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!
