    Here's a request to everyone:

    LLW could be Li Lingwei or Limited Lifetime Warranty or Malawi's Lilongwe Airport.
    SS could be Susi Susanti or Simon Santoso (or Super Series).

    In our posts, let's please use full names (or terms) instead of acronyms at least on the first mention.

    It's not because we cannot understand who is being referred to.
    It's because, later, when someone searches for Susi Susanti, your post won't show up to educate them.

    Is there a list of acronyms somewhere I'm missing? If not, it would be a very good idea to have one handy, since this thread seems to be permanently ignored.

    I am with Oldhand. Even though acronyms are ok, we should make an attempt to use the player's fullname.

    Thanks! I've updated the big list. It's quite handy to follow discussions when you're not acutely aware of every single entry in the tournament.
