These two words pack so much intense fail into them that it pains me to even read them.

Rewritten from the staff page for yours - and everyone's - information.

Ross was the first person Tom hired when he incorporated Newgrounds as a business in 2000, five years after starting as a hobby. A brilliant programmer, Ross coded the original Grounds Gold user system and automated Flash Portal that serve as the backbone of NG.

After the dot com crash, Ross left Ng to pursue his life-long dream of becoming a school teacher and was eventually replaced by LilJim. After getting that out of his system, Ross came back to NG in 2006 and worked alongside Jim to program the current iteration of NG, launched in 2007.

He left again to work for Yahoo! in 2008.
-

I was there when he left for the second time, so I learned what he did for this website and forged a great amount of respect for him. He's certainly done more for Newgrounds than some of the NG staff.

Doesn't surprise me.. going from Newgrounds to Yahoo is too big of a change in my opinion, I bet all the Newgrounds staff get treated with equal respect whereas Yahoo is giant. Correct me if I'm wrong.

He said "I'M A COP, YOU IDIOT" to which Johnny replied, "rosssss"

...Yeah, I don't think he's a cop.

It's funny how all the '09's & '08's pretend to have known him.

Poor Ross, Hardly anyone knows who he is. I've only heard what the Staff page had to say. It's a terrible fate, being banished to obscurity like that.

This sort of makes me wish I had signed up sooner, then maybe I would know what everyone is talking about.

Maybe. Something I don't know. Someone at the Headquarters must know where he is.

He's in Hoboken, New Jersey, as his profile states. He's doing fine (or was when I last spoke to him, which wasn't so long ago).

He left to have a better job with better pay and not have to deal with a site full of social rejects who obsess over dicks. Good for him!
