An Age2oon is the Age of Kings Heaven tradition where our community takes Age of Empires II screenshots, and then crafts those screenshots into humorous, cartoon-styled comics. If you'd like to submit an Age2oon of your own, post it in this thread and we'll get it up in our Age2oons Gallery as soon as possible! Remember, it must be under 250 KB, in either JPEG, PNG or GIF format. No bitmap files please; if you would like a free BMP converter, check out IrfanView. To take a screenshot, press CTRL-F12 during the game - use the "Print Screen" key if you have the Conquerors Expansion pack - and it takes a .bmp file of your screen and saves it to your Age of Empires II directory: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires II\Screenshots

We're providing a transparent text balloon GIF that anybody is free to modify and use in their toon as a backdrop for the text! Right click on it and click "Save as" to save it onto your Desktop.


Your attractive master.

Scores sent in 'Ro, and a few of them actually made me "lol" for real, but I'll tell you which ones I personally found the funniest once all the scores are in and the winner is announced.

So Luke (despite being staff, or perhaps because of that) can call me a tool and refer to my questioning as "incessant bitching", but when I reply, my post gets deleted? Luke baited me, and that's obvious. I was formal and polite in my messages until that happened.

The thing is, you are a tool.

Even if Luke was indeed baiting you, you actually took the bait and responded with incessant bitching.

I did, and you'd see that if you could read the post Aro deleted. Besides, according to your rule, you can insult anyone without repercussion, as long as they are less witty than you.

I did read the deleted post. There were certain rules in this competition and everyone followed them. Does your rebellious teenage mind feel that you need to question authority, or do you simply enjoy being in the spotlight? Which one is it?

No need to bring out Mr. Patronising Elder here. Rebellious teenage mind? You must feel pretty cocky and superior right now. There is nothing wrong with questioning the purpose and necessity of a rule, and I'm sure you can agree with that. Can you also agree that one may be inclined to respond once one is insulted? I don't want to conflict with anyone here, but that doesn't mean I'll back down should someone initiate conflict. I haven't taken any of this personally, nor do I hold particularly strong opinions on any of these matters, just for the record. I'll also let it be known that I never had a problem with Luke or Ornlu, and I respect both of them, but I do not consider them (or anyone else here) as superiors.

If you have more to say, feel free to open a thread in Website Feedback if you like; I'll be happy to reiterate any part of our reasoning that you don't understand.
In my webmaster position, you *will* consider me your superior. I respect your position, Gwame, but in situations like these, you aren't using your head. Clearly you do not respect *me* enough to pay heed to my request; expect a warning if you decide to continue with your back-and-forth in this thread. The argument is no longer about the rules of this contest, and I have already clarified our standing on the contest rules you questioned. I'm very sick of this thread being spammed. Website Feedback, e-mail, speak with me on MSN, or drop it. Those are your options. Choose wisely.
Scores sent in 'Ro, and a few of them actually made me "lol" for real, but I'll tell you which ones I personally found the funniest once all the scores are in and the winner is announced.
Shweet. Luke sent his in too, so I should have 'em up and ready by Sunday night. ^^

Superior in terms of position on the site, and that you would be more accustomed to the rules and so on, sure, but not superior in the sense that hypothetically you could insult me and I could not insult you back because of this 'superiority'. Can you respect that?
I respect your position, Gwame, but in situations like these, you aren't using your head. Clearly you do not respect *me* enough to pay heed to my request;
Of course I respect you enough for that, but the reason why I didn't immediately stop was because you warned me and not Luke, despite him being the one who instigated it and brought the discussion/argument beyond rule questioning, and it became more personal.
Yeah, okay, we get the idea. I'm a power-hungry warmonger, all those who share my wicked view are assholes and you're the poor victim who has done absolutely nothing to deserve those repeated roundhouse-kicks to the face.

With all due respect, can you not see what you're doing? If you want to end all this, that's fine, but how do expect to do that if you keep baiting and patronising me? Can't we at least keep it civil. I don't want to spam this thread, but you have to understand that I didn't want to back down. I'll make no more personal comments or accusations from here on, provided you do the same. So for the sake of getting back on topic and stamping out petty internet disputes, how about it?
The argument is no longer about the rules of this contest, and I have already clarified our standing on the contest rules you questioned. I'm very sick of this thread being spammed. Website Feedback, e-mail, speak with me on MSN, or drop it.
True, and I'm also fed up of it, but as I said above, I don't like backing down from something. I'm fully prepared to cease all this off-topic arguing for the sake of the thread, and because it's pretty much pointless. Hopefully you can empathise and understand my viewpoint here. I may choose to discuss the situation further through one of the other means you suggested, assuming you don't mind.

This will be my last reply on the matter. I just wanted to clear everything up.
