never don't have any problem with public voting, but fact is that some people are upset, especially if want to vote opposite than some of their friends...etc...

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)

Re: New Forum Name Suggestions Needed!! Please Suggest Them Here :-)

This is not an overreaction. Maybe if people had done things in a timely manner this wouldn't have happened. I chose to close the other thread because people were complaining that they didn't have enough time to discuss names and were bitching about the names that made the top eight. They were ruining the fun for the rest of us I am giving people who claimed they did not have enough time to suggest and discuss the names the time the claim they didn't get.

That way when I open the voting THREE WEEKS FROM TODAY I will not have to hear any complaining about how they didn't have enough time

I'd like to take this time to apologize to the peeps who did want this process to continue and to the people who already put their votes in. I'd also like to thank them for their encouragement and positive energy. They are the only reasons I'm seeing this through

Re: New Forum Name Suggestions Needed!! Please Suggest Them Here :-)

Just so we're clear, just because the other thread is locked does not mean the other names are out. The votes they have on the poll are not void. i've already noted who voted for what and voting for that particular set of names WILL continue three weeks from today. We are simply looking for ANOTHER set of names to vote for
