Finally, a release! This project was started back in June/July, but was put off for WAY too long. We put a lot of effort into this release, from using new encoding methods (still xvid-avi) to make the video look better, to using new typesetting for things like the name boxes.
To compliment this release, I am going to announce another project we've been working on over the past week: 252! This episode has already been translated by one of our new translators, Dany, and timed by our new timer, Leet_Gaara (so, it's in editing now). Look forward to it after 232 (which should be out within the coming weeks), and 233-234! From now on, I'll probably keep it to five announced episodes at a time. Why? Cause I can. =P
We're also looking for experienced editors, timers, and typesetters to help speed up our releases. Send a PM via the forums or IRC to Zdm321 if you're interested!

Speaking about the plot I have a question that is kinda related to that. I watch Conan in order, so I watched up to 216. Are there any spoilers in OVA 9 or can I watch it without being spoiled anything?
The only real notable ones that you're missing out on, Kienai has announced that they're doing. In fact, 269-270 is one of those, and will apparently be released during the Christmas Break. The other case, 289-290, should also be coming out soon.
Not really. Most of the unsubbed episodes are either AOs (so no plot development at all), or are manga cases with not much importance to the overall plot. Should be fine with skipping the unsubbed episodes.
