nooo!! all of the good times took place in the harbor:

http://hometown.aol.com/garchie90/im...e%20harbor.gif

now they're going to take place in life and how to live it.


that sounds really awkward.

who changed it to "life and how to live it" anyway?

Physically it was changed by Met.

Award to whoever figures out where the name is from.

While a name change is perhaps in order, I think something less saccharine would be more fitting for a forum about pirates.

Maybe "The Scoundrels' Cove" or some such. I don't know.

Question What's in a name?..

Quote:
Life and how to live it
Discuss anything not related to Monkey Island in here. Cussing out mods should be directed to the Feedback forum.
Interesting. Very interesting.
I logged in tonight, opened up my "User CP" and thought to myself "What the hell?!? That's odd... I pretty sure I never subscribed to a "Life and how to live it" forum. Who did this,.. and what happened to the Harbor?"
Sure enough,.. both phenomina are connected. Curious timing.

(Nice choice of intro blurb, also. I approve. )

Oh well. Change is inevitable... But I suspect everyone will always still refer to it as the Harbor anyway.

What difference does a name change make? The look is still the same right? The forum is still in the same spot, right? All the threads are still in the forum right? If they had named it Mount Pleasant, I could care less...

Is it not about the people who populate the community?

You are all too sensitive.

Like one in every five new threads started is "What should I do" or "I'm so sad" or whatever. So that said, I think the name change is pretty relevant. And with THAT said, I also think we should all take part in an internet musical.

What you guys should do, is go to the feedback forums, and KINDLY start a thread with name suggestions. I'd imagine if you all agreed on something new and creative, they may listen to you.

Remember to be nice about it though.

nah. "they" never listened before and "they" never will do.

otherwise "they" would have asked us or started a thread by themselfes..

plus .. "WE" (i mean us.. errr me all ) are always as nice as others are to "us" ..

NO! How DARE you suggest I be nice! How DARE you!??? If you don't EMMEDIATELY, or possibly IMMEDIATELY, I don't know WHICH, RENAME this place, "The DONKEY Sactuary", I will LEAVE this place FOREVER. And THEN'LL you'll be really SORRY, and WISH I'd come BACK, but I WON'T. Ha Ha HA!

Well actually "Donkey Sanctuary" sounds pretty good. At least it's better than "Life and how to live it"

yeah yufster.. thats my point..

but then again.. why change it if it's so irrelevant? they tried closing, they tried moving, they tried everything and now its a name change.

again. as roy mentioned.. they and us. their game. sitting behind the mons peeing their pants because they think it is apropriate and all that.. ..plus they are so happy that someone went and posted a thread like this. and the ssadiggers can now say "Yay. Thats what i was waiting for" and the community wonders what the hell is going on. until they "forgot" about it all.

again. we will take it. everyone will take it. as usual.

history repeats itself.

lets wait for the next week or so ..
what gonna be happen? someone disables the quote button??

i dont care what this forum is named..
but i do care WHY it is named like it is named. .. and who did it. but obviosly it is not my JOB. so i just dont care.

now die confused.

Seriously RayJones, with lack of better words - shut your face. Wow, the name of the Harbour has been changed. Why does it even matter? It was changed because the people who run the forum decided so, not to spite you or piss you off. In fact, you shouldn't flatter yourself by thinking that they give a **** about how it affects you personally.

Jesus, I dread to think how you get on in the real world. "Hey boss, you reorganised my desk! You think you're so better than me!! Screw you man!!!".

seriously you lollypoop.. please dont tell me to shut face. or i kindly may ask you to chew on a prick.. preferable your own

i organize my desk by my own and .. why should my "boss" reorganize my desk?? he would have better things to do..
is that the world YOU live in? DESKTOP REORGs? haha. desktops.. you spoot. i develop software n db's n stuff and dont need to ask anyone about anything.. .. err.. wait.. there is one thing. i have to ask for vacation. (i am sooo veracious.. )

and i think i said i dont care about the namechange plus i dont think they thought about me by this decision. this never was my point. and i dont care much if anybody cares.

really thrik. who cares if anyone thinks he is better than any other? i dont care about you, shut nor anybody else in "your" posse. youre all just lousy spoots. pah.

seriously. LEARN TO RELAX. get a drink. take a cookie. and my opinion.
