The Sploder Community Forums (SCF) was an Internet forum for the Sploder Main Site.

Here you could create games, but instead socialize and talk with members. The Sploder Forum previously used Vanilla 1, a PHP and MySQL powered Forum application until it was replaced by the Simple Machines Forum (SMF) PHP application. The Sploder Forums shut down on August 5, 2018 due to a attack by a rogue admin, but was brought back up on December 30, 2018. However, it was deleted on January, 1 2021. The unofficial replacement for the Sploder Community Forums is the Nem-Creator forums, which is run by fans of Sploder[1].

Spinoffs

Nem-Creator Forums

The Nem-Creator forums is a replacement of the Sploder Forums that was created by the Sploder member Bricc.

Old Sploder Forums

After the Sploder Forums stopped using vanilla, some people were still nostalgic for the old forums software. As a result, many people created their own Sploder Sploder Forums that used Vanilla 1.0 and used the same theme as the vanilla Sploder Forums.

SploderDB

After the Sploder Forums was shut down, Brocky created a forum using CreateAForum. It was shortlived and was succeeded by Sploder.tk.

Sploder.tk

Main article: Sploder.tk

Sploder.tk was a replica of the Sploder Forums that succeeded SploderDB. It was run by Sticki. It was shutdown after the original forums was revived.
