The Real Silent Hill Meetup is happening today and tomorrow! If you live near Centralia, PA, you can come visit a town with an ever-burning mine fire and hang out with a bunch of local NG folks.

If you live in Boston, check out the Boston meetup thread.

We've been watching the Art Portal and making changes to fine-tune it. Please note that works in progress and pencil sketches should only be showcased on your user page and not included in the public Art Portal listing. You also now need at least four submissions before you are eligible for scouting and approved artists can only scout two users per day at the moment, so use those scouts wisely!

The Power of Three summer event is ongoing and there are some amazing games in the works! HappyHarry and Egoraptor have been at the office this past week working on art for their games. Afro-Ninja was here for a few days developing the engine for his game with Ego. The-Swain was here as well, fleshing out plans with PsychoGoldfish and Liljim, also visiting this week. I'll be emailing all the teams when we're ready to take the next big step forward. For now, keep plugging away so you have the potential for some good teaser screenshots!

Over 8,500 people filled out the survey!

Here are some glimpses of data from the people who answered:

Male: 95.9%
Female: 4.1%

Age

Under 16: 28.8%
16-17: 26.8%
18-24: 38.7%

Game Consoles

Xbox 360: 45.6%
PS3: 21.1%
Wii: 50.5%
DS: 60.5%
PSP: 32.2%

In other news, ThoseSneakyFrench has been putting together quite the NG computer case!


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

Yeah, with Project Natal coming soon, I'd think that the 360 would be higher then the Wii.

Well, it depends.
Some are classified as "girlyboys" as I would assume most here on NG are.
But that wasn't an option.

You can at least cut the female ratio in half for people who were doing it for the lulz.

Not only does that 4.1% represent the amount of females visiting the site but also the chance most Newgrounders have with women period.

i doubt the under 16 yrs percentage is that low for newgrounds, but this survey only reflects the hardcore users of newgrounds who actually have the motivation to fill out surveys. regardless, i'm sure the gender ratio is totally off. there's no way that there are 4% females on newgrounds. COME ON. THAT MANY??

woah, thanks for the Boston plug, Tom.

I wish there had been some 500+ more. No one would have taken you seriously when you announced the number.

I was never able to take the survey. So I guess it shows that the majority of people are males age 18-24 that own a DS.

I figured it would have been at least a 90%/10% ratio. =\
