Respect is Earnt, So Shut Up!

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.

I think it sucks.



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.

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.


I'm really Monkey-_

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!

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.

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..




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.

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.

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......


People who call me 'paranoid' are probably in on the plot.

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.


I can't seem to think up a good signature.

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'.


You might recognise me.

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...

...it's why I took a sebatical from my duties at this forum as the forum...um....okay, so it wasn't a sebatical. But you all know what I mean.

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)
