The voting was started with post #148 (http://www.tennisforum.com/showpost.php?p=15824250&postcount=148). THE RULE OF VOTE: Give +2 and +1 to your two favourite new names for JJ forum, from the list bellow. The list of proposed new names is:

The Drama Department
JJ's Drama Department
Jelena's Clinic
The JJ Clinic
~ ♥ JJ ♥ ~
The Serbian Wall ... with at-ti-tude
GOAT Drama Club
The Wall with Attitude

[As you know, the current name of the forum is Jelena Jankovic.

Since polls with name options failed we need to first determine whether posters are for the change or not and we'll go from there. That's why this is a simple yes or no poll. But...

Considering these kinds of threads often create controversy, the poll will be made public and some rules will be set.

The rules:

1.No haters' votes will be accepted!
Fans and supporters are encouraged to vote no matter if they regularly post in this forum or not.
2.You need to post in this thread so your vote can be accepted!
It would be nice of you to give a reason for the way you voted, as well (or at least agree with someone else's reason(s)).
3.Change of the forum name will require minimum of 60% of YES votes!
Majority decides.

The poll will be closed after 15 days!]

@ Adrian1092, rules say you have to post in this thread so your vote can be accepted. I see you have Ana in your signature. Are you Jelena supporter as well? http://www.buzzjack.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/kink.gif

Also there is no reason we can't come up with another simple name, but not as simple as Jelena Jankovic. :shrug:

Completely against it with a passion. How many more times do we have to have this? The best thing about Jelena is she's so natural. If you really must - then I hope to God we at least keep it nice and simple like JJ or Jelena's World - something tasteful and close to what Jelena is familiar with.

I don't know why we can't respect what Jelena herself said she wanted this forum called when she was asked what she would like when we had this some two to three years ago before on this subject. And that was just as it is now - her name.

Jelena apparently changed her mind about what she'd like, from liking Serbian Diva to suddenly not liking it (which interestingly coincided with Serbian Diva leading the vote ;))

I'd like to think though that her first reaction is what would hold true now - that she doesn't care what her forum is named so long as her fans like it. And isn't that what really matters, considering we're the ones using it?

:) You also forgot the most important. point.. she doesn't respect us.. you heard me right...

Does she ever respect the fact that we've got to study for our exams, or that we have to go to bed or that we have to be up early the next day.. oh no, she doesn't give us an easy straight-set win.. there's always some picnic or drama going on...If JJ can't keep it simple and easy.. maybe we shouldn't either...:p

Well, what's going on with this poll? Are we going to change the name of this forum or not?

дalex
May 13th, 2009, 11:21 AM
Yeah... In theory we should start the process now. Me thinks that instead of having multiple choice poll for a new name, we should just post suggestions here and once there is a proposed new name that majority in here feels happy with, then we should start a poll with two options:

1. Proposed new name "????"
2. No change - Jelena Jankovic it is!

And the majority will decide (over 60% again).

What do you think?

Wrekin
May 13th, 2009, 11:37 AM
How are you going to choose the 'Proposed new name' ?

Another poll (once suggestions are in) ?

дalex
May 13th, 2009, 11:51 AM
Well yeah... or, you know, whatever you want me to do. :angel:

But since there aren't that many people voting, some selection of the names (that will be poll options) needs to be made right here in this thread...

Dunno how we'll do that, though... :lol:

edit. You should post suggestions on how this process should go, too. :lol:

OK. This isn't helping :lol:.

To get anywhere, you'll have to drive this through.

Round up the suggestions so far, have a short deadline on any new ones, and then get people to post their preferences (up to 3) (plus dislikes). With luck you'll get a clear front runner.

Snex
May 13th, 2009, 12:07 PM
We could make proposals here, and then you could make a list of proposals (similar to pick thread lists). Then we can vote in this thread, and choose one of them. Finally, if 60% of posters accept one name we should rename it. :shrug:

дalex
May 13th, 2009, 12:13 PM
I'm so tired already. :lol:

As I said, everyone post suggestions whether they're new or already been posted in another thread on this issue. DISCUSS the names so we can see what's the general feel about the proposed names. Eventually we'll create a system to filter the names (could be what Ken and Snezana propose but it's too early for that decision now). OK? Ok, that's settled. :angel:

Now post and discuss!

~ ♥ JJ ♥ ~

That sounds simple enough for our Queen of heart, but, i am sure under this court drama, she is simple girl!

"Jelena Svet" perharps? :shrug:
"Queen of heart" maybe? :scratch:

I saw a great icon of JJ from somebody on livejournal one day that was called "queen of heart", and it was a really pretty one, and fitted her.

But yeah, i like ~ ♥ JJ ♥ ~ :)

It might be fun for you guys to see it on your comments, but to includ it in the forum title, that's anothing story!

Nobody has given me an explanation yet, i not going to change my mind about not including it in the title, but at the end, i am not the one taking decision. Give me at least a reason to cope with it if it ever happen.

I can also tell you that having a sens of humour is good, but good enough to includ it in A TITLE??? come on!!! JJ might smile if she ever see it, but to what extent she will likes it? No sure she would!

AS you know, i am new here, and, i still have to accept the fact that she is indeed a GOAT. :p Or is she really? I've been following for year, sometime closely, sometime not, but the main point is that i can see is a woman with a heart of gold.

There is nothing wrong with being The GOAT. For example, Michael Jordan is the basketball GOAT, Eric Cantona - Football GOAT :angel: , Federer could become the GOAT, it's just short of Greatest of all time. Jelena is our GOAT, but it doesn't have to be part of this forum's name.

It's an acronym for Greatest Of All Time.
It's used a lot. Nothing to do with four-legged cantankerous animals. ;)

So different from the definition we have here in French... *blushes a lot* If you knew, you'd understand. It is a shame i didn't know because, i am a translator in my everyday life!

I'm thinking to start the voting process tomorrow and that we should have the new name by Wimbledon. All the proposed names will start with zero points and posters will vote for the two names they like the most by giving them 2 and 1 points respectively. The two names that end with most points will go into final poll. That OK?

If someone wants to withdraw his or hers proposed name from the competition, or make any changes to it, or add new one - should do it today.

I've been thinking about that, but the point of this whole process is to get a new name for the forum. People who didn't want the change had the option to vote for no change in the original poll of this thread. And obviously people had the chance to suggest the new name. If they don't like these names, well, they should have suggested some names they'd like better, no?

I think I've been very careful during this whole process. I urged people to suggest names and this is what we all came up with. I think that the names are not too "flashy" and that they fit JJ very well. I hope we'll get the new name and that the majority of the posters will vote in the final poll next week. And the majority will choose the new name. I think that's fair.

But, as always, I'm open for suggestions. No one but you Ken seem to care to help me with their suggestions, so I just assume they're fine with everything. :lol:
