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:wavey:

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:wavey:

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.

Absence of any form of political authority.
Political disorder and confusion.
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.;)

VOTING IS OVER!

ANA IN WONDERLAND WINS POLL 1!! CONGRATS:bigclap:



1. Ana In Wonderland 7

2. The Ivanovic Institute 3

3. Ana's Court 2

4. Ana's Wonderland 1

5. Ana's Fairytale 1

7. Ajde Headquarters 1

8. Kingdom Of Ajde! 1

9. Ana Ivanovic, The One And Only! 1

Since we only need ten names for the poll next week, I will be the tiebreaker.

I think we should eliminate Ana's Wonderland as the majority here prefer Ana In Wonderland:) So the top ten are the following:

2. The Ivanovic Institute!

3. Ana's Court !

4. Ana's Army!

5. Ana's Fairytale

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.

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.

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 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...

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:hug:

Balltossovic
Aug 7th, 2009, 12:18 AM
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:)

Balltossovic
Aug 7th, 2009, 12:53 AM
The OP has been updated with the new rules:)

Cp6uja
Aug 7th, 2009, 10:52 AM
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:)Closing final Poll in middle of voting and creating bizzare Election System like this will not help us at all. We should chose New Name in week before US Open... not to waste our attention for this "problem" during most important tennis event of 2nd half of season. Changing voting rules so often and radical during voting process is always best way just to confuse people and make them sick of all this :shrug:.

BTW You close that Poll (without reason) when about 35 voters already vote - so how many New Voters after all this confusion you expect to see in that new poll??? Probably less than 10 and only way to Anapolis be overtaken is if all of them vote for "Ana is Love" which is pretty impossible. So if You want to changing voting rules in direction which You present, You should just directly to promote Anapolis like 1st superfinalists and say that in this thread (which will be transformed in Poll later) we will find that 2nd superfinalist. If You fear that somebody will accuse You that this procedure is unfair to supporters of "Ana is Love" solutions which have some (more in theory) chances to beat "Anapolis" in that poll - just un-close that Poll-thread and notice in Title fact that thread is open again and voting is still continue (for next couple days) :shrug:

For this thread I don't see point now to be long three weeks just for discussions and spend all time before US Open starts. Thread is already started with about 20 new options which is not included in previous July process where voting process is started in last week of July, so one extra week for some extra nominations and disqualifications of options which not deserve to be included in poll (b/c luck of support) will be enough. So after Cincinnati week we will be ready for this 2nd semifinal Poll (to chose 2nd superfinalist) during next "Toronto week".

Superfinal Poll thread between Anapolis and winner of this thread should be organized in that week before US Open, and USO should be first tournament ever with Ana Ivanovic Subforum new name. (US Open should be time-deadline for change, not PEAK of whole process)

Please read my arguments here and don't use again that "IGNORE PROBLEM, AND PROBLEM NOT EXIST" tactics which obviously not works well.

i was the first to say that the suggestions phase had been too short, but i also accepted that i had said it too late and didn't expect or want the voting process to be suspended. but now that it did happen the worst thing we can do is complain again.i see that a lot of work has already been invested in this thread. so, once everyone recovers from ana's latest loss we should continue with this.

Balltossovic
Aug 7th, 2009, 09:36 PM
Here is my take on the names we have so far:)

1. Ana is Love I think this name would be great for Ana's forum. An Ana fan started it and it's become like a signature. Yes some people may use it to make fun of Ana when she loses but oter fan bases have to deal with the smae thing as well:shrug: Who gives if haters use it. They only make it more popular when they use it:lol:


2. Ajde Ana! Fantastic name I think. It's so Ana. And we all know that's Ana's favorite word:lol: I even scream AJDE! when I'm watching her matches:spit:


3. Ana Ivanovic If I didn't know we were capable of coming up with something better, this name would be fine. But the other names are more unique and clever:shrug:


4. Anapolis THE perfect name for Ana's forum IMHO. It means Ana's City so you can't really get much better than that:shrug: But I think it should be AnaPolis:unsure:

5. The Anapolis I don't like this name because it makes no sense to put the in front of Anapolis. City names don't often have "The" in front of them:shrug:


6. Ana's Villa of Excitement I personally love this name:lol: The Cyprot fans however have brought up the disturbing fact that it means "Ana's D!ck Of Excitement" So I've left it alone:lol:


7. Anamania This is too simple. I'd actually prefer AnaManiacs


8. fANAtics I like the way it sounds but I don't like they way it looks:unsure:

Balltossovic
Aug 7th, 2009, 09:43 PM
Ana's Haven

Ana's Asylum This is the only one I really love out of the newly suggested names:lol: I think it describes how Ana is making us feel right now perfectly. I'm not sure if it will be appropriate two or three years from now:unsure:

sANAtarium

AnaManiacs

The Ivanovic Insitute

Ana's Army

Bubble & Squeak

Ana's Court I LOVE this name! I think it's simple and logical!


The Ivanovicopedia Very clever:lol: This could span some ideas. Maybe there could be an actual thread with this title and we could just make up words with definitions that pertain to Ana:spit:
I really have no opinions on the rest of the names:shrug:

Ajde Headquarters

Kingdom of Ajde!

Ana's Labyrinth

Ivanovic Mania

I don't really understand how cp6uja managed to sabotage the whole thing with 500 word essays every other post, everyone else was fine with the process and I think you've done a great job Myr. :)

It seemed pretty clear from both voting methods that Anapolis was the runaway winner, even though I prefered Ana is Love myself. Going through another month of this when we'll most likely get the same result back seems a little pointless, but I guess we're in for the ride.


Anyway, with the help of a rhyming dictionary I came up with Ana Montana, marijuANA, and indiANA MOANS :lol: but none are really suitable.

Agreed. Let's just be positive and try our best now. Myr is doing a great job and we will definitely get a name change soon.

I like Anapolis, I had even voted for it, but I think the name should be one that is a consensus. I saw people saying they hate it.. as I said about Ana is Love. I still believe the final name should be one that pleases most and at least doesn't draw hate from anyone.

I'm going to make and effort and post some suggestions. I really suck at creating names, but I'll try. For now, I think we maybe should consider some name related to the I.D.E.M.O., that genious oath someone created in the off-topic thread a while back. We could really play with it.

Sorry if this is a silly post, but I feel like I have to ask...
I think it is great some of you are such Harry Potter fans (I mean, Ana's Army, Ajde Headquarters, Kingdom of Ajde!, Ana's Labyrinth... :tape: ), but that has nothing to do with tennis, I mean, Ana's racquet is as far from magical as it can be. http://i34.tinypic.com/ff9vut.gif
Besides, I always thought "Beauty and her beasts" suite her so well, even more in these last few months (yes, read year http://i44.tinypic.com/2lvg2ma.gif). That's why I am surprised someone would find any of the suggested names even remotely as fitting and cool as the one we have now.

Balltossovic
Aug 11th, 2009, 11:42 AM
^^About 90% of the people who post here want the change:shrug:

azdaja
Aug 11th, 2009, 11:54 AM
i agree that most suggestions actually suck and i have no problem with the current name, but people want the change, so...

anyway, i'll start with my take on the names we had in the poll.

1. Ana is Love
this name would be far worse than the current one. for all the talk about how it is special to ana fans it is special only to a handful of people who were on this forum at a particular point in time and not even to all of them.

2. Ajde Ana!
this is better, but too simple. originally i didn't think the word "ajde" is so ana since it is a word used widely by many in many languages in the balkans, but by now ana is famous for it and not only on this board (thusly becoming the official ambassador of ajde :tape: ). any suggestion with "ana" in it could be done with "ajde" as well and it would still be ok (ajdemania :unsure: ).

3. Ana Ivanovic
it would be shameful if we agree only on this :o

4. Anapolis
this name is fine. can't say anything more than that, though.

5. The Anapolis
using a definite article in front of names of cities is widespread in some languages. english is not one of them.

6. Ana's Villa of Excitement
meh

7. Anamania
my suggestion, so i won't comment on it.

8. fANAtics
this is fine, but i'm not really feeling the names where you just highlight "ANA" in a word.

out of old suggestions i'm fine only with anaholics. some others can be used for inspiration, though.

So it stroke me! I thought: "Ana is just like Alice.. she lives in a Wonderland!" Alice did get through some identity crisis there and while Wonderland was a colorful place it could also get dark at times. And she had to face all kinds of challenges around until she actually wakes up! And hopefully one day Ana will wake up and play tennis again. So... what do you guys think? Is Ana's Wonderland or Ana in Wonderland good suggestions or a big no? :lol: I'm not very good at this.. :lol:

I was thinking.. seeing everybody bond together in these mourning times, with the RIP avatars.. that we could even call the forum Passing times or Ana RIP.. how depressing! :sobbing: But then I remebered how Ana is probably still like Astute Leaner, seeing rainbows and flowers and little cute animals.. and sunshine and sugar. So it stroke me! I thought: "Ana is just like Alice.. she lives in a Wonderland!" Alice did get through some identity crisis there and while Wonderland was a colorful place it could also get dark at times. And she had to face all kinds of challenges around until she actually wakes up! And hopefully one day Ana will wake up and play tennis again. So... what do you guys think? Is Ana's Wonderland or Ana in Wonderland good suggestions or a big no? :lol: I'm not very good at this.. :lol:
"Ana In Wonderland" get's my vote:yeah:

Ana's Wonderland is more appropriate though, because the forum is a place so it's the Wonderland...

or

Guys please chose ten names from the suggestions we have in the 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:)

Out of this thread, if we were doing the +2/-2 still id only give positives to these three..

Ana's Asylum
Ana In Wonderland

As for Anapolis, i dont think it should just be declared the winner of the other thread, since voting was stopped...I dont have any suggestion on what to do about it, but the process was just abruptly stopped, seems a little unfair just to make it the winner, but thats just my opinion.:)

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.

But I'm ready to vote for that... when Kleybanova finally get's own players forum. I must confess that Alisa in Wonderland sounds cool to me.

From some stupid strange reasons Fistpumpovic since start ignoring and boycotting all my ideas and suggestions about current name-change process, but because with New Name will not be named some private forum of Fistpumpovic and couple of her friends - but of all Ana Ivanovic fans here... now when Ana is out of last slam I have again time to focus about this subject and I'm really not happy when see what is happen here.

The voting is not done.. there is still a couple of other polls to be done.. and nobody is boycotting all of your ideas. Just because most people don't like Anarchy, doesn't mean people are ignoring you C6puja. And it seems the name can only be one you like, no other name is acceptable. Then why a poll in the first place? You can just change the name yourself. :o

By the way.. on another subject.. I wanted to ask you now how you feel about all of those posts of yours about Cincinnati and the USO? And criticizing whoever wasn't feeling positive? Everything has been like a nightmare, and unfortunately we just can't hide.

Of course that big mistakes in procedure, actions, decisions, timing...etc... will confuse people and make them demotivated, sick and tired of whole process. Just because You (and Fistpumpovic of course) push and support last month Anapolis and this month Ana in Wonderland which both "wins" don't means that all is perfect. Process is damaged and corrupted by many wrong decisions and actions, but I hope that fact that "Beauty and her Beasts" is worst Players Subforum name in history of WTAWorld/TennisForum site will help people here to not give-up and finish this job (even if final result will be some mediocre solution, but not that bad like current one).

BTW... this is not subject of this thread... but please quote any of my post here (or from GM) where I say something nice about Ana result in Cincinnati or at US Open or attack anybody for criticize her. But there is big difference between talking about big and deep crisis and slump, and for example talking about some 21 year old girl that she is over for (elite) tennis forever or overact on her career current big problems (when she needs IMO our biggest support than ever) with some actions like that "R.I.P." where You are so proudly IN - sorry, but for me that is disgusting, and simple wrong way.

We went through the voting process again to get these names which we are voting on now. Everyone has been given equal say in which names are chosen, and there has been plenty of time for suggesting them.How You even dare to connect me with this mess and any of Fistpumpovic decisions? Actions like this should be started and finished during "off-seasons" and of course that during most intensive part of 2nd half of season (US Open + 2 biggest USO series events) People simple don't give sh*t about this even if they interested to see change (I know from my case). When all that make sense, during summer of-season before final-Poll when all here is focused, involved and motivated... Yes... I asked for just three extra days of discussion and new suggestions, just to complete list of final suggestion from 8 to 10, because less than week which we have before first vote is started is not been enough and fair. On "Ahminedjad" way she ignored that arguments and started with voting in final poll, which she shockingly closed after just 2 days without any reason (if voting is started) making fool of all who vote and confusing people with changing rule during process. With confusing actions and b/c Ignoring arguments about possible problems or take them personally instead rationally we have what we have in this thread, where Fistpumpovic mostly discuss with herself and not even she enjoyed in that "discussion" :shrug:

But all discussion now when all is over is useless so instead that I want to focus now on our upcoming actions about this subforum Name Change.


We have now couple solutions:

#1 To create final poll between Anapolis and Ana in Wonderland (that is what Fistpumpovic want If I understand her correctly)
#2 To create final poll between all names suggestions from past which ever got here more than 5 votes support in any of some voting polls here before (that will be include: Ana is Love, Ajde Ana!, Anapolis, Ana In Wonderland, Beauty and her Beasts) and chose final decision in superfinal poll between two with most votes out of this 5
#3 To prolong whole process for another extra phase (for example in next two weeks, or two weeks right after two Asian tournaments when starts "off-season" for Ana) and include most popular option(s) of that extra-part in final decision with other this summer "winners" (in both cases final decision will be in first week of october)
#4 To suspend temporary whole change-name process till we not find some kind of consensus. In that case I will insist again that we should to reset current extremely unpopular Forum Name (and used Ana Ivanovic Name/Surname default solution). Also, in that case we should start and finish Newest New-Name change process during official WTA off-season (November and December) and finish with this once forever. Also, this temporary solution #4 should be used if we also chose #1, #2 or #3 scenario, but winners option in superfinal poll (with final 2 options) make less than 15 votes in support!
#5 To stay with Beauty and her Beasts. For me that is only unacceptaple solution and no way that 3rd year in the row we will use so wrong name for our favorite player forum against will of big majority of Ana Ivanovic fans.

I don't see any wrong in the process. Everybody contributed with opinions.. we had as many polls and votes as we could.. anyone was allowed to express discontent and when that happened voting was stopped to make room for more suggestions. What more do you want from this process? I can only see your dislike because your suggestions don't seem to please anyone.

As for the rest of your post, I'll quote it in the WTF? is wrong with Ana thread and reply.

I think it is probably you with a problem understanding a simple message, by the way *dead*If You trying to troll this "WHAT WE SHOULD TO DO NOW" current discussion here with trash-talking tactics I will not help You.

So I will back focus on subject and repeat my analysis about now possible scenarios:
We have now couple solutions:

#1 To create final poll between Anapolis and Ana in Wonderland (that is what Fistpumpovic want If I understand her correctly)
#2 To create final poll between all names suggestions from past which ever got here more than 5 votes support in any of some voting polls here before (that will be include: Ana is Love, Ajde Ana!, Anapolis, Ana In Wonderland, Beauty and her Beasts) and chose final decision in superfinal poll between two with most votes out of this 5

Also, in that case we should start and finish Newest New-Name change process during official WTA off-season (November and December) and finish with this once forever.

#5 To stay with Beauty and her Beasts. For me that is only unacceptaple solution and no way that 3rd year in the row we will use so wrong name for our favorite player forum against will of big majority of Ana Ivanovic fans.

BTW if only I see that we have some problem with this process... great... that means we should use #1 scenario out of this 5 and simple finish with this. Or maybe Fistpumpovic (and R.I.P. lobby :p) has some radically new plan. I hope it's not include suggestion to site administration to (re)move Ana Ivanovic Subforum from Players Forums > Serbian Sensations to that "special" Blast from the Past site section for former players :confused:
