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!

Shows how intelligent people who live in countries with freedom of speech and who follow capitolism really are ;)
But seriously, good prank. Can't believe some people fell for it. Great fucking effort though. Skins, word filters, everythign was really well set up. I really appreciate the time and dedication you guys put into that. Most pranks are pretty lazy, but this was really all encompasing.
Is everyone fucking retarded? Yesterday during the "China Unblocked" fiasco, did no one think to themselves "Hey, its April Fools Day! Wow Tom you really got me! Good one!" ? Everyone who actually got upset at the hysterical joke Tom was playing on us all should shut the fuck up and suck a dick.
Thank you Tom for all the good times

Wow, really? You are one intelligent and observant 13 year old.
someone kill me now.
Lmao. I was worried for about two seconds that this was going to last all week or something, and then I noticed the date and it all clicked. Damn that was a pain in the ass, I was without gore for a whole day.
I know I'm probably gonna get chewed out for this one, but I figured I'd put it down.
Comunism works....on paper, of course. Can't blame people for believing in something that has good intentions, thats all I'm saying. not to mention the fact that most don't know much about any other choices.
okay, I'm done.
please don't do that again
WOW, I never thought people would buy that! I mean, come on....on April 1st, the entire site just HAPPENS to change to a very stereotypical and occasionally borderline racist layout? Personally, I died laughing when I got onto the website, so good job Tom and company, that was pretty epic
poor kids cant take jokes on newgrounds. if you cant take a joke, then you shouldnt be here... right? RIGHT!!

that was a good April Fools joke, I nearly went insane because I was too tired to understand wtf was going on.
oh..oh..oh this SSSSOOOO happenned to be on april first (when you china up the place)
now april 2nd you got re-block.......THAT WAS ONE HELL OF A APIRL FOOOL'S JOKE!!! XD
man i could go for a burgar right now :/
Nice joke, guys, but the fact still remains that I couldn't get help on the forums for a full day. All's well that ends well, I guess, but that's a whole day that I could have used to work on my game, and I'll never get it back. Not to mention I'm on a time limit here with the trial version of flash, so it's even more important that I get this done quickly. You stole a whole day from me, guys, I want it back! This year's Pico day better make up for this.
Well Tom, judging by some of the replies in this thread your baby is already smarter than a large portion of Newgrounds already.
Word to your mother
on the positive i thought it was a good initiative to make us notice how lucky we are to have freedom of speech here. It was also a very clever april's fool trick. On the negative not being able to access the site properly for a day was lame. aaaarrrgh Chairman Fulp!!!!!!
