There is still a need for icons, and icon helpers, annnnnd icon mods because submissions still require and use them. They can be seen when you hover your mouse over the submission in the portal, when you link someone to the flash, and also in your profile's favorites/submissions. Don't fret, they haven't eliminated them :).

Thank you Psycho, My hero, and Bob! This is probably one of the best updates I've seen in awhile. This feature might keep me on Newgrounds a little longer. :)
I am biased with this. Before I clicked on a icon and Id usually read the first 3 reviews and the decription before loadin it up. Its not that big of a deal, But Ive gotten used to that format for the longest time. so thats the downside for me. Not really downside, but just need to get used to it.
upside is. I think its awesome that I can now view flash animations in fullscreen, I get to see art bigger,See things i havent seen before, notice flaws, and all that good stuff.
Watch this movie.. I will miss you :'(
Fantastic :P Only problem I see is the vote box is now very much out of the way, people will have to scroll down to vote rather than just being able to vote straight away. If they can't see the vote box, they might not think to vote :p
Sup, bitches :)
It would be nice to know when you're watching a movie or playing a game. and an Add to favs button at the top cause it looks pretty.

No just this one really.
The only thing I dislike is that you MUST start out with the movie playing in the browser window and have to disable the pop-up blocker to open it up. I always watch my Newgrounds movies (and yes, my Hulu TV shows) in a pop-up window. Hulu I can put up with because its a 30 minute show and takes several seconds to load. One flash movie, however, can be loaded instantaneously and start playing before I can launch it in another window.
All I'm asking is that Tom at least put up an option for people to use the previous method of manually pressing the large "PLAY MOVIE" or "OPEN MOVIE IN NEW WINDOW" to view the movie.
It isn't a NEW thing for NG to improve their layout and outlook to run with the new times, eventually all websites have to improve themselves in order for them to continue to attract broader audiences.
I don't much like the audience Newgrounds has right now let alone a "wider audience"
I like the features, the dimming, the enlarging, the fact the flash is on the same page is voting and reviews, but I hate the layout. It renders the sidebar useless, and things like author comments and medals look really out of place. Has potential, but needs work.

Ya whatever will we do without having people blam stuff without watching it :P

Well if you don't like the current userbase that Newgrounds has, maybe you will like the new variety of users that may come in result of the redesign. Art and literature portals will open up new platforms for students and adults to utilize and experiment with and along with them will come new ideas and perspectives.

The more I use it, the less I like it.
I'm really starting to hate the fact that you can't see who the author is, their comments, and the reviews without scrolling down. Newgrounds is a community, the new layout takes emphasis away from who made the Flash, who made the songs in the Flash, etc. It just feels a lot less like NG, and a lot more like all those sites that just show the Flash, like ebaum's world. As a Flash author I feel kinda cheated. Tons of people won't bother to scroll down the page.

You're so hung up on the fact that Newgrounds is adopting ideas from other websites that you forget that this site and community's purpose is a collaboration between many types of publication platforms.

flash is an odd beast but everybody needs to relax, it'll all work out.
I think that's a great concept. I personally like the new look, but an option to turn it off or on for our own submissions or maybe how we view others might be something to look into. Also, maybe use the "Under Judgment" play button at least so there is slightly less lag and loading time.
Ultimately, its a nice look but needs some tweaking.

I'm not going to lie if I've voted on a couple of flashes and feel like depositing experience points I'll just five random movies on my favorites list until I vote enough to deposit.
Finnaly it looks pretty cool
Even as a friend when i stare into your soul I can see your fear of me.Also,I'm voice acting in case you need a voice actor.

But I'm not too keen on this place becoming the average thirteen year old's place to post their Twilight fan fiction and their badly drawn furry anime characters. It's bad enough with the sprite movies and the video game "parody" movies.
hmmmmmm it's cool, less lag, and sleek, but I hope it's beta because some people miss the nostalgic, yet boring, old layout. It could get hard to get used to for me. Great innovation style though.

but yeaaahhh you admin types really should've thought this one through a bit more!
I concur with this (the latter statement). I haven't seen computer-crashing shit in a long time, but the potential for abuse with an auto-loading .swf is pretty high, and whistling it might be difficult if there's no way to stop the damn thing from running.
Other than that risk, I guess I can get used to it. I'm too psyched about the upcoming lit portal to lose any sleep over the vote buttons looking lonely.
Pretty cool i tried it out and i don't seem to have any problems as a matter of fact i liked it. Keep up the good work.
I like the new layout, but unlike many, I preferred having to press play, so that I could have the flash run when I wanted it, not as soon as the page loaded.
That and I can already see NG going the way of Flash/Ugo Player, with stupid amounts of ads now being able to be added on, and thus lagging the game down. It's the only reason I play here instead, other then being able to NOT have the flash start up before I wanted it too.
And to those who say "Just don't click the page to it" well, what's the point in the flash's page if we can't look at it with out the flash suddenly loading?
I just don't like the whole auto-load thing. Hell, I always end up using the pop-up option so it's like the original layout, so this really doesn't do much for me other than give me a bigger screen that I probably won't even use.
I like the idea of related submission suggestions, but that's the only thing I feel like I would ever use. Honestly, I'd like to switch back to the old layout and keep the suggested movie feature. I also like the dimming option, but again, I really only use the pop-up option.
oh no I am choking on a million dicks
Wish I could have the option to switch back to the old layout from before this update, and just make a popup wide-screen.
Everyone thank PsychoGoldfish, Liljim and Bob!
Oh yeah! Thank you. I haven't found any bugs yet. Works pretty well.
Are we a couple more steps closer to being able to embed flash games on other websites and having them link back to NG?
