While good ideas, neither of the above are the right direction.

Hints:

1. The background is not significant.
2. The answer is not eleven letters long.
3. Read the text very literally *while looking at the numbers*.

The fact that you can't have a zeroth letter is a good observation. What else to do with that zero?

Maybe eliminate the first (0), the three and the fifteen from the numbers at the bottom to get a set of eight numbers? Am I tripping? If not, then what?

Good thought. But nowhere does the text say to "eliminate". Follow the text rigidly.

Now that I've solved it, can someone tell me what the names have to do with anything?

I can't see that the people names have anything to do with it. Maybe the hint meant other names?

Tenuous name connection (some answer spoilage):

Spoiler (click to reveal)

McPana -> PacMan
Mr. Stone -> Monster

This sent me on a lengthy tangent trying to make something out of Blinky, Pinky, and Inky. But the Wikipedia page describes the things that let you eat ghosts as...well, a word similar to the answer. It may be my imagination, but that seemed intentional to me.

I know that's not the answer, but is it the solution to the first step?

Nope. I tried that path too. Try this spoiler:

There are 11 numbers at the bottom, but you know you only want 8 according the instructions above. So the question is, what do you do to the other three?

Two minutes later, I just guess an answer, and in case you're wondering, no, these letters are completely meaningless.

Do Roman numerals play a part in this? I'm drawing the biggest blank I've had in a long time. I'm definitely missing my "A Ha" moment...

Oh MYLANTA. I just figured it out. It's freaking brilliant. And so simple. Just incredible. Hardest puzzle I've seen at Tanga, and absolutely one of the most brilliant.

Thanks to everyone for the help. I feel dumber than a bag of hammers for not seeing it before, but MAN what a great puzzle.

Put it in [ o ] and [ /o ]. Except don't use extra spaces.

MAJOR spoiler for those who need extra salt.

Warning, do not read this is you don't want serious help with the answer

[o]think of a bunny that plays a drum, then shorten it to 8 letters
