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. >:(

Don't worry I hacked newgrouds.

1. Click 'my account'
2. Click 'flash submissions'
3. Click 'edit' on the flash you want to edit
4. Click the 'no' radio button where it says 'allow resizing?'

I did this RIGHT UNDER TOM'S NOSE. HE DIDN'T EVEN SEE IT COMING.

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.

if a couple little banner ads (that get disabled when you dim the lights btw) make your shit run that slow, how the hell are you watching the flash movies and playing the flash games on the site? You must have a special plugin that makes just those things work huh?

Hmmm. Seeing these ads getting around the blocked system... They are insulting the user to attempt to make them buy stuff. If this keeps up, I'm gonna have to find a less annoying hosting service >:(

Great work, only thing I can think of is removing the recommended flash from the side and keeping it at the bottom, anything besides the flash gets in the way of the experience IMO, but I can see when it's shoved in your face it'll attract a lot more people so no big deal.

hey, i get what you are trying to do with the anti-adblock banners, but there is no need to call me a "daft cock" in the process.

Yes because that message was specifically for you and not tongue-in-cheek at all.

It's kind of grown on me too, I actually like it now.

Hey don't overestimate the power of a 6.5 year old PC, I have to have all games and movies on low quality to play them and some of the ads on here can be very processor heavy and my little 6.5 year old 2.4ghz Pentium 4 can't handle all of it. Plus it's not just the ads that slow it down it was, now with the dimming feature, the ads and flash together made whatever I was watching/playing unwatchable/unplayable.

With the new dim feature it should help me now. I've enabled all the ads and everything seems good so far. As long as the dim feature works while viewing a pop-up all should be good now.

Same here. I don't need to be called a million ways every time I refresh the page. Some people may think it's cool, but some don't. Good thing adblock is versatile.

Also, the ads now for people who block them are....Insulting! Like the one I have now, Go die in a fire.....Wouldn't that just make more people want to block the ads because they don't want to see that every time they load newgrounds?

Alright, thanks for these tiny, yet important changes!

Adam Atomic has just released flixel!

Sounds interesting, I'd love to see what I can do with it.

BTW some stuff accidentally got pushed from staging that implied the Art Portal might be going live tonight.

Hang on, I never knew the art portal was ready to open soon. That's great!
