Spinoffs

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 Sploder Forums was shut down, Brocky created a forum using CreateAForum that was a spinoff of Sploder Forums. It was shortlived and was succeeded by Sploder.tk.

Sploder.tk

Main article: Sploder.tk

Sploder.tk is a replica of the Sploder Community Forums that succeeded SploderDB. It is run by Sticki.
