Ah. I like that M-to-F ratio. I feel so special :3

A large percentage of survey takers definitely lied about their age.
12-year-old's line of thinking: Oh no! I've been jacking off to the shitty hentai slideshows, but I'm not actually 18! They'll find this out and then- IM BUNNED!

As expected for the M:F ratio. Males win by a landslide.

I think that there's way more users on Newgrounds that are under 16 that 10%, and I mean, by a LOT, they just won't take it because they just come, 5 every parody on the frontpage and leave. Kids nowadays have no respect for no one.

I think I'd prefer a Flash Portal-style "Judgment" admission system on the Art Portal over the "scout" system used there currently; that would alleviate the constant begging of people to be scouted, the cascading waves of people being booted from the portal when anyone they or their sponsor or their sponsor's sponsor etc gets booted (many thanks to Captain-Ben for re-sponsoring me out of the blue!), and the dictation and confusion about what types and styles of art are allowed. Just set the score cut-offs (ie anything below score x after y time gets deleted) to whatever level will maintain the amount and general quality level of art that's desired, and it should pretty much work automatically from that point on, right?

(Note: I may be very naive about the amount of work actually required to manage the Judgement system!)

Since Tom said specifically "sketches", I took that as meaning "don't make your doodles public". I'd like to think that that goes for quick doodles created with Photoshop, too.

On the other hand, fantastic things can be created with pencils:

The scout system does have its advantages - for one thing, very importantly, it builds connections, which ratings do not do. Ratings have failed in the music portal, so I can see why they decided to try something new.

My suggestion for making the scout system work:

Make some sort of special category for people who were unscouted because they were down the chain - let them have a small grace period in which they are placed into a special category, apart from the people who were NEVER scouted, and established artists can choose whether to rescout them or not. If they do, then their whole chain of scouts stays intact.

...and if they don't, THEN they get unscouted and the artists one step further down the line get placed in the grace period. So that all the dominoes don't fall at once, but more slowly, and people can save the ones they like.

Seems like it would save a lot of wasted effort.
