To continue being unblocked, we would have to have shut down blogs, as well as close the Flash and Audio Portals. While this was tempting, we decided it would be too drastic of a change
Temping my ass Tom! What the fuck is New Grounds without a fucking flash portal? A shitty BBS community? Incase this is news to you, China is a communist government, which would mean no freedom of speech which would be retarded.
Good riddance chinks'.
Lol, the China theme was a bit scary at first and it was funny how words like "movie" and "game" was either "physical" or "mental exercise" and "Tom" was "Chairman Fulp" It was a nice small change but you could not see any Mature flashes like my favorite the Madness series and I was pissed but I knew it was temporary. It was fun while it lasted, poor China does know what it is missing, but alas fare thee well...
(The Serious Asian Man leveling system was genius!!!)
I cant understand HOW people fell for it... It was April Fool's Day. WASNT IT BLATANTLY OBVIOUS? I guess people are used to being spoonfed the correct information (thanks Wiki :L) so theyd need a nice big 'WARNING - THIS IS AN APRIL FOOLS JOKE - DO NOT TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY'
...Even then.. some people still wouldnt cop it...
I actually frikkin belied that bullcrap about the unblock... i cudn't see egoraptor:(
I am seriously considering writing all of my blog entries in ENCRYPTED CODES from now on. It appears to have worked, although the next time, it will be neccessary to take down the censors through means of illicit programming.
The will to dismantle the the Great Firewall of China has been enbolden by this social experiement.
The future of this website will depend on whether or not we can take down the barriers that prevent our freedom of expression.
you put a thing of tiananmen square smack dab on the front page.... you do know that anything related to tiananmen square is blocked
Thanks for bringing this back. I hate the filtering... can't play any brutal games & movies.
And uh... china sucks.
If it had gone past today THEN i would have been worried because I think at least HALF of newgrounds knew that it was an April fools gig
I admit. The skin looked freakin awesome. And it was fun getting past the filters. Falcon pawnched the Commyblock, I did.

It would be sad if half of the people here actually fell for it...
Cool i was beggining to think that this was never going to be again the same newgrounds i first knew long live Tom Fulp
Oh, Tom, I haven't forgotten about Pico Day, however, I fear the animation I made won't make it. Forgive me.
I disappoint you and you the spawn that will become Dynast-King.
woah, seriously. they didnt sell out or anything. if you read their post before, theyve been trying to get to china for a while. aside from that, making money WHILE getting more viewers isn't wrong. he didn't abandon us or ditch us. he didnt block the US. We are just including more people. Is that so wrong? If you were in china, wouldnt you want to view this site?
For everyone that worked so hard to put on the truly EPIC April fools day joke, you are my heroes!
I know that was no easy task.
It is really interesting that so many people believed that the site makeover was here to stay, and that there were so many negative responses.
However this is the gift that keeps on giving. Not to turn this into a political rant... I'm really shocked at the responses and some of the comments that were made.
People giving the honest appearance that they really care for this country and our respective rights it almost inspires hope.
Once again awesome joke!
And for the people that thought the "government approved" makeover was bad... that is nothing... Have a look at congress and all the bills they have on the table.
Now that is something to be truly concerned about.
I won't say it wasn't annoying. But the idea that there were people that didn't realize all of this crazy bullcrap was put through on APRIL 1ST and decided to take it seriously is honestly funny enough to justify it in my opinion.
