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.

I would like to propose a rule. "If, within an hour of the previous SS ending, there are no candidates for a follow-on SS, the forum will be punished for their laxity with a Terrible Moff Pun® Party-themed SS. This also means that Moff can also not put up a serious contender, since he was also lax in his duties. It must be of the Terrible Moff Pun Party variety so people know not to let this happen again."

Hi, I'm Kongou! Are you my admiral?
