#monkey-island is NOT representative of the overall Monkey Island fan community. If you can't get interest there, it's probably because there aren't really that many new people. The folks there have been there for years (bless their hearts). This forum is probably a better way to get interest (and communicate between staff members ¬).
I don't talk a lot on #monkey-island, really, but I am interested in the clan and that's why I posted on the forum.
