    Hello, and welcome to the HV Swimming Pools. You may be wondering, what is this now?

    Well, here's a bit of history for those of you who may not know.
    Back in 2004, Hensonville City started out as a simple dorms housing building, designed to let people room with whichever Muppets they thought would be their ideal roommates in a college-type setting. But that wasn't the only place we had to have fun back then.
    There were three threads that existed hand-in-hand with each other for water-based wackyness:
    The Bathtub Thread, started by BethC, where all you needed was just one single post posted in order to join.
    The Senior Hottub Thread, which had two areas:
    1 The Waiting Kiddie Pool, for all members who hadn't yet achieved a total of 1000 posts and gotten their Senior Member title; and
    2 The Hottub Area, for all those members who already attained their titles.
    The Dorm Pools, which served as a place for us dorm dwellers to continue the craziness.

    So what happened to these threads? Unfortunately, Muppet Central got a crowd of kids who were interested in padding their post totals with fluff/nothing posts (basic headnod/I agree/IDK one-line response-type posts) and the administrator decided to lock the Games section of our city, slashing most if not all the prominent games unless he was directly petitioned to keep them intact. Which is why nowadays, these threads require a mod-key to open them.

    Lucky you, you happen to have this member of the city's council deciding to use his mod-key to reopen the dorm pools, now known as the HV Swimming pools. For that reason, it'll only be open to registered residents of the current Hensonville roster for these first few days. However, if the residents know someone with at least 1000 posts and/or would be an acceptable addition in spite of not having the post total requirement, then go ahead and invite them, but advise said person to contact me first in order to confirm the invitation issueing them their pool pass or not.
    The reason this has to be done is because there will always be undesirable lurkers creeping around the forums, we have to protect ourselves... And I have to make sure that the people invited will play well as part of the Hensonville community, monitoring gameplay, and if needed asking them to respectfully leave should it come to that point.

    Thanks, hope you guys have fun, and here's to another great summer season.

    HV Management Team.
