Poll:

Who thinks this should be the new forums name, instead of Delete Me.

(Keep in mind, this is not official. This is just a poll/thread from a forumite, trying to make the world a better place)

Just about anything is better than Delete Me!. Besides the Respect thing describes our forum pretty well. :D

These name change threads have proven time and time again to only be a hopeless waste of time, energy, effort and bandwidth. Give up already. Nobody is paying attention anymore. :rolleyes:

You should treat a new guy with respect in that, they dont know whats going on and stuff, so they shouldnt be kicked down while weak.
But respect as in admiration is earnt.
And of course if a noob is being an arse, then no respect to them.

Joshi

Respect?! You can't handle respect! No respect handler you! I defy your respect handling abilities!

On a different note, this is not official and shall not in anyway sway the name of this forum.
Long Live this screwed up community of Delete Me!

(Bunch o screwy screwersons)

Oh don't get me wrong, I would like to see a name change as much as the next guy, but what I am saying is that these threads do not get the forum names changed, so basically this thread is just spam. No good can come from it.

Ray Jones
01-06-2004, 09:09 PM
of course .. those threads never gonna be like "hey. poll! what's the new name? .. *name changed*"
perhabs are threads like this never going to result in a changed name.. but it is still a poll and therefore one of the ways to graph a puplic opinion.

and perhabs remi runs out of ideas one day and rereads all those threads.. i mean there were some good suggestions already..


:dozey:

but we both know this is never gonna happen.. at the end he will name it 100% cotton..

I don't mind it if it was "Delete Me!", or "Respect is Earnt, so Shut Up" or "The Harbor"/"The Habour", whatever.
Any of them is ok for me, they are all good.
So I respectively cannot vote.

Though, I'm still wuite attached to that "Domain of Sukato Kjølen" type idea that was thrown out earlier. :D

I mean, come on, if we did change it to that EVERYONE would love it and think it was pretty cool. XD

No, but I did find out that I should not get Fura-Zone on my bare hands becasue it CAUSES cancer. But I didn't have any rubber gloves so I did anyway. I tried using gauze pads, but it goes through them. Fura-Zone is wound dressing for horses and cattle, by the way.

Skinkie
01-08-2004, 03:55 AM
The real question here is does it also cause cancer in the horses and cattle?

Respect IS earned!!!
Those whippersnappers coming from all angles with their high fis, their boob chubes, and their instant pizza pie.
Ahem.

I care lttle for the name, but I do think something should be done to put the upstarts in their place.

I earned my respect, didn't I....

Oh.... I made myself sad...... :cry6:

I want it back to The Harbor. I think it's mean spirited to call this forum Delete Me! and even more mean spirited writing the current description of it. I don't care who says, "It's just a joke!" because that may be so...but it's certainly a passive agressive one.

How about:

The Harbor

Pull up a bar stool and talk about anything you like!




I'd also like to point out that this is the most posted-in and visited forum on the Monkey Island boards...and it deserves a respectful title.


That's my piece of mind, anyway.

Yufster
01-21-2004, 08:21 PM
Hey yeah, next time Tim Schafer or Jonathan Ackley visit this place, they might be all like, "Hey, I'll talk to all those fellas down at the MI Forums! Hang on. Wait. 'Delete me'? These aren't Monkey Island forums at all! I'VE BEEN MISLED. Is it the end of the world!?"

And then they'll explode and it'll all be because of 'delete me'.

Ray Jones
01-21-2004, 08:24 PM

Mr Flibble
01-21-2004, 10:42 PM
I mean, DELETE ME.

Who ON EARTH thought of that.
they should be lined up against a wall and shot.

(and I know ONE person can't be lined up.I'm tired)

It sounds like an error of judgement, like someone has asked
"Whats the name of the forum"

And someone clicks edit by mistake, and they see DELETE ME! at the top, so they think its the name.
Its probably true.

Even "Mr Flibbe's Nonsense Emporium" would be better.

Of course. In a reaction to the forum members' complaints about the rediculous closing of topics that took place not too long ago...

Well in that case, well done! You've won the Pocelain Kewpie Doll!

That is true. But let's say your given name was Halatosis Lyke SkunkButt. Kinda of a stinky name, huh (no pun intended :P)? It wouldn't change you internally, but I'm pretty sure you wouldn't mind changing your name to something like Alan Smith or Fred Connors.


And, for the record, I don't think either side of the debate in this thread was being anal. If it remains that way, then let there be thread.

You sick person you. Actually I typed in second hand and then just wanted something completely random. I was gonna say parsnip, but that's been coming up way to much in conversations with friends lately, so I won't.

So, what vegetable do you most resemble? (was the conversation I was having with my friend, we're both very depressed because we're the only people on earth who don't resemble vegetables)

Okay, so there's this Artichoke, right? And he's sittin in this bar, all alone, drinking his butt off. He's so miserable and lonely, no one has ever loved him in his life, because he's an Artichoke. Anyway, this hot lookin Tomato walks in, right? Total knockout. I'm talkin gorgeous, ripe, round, red tomato. Beautiful, right? Well as the Artichoke is thinkin to himself "Oh man, she'd never go for a guy like me", the two Potatoes in the back are saying to themselves "Oh yeah, she's mine. I'm gonna tap that" and being very disrespectful on the whole. At any rate, the hot momma Tomato sits down next to the Artichoke, right? And the Artichoke's heart is pounding (hehehe, get it?) he's so nervous. He's freakin' out! But whadya know? They hit it off! Yeah, that's right! Lonely ol' Artichoke is flirting with the Tomato! The Potatoes in the back are like "Whaaa??" as the Tomato gives the Artichoke her number. Well, she ups and leaves and the Artichoke is left there on Cloud 9, feelin' like a hundred bucks. Anyway, the Potatoes, in a violent fury, grab ol' Arty and take him outside. There, on the sidewalk, they beat him till he's unconscious. The Potatoes flee and a Carrot walks by. Carrot goes "Oh no!" and rushes Arty to the hospital. The Carrot is in the waiting room for hours upon hours, and finally the Doctor comes out and approaches him. The Carrot goes, "Doc! Doc! Is he gonna be alright? How's his condition? Is he alive?" The doctor puts on a somber face and says to the Carrot, "Well, he is alive but...well, I'm afraid he'll be a vegetable for the rest of his life."

That would be funny if you hasn't misread my thread. I said me and this girl are the only ones in the world who don't look like vegetables. We can normally look at a person and say straight off which vegetable they most look like, but when we look at each other... well she can't see a vegetable and I just keep seeing stars :D

What if vegetables told eachother to shut up? You could never open a stalk of corn.
Therefore you couldnt eat corn. Then you could have corn in your crap. Then there will be no corn crap jokes. If there were no corn crap jokes, then there would be no Austin Powers 2, becasue the entire movie was based around that one line "I've got corn in my crap bigger than him!"
