We have problem with Ana Ivanovic forum name. Ana got her own forum here in 2006 and very soon that forum get "Beauty and her Beasts" name. Nobody complain about that in start because Ana is still in that time just average TOP20 player more known b/c her looks than results. She is "Forum Darling" in that time, popular and nobody "hate" her, but on other hand number of WTAW members which is Ana #1 favorite player is not so big because she is still in deep shadow of other elite WTA players (in terms of tennis achievements) so "Beasts" name for our small and loyal group of Ana supporters seems very funny and good choice in that time (2006).
But already next season (2007) things is totally changed. Ana become an elite WTA player reach TOP5 and careers first GS final, many titles...etc... and "Beauty and her Beasts" become outdated. "Beauty" become useless term when "Ana" become global recognized worlds brand and when her fan basis become one of largest here "Beasts" also become pointless and no more charming name of small group of fANAtics. In 2008 Ana become more popular (real celebrity), reach #1 spot, GS title and another final... etc... so "Beauty and her Beasts" become even more outdated name for her forum here.
NAME CHANGE PROCESS
- No big surprise when in first quarter of this season at GM poll "Worse names for Player Forums?"
current name of Ana Ivanovic forum ("Beauty and her Beasts") won by far like WTAWorld/TennisForum worse forums name of all time. GM is not perfect source about that b/c many biased members and Ana haters, but that shocking poll result give me idea to check popularity of current name at Ana subforum here.
- In August when Ana have pause b/c that injury i open "Do you think we should get a name change for this forum?"
where just 9 voters (26.4%) give "NO" answer, just 2 voters (5.9%) "NOT SURE" and much more votes reach "YES" answer (23v, 67.7%) which support name change.
- Next period of Ana inactivity started in november so i started 15 days long nomination process (discussion thread) where since start two options have by far biggest support - "Ajde Ana!"
and "Ana is Love"
so in december i'm open "AJDE ANA!" or "ANA IS LOVE" - Final Voting for Ana's Forum New Name
poll which is after one week of voting (time deadline) finished TIED
(both options reach 20 votes each and 3rd "Strongly against both" option reach 9 votes).
- Moderator "Dexter
" and two other fans which all three is from clean minority which still support current (unpopular and outdated) name try to promote and present strange (and bizzare) theory that tied result between this two options dont means that both options have similar support, but that both this options is not good enough for new forums name!? On other hand i simple open new Tie-Break voting Poll where "Ajde Ana!" beat "Ana is Love". But instead to officially ask from TennisForum administration forums name change request, b/c that late requests i open today new "SUPERFINAL" Poll between current name and option which win whole nomination process (Ajde Ana!). But Superfinal Poll
is closed by "Dexter" moderator after about just 1 hour (original time-deadline for this poll is 7 days).
Ana Ivanovic forum name change request:
Current name (Beauty and her Beasts) is without doubt outdated and very unpopular between members which visiting Ana's forum and vote in all this polls (despite fact what means about that only moderator from "Serbian Sensation"), and like we see from results of that GM Poll current name is for all other members of TennisForum perfect example of bad name for some players forum, so "Beauty and her Beast" must be changed immediately
Here is three possible scenarios:
1) to be changed with "Ajde Ana!"
option which wins nominations process.
2) to be changed with "Ana Ivanovic"
till we dont have consensus about new/old name
3) to reopen again Superfinal poll between "Ajde Ana!"
and "Beauty and her Beasts"
and follow final results of that poll.
