Google Anlyticsed – Splash Texts in Minecraft

Playing Minecraft you probably have noticed yellow splash texts including “Google anlyticsed” on the screen. What are they? “Splash” texts in Minecraft are randomly chosen texts that reference pop culture.

“Google anlyticsed” splash text is a (misspelled) reference to the Google Analytics. It’s just a past-tense misspelling of Google Analytics – a service that provides statistics about visitors to a site. Google Analytics is a free web analytics service that tracks and reports website traffic, as well as lets you measure your ROI and track your networking sites and applications. Definition of analytics (analytic, analytical, analytically) is – logical analysis.

For those who want to know, there are actually hundreds of the title screen messages… Woo, tigsource! Google anlyticsed! Woo, minecraftforum! Give us Gordon! Tip your waiter! Kick it root down! Autonomous! Jason! Jason! Jason! Flaxkikare! I miss ADOM! 100% more yellow text! Annoying touch buttons! Limited edition! OOoooOOOoooo! Spooky

List of Pocket Edition splash texts is large, and you can find it online via Google by placing a couple of messages in quotes in Google search.

Each of the splash texts has a meaning. For example, the “Joel is Neat” text may be based on the JoelMCPE on Twitter – he pointed out some bugs to Tommaso.

What is 110813 in Minecraft? This is a reference to when Notch got married, August 13th, 2011.

You can even customize the yellow splash screen text in Minecraft (the random quotes that come up), especially if you are experiencing a Minecraft splash text glitch and the text is stuck or it is gibberish. The text is pulled from the splashes.txt inside the Minecraft.jar.

Google Analyticsed! Minecraft say what? I wonder if they are using Google “Anlytics” to do in-app tracking?
