    Here's 2 more things to consider.

    1) When Elrohir mentioned it on some interview back in the early days of token findings, he ponounced it "twel-eve". Might be good to be consistent (even though that pronunciation gives me the heeby-jeebies)

    2) Maybe you could hold up a card with the web address on it when you say it?

    p.s. Make sure you mention "The Search for Bass' Gold"!

    Oh, shoot, I thought I edited that out.

    Hey, if a mod/admin wants to put in another name--your choice.

    Lizzy, I love that song!! and the movie with Ginger in it too...thought I was the only one on here that watched oldies Good idea with the 3 x 5 card. I think I'll have a whole stack of them so I won't forget anything, tv ack! And one of our newest members wives has my already short skirt going into an even shorter short short!! It's ok, it's covered with my historically correct pirate garb traveling coat...I just keep repeating, it's all for Jason, it's all for Jason...and I'll make it through!! will be nice for tweleve.org to get a plug too, though and it's for a good cause, a lot of people won't know how to get started on the hunt, so I can send them here! Who knows maybe we'll get a whole new bunch of followers too!! Ya'll got to let me know if a bunch of Louisiana people jump on board in the few days following the 21st.

    So, it's official...Twel eve' or Twel' eve?? which one? see I still don't know where to put the accent...oh no another obstacle!!

    OMG Hilda! Okay, I am flipping a coin... it's tails - put the accent on the 2nd syllable!

    Good luck to you - that is awesome!

    Old movies are my favorite. Imagine - a time when there was a dependance on plot and good characterization!

    Going back to the Elrohir consistency thing, he put the accent on the second syllable. There's no real reason that pronunciation needs to be emulated, but as long as we've come down to flipping coins, it's as good a reason as any.

    I'm late to the party, as usual, but I've always pronounced it with a short e on the second syllable... twel - evv. And with a slight accent on the first, but almost equal. That sounded close to twelve, but different, to me.

    How about just using 'twelve' ? Then register twelve.org and point it to tweleve.org.

    And if it's already taken, then never mind.

    The domain name seems to be for sale if you go there. I'm not sure how domain name resale works though.
