Glad to be a part of newgrounds history in posting on those new forums, thanks Tom and Liljim, even if you did lie about the edit button.

The next redesign is set for this year right?
I like the new look, it's much more organized and allows easier site navigation. I don't have any use for the new forums, but I'm sure a lot of other people will enjoy them.
Now sure if this has been posted but, the forum tab at the top right still needs to be changed to list the new forums.
The writing portal in the future!?! A place to put my poems and get them BLAMMED!?!?! :DDDDDDDDDD
I love you Tom
I appreciate all the changes, but this is yet another unoriginal post to say that moving the Where is / How to? forum to the bottom was a bad idea.

Although the Wi/Ht? forum seems sorta buried now that's it's near the very bottom of the list, so I wonder if it will receive even less traffic than it already does, with more people asking site questions in the general forum. I mean, if it's supposed to be a forum for newbs, I would think it would be better near the top of the list so people notice it exists. But I might also be totally off-base, so time will tell.
^This. If you're not moving the Wi/Ht? forum to anywhere need to top of the page, at least place it above the NG News forum. Otherwise it will be difficult for newer people to see it, who will end up posting in the wrong place.
Anyway, it's good to see that Newgrounds is moving forward, and the edit button joke was a good one ;)
The Writing Forum... the inevitable Writing Portal...
This portal will be your greatest challenge yet - if you somehow make it work, things are definitely looking up.
If you need a helping hand with design, moderation, quality control etc., let me know. It'll be interesting to see how this all develops.
NeuroSky MindSet is a set of brainwave sensing headphones that can be used to control games and apps with your thoughts! Here's info about linking it up with Flash. Imagine the possibilities! If anyone makes something for this, let me know!
I remember reading articles about games that strove for this form of mental control nearly 10 years ago (although they were limited market and it was never clear how well they worked)... great to see they're finally making a viable commercial breakthrough with it!
All this seems to bode well for staving off brain-rot in the near future...
Thinking? On the Internet? That'll be the day.
The Official Newgrounds Writing Anthology needs great writers.
If you've got the skills, send us your submission!
Ah, no Edit button is fine. The new forums are awesome.
Thank you Tom and the rest of the NG staff.
Don't pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men.
Not sure I like having to go to 3 separate places to browse new answers and post in my one favorite forum anymore.
Perpetually looking for time to return to the arts.

Sounds great, Tom. Keep up the good work!
As for those mind-reading headsets? I predict it'll be a gimmick contraption...remember when Virtual Reality was hot shit, and people were trying to market Virtual Goggles and all that? They have toys that are hot shit right now where you control a ball moving around with your thoughts...this may be an extension to that trendy technology...what's more, it's likely you'll have to calibrate the bastards every time you put them on, so I aint holding my breath on this "innovation" until we start seeing something to the equivalent of a Macross Plus, brain-controlled fighter jet or something.
