They haven't shown up for me in ages to begin with. :X

No ad block, FF3.

Cool changes, nice to see the wide layout getting better every day. I noticed NG loading faster, and I'm sure that those with slower connections will appreciate it a lot.

BTW, I can't wait for the art portal :O

It's cool how the faster page loading is actually noticeable. :)

Well, I suppose that using Firefox for a while is Ok, but please take note of the fact that the site has a ton of formatting errors on Apple Safari...

I put in some exception rules, especially so I can see the Anti-Adblock ads, but whenever loading a page, it just says

"!!!!!!!!====Load Scripted Ad Here=====!!!!!"

Or something like that in the Ad spot then it dissapears after a few seconds.

Good to see that the blocked small ads that used to cover the Store/Log out button is fixed, looks alot nice now.

Only one thing that i find kinda annoying, even though it's a minor detail - the vote panel is quite far down the page, you have to scroll quite a bit to get to it. I personally think it would be nice to have it right under the flash where those suggested movie/games are right now.

So that's why the layout looked so retarded....

I still like the old one better.

The advertisements for the store are worse than the normal ads.

Make it just a big grey bar or something.

Sounds great Tom!
It took me awhile to get used to the new layout but it seems to be working out for me great now.
Anyway thanks Tom for updating us again on the wide layout.

What did you do to get them to work? I just deleted all of my blocked things from the list, then started reblocking a bunch of offsite ads. Still no humorous ads.

I actually switched back to try it and found I liked it, nice job on fixing a lot of things, especially the lag.

1) Ad-Blocker users no longer get a broken layout.

2) If you turn the lights off and on, your browser's back button will work as expected and not toggle page elements.

Ohemjii!...I have been HEARD! :*)

(Or someone else was smart enough to PM you directly while I was skulking around the BBS. Either way, I'm happy.)


In other news...

Adam Atomic has just released flixel! What is flixel? To quote Adam:

"flixel is a completely free collection of Actionscript 3 files that helps organize, automate, and optimize Flash games; an object-oriented framework that lets anyone create original and complex games with thousands of objects on screen in just a few hours, without using any of the Flash libraries."

There's a lot of potential for flixel to usher in a new universe of awesome Flash games, so we're offering a $250 prize to the best flixel-made game submitted to NG in the next month! If you make a flixel game and submit it before July 5th, PM me with a link!

...I REALLY need to update my set of tools. Still using Flash MX, on a computer that can't run the newer stuff. I'll try to keep this in mind.


Check out the Acapella Music Collab!

BTW some stuff accidentally got pushed from staging that implied the Art Portal might be going live tonight. Sorry, it isn't! More news on that later.

Hadn't heard that, but, "F*ck!" all the same. I want the art portal!

Still a bit indecisive on the new wide layout. One thing that kinda bugs me about it is when you go to classic mode, the title of the flash doesn't even appear. Just OCD I guess.

Tom I'm sorry I block the ads, I would love to run the ads and give the site money but I can't, it's not because I want to block the ads but because I can't run the ads. If I run the ads my old PC bogs down so much the site runs so slowly and I can't buy a new one because I'm broke and hell if I could get a job in this economy.

So if you want ad money from me send me a new PC, or perhaps I will check out flixel and win that $250 to put towards a new PC.

Have you put in the anti-adblock store ads or has an adblock user ad-blocked those anti-adblock ads already? If you catch my drift.

It would be nice at some point to have an update where we get to edit our movies/choose during submission to decide whether we want viewers to see our Flashes in widescreen or not. I could pick a few Flashes that I wouldn't want to include widescreen for but I think most of them might be fine.

And of course I hope we get to see the titles of movies in Classic Mode soon. >:(
