Have I missed something? What happened to the 100 bucks?

I thought it was a good game and should deserve more for 20.something MB of hard work. I think that the reason that portal defenders was on the front page for a long time, longer than sonny 2, was because it was staff-made... No... don't bann me... pweease...

Sonny 2 got knocked off the front page like everything else did on Pico Day, but it went back up after Pico Day.

OKay I thought of something to post about!

The China Rules day suprise was like the most fun I had on NG in a long time! I added like 4 movies to my favorites! Lots of small timers made projects just for the occasion, and everyone was either in on the joke or being a retard and complaining. :)))))))))

I think next year for Pico Day the submissions should be aloud to enter Portal within the week of the 30th, not just on that day. Last years Pico Day seemed more festive than this years... I think it's because the entries came in from around the start of the month to the end of it.

Charlie the Unicorn won first,.... I could have sworn it would be Harry Again...

Rev Share is the coolest idea NG has come up with yet! I know I always say this, but I CAN'T WAIT TO START MAKING FLASH!

My old computer broke down, WITH A NEARLY FINISHED PROJECT SWF!!! I
Here's half of my completed project.

I have a LapTop now, but I need to get flash for it :((((((

Also I am getting to Voice acting startiing next week.

Actually we do still advertise $100 for the voter of the month so we'll still do that.

Could someone explain the voting point system? I don't think I've ever read the details of it in a Faq anywhere.

Does the number ranking I assign to my votes matter or is it more like a point is assigned to each movie I give a vote for system?

In previous months I actually tried to roughly vote for movies in the order I thought they should be placed since I wasn't really sure. It's a pain in the ass because once you vote for a movie it's really hard to shift the place up without resetting the votes.

As to the winners, I guess I tend to vote for movies that I care about more than the movies I think are better quality. Still congratulations to the winners. This month was absolutely stacked with quality submissions.

Am I the only one who kinda disagree's with Charlie The Unicorn being first? I mean yea, it was SOMEWHAT humorous, but the animation was extremly lacking, compared to alot of the other candidates.

I don't think there is. Since it's a huge fricking list of animations and games in a random order, it'd be too much of a hassle to go back and forth to pick particular favourites. I generally go from top to bottom then scroll back up to make up the numbers.

Tom, I never got the actual payment from last month's winnings. I got my store credit things, but that was it.

Something up?

OMG! Charlie and the Unicorn is the biggest piece of crap on newgrounds. I understand it can be a bit funny but the animation is garbage!

You make the whole thing sound so... hip?

the Behemoth / Newgrounds booth at Comic-Con in San Diego on July 23-26.

Well, it looks like I won't be there this year. I'd love to go in 2010, but for now I can watch the action via webcam again. It's almost as fun, especially with all the people to chat to.

I'm putting together a crazy idea that I'll be pitching to everyone later this week!

Well, I'd love to hear it. By the way, it seems that you have rejected medals for my game. Is it because I should wait for it to become public, are you a busy man at the moment, or do you not care that much?

I'm pretty sure you don't win cash any more you just win store credit... the whole point of the new REVENUE thing is to make it so you don't have to WIN money you earn it by contributing to the community more often... right guys? lol
