So, you think I just have to call my monkey island site "Monkey Island"?

No, Gabez means you should call it "Another Monkey Island site". That way, we can call it by an amusing acronym, AMIS. Tee Hee!

and plus, another mnokey island site, it's kinsda a spoof, but if it's a good site, then people will just accept it as a clever name. i like it.

It doesn't mean anything, it's just amusing to say, like WOMI, TSB, or MIL.

or alternatively "amiss" which means that there's something wrong somewhere.

Oh the boundless possibilities!

Melee island is toch op zich ook een leuke naam? maar amis kan ook, ik vind dat een beetje een vage naam, maar die kan ook...

You can also call it "about monkey island" or something.

Weet ik veel, dat is wel moeilijk hoor, een naam verzinnen voor een site

Um... try to stick to English please?

Alternatively you could have Stan's Previously Owned Monkey Island Fan-site (SPOMIF!), which is a title that I thought of years ago and forgot until just now.

frederique van der wal (who is the mole) is dutch and spoke it on celeb mole hawaii, but i don't wanna get onto that topic again.

you'll know what i'm talking about if you went on the off-topic mayhem forum.

LOL sounds like Blondebeard's 'drive-thru' speaker

or Guybrush replying to Elaine


I'm for Another Monkey Island Site as a name, don't make it too unimaginative otherwise people will confuse your site with any official Lucasarts ones

You could also try "The Three Headed Monkey" or "The Second Bigest Monkey Head" althogh TSBMH doesn't sound wright either

You could nick a dead website from this list, or even better - combine two names.
