Yeah, I already knew you used that one.
Since it's fairly new, registered in the "Most Popular Mods" section, and has an active thread, these usually contribute to newer members/users selecting the mod in their early introduction to portals. Similar to how you'd find the more recent of mods used, when there is an earlier/similar one.
This is my opinion only :)

As already stated many times by many members, its personal choice :)

I used TP for a bit. It has some nice features, and I love Bloc themes, but as SP has emerged, I like its end user layout 10x better. Also my users seem to be more receptive to it.

I don't like to say one if better than the other, but rather that they are different with a different purpose. Use the one that best fits your needs.

I have only use TinyPortal so I am going to have to say TinyPortal.

I am currently using SP and haven't tested TP. I think that since my forum is in beta 4 mode, I will not be making any major changes. I plan to start a new forum in the near future and will probably check out TP to see what it's like.

I really like SP because it seems to be very simple to configure and offers a lot of features.

That doesn't make sense. You can't say you prefer Tinyportal if you haven't tried SP.

Sure I can. I don't use the portal really anymore so I don't really care.

personally i dont see myself  using a portal again -

ive tried both TP & SP and had problems with both -

1 in perticular flooded my site with errors and was told the version had issues and an update was released to deal with it but upon trying to uninstall it it screwed my site up as it only part uninstalled and when i used the portals support site the only help i got was being given the wrong instructions to uninstall which wasnt very helpfull and when i asked for more help i gave up after a couple weeks of waiting, in the meantime my site was a mess and in the end i had to overwrite my files...... im not that bothered by bit work but for the complete lack of worthwhile support leaves me wary to ever use a portal again

For any mod installation, specially big mods (but you never know), it might be useful to keep in mind that SMF is always making a backup of your core files before installing it, in ./Packages/backup folder. So if things really go wrong, one can always overwrite the current files with those from the backup.

Back on topic: nice to see the votes show them still keeping close!
To-do lists are for deferral. The more things you write down the later they're done... until you have 100s of lists of things you don't do.
