I find this to be very homosexual, and I mean that in the most negative way possible. On own my private grading scale, I would give it a mere two units out of ten possible total units.

It looks amazing Tom, but I always loved the simplicity and quickness of viewing Flashes in the past. This new redesign is even slow on my computer that has fairly good specs and FireFox being the browser of choice, and I can only imagine the horror of the slowness of machines with even worse specs and using IE, as most morons use. So may I suggest adding a button that switches between the old and new layout, or maybe an option in the user settings to have it permanently set to the desired design of choice. Either that or figure out a way to make it more snappy (I know its easier to say than actually do but I got fate in you and Rob).

Whoopty-fuckin-doo. (siriously, though, it's great)

The "Related Content" info needs to re-populate with proper results. Until then you will see a lot of content that doesn't feel very related... The end result should be much better.

It better be.... ...BITCH!

If you want to test the "Max Size" button, which makes Flash fill the width of the layout, try it on
these!

HAHAHA UR BUTTONS HAVE BEEN REDUCED TO SLIMY TEXT HAHAHA.

You can still open Flash in a pop-up as well, and the moon icon dims the lights, like the lightbox layout we had before this.

Tehnkyou kindleh.

Give it a minute to soak in and let us know if anything is totally broken.

Nothing's broken.

the "wide layout" should be an OPTION, not shoved down our throats... kinda like youtube does with the HD button... i don't like it one bit... ok, so maybe a bit... : P i feel bad for people with slow connections though...

If you didn't fully read Tom's post, please do. However, I'll say this:

the suggested content is kinda skewed at the moment, but it's being updated as I write this up (it'll take a few hours). Eventually, all suggested content will be of the same type and suitability - so if you land on a game that's suitable for everyone, the suggested content that falls to the right or below what you're playing will be of the same suitability (and will be games, rather than a mixture of games and movies)... thus negating the reason for putting suitability against the suggested content.

Furthermore, "shock" flashes that are inappropriately categorised are unlikely to show up in any of those lists in the first place.

In other words, don't worry about it too much.

Um...yeah. I liked how simple it was before. Where you could click "Watch this movie!" or "Play this game!"

I can deal with this new layout but there either needs to be an on/ off switch, or have a "Watch this movie" button that goes INTO the wide screen mode.

I like to see who made the flash and all that at the top left. Now it seems cluttered, messy, and unorganized.

If you want Newgrounds to keep it's crisp design, I recommend fixing up this update. Hopefully it's just a beta.

Tom, I'll be honest, I don't like it. It's just messes up the visual appeal, makes it look ugly and blocky.
Please, change it back to normal, or at least give us a choice.

When the "Related Content" feature does operate properly, what will determine what appears within this feature?

The same.

Also, in the wide layout, detail about ratings isn't displayed.
It looks a little wonky, too, since the banner is being stretched out, when you transition from a normal page to a wide layout one.

I brought this up with Goldfish the other day. Apparently, Safari doesn't do as other browsers do - where, when a popup is attempted to be opened, it doesn't give you any notification about it. It just doesn't do it, period. Unless we missed something, which is possible, it's been a frantic few days.

It's looking pretty good, but I have a suggestion.

In the Member Account settings, why not have a layout preference setting, so those who liked the old layout are able to switch back and forth between the two if they wish.

Don't get me wrong, the new layout is awesome, but there's just something about the old layout that makes me feel warm and fuzzy on the inside. :3

I'm seriously hoping this is a beta, and also, I believe I've found the first glitch, the button I've highlighted below doesn't do anything for me...

Alrighty... The wide layout has launched!

The "Related Content" info needs to re-populate with proper results. Until then you will see a lot of content that doesn't feel very related... The end result should be much better.

If you want to test the "Max Size" button, which makes Flash fill the width of the layout, try it on these!
