what happened to the love? there used to be all these great things submitted to newgrounds but now....junk is being submitted daily! I mean sure every once and a while there is a great thing submitted, but that doesnt make up for all the junk that is submitted every day.

Ive only had a grounds gold account for a few months but i have had to watch a lot sucky submissions lately (no offence to those artists)

I watched flash submissions before my grounds gold account and they were way better than a lot being submitted now.

so again, where did the love go?

There is still about the same amount of good ones, there are just bad ones now too. It doesn't really matter since you just get more blam and protect points. After all, the animators aren't getting worse. Right?

More people means more submissions. Newgrounds grows daily, and so does the shit.

Newgrounds needs a hard-core enema. Or, like, a Newgrounds Pro Portal. that'd be tits. Only super quality submissions could go through the Pro Portal.

IT COULD BE LIKE SEGREGATION, AND THAT'S ALWAYS FUN!

thats where flash portal-PRO comes in,- so that it can separate the things worth watching and the crap in the toilet that needs to be flushed down.

Everyone who agrees with the flash pro portal idea should help keep this topic on the top! Maybe it will actually turn into something!

There has been much more spam lately. Usually, the daily 5 awards were all 4's or high 3's, but now most are in the 3's

they should just raise the under-judge limit to 2.3 or so to pass....that would effectively remove the worst crap, and still give the noobs a chance.

Why not just be able to filter results by rating?

umm if you didn't know there already is a rating system for the portal. its just that the bar is so low that even crap gets in.

Fuck that, newgrounds has always been like this. Get used to it. There'll be waves of shitty stuff when all the little kids have a ton of free time, but there'll be gold in there as well. You gotta dig around, you've always had to.


always behind schedule.

Yeah. There are good submissions still. But the pro-portal will separate it! So the digging wont be quite as bad.

More crap is the sign of a growing community. Theres still great artists out there, but theres more and more people who don't know how to use flash that sign up daily. Every beginner thinks that their flash is good even if it isn't, which is why they submit it to the portal.

It's funny how only the newer guys are liking the ProPortal idea.

Forget it people, that would be absolutely horrible for new flash authors. Being one of intermediate skill, I know how hard it is to work your way out of being a "noob". I know what it's like when somebody says your shit sucks without giving any reason. I KNOW, what it's like to have a flash blammed. However, that was just about one of the greatest things that has ever happened to me, as it showed that I won't be good with this shite so I improved.

As stated, Newgrounds is growing, we can't stop it, we can't help it. I'm just not sure if it's good or bad. More users means more people making flash. Thus, amount submitted is uped. But the average age of flashists is decreasing. I used to love the idea of young people like me learning what flash is and how to use it, but their personalities are pathetic. They can't cope with criticism no matter how constructive. It's sad. I'd rather older authors now. Their humor is funnier to me and includes less "LOL MARIO BLOPPERZ" and less random humor of which is just their own inside jokes. If they find one thing they heard to be hilarious, there's a good chance we won't catch on.

Gold, is still being made. There's just more shite to dig through now.

One last thing, this does not belong in the flash Forums.

I usually frequent the VG and collaboration Forums. If you find me anywhere else, I'm lost and can't find my way back.

Personally, I think that people nowadays have forgotten how difficult stuff like flash movies, animations and comics can be. Hell, alot of the kids at my art college came here thinking that it is the most easiest job to do, thinking that they could just draw a face and they instantly get their diploma. This is not a job for the weak hearted, it takes alot of planning, patience, practice, and takes away so much of your time. Not to mention people expect more from artists now that technology like photoshop and Corel Painter have been developed. So if the piece isnt moving or visually pretty they toss them on their ass.

I would not worry about the noobs, reality will bite them in the ass just like it did to all of us; and when that happens, they will either try to do better or give up. The love is still there, you just have to find it.
