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.

popey, if you unstickied the signature thread and then let it fall off the front page, but I linked it here, would that be a fitting solution? because I really don't think it's useful enough (and especially not updated enough) to warrant a sticky slot.

...Popey, I think it's you who needs to re-read. You seem to have misunderstood Carol's proposal. The intent was to unsticky Raptor the Good's Signature Thread and link it here so that we wouldn't have to unsticky the Skype thread. Both threads are unstickied right now; we'd like to have the latter back.

And what Popey said; a little "intro to TC" bit. The SS just happens to be a big part of that.

Yeah right, but I was just thinking that the people before survived without this advice, too. Also it is funny to have people asking what SS is about! Asked that myself.

Exactly. It's fun seeing how people describe SS in their own words. Do we really need a company line about it other than "This is the off-topic thread"?

ax, I know it must be hard for you to understand what it's like to come here as a new person, but please try. When you're the only one in the room who doesn't get the joke, it's intimidating. I want this to break the ice for anyone new who comes by. Splash Splash is so much more than just an off-topic thread.

The OD readme is a lengthy document in comparison. I'm hardly going around telling children that Father Christmas isn't real to sap their Christmas joy, now am I?

Wait, what? How come nobody ever told me? Aww man.

That's because OD is a bunch of self-important, pompous asshats and they were even worse when they wrote that document eleven years ago. We're not like that.

And I don't think we want to put off that kind of impression. We're the comfy corner pub, where you have a pint with your mates and break into raucous singing now and then. OD is a hole in the wall that thinks it's Grant Cardone's prime watering hole... but not him specifically because capitalism. <_<

And some of us do actually have a more recent collection of what it's like to be new here. >_>
