My favourite websites next to SPfreaks are SPLRA.org, Archive.org, SPFC.org and ThePumpkins.net. But the last one has been down already for a week with a message \"ThePumpkins.net. The site is down for maintenance.\". I do hope Murder McMurderson will come back soon with an even greater website! Go Murder go!

Welcome on board pierowmaniac. I’ve just send the administrator of ThePumpkins.net an email on behalf of the SPfreaks, asking him if he has news. Keep you posted.

Thank you, thank you… Maybe my ideas, but RedWolf builds it all, he spend quite some hours in this already… I’ll tell him, on behalf of you! See you around man! :D

No reply yet. Instead on my side the maintenance message has disappeared on http://www.thepumpkins.net and a standard IE error "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" appears. Pinging the website address returns "Ping request could not find host http://www.thepumpkins.net . Please check the name and try again.".

I’m getting very worried now. Being down for maintenance for 1 month now is… kinda long. Hopefully Murder got it all under control… and returns with his website soon.

is there a chat room here on this site? me, budspencer, believe, persianbellydancer, lynet, and dougydarkangel from over there are still trying to find a decent place to chat every day. hehe

Hey welcome here ghostchild1979! Sorry no chatroom here… We had been thinking about it, but this feature was never implemented, as we expected no users. We *vaguely* have a major update to a full CMS website in mind in 2008/2009, so we might reconsider this feature then. But we got other priorities now, as we are mainly running a graphical SP collectors website here… Hope you understand.

When you speak to persianbellydancer again soon, give her my warm regards! She contacted us a few times in the past, and she still has a few things to send us if I remember well… Maybe I’m wrong…

Anyway, it’s a shame that ThePumpkins.net disappeared. Wonderful website, great people on there. Of course they are all invited here, as this board is still small and cozy compared to Murder’s place, but I rather see ThePumpkins.net come back. Fingers crossed…

Have fun here in the meantime, ghostchild1979! 8)

Oh by the way, did you have trouble with that other account "ghostchild", can we delete it? Or are you going to use it after you activated it? We like to have an honest number of members on here… No pumped up figures! :D

people say i’m a funny guy.

i didn’t really like thepumpkins.net though. it was a nice site, but it had too many features, and that slowed everything down. and the conversations on the messageboard weren’t interesting to me.

Good luck Pete. Still I wonder why ThePumpkins.net disappeared without leaving a message. Was Murder fed up with the thing?

Since about 20 hours ThePumpkins.net is back online.

I’m going to be very critical about this, as the site is slow as ever, and only with some little changes to the forum (based on a quick look), and with loss of the funny smileys on there. No messages at all to the 1,000s of members, not before, nor after this long period. This is not the way how you treat people. Sorry Murder, just my humble opinion.

For the rest I’m very happy they’re back of course. After all it is a site that couldn’t be missed for tons of users.

i saw that, cause it said cult hero and it had your signature.

i saw that they were trying to do a survivor game like at the pumpkins.net, but a little diffrent.

why did it die?

I think they did some maintenance in 2006/7, which caused some problem with links that usually brought people to the board, even I lost the board for a few months, only got back to it after the admin sent out a mail telling of big changes and additions, none of which seem to be happening.
I think people (including the ppl running it) kinda just gave up on it.
It wasn’t ever all that busy, but it was a nice enough board.

It’s a pity, as I like the name "Nation Of Zeros", and I like the layout also. Reminds me of SPfreaks.com.
