Wouldn't "Koholinter" be more accurate?KrytenKoro 13:51, 24 December 2009 (UTC)

It could quite likely be in our English, but more important is what the game refers to them as. Does it have a specific name for them? User:Melchizedek/sig
None at all that I've ever seen, and I've gone through the text dump a few times. I'm basing this on Afrikaner, but there might be other options.KrytenKoro 21:01, 25 December 2009 (UTC)
Other demonyms, with applicable endings:
  • Connecticut: Connecticuter
  • Vermont: Vermonter
Oddly enough, I can't find any other demonyms for -t endings, though I'm sure they exist. But seeing as "Vermont" is almost the same ending, and it has an "-er", let's do that.KrytenKoro 22:16, 25 December 2009 (UTC)
That's looking like the best thing to do at the moment. Should get some more opinions first though. User:Melchizedek/sig 02:27, 26 December 2009 (UTC)

Creator of this category here, I had no idea what to call them when I made it. I just needed something to categorize them as. And adding anything other than s to int seemed weird to me. But I'll support whatever is agreed upon. User:Axiomist/sig 06:08, 26 December 2009 (UTC) 2 suggestions I came up with: "Kolohintites" and "Koholint Islanders" User:Axiomist/sig 17:18, 26 December 2009 (UTC)

Koholint Islanders sounds best to me, as it involves no distorting of the actual word itself. User:Melchizedek/sig 02:04, 27 December 2009 (UTC)
