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.

not really.. if, by prank, you mean a trick designed to fool viewers
This more of a satire against censorship, which is funny considering Newgrounds censors stuff they don't like. but whatever.
to bad we were blocked again.. i was getting used to it...
and i liked the new members a lot, i keel we communicate well between each other
America we beilive in the freedom of speech, in all its forms
wow... that phrase touch me... in fact... i liked it so much...
because i'm not 'american'
i kinda interesting to see that all the ppl on the United States are so... patriotic
anyway yesterday was pretty funny... i had never poste4d so much on ppl profiles... was a great idea Tom... hope next years is equal great
Wow, hey anyone that said that did you know what day it was. Did you remember Pico 2. NEWS FLASH APRIL FOOLS DUMB @$$ES. Any way good job Tom I liked the joke. Just make shure it stays a joke
Or for yesterday IMAHFIRENMAHMAO
Ah well, at least the censor's off and no more red chinese eye-hurting skins! :D
Arguing on the Internet is like competing in the special olympics. Even if you win, you're still retarded.
I can not believe that people said stuff like that. What was yesterday? April first aka April Fool's Day. This was obviously an april fool's joke and people took it way to seriously.
Soon to be master of pivot
that'l show the commie's!!!!>:3
BTW WE NEED A NEW SMILEY CALLED "MANIACLE"
IT A FUSION BETWEEN HAPPY AND MAD AS HELL
Lol, I can say that I fell for it. Well, in a positive way. I was actually happy that China got "un-blocked." At least I wasn't one of those people who took this stuff really seriously and bitched about it. They uber failed.
But of course, it just so happened that Newgrounds gets un-blocked on April 1st. I almost believed this was true, right until I saw the level icons, the review filter (it would change the wording so that it sounded "Asian" lol), and thread mood smilies that all had the stereotypical squinted eyes. If you were to actually make the site approvable to the Chinese for their people to visit, you wouldn't have put all those extra little things that were pretty much inappropriate. So all the people who took this the wrong way and really bitched about it are totally blind. If only they actually looked at all the things that were out of place.. the fact that it was on April 1st should've been the biggest hint lol.
But good job on the prank. I pretty much woke up my parents laughing at all the little changes I noticed. Good fun :D
how can people be so stupid as to not look at a calendar?

My personal favourite was what they did to the medals.
GLORY AND HONOR IS IT'S OWN REWARD
Even I, the rampant complainer and patriot that I am, was not stupid enough to think you suddenly became a supporter of communist chinese government on april 1st. It was annoying though, the site wouldn't work on my day off.
by the way, mr super smart genius who was mocking the guy who got upset, thinking it ironic that an american who supports freedom of speech would be against chinese government, you are the fool. If the guy believed it, for whatever reason, it was his duty to protest against the absolute abhorent suppression of free speech that chinese influence has. Your rights end where mine begin, and telling you to shut the heck up if you are supporting suppressing my rights is not an ironic suppression of your free speech.
tom if you do this u r crazy. newgrounds is perfect as it is who cares bout the chineses were fine and there just gunna post stupid crap and stuff we cant read
Wow, i completely forgot that yesterday was april fool's day, and it was even my cousin's birthday...
that was the darkest april fools joke I have ever seen. D: It got me very angry I dont like chinese government.

Holy shit that's great! Newgrounds is the largest community of brain-damaged children!
So, just an observation...did anyone else notice that a lot of the people who left their little rants had horrible grammar? How is anyone supposed to take you seriously if you speak like a cave man?
Just saying :P
Anyways, awesome April fools joke lol, got me!
I still can't believe how many people couldn't figure out it was an April Fool's Day Joke/Intelligent and well thought out commentary on the state of free speach in China and around the world. More than anything, it was a stern reminder of how lucky we all are to have the rights that we do, and whether there is value in a person (or corporation... Ex. Google) that sacrifices those rights and values for the sake of profit. Stellar job Tom.
Ah, funny messages!
The sig that I'm wearin? Awesomely made by Skaren!
Also, I like annoying Americans by calling English football "real football" and American football "rugby".-Lost-Chances
Well, I guess we can say that that idea just got owned, and then teabagged. Thank you newgrounds, I was worried we had lost you. Its bad enough with youtube starting to censor stuff too much. I would definitly leave newgrounds if that stayed. Is that what its really like for china? holy shit thats scary.
