This is what I predict will happen in the next update:

- Author & Information Info will actually show up in Classic Mode
- That box won't be in the way of the account buttons in Wide Mode
- The Trophies will be moved right above the Medals in Classic Mode (it's better like that!)
- Some of the blank spaces in both Wide and Classic Mode will be taken out/changed

That's great and all Tom, but it would be absolutely wonderful if you could have it so that we could have it EXACTLY how it was before the change. I appreciate what you're doing and everything, but the wide view hurts my eyes, and in my opinion the bigger sizes look unnatural.

Hopefully there can be some middle ground.

And it probably won't happen, but I like puddinN64's idea too.

But you have to be a member to change those settings. What about the people that don't have accounts?

GOOD IDEA. :D

Being able to choose between the Classic and wide layout formats is great, and I love the additional options for wide layout mode. I know the designs aren't final, but here are some issues that I have:

- For Classic mode, the title of the movie/game you're viewing no longer appears on the page. So if you link to the movie from certain places (i.e. a user's newspost) you won't know what the movie is called before watching it! (Of course the title is displayed on the header of your browser window, at least for Internet Explorer, but people may not realize that.)

- For wide layout mode, the movie/game icon isn't visible. So if you were in the same aforementioned scenario, you wouldn't be able to see the icon before viewing the movie.

- And for BOTH modes, the voting icons are a bit small for the space they're in. I think they'd look far better if they were big enough to completely fill that space.

Well, there's my opinion. Hope it helps you guys. :)
P.S. Since the site's moving towards a wider design overall, maybe we can extend that 25 character limit on flash titles, eh?

I'll play around to see which is best for my submissions. As I said before, square resolutions don't fit well within my small laptop screen. In fact, my game is supposed to be played at the resolution I set it at.

Will redesign keep the newgrounds shapes and just be turned to wide, or you are also changing the graphics in some way?


everything, by me ;)

I don't like the new layout very much at all. Even when you switch to classic mode, the page still looks weird...

Thank you so much for understanding us, you loveable NG staff members XD
I really appreciate the work you put in creating the wide layout, but I prefer the classic look, so thanks both ways. Seriously.

Love the new option of "Play"...awaiting the day when you make it look good too.

As much as I love the new view, and don't plan on switching back, I miss one thing about the classic view is the little X button on the top right, with some flashes like the Street Fighter Collab and it's menu music I miss it so much it makes me wanna cry.

I wanna be able to stop the animation or game while maintaining the current page, Can you be a dear and try that for me :D??

Then buy a larger monitor and crank up your resolution! What is your resolution set to now?

I've been running 1600x1200 for years. I think I was using 1280x960 (or whatever) back in 2000 or earlier.

Not everyone can afford a new monitor or is willing to buy one just so a websites appearance looks slimmer.

I have a pretty large monitor, that's not the problem. I just don't really like it being wide, I somehow find it overwhelmingly big (lol) but that may just be me. I think I'll get used to it as long as you widen the voting bar and stuff.

Nice update!
That play button is really ugly and bland, I wish somebody over at the NG office could pretty it up a bit... Other than that, I'm really impressed with where this wide thing is going and that there's an option to keep it classic as well. Thanks for being so awesome! Newgrounds just keeps gettting better and better :)

Oh, yay. I like the classic mode better. I don't know, I just didn't like the wide layout, it was too much for me. It's still really glitchy for me, I hope you guys will fix this, but the whole page still feels really buggy.

Any monitor that is less than 10 years old should be capable of displaying NG properly. Some people may just need to up the resolution setting.

What minimum resolution are you aiming for? My monitor maxes out at 1920x1080 so it's not a problem I'm just curious.

The exact same thing is happening to me, i've tried all methods i can think of (refreshing, meeting the criteria for earning them in fullscreen pop-up and normal, turning off the internet and turning it back on, and turning off the computer and turning it back on) but nothing works! Please, can someone help me?
