Hey Tom, I'm getting these strange looking boxes appear top and bottom right of my screen. They are not huge but I just thought I would point them out because I have no idea what they are!

So wait.... You come to a site that's funded by ads, block those ads and then expect that site to expend its resources on finding workarounds to accommodate your habits? I sincerely hope you're joking.

Ok, I was using the Safari beta, my other problem is now fixed, just switched to Firefox...

But on the old system, I was still able to hit Pop-Up and open it in Safari...

But why doesn't the closing of the pop-up window make the "new" light-box respond?

Seems it's because some Firefox Addons to block Image and Flash Ad adverts.

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.

hmm ya dechecking block popups makes it show up right... wonder why it blocks this one but not the old one

this actually makes we want to stop making flash.

the icons have became pointless for the flash artist

and it looks overall thrown together and shit.

please for the sake of flash movie makers change it back.

No offense, I know you guys probably put a good bit of work in it, but you really should have an option for pop-up without it automatically loading that flash. The previous version was far superior to this.

I love the idea of the new wide layout and the related content being right where you can see it. It's a good improvement. Only one thing, I feel its pretty important to see what the flashes are rated for like violence, adult themes, etc. Because I monitor what my younger sister watches and that plays a big part in what I let her see. Plus I think it is important in general to know what you are getting yourself into before you watch the movie. It seems like a small difference now but I remember when Flashplayer updated their layout and changed their website to animationarcade they too got rid of the rating system. I think that is about the time I made a full fledge switch to newgrounds which I am very happy I did. (Thank god I found Newgrounds) Anyways I hope you take this into consideration as I know I am not the only person who thinks this. Thank you.

I agree with this complaint. I love the idea of making icons. I mean if Im going to actually make something 46 x 46 I'd like people to see it! It's part of the reason people click them!

Icons still appear to be in use when you mouse over the videos' names.


Thanks aplenty to Phobotech for the great user icon.

Hmm, I don't really like the new layout. It's really bad for old computers like mine and creates a lot of lag. Maybe put in a option for the new layout in My Account?

I don't care for this at all. I wish you could give us an option to stick with the old style layout. The flash pages look so messed up now.

oh yeah I didn't even notice that aspect of it either. The icons are the most important and effective way to advertise your flash. This idea is good but it needs improvement.

-Change the icons back
-Please change the ratings system back to normal.

Other than that it seems great.

When i saw the new layout, I tought that something was wrong or that the portal was broken, but it was something worse than a broken portal, i was a change, and seriously guys, i realy didnt liked that.
It looked better before.

Well, that what i think.

I think the last layout was BETTER.

Weird thing is, I don't even have ad block installed, and the header and footer ad div's only display ad's one out of every 30 or so clicks.. The footer is usually a black box, and the top is usually the least likely to show an ad. :\

I also get this error is some ad div's
Bad Request (Request Header Too Long)

I'll just sum it up real quick, the only ad's I can see every refresh are the google ad's.

I made a thread about this as well, and apparently I'm not the only Firefox user that experiences this.
