Lmao, that was the funniest April Fool's joke I've experienced of the couple of years I've been on Newgrounds. It hit me like a train.

Was it april fools or not?

How can people still not be getting this... Seriously Tom CAN lie you know. I mean I might have bought this stuff for a little while if this was my first year at newgrounds. But 9 years on here and you quickly get used to the idea of a NG April Fools prank. (Made the account in 03 but i've been a part of NG since before Y2K.)

I can't believe people are posting in this thread who still think this is real. They even know that yesterday was April Fools and they're still not sure, how gullible can you get. Just because Tom posted it doesn't make it true.

Getting to the point where it's more depressing than funny.

lol that's why i thought this was going too far for one, as well as the edited words.....that really sucked. But the biggest BS that really pissed me off was the fact that they know we've been waiting for the chat lol. I think that the whole thing went too far.

i liked it at first but then i got annoyed cuz of chat and the word changing

Jeez some people just don't seems to get jokes, even if they are pretty obvious like this one...but seriously though, NG should be like that if it was to be approved by China :D

I am crackin up at all those posts and what they said beliving that yesterdays April Fool's prank was real! Really shows how gullible people can be, but then again it was a really well thought out and executed prank; especially when you made it so that certain words that could clue other people into the prank was automatically edited so gratz on the prank :D

I was joking around that people would take the change seriously. I'm sad to see that actually happened. There is no hope for the future. :P

Yay, I'm on it! I wonder how many are on part of the panel, anyway?

As many of you noticed, yesterday we tried to change Newgrounds to comply with Chinese regulations and get unblocked in China. While we felt the end result did a decent job at filtering the site, the Chinese government ultimately decided that NG was still a platform for too many ideas.

The freedom of expression! If only it was worldwide, no?

:To continue being unblocked, we would have to have shut down blogs, as well as close the Flash and Audio Portals.

I received hundreds of concerned PMs from users who did not approve of the changes.

There's a giant clash of opinions for you..
Well, China didn't work out. Oh well. Obviously without the flash and audio portal, NG wouldn't be what it is...And I'm sure without blogs the internet would probably not exist. XD
And how 'April' (fools) was changed to 'China' (rules)...that was hilarious! I received a PM from another user and could not understand half of it!
