that Spudtech started a new forum? There doesnt seem to be many members as of yet, but I just wanted to get the word out there. I noticed like a month ago, however, I forgot to post it on here. By no means am I trying to lead people away from Spudfiles, I just wanted to get the word out that there is another forum out there! :director: The link is listed below if interested!!

I have seen it. Is it worth joining at all or should I just stay on spudfiles? And what is the benefit of joining.

The current owner of Spudtech appears to be unaware of the changes in the hobby since the SGTC forum went offline - he actually criticized someone for posting about the use of lead projectiles :lol:

The forum appears to be dead at the moment, and it isn't looking like it will attract any results we'd be interested in - it's just too far behind.

EDIT: "fixed" the link :roll:

There once was a day where that was the real place to be. Bullshit posts were not tolerated. SpudTech taught me pretty much everything I know about this stuff.

I'd really like to see SpudFiles turn into what SpudTech was. Where's DR when you need him?

Banned. He literally went nuts and spammed the forum so PCGUY had to ban him. I can't remember exactly why but I was involved somehow. I think I told him to stop flaming members because he's not a mod (and even if he were a mod, the crap he was saying to young people was definitely not acceptable—it put pimpmann22's flaming to shame). That's when he started spamming the forum, possibly even with topics directed at me, so PCGUY banned him.

Don't get me wrong, some of this forum's members have needed a good flame every now and then and I've done my fair share of it. But i'm of the opinion that you shouldn't insult members so much that they want to leave the forum. I remember the DR from SpudTech but once he lost his marbles, he really didn't seem like the same person.

_____
I was a member of SpudTech for a year or so I think. It was a good place to be and at the time Spudfiles hadn't quite matched it but I always felt out of place there. Then again, I was 13/14 at the time so I wasn't exactly the most mature member. If it was still around and similar to how it used to be, I would probably enjoy it a lot more than I did back in 05/06.

There was a time.

I stayed away from Spudfiles when Spudtech was in its heyday, I liked the fact that only members could view the forum and there was much less tolerance for annoying teenagers.

Having said that, Spudfiles has come a l-o-o-o-o-o-ng way since then (5 years ago!) and I don't see it losing dominance any time soon.

Was I complaining about annoying teenagers just now :D

Pour moi les 2 meilleurs sont Spudfiles et patator.frbb.net en France.

I'm not sure if that is a statement that you can simply blow off with thank you.

You guys just don't understand... It was before your time though, so I wouldn't expect you to.

See how SpudTech looks now? Black color scheme and the empty of intelligence? That's how SpudFiles used to be. It was a dark place, literally and figuratively.

And SpudTech was opposite. It was what SpudFiles now pretty much is. Pleasent colors, and interesting topics and people. And LOTS of it.

I really just miss those nights of being able to put post after post with people. It's gotten really slow these days. It's rather boring.

And not that you guys suck or anything, but I really miss a lot of those people who have disappeared through the years.

@sgort It probably was awesome and a good site I wish I had the chance to see it but my introduction to the hobby was only a little over a year ago
