I've noticed many artists whom have less than 4 submissions. I've also seen pencil sketches. What up with that? Are they prematurely scouted and soon to be unscouted? Or is an exceptional artist allowed to slide past these portal qualifications? All questions no one will answer, so why am I asking? Oops.. another question...


I voice act, therefore.....

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

I think this destroyed any hope I have of that being any good.

That is just so damn funny. I guess Newgrounds just isn't a girls thing. Although there are quite a few lesbians.....

Age

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

:Pretty balanced if you ask me.

Game Consoles

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

PS3 doesn't seem to be very popular here I see.

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

Same here. Though I don't watch as many Flashes as I once used to; Youtube and other sites have been eating into my time. Though there's the art portal now... which is very addictive...

I do find the overall immature level here annoying, but there are pluses too: a huge audience for animation that is much bigger than on ANY other website, the occasional mature film, the convenience of being able to showcase my animation, music AND art under one roof...

Also

Tom

Whenever you, bob, psychogoldfish, jeff, plato, max, dennis or any of the other admin people i've forgotten have the chance

you guys could make an option to display art thumbnails on ones userpage that link to the particular piece in the art portal.

i'd rather have those under my journal entries than "favorite audio submissions" and "trophies"

just an idea

Damnit, man! Now I feel old.

Hope being a dad is working out good for you. It just seems to get better as they get older.

Take it easy, hope all is well.

Yes, yes, listen to this guy!

Also, please:
-make our "art favorites" display as thumbnails rather than titles
-allow us to see our "art reviews" as with music and flash
-allow us to favourite unscouted art & artists, so that they stay there even if the artist is unscouted for some random reason later on

I don't get it. You have it set as though everyone who filled out the survey only has one of those consoles. What if I had a Wii, DS, and an Xbox?

then you're spoiled

um... i dont think this survey reflects all of the community of newgrounds. its only 8500 people that took the survey. im pretty sure that there is many hundreds of thousands of more people. they just haven't bothered taking the survey. lol

COME ON. THAT MANY??

like half the people on ng that i know are girls... or are they?!?!

You have got to be kidding me. The DS is at 60%??? People just don't know how to save up money. And I also had no idea the Wii was so popular, and most of my friends have either a PS3 or 360. I guess all the 10 year olds on this site filled out the survey.

Yes, that was personal.
