Anyone got any ideas?

A new Monkey Island game- it would hopefully bring back a lot of the oldies like Storky and Mega and Magnus back, just to name a few. Storky and Mega being my faves. Where is that silly bird and sweet lil monkey these days? If anyone has seen em tell em I wuvs em and I send hugs n *smoochies* I really doubt someone like Magnus would want my hugs n *smoochies*

yeah, but if they brought out a new mi game, would they rename this forum, or just make another for us to conolize on. i mean, they can't just leav us with this one with the same name, as people will buy the game, play it, and then search the internet for it and so if we changed the name of this forum to the name of the next mi game, or just made another forum with it's name, then people would find it and we'd have more people.

another thing that would make this forum more interesting is if the interesting people wouldn't leave!:mad:. mentioning no names of course. ;) i eman, someone brought back that DR Zaius topic, now those (even though i wasn't around then) were the good old days when someone could just pick something oyut of the air and make it into a good topic. but not anymore, what has happened?

Well, we could bring back more cool topics if you want.

A cool thing to add to the forums would be sounds that you can send to people who piss you off,people you wanna talk to and just plain people who are on the forum.
Or some animations when you entered the harbor or stuff like that.:cool:

i don't think that would make the forums much more interesting. we need the stuff that was around before people like you or me were around (not saying it was our fault). all the older people keep bringing back topics that were really funny and i wish us newbies (i'll always be a newbie) could've been involved. i would be happy, if a year from now, we could look back at this time and think "hmm, this was the bad period when nothing happened, but then it got a lot better". so lets make something happen. this place is realy desolate at the moment, i'm sure we don't want this to continue, do we?

A bit more good humour, less spam, people posting in the right places, more visitors and all the old regulars back (at the same time instead of one by one cos they all leave)

Ahhh, melancholy...the good old days with Natty, Niko, Feral, Storken, Guybrush122, Fender andothers....back in the days when I used to be Guybrush M-T.
I wish we could get something new, infact I just sent an admin i little something so... :)

Why, of course I would Natty! :)

You don't forget a place like this too soon. There's something special about the atmosphere here. If people stopped their spamming and quit throwing in, sorry, stupid jokes, like that about the door and cheese; then maybe people wouldn't go tired of this place as quickly as they evidently do.

As for me, well I actually drop in here now and then, like every second month or so, to see if anything has happened. Usually, however, I'm dissapointed.

I don't think I'll post here often in the future either. I lack that motivation, but I'll still be dropping in now and then.
Mainly because of the afforementioned atmosphere, but also because of something that I don't think I can say about any other site on the internet: "I've actually made some friends, and met some very interesting people here".

So, bye. See you later. :)

I agree, you don't forget a place like this, and even though I'm like "yeah this place is dead I ain't comin back it's boring blah blah blah" I caaaaaaaaaaaaan't it's like a home for me here, a place to annoy and be rude to people :p

Maybe we could all write an essay on our fave forum memory/memories? Actually that's too much like school :p

Kj°len - My forum memories.

The EMI forums are like a second home to me. I came here from a not so friendly forum and was surprised by the nice people and warm welcomes. Otherwise, the other forums replies were:

"What are you talking about, dude?"

I quickly became friends with people here and changed my name from Guybrush M-T to Kj°len. The memories here felt Monkey Islandish and fun. There was always something to do and lotsa people to talk to.

Now there a a few regulars. Please come back people, if you all slowly come back the forums WILL be more fun again. Do it for the small hobo kid on the side of the forum road. :( Moi.

my forum memories:

Al bought EFMI and got stuck. He found this forum and told me.
when i joined, Grannen, NFGB, Tuna Murray (remember him? i wonder wot happened...), Natty and Bone Master were destroying some guy called Carabean Pete.
Al and I joined the fight, and after we trashed wot was rest of CP, they took us to the harbor.
By that time, niko was re-joining. A revolution happened. At first I though Niko was a bad guy, but we became friends later.
May and June i was posting much more in Clues and Hints, then i stopped, because Al and I came back to brazil, without the pc. In September i came back to the US and started posting in the harbor (more) and other forums (less).
I became full citizen, and a month or 2 passed. All was happy, but sudenly the evil master of darkness started destroying everyting, and it became clear that i was determined to save the forums and... erm... *clears throat* sorry.
After those months, we were attacked by a bunch of spammers trouble-makers. We banned them all and for some time everything became very very calm. Ppl started arguing wheter trouble makers were good for the forums, and then i decided to make the FORUM GRAPH.
i started on noverber, when the harbor got his 20000's posts birthday.

Well, do you have the graph?

Somehow, in the pit of my consiousness I had a feeling that something BIG will happen on the forums soon. I've had it awhile but just noticed it now after Al's speach the forums were lively when I came then started slowing down after the Mek insident.
Now it's slow and I know something will happen this summer. Good or Bad I don't know.

my monkewy island story.
well, it's my sisters 18th birthday. woo hoo, party. of course i'm 13 and aren't allowed into the 21 over area of the restaurant we ate at (my sis was pretending it was her 21st) and so i was picked up outside of the restaurant by my friends mum so i can stay the night at his house. unfortunately, he was out at the time at some club or sonmething and wouldn't be home for another hour, but hey, i liked his families company, so it wasn't that bad. as we got through the door, mary (my friends mother) took my coat and then sat me down at the computer and loaded and unknown game. she told me that she and her son had had a good time playing this but haven't finished it yet. she said i cold start at the beginning. and on the screen popped up the words "the secret of monkey island".
hmm, well, i've heard of monkey isalnd, but only because i'd seen it in the shops. i played it for an hour and when my friend, daniel came home, i told him i'd been playing it for an hour. to his dissmay, i hadn't even gotten into the kitchen in the scumm bbr yet. so i wasn't that good at first, this was basically my introduction to teh world of point 'n' click adventure games so you can't blame me.
but from that day on, i was hooked on monkey isalnd and any other point 'n' click lucas arts adventure game out there. after playing all but one mi game (mi2) i completeted efmi and went on the internet looking around for site devoted to it. and i found you guys, guys who were as mad about mi as me, maybe even more. and i found home. thank you very much.

Ahhh, let's face it! We need more people on this forum. I got an idea:

Let's e-mail everyone, who was here on EscapeMI before and ask them to come back. Someone should also try doing some advertising to this forum.
