It was back in 2001 or so. My cousin Tyler, who was 5 years older than me and my other cousin at the time, was showing us Tubby Fun Landand Pico's School. It was hilarious to us. We were 8 or 9 at the time. In 2003 I had a strange rush of nostalgia and decided to make an account because of the levels system and to look around again. I then got bored and came back in 2004, but had reluctantly forgotten my account information. So I made this account, which was originally named PicoPyro.

What do you most enjoy about the site?

I enjoy the community. The ability to chat with people from all over the world with the active forums. I also like to rank up my stats on this website. It's kind of odd to say, but the huge collection of flash movies and games is just a 'plus' for me.

Given one day at the reins of the site, what would you change, what would you fix?

This site has been tweaked, re-arranged, and fixed more times than ground zero. I'd say there are a lot of small things that could be added to any site just to make it that better. I'd fix the chat. I'd have more advanced searches. The collection pages would be organized a whole hell of a lot better. For the most part this site is already beefed up to the max, though.

Is there anything you miss, that you'd like to see back? (I.E. Old Blam/Save Animations)

I really miss the old pop up profiles. It was easier to click on someones name and read their info from a pop-up window. Now I have to open up a new page then filter out all the bullshit from the user pages. I'm not saying user pages wasn't a good idea. I'm just saying it could have been pulled off better. Oh yeah, and the whistle song was really goddamn catchy.


You could really go for a chocolate chip cookie right about now...

1. I was searching for flash games on google and stumbled upon newgrounds.
2. It's the only logical choice for a flash community/portal
3. I'd mess around with it and add a bunch of cool secrets
4. I want the old blam/save animations back

Sweeeet! Free wings!
I think that anyone that calls Buffalo Wild Wings "B-Dubs" should be banned from the contest/site. ;)

When did you first learn about Newgrounds?

Like 2003. Madness was the reason I came, and the pure awesomeness of Newgrounds is why I stayed in this magical land!

What do you most enjoy about the site?

The wonderful characters and games that are steadily pumped out by the people.

Not too much. Maybe some art portal tweekage, but thats 'bout it.

Not really. Usually the crap that gets blamed gets blamed for a reason. :P

When did you first learn about Newgrounds? Some time around 2006, this website ruined my childhood.
What do you most enjoy about the site? Right now, it's looking through all the art in the art portal. There's some pretty good stuff in there.
Given one day at the reins of the site, what would you change, what would you fix?Hah, well I don't think there's anything I would fix. I'd probably just mess everything up. Although one feature I might add to the BBS is a 24 hour restriction on new accounts. So they can't make a post, start a thread until the 24 hours is up.
Is there anything you miss, that you'd like to see back? Nothing that I can think of right now, although I wish some of the old members I used to know would come back.

I first learned of the site in 2005. Didn't sign up for another year because I was trying to beat Alien Hominid. Never did

The wonderful conversations we have in the BBS. And the kickass games.

I'd make a system more effective for eliminating the crap and spam flashes. SCUM WATCH '09!

Probably when my best friend at the time showed me a Mario parody.

What do you most enjoy about the site?

Two things-- ease of interface & the whole everything by everyone deal (it's art democratically)

Given one day at the reins of the site, what would you change, what would you fix?

Better rating system for the audio portal; I'd like to see you be able to gain points from rating audio instead of solely flash. Some people are better at music things than flash, and they shouldn't be punished.

Is there anything you miss, that you'd like to see back? (I.E. Old Blam/Save Animations)

Not really. I'm pretty much a fan of most changes made by Newgrounds so far. Unless they mess with
the flash portal.

I was a stupid kid surfing the interwebs for games, and found this place out, I registered because it was cool.

Obviously the flash animations and games.

Well, this seems nice, I'll do it.

When did you first learn about Newgrounds? A friend told me about it. However, when I went on, I was turned off by all the porn ads (in hindsight, I miss them). Later, I became a part of the "Ultimate Showdown" fad. I went to the main site regularly, but then the link changed to a link of the video on NG. I decided to bite the bullet, and make an account. I don't regret it.
What do you most enjoy about the site? I enjoy the culture. Over here, pretty much anything goes, and all the stuff we do is awesome. It's a great place.
Given one day at the reins of the site, what would you change, what would you fix? I'd add the ability to upload other kinds of movies. The big thing with NG isn't it's insistence on flash, but that it is user moderated; crap is filtered out due to having low scores. That's what youtube doesn't have, and it suffers for it.

Meh dunno if I can get them, but...

When did you first learn about Newgrounds?

Hum I was in 5th grade of primary school (elementary school for USish folks) when suddenly one of my friend was playing excite bike trouble . I got hooked by curiosity, so my friend typed the site and I played my first flash game in this same computer room. The game was torture Bill Gates ( a pretty bad game I know :/). Soon after, I founded Teletubbies fun land and Assasins. I quit Newgrounds until 4 years ago, where we had finally a better internet speed. Now my life is fulfilled with newgrounds :D

What do you most enjoy about the site?

Games...movies... why would I love other things than that if I'm on newground? I'm not a fan of forums, but I do get here sometime...

Given one day at the reins of the site, what would you change, what would you fix?

Hum... maybe a multi-language option?.... But my mostly I would like to know when my fav. authors do an other movie/game! Some of my fav.artists are not very populars and I would like to know when they do something :)!

And mostly play Pico school 2 :P

Been playing the games for years, can't remember how long!

What do you most enjoy about the site?

The organization of the media. I love the features and the layout of the Flash and Audio viewing pages.

Given one day at the reins of the site, what would you change, what would you fix?

I would gather the Audio Forum regulars and, with their help, fix everything about the Audio Portal. It has too many problems and loopholes to be taken seriously at the moment.

I first learned about newgrounds from a classmate in my computer class in 2005, people in that class were obssesed with finding game sites to play instead of doing schoolwork.

the thing i enjoy most about newgrounds is the fact that it is based by animators and programmers, for animators and programmers

if i ruled NG for a day i would probably finish the chat, and fix the store, because for some reason i cant buy a t-shirt. I would also get rid of the fucking huge front-page ads

i cant think of anything old that would be better now

When did you first learn about Newgrounds?
When I first discovered the internet back in the day, I played a lot of flash games off of flash dump/stealing sites. A few had newgrounds logos in them, saying things like "if this isn't on newgrounds it's stolen!!!!!!". Eventually I checked out this site and here I am.

What do you most enjoy about the site?
Newgrounds is very good at getting the best flash on the web first. There's really no site out there that has an even remotely similar function. I also love the way the reviews and ratings are streamed right onto the page of the flash.

Given one day at the reins of the site, what would you change, what would you fix?
Not much. Really, I think the sites good as is. Maybe a cap on flash posters whose flash is consistently spammy. And maybe a restriction on crappy flash (here's looking at you, hentaibrutalrape), from winning awards and money. As long as it's stolen images and not original work, why should the flash submitter get anything?
Is there anything you miss, that you'd like to see back? (I.E. Old Blam/Save Animations)

There used to be different components of reviews if I remember correctly. I remember them mostly being pointless, but maybe sections like "plot" and "animation" for toons and "gameplay" and "sound" for games and such.

I first learned of Newgrounds back in 2001. My brother's friend showed him the site, and he in turn, showed it to me. We watched a couple funny movies, but we didn't know that some of them were more, risque, than others. After a while, my parents caught on, blocking the site, and Newgrounds became a thing of the past...that is until ~5 years ago.

There were a lot of people all around this one computer and it was showing the first ever episode of madness combat. We laughed so hard at the funny music mixed in with the gore, that our teacher came over. He laughed too, but told us not to get caught with it. I went to the site where I originally saw it on. No, it wasn't Newgrounds, it was this place called Flash Archive.

Long story short, in search of new madness episodes it led me here, and another 2 years later I decided to sign up.

What do you most enjoy about the site?

The community, really. If it weren't for these evil, vengeful, and comedic bastards (you know who you are ;P), Newgrounds would be a really dull place. I might not comment on half the posts I read, but believe me, I always get a kick out of reading some of the threads in General.

If I were at the reins of this site, I would mod DavidZX for 5 minutes, then ban him for the rest of the day.
That, or create an "NG Hall Of Fame" link above the header, which would display some of the key events, people, or ideas that shaped Newgrounds into what it is.

I would change the scouting system for the art portal. I hate it because I don't see why flash and audio can just submit and have their stuff up relatively fast while artists have to wait forever to be scouted. IDK, it just erks me.

make Pimp level 1 screw around on the BBS. Maybe change that account type thingy here. Also i would give Poozy supreme power over all of Newgrounds. The ads on the front page would be moved.
Id also add a spam portal where everything is instantly saved except for illegal things ( CP/presedent death threats etc.)

I learned about newgrounds when my uncle was on it once.
I enjoy the great community and animations. The admins are helpful all the time
I would change the portal. No, nothing big. Something in your dreams, such as an auto spam blocker.
I really miss some things. A few animations, and many animators.

I had first heard about it through a friend in middle school. I had frequented albinoblacksheep and ebaumsworld (...guhh....) at the time, and he recommended I hit up Newgrounds. I watched the toons, played the games, and was just an occasional visitor without ever signing up.

I would come here gaps at a time, sometimes months, and one time, a year apart just to see what was new...finally, in 2003, when I first saw Rockman Neo, I thought it was cool enough to finally sign up for an account and write my first review just to share my thoughts on it...then I started typing more reviews, gained ambition to try flash animation for myself, and surfed the forums, and now I'm pretty much stuck here. lol

What do you most enjoy about the site?

It's a nexus of creativity.

Even something as simple as a sprite flash is an exercise in the flash author's creative expression, and there are endless possibilities. Huge powerhouses of talent come in, like MindChamber, HotDiggidyDemon, and HappyHarry to name only a few, and they inspire these kids and adult users alike to do incredible things. The more and more talent this site's users, features, and reputation rakes in, it just sets the standards higher and higher.

My friend, Thomas, had a pretty iffy opinion about his own metal music. I suggested he uploaded his stuff to the Audio Portal to gain feedback, and all of his songs are high-scoring. "You are your own worst critic," but it pretty much developed his first fan-base for his solo work.

...and quite frankly, it took way too long for there to be an Art Portal on here. As it develops, it's only going to expand the creative potential of this site further and further.

Given one day at the reins of the site, what would you change, what would you fix?

1. Collab capabilities in the Audio Portal.
2. http://www.newgrounds.com/account/ART/ed it
3. Literature Portal
4. A hybrid icon picture in the forums that indicate a small badge for your Blam/Protect rank, and a "Sex - M/F" under sign-up date.

...I would try to do as many of those in that one day as possible...

Is there anything you miss, that you'd like to see back? (I.E. Old Blam/Save Animations)

Lol...well now that you mention it...yeah. If there could be a pop up, mini animation for blamming submissions similar to JohnnyUtah's legendary Angry Face icon pop up, that would be cool...but all in all, the site has drastically improved over the years. Maybe if there were a newer animated flash portal header.

I'd find a way to get abusive reviews deleted faster, and give users more consequences for the abusive reviews.

I'll randomly grab a user's reply, and post it on my user page, declaring them the winner.

Contest begins RIGHT NOW, Contest ends October 28th at Midnight. I'll be locking the topic and sifting through for a magical winner. Then I'll send you a PM for your name/address and ship you your coupon book.

YOU ARE MAGICAL RIGHT?

LEAVE A SINGLE REPLY, AS MULTIPLE ENTRIES WILL MURDER YOUR SHOT AT FREE CHICKEN, YOU TERRIBLE PERSON.

#1 - Learned about Newgrounds from a neighbor on my floor in my dorm room sophomore year. I think he was showing me one of the Pandemic games, and I got hooked.
#2 - I mostly enjoy playing the different games. It's a good way to pass the time during the day. I especially like the medals for some games (gives me something to shoot for).
#3 - Since I mostly just play games, I can't think of anything that needs fixing, nor would I change anything. I like the site the way it is. :-)
#4 - The only thing that I miss is how you would click the link to play a game on its page and it would pop-up, instead of being embedded. I have an older laptop, and I think this aspect slows my computer down a lot. I know I can make it pop out, but it feels like too much of a hassle now. Probably my one grievance, but nothing real major.

When did you first learn about Newgrounds?
07' from playin' Alien Hominid on Gamecube

What do you most enjoy about the site?
Fake holidays that no one really knows about unless you are a regular newgrounds visitor

Given one day at the reins of the site, what would you change, what would you fix?
Don't get me started! Theres the RATING SYSTEM, ADS, LOADING THINGIES, GAY MOVIES THAT END UP ON THE FRONTPAGE, VIEWING SYSTEM, AND ETCETERA...

Is there anything you miss, that you'd like to see back?
I actually haven't seen much changed, but i miss my gamecube.

P.S. I like wings.

P.S.S. A lot.

P.S.S.S. No seriously, please pick me.

2000 I was with my freinds and we watched a flash called buttplug. I was instantly hooked.

What do you most enjoy about the site?

The flashs. They are quite hillarious! I also enjoy the the club Metal Hell.

I would bring back animated sigs back to the forums. I thought it was so silly to remove them from the BBs. Some of them are the shit.

Not really I just evolve with the site.

2000
kept me occupied
im content with everything right now. the only thing that bothers me is the blam/save process. there's no point in voting 1-4 if you want the points. but i guess its the best way to go or the front page items would never change.
nah, i love the new site and how much its changed. i dont see what the DD complained about. If it's that bad, then find another site. It's not worth getting in serious trouble just to get back at somebody for choosing to run his own site that he paid for his own way.

i first learned bout it when i saw the awesome series

the thing i like most about it is that it has everything,videos,music,games,art. This is obviously the best site ever made!

i would keep everything the same,but it will show whats in the video again,like,mild violence,mild nudity,mild language,etc.

i miss some of the old popular flashes,like salad fingers and scrotum the puppy

to end this,all i can say is,NEWGROUNDS ROCKS!!!!!!

Around 2005. Then i joined 3 years later in 2008

What do you most enjoy about the site?

Many things. The Portal is what it originally drew me to the site. Particulary parodys. Then i started to look at the original animations. And then i joined, and know i love the bbs.

Given one day at the reins of the site, what would you change, what would you fix?

I would immediatly pass it on. I can't control this, and i would problably fuck it up.

The promise of pico 2. Its hopeless now

When I was like 11... (2005ish?)

What do you most enjoy about the site?

The forums. I love talking to these people.

I would make the sig size bigger so I can actually make a good looking one... like 599x100 or something.
