what's with the name change?
 
life and how to live it?

and the description is a little too...descriptive....




:confused:

Thrik 09-30-2003 10:16 PM

Haw Haw.

The legacy of the Harbour has finally ended. Thank god.

Das Mole 09-30-2003 10:30 PM

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?

MrManager 09-30-2003 11:46 PM

Physically it was changed by Met.

Award to whoever figures out where the name is from. ::

ATMachine 10-01-2003 12:20 AM

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.

What's in a name?..

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.

Natty 10-01-2003 04:59 AM

I think the new name is depressing.

C Shutt 10-01-2003 05:25 AM

I'm glad the Harbour's gone.

Ray Jones 10-01-2003 06:17 AM

i'm glad you will go one day c. and that is for sure. that makes me even more *looks* glader..

:D


"life and how to live it"

..

:rolleyes:

how does that shall go conform with not mi related mi discussion ??

anyway..

i'm leaving..


.. not today .. and not tomorrow. just for the sake of c shutt and mr. thrik ..
i'll never leave.. harharhar

the habor wont die because of a STUPID name change.

does anyone notice that names have no further meaning than.. NOTHING??

:dozey:

vive la.. err.. my breakfast??

Darth Groovy 10-01-2003 06:21 AM

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.

Jester 10-01-2003 07:33 AM

Pot to Kettle. Come in Kettle. "Bl-sensitive."
 
Met's a fan of REM?


Or the more obvious conclusion: Swami Vivekananda?

Yufster 10-01-2003 07:52 AM

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.

hmm.. groovy .. good point..

as long as we are here .. who will be there?

but .. who in this community wanted the name change.. (I REALLY DONT CARE.. I JUST RAISE THE QUESTION) ..???




you have to admit groovy.. THIS one is not about the community. its about that funny little admin&co-kiddies who may have done this... i'll like to say i could be seen as against this community...

oh and C Shutt.. (in case you say some) YES!! you are definitly wrong.

Branik 10-01-2003 08:47 AM

Something a little less tacky and a bit more imaginative might have been better.

Darth Groovy 10-01-2003 08:53 AM

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" ..


:)

Yufster 10-01-2003 08:59 AM

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!

Donkey Sanctuary! Donkey Sanctuary! Donkey Sanctuary!

And yeah, I was thinking about gorilla suits and maybe even giraffe suits, if I can find long enough barge poles.

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

Natty 10-01-2003 09:35 AM

I suggest the name be changed to GROG SQUAD.

Yufster 10-01-2003 09:36 AM

I resent that last post. I request it be withdrawn on the grounds that I, in fact, resent all posts.

I can practically guarantee that they won't.

NiKo 10-01-2003 09:44 AM

[edit]

Off-Topic Discussion
Discuss anything not related to Monkey Island with your fellow MI-Gamers.


would that have been so hard???
:dozey:

Yufster 10-01-2003 10:43 AM

How's about we live with it? Does it really make a difference? Does it make it harder to post? Does it really change anything at all?

Groovy, you could have at least have wore your monkey costume fo that picture......I don't find a naked pic of you very tasteful;)

Thrik 10-01-2003 11:37 AM

Btw Das Mole, if that pic is supposed to represent a Gravestone then it should be something like 2000 - 2003. :P

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.. :rolleyes: ..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.
:D

lol groovy. you are always so.. *cough*

*chokes on a bit-o-cheese*

Thrik 10-01-2003 02:07 PM

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!!!".

ptdc 10-01-2003 03:45 PM

I think it sounds a bit poncy, but it won't keep me awake at night. I'll let insomnia do that.

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

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. :rolleyes: (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.

Joshi 10-01-2003 05:35 PM

A rose by any other name would still smell as sweet.

Now kindly shut the **** up. :D

Yufster 10-01-2003 05:55 PM

Blah blah blah? Blah huckle blah!!! Blah huckle!??? Huckle-Huckle Blah Blah!!!! Huckle! Huckle of Blahs!!!! Huckle you all! I HUCKLING HATE YOU!!! THE HUCKLE-HARBOR IS MY LIFE! I'LL KILL MYSELF IF YOU HUCKLING CHANGE THE HUCKLING NAME!!!! I HAVE NO HUCKLING FRIENDS IN REAL HUCKING LIFE, AND THE HUCKLING HARBOUR IS LIKE MY HUCKLING HOME, AND I WOULD NOT CALL MY HUCKLING HOUSE "LIFE AND HOW TO HUCKING LIFE IT", YOU HUCKLERS.

That was so productive. Do you think the admins will care?

ptdc 10-01-2003 06:23 PM

You think ANYBODY cares? I know I don't.

Yufster 10-01-2003 08:03 PM

I could explain mockery, who I am mocking and why... but that would be like, a whole bunch of words.
