SPLASH SPLASH NAUGHT: THE ARCHIVES


Welcome to the Town's Crier, AoKH's "Off-Topic" forum! Conversation on this board is not required to be related to Age of Empires II, although it sometimes is connected. This is the place for community interaction, chit-chat, witty banter and forum games.

A big part of the community is the "Splash Splash" series. These are the threads for general discussion on any subject, which is not notable enough to warrant its own thread. There will only be one "Splash Splash" thread open at any one time, and there is an established process for choosing the next thread after one reaches 2500 posts. While this was once a limitation of the forum software, it has now become a cherished tradition.

If you are new to the community, and want to begin a discussion, please consider using the search function to see if there are any existing threads that you could post in. If you are bringing up a topic that has not been discussed before, do post a new thread. If there was a previous topic thread that has since been closed, consider asking the moderators about whether it would be appropriate to restart discussion.

The AoKH community has a long-running tradition of playing the "Mafia" forum game. In order to regulate the supply of games, there is a calendar dedicated to organisation and discussion. If this interests you, please join in the discussion there.

~~~

THIS is the splash splash archives. Here you may find links to all prior splash splashes, trivia about past splash splashes, links to important events in AoKH's history, and the current (and past) rules of succession. In addition you'll find more generic Town's Crier information - such as a list of current moderators and their responsibilities, Skype Splash logistics discussion, and a list of all past splashers and trivia at the bottom.

The History of Splash Splash as a Thread:


Mooooooooo, generally considered the predecessor for splash splash as a tradition, was different from the other threads at the time (each with a specific topic, or none whatsoever) in that it was the first (long-lasting) thread which was solely for the purpose of random discussion - a middle ground between spam threads and topic threads. It was followed by chirp chirp, and finally by splash splash(continuation of moooooooooo), the first of it's name. Up to this point (and even some token splash splash threads later) the name of the thread is directly related to the host's name - cow_gone_mad posted Mooooooooo, dedkrikit posted chirp chirp, and Simfish posted splash splash(continuation of moooooooooo). One could say that all splash splashes since have been named for Simfish, but it has come to represent something more.

After Simfish's "splash splash(continuation of moooooooooo)" thread became corrupted and a large number of posts disappeared, He posted The New splash splash - The longest running splash splash of all time, for reasons we'll get to later. It was closed, originally, after 12289 posts. After this, Splash Splash: Part III is posted by Zyxomma100 (This is the first splash splash to feature roman numerals, but is not the first splash splash to start the standard format of naming.) It is also the first splash splash to follow the 2500 posts rule.

Splash Splash IV: The Legacy Continues (By Simfish) is the first modern splash splash, containing all the naming and numbering of a modern splash splash. However, this flash of modernity is not the norm for another 8 Splashes, Until Splash Splash XI: There is No Ban Button (By ax_man1) starts the traditional naming scheme.

Things continue on from here much as they do now, save for the rotation of forummers and moderators. It is not until 2008, in Splash Splash XXXVI, do we see real change - The thread is closed early by Aro, the Seraph at the time, and The New splash splash is readopted for two full years, pushing it's total post count to 23613 posts.

~~~


Splash Splash Succession Guidlines:


A 24 hour period after post 2500 is given to post and endorse threads. The previous two hosts may not host. In the event of a tie, all but the leading threads are closed. 2 hours for more endorsements of only the tied threads. After 2 hours the total endorsements for each are tallied. Continue tallying each 2 hours until one of the threads has more.

That was your error. Entrance denied. <_<

But yeah, I still say we need a 24 hour minimum wait time so everyone has a chance to post and/or endorse. Lock out whoever posted one of the last two SS.

So far I've seen two options bandied about:

1. - After post 2500 in the previous SS, there are 24 hours to post a thread and gain endorsements. After 24 hours, all threads will be locked except that with the most endorsements. In case of a tie, the first one to get another endorsement wins. The prior two hosts are banned from submitting threads.

2. - The person who gets post 2500 (except through back-to-back posts) is given first dibs at hosting the next SS. unless universally hated, their thread is the next SS. The prior two hosts are banned from submitting threads, even if they get the 2500 sigpost.

I like the first option.

Actually, I propose a modification: 24 hours from the end to put them up, plus a 24-hour judging period to gain endorsements.

yeah, true. I feel like 48 hours is a bit much. on an active day that can be upwards of 150 posts. we want to avoid splitting SS into two, which if left open long enough two discussions might get going, one in each, and then we'd need to choose one to close despite it being relatively active.

I'm agreeing that 48 total is much. But I think judging needs to be on hold for at least 24 hours. Our members are kinda localized between Central Europe and California... with Mayank as the sole outlier. I think.

Should add some of the reasoning and history behind SS's existence. Such as:

First mod approval of SS's existence:
Message From the Dark Side:

Thanks in advance for your Cooperation!

Dark Side of Day

____________________________________________________________ ___________________________

The reason why this thread exists and why it isn't in the Knights of the Round Table forum is pretty straight forward. This thread was created for the sole purpose for people to socialize with other people from the AOKH community for purposes that are not related to Age of Kings, while avoiding the different nature of KoRT. You should also be considerate and nice to everyone whom posts here, and your posts whould have reason in them, unless you are aiming for a significant post number that is being approached, but please do not aim for it unless the significant post is at most 10 posts away.

Please follow what Dark Side of Day said in this post in the paragraph above this paragraph, and other than the guidelines outlined here, then enjoy this post and have fun!

--------------------

Now, if you are wondering about the strange title of this thread; this thread was actually created following the Moooooooooooooo and chirp chirp psots at AOKH, which served a similar purpose that this current thread serves. By he way, if you are curious about these threads; they are listed below:
And the first history:
Splash Splash goes back a long time thread-wise. Let's start from the beginning...

Back, years ago, there was a newborn baby looking up at it's mom... So cute... and the first thing it said was... Moooooooooooooo. He was promptly dumped off at an Internet cafe, starting his other obsession.

Fast forward. Renowned forumer cow_gone_mad created the first in the animal sound off-topic thread series, Moooooooooooooo. It reached 7683 posts before finally being closed.

Next to come into the picture was dedkrikit. Continuing the animal sound saga, he gave it his own sound, chirp chirp. I've never seen a dead cricket chirp, but that doesn't matter. It only reached 2533 replies, but nonetheless a large thread.

Enter Tonto_Simfish. With the end of chirp chirp comes splash splash (continuation of moooooooooooooo). This new thread was close to coming to the legacy of moooooooooooooo, but the thread was corrupted at ~post 4,900, and most of the posts disappeared.

But that wasn't the end. He created a new thread, The New splash splash(continuation of moooooooooo), and this thread became part of AOKH history. It reached 12,289 posts before being closed due to a new HG regulation.
Unfortunately cow_gone_mad was departed by the time I became a forumer, so can't offer info on him, but in a way he was the first Splasher, so that should be acknowledged.

You left in the asterisk on 44 (shortest ever), but left out the note explaining it.

Also, he should be called "Simfish", as Tonto was a clan and could refer to any number of people.

I probably prefer the "everyone gets a turn" format with the last poster in the previous SS having the priority (if he hasn't posted an SS recently). Gets us a nice amount of variation without the competition.

1. - After post 2500 in the previous SS, there are 24 hours to post a thread and gain endorsements. After 24 hours, all threads will be locked except that with the most endorsements. In case of a tie, the first one to get another endorsement wins. The prior two hosts are banned from submitting threads.
This seems good to me, but with a couple changes;

-24 hours seems excessive. After about 12 hours, most people will have had their chance to at the very least give a quick "This one!"-endorsement.

-That said, I'm really not a fan of this "sudden death" business. That's one of the main reasons why this went rather sour. I'd much prefer to extend the timer by a couple hours in the case of a tie, and then count again. A minor change, but one that makes the process much more fair, IMHO.
2. - The person who gets post 2500 (except through back-to-back posts) is given first dibs at hosting the next SS. unless universally hated, their thread is the next SS. The prior two hosts are banned from submitting threads, even if they get the 2500 sigpost.
This one's a no-go for me. Firstly because it means the same few posters always win (some have a faster internet connection and an itchier reply finger than others). Secondly because it gives said 2500th poster a carte-blanche to make their SS as shitty as they want ("universally hated" is very vague).

that.

personally I think that the second option is bad.

sipia's timer extension instead of sudden death imo is fine.

Say all other threads are closed and the two remaining have another 6-12 hours?

I support 24 hours. Although it's an excessive amount of time, we have to accommodate the timezones fairly. I think that people should be able to retract support for a thread if a later thread is posted after their original support.

I changed the title and OP because "naught" means nothing, and "nought" means zero.

google says that "Nought" is only a variant spelling of "Naught"
