Wait, the meet is on the 17th? I thought it was on the 20th or something, I can probably go now!

Those meetups all sound great, I've read through two whole meetup threads and looked through all the images from one of them, probably number two since it consisted entirely of Flash Regs. If I'm still on the site in four or five years then I'll make sure I turn up to a meet, it should be easy since I live in London, only half an hour away from the Eye.

Also, I think Luis' new sig pushed the Solardave sig trend that bit further, it's really kicking off now, after about a month of just having Poozy and Dave with one.

Facebook will be #1 for at least a few years. Getting on the Facebook train sooner rather than later is a good idea.

Anyway the meet, will be there again : D The magnitude of this one scares me, I hope Namco can accommodate the masses of Tom's followers that'll be coming.

Yeah, it's a bummer. I think we'll need to update the staff page as a result...

Well, but when we kinda think about it...

Is there gonna be a Shapes collection page? We can also throw in the good non-fad submissions involving shapes.

See you there Cap'n Fulp.

Looking at the attendees list for this year's meet, it looks like it's shaping up to be a good one.

I'm waiting 'till I'm 18 to attend a meetup, so as not to spoil your drinking fun by having a sober kid there.

Well, it's funny, but as all of those fashions seem to have spreaded like a virus on over 99.9% of the people's minds, and they seem to be there forever, Newgrounds is the only page I know that has always the same quantity of users, and maybe even more, hey, that's why we love it!

Let's just hope NG doesn't get flooded with noobs that like to upload pics of themselves every 0,2 seconds like those pages, or it will be banhammer time!

The way I see it, there are lots of people on those sites who have been familiar or have been fans of Newgrounds at one time or another, so if we can get in their faces with reminders of new submissions on NG, they might come back around more often to check up on things.

*Sigh*

I'm not cool enough to go to london just yet. I couldn't go this year anyway because I have no money and school is in the way. But maybe next year.

You said something about a cam. Is there gonna be one and when do you think it should be set up?


Huh?

You do realise that the forum has but a fraction of newgrounds traffic? and if people upload pics on their userpages, well you don't have to visit them ya know :)
the forum may bee somewhat the pulse of ng, again, it's nothing compared to the around 600'000 unique hits NG frontpage gets daily (correct the numbers if I'm wrong). :)

also, the noobs who approach the forums should be met with open arms, since they're bold enough to venture such a dangerous place, often without the help of kittens. also, the bigger the community the better - OR MAYEGBE IT WUS SO MUHC BETTAH LIEK WHN I SIGND UPP LKEI A YER AGO, MAN BBS TOATLY TURD TO SHIT IMMA LEEV NG FOREVA CAS IT SUKS NAO KBAY!1

I noticed alot of typos on the NG Tank description such as still instead of steal and something about from him to live on instead of for him to live on


For my next trick, I will need a condom and a volunteer.

Well, I actually believe the bigger the community the more chances that mentally retarded noobs sign up, seriously, unnecesary example

But the arguement over how noobs should be greeted with open arms made me laugh, I remember when I used my old account which I don´t even remember now, let's just say I had a bad experience with bigbadron... so much dirty vocabulary... only to lock a thread... I had to go to a psicologist...
