Thanks for stealing my screen shot Tom!! Haha now I feel proud.

I really laughed my ass off at all those idiot comments. I think they're much better than all the hate mail you put into the lit section. It's just insane the gullibility of some people...

Greatest April Fool's joke...Although it just got annoying and started to piss me off 5 minutes later.

To be honest, I liked the whole Chinese lay-out, at least it had the NG chat.

This one STILL doesn't have it. I demand it!


To post or not to post, that's the question.

Lol. It appears as though no one can take a good April Fool's joke (the joke being the Chinese layout). I mean, you actually think that, even with those revisions, China would unblock the site? Ha, guess again. Also, to those who called Tom a "sellout": REALLY!? He's trying to earn an honest buck. Go diversify yourselves, for crying out loud. Newgrounds is "Everything, by Everyone" -- and "for Everyone", in my opinion.

Best April Fools joke EVER.

"Chinagrounds" was freakin' hilarious! I actually believed the whole "unblocked in China" thing for a minute before searching around the site and laughing my head off! The fake user accounts were REALLY funny!

This is what makes Newgrounds so great. "Chairman Fulp" and the rest of the NG staff dare to do things that you'd probably NEVER see on any other website. So I'd just like to say thanks to the NG staff. Thanks for being AWESOME!

Well anyway, I'm gonna go watch some mental exercise, maybe play some physical exercise and then go revolutionize my girlfriend. :P

Best April fools for NG yet! I hope you can compete with that next year.
Some funny-as response PM's aswell :) Made me laugh quite a bit.

Checked out that "8-bit Waterslide In Real LIfe" Barclaycard competition submission. It was really well done, if anyone reading this hasn't watched it, GO WATCH IT!

It's Newgrounds way of filtering out the dumbasses. After today, the average IQ on Newgrounds will raise almost 100% because all the dumb people have left.

LMAO.. So yesterday was literally just a joke. The one thing I don't get is that F-777 lives in China, but he submits regularly to Newgrounds.

Wow, I didnt even think about the april fools thing....and also what I really didnt get was the whole "physical exercise" thing. All in all that was really funny to me not only because I didnt know what the hell was going on, but that I thought it was temporary anyways..hehe!

it was kinda funny the way you couldn't see anything that was rated 13+ or higher.
and the chat where it says your message is being processed. XD
