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.

December 12th, 2015. That feverish abomination of a "Splasch Splasch" is finally over, and so far the new contenders seem... pretty mediocre, really. Let's see what we have (as of posting time):

S.S. Ess Ess: Jesus, another military-inspired SS, and the third one in a row? Also what's with the pics? The whole American-flag-Statue-of-Liberty-bald-eagle combo? Come on. No animu girls this time though.

Peoples Equality First: Ummm what? Is this some kind of politics-y theme? I mean, I don't like politics discussions either, but a whole theme against it... I think that's a bit of a stretch. Or, if it's only supposed to be dystopian eeehhh I've seen better. :/

Splash Effect: A Mass Effect SS. As someone who's never played any ME games I don't think I should make any comments. >_>

Think Star Wars meets Star Trek as told by Bioware's awesome story team. If it were to go on sale on Steam for like, five dollars... I would buy it for everyone here.

I mean, it's from 2007, so it might look a bit dated now, but it's still a good RPG.

The KoTOR games are graphically quite dated and I still play them from time to time. Really, if there's something I don't care much about games, it's graphics.

Weeell, the level design of the first game is... Not great, to be honest. Lots of empty space.

But other than that, perfectly good series, no reason to hate.

If you can do KotOR, you love Mass Effect. There's lots of wide-open spaces, but less back-tracking (and you get a vehicle to do lots of the moving in).

Actually, I think this place is relatively mellow when it comes to politics for the most part. The internet in general tends to devolve very fast once that subject is touched, but we can usually hold an intelligent debate for at least a while. And then we take to passive-aggressive name calling.

when it comes to politics, we generally still have a debate - which is a boon unto itself. We may be heated but I don't think I've ever come out of an argument thinking less of the person I was arguing with. From the outside looking in it may seem hostile, but it really isn't. Popey sometimes gets a little rude but we can generally forgive him later.

My only advice--not catch, advice--is play as FemShep.

I also still play KotOR way too much. I guess in a community of AoE2 players it's kind of expected that they don't prioritise graphics too much. (Even though I actually find AoE2 the best looking RTS...)

so after some more research, I've found that it's entirely possible that you even if I got you a wallet code it wouldn't work because it's being used in a different country.

One option is to "add funds" to your wallet with paypal, I dunno if you've tried that. IT works for me, does it not accept paypal from your country?

Last November, Valve decided to perform a currency conversion to Steam wallets on several countries, Chile included. And because PayPal doesn't handle Chilean pesos, it was no longer possible to offer such service in Steam, causing it to be removed altogether. Now I'm stuck with Steam Wallet codes and credit cards, the latter being near-impossible to obtain if you aren't rich enough here (as in "the 1%" rich). This has made a lot of people angry, to say the least, and Volvo has yet to say anything about it. Not only that, several companies haven't yet priced their games in the store, effectively making a third of the catalogue unbuyable.

I honestly can't think of a way around my gifting you games. I'm worried that if I go to a store and buy a wallet code card and then email you the code, it still wouldn't work. I'm going to try gifting you a super cheap game, just to see if I can, because I'm worried the region stuff will block that too.

Perhaps we should stop discussing the topic, we've derailed the thread for a few too many posts

Does the thread actually have an active topic? I mean, yes, for now it did because it's the first time we're doing a handover under the new rules... but between everything being finalized and now...

This is probably going to end up more as a point to lobby complaints and concerns about SS succession. Given the chat about Steam evolved from SS succession, it's probably okay... for now. Just not for twelve pages. <_<
