There are a few very good Serbian players right now, so I thought it would be nice if we had a forum for them in the Rest of the World section. Maybe change Jelena Dokic's forum into the one for all of them? It's not a big deal if it can't be done, but I do think it would be a good thing.

We can easily change the name of the Dokic forum, just make sure the 'regulars' who post there agree. And suggest a name ;) Let us know...

I think it's a good idea for sure cos there is many Serbian player at the moment which do so good on the WTA and it seems kinda sad that there is no forum for Serbian players. I'm not so good to think up a name, the only thing I can think of is The Serbian Stars forum which is really bad I know, but I'm sure someone else could think up sth..?

If I will qualify as regular then from my part you have a green light.
If it's possible to create players subforums then it would be even better. :cool:

It looks like they won't mind. Just wait a bit until we come up with a good name. :)

It seems that there are mixed feelings about just renaming Dokic forum coming from "old school"...

Yeah I like that :)

Maybe if ppl aren't happy to make the Dokic forum into a forum for all the Serbs a new forum could be made and the Dokic forum could be left? But to me it seems a little sad to seperate Dokic from all the other Serbian player if you see how I mean.. :confused:

I would love a new forum for serbian players,as I love Jankovic and Ivanovic but I'm not really fond of Dokic.

**Jelica**
Dec 15th, 2004, 03:17 PM
Uhm, I'm sorry to trouble the administrators, but I was just wondering, is this gonna be possible to change the name of the forum? I'm not sure if the fans of Dokic are too happy about changing it's name, but maybe if we did what Lonely Stranger suggested and made a name such as "Jelena D and the Serbian Superstars" ? @ Dokic fans, would this be okay, or do you prefer that it's still just Jeca's forum?

If it's the case that the fans of Dokic who post on the forum "Dokic's Domain" wish that this is just Jelena Dokic's forum, would it be possible to have a new forum created for the Serbian players? (as is the case with the new forum for the Croatian players and the old Majoli forum existing seperately) I know like the administrators already have said, it's not that common for a new forum to be created just for 1 player any more, but there are more than 1 Serbian player. There is Jelena Jankovic, who is top 30 ranked now, and Ana Ivanovic, who's a big "rising star" and I think is gonna be getting really good results on the WTA next year. Also there is Vojislava Lukic who has the potential to be a top player in the future maybe. The Serbia-Montenegro Fed. Cup team should do great next year, cos they have a great group of players (especially when you include Dokic, if she's gonna play Fed. Cup) so it would be great to have a forum to talk about this.

Also, at the moment, ppl who wanna talk of the Serbian players must always post on the GM, and I think maybe ppl are getting a bit bored of there being so many "Serbian threads", lol! And this also would be remedied if there can be made forum for the Serbian players.

So, anyway, I know it's a big thing to ask, but would this be possible? I really hope so!

Thank u, and lots of love from,
Jelena

i can only repeat what i said in my first post here, for me it's no problem to broaden the dokic forum to a serbian forum, just make sure it's something a majority approves AND provide me with a name.

Jelena D and the Serbian Superstars was suggested by JJFan but several other names were also posted here so yeah... one name and it'll be changed ;)

btw, to answer JJFans question: the majoli and croatian thing must have been an error on our side forgetting that majoli is croatian or forgetting we have a majoli forum cos even if we'd make two then we'd have made majoli forum a subforum in croatian forum, blah, so yeah, we fucked up :D

Well... why don't you jsut change the name of the forum to something as neutral as Serbian Players... and in there someone can do a poll with the people that actually attends to that forum....

Sonja
Jan 4th, 2005, 01:20 AM
Because that would mean changing it twice (or more) and we prefer to have the permanent forum name before changing it.

Well Sonja if people like GoDominique who frankly speaking do not give a s**t about any of Serbian players are going to vote then is that really the best poll?

There are already 8 people there who do not like that idea. That forum will need moderator ASAP then. The fan base is rather different to.

If you Sonja really care about peace on this board then please find a way to create forum with player subforums for Serbian girls. I really don't want to log in to my fav players forum and find three's nasty posts about Dokic like he did in Jankovic thread.

And btw. Dokic true fans will probably wake up from hibernation when her season starts in february. Can you at least delay voting time until that? It would be more fair. Don't you think? :)

May I ask? Is that official wtaworld policy when larger outside group of posters determined by global poll results can take over or change any forum?

...and one other thing. It seems you have created rather recently new forum for Sveta K under Russian rulette. So it means you have technical means and knowledge how to add new forums. ;) So how about new forum called "Jelena Jankovic and other Serbian girls" under "Rest of the world" forum. Trust me! Doing so you would save us from lot of hard feelings while making happy other people. Isn't it worth considering? Please :wavey:

We can see who voted in a poll, so we'll know how valuable that result is, and tbh i'm more interested in the amount of people that wants to keep the forum like it is, than the amount of people that want it changed. Because it's always easier not to give in to a new request than to explain why something existing is changed.

Your option isn't really what i had in mind, but depending on the outcome of our recent survey, i was thinking of adding a general serbian girls and making the dokic forum a subforum of it, like we do in Belgian Babes, Russian Roulette, etc. That way we'd please everyone. But as i mentionned in a previous post, *right now* that will still depend on our survey and how those results are given to me.

I think it's cos it's Dokic's forum still..probably if u wanna cheer on Ivanovic atm, better to do it on the tournament sub forum or just in the general messages.

Btw, the poll is closed now, so will we get some feedback soon? Sorry to keep hassling about this :)
