It is slightly good because you can judge or vote for the movie fairly, I mean, you can watch the movie or play the game ahead. Some are tired to watch or play, so, they blam it.

I will admit that you made some legitimate (and oft repeated points); however, you presented none of the mentioned "facts [or] research". Instead, you based your entire post off of your personal experiences with friends. If you were to present a factual rational with your research methodology, then I would be much more likely to support this initiative. In its current state, it is an unacceptable attempt to boost ad revenue at the expense of the community.

The recommendations take up half the screen

I like it! I know this is just the beginning, which is what people seem to be forgetting. It's gonna improve, just give it some time. It seems like people are too afraid of change, which several people have pointed out. I mean, Wayne's World put it perfectly. The redesign, "It's like a new pair of underwear. At first it's constrictive, but after a while it becomes a part of you."

If there could be a way to return to the old layout through an account setting, I'd be much obliged. While it's kinda neat to watch large flash, I am really fond of the way the website came together after the last redesign and would like to be able to keep it that way.

Nice work on this, Guys! I Like how I'm able to look up comments and the info on the Videos when I use this! I'm not so sure if games would work for this, though... But it's a great Idea and Deserves a chance on Videos, in my Opinion!!!

thanks alot guys i hate it.

for flash that isn't wide screen, there way too much dead space.
loading the flash on the same page as the details uses a lot of extra space.
the increase of ads lag more.

I think the layout is ugly.
i hate the fact that i have to load every flash now, even if i just want to read the author comments and reviews first.

here's an idea bring back the play/watch button and have the flash viewing area collapsed with java script.

Load times on Newgrounds a respectablly fast right now.
With this new wide layout, the movie instantly starts loading, forcing the webpage to load 1/3 as quickly because it tries to load both things at once.

The bigger size and such is nice, but overall it's not helping a lot.
If there were a feature so that accounts can choose if they want to see it or not, then I'm sure there would be no problems!

I strongly second that. As it stands, this is the first real threat to my Newgrounds usage since I started coming here.

Sounds like someone is bitter that they made something crappy and got a poor review once or twice. Or maybe he just likes using all caps because it makes Utah seem less Mormon and more extreme? I actually, if you must know, open the multiple tabs at once so I can have them there in my browser throughout the day to go to and carefully watch/play and critically think about them before I consider how I will vote or review them. Even with YouTube, at least I can pause something if I don't want it to start playing... this new layout on NG leaves quite a bit to be desired in that realm for us casual users who can't devote time to all the stuff we want to see all at once. Not sure why you feel the need for all of the caps and complaining about me sharing my opinion in the forum, which I'm pretty sure is what we were asked to do in this thread, eh?

I personally liked the old layout better. It bugs me to see the animation page take up the whole screen. I also think that it looks a lot more neat with the white space (black space I guess) around the page.

The new additions are pretty nice though! Being able to darken and brighten the screen and enlarging the flash size for better viewing was a brilliant idea.

Great work with the site, keep it up.

I love the new layout! The extra options are fun to play around with and allow a user to customize their viewing to their preferences, it's so awesome!

The only thing I'd like to see is the vote box moved above the author info (or the option to do so somewhere). Not that author info isn't important (far, far, far from it), but some author info boxes get quite long (especially on collabs) and the vote box is always short and simple. To put it another way, the author info would never get spammed off the screen by the vote box.

Meh. I like the old layout better. I'd prefer to have a choice what layout is being used (say for example, have an options menu or something when accessing your account).

B-B-B-BUT MY 46X46 ICON THAT TOOK ME TWO SECONDS TO SCREENSHOT OUT OF MY FLASH AND RESIZE IS G-G-G-GONE!

I take serious pride in creating my 46x46 icon. I know you still need them for collection pages, front-page featuring, and mouse-hovers in the portal list. But I will not stand for them being removed from the view page.

It's been a fantastic seven years NG but you really pulled a fast one on me here; I know when to take a hint. I suggest you delete my posts, reviews, flash submissions, and account itself. I'll have no traces of my name on this trash heap of html code you call a website.
