Just a heads up everyone,

As many of you know, I've also ran SpudFiles sister site, Theopia. It's a forum for just general chat.

Unfortunately there was never too much interest in Theopia, and it has become overrun by SPAM.

For now, I have shutdown Theopia due to lack of interest. It was a great test project area, which is how it started, but I need to focus on SpudFiles and only SpudFiles with my limited time.

Don't worry, SpudFiles isn't going anywhere and I haven't forgotten about you :D :D :D
Yes, I am the guy that owns & operates SpudFiles (along with our extremely helpful moderators).

I never joined Theopia, to be honest most of my off-topic needs are satisfied by the off-topic thread :D

I kept poking my head in there and trying to bring things up occasionally. I think it just never had a user base of more than 10-15 active people at a time, and most of those people had other forums with bigger user bases that were easier to get responses on.

PCGuy, I had actually logged on today with the intention of sending you a PM suggesting you might retire the site honorably rather than let it be a training ground for spammers. Guess you were one step ahead of me.

Theopia was a good testbed, though I rarely checked it anymore due to lack of goof-off time. A forum about general chatting is kinda hard to start up, since there are so many big ones out there already. Spudfiles however is rather unique, and has had success in the same way that 4HV, Pulse-jets, RS and others have.

I was kinda wondering about the phpbb3 thing the other day though. I'm not going to ask for any dates, but how is the general conversion working out?
I know the default theme is no longer going to be daj glass, but are you going to run any of the future ones by us, or just go for it and hope everyone approves?
The "Spudfiles Direction" thread could probably use a kick-up if you want to give us a lists of features and modifications you're looking at. Normally it's good to have community discussion on this sort of stuff.

Also do you have a banner? I know a few of us could help out there, especially if you were thinking of something CAD-ish like the current one.
And I demand that the blue smiley potato icon be kept, lest I shall add much additional content to the wiki in the form of blatant innuendos involving piston,s breach loading mechanisms and three way valves

I was a member, but didn't log on do often due to the lack of new threads. Any chance of opening up the off topic section a bit more so we have more than one thread. No to turn it into a forum for like a 100 random topics about Call of Duty, but maybe like a single topic for a single hobby. Just to organize things a bit more.
That is all.

Hey Guys my name is Mark.I think that this is a wise decision and a excellent analyze website and also a great community for gain much information and shares a lot of stuff. I think there is no more attention other than spamming on theopia. Thanks!!
