Title: Sploder
Post by: geoff on March 11, 2018, 07:39 PM
Hello friends,

Just wanted to pop in and let you know where Sploder stands right now as a site.

Sploder has been my dream project for many years, and has given me great joy. I love to community we've built and I think it's so amazing to see all the time, creative energy and talent devoted to this place.

I wish I could still work on this site full-time. But the reality is, Sploder isn't getting the views it once was in its heyday. Most of this is due to the goal-posts being moved. Adobe failed us and Flash is going to die. Sploder will probably go with it. I place all the blame on the bloated, festering bureaucracy that Adobe has become. I've never felt such disdain for a company before, but also I've never seen a single company stamp out so much creative potential before.

To all of you who have enjoyed Sploder over the years... I'm happy I could create something others can enjoy. To all of you on the staff who have helped keep things running, I can never repay you for your dedication. Thank you so much.

So what's going to happen to Sploder? I'll keep it running until it stops working. At some point, entropy will win, and I'll need to shut it down.

For now, though, hey... enjoy the ride.

Your humble servant,
Geoff

Thank you for everything you�ve done for this site; it�s going to be hard to see it come to an end after being on here since 5th grade but I honestly couldn�t even count the amount of wonderful experiences I�ve had on here.  With that being said though, good luck on your future endeavors though and I hope everything works out for you irl.

Thank you for all you've done Geoff, this site has been great to me and I'm very happy to have been apart of this great community.

I have two questions, will you make all the creators open source when you shut down the site and will be see any further updates?

Thanks for making this, Geoff. It's nice to see what you're planning with sploder. Sploder has been a great experience for all of us, and it'd be sad to see it die. But, flash is getting shut down soon and sploder's popularity is at an all-time low. Anyways, thanks for this wonderful site you've made. I'm gonna be sticking with sploder until the end.

Thank you so much for creating this website, letting such a wonderful community form, letting so many people express themselves creatively, and just making it fun enough to make me spend my whole childhood on it! So many of us grew up on Sploder and I don't think it will ever die from any of our memories. Thank you for all of the time and effort you put into this website and thank you for so many of the great memories that it's given me.

Thank you geoff.

Post by: Demonxz95 on March 11, 2018, 08:04 PM
As everyone else, I thank you greatly for this site. I made my first account when I was 11 or 12, and I made my current account when I was 13. Now I'm almost 19 and a college student. I've stuck with Sploder ever since and I will stick with it until it dies. This site has played a big role in my life and I cherish it with all my heart, which I will continue to do for the rest of time. This place really is wonderful and it's not just the games either. The community and everything in this place really is great. I've made SEVERAL good friends on this site (I won't try to name them because I will forget a lot of them) and nearly everyone on this site is great. I came for the game making, but I stayed for absolutely everything.

There really is no adequate way to describe how thankful I am of Sploder's existence and how much I truly appreciate it. I thank you with everything I can because this site truly feels like an extension of my life.

There's so much I can say right now, so many thoughts. A site I've consistently visited nearly every day and definitely every week for more than half of my lifetime is like losing a family member, multiple actually if it means I have to lose contact with some people here..
Title: Re: Sploder
Post by: pepperedSteak on March 11, 2018, 08:19 PM
Oh my god I'm actually crying my eyes out, Sploder as a whole means so so much to me and everyone else, and being here half my life it may as well be  a part of me. For the love of god I will never forget this place, the people I've met, my experiences here, and everything that is Sploder.

When me and Joji made our first account so long ago (7 years), I remember making it like it was yesterday. I remember making my first game, a fairly simple game called The Big Ladder, and many more after that; who knew such crappy games could hold such soul within them. I hope I never forget anyone I've ever been friends with on here, from 2011 to present.

Post by: sticki on March 11, 2018, 08:25 PM
Do you even know big of an impact you've had on our lives, Geoff? Your site created a community like no other, and I'm almost saddened that some people were never able to experience it. You created a place that has shaped so many people's lives, human lives that have been largely impacted by your passion project. If someone were to ask me if sploder was successful, I wouldn't even be able to put it into words how successful this site was. Sure, the numbers weren't all there, but the people who consistently visited this site, some for over a DECADE. Please, if it's possible, keep these forums running somehow. Preserve the threads and ranks, and maybe simply make an edit to the theme or subject matter of the forum. We don't need a mainsite connected to it for it to be worthwhile.

I always knew a thread like this would happen eventually but reading it still hurts

Ten years of my life spent on this site, joking around and laughing with some of the most amazing people ever. Whenever the site does break and shut down, at the very least I will have met and be able to keep contact with many of the best friends someone like me could ask for on the discord and other stuff like that. I'm not good with words but I want to thank you for giving me and everyone else the opportunity to know each other.

I know we've still got a while before this place shuts down, so I'm trying not to be too down about it. I'd like to say a few things, however.

I cannot express in words the impact this special place you created has had on me. Your passion project has helped mold me into the guy I am today. I've made some incredible friends here, and I've had a lot of fun in my nine years of mainsite membership and seven years of forum membership.

This website will always have a special place in my heart, and I couldn't give you enough thanks for making it no matter how hard I tried. You have irreversibly changed my life in the most positive way. I expressed myself creatively here through both games and my sploder story. I've made great friends who I value strongly. You're a good person, Geoff, and I wish you nothing but the best in life. I won't forget this place after it's gone. For the now, I'll enjoy it the best I can.
Title: Re: Sploder
Post by: Enigma on March 11, 2018, 09:18 PM
God, this place means so much to me. Thank you for all you've done, Geoff. But even with the games gone, I beg you not to shut down the site or the forum.
Title: Re: Sploder
Post by: Baysha on March 11, 2018, 09:22 PM
Thank you Geoff. You've made a site with a community that really taught me what having friends was like. And if I ever start making games with other things, I'll always look back to this site. And I'll remember the ways it helped me become who I am now.

Post by: NaZa on March 12, 2018, 12:03 AM
Geoff, thank you for everything. Sploder has greatly improved my English and I think, in some aspects, made me a much better person.

I remember when I played Top Gear games in 2011.
I remember when I made my first game.
I remember my contest win, I ran in my backyard and yelled my lungs out.
I remember my first venture into Forums.
I remember my Review app being accepted.
Most importantly, I remember having fun with everyone!

Thank you!!

I have to thank you for all the work you've done in making this place and the experience a big part of my life that I won't be forgetting any time soon. I think the greatest part about what you've done here is the community that you've brought together and the knowledge that perhaps even if the site does, we'll still have the community together
Title: Re: Sploder
Post by: Manga�Mixer on March 12, 2018, 12:17 AM
I read your thread, and it almost made me cry. Sploder is, arguably, my favorite community site and seeing this website fading away makes me wanna leave the internet for some reason.

I have so many memories on this website like the time when created my first old account Gamerdeath722, and get to know the members of this forum (like all of you guys here). Without Sploder, I wouldn�t be able to communicate with anyone from the internet (aside from Discord, Instagram, and Twitter).

But in all seriousness, thank you, Geoff, for everything you work with the site.

Post by: Startrek on March 12, 2018, 12:36 AM
Geoff, I cannot express in full words how saddened I am and the fact I'm finding it really difficult to accept that this site will eventually leave.

I remember being part of the community ever since 2009 as hadiclank, and I have to say that for a part of my life, it was definitely the best online experience anyone can ask for, if not better than most of my experiences irl.

Even with the sudden reality kicking in that it is now more temporary as it seems, I cannot forget this community, the wonderful people, the far-cry of the game creators and the insanely fun competition that went with it. Us members hyping up game creators, making absurdly wacky games, tribute accounts.. naming all of them spells a neverending cry of nostalgia in my book.

I honestly had to take a minute after reading this because I don't think I'll ever be ready to come to terms with it once it's gone. That's the harsh reality really. you'll never know you had it until it's gone. Sure I've had my ounces with superficially unpleasant people along the way as part of this long journey, but the great moments were undeniably the ones that made me feel most grateful about who I was, how it set out to be someone I eventually become.

Looking back almost ten years ago, I remember looking up at the greats like Shayminlord879, 7grant2, paccreater, callumwrexham2, splatter, trevordaman and cyclone43, treating them like full-blown sploder idols and wishing some day I'd end up becoming like them. And to the sudden realization that they were pretty much young enthusiastic people like us from the getgo, and not this glorious macho we'd disdardly think of them up to be.

I remember how fun it was to experience each game-creator to its full potential, whip up the canvas and foresee creativity and puzzles that were never done before. The imagination was exciting, unreal and somewhat heartfelt because for once there was actually something in my life I was actually good at.

Knowing that the core of that will eventually die off is like losing a part of my soul, and forgetting how I was even born.

The community here is great above all odds. I'll be honest, this is the first strong-base community I've ever had, as soon as I joined the internet and sometime after Runescape and Neopets. I'll never forget my first few friends here like jomatt99, vinniepaz, casper11, alexhw, roosters, trevordaman as well as those that helped enrich my experience over time like apod, ffk, konni/8bit/charis, liamnight, aditya75, patelio03, amberstone12, hardgamez77, shady, nza and of course Sticki. Honestly tbf, if it wasn't for sticki, I would've taken longer to come back here or never come back at all!
It's sad enough knowing the alternative could've happened.

This community has definitely aged over time, and with that I felt we've grown with it, so we were able to stay strong and being together over the course of time. It's like having a family out there I've never really met in person, but something I'd cry over once it's gone.

I literally cried over this because I felt like I've done a bit of my share here, making sploder-hype videos, getting to know a lot of people here even though it's not like it used to, getting feature-streaks, hyping upcoming games, competing and also enjoying the laughs here and there.

So without any benefit of the doubt, I thank you man for literally everything you've done here working tirelessly for over ten years keeping the mainsite and forum intact, establishing a strong friendly and hard-working community,
and also to the staff here for making that experience a whole lot better in my book. Thanks to the community itself for teaching me what making friends was like when I first arrived here, and letting that set the gears in motion in my life is simply an addition to one of my life's greatest virtues. I also enjoyed the pms and sploderhead games we've shared especially near the dying tier end, it was such a multitude of great moments sharing time to time with the creator of this site to get such an enriching perspective of it all.

I really had a great time here real talk and that's all you can ask for really at the end of the day. That mutual feeling when several generations down the line will ever say the same, knowing this place will very well cease to exist closer to home.

So if anyone wants to contact me as soon as we get into the dying days, I'll be happy to share some of my details.

Well this is a shock, and it�s a rough feeling processing it. It�s sad that this has to come to an end, but at the end of the day everything does. Fond memories are formed from nostalgia we have for something we can�t go back to. We�re gonna look back on the memories we�ve had with this place and reminisce on what an incredible time we�ve had.

So thank you Geoff. It�s been a wild 7-8 years being a part of this awesome community, and I love all you guys for being a part of it with me. We have the discord, but for those not there I wish you all the very best of luck in life going forwards.

At the end of the day, you guys approach the world with the attitudes you possess here, you�re gonna go absolutely miles. :)

Sploder's finally going to go down huh?

It was because of this website that sparked my interest in game development further. Sure i made a lot of crappy games here back when I was 10 or 11 or so, but I had a lot of fun doing it. If you ask me, Sploder put the fun in game development, even if the creators were just mere level editors. And on the forums, even if a lot of the people here hated me at one point, I still made a lot of friends in this community.

Thanks Geoff. Thanks for all the great memories.

Just posting in this thread and adding to the bulk comments

I joined Sploder when I was around 9 or 10, and for me, this site was my creative outlet. When I was young I always dreamed of creating games and Sploder allowed me to do that with a click of a button. It's continued to be my creative outlet because I don't have the motivation to learn a super complicated coding system (lol) and I love building games on here and seeing my games coming to life is so rewarding.

I also want to thank you for keeping this site completely free. Even though I could definitely afford to pay for a subscription of some sort, the fact that you made everything free to use highlights that you really love this site so much. All of us are forever in your debt.

The community has also meant so much to me. Having a place to write to people who, many years back, were older and more mature than me really helped me. I've created lasting friendships with incredible people all around the world and these people have helped me through many things. Having people that are always there for me no matter what meant (and means) so much to me.

Thanks to everyone for the wild ride and let's keep making some awesome games and having a great time right till the end :)

I honestly never thought I�d see the day. I kept telling myself �hey sploder s gonna get more active, the 3D creator just needs to be released then everything will be okay right?� I guess I should�ve faced the reality sooner...

Well thank you so much for allowing us to be on this website Geoff. This site and the people in general have helped gotten me through some dark times. While I wasn�t the greatest at making games, I still had a lot of fun making them and being myself around a community that loved its members so much. I wish flash didn�t have to die...I wish this site would thrive once more...hopefully this isn�t the last time we hear from you my good man. If sploder dies please update on discord or something. We all love you. And I love all the members here...god I just...can�t beleive it...I�ve been on this site for 7 years now and it�s almost over...

Thank you everyone and I�m glad I�ve met you all over the years. I know we have discord now but still ill never forget this.

I'm speechless, I've been a part of this community since 2013, seeing it go through this is hard. Things are just going downhill no matter what we do, and that's honestly depressing. The community is very unique, and we'll all likely remain here even after the Flash purge, but part of what made Sploder what it is was the amount of creative content. I believe, somehow, we need to save all of that, even if it's just a recorded playthrough. This post has put me in a full panic mode, I had to rearrange my whole schedule for upcoming releases. If we can start some kind of preservation project, I believe that should be enough,  to at least save the memories of Sploder.

it's sad seeing it all go away eventually. most of my childhood was spent here, and i still spend my time mindlessly checking threads out of boredom.
with this site closing it'll all be even more dull. at this point it's a reflex opening the sploder forums as the first thing i do when i open my pc

thanks for checking in and letting us know geoff :)

Geoff, I appreciate the post. Hearing this makes me emotional. But, we cannot just talk negative. There is hope for this site. So we need to do something to help Sploder. But seeing that I am still a teenager, my input means nothing when it comes to adults. But I do appreciate everything you have done. There is still the forums.


P.S. Take a look at my research project!

Thank you Geoff, my childhood was here. Even though some don't know me but I am sploderscience64. I have been here since 2012, and it's sad to say Sploder will end because everything that has a beginning has an end, it's a sad quote from the Matrix Revolutions, and it happens to all things, even us. I grew up mature now and I do understand your work through this site. I will have memories right here..

I got 2 questions, Firstly, is there anyway you can replace Adobe with Sploder? I know that you've tried your best but I will not force you for this decision. Secondly, what's your next site to create when Sploder eventually dies? Maybe you can create one but it's all your choice.

Anyway, thank you so much for this site..
It's sad to say that goodbyes are.. not good.
Memories can last a lifetime.. And I will never forget this site.

Goodbye, until we meet again.

I remember the year 2012 very well. It was when I created my first account here, when I was just a kid having fun on Sploder. Since then, in 2017, I created this account, but I didn't really begin making games on this account until this year. I'm quite new to the forums, having joined using this account at the end of January.

Naturally, I'm quite upset about this. However, I'm determined to make the most out of what time there is left here. I'm thankful that you were able to deliver such an amazing platform for everyone to express their creativity. Sploder might not physically live on, but it will always live in the hearts and minds of the many people who have been a part of this community. Let's continue until the very end.

Sorry for taking so long to post, but I've literally been reading through this entire thread thanking nearly every post, with every word my heart sank more and more. My mind raced to find an answer. My lips twitched. There's so much I want to say.

This site has been so fun. My sibs and I joined main back in 2013-14 I believe, and I've been on forums around 2 to 3 years? I'm not sure but in my heart it feels like I've known this site forever. I feel like I know you guys personally. I feel like this site is a part of my life, and I thank everyone for existing, coming here, and just being yourselves. But, most of all, I thank Geoff, (yes. GEE OFF) for creating this community. I'm pretty sure you had no idea of what young Sploder would become, how many lives it would impact, and how greatly it would be missed.

I want to tell everyone that I still think of and pray for you all daily. You all have a special place in my heart. In the back of my mind, a little voice is yelling "we have two years! there's still time!" but if there's absolutely nothing that can be done, I feel like I'm coming to the end of a good book or movie. Sensing the climax's inevitable reign, checking how many pages or minutes are left, staring down, "it can't end now!" shedding a tear, but looking around to see if anyone laughs at you, just to realize that everyone is feeling your very same pain.

I can't say enough. Thank you Geoff. I will never give up on sploder.

God bless.

My, my, this is certainly news to me. I knew this was gonna happen. We all did, and yet it still hits so hard when it finally happens. In hindsight, I might not have made many games or achieved half the stuff I once wanted to on this site, but I still had fun all the same.
I can't say I'm surprised this has happened, but I do truly hope that the community can continue to thrive on the Discord and anywhere else. The people here is what truly made the experience for me and after all the hardships, especially in the last year, I genuinely don't know where I'd be if it weren't for the support of people here. I said a couple of days ago on the Discord that it gave me the strength and hope to find people in person as well. Not another site or community that have done something like that for me. It's funny I've never seen any of you in person and likely never will and yet you guys feel more real than most of my irl friends.

Thanks for the memories yall


I still remember when I first joined this website and started making games. Babybuster4ever and startrek were my first friends. Then I started meeting others, such as konni through the featured games section my games occasionally appeared on. When I joined the forums, it was pretty weird for me as I had no idea how to post and stuff. I figured it out somewhat quickly though and I became a popular member of the community. I had to cease my activies in mid 2012 however, and I was inactive for a long time. When I came back in early 2014, I found myself hooked on the website. At this point there was a certain factor of nostalgia which made it hard for me to leave. 2015 and early 2016 however were nothing too special for me. In September 2016 I returned from a brief inactivity in summer and I made lots of new friends like proxy and peppered and since then I havent had any inactivity. In July 2017 i got soldier and since then ive spent most of my time chillin on discord which is nice but i have felt that something like this would happen for a while but nevertheless this is really sad :(

The journey began in july 2016, and im sad that it will come to an inevitable end, this place changed my life and my personality, without it i cant imagine what my life would look like today. No matter how many times ive tried to quit this website, i couldn't leave, it keeps pulling me back. Throughout my sploder lifetime ive seen many people come and go, a lot of drama was made, but at the end of the day sploder remains a happy place. We have to do what we have to do to keep this website running, and one day we might have a chance to make sploder popular again.

On the other hand... nothing lasts forever.

Post by: J0ji on March 12, 2018, 07:04 PM
Staring down the end of this place, I realize just how difficult it is for me to explain my experience here, and just how much it means to me.

I was eleven or twelve when I joined Sploder�a very long time ago. It�s challenging for me to make sense of the jumbled impressions of those days, moony feelings that have outlived my memories, a string of dreams. That kid I was, he�s so far away. Sitting here today I�m left not with recollections of myself, but with the melancholy of remembering a stranger. I made games, with my brother, and it was fun. I kept going. He made more than I did. I wanted my games to be good, it was exciting, and big�very big.

After leaving for the first time, I came back every now and then and made a few games. Sometimes I�d forget all about it, but it was always an option. It was always there. My younger self wasn�t invested with the members. He came here to work, to test limits... to make something special. A playground, a home, for the creative and the dedicated, that�s what it was. A website unlike any I�d been too. I wasn�t given anything, I was giving. We were giving.

When I was seventeen, I joined the forum, and met some of the best people in the world. In ten months or so, a time that felt like a lifetime and nothing at all, I was moderating this community full of people that, not so long ago, were just names on a screen. people I cared about. Sploder always had something new, it was always about pushing limits, and like the mainsite pushed me to be a better creator, the forum pushed me to be a better leader and a better person.

After everything, I still look back at that little boy that wanted to make games, and, I must admit, I�m unable bring to mind many clear images. It�s so foggy, but I know I was a kid, and I know this place, Geoff, made that kid very very happy.

For that, both of us would like to thank you.

Hey Geoff, just wanted to sincerely say thank you for the commitment and dedication you took for all of the years in every capacity you were reaching forward to. I know I've only been here for a few years but last year was a life-changing point with my own mentality and what I could actually do as an individual. I know that what I started off, in the beginning, was devastating but I began to learn my own personality and behavior I could not only endure elsewhere. It was some kind of shelter the people brought me in, some of the best people I've ever met in my entire life; bringing me hope towards a lenient side of reality. With every struggle, difficult kinds of scenarios, and flaws I would encounter throughout my last 5 years living, I had gratitude for not only I enjoyed talking to but the moments that were created. Even if I've drifted away from this place nowadays and been gone to chase my own ambitions, I'll still remind myself what I grew up and flourished in any way who I am today always. It seems slightly unbelievable that now I'm no longer going to associate with this community anymore. But as an ordinary person to just look up as now,

simply thank you.

Sad to see that sploder has finally come and gone. It makes it feel as if all my efforts creating those games, especially League of Deities II was for nothing. When I was a young boy, maybe around 12, I stumbled upon this site while searching for a site that could let me create games, and I was so amazed and inspired when I played the games created by well known creators here such as Lumberjay, with "The Legend of Ganondorf" leaving a lasting impression on my young self, inspiring me to create games just as large and strive to surpass a game which I idolized as being near perfect. As such, many of my games toke months to create, countless hours of sweat and tears, sometimes not knowing what to do when I ran out of ideas, and in those times, I looked up to my idols such as the games of Youngcaliman to give me the inspiration to continue to finish my games. I still remember the day when I was first given my reviewer badge, and then after some reviews, I became editor, and a year afterwards, a moderator on the Main Site. Unfortunately now, most of the people that I know are long gone from this site, all of whom I will dearly miss. Now, I am a 20 year old college student who has long since moved on from Sploder, though I cannot say that sploder did not have a significant impact on my teenage years, because sploder was my teenage years. To this to thee, this shall be my last post and the last time that I log into the site. Many thanks and god bless to my old pals who unfortunately have also come to pass, 1twenty1guns, Sto4, Yugioh77, displacedranger, aqib, and many more that I cannot remember. To this I bid thee all farewell, as I ride off into the sunset.

Adding my two cents, I joined Sploder August 4, 2010. I remember finding it when I was searching for things I could use to make games.  While I won't say that my games have been the best, one of my dreams on Sploder was to make a featured game. I guess my horrible EGD entry, MazeMasterZ: Elemental Education counts, but I wanted a game featured that I, and everyone else, could be proud of. I don't know if that will happen now.

Well, I finally decided to show up in this thread.

From the days of being an immature splode who made B grade games to people constantly wondering why I never join Sploderheads games, I will always remember Sploder in one way or another. I will remember the mediocre games. I will remember the many people I met. I will remember Sploder, and it's sad to see it go after all these years.

It was fun while it lasted, and while we have less than two years left, we should make the most out of it.

I guess I might as well share my whole Sploder Story.
6, almost 7, years ago 8-9 year old me went to a library program about a website called scratch. I made an account there by the name of Eldarado. I didn't do much before I got banned for saying mean stuff (idk what anymore). Then i searched for a game making website and I stumbled upon sploder.
Little Eldar fell in love with this site  and made 'AgentP1" but I quickly got warned for being mean to others because I was a brat back then. Then, after i went away for a weekend, I got hacked and lost the password to AgentP1 because the hacker changed it. I've yet to this day found out who it was.
Then over the next few months I made multiple accounts (some I still have the information for) Eventually, I made Eldarado.
I joined the forums not long after making an account, even though I was 9 but I didn't do much here.
Sooner rather than later, I left.
Late 2015, I remembered here and came to check up. I was minorly active on the forums a while before leaving.
Later in mid 2016 I came back and was once again a little active and then left until late 2016 where I have been coming much more frequently then I used to. I was still a bit immature back then so I did get my first (currently only) POW sentence. In spring 2017 I started the first game I legitimately tried to make good on the MS although I ended up giving up and running out of time (it was for EGD). I joined the discord not much later but then got banned for sending an image I didn't realize was innapropriate (whoops). I lost a little activity then until about september where i've been active(well, most times, a few exceptions) ever since. In January of this year I started my game which is to be my best game yet, The Choice.
Thank you Geoff for all of the good memories <3

But I suppose that's just how things are; nothing lasts forever. I hope the forums stay up at least.

I love all you guys *hugs* And if Sploder shuts down, you can find me on ROBLOX (not my favorite site, but I don't have any social media so that's pretty much the only place you can find me). My username there is 'spicekittycat123'.

Hey,

I just wanted all to know what's possible here. We should be building bridges, not burning them. With the site, well, in two years, we should really work on trying to strengthen our friendships and be good with mostly everybody, and not leaving the site with bitter stuff that happened.

man I will miss this site I've had great memories through my childhood on here found this site July 2012 made my first account thegoldking (originally username was eman9000710) and this site brought back memories my cousin introduced me and my friend to this site and I will never forget that day. Making games, meeting people, and making friends I will never forget this site and the people I met, the main friends I made were Vaxen2, Pieman224, Thedarksun, futuremillionare, chloride2 and many others. This site was a special part of my childhood and I'm glad I found it, I wish I would come on here more, but now since its going away sometime in the future I plan on coming on here more. I will be making a game dedicating a tribute to Sploder and Geoff for making this fantastic site himself.

What you have done is truly outstanding, and so many people are incredibly thankful for you creating this website in the first place. This website has played a massive role in making memories and friendships which could last a lifetime. And we have you to thank for being allowing us to use this platform and let our creativity shine.

Hello everyone, just Benno the lurker lurking here.

This really is sad news, Sploder was such a great site, and even though I rarely go on it anymore, I will however miss this site when it goes. It's such a shame that flash is basically dead, and the site has lost a lot of popularity, I really hoped this site would last forever, but all good things come to an end. I hope the forums stays up, even if the main site is gone, as I don't want to re-emerge one day to find everything gone, a website I spent so much time on, just gone. Thank you Geoff for creating this wonderful site, now I'm off to replay all my awful MS games behind tears,  ::'(:

Uh . . . I don't think Geoff is giving up. There is a difference between giving up and letting go. I mean, for one, Geoff hasn't shut down the mainsite or even the forums. If he had, then yes, it would have been a valid argument that he is giving up. No, he's going to keep Sploder going for as long as Flash is around.
Another thing: this thread shouldn't inspire just sadness; it should inspire a will to change. If we want to save Sploder, then we need to be committed to saving it. Defeatism won't get us anywhere.

I hate sounding corny but thank you so much Geoff for everything i'm able to look back on, for all these great people I got to meet because of you. Was never one to have many irl friends, so Sploder was a pretty great escape for me. Is it possible to preserve the forums though? I don't see why not, even if i'm never on here anymore. I'd just hate to see it go, haha.

I think that there are multiple reasons to save sploder.

#3 if flash is truly an issue, snatch the creators and make them open source
and offer them to the dev team kids of sploder
 
#2 Try a flash-based browser for JESUS CHRIST SAKES!!!!

#1 Keep sploder but make it only for the 3d, arcade, Possibly sploderheads, creator and ask for other devs to make new creators.

Ignore BELOW
throw in the filthy bottom towel and go live in kookidazical the mickey mouse clubhouse
and tuck your genius brain-head skull into the flarp pillow an yell your pixelized site into oblivion
Then go marry a Spanish girl and move to Hawaii or whatever your plans are Geoff


So anyway whatever you plan to do with your site son....
I fully Support.


God what am I saying
IGNORE the WHOLE POST.

Post by: wordigirl on April 08, 2018, 03:10 AM
I said this a while back...
I don't see why sploder has to completely shut down though. There are a few games that aren't completely flash based such as arcade and sploderheads, and although that would be drastically more "boring" than the site as it now stands, we can still linger around and if and when the 3d creator gets up it will bring some more excitement. Maybe there's "no hope" for the older flash creators, but we can always stand by implementing new creators over time. There's a strong community, and a lot of people like retro and sploderheads. Why would you delete them when it is completely unnecessary? Those creators still have quite a following, and people enjoy them.
but ppg ;-;

I know. phys and plat are my absolute faves. We can try to work on having someone convert them over, but we don't have to shut down sploder in the mean time.

When I was a preteen, this site was my life. I went on here nonstop, and I also made a lot of friends too. Thank you Geoff for making such a huge part of my childhood, and thank all of you Sploder members for being my friends.

But in all seriousness, I can say for an absolute fact this is not true. If Geoff didn't care, he wouldn't have bothered to tell us. He would have let it die unexpectedly. If Geoff didn't care, he wouldn't have even suggested a possible way to AT LEAST save the forums. If you want to talk about somebody who doesn't care, talk about Nitrome. As far as I know, they haven't updated their blog much on their website, and the updates they have made are for their mobile games. To my knowledge, they haven't bothered to even tell their fans as to what they plan to do with their flash games. I could be wrong, but I know that Geoff does care. This hurts him, so next time, before you say he doesn't care, hold your friggin tongue and think.

It's a shame to hear this, particularly as I'm new here and haven't yet gotten to experience what the place is like properly. I think you shouldn't close Sploder forums completely, but turn it into more of a general forum - not just a game development forum. You could attract new members, maybe fix up the forum design a bit/give it a refreshed look and keep this place going. You'd be able to attract more users if it's a large, general forum.

I would like to say thank you Geoff. This was a place I discovered roughly a decade ago now by searching "Make flash games" and the impact that simple search made on my life has been massive. This was a place for me to let out creativity, to learn from and share knowledge with my peers, and to make many wonderful friends. I have thoroughly enjoyed making and playing games on this site to the point that for a long time it was very much an addiction.

It seems like only yesterday I was studying games by the likes of CTP and Tookewl and many others. Learning from their games and trying to take that knowledge and experience and use it to fuel my own creations. Pumping out games eager to get feedback eventually here and there landing on something that truly grabbed peoples attention. It was inspiring to know that some of my creations were inspirational to others and left a mark on this site that would last.

Between the main site and the forums this place was a home to me like it has been so many others. I have been an inactive member for quite some time now but still I think of this place time to time and am always flooded with memories. I have met many wonderful people and have had many ups and downs. I am sure for a lot of people this is just another website, but for the die hard members watching this place drift into the darkness is going to be like having a chunk of our life vanish before our eyes. It truly saddens me to think that some day in the near future I will think of this place come to check in and it just won't be here.

I agree with the idea that others have mentioned about keeping the forums up and running. It will of course become a ghost town, but it can always be a place that holds the records of the legacy this place and its members will leave behind.

I am so thankful that I was here in its prime and have so many fond memories. It will be sad to watch it go, in a few short years I could have introduced my own daughters to this place and they could carry the torch. Alas we all knew that it couldn't last forever, times change. So it shall go the way of the Dodo.

Geoff you have given us all something wonderful. You should be very proud of what you accomplished here. You have touched so many lives in ways you may not even understand. Kudos to you sir, I hope your next project in life can bring you the same joy and happiness that this one has given to so many.

As inevitable as this was, it sucks to see it happen so soon. I know it may be in a few years, but like many others have said I can't believe that one of these next times I come to check up on here it just won't exist.

I may be super inactive now, but in it's prime I spent hours daily on the main site and on the forums. It was the perfect creative outlet for those of us who wanted to create games, but were too young or not in the mood to spend hours coding a game that barely worked. Sploder was perfect and I always thought that it would explode in popularity. Unfortunately, however, all good things must come to an end.

This place has given me and many others amazing memories during the span of half our lives. Many of us have known eachother longer than our own friends in real life. And for that, Geoff, I thank you. I'm so glad that I was able to be a part of the staff and I just can't believe that Sploder will one day be gone :(

Perhaps we could save Sploder by somehow porting it to another program kind of like Adobe Flash? I know it would be very difficult, but it could possible be the thing that saves it! I dunno doh. I am just some person that has never used anything like Adobe Flash in my entire life...

Some Sugestions:

Synfig Studio:   https://synfig.org
Animation Desk:   https://kdanmobile.com/en/animati...
OpenToonz:   https://opentoonz.github.io/e/
Krita:   https://krita.org/en

Thanks everyone. I regret not being more vocal when I was active, but I really loved the time I spent here regardless, ever since I joined just over 7 years ago. Becoming a reviewer and soldier, having one of the first PPG features, and of course just hanging around in an online forum/community for the first time - I have to thank Sploder for all of those things.

I'm planning to pursue a career in the video game industry. :)

I hope everyone who's been a part of this community is doing well!

WAIT WTH I JUST SAW THIS
NOOOOOOO
Thank you so much for everything you've put into this. You've created something amazing ::'(:

But I have so many questions. What about the new creator you were working on for so long? Will the forums stay and run on more updated software? Or is this place just done for good?  ::-[:

dunno about the new creator, but the forums might stay
Who knows ... I think the question is, will Sploder become a white dwarf or a brown dwarf? If it's a white dwarf, I can see the forums living on. As long as there's enough to talk about. Even if it's just Sploder multiplayer maybe that's enough... who knows. I'd be willing to pay to keep this forum running on a $10 DigitalOcean server until it fizzles...

I may sound stupid, but... what "end of Flash Player's support" even mean? It's probaly not going to get any updates, and this is completely normal. It happens to everything over the years, even my current operating system won't get updates in years, but it will still work, it can be still used. Then what "end of Flash Player's support" really mean? Will Flash Player even work, can we enable it, can we use it, will it just be turned off forever? Will we be able to use it? If we can still use it, then why is Sploder ending? And as many people quoted above, can't we just recreate the creators and pretty much everything in this website in HTML5 and other programming languages? Sure, it will took a lot of time, but the website could probaly live on, it will probaly even get it's prime times once again.
I hope the forums will be still around, so I can still see and chat with friends.
