Nov 17th, 2008, 05:15 AM
During this summer we have discussion and poll about "Beauty and her Beasts" name of Ana forum which according to majority of discussions and poll-results is obviously outdated. Ana is simple no more another promising 18yo TOP20 girl like she did when she get separate subforum here so 2-3 years later except her famouos good looks she is also recognized like an elite tennis player, slam champion, former #1 player... Also, when she is still upcoming player "beasts" is cool and funny name for her fans when we want some attenteion for us and our Ana, but right now when Ana fan basis is one of huge here (haters basis also) we really dont need that.

So please give your oppinion or suggestions here about this subforum new name or reccomend or support some of already given suggestions. So we will discuss in this thread during november and in first week of december will be opened poll with minimum 2 (maximum 10) options about Ana forum new name since 2009.

I dont have any problem to give some suggestions or understand suggestions of other members, but understand what something means is not always enough to judge how good is some proposal because also is very important how something "sounds" on English, and my feeling about that is :p

BTW here is some new suggestions:

Ajde Ana... C'mon...

Ana "The Winner" (or Ana "The Winner" Ivanovic)

Looking for the Hero?

Ana :ange1: (or Ana :ange1: Ivanovic)

I vote for Queen Ana I.

In the Republic of Srpska "ajde Ana" means "go Ana", as in "lets go Ana".
[EDIT: ok I had to edit this sentence and use my father's definition or else he would have given me батине.]


One of the reasons I vote for Queen Ana I:
In 1992 Serbs from the Republic of Srpska were not allowed to participate in the 1992 Olympics. Anyone caught up in a devils game would not want to argue with me on this one.

Oh, I apologize Jelena its the opposite. [EDIT: I didn't deliver or perform this sentence nicely therefore I have removed the punctuation. I guess I owe her another apology.]


Hajde means "come along", as in saying the words "catch up".
[EDIT: since I am speaking with Jelencg there was no need for me to discuss someone else's production or directorship, therefore I removed the sentence. I owe Jelenacg another apology for being rough.]

"Ajde" is not a word in any dictionary. Maybe in брђански it is spelt that way. But Ana said she uses it as the equivalent to "come on" in English. [EDIT: ok another apology I owe to jelenacg for being to technically linguistic when I should have been quoting Ana's discription in her Ask Ana answers. The recent photo of Ana in belgrade made me calm down.]

i don't see why we should change the name :shrug: i am strongly against names such as "queen ana", that's just :tape: "ajde ana" is perhaps too simple (i actually think that just "ajde" would be better :unsure: ). and "puppy love" may be cute, but it comes from jj fans, so it should be rejected as a matter of principle :p if we want to get inspired by haters i'm thinking more about ana's fist pumping actually. that and "ajde" is so ana, so it would even be quite fitting.

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?

Totally agree. :worship:

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

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


My suggestion: Anaholics

azdaja
Nov 25th, 2008, 11:50 AM
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 :lol: 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.

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.:awww: Its okay though, not a big deal, no problemo,:sad: not that it matters much anyway, whatever you decide, no stressing over it or anything like that, really:sobbing:
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.

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.

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!".

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. :)

yeah, that really broke my heart :awww:

who cares what people in gm think? :rolleyes: 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.

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).

Where is now your smartass comment about "Dictator out of control" after this scandal with closed poll by moderator??? I opened August poll about forums name change because i just curious to see how popular is current name between this Ana subforum visitors b/c "Beauty and her Beasts" is known like most unliked players forum name overall (all WTAW members). If results is not so clean (68% want change, 28% want to stay current name and 6% is unsure) i will never continue this process. In nomination thread my personal favorite was "Queen Ana I", but that option simple dont have enough support in comparation with most popular "Ajde Ana!" and "Ana is Love". Out of this two i more support "Ana is Love", but after tied result in first voting, "Ajde Ana!" won Tie-Break and I'm just follow will of majority and promote "Ajde Ana!" in superfinalists. Where you see "Jihad", "Dictator out of control", "Slobodan Milosevic"???

i don't think the 2 proposed names are better than the current one, so i won't be voting for any.That Poll finished with 41% votes to "Ajde Ana!", same 41% of votes to "Ana is Love" and just 18% for "AGAINST BOTH" options so how dare You (or Dexter or dony12yo or jonnyroyale_13) which belong to that 18% minority obtrude your will against majority??? Or you maybe accuse me that i have here about 50 fake identity and members names, or i'm some hacker which hacked all this polls results? So "report" me if you really sure about that theory of conspiracy...

Translation of Your members name "AZDAJA" means "DRAGON" so i understand why you (like most powerful "Beast") love so much this current name - but many Ana fans and supporters here obviously have problem with identification with "Beasts". Of course I know about "Beauty and Beast" fairy tale, but tell me please, how can any of FEMALE Ana's fans here identify with that "Beast"? But worst thing about "Beauty and her Beasts" name is fact that this name is without "Ana" part, which is right now one of most recognized tennis brands!

:spit:

i will try it once more. you really are taking this waaaaaaay too seriously. relax, this is just a forum. there is no scandal. and note that you are still the only one who insists on name change while there are several people who are outspoken about not changing it in the way you propose. this includes people who don't necessarily think this name is great, mind. and while i like this name (and btw that's NOT because i am fond of dragon-like creatures in popular culture) i don't mind seeing another one instead. as far as i am concerned you can change it immediately back to "ana ivanovic". but i don't like the way the selection process has been going and "democracy" involves more than just starting polls and counting votes. the name change has been your project, not a collective effort from the posters in this forum.

the name change can still happen and i'm sure it will be easier to find a better one if people are more relaxed about it.

Dec 22nd, 2008, 08:58 PM
It buffles me how you can take such a silly thing as changing or not changing a forum-name soo seriously. Me neither, I can't understand who actually made you eligible to conduct all this process, which for the time being is not needed.
So, I've got an idea. Let's discuss during Xmas holidays once again this issue here. First of all if we want the name to be changed and then we could move to one more brain-storm to find new options (of course old ones are welcome too). Also before the polls, I'd like as many opinions of ACTIVE users of Ana's forum here. They're much more valuable that amount of votes in the polls (in which anybody can vote also people who have no business in coming here), which Cp6uja loves to bring up at every possible moment.
Personally I don't feel the need of changing this forumname. I kind of got used to it and the fact that it's not liked in GM, makes me like it even more. However, I'm not against having it changed at all if that's the will of people here.

As for the idea of Cp6uja of creating a thread about this issue in the bugs section... Seriously, how old are you? :tape: You come out as a kid from kindergarten who wanted to conduct the game but was denied by others and cries to the teacher. Cp6uja, take a chill-pill! :o

It buffles me how you can take such a silly thing as changing or not changing a forum-name soo seriously. Me neither, I can't understand who actually made you eligible to conduct all this process, which for the time being is not needed.I open discussion about improper and outdated forum name and poll about that. After very clean poll results of that "referendum" poll of course that i have responsibility to continue whole process. BTW proof how visitors of this forum is unhappy about current name you have in August after that 70%-30% poll, so who stopped you to take over whole process like only moderator here before 2nd half of november when i again reopen this question??? You are moderator of Serbian and Polish forum here, and thanks to Yuor inactivity Poland is only Country ever at WTAWorld/TennisForum which have at least for a week some TOP10 player in XXI century, but still dont have REAL own forum here (out of "Rest of World"), Aga Radwanska is only TOP20 player without separate forum (still must share with younger sister) and also you dont support my action about moving "Serbian Sensation" forum from bottom/midle to top of players forum, together with USA and Russians where currently belong.

So, I've got an idea. Let's discuss during Xmas holidays once again this issue here. First of all if we want the name to be changed and then we could move to one more brain-storm to find new options (of course old ones are welcome too). Also before the polls, I'd like as many opinions of ACTIVE users of Ana's forum here. They're much more valuable that amount of votes in the polls (in which anybody can vote also people who have no business in coming here), which Cp6uja loves to bring up at every possible moment.This thread is open at november 17 and two weeks later two options with biggest support is promoted... so why you thinking that two days for discussion about new/old name is better and "more democratic" solution than two weeks of discussion? All members which vote in all this polls is obviously visitors of Ana subforum and have right to say their opinion. Number of (hyper)active members here is between 5-10 but Ana is superstar and favorite player of at least 50 WTAW members and that number (about 50) is minimum number of different members which visiting this Ana forum per week.

Personally I don't feel the need of changing this forumname. I kind of got used to it and the fact that it's not liked in GM, makes me like it even more. However, I'm not against having it changed at all if that's the will of people here.You prove your open mind for changes closing Superfinal Poll after just one hour.

As for the idea of Cp6uja of creating a thread about this issue in the bugs section... Seriously, how old are you? :tape: You come out as a kid from kindergarten who wanted to conduct the game but was denied by others and cries to the teacher. Cp6uja, take a chill-pill! :oYou want example of childish action? It's when you close that final poll because is not hard to predict result... When you see results "Ajde Ana!" 20 votes, "Ana is Love" 20 votes and "Against Both" 9 votes - your conclusion is "MAJORITY IS AGAINST BOTH". That i call logic of kid from kindergarten (i really hope that you are just too biased in this case and not with big problem with IQ).

I never have problem here to complain or protest or suggest something to forums administration and even wrangle with them and "Bug/Error Reporting and Questions" is most relevant place for my question about this subject (How to change forums name when majority want that). What you expect after that yours ugly and childish move to closing superfinal poll after just one hour and make ridiculous all who vote in august referendum, give suggestions in novembers nomination thread and vote in decembers final and final tie-break? If you maybe have some problem to ask anything from administrator (like own forum for "Tennis Poland" for example) i never have that problem.

Where is now your smartass comment about "Dictator out of control" after this scandal with closed poll by moderator???
Youve lost all control. Hail to Lord Dexter:bowdown: This whole thing is going in circles, i want to respond to some things, but you have no interest in listening to the 'minorities', plus, i need to go do my dishes. Merry Christmas to you, Cp6uja,and may god have mercy on your soul.

Why don't we just have a poll 'Do you want the forum name changed?' and make it public so we can count the votes of the Ana fans and then move on from there :shrug:

we already had a poll on that, cp6uja keeps on mentioning it. i disagree with this idea. if anyone wants the name change they should present their argument as to why AND suggest something new. if we are going to change the name the question should include into what not simply if. then we can talk about proposals and about what kind of a name we want to see.

I think a poll like the one I mentioned would show whether people want to keep 'Beauty and the Beasts' or not, if people want to get rid of it, then we could suggest new names. I know that's been done already, but opinion seems to have changed since the last time a poll was made.

Personally I dislike the current name, I don't think her fans should be referred to as beasts, but I don't mind what the name is really.

Fact that majority of visitors of this forum is very unhappy with forums name is reason for change.

But then at least come with good names.
Ana is love was considered as one of the best. That should ring a bell that you can better stay with a bad name instead of make it worse.
I agree this forum sometimes looks like kindergarten, but that won't mean that you also have to name it like that.

We better leave it to the Russians. Most of them have cool names.

you can never satisfy all people. we cp6uja narrowed the proposals down to just 2 and in competition with this name none got convincing support. in competition with even more proposals the support would have probably been even smaller for individual names. and let's not even mention that the obvious option "neither" was not available in any of the polls.

we can simply change it back to "ana ivanovic" if the poll results say that people don't like this name, though. i don't mind that at all and we would have all the time in the world to choose a new name then. but replacing this name with something more awful is pointless.

Hope you don't mind me posting here (since I'm not an Ana fan; and no I didn't even think about voting in any of the polls created about this matter), but dunno why are you making all this noise about a forum name. I'm especially referring to all those posters opposing the name change by accusing Cp6uja (who's as big Ana fan as any of you) of dictatorship and what not just because he started this process and because he's continuing to argue in favor of the change.

If the name of the forum is not a big deal anyway, why not change it if majority of the visitors wants so? That was clearly the case when the first poll was created (though I agree Cp6uja should have made it public!) and now it seems that most fans are put off by all this bickering.

IMO (if anyone cares :lol:), both proposed new names are just fine and fit Ana and this forum very well (my favorite would be Ajde Ana! :fistpump:), so it's not like it would be a huge disaster to change Beauty and her Beasts.

Also, current name is offensive to me 'cos it seems to me that beauty turns into one of her beasts when she plays JJ. :lol: (just kidding, of course :p)
