Replace AHD[edit]

  • Voting on: Replacing the name of our AHD pronunciation system with a new initialism. We have already had a preliminary vote suggesting that the initialism AHD may be misleading, but there was support for its continued use as being recognizable. This is part one of the run-off vote. This vote will determine whether we replace the current name AHD with a new one. If this proposal to change the name is accepted, the replacement name will be decided in the second part of the run-off (below).

Retain the AHD initialism
  1. Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose DAVilla 18:21, 19 February 2007 (UTC) I don't think we should be inventing acronyms that aren't understood outside of this small community. I'm all for change, but not to some new unknown initialism!


  1. Symbol abstain vote.svg Abstain H. (talk) 15:53, 19 February 2007 (UTC) I’m not a fan of the AHD system anyway, so don’t really care. As long as I know how to format it :-)
