Parting Ways with a Childhood Experience
« on: November 17, 2019, 04:46 pm »
Sploder has been a website that has been adored by many. But the time has come, and its demise isn't necessarily a depressing sight.

An end exists for everything. Now, it's the time for Sploder to end.

Some of the members on here have risen in toxicity levels, to which their demise is an end worth seeing. Some other members have been here since the days that I've been here. From my 6th-grade self to my 11th-grade self now...

When I began on this website, I was an immature little fella. I was hungry for the moderator rights and I was, quite, cringy... honestly. After the 6th grade, I was desperate to leave as this website sucked me into its core... Nothing of sploder's fault, but I had to leave.

An ignoramus started posting porn across the forum, and I saw it as my get-away. I quoted the porn on purpose, and my ban was set. I was gone.

I needed a break, and it was a break I took in 7th grade. In 8th grade, I came back... but I don't believe I was active on here... at least for the school year... and the same was for 9th grade. When I entered high school, I was greatly inactive... only returning here for certain periods to check what was going on.

I came back here in high school to only see that a certain splode deleted everything of the past... Very disappointing, but... it happened... and I had to deal with it. Maybe, it's a good thing that they were deleted [for me]. I would've cringed at the very stupid posts I made back in those days.

Now that I'm seeing the demise of sploder in the 11th grade, I'm honestly not terribly sad. The people that I used to talk to seem to not have any interest in me, which is honestly totally fine. My life has gotten to the point where I don't need online friends and the only friends that I truly care about are the ones in real life. This is not to say that I don't give a damn about any Sploder folks that care about me, but I'm not going to be as attached to y'all as I was back in the days.

The end of Sploder doesn't put a smile to my face (a noticeable one, at least), but rather, it doesn't make me sad. The time has came for this site to shut down and inevitably, that time has reached.

To all those who have been my friends for over the years and made me feel comfortable here, I genuinely say thank you for helping me shape up my childhood. It was an awesome experience.

To those who did the opposite, I thank you as well--but maybe not genuinely. You guys shaped me up to become the man I am today and I'm thankful for that. I have an issue with being sensitive, but that issue has drastically decreased over the years.

To this site, I bid farewell. I'm not leaving any contact information as I don't have any info for anybody to contact me with---except for my email... You can message me personally for an email, if I log back in. I don't have social media or any other platforms.

To the site itself, a great ton of memories. Ever since the finding of Sploder in Sri Lanka, it has evolved into something more than just a game site... but as a place to make friends. I had my good share of friends in real life, but having friends in the online world was something I never complained about.

Ah, you must think that Liam was the one who deleted everything. No, Liam merely deleted the staff accounts. After Liam did that, Geoff had assumed the forums had been hacked, and in an attempt to keep the data of people safe, he deleted the forums.

That's what Bohobes look like.

This is plain stupidity how people keep posting these threads.


People (At least me) are trying to keep the forum feel here by enjoying it and some people come and talk emotionally about its demise making it feel as if its already dead. Yes it is. But we're trying to revive it a little when it exists.


But doesn't mean you cant make it, but please stop talking about sploder dying, we're trying to keep it active until it actually dies.

Don't be stupid. The past is where it belongs, and we can't bring that back. We can't live in a facade that Sploder is what it once was. I do agree, however, that we should keep this place alive while we can. We should enjoy this, but we only can with a sense of nostalgia. It was a great experience. I miss those days.

No, that's stupid. We can enjoy Sploder, but only with a sense of nostalgia. If I were to pretend it was alive, I'd be arguing about why Sceptile should be brought back or how I should be promoted to a reviewer.

Because sceptile was nothing... but Vaxen2 once covered the whole member page. But in game making they both trash but then you can go and talk about Ov3rlord

I can't be possibly jealous at a guy way elder than me who left Sploder four years before I joined it. His games are all art games, have incredible effort put in and also have amazing design, but none of them are actual games with any objective

I get you now... Just art but no objective...

Now that I think of it, he's right
