Forums,

If you aren’t on the Discord, it’s time to hop on. PM lordelar for a link on for a way to get on the server.

Some quick answers to common questions.

1. Will Geoff ever update the site again.
No. The website is built on obsolete technology. All updates would eventually result in more breaks, and patching a few holes out of hundreds will not stop a sinking ship. He will likely fix issues that cause the site to crash; otherwise, it’s into the sunset we go.

2. Will Geoff hand off the site to anyone?
No. If the site were able to be maintained and fixed up to still be usable, he would have done so. At this point of time, it is easier to recreate Sploder from scratch if one wished too.

3. If he doesn’t update the site, does he still care about it?
Yes. He spent a lot of time and dedication to making this place as amazing as it was. But not everything is meant to last forever. He has a full time gig else where and Sploder just hasn’t kept up with the modern trends of mobile gaming and moving away from flash. He keeps the site running so that long time users can squeeze out whatever final interests they may have. After all, Sploder was Geoffs major creation, and he is also sad to see it go.

4. What happens next?
Two things. 1. Join the Discord. The exodus has already happened for most people, and with the forums database error tanking most recent threads, it definitely was a wake up call for many to just head to the Discord. 2. Continue to use the forum as usual. The active staff are still doing their part to keep this forum up and running.

5. What’s on the Discord?
It’s a lot more banter and relaxed conversation. There are dedicated channels to art and creations. However, the main site is not an active discussion on the Discord - the forum is still better suited for that.

6. Will there be another forum?
People have strayed from forums in recent years. With our dwindling community, we don’t have enough activity to have the need for such a style of communication. Although backup forums were made in the past, I believe most people just was casual conversation and to hang out.

7. So what do we do here in the forum then?
I suppose make of it as you wish. Back up threads if you care about them. Chill with whatever user logs on. We will be checking to make sure there aren’t major rule breaking incidents, but other than that it’s just a slow forum.
EDIT by Bolsillos: Although the forums are not doing much right now, that does not mean we are giving up on it. We are going to try to increase activity.

8. Are you accepting new users?
Yes, but I expect almost no real users joining (all have been bots up to this point). Join the Discord at this point of time, as thats where the active community is.

9. When does the site officially go offline?
Whenever Geoff pulls the plug, we haven’t an official date.

10. When does flash end?
Dec 31st, 2020. I expect Sploder will be shut down at that time or shortly there after.

I merged my thread and your thread together. No reason to have two threads of the same thing. Also, there isn't much to discuss about this topic. The forums are maintained, the discord is still there, and thats about it.

Hm. Yes, you're right.

But your post needs some editing. It still says some things like the forums aren't actively maintained (even though the title says they are).
